Default "Blue Marlana" Port Eads Trip 8/16

Marlana and I took a month off from fishing, as we had a ton of stuff to get done at work, at home, and on the boat. This weekend marked the end of our hiatus, and "Blue Marlana" made her 7th offshore trip for the year.

We eased out at night, and 9 knotted our way to Port Eads. (Marlana wanted to go see what it looked like.) When we got there, it was pretty cool, but the bugs made quick work of us. Our boat was literally covered in black insects from top to bottom.

Marlana and I hid in the cabin and got some sleep. (I know....we're whimps...but we both HATE bugs!)

We headed out fishing from there and hooked our biggest BLUE MARLIN to date. This fish was much bigger than the 120' fish we measured last year, and it was pissed off!! She hit a Pakula Sprocket on the center rigger, and proceeded to smoke-check our 50 wide.

We backed down HARD on this fish for what seemed like an eternity. We had her close to the boat twice, but never could get the leader. She went deep on us, and eventually we pulled the hooks.

The VIDEO says it all. If you want to watch it, you will have to use a laptop or desktop. For some reason, I can't view it on phones or Ipads..sorry. Perhaps it has something to do with the copyrighted song, but I'm not changing it...it's too perfect!

UPDATE:::may have issue fixed to watch on tablets/phones.

Sorry for the lame post...and boring video...but we try to share all of our trips...good or bad.

The GO PRO sucks at video any further than 20' from the camera. It's too bad, as this fish put on the most incredible aerial display I have ever seen. I tried to zoom-in on my computer, but the images came out very poor.

Tight Lines!

Dave

Nice video @ 1:43 you can see over a half spool gone and the shot at 1:51 get's my heart a pumping with the start of yet another gray hound run. Don't care who you are you never get use to this kind of display of a big blue. MS Marlana shows some mad skills while in the chair.

Thanks guys

....we paddled past petronius, horn, discoverer deep seas, globetrotter, blind faith and thunderhawk. Won't be making that trip again...like to stay local, and seem to do better local.

Saw three boats all weekend.!!!! Guess everyone was wisely at the nipple.

Do you dock at Palofox? We overnighted there in C5 this weekend and saw your stuff on the dock. Neat place and that Jacos' place has great eats.
