In Cape Verde islands, in the middle of Atlantic Ocean angler Alexander Trukhachev caught an impressive huge female blue marlin of 1.222 lb - 553 kg.

He was fishing on board 33' Bertram Happy Hooker I with Capt. Simon Bracey trolling a Bonze Mongrel Dog lure on a 130 lb tackle.

The fight time was more than 3 hours.

Unfortunately the fish died and so was boated and weighted on the shore.
