Best Wahoo Bait?

I want to go to the Flower Gardens this winter and wondering the best baits to pull. I have some of the old blue and Chrome Mylures from a while back but have been out of the game for a while. We just got a 30' Rampage. I need a weather window. Wanted to go this past weekend but the boat isnt quite ready for an overnighter.

Everyone has their favorites but a good rule of thumb for me is to figure out if the fish are feeding on the surface or down deep (use your sounder) . If the fish are on the surface, islanders with ballyhoo will work great. If they are deeper, stretch 30s or braid marauders work very well. If they are even deeper, run any of these on a downrigger. Pull an assortment of colors to figure out the flavor of the day. Good luck!

Most every hoo caught on my boat was on this lure.. Even had a REALLY big one shot straight out of the water with it in its mouth! Most exciting moment ever!!
You can see I missed a fish as it took the back 1/2 of the ballyhoo. Double hook rigs for now on!

Some type of lime green has always been a good starter.

I bought a lot of Islander lured several years ago and they were in it, not a Islander lure though. Closest thing I food on eBay search “Bleeding Mackerel “

The head is solid brass with chrome coating nice n heavy!

Cabelas and Bass Pro carry them now, and they're cheaper.

I like Chris at Serious, and he's local. I use him when I can. But, if you are not nearby, you may be better off ordering or stopping by one of the above.
