Aron Davis brought along his wife, mother in law and father in law (Jim) from California.  They joined us on a full day adventure. In the past week we have been seeing some very good fishing. We have been seeing a lot of marlin and some spearfish with a few ono.    We have completely made the change from mostly live baiting to mostly trolling for this time of year.

Most of the day was very uneventful but we did enjoy each other’s company telling good stories. Finally on the tide change in the afternoon we took our first bite from a spearfish but did not get hooked!  We tried our best to stay back on the fish because we were running out of time!  A few short minutes later we got what we were looking for!  Jim jumped in the chair on a solid 250 lb blue marlin!! This was one of the most angry blue marlin we came across in along time. It never jumped but stayed down and fought super hard!  It was an incredible fight of 25 min but we did it!   We were very happy to have had such a successful day fishing with great people!!!
