Default 9/7 Another marlin and mahi

Left an invitation on the need a crew section and Golfer72 came along for the trip. We met up at Daybreak at five with storms all over the place. Waiting until six and headed south dodging showers all of the way out. Arrived at the spur to see blended water, but not blue. Picked up six mahi and headed south quite a ways to find the bluest water I have seen in years. Trolled after locating a good bit of bait and hooked into a nice marlin. Stand up gear in a center console makes for a tiring fight! Great day on the water and enjoyed the company.

Should be noted.. He landed this on a 80w standing up in a center console with a bad and i mean bad belt and pretty much a dead boat fight- didn't chase this one down.

Fish had some serious shoulders to him during the fight which was for all reasons a real fight.

Kudos to the angler on this one- well deserved and succesful release! Great time on the water

Congrats!! The Terrafin Chlorophyll image showed the blue water to be 8 miles south of the spur when you were there...was it?

The blue water began around 10NM south of the spur.
