Ken Smith Jr. celebrated his dad Ken Smith Sr.’s birthday with a sweet fishing trip to Costa Rica. The whole family was in on the birthday surprise:

We are stoked to report that they caught a true fish-of-a-lifetime on board the Explorer.

“At this very moment, I knew this fish wasn’t very happy.” wrote Kenny on his Facebook page.

This Black Marlin is easily over 300lbs. and put up a fight like a bulldog.

Great release by Captain Fico and Mate Elias was the perfect way to close out this awesome experience.

No great week of fishing is complete without a end-of-trip dinner, and this late day Yellowfin Tuna fit the bill:

“It was real Costa Rica, until next time!”
