This is a great time to fish offshore. In 2001, on the Saturday of this Tournament, we hooked, tagged, and released a Blue Marlin that measured right at 1,000 pounds. In 2008, we hooked a big Blue Marlin just after 3 p.m. lines out and fought this fish for 3-1/4 hours. The leader broke at the hook just as the mate closed his hand on the leader. The anglers had the fish near the boat about 10 times during the fish but could not ger her the last few feet.
We have won the Wahoo prize in this Tournament and have caught quite a few Yellowfins that just missing placing.
Let's go fishin'!
