Today we had the same conditions with 77.6 degree blue water and 15-25 East winds. The action wasn’t rediculous on the mahi today, but we still had plenty in the box, haha. Awesome action. Mid day was slow but endnofnthe day we had an explosion on the left long and the fish took off screaming. We weren’t sure exactly what it was but once we got on top of the fish and it started moving all over we were sure it was a blue marlin. This one was very uncooperative, stayed down and swam all over. After about 45 minutes with Joe chasing it down we got an official release on it but we wanted to get a better picture of the fish so we stayed on it and a half hour later Ryan did a great job and got the leader to me so we could get the fish boatside for a quick release photo. Very fun fish that made the day. We estimated the blue marlin at 200-225 pounds. Great fish!
