Teen Reels In 1,058-Pound Blue Marlin Off Kona Coast






” 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.” “

He is the international world record holder. Many times a year, a person is taken overboard and when clipped to the rod, go straight down behind the fish they caught, never to be seen again.”

US Tourists Swim For 14 Hours After Boat Sinks





”  The fishing trip off the rugged north coast of St. Lucia was supposed to last all day, but about four hours into the journey, the boat’s electric system crackled and popped.

Dan Suski, a 30-year-old business owner and information technology expert from San Francisco, had been wrestling a 200-pound marlin in rough seas with help from his sister, Kate Suski, a 39-year-old architect from Seattle. It was around noon April 21.

He was still trying to reel in the fish when water rushed into the cabin and flooded the engine room, prompting the captain to radio for help as he yelled out their coordinates.

It would be nearly 14 hours and a long, long swim before what was supposed to be a highlight of their sunny vacation would come to an end.”






How Five Skippers Pulled Off Major Tourney Wins





” What does it take to win a fishing tournament? Perhaps a better question is, what doesn’t it take? The dirty little secret about tournament fishing is that winning requires a lot of everything. While intense preparation usually figures as a major component of any successful team, that doesn’t preclude plain dumb luck as accounting for a winner’s check. Similarly, playing it safe on the water is often the key to success — but then again, the risk-taker is sometimes the one who prevails in the end. And that’s the beauty of tournament fishing: You never know what lies in wait.

Here are a few thoughts from some recent winners of big events and their accounts of just how they did it.”

” Capt. Brad Philipps, generally regarded as one of the best billfish captains on the planet, added to his legacy in late December, tallying incredible numbers of billfish releases aboard his 40-foot Gamefisherman,Decisive.

Over a 10-day stretch, Philipps, who operates Guatemalan Billfishing Adventures, released well over 400 sailfish. The action got hot right after Christmas, on Dec. 27, when Philipps found a huge body of fish only 7 to 14 miles offshore and tallied 40 releases from 49 bites.

“But the following day saw one of those unbelievable bites most only dream about,” said Philipps, who has released more than 23,000 billfish over the past 11 years in Guatemala and has won The Billfish Foundation’s Release Captain of the Year Award for 10 years straight.”
