Huge marlin will lure international game sh anglers to Zululand
Marius Botha had the strike of his life on board the boat ‘Rough Rider’ and brought the whopping 1 068lb (484.5kg) giant of the sea to the weighing scales at the Richards Bay Ski Boat Club
Few years ago the rhino also hanged from a hook for bragging rights.
So sad that such joy is taken from destroying such a beauty of the sea.
Isn’t it wonderful - more tourists in our community - which is great for business - which means more money - which means more job creations

The average age of a male marlin is about 18 years and a female is about 25 years of age. So I would say its about 15 years old if its a male and about 20 - 22 years old if a female.
Why are these sh not tagged and released? Asking a legit question, I’m interested to know.

So it is OK to support the stuff that comes in a box at the local chain store, that is shed by the thousands on boats that rape our seas, but one large sh off a rod is shameful? I think priorities may be lacking and sitting behind a PC/ phone has prevailed.
