JOHN KING MARLIN MADNESS We have just completed the Church Mouse Marlin Invitational aboard Catal!ac, aka, the Church Mouse Bus. Over 70 boats en- tered. Each fished at least 10 hours per day. Three marlin were caught for the fleet. That is one fish for every 23 boat-days of effort-- madness ! Marlin are not abundant in Southern California waters. Our season may run from mid-August to early October. The results John of many hours of effort might just be some re- ally nice; albeit very expensive, boat rides. And yet, we continue. We buy boats (battle wagons), gear (casters, trollers) and lures (jewel- ry) that are built with the pursuit in mind. Many thousands of dollars are spent trying to capture a crea- ture that we plan to release. It is an accepted form of madness. Here is how we "fish" for mar- lin. We troll jigs or lures around a huge area, often taking 10 or more trips in a "season" in the hopes that we run over a fish dumb enough to bite. We do this for 90 percent of the time that we are on the water and yet we know that our probabil- ity of hooking and landing a fish in this way is slim. Most fish hooked while trolling are lost in the first few seconds, a "zip." Some are lost during the battle as they "come unbuttoned." And more than a few are lost "at - the boat," which can mean anything from an- gler or captain error to just plain bad luck. Here is how we ac- King tually "catch" marlin. We hunt. Using gyro- stabilized "binos" we scan the water for any tell-tale signs; a bird "dipping," a push of water, a "snitch" (jumping fish). Once located, we pull in the jigs and cast on the fish with live bait. That is the secret. If you want to fish for SoCal marlin, try troll- ing ... endlessly. If you want to get good at catching marlin here, learn to hunt the fish and present a live bait to a "sleeper," "feeder" or "tailer" then join the brotherhood and enjoy the madness. 4 Friday, August 31, 2012 THE CATALINA ISLANDER
