814 lb blue marlin caught in Cabo


https://www.theyucatantimes.com/2019/04/prehistoric-beast-ca...

4/25/19 A group of anglers on Sunday reeled in one of the largest blue marlin ever caught off Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, after a 6-hour struggle that continued long after the billfish had been subdued.
Four hours into a fight that sapped the strength of four novice fishermen who had already battled several large tuna, the 814-pound marlin perished.

Sad that they killed the great fish just for fun of killing a fish.
A great beast like that should have been left to live.
4 hours is horrible, 4 hours of torture of the animal :mad:

I kill fish no problem. Killing this would be a problem. Just doesn't look right.

A lot of times big blues will do a death dive during the fight and die at depth. Sounds like they traded off rod between four anglers. If that was the case, IMO should not happen. Only one angler should fight the fish or break it off.

When a Marlin is that large they are always BAD "GIRLS" :)
