Default Need your help

I am taking my boat over to our club event Take A Kid Fishing, now I practice this almost everytime I go out with my kids but these kids have not been exposed to the joy of catching fish or being drenched by sea spray from a center console in a heavy wind.

Anyway we are going to be trolling along for blues in a local area and if there is one fish I stay away from while trolling it's blues lol.. What should I use to be a hit trolling for these toothy creatures? I have a broken back perch rapala, manns divers 20 & 25 and a few crystal minnows but they don't troll very well.... what will work on blues trolling from light to med boat rod, Shimano Torium, Tekota with braid and wire leaders ?

Thanks for your help

I dont know if Im much help ed because of my boat inexperience. But I would turn to metals. I would troll with spoons and metals like big crocks and large tins. But I have virtually no experience trolling. Everytime I trolled I caught blues on spoons or metals. But they will hit almost anything.

Im curious if the rest of the guys would concur.

Default Pt.Jude Lures

Have you ever seen these PT. Jude Lures ? St. Jude Lures

I have these in hopes of using some for Bonito this summer but they have been killer on bass. I am wondering if something like this could be trolled for blues?

Blue fish will hit a beer can trolled. Those St. Jude lures look awesome. Great match the hatch. Especially for Bass. I like the butterfish / peanut bunker and the sand eel / silverside :beer:

No need to troll for blues lol. Cut a broom handle and make some plugs, waterproof em, put a treble on the rear, and cast it at 'em lol

Get a Gags Bluefish Bomb (blue N white or the chrome one if the sun is out) and they will pound them all day.
