    So, to summarize, best color is green, no make that pink. Best is bait, no, bombs. Better make that Fast Raiders, Gold/Pink. Nope, Chrome/Blue! Got it?

    And Wahoo are Mackerel on Crack, they make fishermen Bat Shit Crazy.

    Crystal clear isn't it Steve? No wonder we all buy and bring so much crap.

    Yes, and then reading recently about how good the wire leader bait fishing was working, why do we keep buying more and more bombs and jigs?

    For me, catching wahoo on artificial lures is more fun...at least a little bit. But I like catching them on bait too.

    What I need to do is stop buying more jigs, and instead have Fishdoggary paint some of the ones I have!

    Only 65? I'm pretty sure the handle is going to rip off mine one of these days. I had to start buying separate mini boxes for different situations and because of my love for 6x heavies.

    It won’t last for most and never applies to the rest.

    Full disclosure: zero wahoo to my name. That said, these pink beauties are the hot ticket. I may catch some heat for publicizing :D.
