Bob and Helen Goins turned in a remarkable performance on the mighty Wanderer with two Marlin releases along with a bunch of Sails.

Helen broke the ice early with a wonderful Striped Marlin release…like most of our CCA NC anglers these folks know what to do with a rod in their hands.

The Marlin have been soft-biting so far this season, so the ever-tinkering First Mate Alex has begun to experiment with brightly colored skirts for the ballyhoo.

These did the trick as the Goins group started racking up Sailfish releases in the middle part of the day.

The finale was also the highlight as Bob reeled in this awesome Blue Marlin.

Estimated over 300lbs., this is one of the bigger Blue Marlin you’ll see around here.

Great work by the Master Captain William and the Super Mate Alex on this amazing day of bill collecting.
