    Hey everyone, I know word is out, but i wanted to post this for the forum too. My buddy Andy Vo and I really scored big today and landed a 662.2lb Blue Marlin today on my 21ft center console. we were gunnin for Marlin but this beast was a complete surprise. caught on my Talica 25 on one of my Crane Lures. Super awesome day I will never forget. I cant wait to eat and share every last ounce of the meat with family and friends.

    I like how u made it a point to say ur gonna eat every last ounce before u got attacked for killing it. Too funny how weve been forced to be environmentally sensitive here. I wuda dragged it to the scales too. Great job dude. Fish of a lifetime!!!

    Legendary. I'm not sure if there's any other way to describe that catch!! If we could all be so lucky.
    Thanks for the report

    Forced to be environmentally sensitive ? I wouldn't say it's forced. Most people on this board understand that the ocean Doesnt have an endless supply of its resources. The days of catching a fish to weigh and taking a picture is becoming unexceptable. Incredible catch. Just wish it was still swimming. Not my call

    And this guy will probably never top this catch in his life, may never kill another one, and taking this one fish will have no effect on the overall environment. If 50 people a week were taking these fish out of the ocean, I'd feel differently. Let the guys have their glory, and their good eats....... :rolleyes:


    Awesome catch!!!!!! Truly a remarkable feat!!!!! Congrats!
