A twinge of sadness after record catch

Date: 1/6/2004

The 156.6 kg striped marlin was speared by David Mullins during a dive on Good Friday at South East Bay on the remote Three Kings Islands, 64 km northwest of Cape Reinga. The two hour battle ended with a world record and a vow never to kill another of the giant gamefish.
