Superman Fishing Lure Skirts

In Eric’s recent article about choosing colors and patterns for your fishing lure skirts when warm water sport fishing, he mentioned the ‘Superman’ pattern.

Just a few days ago, after publishing that article, we received two great photos from the guys on The Blue Marlin Sport Fishing in Cabo San Lucas.  These show Superman himself in action (or post action as the case may be.)

Eric mentioned the Mahi loving this pattern, but here’s a nice Pacific sailfish caught on a BFD Big Game Lure wearing the Superman colors.

And here we see a nice BFD Big Game Lure after a voracious Wahoo did a number on the Superman skirt … ouch!

Looks like we’ll have to replenish the Blue Marlin’s supply of BFD Lures when we go down for some marlin fishing this fall!

Choosing the Right Lure and Skirt Colors for Warm Water Sport Fishing

Most experienced fishermen are partial and opinionated when it comes to off-shore lures and skirt combinations, and I don’t pretend to be any different.

But most new fishermen, who don’t have enough experience to form strong opinions yet, are looking for some help and advice for trolling lure and skirt color combinations; I get calls from guys like this every day.  It is with these folks in mind that I set out to write a few articles that can give a little guidance on choosing the right lures and colors when fishing for marlin or tuna.

But catching sport fish isn’t about knowing how to confront them in the span of just a month or two; you need to know their whole cycle.  That’s the only way to truly understand what works throughout various seasons.  Make sure you read this article on the Colors of Spring, and my next about temperature and currents as well.

If you’re trying to arrange a meeting with a monster, you will need to do a little homework.

As with any battle, understanding your opponent is critical; you need to understand the fish itself. Understanding their movements and appetites, along with anticipating their behavior, will allow for greater success.
