Its has been thoroughly indulging chasing bills since I started fishing at 9 years of age. In 2016 I landed my first marlin, a blue weighing in at 288.7lb after a fierce fight of about 55 minutes, hooked on to a skirt on a standard offshore setup tiagra 30 and penn tuna stick. Currently a pak record.
Since 2016 I was able to land a stripe marlin 135lb and a black marlin 145lb aswell being the 2nd angler in Pakistan to have caught all 3 species of marlin found in our waters.
Year 2019 November on a marlin troll again I managed to hook a stripe marlin brute of a fish weighing in at 183lb being my second record in Pakistan. The stripe was to hooked on to a skirt and it lost the battle after about 40 to 50minutes.
Over all Allah has been very kind and has rewarded to all the efforts that I had put in. Thank you
