Default Bow Down @ Nakika

Well this is going to be a quick summarized report as I'm still getting all the details(I had something to do and did not go:banghead).

My brother Robert and his two friends and a borrowed Captain took the Bow Down south on Saturday morning and headed straight to the Nakika . They fished all around the Nakika never loosing site of it and ended up catching 3 YF ...one 70# and two 35#, a ton of Blackfin and kept around 8-10, twoDolphin a 50# and a 25# , and then to make it even better tagged and released an estimate 400# Blue Marlin( also it was the angler first and it was caught on a 50wide stand up gear).I have some of the pics now and will post more including the blue when I get them. About the water it was cobalt blue @ nakika and there was scattered grass north of it but no weed lines.(sorry thats all I could get out of them they were a little tired).
