Smile Potential record NZ Blue

Lady angler - Donna Pascoe
37kg line

"While fishing in the Nationals this week, this morning we hooked up onto a sizeable blue marlin 20 miles north of North Cape.
Got it to the boat in 23 minutes and Brad Bennetto called it a very sizeable fish actually referring to it as a slob and it was decided to take it.
Got it onboard, measured 3.4m (11ft) long and we thought 350 to 400kg. Our new crew Phil Evans got the gaff shot.
This is the 2nd 400kg plus fish for Gladiators owner Donna Pascoe and is a pending NZ women's record which is currently 350kg.
As always Houhora were so welcoming to weigh with Warren and Debbie Bunn doing the honours.
None of this fish will go to waste as it is being smoked by Frank at Top Smoke Houhora and after we have taken what we need for family and friends, Phil will be distributing it in the local Moerewa community."

Default Re: Potential record NZ Blue

The latest big fish caught from a trailer boat was mightily impressive too (probably even more so given the vessel it was caught from)! Caught on a locally made lure too... It's odd and I do wonder how it is that NZ now has what... four thousand pound blue marlin while Australia with two coasts that offer great marlin fishing has had just one weighed in.
