Ben Arnold has caught big fish before, but he didn't think he would catch anything this size. It took Arnold three and a half hours to reel in this massive blue marlin and becoming the "WOW" catch during the 46th annual Pensacola International Billfish Tournament. This blue marlin earned Arnold and his crew $10,000 and took all four men to haul the massive fish into the boat. They say the marlin was estimated to be between 30 to 35 years old.
Now that is a big fish and I don't know if I would even have the strength to reel that big boy in or fight the fish for three and a half hours. But it would be awesome to catch a fish that massive and especially in a tournament. Can't get any better than that.
Would you be happy catching a massive fish like this?
