BILLFISH: Latest news (this barely made it to the report): 722 lbs Blue Marlin caught aboard the 46ft Attitude Adjustment with Captain Edgar Renter?a. Angler Dave Smith, from Atlanta caught anything close was a 55l lb’er twenty five years ago at Walkers Cay, Bahamas. Fifty-eight year old Dave Smith spoke to us from the boat not long after the fish was on board he was awed by the whole event but thrilled " This fish came out of nowhere, it almost spooled us but we recovered line; it was a brute – every time we would get it as close as twenty feet, it would take off at full speed and rip off line".
