Hi JT,

Yes, it was out about 200 yards from where you got your big wahoo. We saw it trailing the lure, and could have teased it into a fly except we had gummies on for tuna. While we were fighting it a beaked whale about 15 ft long came in to "watch" the fight and stayed by the boat until the marlin was released. One of the guys got it all on camera, so we should be able to post them when he gets home and down loads them.

We have had a week of flat weather so we also ran 30 miles out to Diana Bank and caught several wahoo, dolphin and tunas there then hit Guana Cay for bones on the way back. A cold front hit hard today, so the guys went on the beach behind the house and caught bones and grouper off the turtle grass flats.

Marilyn says your Dad needs a spank by the way.
