Proof.......You don't need a big boat

to catch a BIG fish!!

 The crew of 3---all smiles!!
 421.6 pounds
 9 foot in length
The crew, the 17 foot Boston Whaler and the Marlin

This marlin was caught during the North Shore Fishing Tournament last weekend. It weighed in at 421.6 pounds and was 9 feet long. It was landed by a crew of 3 and hauled along side the 17 foot Boston Whaler boat to the Hanalei Pier. Fish is so big it wouldn't fit in the boat.

I know my dad and sister would have been thrilled to have landed this bad boy.  I'd say this fish was a keeper and makes for a great fish story. Congrats to the crew!!


  1. Val, What a beauty!!! Many years ago John landed a big Rock Cod-huge! Because we ate so much for so long, I now hate Cod with a passion. Won't touch it, I still remember the smell of it cooking. Thanks for sharing!
