Yesterday while Our Mary was out trawling, we caught the first Blue Marlin of the season. After the strike, everything pointed out a Tuna, due to the fish' behaviour. It realed out almost the line and then we manage to start fighting the fish. We only realised it was a 760lbs Blue Marlin, when it surfaced. Although exciting it ended up dying, in consequence of the distress. A great catch as it is, and served a good purpose as we donated it to a local Charity association.

Yesterday whilst hearing Captain Jose explaining how the fishh finder works, he asked what a certain spot was, Captain josé answered: "that´s a fish" and on that precise moment the reel went off, striking a Tuna, losing it in the end.
