A must have for any pelagic for me is an ilander/ballyhoo combo. Always have at least one in the spread.

I have had a lot of success with the Ballyhood Snagger Daisy Chain here and in the keys for Mahi Mahi.... It is a must have on my boat.


AND I have caught Wahoo on them as well....

I also have a lure Chris recommended to me for wahoo, WoolyBooger Sugar Drop

And this year we'll be trying the Ballyhood Banshee cowbell hi speed lure

Ditto what Alex said, Ilanders are easy and a no brainer. Simple duster/ballyhoo combos are great too and will take anything from 1lb chicken Dolphin to 400lb Blues.

Of course, having a plug in the prop wash pays off big with Wahoo. My favorites are either a Braid Marauder or Braid Little Speedy in orange/black

My hands-down favorite plug for wahoo and tuna and I've caught quite a few dolphin and AJs with it too. It's small size means a better hookup rate and can be used on all sizes of tackle, including casting with spinning gear. I also like Braid's prices better than another, better-known Japanese competitor.
