Perez family (10/8/09)

Fishing has been pretty slow, typical for the offseason, but in Hawaii even when its slow you never know your luck. We went out this morning not expecting to see a thing, if we did, it would be a bonus. Well we became one of the lucky few today. We entered a porpoise school outside Keahou, the school looked pretty good. They were charging along, birds working overhead, we were hoping for a nice winter time tuna. The short bait went off, instead of an Ahi we hooked an elusive winter time blue marlin. Great surprise, did some fantastic jumps near the boat, came in for a healthy release calling it 200 pounds.
After that great surprise making our day, and some of the other boats around us just for seeing a blue. We went trolling again, working some loose porpoise schools offshore we missed what seemed to be a Ahi on the short rigger. It knocked it out hard, left a big explosion but came off right away, no real markings on the lure.
Good day for the offseason.

Aloha, Capt. Teddy Hoogs
