Captain Paco Vela
Supplies Needed: Mudflap teaser
Here is a new idea sent to us by Captain Paco Vela from San Juan, Puerto Rica.
Captain Paco says “I’ve been a captain for more than 30 years targeting mostly blue marlin and pulling every kind of bait there is. I don’t think anyone can deny that there is a big difference on the aggressiveness of the fish when you put a mackerel on a lure! I have always thought that it’s due to the tail. The body of the mackerel is inside the lure.” As you can see from the photos Captain Paco has designed some tails to be attached to a teaser. He also says the down side for this teaser is that the fish can rip your bait away. It’s a new idea which Captain Paco says has been working wonders. Maybe next time you have a mudflap teaser past its prime, cut a tail out of it and try on a teaser.
