Gordon FehstAs someone who fishes for fish to eat, I don't give a rats arse what others think, recently we caught a good broadbill out of lakes Entrance , had a heap of shit comments on our photo, but don't care! I don't believe in catching fish just for fun and I will continue to kill 95 % of fish that come boat side . I take what I can use then not fish for awhile! But like they say each to there own

Ian PeacockIf you read Al s article, Peak Sportsfishing have released hundreds of marlin and keep one thats was probably going to die, whats the issue. The foreign longliners slaughter thousands all over the Pacific and Indian oceans, plus all the Tuna, and not a word said. Picking an easy target maybe.

Doug RoseAs an avid fisherman, welcome to the world of Lycra bike riders . Haters will hate. Laws and common sense have no place with these people.

Stephen McComb99% of them are keyboard warriors with no brains of their own who just condemn because someone told them to, and have contributed nothing towards the conservation they are supposedly standing up for.

Richard DavisThe sooks must be perfect to make any noise!! They don’t eat fish, meat, poultry or anything else that has walked the earth. Just ignore them and go catch another

Ben TetleyI would love to see a breakdown of the actual financial effort that went into that fish. The follow on effects are hard to quantify but definitely measurable with a degree of uncertainty. At the end of the day this fish has just as much right to life as a flathead or chicken, size and species shouldn’t make any difference so all these trolls who aren’t practicing vegans can shut the hell up.

Richard O'FerrallThe trolls and virtue evangelists are just white noise and should be dismissed as such - shouting their misguided and immature rants on the internet doesn't cut it with real game fishermen. The issue is essentially whether the skipper and his team should have weighed a potential record fish, which after years of effort and a history of scientifically beneficial tag and release fishing, they were more than entitled to do if that was their decision. As for the rest, you can make your own decision if the time (ever) comes, and we will all respect it... and in the meantime stop ramming your confected outrage down everyone else's throat.

Luke GavalasAs i read above. Laws and common sense. If its within the law, its eaten or taxidermied because its the anglers prize catch. So be it. There will always be sooks who 1. Have never fought a fish like that and understand its signifcance and 2. Are greeny virgins.

Rowan NicksBlue marlin are true sports fish. Unfortunately some are highly strung and die during the battle just like horses during the Melbourne cup and also lots of other less publicised races. Yes minimal outcry about banning horse racing. Think back to 1926 and Mister Zane Grey. And the fish that he had the fortune to fight. As technology skills and knowledge has improved. Fish will still die during the fight. The same as horses die during a race.

Mike HarrisAt the end of the day what these idiots don't take into consideration is that without the sport fishing industry the commercial sector would have made them extinct a long time ago. The vast majority of recreational fishing people will take a fish to eat or tag and release by choice.

James DentonPerfectly said Al. Fishing is fishing,... these guys hooked and landed the most sought after & mythical fish of a lifetime,.... Having spent years fishing, searching, hooking, tagging and releasing other bill fish. They should not be bullied for it but celebrated! The big blue would have been really unlikely to survive after four hours on the hook in sharky waters and at the end of the day, is a prize fish. Well done Eddy & crew.

Joseph Ignatios Deegan SmytheThe 100% catch and release purists are a definite and irritating phenomenon. For Marlin in particular studies show that although they have very high release survival rates a small percentage still die so the purists have probably got "blood on their hands" regardless

Wade ChristensenTheyre clowns.. Humans hunted to live forever.. Like I heard a smart greenie say the other week, why dont you all just got and buy your meat from Coles or woolies where nothing gets harmed in the process!!! Hahahaha..

Ben PughThat'll do!!! Unfortunately its a weakened world where boiling crayfish is no longer allowed!!! I feel so saddened of thinking what might come about for recreational fisherman... Band together and stick by what we love This is our blood... Well written Al!°

Colin FoxFor eternity everyone has had an opinion and always will do, it’s just that with social media every man and his dog gets their chance to voice their opinion without knowing any facts what so ever. They should keep their own dumb ass opinions to them selves and be happy with their opinion whilst leaving the rest of society in peace to get on with the reality of life. Sorry for rant 😳😬🎣
