The Marlin Magic Ruckus is perhaps their most famous Marlin lure. This is the XXL 18" size. Has 18" sized skirt saddles with a fairly steady taper towards the slanted nose. The reputation of the lure can be derived from its name alone - it creates a "ruckus" in the water that stir up fish like crazy while staying mostly at the surface. It has an aggressive surface action, providing a ton of smoke trailing the lure. While you can get this lure to run in rougher waters, we do not necessarily recommend this lure for the roughest of sea conditions but more in calm to moderately rough conditions.

Captain Marlin Parker himself has won more tournaments on this lure than any other lure in his arsenal including the 2002 World Cup and the 2004 Bisbees. Can be ran in any trolling position with success, but we personally run the 18" size on the short corner position (Large Size Long Corner, 12" Size Short Rigger). Ranked by Marlin Magazine in 2016 as the #7 offshore lure of all time.

This particular head has gorgeous bright blue Mother of Pearl shell along the sides of the insert with a rainbow-iridescent wrapped top and bottom of the insert and a black back with a set of new Taxidermy eyes.
