Several brands can be used with outstanding results. Salas, Burns Bombs, Tady and Hopkins are our favorites. For Tuna and Wahoo, single hooks are a must. Trebles are fine for other fish such as Yellowtail. When deciding on lures, it is sometimes best to wait and consult the personnel at Fisherman?s Landing Tackle Department, prior to your trip. They have current information and know what’s working.
