Mama’s First Marlin

Mama’s First Marlin

I am so stoked to be a contributing writer to Hawaii Fishing News Magazine, which in my opinion is one of Hawaii’s Best Magazines! 

Hawaii fishing news

The October issue featured a good friend of mine, Dana Susina, who recently caught a Blue Marlin over 500 pounds soon after giving birth to her first daughter. She went on a Father's Day fishing trip with her family in Kailua-Kona with Bite Me Sportfishing and Captain Marlin Parker on the boat Marlin Magic.

Below you can find some of my favorite images from the day, because I like to think that her lucky Sundot Marlin Trucker Hat had something to do with her epic tag and release. The photos were taken by Carol Lynne.
