I got an email update from Jon Schwartz, the photographer who snapped a blue marlin as it rammed the press boat at the Hawaiian International Billfish Tournament in Kona.

He typed a short message: “Pete, the story gets better.”

He and the other media types on the press boat took part in a battle to tag and release a 700-pound blue marlin. I don’t know how the rest of the tournament went, but this has to rank as maybe the all-time most awesome press boat ever to be aboard.
