The old man and the sea

Big John scores

sunny 84 °F

The day I took off from fishing, Big John landed a 10 foot, 600 pound blue marlin. In the sport fishing world this is a big deal. The last time John hooked a Blue Marlin he was 16 years old. So fifty years later he celebrated the feat again. I don´t remember who bought dinner and drinks but it was a great celebration. John claims that the luck of the boat changed for a number of reasons. There were only three guys on the boat plus the crew, every time John peed off the stern they caught a fish, four sailfish and one marlin and the that I wasn´t along to photograph the experience. Whatever the reason Congrats to Big John!

BIL Rich was on the boat and has a video of the catch so it will live forever...not just a big fish story!
