Six to eight knots. Blue and silver on one side, red and silver on the other. Pink down the middle a bit further back. See what they are going for and adapt. Yes, use cigar minnows.

I like the blue&silver and the pink&silver. After you hook the cig on the duster, keep the boat in gear and drop it in the water next to the boat to make sure the cigar is on correct and not twisting and twirling.

Great all around bait. When we bottom fish drifting across structure, I always throw out a duster with a cig on it and drift. Amberjack and big snapper will come up and hit it while you are drifting. And nice kings.

Usually the biggest snapper of my day comes off the duster while drifting over structure.
And you can troll it when getting back on top of the structure. You always have a line in the water that way

This is what I use for everything that I want to slow troll an almost naked bait for.

Tip for trolling dead sigs cut the tail off and rip off side fins that really helps reduce the spin also if u look at top of the head on a cig they have a nice V shaped notch put ur hook just above that really makes them troll perfect every time


On side note I also like king rigs with stingers cuz they short hit alot
