Default Blue Marlin and Sword

Just me and Ellie this weekend. We put lines in around the nipple and worked our way to the SW. We found a fishy area later in the day and switched over to live baits, then it happened... The nervous 3lb blue runner popped the left rigger clip. The reel went into freespool and we got to watch her eat 50 feet behind the boat. By the time we got the other lines cleared and started the chase, she was well into the backing of the 80lb setup. With a little teamwork and a lot of effort on Ellie's part, we got the release at just under 45 minutes. We set up for swords and despite a slow night, we managed a decent fish which Ellie caught as well. We spent some time the next morning trying for a white, but it didn't happen. Fun trip! Sorry the video is a little long and the gopro doesn't do justice to the size of the blue.
