The Black Magic Freedom Grand Slammer lure has come up trumps again, claiming its second “grander”. Kim Prater, fighting in a Black Magic Equalizer gimbal and harness, landed this monster marlin off the coast of Fiji. Kim recalls her catch. “All I can see/hear is the line being taken out. A LOT of line being taken out! It was heading straight down. It didn’t start jumping till an hour 20 in. It wasn’t until we saw the scales exceed 400+kgs at weigh in later on, that we realized just how big it was…a massive 496.2kgs (9 times my weight)!!! I seriously wasn’t expecting my first marlin to be a ‘grander’!!!"
"This was done standup on 24kg tackle, with a 2 hour fight time. I could not have done this standup without the Black Magic Equalizer belt and a highly experienced crew. The belt is AWESOME!!! I can’t rate it high enough (and no, I didn’t get paid to say that!).”
