Adam Tolman from Oregon came fishing with his family for a 6 hr fishing trip. We headed south which turned out to be a good call. We started off with jumping a Marlin off early on in the charter. We then ran into a big school of dolphin which everybody really enjoyed. Not long after seeing our mammals we get our second solid hook up and it came from a nice 15 lb ono which Adam brought in. Not long after we landed that ono we get a big strike from a large marlin! The fish displayed tons of jumps by the boat before finally taking off away from the boat. This fish stayed down and fought very hard for Adam but he did an excellent job keeping the line tight and applying the correct technique to defeat this monster. We were able to tag his fish weighing in over 350lbs! Exciting day for Adam and this fish is going on Adam’s wall. Congratulations!
Here are some new photos of Slava’s Blue Marlin
Slava Yanson from LA came out with a couple friends for some fishing. They came out with the attitude that they just wanted to have a fun day on the water but it would be their bucket list fish if we could catch a Marlin.
We spent all morning looking for life but we weren’t seeing much and had no bites. Towards the end of our trip we saw a marlin on the surface feeding. As we slid by where we saw the Marlin, one of our rods began screaming off line. Slava was in the chair for this fish of a lifetime! After a grueling battle he was able to land his fish successfully and we were able to put a tag in it. The fish put on a ton of jumps on leader really showing how crazy they can get! Congratulations!
Anthony O’Leary from San Antonio came fishing with his wife for a half day morning trip. With high surf warnings and not the best weather, we headed into deeper water to look for life. He explained to us it would be his dream to catch a Marlin but anything will do for a birthday fish!
Not long into the morning we took a big double strike from Mahi-mahi. The second fish fell off pretty quickly from a big jump it made. Anthony was able to land the other Mahi weighing in about 20 lbs. Not long after landing the Mahi, we get the strike we were waiting for from a big blue marlin. Unfortunately it quickly came off. Anthony had an amazing and fun birthday fishing trip.
Mr. Wallz and his good friend Patrick Mason are in town for a few days and wanted to go out for a half day of fishing fun.
We started off with a few bites early on but they didn’t stick. After missing a couple of Mahi we were finally hooked one. Patrick jumped in the chair first and landed a nice Mahi Mahi about 18 lbs. The boys were having so much fun they asked if they could extend the trip a couple more hours in hopes of catching a marlin. We said no problem, let’s give it a try…
As luck would have it, we then hooked up a nice Blue Marlin. Next up in the chair was Mr.Wallz. After a grueling 30 min fight he landed his Marlin! The fish came in tail wrapped so we had to boat the fish so is not to waste it. Excellent day with fun people.
