    Something that can mimic a sardine for the picky bites. When they are in full swing like mike said, they'll bite anything.

    I find that a natural cedar plug works the best but a live sardine is even better.

    I like just use live Bait
    because if you hook one on anything else
    and it comes unbutton, it will come back like a bullet.

    On the Excel they won't let you use lures for Dorado because they don't want the lure flopping around on the deck. They don't call Dorado ball slappers for nothing!
