    Hi everyone,

    I've seen many posts suggesting that one drop down to 30 lb line with 27 lb wire leaders when the wahoo fishing is slow, the theory, with which I agree, being that it's better to get bit and lose the fish than to never get bit at all. All that said, I don't see how it is possible to get decent hook penetration with big single hooks and only 6-8 lbs of drag. Are people dropping down in hook size or are there smaller jigs that are preferred when fishing lighter lines?

    Inquiring minds want to know.

    They are referring to fishing bait with 27# wire and 30# line not lures.......

    Well that explains why I was as confused as hell. Thanks for the clarification.
