Trip Info

Summary

We went out at 8:00 a.m. for a full day fishing with Mr Peter. Thirty minutes out we saw the schools of bonito. But they were not biting. Luckily we caught one. We immediately prepared it to troll with live bait. It was about 8:55. After 15 mins trolling we got the strike. The fight last for one and a half hours. While fighting a 250 pounds black marlin jumped near the boat we first thought that it was the one on the line but then realized that it was another one. The one we caught was a 560 pounds blue marlin. At noon we were already in.
