good stuff Simo. I had a awful day Tuesday, trolled all day and raised 1 marlin which was only half interested anyway. Trolled all day monday and got 4 marlin and a sail up, plus 2 unseen hook ups that pulled the hooks. Same lures, same water, just no luck. I also found a school of yellowfin tuna both days but the sharks were pretty close by.
Well done mate, they're great fish.

Sounds like a memorable day. Were most of the marlin around that size?
