Saturday, 08/06/2016, we left the slip at 5:30 am and headed east. The plan was to fish a patch of heavily concentrated chloro water 10 miles west of the Baltimore Canyon. Sea conditions improved at the 40 mile mark and I decided to push towards the Baltimore Canyon with hopes of a marlin bite. We arrived at the west wall and set out the spread. Within 20 minutes we had a marlin up in the spread. She hit 2 other baits before coming tight on the flat line. At first we thought it was a baby blue marlin. This fish was grey hounding / tail walking and almost spooled a 50. After getting her boat side we removed the hook, took a glory pic and sent her on her way. This was a fish of a lifetime for angler Russell Collins. I estimate that this fish weighed in the mid 80's - 90 plus lbs.
