My wife and myself have fish out the Puerto Adventouras port 7 times prior to this trip and have all but once caught some fish. One fish species always managed to somehow avoid our lures and that was the billfish that frequent this area in rather large numbers at certain times of the year. We always had fish come up to check our baits out but just couldn't close the deal. Not until this trip however!! We booked the Anna Mary III. Requested we start at 7 and everything was on time and smooth. Started fishing around 7:20 am and by 10 am had 2 BIG Mahi Mahi and my daughter finally broke the billfish curse with a beautiful sailfish in which was released after a couple of pics!! Then from 10 till 2pm we ha zero bites and was actually trolling our way back to the marina when all hell broke loose on the outside outrigger when a huge Blue Marlin hammered our bait and flew through the air with the bait in its mouth! Within seconds she had our reel almost stripped as I could see the spool. The Capt slammed the boat in reverse and we started getting line back.. I could go on and on about this but will say this fish tried every trick in the book to throw the hook but, after 2hrs and 15 mins we got this beautiful girl boat side and released her. We estimated her to be around 250 to 300lbs. All I can say luck was finally on our side and what a fun crew to fish with!!! The only negative is the equipment was a little worn both the reels and for sure the fighting belts but, it all worked out and and we ALL will forever have the memories of both these beautiful fish dancing out of the water!!!! Thanks guys!!!
