What's the longest you've ever fought to land a fish?
Haven't fished much offshore, but landed a nice 100-150# Pacific Sailfish in Costa Rica which probably took about 35 minutes.

Roughly 30 minute fight for a 28# catfish on the red in 36' water. Bastard worked me over but I got him.

Oh, this was done on 50lb test tackle.

3 hours on a marlin. About 500 lbs tagged and released. I've mated on marlin that took 5 hours. Brutal.

How do you mate on a marlin? The girl and guy get in the water with the fish and then get it on?

About 40 minutes for a 135# tarpon. Felt like I just left the gym after. My arms were like noodles. Didn't help that we couldnt find a fighting belt for the first 80% of the fight.

Hooked up on a 155lb yellowfin at beginning of first half of LSU vs Auburn the year Cam Newton beat LSU. Gaffed him at half. Probably 90 minutes. I was in shape at the time, but he kicked my arse pretty good.
