There are two types of destinations that Marlin U visits: big-fish spots, known for size but not numbers, and great-bite spots, known for the good numbers of bites you can get in a day. Guatemala, Costa Rica and Venezuela are examples of the big-bite places, where we can sometimes get 20 bites or more a day. Bermuda, Madeira and Kona, Hawaii, are more about big blue marlin, where if we get one bite a day, we are doing great. So pick your destinations accordingly. If you’ve already caught a bunch of sails or small marlin and want to improve your heavy tackle techniques, then Australia, Bermuda or the Canary Islands would make the best spots for you. If you haven’t done much billfishing and want a lot of practice shots with the lever-drag reel, then Costa Rica, Guatemala or the Dominican Republic might be better matches.
