World Record of Most Marlin Releases in One Season

The private sport-fisher Carol Libby, breaks record with 430 releases and still counting.

Aboard the boat Carol Libby, a 60-foot Hybrid Spencer and American Custom Yacht, Capt. Josh Temple and his team broke the previous world record of most marlin released in one season. 

"We released 10 for 13 on June 25, 12 for 21 on June 26 and seven for 10 on June 27.  We officially broke the record on June 26, when we eclipsed 422 releases (the previous record)," said Temple.

That record was set by Capt. Bobby McGuinness on the Cazador out of Golfito in 2010.

The team aboard Carol Libby has been fishing for 61 days, from February to June of this year. The team's largest fish to date was a 475-pounder. They have raised 754 with 614 bites and TBF-tagged 310. 

The team still has nearly half a year left in the season — keep it up.
