Base Fish Points


The Black Marlin is the largest billfish in the game, reaching more than 17ft in S size. It can caught by trolling in the Tropical Ocean. When hooked,it will fight hard by jumping out of ocean frequently, so it can be easily identified before it is caught. In real life, it's little dangerous to catch these marlins because they can jump onto boats, and it has been reported of this species impaling fishermen with their long bills. They are caught usually off the coasts of Australia. Some scientists are still discussing which is the bigger marlin: the Blue Marlin, or the Black Marlin.

Graphic Glitch: It's too long for the boat so when it's hung up, its long bill will go through the boat's deck.
