Our fishing grounds typically attract numbers of small black marlin and sail fish. The bait in these areas are pilchards and yakka.
- Would the Scent Blazer be good in this situation?
Do the Scent Blazer attract a lot of other species with teeth that may become a pest through the day especially in a tournament?
I kind of need to know the average size of the target fish, so that I have an idea what size lures you need. But yes I think the Scentblazer Lures are the best on the market for these fish. It is the only lure I run on my boat. The head styles I like are the bullet heads and the slant heads for Marlin and Sails. I have caught both Marlin and Sails on all styles of Scent Blazer heads but these are my favorite. As far as colors I would try to match the bait fish to the color selection. For the Yakka I think that the Yellow Scad or the Sardine, but my favorite is the Purple Frigate. Colors for the Pilchard I think that the Skipjack Tuna, the Sardine, the Evil, Pink Mackerel and the Green Mackerel would be great. As far as the pesty fish, I dont usually have any problems but that might change depending on what waters you are fishing.
