San Diego Blue Marlin
Largest Weighed In Since 1931
September 1, 2015
This is a Pacific Blue Marlin weighed in at the Marlin Club at 662.2 #, 23 Sept 2015. This is a rare catch for this waters, they are generally found in warmer waters, but we have warm 74 to 78 degree water now and they are here because they are chasing their favorite food, which is dorado, and tuna.
It is the largest Pacific Blue marlin weighed in San Diego dating back in The Marlin Club records to 1931.
John Campbell, an IGFA representative, witnessed the weigh in and shot this picture of Matt Santora, boat owner and Angler with captain and gaffer Andy Vo.
The fish was hooked at 8:15 am on 23 Sept, 9 miles west of Point Loma. The tackle was 100# test line and a lure.
