BLUE MARLIN TROLLING LURES
Whether you're new to offshore fishing or a seasoned Capt with years of experience, the power and excitement of a Blue Marlin lure bite is sure to get your heart pumping. We started building Marlin lures in our garage over 15 years ago, and we've picked some of our top producing Blue Marlin lures and products to help you land the fish of a lifetime.
Here at Fathom Offshore, we started our business building the highest quality American hand-made trolling lures on the market. Today, we still make our resin trolling lures here in North Carolina by hand from start to finish, one at a time.
All of our Blue Marlin fishing tackle products are rigged in house, to strict tournament quality standards. From burnt leader ends, premium mono leader, stainless components and proper chafe gear, you can rest assured that every Marlin lure that leaves our building is of the absolute highest quality.
Two different subspecies of blue marlin are known to exist: the Pacific and Atlantic blue marlin. They readily consume a wide variety of prey items, mostly consisting of small tunas and deepwater squid. Regardless of the subspecies of Marlin you're targeting, Fathom Offshore offers a variety of tackle products to help target these open ocean feeders.
As always, if we can help answer any questions to help you and your boat get Blue Marlin ready, please feel free to call 910-399-6882 and we are happy to help.

3. Squid Teaser Chains
By far the most popular squid chain colors over the last 10 years; the pink and green squid teaser chain has been a staple on the riggers of tournament and Blue Marlin boats world wide.
Whether you’re targeting Blue Marlin or looking to draw other pelagics into the spread, you can’t go wrong with an SR Squid Chain. PRO TIP: Add your favorite lure, bait, or flap behind the chain by simply attaching it to the snap swivel concealed in the last squid.
This set includes two SR40 12" squid chains (1 - Pink with Red fleck, 1 - Green with Green fleck) rigged on 10' of 250# mono and 2 chain storage bags..
4. Mo' Head Medium TROLLING LURE
The Mo' Head Medium trolling lure has been racking up Blue Marlin releases for over 10 years.
This is the largest of all of our medium lures, the Mo Head is the perfect size for everything from Bull dolphin to Marlin big and small.
The large concave face grabs air then releases it in a long attention grabbing bubble trail. This face shape is so productive we make it in 5 other sizes, everything from Extra Small to a 2XL Heavy Tackle Teaser.

5. DOUBLE O EXTRA LARGE
The Double O extra Large is the largest in the offering of our bullet head trolling lures.
Often we find good success running bullet shaped lures in the shotgun or bridge pole location in our Blue Marlin spread. This straight running shape at normal lure speeds is an easy target for Marlin that may be more weary. We often put the Double O back there as an insurance policy of sorts if we happen to run over a fish that may not be aggressive enough or somewhat boat shy.
