The secret to landing marlin is the hook collection. So when the Marlin pops up check the amount of the dorsal fin and should you observe a taller fin then that’s definitely a fairly Stripey. So, next time he shows itself in the duration of your fishing trip you can be sure to spot the right one without confusion. Tired marlin needs to be swum alongside the boat until they’ve recovered. Striped marlin are an extremely migratory species. The bigger marlin over 300lbs are caught more frequently in the summertime.
