Barry and Lisa Payne and Mandy and Brian Davidson are some of our very long time return clients. We absolutely love fishing with this family.. We have had great success with them in the past so we were looking forward to see what the day brings.
Lisa has a 600 plus lb Blue Marlin to her credit and last summer, we tagged a 250 lb blue marlin in a tournament together. Today they asked for a Spearfish for Mandy.
So we headed to an area spot where we thought there could be some Spearfish waiting. As we trolled through the area, we raised a spearfish into the spread but it wouldn’t touch a lure. So we pitched a bait back to him that we had rigged up early in the morning just for this scenario! We reeled the lure away from the fish and my bait was in position. The fish swallowed our bait without hesitation and the battle has begun. Mandy stepped up to the plate on this fish! To add to her battle she fought this fish on very light tackle using stand up 16 lb class gear! After in intense 15 min she land d her trophy spearfish weighing in at 40 lbs!
Not too long after we put the lines out the lines goes off again and it’s another spearfish! Barry steps up to this fish and brings his fish in for a very successful release! It was another day for the books!
