Captain Marlin Parker
It was destiny that landed Marlin Parker in the world of big game fishing. In 1954 his father Capt. George Parker caught the first grander (1002 lb Pacific Blue Marlin) ever landed in US waters. Marlin was born 3 months later and named in honor of the great fish that had recently smashed the all tackle world record. Marlin grew up fishing and began charter fishing professionally in 1976.
Capt. Marlin Parker's tournament records are impressive! Winning both the World Cup and the Bisbee's Black and Blue. Marlin's largest fish to date is 1400 lbs caught off the Kona coast. His most recent accomplishment was catching a 973lb Blue Marlin on 50 lb test line in the 2008 Hawaiian International Billfish Tournament. Capt. Marlin Parker also has his own line of fishing lures, Marlin Magic Lures, which are well known world wide.
In more recent years Marlin was the 2002 World Cup First Place winner, also in 2002 he placed first in the Shoot Out Tournament. The luck continued in 2003 with 5 First place tournament wins for the Marlin Magic including the HIBT Henry Chee Award.
He has carried on his father's tradition of building custom lures and is now a well known lure maker of Marlin Magic Lures that can be found world wide.
