First Marlin for the Durban Season on Fat Girl
Marlin Report –  8 January 2020
With water temps sitting 28.4 deg.C and a 25 knot North Easterly wind made for very tough and difficult fishing conditions in choppy seas, at the end of the trip on the way home with only 1 Dorado in the hatch a small Black Marlin took the inside rigger. Sadly on a jump near the boat he got tail wrapped. We tried to revive him for some time as he was dragged backwards for a very short time and we released the fish even though the chance of surviving is lower than normal, the fish still stands a chance. Well done Reino on your first Marlin ever.
