Mrs Laurie, a great grandmother who has been fishing her whole life said catching the big black marlin is something she will never forget. Mrs Laurie said that "I certainly didn't feel 85 when I was bringing it in, I was too busy concentrating on keeping it on and getting it into the boat,".

While this is the first time she has caught a marlin, Mrs Laurie is a keen fisherwoman and plans to continue fishing for many years to come.
