Most anglers know the thrill of watching a fish go after their bait. But a marlin puts on quite a show.
This fish was 557 pounds. That is how big these fish can get.
Watch as a huge blue marlin attacks a lure in the waters off Kona, Hawaii.
The marlin swiped and lunged at the Big Island Lure off the back of Marlin Magic at least seven times. Marlins are known to use their bills to slice up or stun prey fish and are very aggressive.
They run hard and long, dive deep, and leap high into the air and will continue to fight with an amazing amount of energy and stamina.
Makes you wonder how hard that bad boy fought after getting hooked.
