Default Marlin, Tuna and a wahoo!!!!

So we are very pissed off at the cobia and decided to go troll.. about 2 hours into the troll we have a big hit on one of the out riggers but the line rapped the tip of the rod and snapped the line. Less then 20 mins later one of the reels went to screaming. Faster then I have ever seen... After about 30 sec into the fight and half the 30w spooled there is was a billfish. He jumped a few more time then ran like crazy. We chased it down with the boat most the fight. then it when under the boat... thought we was going to lose it then.. but the rode held despite the u shape it was in... finally after he was tired out we got it to the side of the boat... Man what a cool experience.. Thanks to my helper Trever for the extra hands and Preston for the helm work it all came together.. first Billfish.. Not sure if it was a blue or white as it was a gray in color..

How far out? Pelagics are in it seems. I lost a 6 foot sail from my kayak today off of Navarre. A mahi mahi was caught there last week too.

Can't really tell since it's in the water but actually looks like a sword fish rather than a blue marlin....great read and great catch
