2018 Little Ship Game Fish Club Garmin Classic & Nautilus Marine Insurance Interclub Shield.

In total we had 18 vessels entered and 55 anglers participating in both sections.

In the gamefish section, 11 Vessels and 34 anglers entered.

Weather Friday was pretty ordinary, with some vessels deciding not to attempt to cross South Passage bar due to the poor conditions. There were 21 Strikes, 14 hook-ups and 7 tags recorded, 2 blue marlin, 1 black marlin tagged, a Spanish and a Yellowfin and 2 Mac Tuna. In the reef section a number of snapper, spanish mackerel and jewfish were recorded.

On Day Two the breeze did not come in early as expected, which affected the fishing to some degree, although the reef guys had a great time, some fishing in the bay and others heading offshore. Grassy sweetlip, Amberjack, Spanish Mackerel and Pearl Perch were all measured. On the gamefish side, the totals came in at 11-7-3, 1 Blue marlin was tagged and released along with a Wahoo and Dolphinfish.

Gamefish results, 32 Strikes, 21 Hookups, 10 Tags, 3 Blue Marlin, 1 Black Marlin, 1 Wahoo, 1 Dolphinfish, 1 Spanish, 1 Yellowfin Tina and 2 Mac Tuna
