A first marlin at 86 years old

Owen Broadbelt proves it's never too late to catch your first marlin. Owen celebrated his 86th birthday in style by pulling in this 280kg monster in just 26 mins.

The marlin was caught while heading to the Three Kings, just off the 505.

The fish was tagged and released.

Thanks to Owen's grandson Zane for sending this in.
