Sail Fisher sinks

Local 4Experienced game charter fishing boat Sail Fisher got into major difficulties on Wednesday morning after landed a blue marlin weighing over half a ton.

Fishing approximately three miles off Punta Rasca, Palm Mar the Captain and two Russian clients had to be rescued by nearby boat Dotsy Too, after making a distress call.
