Beat the previous record by nearly 100#. Currently leading in the money at the Bastante tournament in Rockport.

Just short of a grander. Damn! I mean, I knew everything was bigger in Texas, but not the marlin!

Congrats!

Can't wait for the "why'd they kill it?" crowd to chime in. Nice fish.

Am sure the cameras were rolling.....angler interview said it took 20 min from h/u to boat side and 45 min getting her onboard....HBGC Shootout is in 2weeks, additional 1 million dollar bounty for besting the record....
