    Capt. Chuck Wilson and mate Linda Wilson landed this 978.5 lb Blue yesterday, 3/28/2011 on the 'Lucky Linda' a new prototype creation that Bomboy had given them to try. Fight time was 3 hours 5 minutes. The lure color was blue silver with a solid pink inner skirt.

    Based on these results, the Lucky Linda should be going into production real soon!

    Lucky Linda head is shown with the Mini-G head for comparison.

    Oh so close she probably just dropped her eggs. Congratulations, we all know they only get bigger in Kona. Tightlines, Deliman.

    It looks like the R & D portion is done!!! Beautiful lure from a master lure maker, probably one of the best. After a couple more fish like this the "prototype" label can be removed. Thanks for sharing.

    Here is the back story on the lure design.

    This was a favorite lure of Linda's and she had only one left and could not get anymore of them. Bomboy looked at the lure and said he could make her one like it. He did, and just a few days later, this fish is the result.

    KIWI808, that lure is a Mini-G and it looks great with the Ono customization!

    Here is the picture of the Lucky Linda lure that got the job done. Bomboy is sending me a few of these new lure heads. If you want one, just let me know..........................

    It will be interesting to see how this design works in Baja. Need to follow-up this catch with others before it replaces the Mini-G as the hot, new, lure on the block.

    I got a feeling the Fire Hat will be finding room in the spread for the Lucky Linda.

    I know a guy. :)

    You can get the Mini-G from me. I am Bomboy's rep and my website www.marlination.com is the best place to look for this and other Bomboy lures.

    Sent you a PM.
