Default Marlin on dead cigar minnow.

Pretty good trip last weekend out of Destin but not a lot of red snapper. I like to always have something on a spinning rod such as a "livey". The baitman was out so all had was "deadys." First strike on the Penn Fierce 2 6000 spinning rod was stout AJ of course I had to release it, but fun to catch never the less. Rigged up another dead bait and swore I had another AJ. I gave the rod to my buddy who is on his first ever trip. Watched the line and then saw it jump out of the water and do magic!! I about had a heart attack. After about an hour we managed to get the fish to the boat, take our pictures and videos and release it unharmed. Not 100% its a small blue or a white. You never know what you may get out there.

Great day. BTW 1 snapper and he was an inch short. Story of my life. lol

Spearfish have a much longer running dorsal. Think it's a white with a shorter bill.
