Exclamation Name That Marlin

By now, you've all heard about the amazing run of warm water we're having in SoCal this season, and the incredible fish that are coming to our area as a result. We've already had 5-way opah hookups and a handful of wahoo; now we're hearing about marlin that are turning out to be believed to be blues.

Today, we received the first pics here at the Home Office of one of those released "blues". My question to you all, as our Experts - is it a small blue, a large stripe or can you not tell?

You cannot be a sportsman and not care about the fish. You can be a fisherman, but not a sportsman, and no self-respecting angler should settle for being just a fisherman.

Large stripe - look at the dorsal fin. Extends to more than half the depth of the body.
