    Blue Marlin Fishing Tips. Matt.M article for Big Marlin Charters fishermen.
    The Atlantic Blue Marlin is one of the
    most prized game fish species in the world. The thrill of catching
    these behemoths is considered by many the ultimate challenge in all
    of fishing. Anglers flock to warm water destinations in the hopes to
    catch blue marlin. The goal of serious anglers is always the
    same—catch a blue marlin weighing upwards of 1,000 pounds.


    Follow these Blue Marlin Fishing Tips

    Fish Deep Edges of Underwater
    Canyons

    Blue marlin can definitely be caught in
    the open ocean, but more often than not they are found in deep edges
    of underwater canyons. Looks for them in areas with steep drop offs.

    Heavy Duty Gear

    Most experienced marlin anglers will
    use single or dual speed lever drag reels. You need complete control
    over the drag if you want to successfully fight a marlin, which is
    why premium lever drag reels are so preferred.

    Your fishing rod needs to have a good
    amount of backbone to handle marlin. It’s also preferred if the rod
    has roller guides so the line can flow smoothly. The ideal rod has a
    soft tip, stiff butt, good backbone and roller guides. The last thing
    you want is to lose your fish because your tackle can’t handle big
    fish.

    Monofilament line is the line of choice
    for malin anglers. It’s strong, elastic, and has the stretch needed
    to absorb the impacts as your giant fish thrashes through the water.
    Usually about 25 feet of 200 to 400 pound mono leader is desired.

    Artificial Lures

    Bright artificial lures can be trolled
    behind the boat to entice the marlin bite. Usually chuggers, jets,
    and plungers are the weapon of choice.

    Don’t Dismiss Live Baits

    Live bait also works well. Whatever the
    marlin are regularly feeding on can be used as live bait. Some
    anglers prefer to catch fresh live bait with their rigs to use for
    fishing marlin. Bonito and false albacore are often used.

    Learn to Reel

    Battling a marlin can take upwards of
    45 minutes for most people. The goal is to keep constant pressure on
    the fish.

    One technique beginners should learn
    when fishing for marlin is the “short stroke”. To do this you
    have ro raise your rod around 15 degrees and reel as fast as you can
    for one crank and then lower your tip back down 15 degrees and repeat
    the process again. This will often help you get the last bit of line
    necessary to land your Marlin.
