The Hawaii Lure Maker's Challenge
PRESENTED BY ALI'I KAI LURES of Kona
The 2020 Lure Maker's Challenge was won by NIGHT RUNNER with ALI'I KAI Lures.
The Hawaii Marlin Tournament Series began from the deck up, way back in 1986. The Hawaii Lure Makers Challenge began as the September Challenge in 2010. This tournament has been designed with input from the top skippers of 2010.
The skippers agreed to raise the Minimum Weight to 400 lbs and increased the First Place Prize to 70% of the Base Purse.
Going forward, we are adding a fun and competitive twist to The Hawaii Lure Makers Challenge - those teams who enter Sponsored by a specific Lure Maker can fish those lures - and - the Highest Placing Team, sponsored by and catching their fish on their Sponsored Lures, will win the Presenting Sponsor position of the Tournament for the following year!
For example, Team ALI'I KAI Lures was the top scoring team sponsored by a Lure Maker, so this year the tournament will be called "The Lure Makers Challenge Presented by ALI'I KAI Lures".
There are lots and lots of Lure Makers out there. Let's see which ones are truly the most productive Big Game Tournament Lures on the water - and give them credit where credit is due!
