Default Donny D III MBGFC report

I haven't posted a report of our trips in a long time, just kind of lost interest.... I will try to start again for a while....

Started down at Devils Tower Saturday Morning and worked that area with several other boats. Not much happening down there so we made our way north on Sunday and picked off a half dozen tunas up to 86lbs, a small wahoo at 34lbs and released a Blue Marlin... The Marlin measured 103" we went 1-2 on Marlin bites over the weekend...

Short video of the release is at this link

Good piece of film Jon. What do you do on your Go Pro as a safety precaution from loss? I know the head rigs are tight but I've had some green fish in the mid 3s shake me so hard that they shake my cap off and I know they will shake a Go Pro off. Friends of mine have lost their Go Pros and just quit using they on the head band mount. Do you use some type of safety lanyard on yours?

Thanks for the nice comments everyone.... Slim, we just roll the dice on the head mount..Haven't had a problem so far, I'd consider it the cost of doing business if we lost one. That being said, I have jimmy'd up a lanyard on the rod that I have been trying to get underwater Gopro footage with. The mate that worked with me last year had a float that Gopro makes attached to the back of his headstrap...
