    Re: Brads cut plugs colors

    Get the full size ones.
    For color, hot tomale and the glow one with cow spots worked good in the morning. Once the sun was up, blackjack was the most consistent color I noticed getting bit.
    I rigged mine with 30lb line and a bead chain coming out the back with a split ring and 3/0 or 4/0 gamakatsu big river hook. For me the single hook was easier to deal with... and didnít tangle up with other cut plugs in my box. If you can find the 2 packs that come unrigged you pay $1 more for a second cut plug.
    I put tuna fish inside mine with a squirt of procure bloody tuna on it. I drain a can of tuna in oil and add some sea salt. Fish on!
    Itís better to be fishing and thinking about God then to be in church thinking about fishing.

    Re: Brads cut plugs colors

    Just a general assortment of colors will work. I buy the two packs with no hooks and tie my own set up. I like a single siwash out the back and a treble on the front hook.

    The first thing I would do is get the large sizes. Biggest one they make. The 2nd thing I would do is cut out the hooks and leaders, and throw them as far into the trash as you can. The hooks that come with the plugs are garbage. I prefer the owner cutting edge treble hooks.

    #3: For color, I would start with black jack, the hot tomales, and the (I cant remember the name) plug that has the chrome, cheartreuse, and red on it. Those plugs were my top ones that caught fish for me last year.

    There are others that work well, but those are my favorites to start out with.
