Pelagic Magic Spreader Bars? - the key to attracting large tuna and marlin ? larger baits!
by Captain Mike Fisher

When large pelagic fish feed, it?s a sight that makes any fisherman?s heart pound like a drum. Tuna-busting bait balls are like ill mannered rowdies at a church social; striped marlin selectively circling beneath their next meal; the blue marlin?s unexpected crashing of the bait; it?s all an adrenalin rush. One thing most observers find is that the big girls and boys will attack a smaller group of baits separated from a larger group before attacking a huge bait ball. Opinion is that the huge bait ball is so confusing it appears impenetrable. This is why spreader bars can out perform single lures; they meet the fish?s needs. Those smaller groups of impersonating plastic baits appear more manageable, vulnerable, attainable, and immediately stimulate that most basic need-to eat.

Fish Magician Tackle?s Pelagic Magic series light weight nylon spreader bars are designed to create the illusion of a food source. They are designed for the perceptive angler who requires larger bars and baits for the chase. The Pelagic Magic Series comes in three bar sizes, 30, 36 and 48 inch lengths, and are pulling 8 to 15 baits, 7 to 8 1/2 inches. Designed to be pulled from the outriggers at speeds from 4 to 9 knots, the baits create the commotion of bait fish or squid that have been pushed to the surface. That commotion is the illusion of the vulnerable bait schools, that commotion is the music of the Pelagic Magic Series.

We constructed the Pelagic Magic Series following the same exacting attention to detail in their assembly as that given to the Bait Ball Series. High quality light weight nylon, main line made of 300# Jinkai mono, 300 # Sampo ball bearing snap and swivel.

Pelagic Magic Spreader Bars? are built to meet the extreme stress that big game fishing put on gear. Pelagic Magic series bars pull 7-Strand hollow squids in six fish-attracting colors. Did you know that the bleeding mackerel pattern is the one color combo most often hit by the striped marlin, and among the most often hit is the Mean Joe Green combination of black and green. The colors wouldn?t be complete without black and purple, pro dolphin, and rainbow runner that are also known as the carrot top.

Chase/stinger baits are sold separately, allowing the angler the flexibility needed to keep up with changing light, bait and water conditions. You can mix bar and chase/bait colors, that?s a money saving advantage. They?re weighted to stay in the water; you don?t want them pushed aside by the water pressure being pushed by a large fish. The chaff gear wasn?t spared; both ends have springs and poly chaff gear. It?s going stay together.

Indeed, but at the same time they are working as great attractors, I'm convinced of this, and that without them we are potentially reducing our 'attraction' to the Albi's down at 70 feet.

Dunno this is my theory, Mike you two cents?
