This is a very cool photo...

How do you catch a big fish? Well first go with the right people, Pisces ofcourse....then choose a great boat and crew, like the Spartacus a beautiful,fast 60 ft Hatteras. Then have a plan. All the boats are currently going tothe Pacific for the more sure catches of dorado, tuna and the odd stripedmarlin. These guys wanted a blue, so they headed the opposite direction tothe Gordo Banks on the Cortez side, geared up to heavier tackle and wereextremely patient while they slow-trolled with a live skipjack...but justlook at the result. Chris Fuller was able to pull in this 525 lb blue marlinin just 25 minutes on 100 lb test line aboard. Chris lives right here inBaja at Los Cerritos just south of Todos Santos.

Here is the angler, standing right next to his catch, on the left with blue glasses.
