My friend Captain Zak Conde just shot me a note and told me that he has just released his 300th Blue Marlin of this year's season. I am sure this is a new World Record for the most Blue Marlin releases in a season. Dave Nowling of Destin, Florida might be the old record holder at 290 Something. Zak fishes the first half of the year in Cape Verde and then follows the Marlin through the Canaries and then to the Azores where he is now fishing. Zak is an Azorian so he ends the season fishing from his home port. Marty Bates, Olaf Grimkowski, Les Gallagher are also in the Azores and are having one of the best seasons yet. The crew of the Dreamin' On just finished visiting and fishing with theses guys and released 3 over 450+.
