1st place Marlin May 30th2010 Mexico
<p>Captain Steve Torres and the crew of the Ana Maria do it again, taking home 3 cars at last weeks 19th annual Marlin tournament held in Topolobampo Sinaloa Mexico, catching the largest Marlin since 1997 6 lbs short of the tournament record 415 lbs! The blue beast was caught with the first 50 wt Tiburon Reels on the Market custom made for Captain Steve, with 130 lb IGFA Spectra and a 100 yards of top shot 100 lb Mono Philament Diamond Momoi. She bit a live Skip Jack trolling a little before 1 pm. We fished 2 days before the tournament learning the fishing grounds. The first morning Captain Steve found a nice structure at the bottom of the ocean perfect for big Marlin fishing 4 miles west of the farallon rock so We decided to fish that area with live bait the whole tournament. The first day of the tournament We released 3 striped Marlins and lost a blue the 2nd day the water temps were a little higher 80.1 and We struck gold I mean Blue!!
