Captain Julio Castro of the Pisces Tracy Ann, says this is the 3rd fish he has caught like this in 31 years, locally they call these white marlin, but are they? This species is only supposed to occur in the Atlantic, so what do you think? Is it a white marlin or a juvenile striped marlin?
Yesterday Andrew and Paul from Charleston were two lucky anglers with an amazing fishing day aboard Tracy Ann! They caught and released a very rare “WHITE MARLIN” (60-70 lbs)- in fact it is so rare, that our captain Julio Castro says that it’s his 3rd wh…ite marlin in all of his 31 years as a fisherman – and man he has been fishing a lot!
It was the first white marlin for our deckhand Martin and for Andrew and Paul.
They tagged the fish under the Gray Fish Tag program and we’ll follow up on the story with more info from our anglers, so stay tuned!
Just to mention that Andrew & Paul didn’t stop with ‘only’ a white marlin – they caught and released 2 blue marlin (200-210 lbs) and 1 striped marlin (180-190 lbs), and they kept three yellowfin tunas for a well-deserved dinner!
The marlin took live caballito, and their lucky fishing spot was 42 miles outside of the Cerro.
What an amazing day, great job team!
