I’m not normally much of a poster on this forum, but after landing more than 100 Blacks and Blues I can say with certainty, that’s not a 500lb Black. At least 600, and probably a fair bit more
And I say that's lite.
So how te hell did they get it in the boat?

definitely over 500, even if the cameral is exaggerating. I would guess 800. Heck of a fish on a panga, those blacks are mean!

Huge would be an understatement,
On another note, I would guess he swallowed the hook and had no chance of surviving the fight...………?

Hi, I'm very pleased to hear all these estimates of weight, as that was my fishing trip :) I have literally felt nothing like this fish in my entire life, my previous record was an 83lb Wels catfish caught in Spain on the river Ebro. And I think the size surprised everyone, Scooby kept telling me to wind, and I was saying its impossible as it's still stripping line! After a solid hour and a half of fight, the crew had to give me a lot of help to get it in, and we still steamed home in the dark. Still my fish though :)
And for la vida, here's a photo of the crew getting it on the boat. The fight took so long that a near by boat came along to watch, and took a few pictures, and even help boat the beast. Thanks guys :) I'm behind the canopy recovering and my dad is holding the rod.

Congrats. That Marlin is definitely over 500. I just landed one in Kona that was 500+ and it was no where near that pig.
