494.5 MARLIN HIGHLIGHTS 24TH ANNUAL FISHING DERBY

The team on Blu By U hauled in a huge marlin during the 24th Annual Guam-Mariannas International Fishing Derby.

The 24th Annual Guam Marianas International Fishing Derby concluded Sunday evening. The two-day event was highlighted by the team on ‘Blu By U’ who hauled in a 494.5-lb. marlin.

The team had captured a 410-lb. marlin around 9 am Saturday before hauling in the nearly 500-lb. fish later that evening. It took the team and Captain Hoa Nguyen over an hour-and-a-half to bring in the fish, the team’s second largest marlin they’ve ever caught.

“We noticed that there would be a high chance of a big fish in the area what we call ‘the ice box’, which is where we caught the first fish. We had a pretty good idea that this last one was going to be tough to beat,” said Capt. Nguyen.

Teams checked in at the Agana Boat Basin and the Agat Marina. Monday evening will be the official banquet to celebrate the event’s biggest catches.
