Black marlin

Ken Picknell (left) and his fishing partner Tony Reti display their 200-kilogram black marlin in 1989. The pair had gone fishing in Tony’s dinghy, looking for snapper off Kaiaua in the Firth of Thames. They spent half an hour getting the 3.6-metre fish alongside the boat, and then towed it ashore using the anchor rope. They intended to smoke the fillets.
