Tips and Tactics for Black Marlin


Unlike other marlin, blacks live only in the Pacific. They are considered by most marine biologists to be a continental shelf species – meaning that they tend to remain near landmasses and are unlikely to be found in open waters. Perhaps that characteristic contributes to the black marlin’s more deliberate nature. Black marlin are more likely to remain in a specific area for longer periods of time, move slower than a blue or a striper, and feed in a more methodical, systematic way. Like all marlin, they are opportunistic feeders but differ from the others in that they are known to consume loads of reef fish. Hunting areas of structure for grouper, snapper and other reef fish, the black develops more of a territorial personality. Blacks caught and released in one area are often caught again in the same spot weeks later.

Bring up the subject of circle hooks and the average angler will roll his eyes back and make some type of groaning noise sounding his disproval. “Can’t trust ‘emâ€Â

Talking is my primary function. In many ways, yes. In other ways, no. On and off. And second? Maybe you should get some rest. What is your credit card number? Take it easy. "There you go again. "--Reagan
