” It was certainly the catch of the day for a New York City teenager when he “caught the fish of a lifetime,” a 1,058-pound blue marlin, off the Kona coast on Wednesday.
” I would imagine that there’s not very many more things as exhilarating than catching a ‘grander’ in Kona,” said 16-year-old Kai Rizzuto.”
” The gargantuan marlin measured 11 feet from its jaw to tail and took Kai 30 minutes to reel in. “It was a 30-minute fight. I’ll tell you it was the hardest 30 minutes I’ve ever fought a fish,” said Rizzuto. “When I saw that fish at the end of line I was just thinking, don’t break off. Do not break off.” “
” In May 2003, Candace Meyer landed this massive yellowfin tuna off the coast of Ada Foah, Ghana. The 314-pounder is the largest yellowfin catch ever by a female angler, according to IGFA records. Meyer caught the fish on 130-pound tackle and landed the fish in 45 minutes. Will two decades pass before this record is surpassed? “

” HydraSports Custom is unveiling 53’ Sueños, the world’s largest, outboard powered, center console at the Miami International Boat Show in February 2015.”
” The most common question has been, “Why such a large boat?” The answer is simple according to Elias De La Torre III, CEO of HydraSports Custom boats, “We’ve sold 140 of the 42’ center consoles and our boat owners have requested a larger boat to move into.” After extensive market research and input from current HydraSports boat owners it seemed the market was finally ready. “
” As with all HydraSports Custom boats, 53’ Sueños, will have very limited production. The plan is to build no more than 12 of these boats per year for world-wide distribution via a network of factory direct test centers.”
” This boat features Advanced Combat Craft Construction leveraging two million dollars of US Navy funded research for their Advanced Combatant Craft. Developed by Structural Composites this technology has won numerous awards including three Congressional Medals of Merit.”
The specs are just as impressive as the photos …

” A frightening-looking and rarely-sighted frilled shark has been caught by fishermen off south-eastern Victoria.
The pre-historic creature has over 300 needle-like teeth in 25 rows, with a head and fins similar to an eel along with a long shark-like tail.
The frilled shark, which is believed to have existed for 80 million years and could be responsible for some ancient sea monster myths, is well known to the scientific community but rarely seen.
A trawler working in the waters near Lakes Entrance in Victoria’s Gippsland region pulled the shark from 700m deep even though the creature normally lives at a depth of about 1500m. “

” Guy Harvey is many things, nearly all of them related to the ocean and his love and appreciation of that environment. Dr. Harvey is best known internationally as a prolific and talented painter of marine animals, his interest in marine biology (in which he holds a PhD) and his countless hours of underwater observation leading to an obsession with accurate detail. By 1988, Harvey was widely recognized as a top game-fish artist in the world.
Harvey is also one of the staunchest advocates of marine conservation on the planet. In 1999, the artist/diver/cinematographer/explorer collaborated with Nova Southeastern University in Dania Beach, Florida, to establish the Guy Harvey Research Institute, one of only a handful of private organizations dedicated exclusively to the science-based conservation of marine fish populations and biodiversity.
You can read more about Harvey here.
Sport Fishing is honored to share with our audience this exclusive gallery, not merely of 50 Guy Harvey paintings, but the 50 favorites picked by the artist, with a comment from him on each. It’s also worth mentioning that a portion of all Harvey’s art sales go to the Guy Harvey Ocean Foundation. Reproductions are available for most images here or call 954-581-0073. “

