Default Australia Grander Black Marlin

Just wanted to say congrats to Doc Conkle for catching and releasing a grander black marlin in Australia this past week. Took him 17 minutes to get it boat side.Captain asked if hewanted to kill the fish and he said let her go! They comparedpictures to a recently caught 1100 pound black that was killed and he said itkept up with that fish.Caught on a 130 with 45 pounds of drag and ate a scad mackerel. Not many people can say they have even seen a fish that big let alone caught one.... Congrats Doc!
