What a great day on the water and fun to hook up on a giant! We didn't have the video equipment on when we first hooked up, but it was less than 50 feet from the boat at time of hookup, really cool experience for our family! We have fished Cabo, Costa Rica, Hawaii and the Virgin Islands without getting a marlin. Then 30ish miles offshore in San Diego on our Parker, we finally hook up on a dream fish!

    Good for.you brother!! Sometimes you just need to "get it done....at home". Lol... there's an old saying.....even a blind squirrel finds an acorn once and a while. The right place at the right time. It's a real miracle when you think about your pulling a lure through the big blue desert we call the ocean.... and exactly crossing paths with that fish in the middle of no where! ! But you did it!! Bravo...good post and video!!

    Nice video. Great to have the wife and daughter on the boat with you. Hooking marlin is one of the most exciting things that can happen when fishing. Congratulations.
