The Discoverer was excited to welcome back Ted Markow’s family for a return trip to the blue water.

Just like their trip last year, Team Markow did great. They enjoyed a fun Sailfish release, then nagged big Dorados.

They also battled a Blue Marlin but it spit the hook before it could be billed.

“Kevin and Carlos know what they are doing,” wrote Ted. “I watched Kevin prepping the equipment and bait on the ride out. He pays attention to details. Carlos sees the fish when they are going after the attractors. Kevin brings the bait close to the fish in order to hook them. They did not miss many fish.”

“What great memories for my 15 year old and 11 year old daughters. Not may 15 year old girls can say they fought a 200lb plus blue marlin for almost 30 minutes.”

“Great times!”

Captain Carlos on the big battleship Discoverer knocked it out of the park on the 26th with angler Ted Markow and his family. This mystery billfish led off the action:

Juvenile Striped Marlin or Spearfish? we aren’t sure but it was a fun fish to fight. They also nabbed several Sailfish releases. This was young Piper’s first Sailfish:

For the dinner table the kids grabbed a nice Dorado and a fine Yellowfin Tuna.

Great job by this fun fishing family.
