|Today only boats of 7 to 9 meters are used for sport fishing so the weather has to be right. Because the number of boats are limited it is best to book ahead. You might also like to bring your favorite lures and even a rod if you are picky.|
Hooking a big marlin is usually the ultimate fishing experience but we also have some very large tuna that can fight longer and harder than most marlin. I personally have a fishing boat and I have frequently hooked up a big tuna that breaks the line before we can land it. We have fought tuna for over an hour and then failed to land it. It is frustrating and we might not be the best fisherman but we have a lot of fun and it makes for good stories.
I am holding the tuna in this picture. Garry Grady of Aore Island Resort next to me caught this beautiful striped marlin. We normally let the marlin go but striped marlin are reasonable to eat so we kept this one.
