Ok so second part of today's antics by the pirates of the El Tio (our boat). Aft…Ok so second part of today's antics by the pirates of the El Tio (our boat). After Dave Ostertag (Eric) graciously let me have first shot at a marlin (hint:he's a very nice guy). We high fived cheered and thought someone was really watching over us. Apparently they were because 20 minutes later and 3 more marlin bites we were hooked up again. Now Eric had his hands full with another big striped marlin and we were on top of the world. After a hellacious battle on very light tackle, Mr nice guy got paid back with good karma and another 140 to 150 pound marlin was landed. Wow we are some lucky boys :)
Gotta think Rod (my dad ) and Walt (Eric's dad) were watching out for us today, laughing as we sweated and grunted our way through 2 epic battles.
What a day and what a experience 5 marlin hookups 2 catches 3 marlin free jumping around .....incredible !
