Last minute charter (8/27/09)

Yesterday a couple showed up behind our boat asking if we were available tomorrow, someone had recommended they charter us. Just so happened we were available today so here we go. Mr. Muhern and his wife are from Florida, there pretty experienced marlin fishing in some of the hot spots in the Atlantic. We didn't disappoint them catching a blue first thing this morning. The fish ate the short bait putting on a great show before we released it, estimating it at 130 pounds.
We fished the rest of the day with no such luck. We told them its not over till its over, we have hooked fish right outside the harbor at the end of the day. And what happened, we hooked one right at the end of the day. This fish was a very healthy 250 pounder, ripping out 400 yards of line on us quick. Great fight, lots of boat driving, great way to end the day.

Aloha, Capt. Teddy Hoogs
