Kona, Hawaii – After waiting almost three months for our first Grander of 2014, it was only a matter of days for our 2nd. Capt. Dave Unger and Kai Hoover on Nasty Habit, weighed a 1,211 lbs. Blue Marlin. This is the largest Blue Marlin weighed in Kona since Integrity’s 1,252 back in 2008. Fish had a 137” Short, 78” Girth and a 22.5” Tail measurement.
The fish ate a light blue tube lure off the long corner in 700 fathoms off Casa de Emdeko. Fish ate on a morning tide change and the water temp was 79 F. That tail hanging out of his mouth is a 30 lbs. Yellowfin Tuna.
