Bermuda – 8th Grander of the Year

Grander on the Leader - From Fa La Me

Grander on the Leader – From Fa La Me

Bermuda – There have been some big ones around, so it was only a matter of time. Alan and Ian Card on the Challenger put first time angler Enzo Diana on a fish of a lifetime, releasing a 1,000+ lbs. Blue Marlin. This was a well photographed fish, from underwater to above water and even some fellow fishermen on the Fa La Me of the release.

The fish hit a Makaira Pulling Lures 19 off the Left Long. It took one hour and ten minutes to get her boatside. This is the 5th GRANDER for the Card Duo!

  1. Well done! Very fat fish! Definitely a Grander! I know how tempting it must have been to stick the iron in this girl! Only more respect from your peers I hope for not! Hopefully she regained her health and continues to spawn. Congrats to the whole team! Aloha!

    Outstanding work! Congrats Capt. and crew for putting this angler on the fish of a lifetime and kudos to the angler as well!

    Great job of documenting the event by both Challenger and Fa La Me crews, too. Just a great all around effort that has allowed some of us to live the dream vicariously.
