Cape Verde Islands – Heiko Steinmetz has struck gold for the 5th time. Fishing on his boat, Black Marlin, he weighed a 1,177 lbs. Blue Marlin. This is now his 5th Grander Blue Marlin and 3rd in as many years. To say this is unprecedented would be an understatement.
Heiko fought the fish for almost two hours. She came up on a Black Bart Grander Candy, but he switched her on a tuna. Fish had a 144″ Short and an 81” Girth.
