We took a vacation the last of June and I got to go on my first deep sea fishing trip. I researched it a bit and found out that we were going during prime Blue Marlin fishing season. I was able to get a boat and my BIL's uncle (Ric) went with me. I had a blast and caught 4 fish. That may not seem like a lot, but i was told by a few that fishing was slow this year. I caught a 67" Blue Marlin etimated a little over 200 lbs that I released. I also caught 2 Mahi Mahi, Rick caught 1 Mahi. Later that evening we went on a snorkeling trip that ran trolling bait to and from a wild life preserve. On the way back while the crew were cleaing mask, i was sitting drikin Mai Tai's watching the reels and say one of the rods bent over. I yelled fish on and that i was taking it so i was able to land a 45lb Wahoo. We had the Mahi for dinner that night. pics below

That wahoo isn't fit to eat. You should drop it off at my house!

Looks like you had a great trip! Congrats.

Well, the boat crew got the Wahoo. The deal was the guest got to catch it and they got to keep it. They said there were 40 people in their company so im sure it went to good use. Problem was, not by me :P.

We fished Kona Hawaii. First trip to the big island. 3 days before the captian tagged a 500 lb blue.

I must say, I did have the best fish tacos in my life that night.
