back from the yard and off to the seamounts

 Some puddy and paint and the Dragin Fly is looking good, back in the water and right back out to the seamounts.   The weather and the fishing got better each day as did our guests ability to hook their own blue marlin.   Over the three days, a lot of big dorado and a grand slam. 

28 blue marlin raised, 9 blue marlin releases, 3 striped marlin and a sailfish
