Fishing for world-class black marlin in Austrailia

An angler goes Down Under in search of a record grander. The technique for catching big black marlin is to troll large, bridle-rigged baits off outriggers at about seven knots, the baits skipping 100 feet behind the boat. The weapon of choice is 130-pound-class tackle—better for the angler but also the fish. A stout outfit can take on the biggest fish but is also useful to quickly horse in smaller fish...

Norwegian cruising tips

A Norwegian crew offers tips on the islands and food of their home waters.

Norway’s vast expanses of coastline are only speckled with homes, making it no surprise that the country has one of the lowest population densities in the world: just 16 people per square kilometer.

It’s a trait that’s thrilling but also can be a little intimidating.

Norway

CaryAli pursues Scandinavian vistas worthy of Odin himself. To begin preparing for a trip to Norway, I checked the weather (cool and rainy) and the charts (much farther north than I’d thought).

S.S. Sapona

A waypoint for cruising yachtsmen, the S.S. Sapona has a history rife with mystery and intrigue. Just south of Bimini, a ghostly apparition rises from the crystalline depths, a shipwreck so sun-bleached and battered it resembles the skeletal rib cage of some Leviathan, long-deceased and now resting peacefully in paradise. But this is no ordinary wreck, and the S.S. Sapona was no ordinary ship.

Having a Blast in Bimini

Having a Blast in Bimini: The PMY Rendezvous went off without a hitch. The inaugural PMY Rendezvous recently made quite a splash in Bimini this past Fourth of July weekend with about 100 guests and 30 boats filling up the slips and luxury condominiums at Bimini Sands Resort & Marina, a co-sponsor of the event. Gourmet meals and fun activities were planned

End of the World Bar, Bimini

Lost in Paradise: I have a confession to make: I love beer. Vodka was a cheap fling, whiskey and I have had a falling out (no pun intended), and I told tequila to hit the bricks after an ill-fated trip to Cabo San Lucas many moons ago. But nestling up to some frosty hops at the end of a
