Actually I didn't htink about it at the time to excited, but they asked me several times if i wanted to keep it. As tempted as I was bc it was my first marlin, I decided to release it to let it grow for another day. Had it been 4-500 lbs, then it would be at the taxidermist.

The boat was "Hooked Up". Great crew, good captian. You can arrange to have your fish prepared for you etc. Boat was nice 40' with twin detroits in it. Boat make was great. No complaints. As they said they are either heros or zeros. They were heros that day.

Outstanding fish! Don't forget that the taxidermist won't use or need any of your fish, especially a fish of that size. He will take pics. and measurements for the mount but dispose of the fish anyway. If you have to kill the fish, at least eat it.
