Some of you may know that I have been game-fishing for more than 20 years. Besides lots of various catches of different species of different sizes and weights, in 1995 I was also awarded a prize in TKO’95 (The Karachi Offshore’95) Angling Tournament for catching the heaviest King Mackerel (50 lbs).

 

 

During this entire journey, I have caught various species of salt-water fishes from the inshore and off shore waters of the Arabian Sea… and since beginning, I have been dreaming of catching a Marlin or Sailfish.

 

And his dream came true when I created a sort of an unregistered record by catching a huge 111.33 lbs Blue Marlin from the offshore waters of Continental Shelf, Arabian Sea on December 3, 2016.

 

It was a real tough fight but Alhamdulillah, I successfully landed this Blue Marlin. In fact after catching some giant Tunas, while trolling at 10:42 AM, this monster Blue Marlin bit my Zuker blue squirt lure, which was tied with my 80 lbs Daiwa Mono line on the Shimano TLD-50 reel mounted on the Daiwa STP 24Kg heavy trolling Rod.

 

The moment was so thrilling when it got hooked as it immediately jumped off the water and started tail-dancing. Usually, billfish when hooked start jumping and running in order to get unhooked, but luckily with some techniques I learnt from my Guru, I managed to keep the line tight and made her remain hooked until landed.

It was a 15 minutes tough game and after her 2-3 more jumps I landed my dream catch successfully.

 

For the complete video of this fight, check below:

 

 

Along with this Marlin, our teammate, Muhammad Yousuf bhai landed 2 giant Tunas, weighing 48 Kg and 38 Kg each respectively. I also caught a couple of Tunas, which weighed approx 10 and 15 kg respectively. My son Shahzain caught one Tuna of around 5 Kg. Our captain Mr. Adnan Hussain caught 3 Tunas of around 10-15 kg each.

Exact weight of Blue Marlin – 50.4984 Kg / 111.33 Lbs
