California boys get into some action!

Shane Hoagland, Jeremy Eiler and Carlin Henderson from California joined us for a 3/4 day charter.  We had a lot of fun with these guys and wanted to show them some action. That’s exactly what we got!   Carlin was up first and was able to land great eating 20 lb Wahoo! Only a few minutes after that we took a big strike from a solid tuna!  Jeremy was next and had his hands full with his big fish. After a very hard 20 min we landed his tuna weighing 110lbs.  We were running out of time but on our way home we got hooked up to a 35 lb spearfish that Shane landed!  We all we so pumped and can’t wait to see these guys again!

Brent Wilson lands his fish of a life time

Brent Wilson along with his wife and two kids joined us on a 6 hour adventure. Our morning started off by missing a couple of good bites. Early on,  we had a explosion bite from a tuna that didn’t get hooked.  Later we had another crash bite from a blue marlin and that didn’t get hooked.. So we were wondering when we would get a hook up!  Towards the end of our trip we got what we were looking for and That was a hook up from a Blue Marlin! Brent did an absolute great job in the chair. The fish caught very hard jumping everywhere then going very deep but we were able to land his fish!

Generally we take photos of the fish along side the boat before releasing, however this fish threw the hook as we were bring it along side.  So a good release.  Before getting pictures of the fish.  Brent was happy to put his fish of a life time on the wall.   Fish was estimated at 300 lbs

Southern Boys!

Well we had all of our good clients back again with us and they all are from the South.  The pictures really say it all on this story… For 6 hours all we did was laugh and tell good stories about hunting and everything else.

We started off with getting John in the chair first on an angry marlin close to 200 lbs. The fish went nuts on top of the water,  but John did a great job keeping the line tight. Later in our trip we got extremely lucky taking a double Ahi strike.   We had two of the guys step up and battle their fish!  Having two huge Ahi on simultaneously is a tough challenge for both the Captain and the anglers.  They did a great job fight these huge tuna.  After about 20 min we successfully landed both Ahi.   We had the greatest day hanging with our previous clients who have become good friends.  Congratulations to all for a great day!

Good day for Jarred and Chelsea

Jarod and Chelsea from Colorado joined us for a 6hr trip. We headed out looking to have a fun day. They were very low maintenance and were just enjoying being on the water.  We were about two hours into our trip and got our first strike from a nice Blue Marlin. Chelsea was first up to bat and jumped in the chair to begin fighting her fish. The fish put on many jumps and jumped towards the boat and Chelsea did a great job keeping the line tight. After about a 20 minute battle we were able to get her fish along side the boat where it was released to fight another day.

A couple more hours into our trip we took another nice strike for a Blue Marlin.  Jarod went next and was able to fight his fish for a few minutes before jumping off the hook. All in all another great day with great people.
