I am wrapping up a week of fishing the waters around Harbour Island and the south end of the Abacos. Despite the low pressure system that has persisted for most of the time, the fishing was pretty decent for this area. The first day out, which was the best day, my fellow anglers and I boated one blue and one white marlin. We had another blue on but it threw the lure. This had to be the biggest marlin I have ever seen in the Bahamas. I will estimate it to be around 500-600. The beast launched itself across the wash about 30 yards back and my eyes nearly popped out of my head. Unfortunately out least experienced angler was on the rod. Oh well, it was fun just seeing mama marlin show us her profile. The remaining consisted of several dorado, one about 60. The weather just would not give us a break. The last day we went diving for grouper and hogfish. Our goal was marlin, so we never attempted to target the yellowfin that have moved in. The one special feature of the trip was fishing aboard my buddies 44 Garlington. What a beautiful fishing vessel. A boat like this makes fishing all the more spectacular. Until my next trip to the Bahamas, maybe late early August, I will remember that fat blue showing off.
