    Fantastic. I want one of them for my carcasses, talk about manual handling, brilliant.
    ​Love to catch & release one of those, what a great fish.

    Hemmingways and Ocean Sports Watamu Villages Kenya if you want a shot at the records

    Totally awesome. You drink in the bar with fibreglass record heads hanging over you.

    On my todo list one more time before the long dirt nap

    Maybe one day if I win the lottery, it would be one of my greatest wishes to catch a fish like this & then return it!

    Caught (and released) a few of those in a few different places - in another life - seems like a long time ago.....

    The fish was very green - not ready to boat or release - this could have gone very wrong.

    Marlin are very, very strong and unpredictable, unlike eg tuna which always fight in the same way.

    Exciting sport though - Kenya is a good place for general blue water sport fishing but for a big marlin there are better places - seems to change frequently but Madeira, the Azores, Cape Verde's, Venezuela ( - yup, been there) and of course Cairns.

    We get plenty of them down here in sunny Whitianga (NZ). Only the occasional black in our local waters, but a good number of big blues each year, usually between xmas and march. Only ever hooked one and had it on for about 8 minutes. Figured it was only bill wrapped. HUGE buzz all the same.
    Do it if you ever get the chance.

    I cant be sure you will get Cairns type weather here though
