Blue Marlin Weighing 1005.9 lbs Caught in Tobago Fishing Tournament

Angler Brendan Bernard yesterday caught a Blue Marlin weighing 1005.9 lbs, the largest Blue Marlin catch on record in a locally-based game fishing tournament. 

The previous record was 890 pounder caught five years ago.

Bernard was a member of the team aboard ‘Predator’ participating in the Tobago International Game Fishing Tournament which took place between May 9 and 12.

For landing Blue Marlin weighing more than 1,000 lbs, Bernard and four fellow anglers have won a Mercedes Benz. The boat was captained by Brendan Farfan and included anglers Peter Reid, Simon Bernard and Michael Rostant.

The tournament began in 1995 at Pigeon Point, Tobago. 

Now relocated to the north end of Tobago in Charlotteville, the Tobago International Game Fishing Tournament pulls in anglers from from the Caribbean to North and South America, and Europe. 

This year 18 teams participated in the international division and 41 teams in the local division.

  1. May I simply say what a comfort to find someone who genuinely understands what they're talking about online.
    You actually understand how to bring an issue to
    light and make it important. More and more people need to check this out
    and understand this side of the story. It's surprising you are not more popular since
    you certainly have the gift.
