Checked one off the bucket list!
I caught a marlin!! I have always wanted catch a marlin so we chartered Legend with Captain Tony. I have never been big game fishing so the crew set me up with equipment and showed me the proper techniques. We started to troll and before I knew it we had a marlin strike the line. I knew this was going to be a great day! We caught an ono shortly after the massive marlin strike. But the highlight was after lunch. Sitting back relaxing and taking in the stunning coastline, all of a sudden I heard the reel screaming. I jumped up strapped in and the fight was on, what a thrill. This is something I have dreamed about and it was even better than the dream. I was reeling in my first marlin. The fish was jumping out of the water and the adrenalin was pumping as I could see this massive fish get closer to the boat. Without the crew and captain helping tell me what to do I would have never been able to get this big guy to the boat. We released this marlin back so hopefully you will get a chance to hook up to him and experience the thrill of a lifetime. Thank you Captain Tony! See you next time I am in Hawaii.
