Today we fished a half day in the morning on Exile in Grenada searching for billfish. The bad luck kinda continued for us today. First thing in the morning we had a tuna bite and miss the right long party skirt/ballyhoo and then while getting another one up in the rigger we connected. About 10 minutes in the tuna chafed off the leader since it inhaled the bait. BUMMER.
The rest of the day kinda went the same and to make a long story short we lost about a 200# blue marlin during a series of jumps about 15 minutes into the fight and went 2/7 on sailfish. Day off to get the boat ready for a hard week of fishing. Can’t wait to shake off this bad luck and start racking up the releases!
