    Somebody for the love of god post a pic of a zucchini broomtail! I have a few jet heads and keep hearing the ZB is getting hit most of the time. Also, I have a cedar plug, plain wood no paint, is that something I should be tossi out this weekend on a 2.5 day trip? Any tackle tips would be greatly appreciated, thanks!

    The one in the middle.

    Zuker makes them. Charkbait sells them.

    Most other shops do as well.

    MOST PEOPLE CALL THE ZUKER GRASS SKIRTS A BROOM TAIL.

    I believe the one with red is Zucker's version of a MX flag BT. A zucchini BT is green and white like a..... well like a zucchini. If your zuchinis have red on them you should get out the bug spray.

    In my experience Zucchini is usually orange, green and yellow...just like a zuchini plant with a big blossom on it. Their orange does look a little red though..

    I gues different manufacturers have different interpretations...

    Pictures on post #2 (middle one) and post #3 are good. They looks like you could sweep the floors with them. Same type of material, with light orange and a redish orange, yellow and green colors.

    Screw all the foo foo stuff.

    Fish the cedar plug on the corner. Tuna love the naked stick.

    It is that tool every fisherman who chases Pelagics should not be without... Hands down killer along with the Natural Cedar plug standard length.

    Cedar plug long.
    Broom tail short.


    Don't leave home without them.

    Plus, with the Plug, you can wrap all the other lines and DENY the other fisherman.

    Thanks to you all! Great advice! I already have a few ferathers and a naked cedar plug, but the cedar plug is about 4"-6" long, maybe too big. Just got me a Zuker broomtail in Rootbeer. turns out I already have the Zuker green head mexican flag, keep hearing those are killers too.

    Went to 3 locations yesterday and still could not find this color trolling lure. Not all bad, though, I was able to get 2 really hard to find micro jet heads in black/purple and blue/white. Thanks Nate for getting them into your shop so quickly (less then 1 week @hook,line & sinker).

    You try Anglers Arsenal and/or Fishermans Landing down in Point Loma? They aren't the cheapest, but between the two stores they've got everything. Fishermans Landing Tackle shop has to have them.

    Tried Anglers and they were sold out. Fisherman's Landing looked like a zoo in the parking lot so did not want to deal with it.

    I hate that f' parking lot. Its gotten worse over the years too. Squidco does not have them (was there yesterday). I'm headed somewhere with outrigger clips today so I'll check for you where ever I go.
