Left out of Poc sat nite about 7:30 headed to Falcon, it was a little bit choppy so it took us 2 hours to get there, we either missed an early bite at Falcon for Tuna or they weren't there. Did not catch anything but Horseyes and lots of live bait for Sunday. Sunday we started trolling at 5:45 and caught a little wahoo early. We live baited on Dutra and I have never had a sailfish 25 foot off the back of the boat swimming with his sail up and lit up for 2-3 minutes. He wanted our blue runner but it was to big for him, we threw ballyhoo at him, even thru a popper for tuna at him but he was not at all interested and took off. We then had something hit the blue runner and I could not get a hook in him, maybe a blue who knows. We then started trolling and had 3 knockdowns out of the clip from billfish and could not stick one of them. Finally we caught about a 200 lb Blue.Check out how he was hooked in the pic, he did not have a single hook in him, he was lassoed around his top fin and thru the mouth. Later we caught another wahoo and a dolphin and finally stopped at some snapper holes on the way in and caught 10 snapper. Had one hung lower, mandy kay from the board with me and 3 other guys, had a good trip and a lot of fun. Will post some more pics later when the other guys get them to me.

Here is a few pics of the sailfish that we could not get to bite, he was just swimming around the boat with his sail up. Does anybody know how to put a video on here. I have the video on dvd disc but figured the file was to big to be uploaded.

Congrats on the blue Flieman. It was good visiting with you all Sunday. Look forward to it this weekend if you all make it out. Those are neat shots of the sail. Not sure how to do videos.

What a trip, six different bill fish in the baits in a day. It seems that maybe Mr. Marvin the Blue Marlin is in greater numbers this year. There have been alot caught. It was diffently a good trip when you take 8 cases of beer and bring back 5 because of all the fish being caught.

You can upload videos just like pictures, but you are restricted to a 2 meg file size, which usually means smaller image, shorter duration, and significant compression to meet the limits. If you have a video editing program like Windows Movie Maker you can do some of that automatically. You can also upload multiple short video clips as long as each one fits the size limits.

This was a great trip. It went far beyond my expectations, and boating that marlin was an experience I'll never forget. I was wondering how much weight the marlin would gain by the time I made it back to Colorado. If you say it weighed 200#, then the flight home only added about 50#!!! You guys come to Colorado this summer and we'll dry fly some big rainbows!!! Oh yeah, I almost forgot.... It was clear and sunny and 65 degrees here today!!!

You got to reduce the size of pics and load them as a attachment.

I know this trip was a few weeks ago, but I'm trying to attach a pic, and have been having problems. Maybe I got it figured out now...
