Huge Blue Marlin Caught After 28 Hour Fight on 60 lb Test Line

Monster Blue Marlin

I can’t imagine fighting one fish for 28 hours but then again I can’t really imagine hooking and landing a thousand pound Marlin on 60 lb test line.  Richard Biehl is credited with the catch but he wasn’t able to fight it the entire 28 hours.  After food and water was brought from another boat and Biehl took a break they were able to bring the fish in.  Using a girth and length time tested formula they determined the fish weighed 1,213 lbs. It measured “137 inches long, or 11.4 feet, not counting its bill or tail. It was 75 inches, or 6.25 feet around.”  For more on this story Click Here.
