Hooking two big marlin or tuna at once ranks as a problem for which every angler wishes. But seriously, how do you deal with a pair of monsters that want to run in different directions?

If the other fish is still on the line by the time you land the first, that’s a bonus. Use the tips we outline in this story to try to land it too.
