638 lb Marlin Caught with 30 Tiburon Reel
The guys heading out a little after 7 am for a short 6 hr day we went in between the rocks at Islas marrietas and El morro fishing for Jack Crevalle and Roosterfish, when captain Steve Spotted a big fin popping out of the water he trolled to the direction where he had saw the fin going and boom around 9:30 am We had a big hook up which ending up being almost a 6 hour fight with a 638 lb Black Marlin! The Marlin bit a live bait bullet tuna on a Tiburon 30 Reel and Calstar 58 graphite Rod at El Morro If that is not a test for gear I don't know what is? After the hook up first on the reel was client Gennelly Wall She put up a good fight for about an hour then passed the rod along to Tomas Pisker. "the Marlin was jumping and diving I was tired out" Tomas put up great fight for 2 hours then it was up to the crew 2 hours later the Marlin took its final leap and was tangled in the line so we had to pull him in total time 5 1/2 hours on a Tiburon 30 wt reel aboard the Ana Maria 35 ft Cabo Yacht.
