    went out and day was goin pretty slow, had no fish in the boat so decided to let the auto pilot drive for a while, we were sound asleep when i heard the 50 with a king king go and stop!!!! then i see um shaking his bill outa the water so i slowed the boat and he charged in!!! hanapaa hooked the basterd and the fight was on, 50 lb test no leader, lucky i had my brother on the boat he brought in the lines and the chase was on!!! jumping spinning all kinds but still on, i knew it was only time before the line cut but after a couple runs we got um boat side!!!! cut the bill and tail stuff um in da box keep goin, then we hook a big aku, passed by couple yellow cans and ended up cuttin up aku and traded it for 9 mahis,

    Captin and brother,
    Good goin on the Au, especially on straight 50... I'd a been taking that bet that it would have broke off, good goin'. Not a bad trade aku for mahi either.

    Good job getting that marlin, especially on 50# line with no leader and a small hook! Sometimes the fish just has your name on it. Or did you make it an offer it couldn't refuse like you musta done to get nine mahi for one aku? Thass a sweet deal! :drool: Congrats again on your catch! :appl:
