Heather Frey and her group had a whale of a trip on the Discoverer with four Sailfish released on a five hour trip.

“Did battle with a huge marlin today for almost an hour before he broke off,” writes Robbie Parks in an email. “It made three greyhound runs for all of us to see.”

“Mate Juan Carlos said it was the biggest one he’d ever fought. Estimated at 900+ pounds.”

“It was a beast. Leviathan from the deep. Really whipped me. Captain Carlos and Juan Carlos were fantastic. The experience of a lifetime for me.”

Jacksonville anglers Al Bourgeoisie and Robert Thomason had a wildly productive day on June 13 with several Sailfish releases backed up with several big Yellowfin Tunas.

Great work by Captain Alex and the mega panga!
