Congrats on the Marlin. I was with my dad a long long time ago when he caught his first marlin. Grand fish for sure. Congratulations

I had no idea they fought so hard, and I was kind of annoyed at my guide for making me fight it the first 50 minutes with no belt. About 50 mins in he said here, wear this belt and man did it help me out.....I could reel on the way down and use my legs on the way back up with the rod......

Little bit better picture of it coming into the boat, man when the sun hit it it just sparkled a magnificent color....and I had no idea the sun darkened them when they were out of the water for a short period

Nice marlin and Mahi Mahi , always wanted to catch a marlin, those Mahi Mahi are fun to catch and nothing more delicious than fresh Mahi Mahi on the grill. Off the coast in ft lauderdale they would go float 2x4s or barrels for the Mahi Mahi and we would drive by them and pull Mahi Mahi after Mahi Mahi off them.

Thanks, took a trip last week to St. Lucia, only thing that stinks is if you catch fish on their boats (the guides) the fish belong to them.
