While your billfishing education is our main concern at Marlin University, like most schools, there’s plenty of time to relax and blow off a little steam after a long day of learning. Photo by Robert Bates Photo by Robert Bates
There are two types of destinations that Marlin U visits: big-fish spots, known for size but not numbers, and great-bite spots, known for the good numbers of bites you can get in a day. Photo by Robert Bates

The primary focus of every Marlin University session is getting as many bites as possible, so we can teach our students how to operate a lever-drag reel with confidence. Photo by Robert Bates
