Cory Watson - Champion I fished on Twisted Bills at the Gold Coast Club's Light Tackle Tourney over the weekend with Scott Watson (dad) Corey Watson (son and champ) Scott Bretherton, and me ol' mate 'The Can Man'' Sam Lythgo Photos Tell the story :) It was great to be part of it - cheers and congrats Cory.
Peter Pakula You may remember last year a sprat called Hunter won the Bay Of Islands Junior tourney. Here's a great follow up from his dad Adam. "Hi Peter, you may remember last year Hunter getting a large Black Marlin on one of your lures to win the BOI juniors tournament. You also may remember you sent him a paua jet head phantom in Blue Angel as a well done. Well just to let you know on Saturday the lure you gave him captured him a 179.3kg Blue on 24kg line to win him the same event. It is also a NZ smallfry record claim. The following day the same lure did it again capturing his mate Scott his first ever marlin, a 70kg Stripey which was tagged and released. Many thanks Adam Scott"

Peter Pakula Some guys just seem to crack the code!! Hi Jo, I’m a real novice and fish solo. Only started proper last week.

One Person's Lures You can show your wife that you really don't have that many lures and really should have some more :) On a serious note we are getting quite a few similar requests from guys who have been 'collecting' lures for considerable time and want to know which lures should go where in a pattern and what are they missing that they need. I'm more than happy to help out via our Live Help on my websites, but I suggest getting patterns of lures as sets rather than buying lures 'cause you like them. We are also more than happy to help out in your selection based on line classes you use, boat configuration and area you fish.

Peter Pakula Just in today re Pakula Dojo Light hooks Thu 20/11/2014 01:23 PM VANUATU GAME FISHING FW: Dojo Hooks Thought you might like that read bellow..... my two boat fishing 2nd and 3rd being the new comer Kiwi team on Mama Mia ... Rudy tagged 2 blue and 1 sail on day 1 ( all on Dojo and Pakula Sprockets ) and saw none on day 2 , I tagged 2 blue on day 1 including one 250KG + on 15KG ( All with Dojo light ) and dropped one but unfortunately saw none as well on day 2 .... Cheers , Hervé From: Nigel Kittow Sent: Thursday, 20 November 2014 2:03 PM To: Subject: Dojo Hooks Hi Herve, I would like to thank you for the advice I received from Rudi in your shop on using the Dojo hooks instead of conventional game hooks. Since we arrived in June we were zero hookups from six marlin strikes using single mustads set as far back as allowable in the lure skirt. We were discussing the PVGFC 15kg Tournament and he recommended to change to double rigs of the fine gauge Dojos despite being a rival skipper!!! I liked the look of the hooks so changed over 6 of my favourite lures. We went out for a practice run the day before the tournament and released one marlin at around 80kg and a boated a 25kg yellowfin. As you know we hit a purple patch of form in the tournament releasing another four marlin and comfortably winning the opportunity to compete at the World Offshore Fishing Competition. We had gone from 0/6 to 5/5 with the hook change. We then went out for a few hours a couple of days later and raised another fish which had three real attacks on the lure, peeled off 20m of line then dropped off. For some reason my deckie had used a lure without the Dojos!!! I will only use Dojos from now on and will be changing over to heavier gauged ones now we are back on heavier line weights. Please thank Rudi as I am certain we would not be going to Costa Rica without the advise he gave us. Regards, Nigel Kittow "Mamma Mia"
