GUATEMALA: 30,000 billfish caught by a single boat
The world famous boat "Captain Hook" has just passed a major milestone releasing its 30,00th Billfish (marlin and sailfish).
Few time ago was under the control of top captain Ron Hamlin and now, under the control by Capt. Eddie Bairez, this boat has no doubt seen more billfish than any in the world.
Capt. Eddie gives all the credit to Capt. Ron who handed over the helm with 22,700 billfish under its belt, but adding another 7,300 Billfish is a pretty serious accomplishment in itself.
While the vast majority were Sailfish, Capt. Bairez also released 41 Blue Marlin, 4 Striped Marlin and 3 Black Marlin during his time.
