In the morning Leon said he wanted to target Billfish. We took off looking for some action. We started off early with a big fish. Leon was in the chair and found himself tied to a 500 lb blue marlin! After a brutal 15 mins, we had the fish close to the boat but the fish went crazy and hooks came out. Awesome experience!
All was not lost because about 10 minutes later we found ourselves on a triple striped marlin strike! We were able to land two of the three!
We continued to troll and look for life and as luck has it we got locked into a 110 lb striped marlin! It is very hard to break the 100 lb mark when it comes to striped marlin in Kona, so this is a monster! We missed a mahi mahi later in the day. All in All, we had a blast and will be seeing Leon again very soon!
