The blue marlin was caught using ballyhoo on the long rigger.
We also caught two 70lbs yellow fin tunas and two 30lbs dolphins that day.
**Note: because we departed out of Oregon Inlet (where it was being serviced at the time- Wanchese Mariana) and returned to the VA Beach Fishing Center, the Virginia Department of Game and Inland Fisheries (DGIF) did not award the me a citation for my catch. However, the video is proof I really did catch a blue marlin! I know's it small but it's still a BLUE.
Capt. Randy Butler is the real deal! He knows how to get into the fish. If you're thinking of booking an offshore fishing trip, take a look at his website or facebook page. Check him out for yourself...he knows how to fish! http://rebelsportfishing.com
