The fish had another reasonable chew Sunday, although the up to 30 knot winds and rain continue to keep things interesting. In one hour at Number 2 Ribbon, Capt. Luke on KEKOA released three from four to 400lb, making a fabulous start on the first day of this trip. Capt. Bobby Jones has returned to the helm of Fascination IV this week and returned from a few days on the high seas yesterday reporting a solid 700lb-er in the middle. Also in the middle, Capt. Jared on Shaka continues to plug away at the fish, with angler Ed Vander Kruck’s second marlin in two days – an 850lb-er – which crashed the tuna on the last downsea run of the day. She was tagged and successfully released just on dusk. Left: Jeff on the leader on KEKOA. Right: Angler Ed and CP on the deck on board Shaka. We’re out for the first of a five day trip with the returning Scotts today. Although the weather is not ideal, we’re looking forward to getting stuck into it. Peter – watch this space!
