Dorothy Ann Curtice set the women’s 12-pound-test line-class world record for white marlin with this 122-pound fish that she caught on March 30, 1953, while fishing off Bimini in the Bahamas. Curtice, a native of Flint, Michigan, skillfully played the record white marlin for over an hour after the fish ate a ballyhoo she was trolling from Bahama Mama, captained at the time by Eric Sawyer. The record remains unbeaten after six and a half decades.
