Marlin Magazine Live at Pakula Lures at ICAST
Darren Hi Peter, just thought I'd let you know I landed 2 of these babes in Cabo 8 weeks ago. We went there for our honeymoon and a mate I've mine works on Red Rum Charters. So I couldn't resist to take him a Lumo Sprocket ( that I purchased from Chris Baty at complete Angler). The Mexicans were really impressed with it. 4 strikers and 2 tags in 2 hours. So I gave it to them as a present for my first Marlin catch. I trust you have fished in Cabo? What an amazing place!!!
Peter Had a few bites @pakulasprocket
Wildblue Portland Tuna fishing report.Plenty of school Tuna are being caught in close. This 124 kg. Tuna was caught today in 65 metre water off the Quarry.Owen Kittox,Etan Merritt and Jamie Burt who are from “New Zealand” caught this 124 kg. Tuna on a “Pakula Lure” as in photo also bent the gaff. They also lost one yesterday being on for a hr. in the same area..Note the Couta and Squid in the gut Content.
Paul Last minute rigging for the Apollo Bay competition coming up week after next. Spent a lot of time making sure my rigging is the best it can be, including pull testing the rigs. Re-rigged these mini lures using the same method as larger lures - everything is basically a miniature version of the larger rig - even cut down the springs in half to suit. Previously I used lighter Jinkai 100lb and smaller hooks for these lures but now upgraded to Momoi 150lb and a larger hook. Barrels will snack on these - twice before I've seen barrels hook up on this size lure.

Peter Wanganella Banks New Zealand 2016 on Bwana II Toby Brastling I'll get the stas for you, but lumo Med Sprocket Jet got 31 and we only straightened one of those great new hooks of yours at 22 for the one set of hooks.
IGFA Kona Blues - Where do they go? “When the IGFA Great Marlin Race (IGMR) was created, the vision of late IGFA chairman Packy Offield was to make all satellite tag data freely available to scientists and fisheries managers around the world.” The first Great Marlin Race was launched in 2009 in celebration of the Hawaiian International Billfish Tournament's (HIBT) 50th Anniversary and last year, the marlin research program returned to the HIBT for its seventh birthday where ten tags were generously sponsored and deployed during and in the weeks following the 56th HIBT. Last year, we had an incredible reporting rate of 90% with four of the nine reported tags reaching the full, programmed deployment duration of 240 days! Just one of those tags, though, recorded a remarkable linear distance of 2,933 nautical miles (nm)! Congratulations to Laguna Niguel Billfish Club Teams 1 & 2 for their marlin that traversed the Pacific from Hawaii to Mexico in 241 days! Tag sponsors Bob & Sally Kurz, Robert Chavers, Robert Dudley, and Chuck Salinger have won free entry to the 57th HIBT, a prize set up by the tournament to thank participants of this important research program. Not only is this distance the longest recorded from a Pacific blue marlin tagged during any HIBT IGMR, but this distance is currently in the running (against 63 other billfish) for first place for the entire IGMR race season! Thanks to the nine tags reported this past year, we observed that the blue marlin followed the common trend of southeast movements, with only one marlin crossing the equator. However, marlin traveled farther north than ever previously observed. We believe this occurred from a strong El Nino developed in the Pacific (and peaked in the winter of 2015) which produced above average surface temperatures and likely created more warm, usable habitat in the northern hemisphere. This is important because as the Pacific Ocean continues to warm, there may be increased suitable habitat in the northern hemisphere with less need to move south and cross the equator. Also thanks to the support and participation from the HIBT angling community, our colleagues at Stanford University were able to put multiple years of HIBT data to good use by submitting the first scientific manuscript from the IGMR for publication in a peer-reviewed journal! By using five years of tagging data from the HIBT (2009-2013), the study explored the effects low oxygen and low temperature on the vertical and horizontal movements of Pacific blue marlin. Their findings suggest that as low oxygen and low temperatures occur at shallower depths, marlin stop diving as deeply. Their findings also suggest that the decrease in temperature in equatorial waters (a characteristic associated with La Niña conditions) could create a barrier to southward trans-equatorial movement, which could potentially lead to a break in marlin populations between the northern and southern hemispheres. As we begin the 57th HIBT, we hope you will consider sponsoring a satellite tag because it is the only way we can learn more about billfish behavior in an effort to increase their conservation and protect the sport we love for future generations of fishing.

Josh Caught and released 3 big blues in three days out of Charleston, SC USA This being the biggest girl measuring at least 800lbs. All with Pakula hooks, they have an amazing hook up and we wont run another hook from now on with our lures...!!
Peter Another way to bend / bust hooks The lure is an Original Pakula Medium Sprocket that has a head diameter of 30mm. The rig in the lure is a size 25/25 with a hook gape of 25mm so the clearance to hook the fish is only 10mm as you can see in the photo. The minimum size hook should have a gape = head diameter and preferably one size larger than that. With only 10mm exposed the hook gets point loaded and often bends or breaks regardless of the make of hook. Please use the correct sized hooks in lures regardless of what your mates or social media reports. We make our living out of you guys catching fish! not raising them, not hooking them and not landing them does us no good at all! (and I'm pretty sure you'd rather catch them too!)
