550lbs Black Marlin

550lb Black Marlin Greets Anglers in January

A 550lb Black Marlin Welcomes Anglers in January at The Zancudo Lodge

Marlin, sailfish and tuna are just some of the beasts to welcome guests this month at The Zancudo Lodge

“THIS was probably my best fishing day ever”…….and it couldn’t have happened to a better guest. On his second trip to the The Zancudo Lodge this season, Will Miller, one of the Lodge’s favorite clients and a great personal friend and his fishing partner W. Harris, experienced what most aspire to. While trolling two Islander lures through the middle of a tuna school, a massive wall of water pressed downward and then up exploded a massive Marlin….. a 550LB BLACK MARLIN lower jaw to fork 9.5 feet after a 2.5 hr fight. Hands down one of the biggest I have seen since working 15 years at the lodge here in Costa Rica. Their day did not end there……with tons of 50LB tunas and a sailfish to top it off. Just a day dreams are made of.

Here is some video of this blue water monster. Our captains estimated this black marlin at 550lbs with a 9.5″ jaw to tail fork measurement. Join us in 2021 to find the fish of your dreams in Costa Rica!
