While You Were Eating Hot Dogs And Chugging Beer These Bros Were Reeling In This 1,254-Pound Blue Marlin
On Friday the Big Oh Sportfishing team from the Cape Verdes Islands reeled in what is the 4th documented ‘grander’ (fish weighing over 1,000 pounds) of the year after they brought this 1,254-pound blue marlin to the scales. Upon reaching the scales and seeing this blue marlin tip the scales at 1,254-pounds the captain and anglers realized they’d just caught the 9TH LARGEST ATLANTIC BLUE MARLIN IN ALL OF RECORDED HISTORY.
This 1,254 pound blue marlin was caught by Big Oh Sportfishing after they teased this gargantuan blue marlin up to the service using a Black Bart Breakfast, before swapping the lure with a bonito (member of the tuna family). The 1,254-pound marlin then feverishly ate the bonita bait and the fishing team from Big Oh settled in for a marathon FIVE HOUR BATTLE against the fish, before getting it into the boat and off to the scales.
