From Carp to Marlin……How about this as your first Blue Marlin? A fish of 1320lb caught off Ascension on the 18th of February. The angler was Berkley Gulp bait tester Kevin Gardner….Fight time was 3hrs and the fish was in bad condition at the boat so it was taken in and weighed. Great fish well done to the team of Captain Olaf Grimkowski and Phil Riley aboard the Harmattan.
For good measure Kevin also caught a 234lb Big Eye Tuna.
and released a Six Gill shark estimated at 900lbs……Bet those Rainbow lake carp will now seem a lot smaller in the summer Kev.
