Few are the fishermen that can consider themselves lucky to tangle with a blue marlin, extraordinary is the fisherman to hook into a genetic freak of a marlin.

Out of Los Suenós Marina, on Costa Rica’s Pacific coast Capt. Juan Carlos Zamora with Carlos Espinoza Jimenez and Roberto Salinas Hernandez on the Spanish Fly out of Los Suenos Marina captured these images of an extremely rare albino Blue Marlin. This is some of the best shots we have seen, with numerous jumps as well some shots close to the boat. Thanks very much to crew on the Spanish Fly for sharing these awesome photographs!

According to the Billfish Report, Billfish experts say that this may be the first ever captured on film.
