511 LB. MARLIN WINS MARIANAS FISHING DERBY

Roque Chaco and ‘Debbie I’ reeled in the largest marlin in the Marianas International Fishing Derby

‘Debbie I’ reeled in the biggest marlin (511 lbs) in the 22nd Marianas International Fishing Derby over the weekend.

Debbie I also caught the biggest marlin in the Saipan derby earlier this year. Captain Roque Chaco was along with anglers Anthony Chaco, Randal Chaco, Ray Chaco, Romy Magan, & Aris Abiera.

“It wasn’t a fight, it was a battle,” said captain Roque Chaco. “The reel broke so we handlined the marlin for over 30 minutes until we tied the main line to another reel and started cranking him in. It took over two hours before we got him to the side of the boat and secured him.”

The marlin bit the hook around 6:20 am Sunday about a mile by Facpi 2 buoy.
