US: lady angler caught an huge 834 pound marlin

The past week during the annual  "Mississippi Gulf Coast Billfish Classic" an huge blue marlin of 834 lb was caught by angler  Deb Hebert

Deb is only  106 pound Deb and whipped the marlin that outweighed her by more than 737 pounds...

Deb, who is an Air Force flight surgeon and a marathon runner, has caught giant yellowfin tuna and released smaller marlin before now. But this is her largest catch yet and it’s the largest marlin ever weighed by a lady angler in the tournament’s 16-year history.

She was fishing on "Iona Louise" about 30 miles south of South Pass, Louisiana, in 2,300 feet of water near the Ewing Bank, when the marlin ate a live five-pound blackfin tuna off the starboard outrigger.

The marlin was caught on I.G.F.A. 80 lb line with a 300-pound leader. The crew had to wire the fish 15 times before they finally boated it.
