Catching a 1000-pound game fish is a great challenge, but not being able to find a scale large enough to weigh it has to be a disappointment. That was the case recently at Cabo San Lucas, the famed fishing port at the end of Baja California, Mexico.
There was no question about an IGFA world record as not only did two anglers in a charter party fight the great fish, but they did so on two rods as the marlin hit two baits. The 1000-pound estimate was based on comparison to marlin that weighed somewhat less.
The NY/NJ Bight forecast is for northeast winds at 5-10 knots with likely rain or snow showers in the morning changing to rain in the afternoon.
