Left out of Grand Isle, La. on Monday afternoon looking for wahoo off the river. Found brown, nasty water and no hooters! There was one lonely boat on the Midnight Lump, never found any tuna either. But we had a nice catch of mingos and amberjacks that p.m. The next morning workrd our way to a little deeper water and found pretty water, alot of bonitos and small tuna and asmall January blue marlin! Fish ate a flatline, Jeff had to drop back to her once and it was on! She gave us two nice jumps pretty close to boat, Keith had her to boat in 25 minutes or so. Fish was very docile boatside although she had good color, pecs were purple! Hooked right in corner of her mouth, swam off strong. Awesome! Weather was beautiful both days although this front had it starting to blow a little on the ride home. Thanks to Keith, Captain Bill, Rusty and Jeff. Had a great time as always!Tight lines, John

awesome! thanks for sharing. great pictures.

i was talking with a guy from freeport, tx yesterday who just returned from 2 back to back trips to the flower gardens and he says it's going off out there. released 3 blues, lot's of wahoo (nothing with eggs yet, so it'll just get better), and several tuna up to and slightly over 100lbs. sounds like a very good winter/early season!

Thanks guys! It definitely helps get through the winter after football season. We actually had a big blue on for 30 seconds or so last Febuary over there, it truly is a "sportsmans paradise" I just wish the tree huggers in Florida would wake up and let them start drilling here!

Beautiful! I can't think of a better bonus to a winter trip than a blue marlin. Congrats!

Congrats on the Blue! What is the name of your boat?? I work on a 41' Albemarle called "Whoo Dat" out of Grand Isle. The boat stays at Pirates Cove Marina.

Hey Chris, the name of the boat is "Game On" and we are also docked at Pirates Cove. Had a pretty slow trip this week over there. Hopefully the bite will turn back on soon. Maybe we can hook up over there one day, definitely not much to do over there, 'cept fish! Look forward to meeting you, John Godwin 850-232-6256
