I'm a poor working man caught in love in a rich man's sport. Deep sea fishing 27 times, only caught marlin on two occasions. The first time was fishing a Los Suenos tournament and I caught three blue marlin. The very next day I caught a striped and with seven minutes left in the tournament, I caught a blue. Needless to say, I am so hooked. There is nothing like doing battle with marlin. But, work, vacation time, limited funds, etc. make the opportunity extremely limited. That said, I read every article of_ Marlin_ magazine I can get my hands on. I know the information is top notch. I need to make the most of any opportunity, because who knows when the next marlin will strike, but when it does, I'll be ready and what a great day it will be.
