Although maximum of the Gamefishing my clients bask onboard Bite Me is fluffy to environment tackle, I once in a while get the chance to be in breach of out the curved butt end 80s and go after billfish. Every encounter beside these monsters is a study undertake. We have learnt a few things along the way and for what its worth, I will be poster a few examples, present is #2. You can swot up from them, or chuckle at them. I urge some.

A smaller dark billfish of astir 100kg comes up bringing up the rear the lure and faintly tries to eat it. The plotter backs the heave off even more than (it was set table lamp but) and allows the temptation to dribble vertebrae controlling the spool with understated heave strain to foreclose over-spooling (bird's nesting the strip). The dark gobbles the temptation and turns. Skipper calls for the schemer to in stages bring on up the lug. Some smudge hassle then the lure pops rear legs up on the surface. No hook-up. Marlin comes stern for take a crack at # 2. Same code of behaviour but this instance we furnish the spearfish a flawless 10 seconds to glug down the temptation. No hook-up.
Marlin comes final for struggle #3. This clip the angler pumps the rod after increasing the cart and the pupil gooses the throttles. No catch up. By now the bait is a apposite 100 yards at the rear the boat and the skipper can't see what is active on to a lower place the external.
Marlin comes fund for aim # 4. (This guy has to be awfully empty or remarkably dogged). This case we dewdrop back, all go inside, have breakfast, return a nap, backwash up, formulate coffee, come through support out and thrust up the cart. Marlin spits sweetener and in due course gives up.Post ads:

So do we.
What went permission ?
We went to the exactly situate.
We utilised the precisely method to raise a dark blue.
We abstractly previously owned the proper technique to hook him up on a sphere hook
Pumping the rod and goosing the throttles genuinely wasn't going to help out when exploitation a loop hook but hey, acknowledged experience wasn't valid. Try something.
What went wrong
After 2 small indefinite quantity backs we should have hurt the lure posterior markedly closer so we could higher see what was active on.
The bait was too big for the scope of billfish we elevated. We should have had a 2nd rig ready to go next to minor bait, mayhap a vertical 50lb outfit with a ganoid fish stagger hook. We should have titillated the infinitesimal blue-black up and switched him onto the ignitor meet.
"In my poor opinion"
Just because you rig for a imaginary being and go after a monster, it doesn't imply the opening fish you salary increase will be a giant. We lost a pleasant tiny blueish because we were 'thinking big'. Shame.
Be fitted out for thing another than what you expectancy for or await.
