  • Cedar Plugs

    Found a bunch of them. Never dragged plugs, just skirted 'hoos. Any opinions?

    I think that you will find them in every old timers tackle box. They work.

      It's been a while, but trolling strings of three, with the hook in the last one, at 5-6 kts has caught me tuna, albies and dolphin off Virginia.Here's an old @1990, pic of a hefty albie, with the cedar plug that caught him.

        2nd week of june til about 1st week of july. Thats all we pulled on the flat line at the transom. Never left home without them. Blue and white, red and white worked best. 21 and 26 mile hill outta wachapreague, Va. Big Bluefish there now.

          Exact same location, but we went out from Chincoteague. Unpainted worked for us on the flat lines, doorknobs or Japanese Feathers on the riggers. You could start with colors, but those blues will have them unpainted in no time.

            These are used a lot on the west coast for the tunas and are very reliable. The Mahi Mahi, and even Wahoos, will attack them too!

              Caught a bunch of Bonito on them but it was 40 years ago. I dont think the fish know any different today.

                          I was too embarrassed to ask two questions so 5hank you Jerry for asking the first one. Now, what is a big bird teaser?
                          They had probably 20 of those things for sale for a dollar when they were closing the Marina in Wachapreague. I'm so cheap and stupid I passed on them.

                            Rig this in front of a cedar plug and set it far back. I have caught more dolphin and tuna on that combo than everything else I have

                              How far back is the plug from the bird?
