First Blue Marlin

PostSun Apr 25, 2010 8:52 pm

Went on a trip i will never forget, we left edisto marina at about 4:45 am(fri) on a 27ft ocean master.We started trolling in about 400ft and the water was perfect, We found a huge weed line and picked up a dolphin and after a slow couple hours i hooked up a fish I will never forget,she hit the smallest rod on the boat(penn 30w-50lb test) of course....anyway to make a long story short she was atleast 400lbs!!!!! Can't wait to get back out there...

Did you go for a swim?

It is customary to throw the person overboard after their first billfish. Atleast, that's the way we do it here.... :D
