Hooked up, Blue Marlin!
Great day on board the bite me with our good Buddy Dale.
Dale is lucky and we always have a good day with him on board!
A pallet found us and we caught a few gaffers and slingers before the mess of dolphin disappeared.
We went looking way off shore of hatteras (50 miles) for a different feature and different matter but did not find it.
We put the plugs out to chug towards home and lo and behold.
Hooked up Blue Marlin!
bout a 475 pounder expertly angled by Dale!
did not get a picture of him cause there were only three of us on the boat!
Nice fish jumped and stayed on top the whole time and Dale caught him quickly!
