My first Marlin!


Recommended Posts

Awesome catch! Probably getting a bit late in the season for kings at this stage. The more known spots might still be holding a few though. 

If you strike out on the kings, stick on a metal lure for some tailor. There's plenty of decent size ones around and they are a fun by-catch.

200kg for a first up Marlin is a great start, now to bag one on the Ski, like this crazy Kiwi


I've tried a couple of times off the ski at spots like the Banks off Jervis Bay but no luck! That would be an interesting battle solo. I didn't realise how important the driver is during the battle. They do the most work!

Great work guy! The sound of that screaming reel is what all makes us come back for more! Nice work! :) 

Where were you fishing out from? Sydney or the beautiful Port Stephens? 

cheers scratchie!!! 

Just off Sydney about 120 fathoms
