Default "Donny D" Emerald Coast Billfish Report

We have been fishing so often this year I have not had time to post any reports lately. Here is one from this week in Destin at the Emerald Coast Billfish Classic.

71 boats and 1.4 million dollars in this tournament. We released a 101" blue marlin and caught a 82 lb tuna and a couple 25-27lb dolphins. Had the hooks in 2 white marlins and jumped them off.

John,

Beautiful boat. Tell me about it. How long have you had it? What do you like about the Tiara relative to a Vike 48 or other? Just curious. I have a 38 Tiara Open.

Default Nice post!

Hello Capt. Jon:

Gorgeous boat! I work in the Galati Destin office and are looking at this beautiful 48 Tiara everyday! You're 101" blue was soooo close - but that is what keeps us coming back in search of the big one.

Stop by Galati and say hello - I'd love to meet you and talk fishing.

Cool Marlin pictures. Looks like the Marlin is 1inch long.
