Default One angler per fish?

In a marlin tournament, are they allowed to switch anglers during the fight or does that disqualify the fish? I assume for record sake that would disqualify the fish but was wondering about tournaments. I cannot imagine fighting a fish for multiple hours.

You cannot pass off the rod to another angler. Once you've started the fight, you gotta finish it. Passing the rod off will result in a disqualification.

So I guess that is why I never get invited to such competitive blue water festivities.

Thanks for the info. That is what I told my wife, while we were watching the weigh in on TV Saturday night, but then I was not positive about it for tournament reasons. I have another question. Do the center console guys use stand up gear or do they use bent butt rods in rod holders like they do on Wicked Tuna? The winner Saturday said they fought the fish for about five hours, I cannot imagine the beating that angler took without a fighting chair. I know these are newbie questions but I have never fished blue water. Fun to see the fish come in though.

IGFA rules gives two options: any one can pick up the rod set the hook and then fight the fish or pick up the rod, set the hook and pass the rod to another team member, but the rod can only be passed that one time and the angler must fight the fish unassisted.

Well Jason, we've had complications in the past now haven't we??!! Lol! Plus, we generally like to use freespool without a Marlin on the line

You cannot fight a fish from the rod holder. It must be fought either in a chair or using stand up gear.

Hey...it was a combination of the heat, buff, a fat chaw and way too many beers in a two hour ride. I wasnt expecting to be hooked up to a marlin in the first 15 minutes of fishing! Sheesh!
