Ever since Card’s son Lan was able to climb into the boat, he has helped on the deck and has become a very skilled mate. The two of them are a formidable team, winning many tournaments in the Triple Crown as well as catching the biggest marlin in the history of the popular Blue Marlin World Cup, a massive 1,195-pounder. Their spread to attract these big blues includes only four armed lures and two giant teasers. I’ve never seen teasers so big, but when you think about these giant blues, capable of devouring a 100-pound tuna like a jelly bean, 3-foot teasers certainly look like fair game. These giants turn up here because the shallow outer reef drops away quickly into the deep Atlantic and then rises again only 10 miles to the southwest of the island. Two massive banks each spread out over 20 square miles and are only a few miles apart, attracting bait, big tuna and wahoo, which in turn attract the giant blues.
