Three Blues 7/19/09

Our charter this morning weren't really interested in targeting marlin. They were more interested in getting some action for their young daughter and if we hook anything big its a bonus. On our way to the north grounds we got lucky catching a little 120# blue which was their bonus for the day. We put the lures back out, with another couple miles before we get to the ledge, where lots of bait fish were assessable for some action. We had the lures in the water maybe 10 minutes when we hooked another blue around 500 lbs. The big blue put on a great show, and after a 15 minute fight we released it in great shape. All this action was before 8:00 a.m. The family of six were pretty impressed and must have thought this sort of thing happens everyday. After getting their young daughter action in on the ledge with some skipjack tuna it was time to turn around an d head back to the harbor. I made one more pass in the area we got our strikes earlier in the day and it payed off with another blue around 170#s. Not a bad day for not even focusing on blue marlin.

Aloha, Capt. Teddy Hoogs
