Angler Gary Carter, fishing with** Captain **Yoan Alcala, Wireman Yefri Garcia **and Gaffman **Geiner Cortez **brought this potential **6# line class world-record Pacific blue marlin into Tropic Star lodge in Panama on August 23. The fish was landed using a Bill Buckland rod and Shimano Tiagra reel loaded with Momoi line. The fish weighed in at 252.8 pounds.
