I sure do!

We caught ours last weekend on pink and white tuna feathers runnin 6 ft. behind a pink 5 1/2 inch Boone bird.

They'll also hit Carolina Yummee flyin fish as well.

Top water action/disturbance gets their attention and for some reason, pink/white was the color they wanted.

Oh yeah, plain jane cedar plugs, they work real good.

Yumme flyin fish are somethin ya might want to consider, we've had great luck with those. You can use the un-rig'd ones in a daisy chain with the trailer as a fold back wing kind... works really good.

Single bird rigs with tuna feathers, cedar plugs in plain, mahi, or mackeral color (old standby that works), green machine (which I havent had too much success with)....

We have daisy chain birds (up to 5 on one line before the trailer lure), teaser bar with squid bodies (Yozuri's) and even use them Yozuri bonita lures (which work really well too). We have a daisy chain 5 seven inch green/yellow squid combo with a pink/flash trailer that we just started usin.. so I have no feedback for ya on that.

The only thing we dont use is Mann's baits... for some reason all the Mann's baits I have just dont swim right.

Bust out the trusty ol cedar plug, if chunkin drop one back or even cast a plug out and bobble it back.

Sounds like yer ready to go play some "football"!! :D

Well said Sinker man, I agree. Dont get me wrong, it's fun, it's tough... but it's "tough". You made me sit back and reflect of what we went through and heck, put the boat thru... man o man.... I'd rather drag a fat doe 3 miles to the truck thru the Uwharries than go out there in Dec-Feb to fight bluefin....

But dang if bluefin aint fun...... hard to explain...

We're gonna give it a go this season again, but, we also plan to hunt as well. We'll probably trailer the boat over to Morehead Thanksgivin weekend and leave it until mid Feb then bring her back for south spring fishin around Wrightsville/Cape Fear area.

Whooooo... I'm sore just thinkin 'bout it!!! :D
