Fishing Legends

Catching my first marlin in Bay of Islands

Video by Cole Doyle

On March(my 14th bday) earlier this year I got the opportunity to go game fishing for a week on the legendary boat "the godfather".  A couple hours went by when we hooked up to my first ever marlin that we landed after a feisty 45 min battle. So after a couple more hours of trolling around we decided to call it a day and went back to weigh station to send the marlin off to get smoked and It weighed in at 100kg.
