    the guy mentioned they wanted to show how to release a marlin.... well, they have an example of how NOT to do it... funny how the great white just shot up and attacked the marlin... that guy is so lucky... to be alive...

    So, I guess that one was a keeper instead? I read somewhere that Mako's are the main predator of large billfish (swords and marlin), and they attach the tail first to immobilize them. You can see how that Mako bit the tail right off - after that the billfish ain't goin nowhere.

    Yeah, and who knows how many released marlin tired after the fight and many times injured to some degree, end up w/ their tail bit off. Tag and release is way over rated as a conservation method. If you want to make a difference donate some $ to lobbyists trying to control the out of control long line industry.

    Tight lines,
