Largest Black Marlin Ever Tagged with a Sat-Tag

1300lb Black Marlin photographed by Guy Harvey

This photo was taken by Guy Harvey during an incredible experience with Neil Patrick’s estimated 1,300 pound Black Marlin caught on Zane Grey Reef. Guy swam down and attached a second line to the leader so the majestic fish could be tagged with a satellite tag, and was released unharmed.

The fish traveled nearly 1,200 miles in 60-days and returned to the same area which it was originally caught. An incredible feat by all involved, while becoming the largest Black Marlin ever tagged with a sat-tag.
