    I rigged mine on 3’ of 400# cable. Didn’t want to take any chances so I used 2 crimps with chafing spring to a swivel at the top and 2 crimps to a graumet for my Intruder.

    For the price they charge, I would use 600# cable. LOL.

    I think either 275lb or 400lb cable would be a good choice. I'll probably use 400lb to be "safe." When I get mine, I want there to be a solid ring brazed/welded to the "U" coming out of the top of the lure. If I recall correctly, at least some of the Intruders sold at the Long Beach Fred Hall Show were already ringed, maybe all of them...? I definitely want that.

    I'll make my leader about 3' long, with a tightly cinched Flemish Eye on each end, one through the ring at the lure end, and one to a heavy duty swivel to connect to the main line. Depending on the size of the crimp, I will use one or two at each end. For that, I'll probably ask someone like John at Trophy Tackle (JohnTFT) or Basil at BHP Tackle (ifish42na) for advice.

    The one thing that I strongly believe, having fished the new Intruder, is that it's very unlikely that the harness will have a negative effect on how the lure swims. You don't have to thread the needle with the rigging. Your Intruder will swim correctly and catch fish, unless there is something really out of whack.

    Go SquidCo, they do it RIGHT!

    They rigged them with coated multi strand wire. Hoo teeth abraded the coating slightly, but didn't damage the cable at all! (Was NOT pricey either !) Those low quality, high cost pre-packaged "bridles" have failed at the crimp / fittings. (VERY ugly to lose a quality lure to a 5 cent crimp. It's CHEAP INSURANCE IMHO.

    What do you feel is the advantage of coated wire? IMO it is one more thing a wahoo can hang up in its teeth and I don't feel the plastic coating adds any protection...and once the coating is abraded the leader is trashed and a new one is necessary..... I run mine with about 3' of 275# dark brown muti-strand cable....have not lost it yet 20 wahoo later......

    I've wired them the exact same way all my life. I've never lost a wahoo on the troll because of bad rigging. You'll lose far more to burn offs. The other thing that can happen is if it's a really good bite you might have one bite the swivel and bite you off.

    My hand dexterity is shot so I have the boys on the Rooster wire all mine on my first trip of the year. They take care of all of them in one tenth of the time it takes me.

    Thread got away from us, but one of our favorite things about out favorite boat is the knowledgeable crew members who can usually figure this stuff out. Jake on Excel rigged a Marauder for me a little over six years ago, Austin on the Angler did the same for me in November with my MadScad. Quality stuff.

    Asking about how to topshot some reels for a Lower Banks trip back in 2007, one of the guys on the Angler told me to just bring my reels full of Spectra and my fluorocarbon and he would take care of me. He said “Just don’t miss the boat, we’ll take care of the rest!” :)

    Dear David,

    You have me at a distinct disadvantage, as you've likely got 200+ SDLR trips to my 15:imdumb:.

    I lost a Tony the Tiger JRI on my first troll rotation in 2017, to that five cent crimp on a prepackaged bridle. It was purchased from a well-known SD shop. I resolved to go with an expert rigger. They offered braided wire, both coated (in black or clear) and uncoated. My thought was to eliminate any shine / flash in the water ahead of the Intruder... Both the pink and Dorado Intruders got 4 Wahoo each, on the coated wire with no resulting kinks in the leaders. I do very much take your point on the coated wire, which was the 275 brown multi-strand (with the coating). I suppose the brown braided is sufficient.

    Thanks for your always knowledgeable input, Fishy!

    I run mine the same when in long range ... eff taking chances with this bait ... i fish heavier than everyone else to try to even avoid a possible saw off in the even multiple bites occur .

    For those headed to DATD’s, stop by the Blue Pacific Tackle Booth. There willl be Intruders for sale. These are painted eggplant from the original paint formula. I’ve finally located the tints and base and they look killer!!

    Also, the folks at Blue Pacific have gone CRAZY!

    They will be raffling one Intruder per hour during the show and the grand prize at the end of the show will be an OG Intruder from 20 years ago (the pink one)

    Go to the blue pacific tackle IG or FB page for details on the raffle.

    They will also have some deals on product as well.
