Joshua Huehn’s first Pacific Blue Marlin was released aboard Fire Hatt while visiting Kona, Hawaii on a family fishing trip. Joshua and his family, Stephanie, Jeff, and Madison, were visiting from Tsawwassen, BC. We fished down to Captain Cook’s Bay, where the family snorkeled and saw dolphin. On the way back up the line, just outside of Captain Cook the long rigger line started screaming…we are Hooked Up! Joshua fought the fish for about 20 minutes before bringing the fish to the boat where Captains Joe and Brian Shumaker released the estimated 150 pound Marlin! A nice note along with the photo was sent to us by the family stating this memory is one the family never forget! We hope to see them again. (That fish will only get bigger….)
