:2gunsfiring_v1:Went looking for dinner and Shoots had two boats stopped fighting ahis when we got into the sweet spot then after couple of hours of sightseeing we head to S buoy then the fun starts we take a solid hit on the port corner pole that smoked half a spool from the 80.....my 7 year old daughter paris is going off yelling pull it in....:2gunsfiring_v1:bugga takes a second run and heads to the bottom taking 1/4 spool forcing me to bump up the drag lever....30 minutes later its high fives. Our first Pacific blue (corrected) marlin looks to be over 200 lbs.

Changboy,
Congrats on a fine catch! With all those boats on the water this past week, there were many disappointed fisherman coming away with nothing. That is a good size marlin for sure. I think it may be a PB marlin by the looks of the tail..not sure, but if it is a Stripey, that would be close to the state record of 220+ lbs. Regardless....a great catch!

Hey Brian,

WTG on your marlin! I'm impressed that you got it in your boat and must have been fun getting it out! (I had a whaler before too!) Congrats!

I never know PB get stripes too, and yes it was a bugga to get out of the boat over the railings. Getting it in was, real easy cause the transom stay so low.
