Madeira getting off to a good start Capt Mat Bowman of Northern Lights Sportfishing is running the Melton International boat the GRANDER this season. He decided to go back to Madeira after a great short season last year catching a bunch of big fish. He capped off his great Madeira season coming home on our 37 Merritt Northern Lights 1 by catching a 1309 Blue with Kyle Vannatta. Here is a nice blue he caught on his first day. They were 2-2 on on blues releasing a 550 and a 650 with his crew David Borges. From the looks of it the boys are going to need help winding them in or David will need an arm replacement soon.
