Totally ignorant on this, but a marlin without a bill, not still a marlin?

If they are following IGFA rules, then it would be disqualified.

The MGCBC is a sport fishing tournament where participants agree to fish in the spirit of IGFA rules. While the tournament does not strictly enforce the use of IGFA rules, it certainly expects that only minor technical differences will be employed by anglers. One noted exception is the allowance that the rod may be handed off one time within the first minute of the fight. The full page of State Saltwater Fishing Record Rules can be found at the bottom of this document, Exhibits A and B, and at http://www.dmr.ms.gov/index.php/mari...g-record-rules

Well, there ya go.

Its not an IGFA tournament and the above states fish within the "spirit" of the rules. As I understand it the crew did not break the bill off, anyone who complains is just a sore looser. I realize everyone who entered had money on the line, but welcome to life.

I'd like to see a picture of said "Bill-less Marlin" That had to hurt, do they have feeling in their bills?

Probably didn't hurt as bad as the cold steel of a flier...

There's no video of the boating of the fish. If it was hit by the prop BEFORE it was gaffed it aided in the boating of the fish. Lots of fish are lost while trying to gaff them.
