Went in late May 2012, absolute blast! 4 people didnt show, and they STILL took just me and 1 paying customer. Rough seas, but maybe time of year. Trolled and hooked into a BEAST. Hit the largest rig in the center, spooled it down to the last 100 yards of line. First mate was try to stop the drag by squeezing the reel with his hands while boat driver backed up. Their excitement alone in what we hooked made us realize how big the fish was (they do this every day). The fish dove straight down, they never seen the pole bend like that, even called their other boat over to help us try and land it, our arms alone would have fallen off. After about 40 minutes, our 400lb liter snapped - would have rather landed it, but oh well still awesome. Line was very frayed, they said from a very large marlin most likely due to bill. Said some people fish their whole life to hook into something of that size. Other than that, we caught a lot of skip jack tuna, and used some meat to catch yellowfin by free lining with lava rocks on light tackle. If i make it back out, I will return to them. Very fun, skilled and helpful crew!