This ROV from Deep Trekker would make a great gift to the mariner on your list but beware of the $4000 price tag … and this is the starter model . The flagship model , DTG2 Turbo Worker , lists for $10,000 .
DTG2 from Deep Trekker
” The DTG2 from Deep Trekker comes complete with a standard 50 meters of tether that connects you to the Superbright LCD Screen Controller and offers the first completely portable, remotely operated vehicle (ROV). Built to last, the DTG2 is constructed of a cast-aluminum body that encases a 360-degree window and allows the user to have an unprecedented field of view, whether checking out the bottom of the boat or exploring the ocean floor. Typical battery life ranges from six to eight hours. “
Watch this video of the DTG2 and see just how cool it is …
As cool as an underwater ROV might be we personally can see ourselves having much more fun from a gift of the V2 , state of the art , waterproof , floating drone from SeaHex which is a steal at $8,000 … (sarc off)
” The SeaHex V2 changes the stakes for the ever-growing market of quadcopter drones. The big brother of the V1, which allows for safe water recovery, the V2 provides the impressive ability for both water landings and takeoffs. When coupled with the offshore fishing package, the SeaHex V2 lets you create a program to search a half-mile grid in front of you while sending a live feed back to an iPad or a smartphone onboard. That’s a huge advantage when looking for baitballs or a feeding frenzy.”
And here is a video of the SeaHex V2 in action …
While we have highlighted a couple of the most expensive items on the list , do not be deterred . There is something for all budgets among the great gift ideas for the fisherman/boater you love at Marlin Magazine

” Deep-sea anglerfish are strange and elusive creatures that are very rarely observed in their natural habitat. Fewer than half a dozen have ever been captured on film or video by deep diving research vehicles. This little angler, about 9 cm long, is named Melanocetus. It is also known as the Black Seadevil and it lives in the deep dark waters of the Monterey Canyon. MBARI’s ROV Doc Ricketts observed this anglerfish for the first time at 600 m on a midwater research expedition in November 2014. We believe that this is the first video footage ever made of this species alive and at depth.

” Sometimes the fish have the last laugh.”
” 3 — They don’t call bluefish “snappers” for no reason. In South Africa, where this video was taken, they call ‘em shad. Check out a bluefish determined to make this angler sing contralto. (You’ll have to turn your head 90 degrees to watch this one.) “
” A group of fishermen here caught last week a huge tiger shark in the waters between Bohol and Camiguin islands, and found inside the shark’s belly a human head and a leg, still with half-digested flesh.
“ It was so disgusting. We can’t bear the awful smell,” said Bodoy Gorgod, 48, one of the five fishermen from Punta Bilar here who caught the shark between the waters of Bohol and Camiguin islands Wednesday last week.
Gorgod, 48, said he had never caught a shark before with human parts inside since he started fishing at age 20.
The fisherman said the shark was so huge it might have weighed 300 kilos.
Even though they know the catch would fetch them a good price, usually at 70 pesos a kilo when sold to fishball makers in Cebu, Gorgod said they ditched the shark, except the head and the fins, when they were still in the deep sea.
“ We feared that the human remains may bring bad luck to us, so we opted to drop to the sea the shark’s body and what’s inside its belly,” he said. “
” A recently filmed video captured a shark feeding frenzy along the North Carolina Outer Banks.
According to Brian Recker’s YouTube post, the video was filmed at Cape Lookout National Seashore and shows more than 100 sharks attacking a school of blue fish.
“For more than five minutes, the sharks were observed swimming in and out of the surf, some of which became beached in the fury,” Recker wrote. “
” There have been countless milestones in the 50 plus year history of the Viking Yacht Company, and among them is the launch of the new flagship, our 92 Enclosed Bridge Convertible.

Meet Christina …
” Christina tapped the plentiful offshore waters of Marathon, Florida Keys, to haul in this dolphin. Even though Key Largo, Islamorada, Marathon and Key West tend to be the most popular fishing destinations, don’t forget about the “Forgotten Keys“ in the lower Keys, including Big Pine Key. These less-pressured keys offer exceptional fishing both inshore and offshore. “
And this here is Catherine …
” Catherine, a University of Georgia gymnast, went fishing in Key West and landed this permit. Key West Harbor is one of the most dependable spots to catch permit, especially during the spring. This fishery is a great option for those who lack the time or patience to pursue these fish on the flats. “

