My Buddy Mark Montochillo took some amazing Underwater photos and video of Blue Marlin in St. Thomas.. He got into a scary situation with some Silky Sharks ready to feed on him.. His story made it onto ESPN and here is a video of his experience..

Maybe next year will be my year. Lots of close calls, but no cigar.
Time to get off this barge and go have some fun chasing fun fish off a fun boat.

I have been doing tournaments so long I really don't keep up with the details, unless of course I win the $.
The picture below is the 130 tackle we are using.

We had 2 breakdowns, and still managed to land one striper and raise 2 blues. I kind of figured we used all of our bad luck up the first day.
Here's the punch.
Seven fished weighed yesterday The largest was 599 lbs. You could hear groans and curses from the captains that weighed in fish. They had big fish and thought they had a for sure daily( which means big $).
One guy had a 800 lb fish that took 6 hours to land. He came in 10 minutes late into the dock and was disqualified.
I gotta go make bait.

I chronicled a 3 hour outing on the upper Conejos river... The fishing was fun and plenty of 10-16" browns and rainbows. I caught and released 18 trout this day. The scenery was spectacular. Gisel made me a few burritos to eat while I was fishing, its hard to get Mexican out of me...
