We took out father and son team, Brigham and Dale from Scottsdale AZ. for a 1/2 day fishing charter.
By 7:30 AM we had eight year old Dale hooked up with a nice blue marlin! He did a great job fighting the fish with a little help from dad! Dale’s feet couldn’t reach the foot rest of the fighting chair, so Brigham had to hold onto him to keep him from flying off the back of the boat! After 15 minutes or so the pair got the fish up along the boat side for pictures!
We measured the fish and then harmlessly released the Marlin to fight another day. At 11 feet long, and 350 pounds, the marlin was MUCH larger than the angler! Dale decided he wanted a replica hanging in his bedroom for his birthday which was only a week or two away so we were able to get that going for him! What a great early birthday present!
Great job Dale and Brigham, and Happy Birthday Dale!
