    Cast them out and let them sink for about 30 seconds and then wind in as fast as you can. :D

    The Coltsniper looks like a Daiwa SP minnow clone.

    If it says Shimano on it and it caught a fish it's the hottest lure on the market.

    The BFT and YFT out there right now are feeding on micro anchovies, about 1-1.5" long. Most baits/lures don't replicate that so find one that you're comfortable casting 100'-150' (my preference is the 100gram) in a color that mirrors an anchovy.

    With the foamers right now there is no need to let the lure sink. Cast over/into the boils/jumpers and reel like hell, hook up and hold on. No need to fish light line, 60-80lb minimum, there are 10lb fish mixed in with 100+lb fish.

    Pulled4-5 inch anchovies out of the stomach yesterday, so the bait schools are mixed in size.

    I think one of the responses is talking about the megabait style sniper.

    In regards to the stickbait, I like to work it with a stop and go retrieve. You can use the rod to work it but I prefer the reel. Fast crank or two, pause for a bit, repeat, and mix it up with a series of more cranks every now and then. Also don’t overlook the orca floating stickbait... it doesn’t get much love but has produced much much better for me than poppers and and like on local bluefin and yellowfin. Work it the same way as the suspending stickbait described above.

    The OP is in Orlando. I don't think he's fishing for SoCal BFT.

    When they are in the mood to eat anything, even a pooper works!

    Catching wahoo, yt and tuna on a stick bait is awesome..... Seeing a wahoo blow up on it and jumping clear out of the water with the stick bait in his jaws, that''s radical and so much fun.

    I have had good success with cabrilla, pargo and sierra fishing near rocks. Love the fact that they float and with a bit of work they float up from rocks when stuck! Grateful not so much luck on the pooper!

    Hooks need to be changed out for the bigger BFT that have been eating them?

    What type/size hook would be good to swap out the treble hook with? Siwash?
