Offshore Virginia Beach June 19

Casy, Bill and I took the Change of Pez to Rudee Inlet to run off shore clearing the inlet at 5:30 am with  lines in 62 miles due east of Rudee at 8 am. Got covered up by dolphin before we could get lines out. Recover and picked at some more and switched over to all Marlin lures and rigs. 5 minutes later line goes off thinking its a big Hoo then it runs for the boat and I am reeling as fast as I can and it comes out the water. It's a big blue marlin. I hang on for 2 more jumps and then the line comes loose. It broke the leader with its bill on the third jump. We continued to pick up gaffers on the marlin lures thru the day seeing 4 more in the spread but they don't come tight. We bring in the lures at end of day and all have slash marks on them. Pulled lines at 3 pm getting back to Rudee at 5:15 pm
