Another Marlin gets away...

13 December 2008 | North Atlantic
Graham
Mark T's marlin got away the other day with hook, line and sinker, so it came as no surprise to me that whatever was on the end of my line pulling it out at lightning speed was also big. It also got my hook, line and sinker! Today will need to be a muppet production day from the remaining rubber glove fingers as we seem to now be totally out of lures. The muppet looks like a squid (apparently) and has the hook hidden inside with a weight. We tow them along behind us about 20 metres behind the boat and wait for a bite. Some days there is nothing, other days, the whole shabang is destroyed! Well, a small bit of lightning last night, a fairly steady wind, if not a bit on the light side, and we are still making our way to the Island of Rum....
