Nine head designs
Joining the JB stable in 1998 the Chopper has earned an enviable reputation as a big Blue Marlin raiser and tournament winner, with more than $600,000.00 worth of trophies in Australia alone! A plunger style lure with a scalloped face the Chopper has a very pronounced and consistent wiggle that Marlin find irresistible. It is also very stable in rough and windy weather. The heaviest marlin ever caught off Wollongong/Kiama, a 338.4kg Blue Marlin on 37kg was taken on a Chopper by ‘Fishaholic’ on 6th April 2009. On March 16th 2013 ‘Anticipation’ fishing the Kiama Canyons hooked a monster 450kg plus Blue Marlin on a Chopper, busting it off after an epic 9hr battle on 37kg standup tackle!.
These lures are custom made for BTS and include an insert made from only first-class shell.
All Chopper lures are perfectly keel weighted and come with attached Crimp Lock.
Works well in any position depending on sea conditions. Try the Chopper on the long corner first.
Available in 9 head colours with superior shell used on the inserts.
