This is my first trip to Mexico and I had to fish so I booked a day out with Bibi Fleet. I was on a Super Panga skippered by Alex and after a slow start, Alex spotted a marlin and manoeuvred the boat in front of the fish. Within second we had a take and I watched in awe as around 400 yards of line melted off the reel in less than a minute, it made several spectacular jumps during the first run. It was a stand-up fight on 50lb class gear and Alex constantly moved the boat to keep the fish off the stern. I slowly gained half the line back on the reel only to lose it again but steady pressure eventually brought the fish near the boat but it stayed deep and kept moving away. I was very impressed with Alex' boat handling skill and after getting the marlin near the boat for the 5th time, Alex grabbed the leader and we got her onboard - one very happy customer! I've fished all over the world for many species but this is my first marlin. If you're ever in Mazatlan, I recommend booking a trip with these guys, top class outfit!
