This past weekend we were involved in a two day tournament. On our first day we landed a 456.5 pound Blue Marlin, putting us in the lead. On the second day of the tournament Keith Oldman reeled in a nice 300 pound Blue Marlin. We tagged and released it for another 200 points. In the end we finished in third place. It was an fun weekend and a great experience.
Chuck Weatherwax from California booked High Noon for a morning four hour trip. As we were leaving the harbor we just got done explaining how to reel use the tackle and the stinger came down. We were hooked to a little blue marlin for about ten seconds. A fun way to start the morning. Then we didn’t have a bite until the last ten minutes of the trip. Again the stinger came down, and this time we were on. When the fish ate the lure he never showed himself, and went straight down. So automatically we thought it was a tuna. After a thirty minute fight we finally got to see him, and we were wrong, it was a beautiful Blue Marlin. Chuck did an amazing job reeling in a fish of a life time. After missing a lot of fish the past few days it was really nice to finally get one all the way to the boat. Thanks Chuck we hope to see you again some day, and next time the girls can come and join in on the fun.
After an amazing morning half day trip with the newly weds. Theall, Kristin, TJ and Jeffrey joined us for a afternoon three quarter trip. Within the first hour we had a double Spearfish lost one and landed one. A little while later we had another double lost one and landed one. We were on a roll. Then we had a spearfish on the stinger TJ jumped in the chair and fought it for a while then it came off. With less than an hour to go in the trip we hooked a nice Blue Marlin Theall got in the chair and went to work. After a long strenuous battle he got her to the back of the boat for a perfect release. Crazy awesome day from beginning to end. Thanks for the good times.
Glen and Richard from Florida booked High Noon for a three quarter trip in search for a Blue Marlin. We searched high and low for anything and didn’t have any luck. At the end of the trip we made it back to the harbor just in time for the service for Randy Llanes, a fellow captain who had recently passed away. We joined in on the service with the rest of the boats, and when it was over Glen and Rich decided to extend and continue fishing. With our spirits high and excited to find that elusive Blue Marlin we headed north and it paid off. The stinger came flying out of the rigger and line started ripping of the reel. Glen jumped in the chair and started the battle of a life time. After wearing out the fish Rich took over and finished it off beautifully for a perfect release. Such an amazing day with awesome people to share it with. Thanks Glen and Rich for the terrific day.
