    Dat would be a MONSTER! Can someone please tell me (witout getting pissed, or get pissed if you like) what's da point? From my lack of experience, targeting monster marlin is da same thing as shooting an elephant. At least with an elephant you can grind down da tusks and make some afrodesiak powder! Or is dat not okay? A big YFT would make me WAY more stoked! DISCLAIMER: This post was made after a long day of alaalas. ALOHA.:hali_olutta:

    Howzit Jamesjim what alot of people don't realize in Hawaii that these fish are Grinds Bigtime! Also Chances that fish will live to eat another bait is slim! When guys tag and release them it a good piece of mind for them they didn't kill the fish or did they? Though the fish sinks and swims away most times they die either by the bends or heart attack or just eaten by sharks! I fished with a Marine Biologist before who had been studying Marlins for 30+ years He said after they were caught and tagged they were given a tracking beacon and he told me with the really large fish most of them didn't make it! After all how many Granders do you know had a Tag in them??? Think about it!
    After my 2 cents Congratulations to Capt. Jeff and Please share what Lure it was caught on? Aloha!

    when you shoot an elephant it is final. when you hook a marlin or any fish you have the option of releasing it back to live another day. i harvested my 1st. dont see the need to gaff another. just my opinion.

    Thank you for da reply. Is the texture on big marlin (500+ lbs.) when it's smoked still good, compared to smaller ones? I don't know. That's why I'm asking. It's tough (no pun intended) to think about TRYING to catch something that old and huge, that might not be that good to eat, especially if like you said, probably going die if you let um go anyway. If you can smoke a monster and still going be ono and feed the people, then I say GO GET UM!!! While I'm at it, what do you guys think about 100+lb. uluas? Hang um for some cool pics and den what?
