Will these fish eat lures? Of course. The local favorites include Zuker 3.5 and 5.5 flat heads, Sevenstrand Kona Clones, Hi-5 and Mold Craft Wide Ranges in the 9.5- and 12-inch sizes. Favorite colors that anglers here reach for most often include purple/black, green/black, blue/white, red/yellow, petrolero, zucchini, and Mexican flag. A good overall trolling speed that gets you lots of bites from both marlin and sails is about 7 knots.
