Wow! Ultralight rod and 4lb line (even if it is CXX); that fisherman has some skills.

IGFA requires a membership to look up their records. However, I came across this article that is almost too amazing to be believable.

I think crupi has 4lb test record at 17+. He also has the 12lb class at 21+ and the 16lb class at 22+. His top 3 bass are over 60lbs....

As a young kid in Palm Beach Florida, I was on a quest to set a light tackle record for a lady fish. I had a spot where I could consistently catch Lady Fish in the 5 to 10 pound range. I wanted to catch one on 2# test. Now these fish fight like miniature Tarpon ..... I could not catch one of any size on 2# test .... 2# test is like fishing with hair, I can not even fathom catching a 500# marlin on 4# test.

I've heard stories on how they pull these off.

They get the Marlin to chase a trolling bait up to the boat, drop in a bait on 4 lb leader, and when he bites reach out and immediately touch the leader. (They consider it a catch when you grab the leader.) Boom. You just "caught" a marlin on 4 lb test.

With a Berkley Vanish leader, that is definitely the most amazing part of the story.

This is exactly correct!!!!

Not really catching anything....drop bait....eats bait....grab leader and break off.

No fight

You might read the article first. Those fish weren’t just “caught.” They were landed and hung.
