We were hanging out at the Cabo marina and had heard several sales pitches for marlin fishing boats, and chose a small business with a big boat. Nothing fancy, but they really knew what they were doing. We went out at the crack of dawn and the deck hand set everything up. I was ready to give up after a couple of hours when they started biting like crazy. We had two on lines at once with my husband and I reeling in like crazy. Wasn't sure who would tired out first: the fish or us. Boy was that hard work! They fought and jumped into the air just like you see on sport fishing programs. After fighting them for about 45 minutes, we got them in. Mine was about 150 pounds and my husband's was about 130. The bigger one was healthy and we released it, but the smaller one swallowed the bait so it was filleted. What an experience! The captain and crew were very good about giving us help when we needed it without taking over. I absolutely loved it!
