A: We’ve had the best success trolling the 30” and 40” squid bars around south Florida. The 6” squids on the lures are a good fit for local Blackfin tuna and Mahi. We normally deploy at least 2 spreader bars, then run two rods with skirted ballyhoo on a Hootie Head. Great spread for trolling at 6-8 knots.
