While spending the night at The East Cape RV Resort earlier this week, Blair Sturges stopped by and asked if I could take a picture of a blue marlin caught by his friend Barry near the light house. After several years of trying and a couple of knockdowns that same day, last Monday, November 10, he hung one on a live caballito. He fought the fish for 3 1/2 hours on a 6’6″ Ugly Stick and 4/0 Penn Senator loaded with 80-pound mono until it ultimately died off Cabo Pulmo. It measured 110-inches long from mouth to the fork of its tail and 46 inches in girth, estimated to weigh somewhere between 200 and 300 pounds. He was tired but very pleased with his first marlin aboard Blair’s boat the “Tunarita”.
