We were very saddened to hear that one of the legends in our sport has passed away. Probably most known in recent years for chasing big blue marlin line records in Madeira, Stewart was always looking for the next fishery. His boat Chunda with Capt. Bark Garnsey were always chasing records.
Here are some of the highlights of his career in fishing.
- First Angler to catch Two Grander Blue Marlin – 1,141-pounder and 1,038-pounder in Madeira
- IGFA Hall of Fame
- IGFA Trustee
- 6 lb Atlantic Blue Marlin record at 336 lbs
- 8 lb Atlantic Blue Marlin Record at 562 lbs
- 16 lb Atlantic Blue Marlin record at 820 lbs
- 20 lb record at 714 lbs
- 30 lb record at 872 lbs.
Our thoughts and prayers are with hid family and friends.
