White marlin, these smaller cousins of the blue marlin arrive slightly later than the blues most years usually in early August and stay till late October though some have been caught in November.

Averaging about 30 kg and easily reaching 50 kg these brightly colored acrobatic speedsters are a real treat on light tackle, often entering the spread in packs and double hook ups are common.

They are known to frustrate anglers the world over with their uncanny ability to through the hook as they repeatedly jump and tail walk in to the distance.
