BWF Light Tackle Lures

Magic Star

The Magic star can also be combined with a (dead) baitfish or parts of it. It has also been very successful when combined with a suitable fish imitation made of soft plastic! Thanks to its four drill-holes in the head it leaves a long trail of bubbles visible from a distance. In our opinion this is a very good sailfish and by-catch combo lure! The head inlays are made of a neutral mother-of-pearl foil and they can be combined with any of the 40 different multi-coloured skirts available.

Our Recommendations:

  • Target species: Sailfish, spearfish, white marlin, tuna, wahoo and dorado
  • Trolling speed when used as a combo lure: 5 to 8 knots
  • Positioning: preferably via the out and middle riggers or fished long as the rearmost lure
  • Action: dynamic-chaotic „fleeing movement“ plus a fizzing bubble trail
  • Weight (without rigging): 35 grams
  • Head length/diameter: 3 cm and 2.8 cm respectively
  • Eye diameter: 1.5 cm
  • Overall length: 15 cm
  • Skirt length: 12 cm
  • Recommended leader strength:
    150 to 250 lbs. mono
  • Recommended hook size: 7/0 to 9/0

Magic Candy

The “Magic (Tuna) Candy” also works very well as a combo lure together with a (dead) baitfish or parts of it. Its two lateral drill-holes in the head make this lure very stable in the water and generate a trail of bubbles. When fishing for tuna, this lure has proved to be successful on several occasions when tested in combination with a soft plastic fish imitation or the like. In our opinion this is a (new) alternative to trolled natural baits when fishing for tuna (with suitable rigging). The head inlays are made of a neutral mother-of-pearl foil and they can be combined with any of the 40 different multi-coloured skirts available.

Our Recommendations:

  • Target species: Tuna, sailfish, striped marlin, white marlin, wahoo and dorado
  • Trolling speed when fished as a combo lure: 5 to 7 knots
  • Positioning: at the rearmost position in the spread when fishing for tuna
  • Action: fleeing prey fish
  • Weight (without rigging): 38 grams
  • Head length/diameter: 4 cm and 2.3 cm respectively
  • Eye diameter: 1.3 cm
  • Overall length: 17 cm
  • Skirt length: 13 cm
  • Recommended leader strength:
    150 to 250 lbs. mono
  • Recommended hook size: 7/0 to 9/0

BWF Special Combo Lure

We can also offer you our “Magic Candy” and “Magic Star” products as BWF Special Combo Lures with off-the-shelf ballyhoo imitations made of soft plastic.

You can also target sailfish with them using drop-back strike tactics and circle hooks.

Our Recommendation:

  • Target species: Tuna, sailfish, striped marlin, white marlin and dorado
  • Trolling speed: 5 to 7 knots
  • Positioning: at the furthest point out in the spread when fishing for tuna; via the out and middle riggers when targeting sailfish
