From Costa Rica to Nova Scotia, Panama to Puerto Vallarta, and Tofino to Cabo, Josh Temple is a world-renowned captain and mainstay face of the sport fishing industry. In the mid-2000's, the "young gun" captain made his name running charters to the famed giant yellowfin haunts off PV and the Revillagigedo Archipelago, where "cow" tuna to over 300-pounds are the name of the game.
In 2012, along with Captains Tony Berkowitz and Herk Marsella, Capt. Josh won perhaps big game fishing's most prestigious title. Labeled by Sports Illustrated as "The Super Bowl of Fishing", the Bisbee's Black and Blue is the crème de la crème of all marlin tournaments. With their victory, Capt. Josh and crew aboard Frantic Pace took home a staggering $2.4 million in winnings. On a mission for records, JT manned the 60' Spencer Carol Libby as she sailed the pristine Pacific waters off Mexico, Central America, and beyond... Already with a few records under his belt, including an incredible 68 blue marlin releases in under four days of fishing, Capt. Josh continues pushing the boundaries between big game fishing passion, obsession, and madness...
UPDATE: On June 26th, 2014, Captain Josh and crew did the unthinkable and released their 423rd blue marlin of the season out of home port Los Sueños [Costa Rica], breaking the long standing single-season record of 422 blue marlin releases. If the record wasn't enough... How about more than doubling it? Team Carol Libby continued their dominance on their way to becoming the sport's undisputed blue marlin "kings" and ended their season with an incredible final tally of 884 blue marlin releases, a number that is unlikely to be touched for quite some time.
