Outstanding report (waiting for details)-marlin on fly video

Postby SOBX » Sat Sep 03, 2011 8:04 pm

Good news travels fast, the F/V Delta Dawn out of Morehead City fishing out of Va Beach landed a white marlin on fly today!!! :D

Mate Thomas Bennett, son of my good buddy and world class fly angler Tommy Bennett, sent the short report, but did mention that Kendall Osborne may have been the angler or on the boat???

Whoever and whenever, KUDOS to the captain and crew of the Delta Dawn on an outstanding catch!!! :D

Good Fishing!!!

Fast is an understatement! This news traveled at warp speed!

Yes went out on Delta Dawn yesterday...Capt Pete and mate Thomas are first rate for sure!!! We did nothing but fly fish for white marlin. Raised 14 had 5 bites landed one. I will try to get some video up later today! The ones that got off...hooks pulled. We had a little trouble getting them all the way up to the boat so we could get the swimming away bite. They would tease in then kinda circle around thus some ate the flies swimming toward us so we did not get the best hook sets.

PS long day...left at 0445 back at the dock at 1900! :shock:

Really hope to make it an annual event. Might try again if the fish hang around long enough.

I am not sure if I have my facts right, but Capt. Pete and the Delta Dawn come here for a tournament this time every year. He and Bill Gooch have been talking for years about trying to fly fish for white marlin after the tournament, during the usually good late summer season up here. It was an experimental/training trip I guess. So it all came together yesterday and we went out. I appreciate the invite from Bill and Allen Palmer. We all got some good shots at fish but it was Allen who landed one. He deserved it as he has hooked some whites in the past but never got one to the boat. Here is 2 minutes of the trip...

Allen (Da Man) Palmer !! Awesome !! For those of you not privileged to know Allen, he gets it done even when not battling white marlin. That fish should consider itself fortunate to be caught by him.

Nice vid, Kendall ... and yes, stay on those fish yr after yr (with fly gear). :mrgreen:
