This stunning photo of a juvenile black marlin which was tagged and released was sent in by Leigh Holtsbaum. He was fishing off the Gold Coast, QLD with Black Magic 100lb Tough Trace and the Black Magic Equalizer Gimbal and Harness.
Leigh says, “We always run Black Magic Tough Trace on our lures and Fluorocarbon on our live bait rigs for marlin. You would be surprised at the size of the blacks we have caught that don’t chaff through 60lb or 80lb Black Magic Leader. A 250kg beast is the biggest on our light tackle. We also always use the Black Magic Equalizer. It’s a must for stand up game fishing. ”
Thanks for your great photo and feedback Leigh.
