Lure Maker's Bio: Captain Cyrus Widhalm most notable accomplishment to date is being the 2023 World Cup Winner & Big Blue Challenge winner which was caught on his Kraken Banshee 14" Slant. He grow up in Kona and learned sport fishing from legendary captains. After working as a deck hand, then captain he now owns his own sport fishing company, Kraken Fish Co and runs 2 boats the Kraken and the Apex.
On July 4th, 2023 the crew of the Apex brought the World Cup back to Kona with the 834.5 pound marlin. The entire spread was Kraken Lures, and it only took them 11 minutes from the start of the tournament to hook up.
Six years ago Cpt Cyrus started making lures for his own personal use with advice from Kona’s top lure makers. They produced so well he now only runs his own lures.
Big Game Lures Hawaii is proud to have been the first retailer that carried Kraken Lures 5 years ago. We are excited to have this proven batch, all the lures and a few more, that were in his spread when the winning marlin for the The Blue Marlin World Cup, Big Blue Challenge and a local Kona tournament was landed.
