If you book a two- or three-day overnighter between July 1 and November 15 of this year, Bobby will guarantee you at least one solid Marlin hook-up. After that it's up to you to bring the fish successfully to the boat. This is a challenge that few captains would dare to offer, and too good a chance for anglers serious about catching a Marlin to pass up. Don't wait to call for more information.
