Blue Marlin Jumping

Incredible blue marlin jumping out of the water.

Blue marlin is one of the most incredible species of fish to fish for in salt water.


They are widely admired by fisherman due to there powerful characteristics of jumping out of the water and putting up a big fight. Blue marlin can reach speeds up to 62 miles per hour. I know one thing, you better have a reel that can take out the drag that fast, wow! The average size of a blue marlin is 200-400 pounds and 11 feet long, but they can they can easily weigh over 1000 pounds. The largest blue marlin caught was back in 1970, it weighed in at 1,805 pounds, the huge fish was caught by a party of anglers fishing in the Oahu Hawaii area.

Thanks guys!

I’m working on my species of saltwater fish! As you probably know from reading my other fishing posts, I’m a freshwater fisherman.

I’ve probably gone on 1,000 fishing expeditions, yet I still haven’t tried saltwater fishing yet. But hey, I’m still young and in my 20s, have plenty of time to get out and do some marlin fishing!
