New not Marlin fishing. I have caught one Marlin, but it was not my setup on the rig. I hooked a Marlin, it cut the leader right under the lure. So I have some questions....what pound leader should I be using? I use 300 right now, but I have lost at least two with this. I am trolling 8 to 12 inch skirts. Penn 80 vsw with 130 pound line. Leader line, for Marlin, steel or mono? It seems in kona, people hook up Marlin all the time, here not so much....any words of wisdom?
Thanks in advance
