We had Mario and his wife from Austria for a 6 hour charter. We hooked into a nice marlin early off in the morning but after about a ten minute battle, it threw the hook. Not long after we hooked into a bigger marlin weighing about 350 lbs. Mario battled his fish for about 25 min before we got it to leader. This fish put up a huge fight with white water everywhere as danced all over the water. Mario came all this way to Hawaii to catch a marlin, so it was very rewarding being able catch this fish and then release it to fight another day. Congratulations!
