The Catch
Dolphin (Mahi Mahi)
Marlin (Black)

Fished today with Stuart & Lisa Reid from “Fishabout Charters” in Sydney, Australia. We raised 5 Blue Marlin, caught a Black Marlin and a Mahi Mahi. At one point we switched a Blue off the teaser and at the same time a Black ate the bait on the rigger. Both fish were up and jumping, but it didnt take long for the Blue to throw the hook. Leaving Lisa to catch her first Black Marlin, with Stuart doing an expert job of talking her through it. To get a double header of 2 species of Marlin is pretty rare worldwide, and just goes to show the variety of fishing available in Vanuatu. A very cool experience ideed!
