    Hoping to catch my first Marlin tomorrow off the coast of the Virgin Islands. Enough of the salmon ;)... I'll post some pics when I do, 1305 lbs is the current record. I'll be happy at 500 lbs!!!

    Good luck on your quest down there.
    I was in Hawaii just a mere 3 hours and caught my first ever blue marlin, I was so burned out from the trip over (long story) that all I wanted was SLEEP!!!!!!:p

    I understand that. This was a long trip here to St. Thomas. Left my house Monday at 8pm, got to my hotel room Tuesday at 3:30 pm. Ugh!!!
