Blue Marlin wrap up and Bahamas bound

A great way to end up the Marlin season

We just wound up our Summer season of Blue Marlin fishing in Providenciales, Turks and Caicos. The boat is now back at our homebase in Stuart, FL. after a good ride back (700 miles) and we will sailfish from here until we head to Freeport/Lucaya on Grand Bahama Island in December. Marlin fishing was great in July and August, we raised 20 fish, had 16 hook-ups and released 9 at the boat. Largest fish was 550 to 600 and average size was 350.

Not many boats were there as has been true everywhere but Capt. Ray (Get A Lot) had as good a run as we did this summer.

We look forward to the fantastic Wahoo fishing from Freeport/Lucaya over the winter. We'll be docked at the Grand Bahama Yacht Club in Port Lucaya, Grand Bahama. If you are planning a fishing trip anywhere this winter then you owe it to yourself to check out Grand Bahama Island, a first rate place, with a wonderful hotel variety, lots of restaurants and shopping and good air connections plus good value for money. Believe me, this is so much nicer than Nassau or any other place in the Bahamas, people are great and the infrastructure is beyond compare.
