So there we were, sat on the top deck of the bars opposite Pier 3 at Porto Colom Marina, Tenerife, drinking a nice cool water (yes you read that right, I was sat in a bar in Tenerife drinking a water) and practising knot tying (but more of that later) when the shout went up – ‘Their bringing another Marlin in!’

A big Marlin caught off the coast of Tenerife 

 

We rushed over to the balcony to get a better look and sure enough, one of the larger Tenerife big game fishing boats was coming into the harbour complete with a massive Blue Marlin strapped to the stern of the vessel.

Now I have to admit, part of me was fascinated with this spectacle, this fish was without doubt one of the largest I had ever seen but I was also struck with a little sadness that this magnificent creature had only a matter of hours ago been swimming around in the Atlantic Ocean off the coast of Tenerife in complete harmony with nature. Now it was dead.

Once the boat had reached the Marina wall, the fish was strapped to a hoist and a weighing scale then it was hauled up and weighed. We were informed that it weighed in excess of 240KG – now that’s BIG.

I had to take a picture – sorry for the quality, I only had the camera on my phone with me at the time – click the images to get larger pictures.
