Never a truer word spoken, don't ask me why I agree with this Wink

"But as we all know, a lot can change over just a few days, let alone in the weeks and months that pass between most recreational trips. The end result is often a large fuel bill and no bites!" 

Was more like 100 hours for me last season. In most cases it was a case of going north when I should have headed south or vice versa.

Yep not a lot to disagree with. Great article. Interesting saying a firm 1/3 drag and supoposedly light gauge hooks are ok . Guess will find out this year for sure as pretty much what we are planning interesting too about the freer swinging rear hook... had already gleaned that from one of his rigging videos but good explanation here as to why.

I been running my light gauge at just enough drag to stop line peeling of spool at 8 knots.then when we get a bite and once gear cleared and rod in the belt push drag forward to 5kg fight drag.have had to use much more than that on the odd fish that's gone deep and have never snapped a hook.

Is this advice true for our striped marlin, rather than the predominate blue marlin?
Good reading and nothing complicated about it.

the only thing we changed from fishing in nz for striped marlin to fishing in kona for blue marlin is we went from 7 knots to 8knots and put a bigger teaser out and bigger lures on the short positions all the same stuff bonze taught me over here worked over there

bonze has too vids on youtube for rigging light gage hooks worth watching as you can pause and follow as he does it best way to learn in your own house in your own time.For day to day use we wash them with fresh water then dry them then check zinc anode and add more on if old one is almost gone we have been getting 4 or5 days fishing with a rig with this method
