In this video, angler Vicky Stark fights a massive and strong blue marlin. Watch as it makes some incredible jumps during the bout.
Did you see those amazing jumps that huge blue marlin was making? It was literally dancing across the water at one point.
As you saw this fight lasted about 45 minutes before Vicky and the crew decided to part ways and let the marlin go. According to them, it would have taken a few more hours just to get the fish in the boat and at that point, survival would have been questionable.
This is a great example of conservation at work, Vicky knew her fighting the fish longer would have killed it, so she took the moral high road and set it free.
