Josh Temple jumped on the scene as a well-known tuna fisherman out of Puerto Vallarta to start his career. He became a prolific marlin fisherman as his career evolved where he accomplished two major feats: crushing the single-season blue marlin release record with over 800 in a year aboard the vessel Carol Libby; and winning the prestigious Bisbee's Black & Blue Marlin Tournament in 2012. Josh now lives in his native British Columbia where he guides for salmon, steelhead, and halibut.
