Blue Marlin World Cup Fishing Tips

  • Check the Buoyweather.com for 7 day wind and swell forecasts. This will give you a good idea of what conditions to expect and where to fish during the tournament.

  • Blue Marlin can often be found feeding close to the surface in water temperatures between 72 and 86 degrees Fahrenheit. Check SST and Altimetry charts to find temperature breaks within the tournament boundary. Current breaks hold bait and serve as natural migratory pathways for bait and the Pelagics that feed on them

  • Lure fishing, as well as teaser/dropback fishing are both methods that have been used successfully to win the Blue Marlin World Cup.

  • Bermuda, Madeira, Kona and Cape Verde consistently produce 500+ pound Blue Marlin during the Blue Marlin World Cup.
