Marlin on a Surf setup

Hello guys, 

 

Just wanted to share with you all. We went offshore for Marlins and we where missing a rod for the shotgun (The long line spread) so I used a 9ft st. surf legend and a ZB22. I thought it was going to catch only small fish. Marlin hit the line and reel started screaming like crazy, at the end of the line a 300lbs estimated Blue Marlin of from Salvadorian waters. The fight was thought since it was 40lb braid and a small line capacity compared with those big trolling reels.

I think Ksong is planning a trip to troll for marlin with a prototype Black Hole ice fishing rod.

In fact, a marlin was landed on ultra light Black Hole Tai Special rod on a long range boat out of San Diego. :)

The blank weighs 1.4 oz and the rod weighs 3.8 oz.

I was close, LOL. Are the Tai Specials around any more, I think I looked them up and came up empty.
