The US Department of Homeland Security will not currently permit parcel mail to travel on passenger aircraft and is scanning packages individually on arrival in the US. This is causing delays in postal delivery. To minimise this delay we recommend to all of our US customers that while this situation exists you choose to ship by air courier service at a cost of US$30.

The Mann’s G50+ is the deepest diving lure available. Mann’s claim that at 4 Miles per hour with 200 feet of 80 Pounds test line out it will dive to a depth of 50 feet, even deeper on lighter line or superbraid.
This makes it a useful addition to any offshore arsenal for those days when fish are holding deep. Tuna, wahoo, marlin and sharks will all hit it but the Mustad double hooks supplied as standard aren’t strong enough for tackling the real big guys. Here’s how to rig the Giganticus to tackle anything that swims...
Operating from Puerto Rico on the island of Gran Canaria, the Blue Marlin 3 fishes waters which like Madeira and the Azores, plunge to depths of over 3,000 feet within a few miles of the shore.
A 33 foot Striker sportfisher, built in Spain, she is powered by twin Volvo diesels and has a top speed of over 30 knots. Captain Benito and Mate Hans between them speak English, French, Spanish, German and Dutch.
From November to March, Marlin and Tuna are absent and fishing is mainly for Conger eels, Snapper, Amberjacks and Rays averaging 150 lb. The summer months are spent trolling for Blue and White marlin, Wahoo, Barracuda, Skipjack, Albacore, Yellowfin and Big eye tuna. Giant Bluefin tuna between 500 lb 800 lb are also an occasional catch.
Tag and release is the order of the day although a potential record may be kept. The largest Blue marlin brought aboard so far weighed 1027 lb and the largest Mako 1075 lb (an 80 lb line class world record), so the opportunity is there.
