CAPE VERDE: first monster size blue marlin of the season

On Cape Verde waters it took until May to get our First huge blue marlin, but it was worth the wait.

Tpè Capt. Randy Hodgekiss on famous charter boat "Dreamin’ On" weighed a 1,290 lbs or 584.3 kilos Blue Marlin. This is what we call a "record fish” as she is the 7th Largest Blue Marlin ever to be weighed in the Atlantic ocean.

The last year (2015) has been very interesting on large Blue Marlin in the Atlantic with the 1,254 lbs. Blue Marlin caught in the Cape Verde on Big Oh and the 1,305 lbs.

We are still waiting for all the details, but the fish took a Ruckus on the center rigger. Fish had a 21” tail girth measurement
