    Hallo,
    concerning the numbers in your reports, e.g.
    “3-2 released ” – what does it mean ?
    thank you in advance

    Best regards

    Christian,
    Germany

    • Hello Christian – In this case, the 2 represents the number of fish released, the 3 represents the number of bites that the boat has. So, this boat had three bites from marlin, from which 2 of those were successfully fought and released.
