We fished the WTC and the day started out great. We ran south to 26/44 saw 66.8 degree water so decided to get on the troll we pretty much were in the fish non stop. By 11:30 had 19 in the boat back on the troll with Zucchini being the hot set up and my buddy Johnny yeahs fish on then he’s yeahs Bob I have a Marlin on. I go are you serious and he’s like going crazy I have Marlin. I look behind the boat and it’s tail walking and I’m going crazy myself and just thinking are you serious we have a Marlin on a Zucchini and it’s running straight out and he can’t stop it. It starts jumping over and over on the run like a dolphin does like running hurdles. I get on it my brother directing me we gain ground then it takes off again over and over. We played for 20 min I’m thinking ok got my leather gloves and we’re going land this it’s going to happen. It’s gets to maybe 50 ft and Johnny yelling it’s right there and then it runs again. He’s getting worn out I’m thinking ok I’ll take over let my brother drive the boat and then it’s over it spits the hook. For the rest of the day I’m like did that just really happen I’m screaming like can you believe we hooked a Marlin. I’m saying it was at least 4 feet long. My brother has video most of it is the chaos of chasing it down. I have these photos you need to zoom in but you can see it coming out of the water the video is long so not sure I can download on this site if so I’ll share for everyone. The bottom line this really blew my mind I would say other than my first son being born this is the biggest rush I’ve ever experienced it was amazing. I was told by a buddy you need to set the hook super hard like at least 5 times to try to get it to stick. Johnny did a hook set but not 5 times he kept it tight but knowing what we know now we would have just set it hard to try to get it hooked solid I guess they have very hard beaks so now we know or you guys now know if you get lucky enough to hook up. What’s crazy it just died off after that we ended up with 27 for the day it was a awesome day for sure.
