Cape Verdes – 12th Grander of the Year

Grander Blue for Happy Hooker

Cape Verdes – The world famous Happy Hooker has done it again! Capt. Simon Bracey put angler Chris Lyle on a fish of a lifetime. After a 3-Hour battle, the boys brought in a Blue Marlin that weighed 1,017 lbs. Fish was caught on the Bonze Grimmel.

This is the 10th Grander Marlin caught on the Happy Hooker! Not sure of another boat in the World to catch 10 Grander Blue Marlin.

    Great fish. Not sure how to e mail or get in contact with this web site about other fish being caught around the world. On July 9th our Hawaiian Buddy’s over in the Middle of the Pacific Ocean off of the West coast of Oahu caught a 1,120 Pacific Blue. I have a picture of this great fish. The fish was caught off of a 24 ft trailer boat.
