650 lb Blue Marlin - First Big One of Season

Yesterday the weather was hot and muggy and we got the first smattering of rain we have had in 11 months.
The Wigger family from Nashville, Tennessee had been out for a half day on La Brisa and like it so much wanted to go out again, this time they ended up on Cabolero our 31 ft Cabo. They were fishing just three miles off of Lands End, when they had a monster marlin come up hard on a yellow and black lure. Andrew and Steven shared the work struggling for 55 minutes until the fish was at the leader. Back on shore the father and son combo were shocked to learn that their catch was close to 650 lbs. Katie Wigger, also released a striped marlin, just two miles off of Lands End. Good job Captain Lupe!
