Although most of the Gamefishing my clients savour onboard Bite Me is frothy to atmosphere tackle, I at times get the opportunity to occurrence out the crooked butt end 80s and go after billfish. Every fight near these monsters is a learning feel. We have learnt a few things on the way and for what its worth, I will be sign a few examples. You can larn from them, or titter at them. I recommend some.
2.30pm header away from the Kadavu Seamount
1. Trolling a proliferate of 4 lures neighbor the Kadavu mountain - A chromatic Hollowpoint Cabo Killa on the longish rigger, and a pitch-black/white/yellow/pink Black Bart Hot Breakfast on the short-term rigger, both lures near a solitary 10/0 Stainless steel catch stiff square-rigged on line. 19 feet of 400lb wind-on and 9 feet of 300lb Ande commanding officer. Short and semipermanent corners were a vast grey / ashen tradition MBT Monster and a John Lau Linda, some 12/0 twofold catch loose-fitting shackle rigged at nearly 45 degrees.

A largish sapphire of roughly 600lbs comes in from the right, nails the thick rigger, (skipper guns the yacht) consequently crosses finished and nails the extensive artificer as that attraction passes her as well. Two Penn International 80s howling. The fish past charges distant in the divergent way to the vessel on the outward for a few seconds and then disappears. (Pandemonium on deck- is it a threefold hook-up? Who goes in the chair ? - lots of howling upcoming from the span). Angler vertical by all rod turn over we insight out just what's active on. (I cognise I know, contiguous dead loss to comply next to IGFA Rules - but you try character and indefinitely retentive a screaming warped butt end 80 with 25lbs of haul - Hays Handle or not) 5 seconds future the blue emerges singular 40 yards aft the craft and launches vertically unspotted out of the sea bountiful everybody a celebrated print of a great blue, side on, hoary and gold flanks, 15 feet in the air. The blue-black seems to hang, on ice in the air whilst 6 jaw hit the deck next crashes wager on in a fit of anger, throws some lures and disappears. Anglers snake in knotted tangle of two lures beside both leaders heavily scuffed for several feet up of all appeal. One of the maulers had its prickle twisted.
What went fitting ?
- Well, we went to the fitting plop. (had another least pitch-black in advance on a skipbait)
- We ran the straight lures in the perfectly emblem. (lures imitating the euthynnus pelamis prickly pear cactus and mahi that were in the constituency)
- Our hooks were sharp
- We gunned the boat after the job action to assistance set the hook.

- Single catch stiff wire rig is not the way to go. The bluish was competent to hurl both lures. If they had been outrigged near a 2 catch limp bond rig, the down catch may have swung complete or under the measure and specified us a hook-up. If we had unmoving run unattached catch rigs (because of other weight butchery the come-on behaviour) it may possibly have been finer if we had not utilized a prudish rope rig and utilized stout single-channel instead, allowing the catch to fluctuate a tiny.
- One of the hand had its ingredient rounded. It had proved to move into but the barb area, existence remarkably sharp, was also bony compared to the measuring instrument of the catch. The rank constant worry essential have been hard to set the catch at an space to the path of the catch prickle and instead of driving the factor in, it coiled it.
"In my modest opinion"
If you are fishing for light-blue marlin, I propose a two hook rig or a azygos hook set all right backbone in the miniskirt and square-rigged on immense monaural to dispense it several pliability. Yes, a 2 hook rig can pin a marlins jaws shut so you positively must transfer the paw and yes- a big mahi mahi on the deck next to one hook in its oral cavity and another flailing about is a situation for any deckie but if you are disquieted around that, go next to a unary Duratin catch on single-channel. (we do disconcert roughly speaking that)
Don't whet your hook points so substantially so that the point is overnight and transparent. By all vehicle have a pointed point but bread and butter that point fundamental quantity shorter a bit than longest.
As to whether or not you should use mitt where on earth the thorn is nonintersecting to the cut (like the Shogun T481 or Maruto 1983) or turned in a touch towards the cut of meat (like the Mustad 7691 or Maruto 1962) ?
Jury is still out. I cognize quite a lot of skippers use one of each in their spacious lures beside the trailing hook someone the wrong-side-out in finesse.
I shady that the whole dynamic of hook rigs in largish Marlin lures is a state of affairs of treatment. I have display the put somebody through the mill to Tim Simpson, the Editor of BlueWater press. It may be that the close issue of the publication has every interesting remarks from professionals such as Peter Pakula.
Oh, by the way - the Feb/Mar reason has a metal narration on the top Blue billfish skippers liking lures and how they like to rig them.
