Me and a mate have just come back from a week's fishing trip in Fiji.
It took a combined effort and four and a half hours to land this 500lb blue marlin on 50lb gear. We would have liked to have released him, but unfortunately line wrapped around his tail at some point, which resulted in  in him being dragged in backwards and drowning.
He didn't go to waste, he fed half the town

What a catch, great pic and a forever memory.

Shame he drowned, but that's life and he did not die in vein by helping out the locals...    all round...
