On Ja­nua­ry 1, out of Exmouth, an­gler Clay Hil­bert with game skip­per Ed­dy Law­ler and his crew from Peak Sportfishing Adventures lan­ded a 1089.7 pound (496.3 ki­lo­gram) blue mar­lin. The mons­te­rous fish fought for near­ly 4 hours on a 130lb line. It is the new pen­ding na­tio­nal re­cord for blue mar­lin. The la­test si­mi­lar catch goes back in 1966 when Cairns-ba­sed an­gler George Brans­ford wei­ghed a 1064lb black mar­lin, the first grander ever caught in Aus­tra­lia.
