Default Cedar plugs

How fast do you like to pull them??

Do you change the speed for different fish?? Say one speed for bonita and another for Blackfin??

Do you prefer the 4" or the 6"??

What about color?? I've done good in the past with unpainted, What color do you like??

I don't think color matters and I troll them at 7 knots just like any other lure. Last year we caught 5 Wahoo and 3 YFT on a 6" pink aluminum cedar plug.

I've used plain wood style, white, red and black and dolphin color. 7 to 9 knots.

The last trip we had the only lures that got hit period were dolphin colored. Strange.

Natural, dolphin and the orange/black head in 6". I rig them with a needle eye 7731 mustad instead of the 3412C that they suggest rigging them with that has a narrower gap. Anywhere from 5-8 knots works great and they do good above that as well but I add a 16oz trolling weight.
