Although we're technically a month away from the end of 2014/15 UA Billfish season, I have updated the Billfish Hall of Fame...

Quite a drastic decline in numbers... wonder if it is a reflection of reduced fishing effort, no reporting or fewer fish being caught...

Probably a combination of all of the above!?!   :dunno:

Overall numbers down but interesting to see the spike in Spearfish caught
