Blue Marlin

I never lost a little fish - Yes, I'm free to say. It always was the biggest fish I caught, that got away. .
Eugene Field
All good fishermen stay young until they die, for fishing is the only dream of youth that does not grow stale with age.

Blue Marlin

Blue Marlin


Usually under 400-500 lbs, although this species can grow to over 16 feet in length and nearly 2,000 lbs. Females are generally much larger than males. World record is 1376 lbs.

Food Value

Excellent, but usually released alive by sportsmen.

Fishing Method

Sometimes Drifting; Trolling using whole natural baits or artificial lures.

Fighting Characteristics

Pure speed seems to be one of the major differences that separates the Blue Marlin from the Black. A very strong and exceptionally fast fish which can test not only the angler and tackle but the entire crew. Large Blues will often spool large reels in a very short amount of time. They will very often make a power dive down 400 or 500 yards and stay there. The capture of a large Blue is definitely a team effort.
