Customer Hiepp recently towed his boat up to the Gold Coast where he stayed for a holiday. Being a keen fisherman he got out offshore from the Gold Coast and fished near one of the most productive reef patches.

Hiepp spent most of the time trolling skirted lures around with spanish mackerel to about 6kg taking the lures, along with a small black marlin which ate one of his skirts too. After a tense battle, Hiepp landed this marlin which weighed around 40kg on his 40-80lb Terez and Saragosa 18000F spooled with 80lb frog braid.
