Some people have asked about these "secret big-eye lures". What they really are are lures we had made last year and used all season without mentioning them as we were field testing them. We caught 7 blue marlin on them last year and most of our big-eyes - thus "big-eye" lure.
This year the only big-eye and the only blue marlin we caught were caught on this lure. Below is a picture of it in the medium size head in rainbow. We have 3 sizes and 4 colors. We sold then so far only at our Seminars as a thank you to those who attended and now I'm allowing them to be sold to anyone but have not put them on our sales website as we only have a few left in stock. 150 more on order.