” This is the age of the super-sized center console. Based on big, beamy hulls and boasting plenty of power – usually in the form of multiple V-6 or V-8 outboards – these offshore fishing machines are suitable for a wide range of angling pursuits – from sailfish to swordfish, kingfish to cobia, tuna to tarpon and more.
What defines a big center-console fishing boat? We think 30-something-plus feet LOA (length overall) serves as the benchmark, though today you’ll certainly find multiple boats over 40 feet in this genre. And there are some spectacular models – not just because of their size, but also because of their great designs, features and style.
We’ve scoured the market to find today’s top models, great center-console boats that have earned the respect of serious offshore anglers. So if you are looking for a new blue-water boat, start your search here with 25 Great Center-Console Boats Over 30 Feet. (Listed alphabetically by manufacturer.)
” The EdgeWater 318CC continues to be a favorite among saltwater anglers. This center-console boat’s 10-foot, 2-inch beam offers plenty of fishing space for you and your crew without feeling crowded. The unsinkable design of EdgeWater’s SPI (Single Piece Infusion) all-composite construction enables a safer, stronger and well-performing hull.
The outboard-powered 318CC features a 28-gallon livewell and two fish lockers – one forward and one aft that can double as a livewell. It also offers tackle storage in the leaning post and rod holders aplenty. Rated for 700 hp and boasting 300-gallon fuel capacity, the 318CC has the power and range to fish far offshore and return you safely.”

Viking 92 Convertible
” The largest Viking to date in its 50-year history is its new 92 Convertible.
It launches late summer 2014. The first boat will be an enclosed-bridge model, and this will be followed by open-bridge versions. The project was handled by Viking from design, the building of the molds in-house with the aid of a pair of five-axis profiling milling machines and all of the construction aspects.
The 23-foot beam not only opens the salon, but transforms into a living room with built-in furniture and appointments like a 60-inch flat screen television that rises on a lift out of the teak cabinetry. An L-shape island in the galley complements the work area and all countertops feature custom-selected granite. A pair of walk-in pantries and a full day head are forward and characterize an excellent use of space. Nearby, a formal dining area accommodates eight guests.”
Length Overall (LOA): 93′ 4″ (28.45 m) Beam: 23′ 5″ (7.03 m) Draft: 5′ 10″ (1.77 m) Gross Weight*: 195,000 lbs. (88,450 kg) Fuel Capacity: 4,000 gals. (15,141 l) Water Capacity: 450 gals. (1,703 l)
” The 92 Convertible has six staterooms, each with its own private head and shower. The full-beam master suite features a king-size walk-around bed, a walk-in closet, a dressing table, and his-and-her private facilities. Crew quarters are aft with access from the cockpit. The full-beam area includes a head with a shower, a small galley area, and upper and lower berths in a private cabin.
Propulsion choices include offerings by Caterpillar and MTU. The communication, navigation and entertainment electronics package will be designed and installed by Viking’s sister company, Atlantic Marine Electronics. The first open-bridge boat will have a tuna tower designed and fabricated by Palm Beach Towers, another Viking subsidiary.
If Viking is not your cup of tea , how about a Hatteras ?
” Hatteras’ largest sport-fishing boat is the 90C. The boat was built in 1995, with the first boat delivered in 1996. This was a series of convertibles Hatteras produced at the time, the first one was in 1992, which was an 82C.
There were a total of 23 boats from the series built and sold from 1992-1998. At the time, it had largest diesel engines on a sport-fishing boat — the Deutz 16v-620 engine with 2,900 break hp.
Another unique feature of the 90C is that Hatteras built a bridge upon a bridge, meaning a flybridge on top of an enclosed bridge. There was only one like this built in its fleet.
The biggest challenge with the build process was the draft of the boat due to the large horsepower. Hatteras Engineering and Michigan Wheel designed a hybrid propeller specific for this model.
Of course the comparison above is not quite fair as the Viking 92′ is a current production boat while Hatteras , at present , “only” makes sportfish up to 77′ in length … see below .

” Yellowfin tuna are normally a deep-water, roaming fish found far offshore. The last time Alex Hare, a 22-year-old angler from Destin, Florida, caught a yellowfin tuna it was on rod and reel in the Gulf of Mexico near oil rigs — in 6,000 feet of water. His most recent yellowfin catch happened Sunday, August 3, when he free-gaffed an estimated 100-pound yellowfin tuna in the 8-foot deep boat basin of a Florida Keys resort.
Hare, who was staying with friends at Angler’s Reef, located near mile marker 84.5, spotted the fish swimming in the resort’s small harbor for about 20 minutes.
” At first, we saw a wake, and thought it was a tarpon,” Hare says. “We couldn’t believe that it was a yellowfin.”
