Some continuing good fishing from the Hawaiian International Billfish Tournament Tuesday, with the fleet of 31 boats catching 12 more billfish. The numbers included 10 Pacific blue marlin, one striped marlin, and one spearfish.
Notable catch of the day was aboard the Marlin Magic, captained by Jason Holtz, which boated a 531-pound blue and propelled Jason to second place in the captain standings. Notably, Pacific Blue was hooked on a blue for five hours – but lost the fish at the close of the day.
