BWF Heavy Tackle Lures

Grander 1238

The “Grander 1238” is a very dynamic lure; when trolled at sufficient speed it dives and surfaces rhythmically while simultaneously breaking left and right – thus imitating a fish fleeing from a predator. The eddy trail and the fizz track generated by this “swimming pattern” are visible for a long distance – in our opinion the perfect marlin lure! We can supply this lure in a choice of six different head-inlays and more than 40 different multi-coloured skirts.

Our Recommendations:

  • Target species: Blue marlin, black marlin and yellowfin tuna
  • Trolling speed: 8 to 12 knots
  • Positioning: Anywhere in the spread but for preference either fished short on a flatline or long as the farthest lure back.
  • Action: dynamic swimming movement
  • Weight (without rigging): 380 grams
  • Head length and diameter: 7.5 cm and 4.9 cm respectively
  • Eye diameter: 3.5 cm
  • Overall length: 40 cm
  • Skirt length: 32.5 cm
  • Recommended leader strength:
    500 to 700 lbs. mono
  • Recommended hook size: 11/0 or 12/0

Big Smoker

The “Big Smoker” generates a mighty trail of bubbles which can be seen for a great distance and dives and surfaces rhythmically when doing so. Thanks to its four symmetrical drill-holes it maintains its stable and straight course even in higher waves – in our opinion the perfect “bad-weather marlin lure”! The head inlays consist of a neutral mother-of-pearl foil and can be combined with any of the 40 different multi-coloured skirts available.

Our Recommendation:

  • Target species: blue marlin, black marlin and yellowfin tuna
  • Trolling speed: 8 to 12 knots
  • Positioning: Anywhere in the spread, for preference on a flatline fished short or via the outriggers.
  • Action: dynamic “swimming movement”
  • Weight (without rigging): 380 grams
  • Head length/diameter: 7.5 cm and 4.9 cm respectively
  • Eye diameter: 3 cm
  • Overall length: 40 cm
  • Skirt length: 32.5 cm
  • Recommended leader strength:
    500 to 700 lbs. mono
  • Recommended hook size: 11/0 or 12/0

  • Target species: Blue marlin, black marlin, big tuna
  • Trolling speed: 8 to 12 knots

Mr. Big

“Mr. Big” is the big brother of our Grander 1238: it dives and surfaces extremely dynamically and rhythmically while also breaking out chaotically to the left and right. Thanks to its wild “swimming behaviour” this lure leaves a very broad eddy trail and a spread of fizzing bubbles visible at a very great distance and deep down. Actually,
“Mr. Big” was designed as a lure only; but when we tested it we found that it is also an excellent teaser (weighing only 690 grams) that demonstrates a gigantic fish-attracting action! We can supply this model with six different head inlays and you can choose from a range of more than 40 multi-coloured skirts …

Our Recommendations:

  • Target species: heavyweight blue and black marlin
  • Trolling speed: 8 to 12 knots
  • Position as a lure: fished either short or directly over short flatlines
  • Position as a teaser: fished short and direct (second wave) or via the lowest outrigger flatline
  • Action: dynamic-chaotic “hunting” behaviour
  • Weight (without rigging): 690 grams
  • Head length/diameter: 14 cm and 6 cm respectively
  • Eye diameter: 4.5 cm
  • Overall length: 53 cm
  • Skirt length: 39 cm
  • Recommended leader strength:
    900 lbs. mono
  • Recommended hook size: 12/0 to 14/0
