After catching this sucker, she flew (as the pilot) 8 hours to Hawaii; so the fish didn't come home, it was donated to a local school.

Perfect !!

No offense, really

but no winners here, I see a lose lose situation.

So your wife hooked and landed a magnificent fish, an old age marlin, killed it, left it after a posing for a typical tourist photo, and then gave it away to a local school, even if it was for school lunches, such a waste.

Might as well as cut down an old growth tree and make yourself feel better by planting a new sapling.

What a loss.

Really, sorry and no offense, but even in 3rd world countries like Guam you need to take care of the resources. Otherwise they're just going to go away buh bye.

I'm a scuba diver and love to see things again and again, shoot the picture and then let the critter go.

Kinda like the guys who shoot a trophy elk, mount the head on their wall, and in 10 years later it's in a garage sale for $100. Hard to practice "shoot and release", guess you have to use a barbless bullet.

Tend to agree. Take the picture boatside, and measure length/girth. Have someone make you a fiberglass replica.

The fish lives, and you have a great conversation piece and something to remember that great day.

Darn it I meant to click on the thread "Random Fish Landed Thread" not the "Voice Your Opinions on Hunting and Fishing Thread." I hate when that happens!

We released this 3 foot Tiger Muskie. Tigers are a Northern/Muskie hybrid we have in these parts. Some of them get pretty big. I had one I simply could not get in the boat because the net was too small.:( Oh well, I would have released him anyway.

I would tend to agree, but I wonder what the chance of a fish like that living after a 2 hr fight. I have no idea, just curious.

Thats not me But a very good friend. and yes it's bear spray. But alcohol is often involved. Alaska peninsula heres a couple more. Lots of Bears they are larger and less aggressive than the ones here in MT, they have more food options.

Dude, you're living the life!! I just got back last weekend from AK ( water was a bit too high for the Kings).. Spent alot of time down the peninsula, and IMHO, all bear spray does is piss em off and give your white tender flesh a little seasoning!! Besides ,, our gov. put the bureau of AFT together cause the belong together!!! LOL

Interseting story on that one...Walkin along the bank of the little stream and look down and see that spinner picked it up and since i was about to call it a day i decided to try the spinner...First cast out that little baby hit it...Firts brown trout I've caught out of the northern NM streams.

Same stream just a differnt trip.

Spinner looks like a Panther Martin...very effective on trout here...

Here is my wife with a sail fish she caught in Mexico a few years back. Measured 9'10" long and weighed in at 110lbs. ( fish weighs more than she does!) The other one at her feet is a 120lbs, and is 9'20".
