Scientific Name: Kajikia audax
Average Weight/Length: The largest striped marlin live in the cool waters off New Zealand. That nation owns the current all-tackle world record, a 494-pounder caught back in 1986. New Zealand is still the world’s hottest spot for those wanting to catch the very largest striped marlin.
Location & Habitat: Striped marlin are species generally from the Pacific waters; however, striped marlin still cover the widest range of any billfish species. Striped marlin habitat stretches from the west coast of the United States, Mexico and South America across the wide expanse of the Pacific and throughout the Indian Ocean all the way to Africa and New Zealand. Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, is regarded as the world’s epicenter for striped marlin.
Physical Description: A striped marlin’s dorsal fin is much taller, nearly as tall as the depth of the body. So, if your marlin has a very tall dorsal, it’s a striped marlin, whereas the blue marlins dorsal fin is no taller than roughly half of the depth of its body. A striped marlin has a more flattened look to it, whereas the blue marlin is rounder.
Striped marlin can be caught fairly close to shore, and lacking the size and weight of the blue marlin or the black marlin, the striped marlin is more acrobatically inclined. Fishing methods include trolling whole fish, strip baits, or lures; also live bait fishing. At Coast To Coast Fish Mounts we have the capability to match the distinct characteristics that only the striped marlin displays when doing a striped marlin replica mount.
