According to Outdoor Life Magazine, On Nov 6 off of Mozambique, a giant Black Marlin was hooked which the fishermen estimated it being well over 1000 lbs when they saw it near the boat. After hours of fighting the marlin, a large tug was felt on the line. It was later noticed that the Marlin was attacked by a shark and partially eaten. The Marlin was later weighed at 1107lbs. It was estimated it weighed between 1350 to 1420 before the shark attack. The current African record stands at 1298lbs.
