Oahu, Hawaii – Capt. Chris Rubin and Ricky Fairbanks on Ruckus weighed a 1,005 lbs. Blue Marlin. The fish ate a Moyes Sumo off their short corner. The fish died in the fight, so they had to plane her up to get her in the boat.
This fish is significant for the Hawaiian Islands as they have not produced a Grander Blue Marlin since their incredible year in 2015.
