Marlin Fishing Tips by Brady Bunte

Anglers are usually easygoing. They have to be, given the amount of time they need to patiently while away as they wait for the fish to take the bait. Despite their calm attitude however, all anglers have one secret yearning, to score the biggest catch of the day, and it does not come any bigger than the marlin. There are several highly prestigious sports fishing competitions that take place around the world, where anglers battle it out for days in an attempt to reel in one of the world’s most challenging fishing catches.

As the first million-dollar prize winner of the 2003 Bisbee Black and Blue tournament in Mexico, Brady Bunte can attest to how tough marlin are to snare, even when you have the best boat and latest fishing equipment. Here, Brady Bunte offers a few tips to less experienced anglers also looking to score that prize catch.

Organization of your gear is important when you are fishing. Brady Bunte notes that many who switch from inland to offshore fishing find crimping a better alternative to using knots when securing heavy monofilament lines. There are different sizes of sleeves to go with the monofilament, so it pays to have a labeled system that allows you to quickly pick out the correct size. Some anglers make use of old pill bottles labeled at the top to quickly pick out what they need.

Many anglers like Brady Bunte who enter sport-fishing events, will hire or buy high-end boats to take them out. These kinds of boats are typically well maintained, and part of the value comes from the quality but delicate surfaces that are found throughout. When you have equipment like pliers you use for crimping, you need to ensure they will not scratch these surfaces. A simple trick is to sheath them in an oven mitt before setting them down.

When setting lures, Brady Bunte recommends putting out a selection of sizes. Have extra large and large lures closer to the boat, and smaller lures further beyond. This is because when you are fishing for marlin in productive waters, you may not always find them hungry. Small bait may be pursued by the fish as a snack, so mix it up for maximum potential.

For those who like to sharpen their hooks a bit more, it is a good idea to use a black sharpie to coat this and the rest of the hook. Not only does it camouflage the hook underwater, Brady Bunte has found it is useful in providing a barrier that prevents rust from developing.

Live bait is usually less popular in offshore fishing because their use limits the speeds at which the boat can travel, but in some cases and areas live bait has been proven to produce better results of a larger catch. Brady Bunte has however noticed that anglers can still score a prize catch if they situate themselves in calm waters teeming with marlin. This is where local knowledge comes in handy in identifying hot spots.

Brady Bunte has observed that there are very many pointy objects to be found on board a fishing boat. From stick gaffs to billfish tags, it can be very easy to find yourself on the wrong end of a sharp tip. A simple trick many apply is using a tennis ball to secure the sharp end. Cut a slit long enough to allow the tip easily through when you squeeze the ball without pulling out a tag.

In fishing, it pays to understand the mentality of your prey. For instance, Brady Bunte has found that striped marlin tend to be far more easily annoyed than their larger blue marlin cousins. This weakness can be used against them. He has found that using bait without hooks allows the angler to pull out the bait from the mouth of the marlin. Many will keep following this elusive bait, while getting angrier at each successive failed attempt. When it is has thrashed about, frustrated and exhausted, you can then hook it and look forward to quick reel in.

Agave Nectar Makes For A Healthy Choice By Brady Bunte

Agave Nectar by Brady Bunte.jpg

High blood sugar levels have been linked to many health problems including increased risk for diabetes and heart disease. It has also been found that high blood sugar tends to go hand in hand with high cholesterol.  It is for this reason that more consumers are paying more attention to the nutritional content of the foods they are putting into their bodies.

Tequila maker Brady Bunte has found that in recent years there has been a steady increase in demand for agave nectar. Agave is the plant that is the primary raw material in the making of the tequila. Brady Bunte has realized this demand has been boosted by health experts, who have suggested that agave nectar is a healthier alternative when compared to products like sugar and artificial sweeteners.

According to Brady Bunte, agave nectar is taken from the flower shoots that sprout from the tall stem that grows when the plant is maturing and ready to be harvested for tequila making. There are several factors that back the advocacy of the use of agave nectar as a sweetener.

Historical use

The agave plant has long been a sacred plant to the Aztecs within the Mexican region. They have been using it for centuries not just to make the fermented beverage that inspired today’s tequila, but also as a medicine. The nectar used to be mixed with salt and applied as a dressing to wounds and skin ailments. This traditional remedy is actually still in use today. Brady Bunte has found that researchers believe its effectiveness in treating wounds comes from the presence of pus producing bacteria, anti inflammatory and antimicrobial properties.  
The Aztecs were also the first to realize the sweetness that could be harvested from the plant when they took to burning the fields of agave and realizing the sweet result that was realized from the remaining cooked heart.

Low glycemic profile

Refined sugar has been the default choice when it comes to sweetening everything from tea to pastries. It has however been found to add no nutritional value to diets and causes a sharp rise in blood sugar levels. When agave nectar is however used in its place, Brady Bunte has found that studies report it has a lower glycemic index, meaning better regulation of blood sugar levels. In fact, when compared to other sweeteners like corn syrup, glucose tablets, maltodextrin and honey, agave nectar still manages to produce the lowest glycemic value.

This is great news for diabetics who can enjoy more sweetener in their diet, without having to worry it will trigger a need for an insulin shot.

Weight loss

When a person is able to better control blood sugar levels, they are also better able to avoid situations that encourage binge eating. When we have low blood sugar, there is a strong desire to eat or drink in order to regain equilibrium. This often results in overindulgence in food.  

Controlled blood sugar helps to avoid these risky highs and lows. Studies looked into by Brady Bunte also indicate the presence of a special fiber known as Inulin that researchers claim helps to suppress appetite.  Brady Bunte has also found studies that indicate Inulin also reduces cholesterol levels and boosts the body’s ability to absorb nutrients such as calcium and magnesium.

Brady Bunte however advises that agave nectar should be moderately used in diets. Just as with any good thing, some consumers may be tempted to go overboard in its use, leading to the kind of overindulgence that cancels out its existing benefits. While it does have a better glycemic profile than other sweeteners, it does still possess calories, sugar content and is relatively new to the market.  Brady Bunte also recommends making use of organic varieties as more suppliers enter into the market.
