In the final minutes of the final day we were in a small pack of 3 boats when our friends on Raven & Reel In both hooked into Blue Marlin right next to us within 10 minutes of each other. With amazing sights of tailwalking Blue Marlin on each side of us, after 5 long days on the water, now felt like our moment & the whole boat could feel the anticipation of a Marlin Bill breaking surface behind one of our teasers. We gave the ocean offerings of Costa Rican Imperial Beer & even threw in a few handfuls of Cheetos which always work! We did manage to catch an Injury time Sailfish in the last moments of the day but the Marlin eluded us.
A great few days on the water & Christoffer’s Marlin will have to wait for another day!
