Joining the JB Lures stable in 1998, the Chopper has earned an enviable reputation as a big blue raiser and tournament winner, with more than $600k worth of trophies in Australia alone!
A plunger style lure with a scalloped face, the JB Lures Chopper has a very pronounced and consistent wiggle that most blue marlin find irresistible but it is also very stable in rough and windy weather.
The heaviest marlin ever caught off Wollongong/Kiama, a 338.4kg blue on 37kg was taken on an evil Chopper by Dave Jeffries aboard 'Fishaholic' on 6th April 2009. On March 16th 2013 'Anticipation' fishing the Kiama Canyons hooked a monster 450kg plus blue marlin on a green Chopper, busting it off after an epic 9hr battle on 37kg standup tackle! 3 days later Dave Venn pulled the hooks on a 350kg plus blue then jumped off a 300kg, both taking the green Chopper on the long corner.
