Many heartfelt thanks to Captain Griffith and his first mate Curvin. They made a lifetime memory for me that for most comes only once in a lifetime.
It was another beautiful St. Lucia morning when the picked up my wife, my new friend Dave from London, and myself at the pier at Sandals Grand. The boat is powerful and well equiped to say the least. There was a no nonsense atmosphere from the start. Curvin set the bait and six lines. Captain Griffith set up the outriggers. Curvin gave us the run down on how to handle the rods set down the ground rules for how to handle a strike.
We trolled for an hour and a half to about 10 miles out without anything happening.
My wife got sea sick and Captain Griffin came back to see how she was doing. He said he would bring the boat closer to the shore lines where it might not be so rough for her.
Dave and I were not paying much attention when all of a sudden -ZZINGGGGG- the line went screaming. Curvin jumped into action. "Someone take the rod!" Dave and I looked at each other and Dave pointed me to the chair.
Curvin coached me with stearn and adamant commands on exactly when to pull, reel and wait. Captain Griffith manuvered the boat. Curvin grabbed the Blue Marlins sword and held him to the side of the boat while Captain Griffith placed the tag. My arms were weary, but Curvin and I hugged and slapped each others back.
This morning Catrin sent me photos that Captain Griffith had taken for me. There was just too much exitement for me to handle a camera too.
They all worked hard and made me smile like I never smiled before!
