Its sporting quality profile is, of course, exceptional.


The Striped Marlin has a large frame, weighing up to 400 pounds and averaging 12 feet in length. This lends it extraordinary strength, allowing it to snap large-grade tackle with ease.


The Striped Marlin is a marathon swimmer, reaching up to 50 miles per hour.


The Striped Marlin will battle anglers, using its extreme size to break lines and crack poles. Expect sharp, harsh movements and occasional leaps.

Snagging a Striped Marlin proves difficult for even the most experienced of anglers. It’s recommended, therefore, to utilize charter crews while chasing one. These individuals have access to the appropriate tackle and supplies, increasing the chances of a successful hunt.
