Except looking at the shape of the pectoral fins and the alignment of the 2nd dorsal and 2nd anal fins I would say that is a very nice blue marlin.Yes Black Marlin !!!. I was out to weeks ago and had this guy hanging with us for over 30 minutes all lit up.
Not the best video or picture but I sent it to my buddy that is fishing the Bisbee now. He has also won it before!. He knows Marlins. He said yes a black marlin. In the wrong neighborhood !
Tell your kids you hooked a black marlin. One of only an elite group in these waters.
We were at the time in the 425 area.
