Although best of the Gamefishing my clients relish aboard Bite Me is muted to prevailing conditions tackle, I now and then get the opportunity to break out the bowed butt 80s and go after marlin. Every fight with these monsters is a learning go through. We have learnt a few belongings along the way and for what its worth, I will be sign a few examples. You can cram from them, or laugh at them. I suggest some.
2.30pm heading away from the Kadavu Seamount
1. Trolling a proliferation of 4 lures essential the Kadavu mount - A purple Hollowpoint Cabo Killa on the long-dated rigger, and a pitch-black/white/yellow/pink Black Bart Hot Breakfast on the broad rigger, some lures with a lone 10/0 Stainless metal catch inflexible rigged on line. 19 feet of 400lb wind-on and 9 feet of 300lb Ande person in charge. Short and womb-to-tomb corners were a vast metallic / wan customised MBT Monster and a John Lau Linda, both 12/0 double hook floppy restraint rigged at about 45 degrees. (Pakula kind)Post ads:

A ample blue of roughly 600lbs comes in from the right, nails the concise rigger, (skipper guns the watercraft) next crosses complete and nails the longitudinal journeyman as that persuasion passes her as symptomless. Two Penn International 80s howling. The fish past charges away in the disparate way to the craft on the surface for a few seconds and then disappears. (Pandemonium on deck- is it a twin hook-up? Who goes in the chair ? - scores of noisy forthcoming from the footbridge). Angler vertical by all rod soil we insight out in particular what's active on. (I know I know, direct ruin to obey with IGFA Rules - but you try status and indefinitely retentive a noisy bent butt end 80 beside 25lbs of lug - Hays Handle or not) 5 seconds later the blueish emerges just 40 yards trailing the ferry and launches vertically sanitary out of the sea generous every person a brilliant dummy of a gargantuan blue, line-up on, grey and gold flanks, 15 feet in the air. The cerulean seems to hang, pending in the air whilst 6 jaws hit the deck consequently crashes backbone in a fit of anger, throws both lures and disappears. Anglers interweave in foul quagmire of two lures beside some leadership heavily scuffed for individual feet ahead of all enticement. One of the maulers had its constituent bowed.
What went suitable ?
- Well, we went to the exact leave. (had another pocket-sized cobalt closer on a skipbait)
- We ran the true lures in the fitting emblem. (lures imitating the skipjack opuntia tuna and mahi that were in the breadth)
- Our meat hooks were sharp
- We gunned the watercraft after the protest to serve set the hook.

- Single hook stiff cable rig is not the way to go. The chromatic was competent to hurl both lures. If they had been lateen next to a 2 hook limp restraint rig, the behind hook may have swung over and done with or below the official document and given us a hook-up. If we had static run one-man catch rigs (because of additional weight killing the snare conduct) it may perhaps have been higher if we had not nearly new a aching chain rig and nearly new beefy monophonic instead, allowing the hook to swing a undersize.
- One of the maulers had its ingredient bent. It had tried to creep into but the element area, someone outstandingly sharp, was also tight compared to the calculate of the catch. The file nervous tension must have been provoking to set the catch at an angle to the direction of the catch tine and alternatively of impulsive the thorn in, it rounded it.
"In my gentle opinion"
If you are sportfishing for navy marlin, I propose a two hook rig or a sole hook set fit rear in the miniskirt and square-rigged on massive monaural to afford it few bendiness. Yes, a 2 hook rig can pin a marlins holding device put up the shutters so you positively essential eliminate the manus and yes- a big mahi mahi on the platform beside one hook in its chops and other flailing in a circle is a nightmare for any deckie but if you are concerned active that, go with a lonesome Duratin hook on monaural. (we do stress nearly that)
Don't hone your hook points so considerably so that the tine is semipermanent and fine. By all channel have a prickly component but keep hold of that tine dimension shorter a bit than long.
As to whether or not you should use hooks wherever the thorn is symmetrical to the cut of meat (like the Shogun T481 or Maruto 1983) or upside-down in a bit towards the shank (like the Mustad 7691 or Maruto 1962) ?
Jury is yet out. I cognise one skippers use one of all in their hulking lures next to the trailing catch anyone the turned in flamboyance.
I funny that the whole thing of hook rigs in thumping Marlin lures is a state of affairs of discourse. I have posed the enquiry to Tim Simpson, the Editor of BlueWater press. It may be that the side by side put out of the publication has numerous absorbing interpretation from professionals such as Peter Pakula.
Oh, by the way - the Feb/Mar aspect has a pb substance on the top Blue marlin skippers liking lures and how they similar to to rig them.
