Marlin #3 and #4

Unfortunately I wasn't on the boat for these, which the captain (left) caught (and got into the boat) all by himself!  The smaller one is a striped marlin, which made really good sashimi.  The larger is a blue marlin - 130kg.  The captain told me he wants to break his single-season record this year, which currently stands at 16 marlin.  At four before May - when it usually begins to get good - we're on a great pace.
He had six hits today including a double.  Doubles happen a couple times/year, but we've never been able to land both fish.  Same today as he lost them both.  But I can only imagine how crazy it must have been for him trying to manage two marlin and the boat by himself.
