"There He Is"

600# Blue Marlin "Grander"

The fish gods have been looking after a few of us here in Madeira the last couple of days. Yesterday “Tightline” was on fire. We watched them catch 2 fish right alongside us, a decent one around 400# and a big one over 800#. They switched both fish off the teasers and the bigger fish was foul hooked in the pectoral fin taking them just over an hour to get her to the boat. Big congrats to all on board. We were both fishing off Jardim Da Mar and it’s looking the best it has all season. Today it was our turn on the “Grander”. Jonboy decided to run straight to the spot rather than waste time trolling up there  and it paid off. Within the first 30 mins of fishing we raised a nice fish on the long corner. After missing the lure a few times she dropped back and tried to eat the long rigger. She finally got it right and piled on the short rigger. Lainey did an awesome job in the chair and we had the 600 pounder alongside the boat in under 10 mins ready for a healthy release. After a few photo’s she swam away in excellent condition. “Our Mary” pulled the hook on a nice one right alongside us. Hopefully there are a few more fish starting to turn up.
