Marlin - - EDITOR'S LETTER - Capt. Nel­son Ap­ple­gate Via email

I re­ally en­joyed the ar­ti­cle Mar­lin Cen­tral [April/May 2017] and photos. I am no stranger to the Bri­tish vir­gin Is­lands, but it has been many a moon since I have been there. As you can see by the data I passed on with my let­ter, we were the win­ners of the first blue mar­lin tour­na­ment held there. The blue in the photo broke the stan­chion when they were hoist­ing it up to the scale to weigh. It was caught on 50-pound-test line, and if we could have weighed it on an of­fi­cial scale, I am sure it would have been a world record.
