The 2014 Richardson Marine Christmas party was one to remember, with the team all jumping aboard the Seacruiser 7000HT and heading out to the shelf off Warrnambool. A nice mako came on the scene early on so a bait was sent out. It jumped three times then settled in for the battle, which took a good 2 hours to get it to the boat… and then the fun started! Some interesting moments involved in getting it aboard, none on video unfortunately. It pulled the Warrnambool Offshore & Light Game Fishing Club scales down to 180.0kg.
