Record Marlin Pulls Kayaker Out To Sea 12 Miles
Occurred on January 22, 2020 / Cambutal, Panama
Info from Licensor: "Adam was fishing out back of Los Buzos Kayak Fishing Resort in Panama when he hooked this 500-pound black marlin from his kayak. He had paddled from the beach out to the fishing grounds and within 2 hours he was hooked up and getting pulled out. He radioed his friends Robert, Darret and Captain Pio to bring a boat to assist. They caught up to him shortly after and followed alongside in case Adam needed help. They went so far out that another boat had to be sent with more gas to ensure they made it back to land. The marlin ended up towing Adam about 12 miles over nearly 5 hours. The marlin is the largest documented gamefish ever landed by a kayaker."
