Fish Species: Blue Marlin

Records are meant to be broken they say. Well if you're looking for existing BGFA tournament records so you can be the one to annihilate them then here they are. Hope to see you next tournament!

The strikingly beautiful blue marlin is the largest of the Atlantic marlins and one of the biggest fish in the world. Females, which are significantly larger than males, can reach 14 feet (4.3 meters) in length and weigh more than 1,985 pounds (900 kilograms). Average sizes tend to be in the range of 11 feet (3.4 meters) and 200 to 400 pounds (91 to 181 kilograms) .

Angler Frank Armstrong set a record with his catch in 2008 when he reeled in a 507 pound blue marlin.
