We had a good look at one two years ago. The marlin was in the spread for about 45 seconds, and everyone saw the fish. It almost swam up the exhaust pipe, but we didn’t have a pitch bait ready. From the tips of its pectoral fins, the fish was over 6 feet across, and the blue stripes looked to be about 8 inches wide. We had a big lure on the left side, and the fish charged in on that one, put the brakes on, switched to the rigger, then came back in but never bit. I’d like to see that one again one day.
