An offer to those who HAVE bought or received my "cedar plugs". Email me a photo of you, my cedar plug and the fish you caught with it and I will give you a free plug of your choice, rigged and shipped to your address.

I will do this to the first three people that respond only.


I guess "chunking" and live bait have been the way to catch fish this year. Surprised no one took you up on your offer.

    I am home for a while and ready to make plugs if you are quick. Here are a couple of recent plugs shipped out.

    Where's all the fish caught on these?

    I just returned from Santa Barbara Island on the private boat Bula where the cedar plugs were a hit. We trolled a rapalla, feather and two cedar plugs. The plugs caught 40 yellows mostly released and 30 bonito all released. We finally skipped the feather and rapalla to use the plugs. The kelp was thick and the rapalla snagged it while the plugs rode over it much better. Size did not seem to matter with the 6", 5" and 4" all catching well. Purpleheart yesterday and today was the color. For fun I tried using the cedar plug as a casting jig when another guy as reeling in his fish. Fun to watch them chase the plug.

    Yes they work!

    Yes. I have several bocote wood blanks ready now. My supplier of wood has given me a reduced price on bocote so it is now the same price as purpleheart, bloodwood and padauk.

    I received some very interesting wood from Steve Fukuda with a request to make cedar plugs. I do not know the wood species, but it is both unusual and pretty.

    I CANNOT sell any of these until I find out the name of the wood and see if I can buy some. Plugs from this wood will be expensive as the wood was tough to turn and had wormholes that needed to be filled. If I get some of the wood I will make some for my tackle box.

    Just finishing the sanding of a new customized tackle box; a week of finishing and it will ship out.

    Now might be a good time to order some hardwood plugs.
