Some of the biggest Marlin in the World are caught here

I visited Ascension for a second attempt at the Six Gill Shark world record. Catching Shark to approx 1000lbs during the first couple of nights, I caught countless Yellowfin Tuna, Atlantic Blue Marlin to 600lbs and an Atlantic Sailfish 100lbs.
On the third night I hooked into a monster Six Gill which looked nearly double the size of the first shark caught, unfortunately, the crane used to weigh record fish had broken down and the huge shark was released without the record being claimed.
On the final day I hooked the largest Tiger Shark ever caught from Ascension at 900-1000lbs, it was the longest Shark I ever saw. I have now caught Tiger Shark from both the Pacific and Atlantic, unfortunately, the nights were as black as the Ace of Spades so photographs of Sharks were impossible.
