Thought about goin' today, sort of left it up to Robert; yesterday he discovered he would not be able to go. Next Time... Woke up this AM see it was a mighty fine morning, did some chores and headed down to the boat around 9am. Figuring I might go; I'll see what's happening when I get down there.

Slip neighbor Greg is there asked if he was up for a mid day excursion, he said "sure why not". Pushed off, set out the spread, got in the tower, didn't have to wait long. The stbd flat line went first, that fish would not leave the lure alone BUT he also couldn't figure out how to get the hook in his jaw. Then the stbd corner went and the center... just as quick as they grabbed 'em they let 'em go. At 1 point had 3 tight; ended up with 1 on the port corner the old trusty purple softhead.

Quick Lunar New Year late report (2/3/11). Pretty slow except for about 2 minutes of mayhem. The port corner went (softhead) when we were outside the 1500. It took it very slow and steady about the time we were getting to the 4th rod; she came to life. She had less that 200 yds in the water when she came up next to the boat, at that point the rod stood up and away she swam; looked every bit of 600. The trailing hook leader broke, not sure why other than it was not up to the challenge.

"why not?" ---> that's a good motto to live by. Good going on the stripey and nice 'professional' release on the big girl.

Pat, You are a Marlin Professor. Just got back and hope to get the boat in later this week. Your Banker hours have not gone unoticed by Kathy and the kids. I guess I'll have to go get the bait on my own then grab them at a more reasonable hour. Keep up the grat pics and stories.

Thanks Dean, water was nice picked up some in the early PM.

Way to get it done. Seems like you have been on fire with the marlin lately.

Thanks Joe, sorry I now realize the errors of my ways. Tell Kathy and the kids, their best chance is the early morning bite.

You're sure on a hot streak, Pat. Congrats!

I need to get out soon while the striper action is good. A lot of people are reporting multiple strikes out there.
