On December 11th, "Yahoo" the 42 ft Bertram was in for a surprise; they were cruising near the coast, three miles off of Pozo de Cota on the Pacific, on the look out for dorado. Angler Craig Alterman, from Newport Beach, Ca. was on board with friend Alvin Franklin from Rockwall, Texas. They were already into the dorado, when a large marlin hit a medium size green/yellow lure on Craig's rod. It took him an hour and a half to bring the 450 lb fish to the boat, whilst Alvin managed to release a striped marlin.
