September 500+ Club Round-Up

Nice Blue Marlin released by Xacara

It was a busy month for Big Fish in September. We saw the Azores continue to produce incredible numbers of 500+ Blue Marlin, while watching the Great Barrier Reef heat up on the Black Marlin. We had 9 Black Marlin over 500 lbs in early season action off Cairns, Australia (wait until Oct. & Nov.), but the Azores dominated again with 23 Blue Marlin released over 500. Of those, 12 Blue Marlin were released by Brasilia, making it the Top Boat for big blue marlin in the World for September 2011. 2nd Place went to Xacara, also fishing the Azores, with 6 Blue Marlin released over 500 lbs.

When it is all said and done, 2011 will have to go down as one of the finest fishing seasons the Azores have seen.

Looking forward to all your 500 lbs Marlin & Swords in October.
