Fishing Trip of a Lifetime! By: Tony Carrizosa

On July 31st 2013 we set out on RumRunner ,Viking 68 owned by Mr Carlos Pellas, from Quepos, Costa Rica to a ridge 130 miles offshore. After traveling through the night in stormy weather, we started fishing about 6 am Thursday Aug 1, 2013. By 7 am we had released 5 Blue Marlins. By 10 am we had 10 releases and by 12:30 we had 12. We finished the day going 20-27 on Blue Marlin!! After drifting overnight we fished again on Friday Aug 2 and released 10-18 Blue Marlins. Our third and last day we released 6-16 and departed for home at 2 pm.

Overall we released 36 Blue Marlin and 1 Sailfish over 2-3/4 days. Mr Pellas was joined by his two good friends Hugo Holman and Martin Barcenas. Captain Joe Crawford did an amazing job as well as his 3 mates Alan Nuñez, Climaco Rodriguez, Mario Cubillo. I was fortunate enough to be on this trip as a mate, angler tower spotter etc.
