Marlin Story

Darren Shields shared this with us:
After several days trying for a marlin by towing teasers, I changed techniques to live baiting. This method worked by catching a skip jack tuna and tethering it to the boat on a 10mt line then drifting and waiting. I shot and lost one over 300lbs then half an hour later shot this fish which was 298lbs. Unfortunately the breakaway on my gun failed and I lost the gun and two Go Pro cameras attached because the gun broke away down deep. I managed after a battle to land the marlin. It towed me for 1.6 nautical miles.
