Pending World Records

Postby Phantom Menace » Tue May 21, 2013 6:35 pm

New mens and womens spearfishing records for Striped Marlin.

Mens - 138kg
Womens - 100kg

(and a Marlin on a polespear that weighed in at 109kg - a worlds first on a polespear).

These were shot at the Wanganella Bank which is mostly outside the NZ EEZ so they are probably not NZ records.

None of the above are easy to do - significant prep, planning and teamwork to achieve (as well as big kahunas).

Pictures are on Facebook - search for Wettie - the Darren Shields page.

(Before you get too carried away there are very few Marlin taken with spearguns)

EDIT: Mullins record is 156kg. Apparently there are 3 different bodies that recognise world records ... (kinda like boxing I guess)
