  • 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!
