Never pulled a cedar plug before. Do you pull it on a planer, trolling weight or up top? Where do you guys pull it in the spread? Shotgun, prop wash? Any suggestions will be appreciated.

Typically we pull it off one of the long riggers in clean water.

yes, they have a nose weight to keep it down. I like it have it far enough back where is will only occasionally skip.

Sometimes we move it to a flatline where the boat wash starts to clean up.

They are extremely versatile. You can do just about anything with them. Daisy chains (either in line or on droppers), single way back, single on the flats, behind a bird, etc.

Always mono, I think all mine are rigged on 220# fluoro or something like that. Last trip tuna fell in love too!

These guys speak the truth on cedar plugs. They don't look like much, but they bring fish to the gunnel. Green machines are great too.

I appreciate the comments and info. I will be pulling one all weekend in hopes that I have the same results. I have the red/white one, hopefully that is the color of the day!

IMO natural or something dark colored is best. I have a lot of cedar plug pics!
