Salinas, Ecuador – Captain Fouad Sultan on Saruka caught a 1,074 lbs. Black Marlin. Capt. Sultan put first time marlin angler Dennis Chalas of Boca Raton, Florida on this big girl after and hour and a half fight. The fish apparently came up dead after the fight.
They were fishing for Wahoo using a downrigger with a horse ballyhoo and an Ilander, when this big Black Marlin appeared.
Congratulations to everyone on Saruka for this impressive catch. We would like to thank Luis Gomez of Blue Marlin Manta for all the information.
