Steve Campbell has answered practically every question the avid bluewater angler could possibly think to ask him—how, why, where, when, and then some—in his brilliant book, Blue Marlin Magic . Steve is a highly seasoned and skilled sport-fishing captain (from New Zealand) He has spent a lifetime fishing throughout the South Pacific, where he operates Ika Lahi International Gamefishing Lodge in the remote island Kingdom of Tonga.
By far the most complete and authorative book on Blue marlin Fishing, this is a true whopper of a book. Over 1000 Photographs spread over 580 pages, this book and the author explodes the myth of big blue marlin as loners. By towing a fisheye video camera to better understand blue marlin, he discovered their unique “strike-and-flight” feeding behavior. He set the camera to view his lure spread, or zoom in tighter, especially on lure positions that got the highest percentage of strikes.
“I had always been under the impression that blues were pretty much solitary hunters,” writes Campbell. “After all, most of the strikes we were getting were single fish. But the footage showed a very different scenario, backed up by sonar profiling"
Fresh knowledge led Steve to incorporate special designs in his hook rigs. His hook-ups increased immediately; drop-offs declined. These improvements are generously described and boldly illustrated in the pages of Blue Marlin Magic. As a result of these significant changes, during his years of meticulous record keeping, his best year was a remarkable 83 percent hooked-to-boated success rate. Campbell, ever the stalwart conservationist, safely released 96 percent of all these magnificent leaping blue marlin.
More than an elaborate fishing book, Blue Marlin Magic is also a visual feast of the unspoiled ocean environment as seen through the lenses of talented photographers Doug Perrine of Hawaii, Jon Schwartz of California, and Kim Westerkov of New Zealand. Internationally award-winning marine photographer Perrine spent one month in Tonga aboard (and overboard) Campbell’s boat, Reel Addiction, capturing vivid underwater images of blue marlin and other beautiful creatures—whales to sharks to seabirds—of the South Pacific.
