Epic.....trip.

If you want a Cow, spearfish or surf....Marla’s has you.


We did a 3.5 day, and it was a day too short...wish we had another.


Day 1: we show up wanna surf....Scotty pulls up on an epic right.....no ones out....no one shoulder hopping.....great f’ing morning.


Next, we head out and spearfish an island.....one of our guys was chasing a cubera into a cave....nailed his ass. Actually it took 2 spears....but he came out (props to Nando on pulling his out of his tunnel.)


Then we are on the skippy hunt for bait, we find them. Unfortunately, it was not our night, no tuna. We head to the squid grounds and make squid, and catch a few Galapagos sharks (released) to pass the time.


Day 2: get up and we got a tuna hanging on the bow, caught on squid. Hits the deck and it’s around 160.


Troll a reef mid day, catch a massive rooster....shit prob 50lbs...went from my neck to my ankles...def a big boy.


Spearfish some more, for nada worth shooting. Threw poppers, got boiled on a popper by a cubera.....missed it. Oh well, it’s fishing.


We make some skippys mid day, tubes are plugged....ready for the zone.


7:30pm.......one of the skips off the starboard corner decides to start flipping out of the air.....literally.....he knows he’s about to die.....big ass fucking tuna blows up on him (he’s gone) we are on.....I saw this tuna hit his ass...it was big. After almost 3 hours...... a 280 (taped) hits the F’ing deck. This is the fattest tuna I have ever seen...pretty damn cool. The guy who catches it has a PB tuna of 30lbs prior....this tuna never wanted to die. Hung his ass hard....widest circles ever and deep thumps on the tip....we knew this was big.


Day 3:


We are hooked up on calamari, 630am I think...another 140lber hits the deck.


We decide to go spear, nothing but guys saw a ton. Just nothing reachable or with the shot.


Head offshore and get a few skips, drag them for a while, but no takers. To be honest, we were roasted and buzzed, prob better we did not hook up


Marlas......man....the whole outfit is amazing. They were amazingly accommodating....it wasn’t their normal “cow” trip and they accommodated a shit ton of surfboards, spearguns, and random shit.


Scotty, is a great captain.....Roberto is an amazing deckhand/cap, and Roberto the chef is returning me home fatter.


Great trip guys......go if you haven’t. This place is magical. If you wanna do combo trips, Marla’s knows the spots.


Excellent trip.....super f’ing fun.


We will be back next year. For damn sure, but on a longer trip. We could have used a couple more days.....we will be back.

I can’t load vids beyond like 20 seconds, error messages.

Good times! I’ve been out with Scottie & Roberto 3 times and got YFT of 270, 225 and 150. I caught jacks at that rock you got the Cubera... I’d rather have the big Cubera!
