Brandon and his wife Trish Bolton from Pennsylvania came out with us for a half day charter. They have been following us on our blogs for a long time now and were eager to have their shot at some nice fish. It wasn’t more than 35 minutes before we hooked into our first spearfish! Brandon launched into the chair to fight his fish and did a great job angling all day! Brandon went on to catch 2 more Spearfish, making it 3 for the day! Already a magical half day charter. But there was more to come!
On the way back toward the harbor, we were greeted by an angry Blue Marlin! We run 5 lines while trolling and this hungry Blue Marlin hit 4 different lures…and failed to hook up. However, when it hit the 5 lure, the hook stuck and we were off to the races, Brandon did an excellent job on the rod staying tight on all his fish even when this Blue would charge the boat. It was a hard 20 min fight but we brought the fish along side the boat and put a tag in it! We successfully tagged and release all our fish today which made for an incredible half day with Brandon and Trish.
