Lines in early at about 5am. 30 minutes later at big eye hole get a solid knockdown and screaming drag, then nothing, hook pull.
Lots of flyers and birds but no action even though I was marking bait, along with some larger single marks. Finally get some whites to visit our spread and we go 0 for 3 and hook one up who then spits hook about a minute into the fight. Slow the rest of morning then more whites show up along with another visitor, a estimated 200lb blue marlin, who eats a drop back circle hook rig and after about 30 minutes it is boatside and released. Later in afternoon long rigger gets hit by a white and I drop back and he's hooked up, jumps, and then gone. A little while later another white shows up, is hooked, and we finally get one to the boat. We did work some Toots buoys near the tip and only picked up a single large slinger, about 5 lbs.
