The rig as shown in the report, can you buy them made up or do you make your own?

 


 

Glider, if yours weighted 18Kg, how much do you think mine weights? I didn't have a scale with me and the one in the pic wasn´t even the biggest I caught. I think I may have to change my record...

Wasn't my doing, I was busy holding the rod ::S

My skipper was so good that he had time to drive the boat, pull the fish inside and even take underwater photos: Daryl over at Desroches Island.  Thanks to him.

Well done Tre,

Sometimes we forget the quality of the pictures in a fishing trip, but in the end that's really what we will keep and that will make us remember the trip.

A few of my pals snuck of to Inhaca this past week, weather was not great but the lads persisted and focussed on marlin.

Report backs said they were spooled by 2 marlin, boated a saile and dorado, and a bunch of hoo again.

See attached pic, 32kg Hoo taken on marlin lure this past weekend at Inhaca.

Had all lures go off at once, 4 bitten off.

Hey Greg,

Expensive indeed, add those 2 numbers you listed together to get closer to price per lure (black bart / pakulas etc)

Am making some Hoo traces as per the article you kindly posted and planning a trip to Inhaca for  round number two (hoo) to target them specifically

Cheers,

Peter

Surely they can't be that expensive? I would have thought between R100 and R350 maybe!;)

On Strike, well done to your mates!

Guys what is your take on rigging steel with the intension of actually catching Marlin? Either running steel for say 8' or even just 1'. Would you get less strikes? Any thoughts?  I always belived Marlin were less line shy.

Hi Ian,

Ja you are right ... Nauti Boy and Mitchell just seem to pull wahoos more often than not ... remember those machines they weighed at last years closed!

fair point, we have used wire up to 10ft long on some skipbats,The Aussie's use steel single strand daily and we all know what sort of results they get?
I think the only challenge will be in the connection, having a bulky swivel or crimps are very hazardous for the wire man when your up close and personal like that, as well as trying to reduce the amount of connections in your leader...

Hi Shaggie

I made a couple of wahoo traces and baits ready. I am off to Ponta next week. I know where I caught wahoo previously so this time will the speed just be much higher. I could get 1 Kg lead weights in a cigar shape which a mate of mine casted for me. So check it out I am going to run the sea flat next week. I will phone you if it works well.

Cheers

Hi Greg,

I'm looking for some "c4serius" bullets and some trolling weights - any pointers where to get commercially ?

Tnx Peter

Who made the trolling leads for you bud? Love to get at least a few and can then make a mould.

Other option: ask Bennie to help me make a dummy and then make a mould :)
