Do you eat marlin?


They were talking about eating it tonight. And the guy next to me said they cut it up and gave it to people around. Tammy the main lady talking said as part as the tournament rules they have to bring the fish in still edible. If it's been dead too long and you can't eat it, it doesn't count! So I'd say yes you can eat it!


Huge fish.
