Default Blue Marlin on the Maddie DII

Left the dock at 5:30 Sunday morning to slick calm water and headed towards the pass. Tried briefly for bait and then pointed the nose south and headed towards the nipple. Dropped baits in the bluest water we have seen all year around 8:30 and starting trolling southeast. Found a nice area with lots of bait and she hit the starboard shortline around 10:30. It dumped about half a 50 wide and made multiple leaps on the first run and then went straight down. 40 minutes later we had it boatside for a photo op and then back down she went. It was my first Marlin so words can't describe the experience. Here are a few pics....

Wow, shocker! Who would have thought you would catch a blue marlin on a blue/white Ilander. Congrats on the fish! Special congrats since that was your first! I hope your crew appropriately made you take a swim when you got back in.

Do you remember your depth and water temp by chance?
