Bruce Bukas from Illinois lands 285 lb. Blue Marlin

Bruce Bukas frome St. Charles, Illinois caught his largest Billfish ever as he landed a nice 285 lb. Blue Marlin today in Kona.  Bruce had reserved the trip earlier in the week and specified he was looking for a Blue Marlin.  He had gone all day yesterday without a strike on another excellent boat, but today, with just one strike, he hit the jackpot as this Blue Marlin hit our long rigger lure with my favorite lure, Baby Blue.  Bruce intended to release this fish (we like to release all healthy billfish), however during the fight, the fish became tail wrapped, so we decided to take the fish.  Bruce also landed a nice Mahi Mahi earlier in the day.  Congratulations to Bruce and we look forward to fishing with you again.
