On January 2, Elliot Marer’s group had a fantastic day on the big battleship Discoverer.
A Big Marlin was hooked up but spit the hook. Better luck next time!
PRO TIP: When a billfish jumps, point the rod straight out towards the fish (“Bow to the Master”). This usually prevents the line from loosening.
By the end of trip, Dorados and Yellowfin Tunas were stacked up thick in the fishbox.
