40# PowerPro Bimini to Uni-Uni 5' 50# Seaguar to Macmahon snap swivel. I just go a new system that I hope will give me a bit extra abrasion resistance. Hollow braid and 20' leaders. Ck it it out at Black Water and PowerPro Ace. Leader goes into braid with a nice through the guides connection. I'll report back in a week or 2.

It was just up above the Bimini. The doubled line was about 3 '. I'm rough guessing the weight could've been 15-30

Hi there,

This must have been a really nice fish.
And this prove that your lures are good, because the bigger they get, the clever they get these fish...

Have a good day,
Pecheur

Can't wait to see some of Brendan's catch when he gets his order of 1 ozer. Here's a quote from your friend. "Hi Mark.

I just wanted to emial you to let you know that a friend of mine in Darwin Australia gave me one of your 1oz plugs three days ago

In four hours of fishing i caught over 20 fish. These fish were the Spanish Mackeral, Golden Trevally, Giant Trevally and also the Queenfish up to a meter in length. The pelagic's love them. However i lost the only lure to a very hungry Mackeral.

He then sent me the link to your site and i have just brought four more of them. I cant wait to get them and continue to try them. I will send you some video of our next adventure with them here in Darwin.


Thanks for making a great product.


Kind regards
Brendan "

That sure would've made a great vid. I gotta get DownUnder.

Hi Mark,

Yes He is a good fisherman this Brendan.
And yes the fishing can sometime be good down here, but not as beautiful than in your part of the world.
And remember, it's full of croc down here...
;-)

I am glad that some people start to love your lures in Darwin.

Have a good day,
Pecheur

Mark,

I've been an old school whipper for years using an 25 year old 9' fiberglass rod, 850SS loaded with 30lb mono barrel swiveled to 5" of 180 mono to a home made wooden plug. I've been blessed to catch my share of ulua with this set up, bt I realize it's time to upgrade to something more user friendly. I don't fish much anymore, but would like to build a set-up that would allow me to try your 1-1/2 oz. jumpin jacks and bars. Not chasing the big boys anymore, I'll be happy with some borderlne papio/ulua or whatever bites. Before I buy a few, I'd like to ask a couple of questions. Do your plugs tend to throw much water on a moderate retrieve or do they tend to sink pretty quickly? Does the bar tend to crate a little more splash and stay atop the surface on a moderate to fast retrieve? As you can tell I'm a big splash guy. I appreciate your time to respond to my questions. I'd like to get set-up within the next few weeks in anticipation of the summer runs.

Mahalo & Aloha,

Mahalos for your interest in my lures. The bars are easier to keep splashing on the surface. The surface plugs sink fast and require more work/faster retrieves to keep splashing on the surface. Subsurface they produce a nice bubble trail and if popped to the surface make an attractive chug motion.

Mahalo for the reply Mark! I just placed an online order a couple of nights ago that included a few plugs and several bars in teh 1.5 oz size. If you don't mind sharing, what weight powerpro would you recommend with this size lure? I'm hoping to find a 10' or 11' medium or med/heavy action rod. Thanks in advance!

Aloha
