The Catch
Dolphin (Mahi Mahi)
Marlin (Blue)

Mr Klaus and his German friends wanted to give it a try at Big Game fishing though they had no fishing experience at all.The sea was a bit rough and two of them were starting to feel a bit seasick.We decided to move downwind where we found a school of big bonitos(Skipjack Tuna).We hooked 4 at the same time and lost one.It took the first timers about 20 minutes of good reeling and laughs at each other before the fishes were onboard.I must admit that they were were not listening to our advice but had fun anyway.Soon afterwards when we returned in the same school we got a marlin strike on the long corner lure and it was game on.Half an hour later the 125 lbs blue marlin was on the boat.we continued trolling and on the way back we caught 2 dorados.The bigger of the two weighed 32 lbs and it was a tough fight as it was caught on a small reel.It surely was beginers luck for them as the other boats who were fishing on that day did not see a lot of action…........lucky us…........
