Due to A LOT of rain an thunderstorms throughout the area Saturday we postponed to Sunday. We went out in search of marlin and whatever else would decide to bite. We started fishing in the Spencer Canyon and we had a lot of life, pilot whales everywhere, plenty of birds, and great bait marks, BUT no fish. We worked the area hard but never could get a bite so we worked up to the Lidenkohl Canyon. Once we got into the SW corner we found a barrel floating that held a few mahi that we picked up. Then shortly after we hooked into a white marlin on the left long. Mary was on for her first white marlin! After a few jumps and a solid fight, Mary did awesome at getting the fish boatside for a clean release.
We worked the canyon some more without much luck and decided to end the day catching some tilefish. As we were picking up we had a white pile on the right flat line and we got a quick release on the white. Nice bonus fish, haha! We dropped for blue line tilefish for an hour to add some meat to the box and called it a day.
