Samoa – 41st Grander of the Year

Grander Blue Marlin for Southern Destiny

Samoa – The first one is always special and you can just tell how excited Capt. Chris Donato on Southern Destiny is for catching his first Grander Blue Marlin. Capt. Chris weighed a 1,025 lbs. Pacific Blue, that he got on the troll with a Black Bart Monster Bait. Took him two and half hours with as much as 60 lbs. of drag to get her to the boat as she was hooked deep into her bill.

Capt. Chris actually has our favorite web address Grander Marlin . Go check him out if you want to find out more about fishing in Samoa on the Southern Destiny.
