The Sixteenth Two Oceans Marlin Tournament – Anglers’ Stories – Bad Company

Bad Company’s Story by Mike Broderick

Tuesday 15 February 2022

We were trolling near the 100m contour when the middle starboard rigger clip exploded with a bang that woke up the entire crew including the skipper.

Stuart Cambell was the designated angler and this would be his first Marlin He had tried for years, all over the place, but always missed the magic time slot.

It sounded straight down for the first 20 minutes. Fear, uncertainty, and doubt crept in. Suddenly the sea behind the boat exploded and a beautiful black jumped completely clear of the water.

After another 20 minutes, the fish was safely released.

Stuart said, “This is the only other, first time I did it, that I will remember forever.” (If you know what I mean😉)
