Blue Marlin in Kona

Last week I fished with Chip Van Mols on Luna, a beautiful 40' Gamefish. The target was billfish. We had 2 hookups. The first one came off in about 5 minutes. The second one pulled the hook after about a 40 minute fight with my son behind the rod. However, even though I did not get video of the bite, watching a 300-400# Blue Marlin come out of the water to pounce on the long rigger is spectacular. I got a little bit of video of the greyhounding/tailwalking, and some of the fight. 

Depth: 4000 feet

Captain: Chip Van Mols
