1,001 Blue Marlin after 194 Days of Costa Rica Fishing

Pete Rae, captain of the Sea Spud, never would’ve guessed back in February 2014 that his Costa Rica fishing experience would turn out to be as phenomenal as it has been. Just yesterday, after 4 days of fishing, Captain Pete and hismarlin shot crew landed their 1,001st Blue Marlin! Pete has been with Sea Spud for exactly 17 months, 9 days and 194 fishing days.

After his most recent 4 day fishing adventure, Pete and his crew on the Sea Spud landed 57 out of 71 Blue Marlin and 1 Striped Marlin. On day 4, they caught 25 out of 33 Blue Marlin, all on lures! Pete says, “That has to be some kind of record in itself!!”. Pete is very thankful for everyone who has helped him reached this number and hopes that the boats owner, Pat, can reach 700 Blue Marlin after their next, and last, Costa Rica fishing adventure! Pat is only 8 away so we have full faith that they will accomplish this goal!! Congratulations to Pete and best of luck to Pat on their next trip out to sea!
