Huge Black Marlin Released Today

Thirty something Justin from Los Angeles got the surprise of his life today, out at the Gordo Banks fishing, aboard our latest addition to the fleet, “Shambala” a 60 ft Hatteras, captained by renowned local Captain T.J Dobson; he and his buddy got a double hook up on school size tuna…which is exactly what the plan had been at the start of the day. Justin’s friend lost his tuna after a short battle, but a huge black marlin appeared out of the depths and grabbed Justin’s tuna; then ensued a battle which lasted almost three hours, before the monster fish came to the boat. Justin and crew kindly released this beautiful fish estimated between 600 and 700 lbs. The fight may have been shorter if they were targeting big marlin, but they had been after tuna, which is why they were using 40 lbs test.

Anyway, a happy ending for everybody.

Summer is in mid-swing and school is out… what to do with all that energy, why bring them to Cabo of course for a fishing trip….this is exactly what these families did and see what a fantastic time they had. Shown here are:

- Juan Garduño with his three kids; Ian (11 years old), Stefan (8 years old) and Gillian (6 years old) went fishing for half day with a catch of two dorado aboard “La Brisa”

- Paul Turnbull from Corpus Christi, TX and friends released one striped marlin and caught a 35 lbs dorado aboard “Attitude Adjustment”
