You’re gonna wear out that picture and the bombs.

just wanted to make sure the people who were asking what color got it!, YES! I would love to hear from people who were successful with say a PL68 or that type of jigs fished them,

Jimmy’s bombs are pretty popular! Jigs? Too many choices. I was just looking at a bag with 24, yes two dozen Wahoo jigs!

Salas, Catchy Tackle and Raiders are the ones I use the most.

I was out in the garage looking over the collection of 6X Jr jigs along with the others. I’ll go snap a pic, Pink and Tony the Tiger have the highest number of teeth marks.

Just got back from a 7 day. 11 Wahoo on the first 2. Middle one being my go to one. 130 LB. Fluro.
Soda Pop do you remember, if it was a overcast day or really sunny when you used the middle one? fresh water fishermen will use darker lures on overcast days and bright lures on sunny days, just wondering if the same applies to SW, gonna have to pay better attention.

I agree speed matters more than color. Once my bombs mylar comes off completely I switch bombs out to a different color but I always start off with a Halloween colored one!!

That pink and black captain Jimmy's bomb can be a killer too! I always keep at least 5 of them, but I'm a sick fuck, who has 2 pelagic duffel bags full of over 100 pounds of bombs, jigs, trolling lures, titanium wire, and everything else under the sun to kill wahoo! Those wucking Fahoo drive me insane! I want to catch every one of those bastards! I have 7 dedicated wahoo rigs ready at a moments notice every time I'm in wahoo country! And that's not counting 2 dedicated trolling outfits. If there's a human with more seastrike 33's than me, I'd like to meet him! I probably have at least 50 with my own custom mylar patterns, in black chrome, gold chrome, and regular chrome, plus some custom ones in purple and pink chrome, with every imaginable mylar combination. Not gonna get started on bombs today! Wucking Fahoo!!!!!

I've caught all my Wahoo on bombs of various colors, a few on wired bait leaders but none on jigs, but I have to admit I never fish them that's how effective a fast bomb in thier habitat is 😁

    Try a 6X jr. at a slower jig swimming speed. Bob Mitchner used to do well with one. I will throw a 7X and get bit too…
