National Geographic : 1941 Mar
Fighting Giants of the Humboldt 389 One Last Effort Before the Leap! Completely submerged except for the tip of its bill, the marlin swirls up for its final fling. Stripes which show up clearly here soon disappear when the fish is landed. Anglers consider this one of the luckiest photo graphs ever made of the "acrobat of the sea." It caught the fish in extraordinarily clear water, revealing details of the action just before the jump. An instant later its huge body was clear of the surface. A few more runs, each feebler than the one preceding, and its game battle ended.
