Whoever says that fishing is boring should give marlin fishing a try. These majestic creatures can be found all over the world in warm waters. The Caribbean, Hawaii, and Mexico as well as many south American shorelines offer fantastic marlin fishing with fish that are often more then five hundred pounds.
I came across an article on firstcoastnews.com while reading up on marlin fishing and I found the wording a little strange. There is a lot of emphasis on the word “attack” but I’m sure this sort of thing has happened before, if not with marlin then with another species of fish that jumps a lot. Although it is impossible to determine whether this marlin really wanted to attack a fisherman or it was just a freak accident, science dictates that if you are pulling something towards you, it’s going to come to you. This marlin just came in a little easier and faster then anyone expected. Then again, Jon is the scientist, not me.
