That's a good'n for sure. Mate got one off Mitimiti Summer before last. And not far off it either. It's a bit sketchy in a kayak but one of these days someone is going to do it.

Thats amazing Job from a kayak… good on him…. All 4 of us never had a Marlin before. It was the first hook for us and landed it after few hours… Might catch again in the coming seasons but we wont forget that day….🐋🐟🎣🐬🐬😀

He was in a boat. Lives up that way. What I meant was one day someone in a kayak is going to get a West Coast marlin. A few people have done it from the East Coast, but out West is a dangerous place for a little kayak, especially as we can only slow troll livebaits and there are some big sharks out there. Really BIG sharks. First is getting a calm enough weather/swell and tide window for a kayak and that's not easy to find, next is avoiding sharks, then having the fitness to fight the marlin and then paddle back across the bar before the swell picks back up or the tide turns or sea breeze kicks in, etc, etc. Luck, fitness, skill and big gonads are needed.

Well done for finding it, then landing your first strike. Trolling lures? What was your line and leader set-up? Good luck on the next hunt.

5 lure spread…. Marlin took the Mrs Palmer lumo… We had only one good set up and luckly the fish was in that lure…. It was a Tiagra 50W with 37 kg mono and braid combination… The wind on 400 lbs It was on the Short side outrigger….

Nice video 👍 And Mr BoomBaangh is on the team as well, haha. Great stuff. He's also been showing up a bit in the videos of our friends at "the wild table" channel.

Thanks for posting that YT video. What a classic adventure for the boys. In years to come you'll laugh at all the mistakes made as you learn, but the bottom line is you got out there, had a go and it paid off. Well done to everyone involved. Great effort.
