The Glenns 8/5/09
Today we went to Otec buoy, the buoy was alive with life. Bait was foaming everywhere, we were marking some big Ahi and were seeing a couple marlin feeding. But nothing wanted to bite our hooks. Watching a couple Ahi get hooked and marlin around us we waited patiently for our turn. Just about when we were ready to leave a marlin took our short live bait. The fish ate it funny only to get lassoed in the process. A fish that's lassoed gives you no leverage as an angler, allowing the marlin to go where it pleases. Our young female angler did a great job to get the 200 pound blue to the boat in 20 minutes only to have the hook pull right at the back of the boat. Tough luck, but still fun for her to have the thrill of the fight.
We lost another blue on the way home outside the harbor.
