In 1977 I gut hooked a 6' juvenile black marlin on the 9 mile at Tweed Heads, blood was pouring from the gills so we brought it on board, for weighing and eating as it had no chance of survival.

Got 2 fillets approx 1.5m x 35cms pink strong tasting flesh, you would not put it in the top bracket for taste, and only keep when the fish was doomed to die anyway; the fish was heavily affected by the deep hooking and only cleared the water twice on 6kgs gear
