Dan Johnson from Hatteras, NC took his three Immigration Officer friends Antonio Carrillo,
Luis Rodriguez Valdez and Carlos Ramirez Garcia for a day on the Explorer.

It was Luis’ and Carlos’ first day ever fishing in the ocean.

Everyone had a great time catching groupers and exotic bottom fish

At the end of the trip they had a great meal at Marlin Bills with the catch.

William Blocher scored TWO fish-of-a-lifetime on March 25 with Captain Fico reporting a pair of Marlin releases.

“Captain Fico put me on the fish straight away,” wrote Bill in an email.

Amazingly, this was on a 5 hour half day trip.

Excellent fish-handling by Mate Antonio to ensure the safe survival of this wonderful.

Also late in the day they hooked up another marlin estimated at 700lbs.-800lbs.

Touched the leader and released. Thought the only photo we have so far is this Bigfoot-esque blurry shot, this fish is a real monster.
