My first billfish. Caught on my honeymoon back in 1986. Unfortunately it bypassed hitting the heavier out fits and bit on the lightest one making for a prolonged fight that exhausted the fish and we could not revive it boat side. Not proud of that fact but the meat was not wasted. Had a replica mount made of. From the fork of the tail to the top of the bill it measured exactly 120"s and weighed #216.
