First time I have heard that. he swam away fine after we revived him well at the side of the boat, his color came back before we released him.

I'm not the fish police but most people don't realize its actually illegal to take a billfish out of the water then release it.

It is important to follow the regs so we can maintain our fisheries. So if you have an HMS permit, you are allowed to land white and blue marlin, 66" and 99", there is no bag limit as of yet, but recording to NOAA are required. So you can kill these fish if of legal size. It is discouraged to take a billfish out of the water unless you plan to kill it.

Thanks for checking out the video and taking the time to leave a comment.

ya, 25% die for a picture. Doesnít seem like much but if youíre catching 10-12 sails a day thatís a lot (I know that study is about Marlins but sails are about the same).

The only time we ever took one out of the water was because it wrapped itself up in another liner line and we had to bring it in to dehook it. We did revive it and it swam away strong and seemingly healthy..
