Tis Stripe Marlin was caught in an area off Montousa that was covered in small flying fish and ballyhoo!  Stripe Marlin aren’t as popular in the areas of Montousa Island and the Hannibal bank but when there was this much bait in one area they do seem to follow it in from the depper cooler water! This Stripe was caught on a large blue runner being slow trolled off the outrigger!
