All the black marlin you ever want on a 30

That's how James described the black marlin that refused a bonito on a 50 and ate a dink bait on a 30.  After getting hooked, she just swam along on the surface, James backed right down to her and got the release.   When Berto tugged a little on the leader, a 500-600 pounds of fury was unleashed, bolted off 200 yards in the air then turned and charged the boat.  The Dragin Fly doesn't blow smoke but James did give her the gas   trying to get out of the way of that big marlin.  Also a double digit day with the sails.

Congrats to Capt. Bubba Carter on the Tijereta, he got one of those 250+ pound tunas yesterday.
