Zane Grey Reef

"Plus, with the landscape of huge mountains that drop straight into the ocean, there is deep water right next to shore so that you don't have to make long runs to get into the good fishing that is so typical when you are fishing for marlins and sailfish."

The fishing is so good here because the Zane Grey Reef — whose famous namesake visited the area on his adventurous journeys to the South Pacific in the 1920s — sits squarely in a major migratory corridor for billfish, according to Raleigh Werking of Tropic Star Lodge.

"We call it the Zane Grey Reef, but it really is three pinnacles or columns that come up from the ocean floor in 350 feet of water to within 125 feet of the surface," Werking said. 

"There's good upwelling there, which provides nutrients that holds an incredible amount of bait," he added. "As (the) billfish migrate through there, we hold them pretty well because it has an incredible smorgasbord of sushi there for them."

Priestley plays his quarry. 

The result of this submerged buffet is epic blue-water angling action for black marlin, blue marlin, striped marlin, dorado and sailfish.
