As it happens we hooked this small acrobatic high flying Black Marlin at sunrise that Duncan released after 20 minutes. Notice the unusual big pectoral fins and tail on this fish…a sign that it will grow very big???The wind come early and we had a hell of a rough trip to get back to the resort, but after such a successful start to the charter I heard no one complaining.Over the next 7 days we ended up having a ball and releasing another 5 Black Marlin two of which really big mama’s, estimated at 850 lbs.
