144.0" / 238.0 lb. Striped Marlin caught by Nz Fisher fishing on Tuesday May 05, 2009 at 14:45 using a Black Magic Freedom Grand Slam a Swimbait

This is my First Striped Marlin, captured at 'The Compass Rose' just north of North Cape of New Zealand.

It took a Black magic 'Freedom Grand Slammer' (Designed by Alain Jorion) on a Penn International 70VS & 24kg Rod spooled with 24kg mono and took aprox 20 minutes to land.

Boat was 'Pursuit, skippered by Rick Pollock.

NZ is well known for it's large Striped Markin. This one was a nice size, but well short of their best (up to 450lbs).
