I have a variety of jigs including blue and chrome Toro Tamer Slash 400 g, a couple of 300g williamson rotating flutter jigs silver/pale green 300g, Shimano butterfly jig blu/orange 200g, and some smaller mega jigs blue and silver. Anyone used these with any success early on here in 2020. Will be fishing the Vagabond July 8 4 day. Thanks a bunch!

Out of all of those I would pick the one you have the most confidence in and fish it hard, fish every cast like it was last cast and you will probably catch something. All of those will work just fine in different situations.

    whichever has the longest bunk
    On a 4-day you will have many, many hours at the rail. Have one rig ready to go for fishing a sardine, either flyline if they are crashing the chum or a rubber-band torpedo ready to add to get down deep. And have another rig ready with a lure. Change it up, try different things. If everyone else is fishing a bait, think about how you can give the fish a choice, and do it.

    You will have a great time! I'm looking forward to reading your trip report.

    I don't know any of those jigs, but do know that I never leave home without a blue and chrome Tady 9. My favorite way to fish it is to cast and let sink to 45 degree angle and retireve, but also good for yoyo in light current or shallower water, even can work as a surface iron. Purple or green and chrome are also good.

    The Vagabond is a quality boat and Mike Lackey is considered a bluefin whisperer.

    I’ve been a REALLY big fan of the Daiwa SK jigs the past couple of years. Hooked and landed many a big bluefin, yellowfin, yellowtail, pargo, snapper... probably pulled more flatfalls out of fishes mouths the past few years than anything else but if that’s what most people are fishing that’s what most people hook up with.

    For the bluefin, my best jig has been the flat fall. For yellowtail, my go-to jig is a blue/white salas 6x & 6xjr. On the same trip. hope it's a good one.
