Keep in mind that I am always looking for images for our newsletter; fish, sunsets, sunrises, other anglers fishing, equipment, anything fishing related. I can use them all. Large, unedited images are best. Thanks.

This is John's video of his son's Marlin being released.
My son, who is getting married in a couple of months, instead of sitting in the backroom of a bar, drinking, and shooting the "S" with his friends, wanted to go on a tuna charter for his bachelor party. So, last weekend we went on a charter in Ocean City, MD. At the dock at 4:30 a.m., we went straight out for two hrs & started fishing for tuna. After having caught a false albie, tile fish, and mahi-mahi, we went even farther because there were reports of marlin being seen.
The lines were put out & we were fishing on the surface (similar to poppers) in over 3,000 ft of water when three marlin hit at almost the same time. #2 was on & immediately off & #3 broke the line. The 2nd vid is Dave trying to bring it in & it's just peeling line out. The other lines were brought in & the Capt. backed up the boat. Water was coming in thru the scuppers & the white marlin kept peeling away. The 1st vid is the actual release. They use circle hooks & kept the fish in the water for the best C&R. The first mate estimated about 5-1/2 to 6' long & weighing 60-65 lbs
