Frank Wilhelm achieved fishing immortality with this ridiculously monstrous Blue Marlin release on August 22:

Captain Alex and Mate Wilson have once again bested the baddest beast in the ocean with this sweet release.

They also add a nice Sailfish release to round out the scorecard.

Amazing work by Frank Wilhelm and the People’s Champion Harvester!

“So here is how day 4 went,” wrote Steve Betz.

“We made a plan. I had already gotten a Sail so we all wanted Scott to get his wish fish. A Rooster.”

“First bait in the water and less than a minute and game on! The dude caught Foghorn Leghorn!”

“They all decided I should go next. I guess I had Snapper on the brain. I came up with my first Pacific Yellow Tail Snapper. That’s OK someone has to put dinner in the boat.”

“Lisa was next. It also didn’t take long and Lisa landed a beautiful Rooster.”

“Now it was Karen turn and landed her first sail. Yes Rafael Rios it was bigger than mine.”

“Great times with great friends! First time in a long time I have felt this blessed. Thank you Charlie Phillips and Laura Anne for inviting us to share this experience.”

Charlie replied: “We are both so happy y’all took a chance and a plane ride down with us. Descriptions never do it justice, so much to do and see down here. Congratulations on fine catches all around and still a few to check off on the next trip.”
