    Way to go Loren....Of course I've seen you do that before! (about 18 years ago on the John Henry) Good to see you're still catching fish and wrapping rods!

    You can cook a large roast size with the skin left on skin side down of the barbique. By leaving the skin on the meat will stay very moiste. Trim the skin after you finish smokeing it. Use indirect heat and lots of soaked mesquite chips over the top of your charcoal. My best marinade is: 1/4 cup Jack Daniels, 4 cloves of garlic, half cup red wine, half cup lite soy. soak for 3 or more hours and baste often on the grill. If you want a little heat rub before you grill with MacCormic's Montreal Steak Seasoning from Costco. Slow cook all the way through.
    Chill and slice thin. It can also be chopped and made into marlin fish salid, like tuna.
    Marlin is tough if you over-cook it steak style. Therefore if you are grilling it as a steak cut it thin 1/4 inch across the grain and sear on high heat 2 min. per side. Server with mustrad sauce. 1/ 2 cup plain yogart,
    1 /4 cup gray poipone mustrad, 1 table spoon chopped fresh dill, salt and pepper to taste. Enjoy in good health.

    Ive had it Raw on the East coast and it was fantastic. Not sure what model Marlin it was but it tasted great.

    I hate when the Gaff runs into the Fish. LOL

    Loren try this you will love it.
    Smoked Fish Dip.
    Any kind of smoked fish chopped to the consistancey you like.
    you can even flake left over fish or shark as well.

    1/2 cup of mayo ( anykind)
    1/2 cup of sour cream ( regular kind)
    1/2 clove of garlic chopped
    1/2 chopped sweet onion
    1 small can chopped black olives ( i use half)
    a dash or 2 of worchestshire sauce
    a dash of italian salad dressing
    any kind of seasoned salt and pepper to your taste

    chop or flake fish to your liking and set aside.
    mix ALL remaining ingredients until well mixed.
    add fish and gently stir to mix well.
    chill and serve with green onion garnish

    to do the thicker one change out the mayo for softened cream cheese and mix the sour cream and cream cheese really well then the rest of the ingredients.
    Congrats on the fish :appl: :appl: :appl:

    Yeah last summer we landed a Marlin and were going to release it too, but the same problem, after I lifted it in the boat with the 9" flying gaff, it didn't seem to lively, we even tried dragging it backwards tied to a line but to no avail, so we kept it and had it smoked :-(

    I got a question Stan. How many tagged marlin have you actually re-caught or personally know of being re-caught. I hear from many top fisherman here on Oahu that they feel the mortality rate is close to 75% of yes, tagged and released marlin.
