Striped Marlin

Some people are under the impression that all that is required to make a good fisherman is the ability to tell lies easily and without blushing. But that is a mistake. Mere bald fabrication is useless. It is in the circumstantial detail, the embellishing touches of probability, the general air of scrupulous---almost of pedantic---veracity, that the experienced angler is seen.
Jerome K. Jerome - Fish Library

Striped Marlin

Striped Marlin


Smaller than the blue or black but well worth the fight. World Record 494 lbs. These are big fish!!

Food Value

Good, but usually released alive by sportsmen.

Fishing Method

Drifting; Trolling.

Fighting Characteristics

Outstanding for speed, power and jumping ability. During the initial fighting phases after being hooked and dragged into surface waters, it performs series of leaps, more frequently than other marlin, above the waves. Like all marlin it is a big fighter.
