A SAM­PLE OF TOP LURES

Marlin - - BEFORE THE STRIKE -

MOLD CRAFT

BOBBY BROWN: This col­lab­o­ra­tion be­tween Mold Craft and Capt. Bobby Brown is a heavy-smok­ing plunger that pumps, splashes and shakes se­duc­tively. It runs well in a va­ri­ety of sea con­di­tions. It re­quires a soft or semistiff hook rig to re­al­ize its full ac­tion.

MERID­IAN AHI: This is an ex­am­ple of a lure

Capt. Steve Camp­bell first started test­ing in his ninth sea­son. It quickly rose to promi­nence and be­came one of his most con­sis­tent blue mar­lin pro­duc­ers. This medium-size an­gle-faced lure head, en­larged at the front and ta­per­ing aft, pops and smokes well on the third to fifth wave and in all sea con­di­tions. It bal­ances well with a stiff sin­gle fixed or swing­ing hook and ranks at the very top for pro­duc­ing clean mouth hookups. This makes it a good choice when the blues start billing more than ag­gres­sively bit­ing.

BLACK BART HAWAI­IAN BREAK­FAST:

De­vel­oped by renowned Capt. Bart Miller, this lure runs well with a stiff sin­gle fixed-hook rig and in rough sea con­di­tions. Its cup-face an­gled head causes it to plunge, wig­gle, splash and shoot side to side. Camp­bell records ex­actly where the hook is po­si­tioned for each cap­ture and this lure boasts one of the high­est in­side-out mouth hookup rates in his data set.

RED GILL RG4 M: This lure caught more blue mar­lin than any other lure fished from Blue Mar­lin Magic in 2017. It is an ab­so­lute top pro­ducer.
