Default TEAM RECESS tags a whitey.

long day today but well worth it.
met up at Gene's house at 4am this morning with Tim, Tim G, Wayne(AKA......HAMMY) Gene and me. and enjoyed a wonderful breakfast prepared by Nona. then off to SCM and quick stop at the bait boat for some BEAUTIFUL live baits.
the plan was to go all out to get one ...or more of them pointy nosed fish we've been hearing about around the nipple/elbow area.
we trolled first with combos........nothing, then with naked's.......... nothing, then with livies..............nothing until about a 6' shark.. eats the bait.
the day s wearing down and only a couple of fish are being hooked by others around us but nothing but 2 shark's for us till...........around 3:30 tim is up in the crow's nest and yells out "BILLFISH" I turn and theres a beautiful site of a bill out of the water crashing a naked ballyhoo 30' behind the boat. I grab the rod throw it into freespool and he eats. count to seven and engage the drag till it came tight and it was game on!!! he went ballistic jumping around in a circle then summersalting through the air before settling down and digging in but didn't make a run. tim G has the gloves on ready to wire the beautiful beast after about 15 minutes of tug-a-war a few more jumps behind the boat. when he gets close to the leader he noticed the snap swivel was.....OPEN. but a quick double wrap around his hand and CAUGHT FISH!!!! my first WHITE MARLIN!!!!!
Tim got video of the fight ,the tag and the release which he'll post up when he gets a chance.
sorry if a little long but kinda excited about getting a whitey.
it was a great day with great friends ( willing to let me get all the action to get my first white marlin)
thanks guys.

Cobe that was a great post. You gave us all the details we need so that we can see it in our imagination and share a bit of the excitement you felt. You gave us information on where you went, what worked and what didn't which gives the next guy in line a place to start. The first anything will always stoke you up even more so on Billfish, you have a milestone in fishing checked off but the big problem you will have is waiting for the hook up on the next one. Congratulations on your White and tight lines to you.

Dang Gene or Tim that song is perfect for the video!

Congrats! Whitey may be the toughest of 'em all, they are so hard to hook!

Again, congrats!

Congrats on your fish and that's a great video! All the time spent within nothing going on is worth it for that one shot.
