Get some islanders and rig with ballyhoo too. Blue and white great all around and red and black wahoo killer.

I agree on pulling some islanders with ballyhoo blue/white and black/purple are my go to baits. Moldcraft wide range is also a good bait to drag. I wouldn't soley rely on cedar plugs but just my opinion. I use them (espcially when tuna are in the area) but wouldn't pull a spread with just those.

Thanks for the advice. Spread will be small as we don't have outriggers yet probably just three maybe four rods. Never been to the nipple or caught a Mahdi hope to do both:)

vary speeds and patterns, do a figure 8 here and there, remember no bait swims in a straight line for miles. I sometime pick up a rod and pump it a few times just to excite anything that may be watching..... have fun and good luck, we will be out tomorrow (fat Jax CH 68, but not as far as your going)....

Fishing was tough at nipple area for us yesterday. Not much to fish around. We did get a blue to bite for a little while but lost it. Advice of blue and white islanders sounds right to me. That's my usual setup for ballyhoo. Wahoo love them. I do cedar plug behind a bird way way back. I've had that hit when nothing else would. Good for tuna and skiddish fish.
