Charles Aresta from Pennsylvania landed his very first marlin, a striped Marlin weighing in at 86 lbs. Charles was on a Princess Cruise ship sailing though out the Hawaiian islands. Here reserved a spot on HighNoon and hit the jackpot.
Captain Trevor had rigged a new lure just this morning and it was out more than about an hour before it came slamming down and Charles jumped into the chair and did a great job of landing this fish (see photo below). We also missed a bigger Blue Marlin which hit the short corner lure but came off shortly.
