The white marlin is a middleweight compared to other billfish. It is found along the Atlantic and Gulf coasts. White marlin are exciting to catch as they will jump repeatedly once they are hooked. White marlin can be finicky at times and extremely aggressive at other times. Once they decide they are going to eat a bait, there is no stopping them. They will rush in with the mouth open ready to attack. Trolling is the most popular method for catching these fish. You can find them on temperature breaks near schools of bait fish. Balao, mullet, squid and eel are all excellent natural baits. Artificials such as plastic squid and trolling skirts will also fool a marlin to bite. White marlin are beloved by most anglers so they release most fish immediately.
