LAHAINA NEWS— The 31-foot Bertram Exact jumped to the top of the marlin leader board for the year 2010,  for Maui County,  with a 725.2-pound blue by Bryant Kurz.  He was fishing with Captains Chad Leonillo and Sal Tarantino.

They raised the marlin in 130 fathoms of water south of the Palaoa Point Lighthouse on the southwest corner of Lanai.  It was caught on a Seth Kizel glitter bullet lure from the short rigger position.  Bryan boated his fish in an hour using 100-test line on an 80-class reel.

The marlin was 13’5” long with a 10’6” short length. It had a 34-inch half shoulder girth, a 30-inch half-anal girth and a 16.5-inch caudal circumference.

The Exact brought another monster marlin to the scales,  weighing a 706.3-pound blue by Jim Honniball.  He was fishing with Capt. Sal Tarantino and deckman Jimmy Francis.

They had picked up 23 mahi fishing the SO-Buoy ten miles off the southwest shoals side of Kaho‘olawe.  On their way back to Lahaina, Sal headed straight in toward Manele Bay, Lanai.  He was about five miles from Manele when they raised the fish on the short corner position.  It was an hour-and-15-minute fight using 130-class tackle. This was the second largest marlin of the year for Maui County.
