I took over 500 pictures during our 3-day fishing journeys aboard the Longfin.
Matt took a bunch of pics and videos too.
What an adventure.

Once the derby ended, we bottom fished for about 1 hour. We got some nice catches, but it was tiring. Fishing in 485 fow, with 14-16 ounces weight.

Ok here we go... should be 4 videos total about 30min if bluemarlin tugging action. Before we start rolling video we clear all rods. This fish has already been on for 5 min and done one spool ripping run. It had come in and slammed the teaser on the starboard side then we right to a white marlin ballyhoo running just behind it... at that point we knew we had a beast on. (Most all our fish hit within 30ft if boat and within sight!)

Lines cleared.
