Capt. Peter B. Wright, editor at large of Marlin magazine, has fished in all the waters of the world. He began working on charter sport-fishing boats at Hillsboro Inlet in south Florida while still in grade school and fished marlin tournaments in Bimini throughout his high-school and college years. His first experience with the Great Barrier Reef in 1968 convinced him to move to Australia, where he has fished every season since establishing permanent-resident status there that year.
Capt. Wright divides his residency between Stuart, Florida, and Cairns, Australia. In addition, he has owned and operated a charter sport-fishing boat in Kona, Hawaii for 5 years. He has caught more 1,000-plus-pound marlin — granders — than any other charter captain or angler in history. Capt. Wright has won dozens of tournaments and has guided his clients to numerous world records. In the fall of 2007, Peter B. Wright was inducted into the International Game Fish Association. Peter was selected for the important contributions he has made to sport fishing through angling achievements, literature, the arts, science, education, communication, invention and administration of fishery resources.
