Ascension – 3rd Grander of the Year

Ascension Island – Our 3rd Grander of the Year came courtesy of Capt. Olaf Grimkowski. Capt. Olaf weighed a 1,093 lbs. Blue Marlin while fishing English Bay. Fish took a Blackbart Abaco Prowler and was brought boat side after a 35-Minute fight.

Capt. Olaf tells us “The fish took a lot of line and I chased her for 3 miles on the surface until we came close and saw her and decided to take her in”.

Olaf has only been fishing for 9-Days this season and got this beauty. Hope this is a positive outlook to the rest of the season!
