It’s not uncommon for marlin fishermen to encounter large billfish that are simply too big to cover and cool in those tropical conditions while transporting those fish back to dock for the weigh in. The need for a large kill blanket is now a necessity for any boat fishing kill tournament or for fishing commercially.
As many tournament anglers know, every ounce counts when the fish hit the scales, and a good kill blanket helps keep dehydration and atrophy of the fish to a minimum. Those tropical and humid conditions can easily dry out the fishes’ outer and inner epidermal layers, resulting in weight loss.
Reliable Fishing Products offers two kill blanket sizes for tournament and commercial anglers in 7.5-feet and 10.5-feet long options. Click here to read more about the specs of the Marlin Blankets.
