Aluminum Trolling Stix
Seeing a school of 100-pound yellowfin tuna leaping and splashing on the surface as they decimate a bait pod will get any crew scrambling for the tuna rigs. More often than not, one of the plugs thrown is going to be a cedar plug. Nothing more than a hollow piece of cedar wood about 4 to 6 inches long with a lead head on one end, the traditional cedar plug pulled from the back end, making it dance and dodge like a fleeing baitfish, and the tuna loved it. Reel Hot Lures recently designed an all-aluminum version of the cedar plug that they call Tuna Sticks.
These 6-inch long aluminum lures mimic the traditional cedar plug, pulling from a single 9/0 Mustad hook resting in the tail end. The company uses a bright dipped anodizing finish to keep the lures shiny and also adds a knurled finish near the head to reflect more light. The lures come in seven colors and are made right here in the USA. For more information visit www.reelhotlures.com.
