    Left the harbor on the jet ski around 6:30 and head straight to "Sierra". Found some birds and boats so trolled around for awhile but nothing happening. Trolled the 500 to "Romeo" and it was deserted. Continued on the 500 to "Victor" and the water started to calm down. Saw several other boats on the 500 and 1000 but the VHF was pretty quite. Got to "Victor" and nothing was going on but went ahead and trolled the ledge up and down to Kaena Point, no love. Decided to head back to "Romeo" and ran into a large school of dolphins. There were several boats working them already so we decided to join in. After a couple of rounds decided to call it quits and troll home (1/4 tank of gas left).

    After leaving the group of boats working the dolphins our 9" lure gets hit and the reel starts to peel off. My son grabs the rod and sees his Marlin jumping about 75 yards back. I slow down the jet ski to 4 knots but still heading home. With less than 1/4 tank of gas, I didn't feel like chasing the fish down. Jared's one goal this summer was to catch his first marlin and after losing 3 in the past two months I was praying that he gets this one in since school starts on Monday. Takes him about 15 minutes and he finally has done it. Monkeys off his back. I guess he can now go back to school feeling satisfied that he meet his goal.

    Oh, BTW when we were landing the fish. The marlin decided to leave Jared a memory of his first marlin. The marlin stabbed his leg and broke skin. I told him that he'll probably end up with a scar to always remind him of his first marlin.

    Congrats on the spearfish and the battle wounds. Not bad for a dad and a son on a pwc.

    Good going Jared and Dad. I'm sure he can't wait for school to tell all his friends. What a way to end a summer break.
