 My buddies took our 26′ Seaswirl down to the 26 rock on Friday and caught 4 wahoo, 1 mahi mahi and 5 small yellowfin tuna.  The highlight of the day may have been the 300 pound black marlin that crashed the spread but refused to stay hooked.

Today we went back down to the 26 rock and caught 3 nice mahi mahi, 2 yellowfin tuna and 2 jack.  The highlight of today was the 400 pound black marlin that came up and charged the moldcraft teaser and then disappeared.   I looked back in time to see him charging the teaser with the whole front of his body out of the water and his mouth wide open.

We had a great day and everyone we know is eating fish for dinner.  I have my sashimi, soy and wasabi ready with a few beers for the baseball and football games…life is good.

There always seem to be some black marlin at the 26…especially during the full moon….maybe next time.
