Just got back from a fishing holiday in the Bay of Islands on my boat "Flying Start".
Tagged and released 6 marlins, 3 of them on the Medium Swimmer (Blue Knight) lure, even though it was swimming alongside various other named brands. Proof again what great lures these are! Cheers - Colin
Just a short note to say thank you for helping with the personalised lure you made for me. The quality and workmanship is outstanding and I can't wait to show it off this season.
I have included in the e-mail a photo of the marlin that we caught this year which at the time the fishing was very hard for some boats but we caught 2 marlin ( Blue and a Stripey) on two consecutive days on the same lure ( BLUE KNIGHT BIG SWIMMER). In fact the marlin swam past other lures to get it. Know that my boat will be fishing HOOKER lures this year.
Paired with one of our Wind on leaders. Wow - a fantastic catch for the launch Satisfaction II skippered by Kelvin Cruickshank.
His angler Graeme Wiggins played a blue marlin for 10 hours, with the fish dying during the play and a concerted effort between skipper, angler and crew planing up the fish and boating it. A Pin fish and competition winner . Also the new Club line weight Record for a Blue Marlin
