The jig has to catch the fisherman before you can catch the fish....
Looks like it might have...
It belongs in here. Anybody can make a mistake. In my case x2.
Actually, It is my Number 1 trolling lure.
I have caught more wahoo off that Stupid looking lure than any other including the Intruder,cowbell or any other marauder. two colors- Green and Halloween (sounds familiar?)
Now you may get some funny looks , but here is the key...
1- Notice the 300lb fluoro leader instead of wire (never lost one this way)
2- Has to be trolled a little farther back than usual marauder. If there are 4 or 5 spots you will need one of the middle ones to go longer.
3- They could break if the crew slams down the wahoo on deck and the lure crashes on the deck. (broke 3 this way)
I know Dave throws them down the toilet bowl and the creator is a "unique" individual, but they work and better than most.
Dave give them to me instead of flushing them
Andre I would in a heartbeat but got rid of them long ago. You are the only guy I’ve ever heard of that has had success with them. Good info on the rigging. Going to try it in January.
That 300lb fluoro leader works great in a pick bite but I wouldn't try it with anything pricey.. which is most of the Wahoo lures out there. It would be scary with an Intruder. Good luck in January!

Cheapest wahoo lure out there. 10 for a buck when on sale.

I learned a hell of a lot from Rubberhook2 on that trip...Tim knows wahoo
Cornback trout pattern?
I always thought that was a hooker intruder.
How did I know that pic was coming out?
Nice wife beater too. Lol
But you have not been cut off yet, right Andre... I have been cut off using 400# 49 strand wire and so far the 330# fluorocarbon leader still works on my bonita and marauders.
No cutoffs as of yet on the fluoro. I have only been trying this out for 2 years on and off at times. I think it gets bit better than wire in scratchy bites. I have not used it on the intruder or any lure over $50.
Not a large enough sample size..
But have caught 10 or so fish without the wire and only had to change leaders once
You know the say "never leave home without it?" Well, I never home with it.
I am shocked to hear somebody has one that :
A) Has actually caught a wahoo,
B) Didn't fall apart.
DH515 has it right, put those POS in the toilet bowl.
I co-charter mastered with Larry Brown on the RR3, he trolled those things every turn. He got bites, the lures didn't survive on one bite.
I'll be trolling the twins
, you guys are funny.
Just because the consensus doesn't like The maker of the Lure-Brad of High Tide sportfishing(who surely is a different dude), doesnt mean that the lure blows.
I am not exxagerating when I say that I use it first on the troll regardless. I use it before my original intruder, before my ballyhood cowbell, or Yozuri maruaders.
I think Wahoo will eat anything, which has been shown already with the assortment off oddities posted on this forum- especially in a good bite.
But typically its a Pick bite- especially at HB or Clarion or at the Ridge.
Yes its not going to last long. It cost like 25-$30 each. I have never had one break from the fish , just when it hits the deck and the wahoo smashing all over the place. and the bat comes out.
I think sometimes the crew hits the lure with the bat because they first told me it would never catch anything , and of course upon uttering those magic words, it gets hit first. . So they put it out of its misery.
You just have to troll it back farther. Not cedar plug far, just farther than typical maurauder on the corner.
Cmon Donna , I know you have some Brad stories
As Tim pointed out, they will eat corn on the cob. They cost much less
2 More Weeks, Bro!
Hopefully I Wont be In Your troll Rotation.....
