Need recommendation on best brand of Wahoo lure? For Texas Gulf Coast?
What’s the best brand of Wahoo lure?

Planning on going after some Wahoo soon and I have read a lot of threads on this site and others about Wahoo rigs and lures…

But…. there are so many different brand, models and weights that I don’t know where to start and which to choose.

Some are cheap and some are $50-$60….

I don’t think I will be high speed trolling (since I have only 3/0 tackle)

So 6 to ten knot speeds will be my starting point

If I could get some recommendation on sizes and models of trembler, cedar plugs and trolling lures it sure would help narrowing things down.

Also - is it worth it to buy them pre rigged with wire or better to make up the leaders you’re self?

A little more Info:
Boat 26’cc Sea Hunt w/ twin F-150 Yam
Reels – TLD20’s, Penn 545’s and Avet Hx’s
Downrigger equipped – but no outriggers

Thanks

Ilander rigged with ballyhoo work great on downrigger.
Marauder and Stretch 30+ will catch wahoo.

Remember to sharpen the hooks, JMO
I highly recommend you rigged it your self or have the Pro rig it for you. Majority of pre rigged trolling lure doesn't come with high quality hooks.

If you only have 30lb gear, you might try a black and purple little speedy by Braid. A pink stretch 30+ would also do the trick.
