We (the boys and I) are in Hawaii visiting my Dad as we usually do a couple of times a year. Yesterday, fishing out of Kona, my oldest caught his first big blue marlin. Not exactly the Old Man and the Sea; the Tropical Sun is a very luxurious boat. This fish weighed about 250 pounds – we tagged and released it after walking it along side the boat to make sure it had revived and could swim. What a thrill for a 130 pound young man who has been fishing the Hawaiian waters all his life (his first fishing trip at age two!).
