544kg Black Marlin tagged

It all happened 4000km away with rookie big-game angler and 66-year-old Mr Perry catching a 544kg black marlin on a whirlwind fishing trip off the North Queensland Coast on Friday. While still short of the World record for a marlin - a specimen of over 700kg caught over 60 years ago - it is thought to be the biggest ever to be satellite tagged.
