Conservation is an important part of what we honor at Tantrum Sportfishing.  We support catch and release practices for the protection of Blue Marlin. Tantrum is laying the groundwork for future generations to enjoy, protect and experience this amazing Hawaiian big game fishing destination. While we do make the occasional decision to harvest a marlin in certain unique situations, catch and release is always preferred.

It is not necessary to kill your marlin to have a mount made.
