Default BB RPP lure

Just a general interest question.Is the Black Bart RPP a popular lure in the USA.I hardly ever see anyone here on the east coast of Australia running one. In the last 3 seasons I've caught more small to mid size marlin(all types) on a blue dot over green RPP(sc&sr) than all my other lures put together.

The RPP Black N Green has in my first season using it here in Kenya raised a lot and hooked a few small Blues and Stripped Marlin on a single hook rig of the Long Rigger.

Don't know about the US but I have had success with the RPP in both Cape Verde and Madeira - I think it was called 'dolphin' but to me looks like the CV flying fish with black, white, blue and green all there. Single hook - long rigger.

TBH if it's getting loads of bites for you, who cares whether it's popular in the USA?? I find the original can be too heavily weighted and skirted for a small vessel, but most Bart buyers probably aren't fishing from small boats. Very good rough conditions lure despite the angled face, the small face and weight enables it to plow through sloppy stuff well.

The day I remember best with this lure was some years back in the deep water zone south of Mindelo on a typically difficult windy sloppy Cape Verde day - two blue marlin 200 and 500 lb blitzing it off the rigger in sensational crash bites. The lure was a good approximation of a Cape Verde black-winged flyer, swimming beautifully in clean water out there, and it seemed as though they were trying to ambush the "flyer" before it could take off in the windy conditions - amazing out of nowhere bites like only a blue marlin can. The hole in the water left by the first fish was wider across than its body length, the one churned up by the second bigger fish more than twice as big. I was lucky enough to see both bites. Perfect bites and perfect hookups, both fish to the boat and released. Nothing out of the ordinary in terms of numbers for there, but a great day's fishing for me.
