Augusta’s Morning News with John Patrick, Mary Liz Nolan, and Chris Michaels

Weekdays 5:30AM-8:45AM

When Thomas and Courtney Yonce make a bucket list, they make it count. The Harlem, Ga couple had listed blue marlin fishing in Hawaii as number one on the list several years ago.

Unfortunately, covid cancellations spoiled that dream, until this year. The wait paid off, and paid off big. Thomas reeled in a 12 ft, 870 pound blue marlin. 

After almost an hour, they were able to get the blue marlin in the boat. The couple decided to give the meat to one of the locals in Hawaii, and plan on mounting the catch in their living room.

Check out the pictures that the couple sent us!
