On our way in with two more today making it 8 black marlin in the four days with the guys from the Goldy! Great fishing!
Of course the final day started slowly but it all happened in the last hour. First fish of the day quickly dispensed by Andrew. And then a double header! David did an awesome job getting the small one in basically from a dead boat so we could chase the big girl. And she gave us a fantastic display before throwing the hook at the back of the boat as Adam reached out to take the leader. More pics to come but nice to get onto a big one and great action to to end the trip!
