These marlin lures are specifically designed to focus on the big girls. You will need minimum 80W to 130W gear in order to get these in the spread. Heavy rigger clips are a must to hold them in place and when a marlin decides to take one of these down, you know she means business. Most of these can and are run as teasers as well. In this case you can pull them off the dredge reels while bait and switching with smaller gear.
