Wish for Fish

Bookmark and Share

Nothing tastes as good as a fish you’ve caught yourself. Trouble is, fishing from a sailboat can be a hit-or-miss affair—in my case, usually miss. Lure maker Darrell Primrose says that’s because sailboats typically don’t go fast enough to make big lures work properly. He reckons his $59 Sailboaters Combo Rig, which includes some handy hints on techniques along with a “Teaser Bird” lure intended to be irresistible to fish at slow speed, will fill your freezer in no time. We’re talking tuna, wahoo, and other big critters here. Note the lack of rod and reel—that’s because you don’t need them, according to Darrell. Ballyhood Lures, 714-545-0196, www.ballyhood.com
