    Now that the summer is here in full swing the Marlin and large Ahi’s have joined the party. Ono’s and Mahi-Mahi are always hanging on.

    Craig Lovelace with a 592.4 pound Blue Marlin caught with Capt Tim. on Start Me Up. The fish took a black and blue Jr. purple Softhead lure in 80 fathoms of water off of Uku Mehami. Great fish Craig!
