Not something you see every day…a beached marlin!

Justin Roper with Makaira Fishing Lures shares a report of a beached marlin in Lousiana – a stark reminder to what might be the aftereffects of the spill from last year.  Fish apparently weighed about 150 pounds, no trauma, apparently recently dead.
