Hot hot Marlin bite yesterday for the Big Rock Blue Marlin participants .., we counted over 60 boats in a knot in a couple of hundred fathoms and there were plenty of fish there .., all together there were 31 Blue Marlin released and one boated along with 11 White Marlin and several Sailfish ..., Patrick hooked a really nice Blue Marlin on the long rigger which pulled off a bunch of string .., Boat owner Mike Rowe got in the fighting chair and we commenced to do battle ...., but it wasn't meant to be ...., apparently the hook set was not deep and after maybe a 10 minute fight the fish pulled off ..., but we still have one more day to score :)) ..., dock mate Dancin Outlaw, Twin Fin, Shifting Gears, Coverage, Wall Hanger, General, each had good releases and sacked up points ..., taking a lay day today ...., check out the Big Rock App

My crew for the Big Rock fished together for the first time in last years tournament and we trolled for 4 solid days without seeing or catching a Blue Marlin ...., started the same way this year until yesterday when a nice Blue piled on the right teaser ..., I snatched it away ....., and Patrick pitched a bait to the Marlin in classic style .., I was happy for patient crew member Bob Heilig to finally see a Blue Marlin jumping behind the Sensation ..., you saw the results from yesterday but my Friends Capt Chuck Lindner, Keith Henry and Rob Warren took first place with a 518 ..., and Capt Alan Willis and the Shenendoah took the lead in the release division with 2 Blues and a White .., yesterday I said that today would be a "Lay Day" ...., but the Fabulous Fisherman's Winner Take All Category is still wide open and we gotta go today ..,
