My father and I want to get into Wahoo trolling. He has the boat. we'll be trolling 4-5 lines max due to the outriggers not being mounted on the boat yet. We are going to sell a few guns to buy a planer rod setup as well. What some go to lures for trolling? How about rod/reels? We have a bunch of penn senators that i think will get us by for now. Do we need 50lb class reels all around? thanks, any help will be appreciated.

I made a video awhile back on some basic wahoo lures. Check it out. You don't need all the stuff in the video but it will give you a good idea. I started with a TLD 50LRSA on my planner rod then moved up to a Tiagra 50 LRS. Both work fine. If your on a budget I would go with the TLD 50LRSA. However, there are other great reels out there.

Any sea witch style lures are great as long as they are blue and white, or white and blue....jk.

We’ve been having success with just about every color but we like the sea witches in those colors as well as purples, orange and black as well as red and black. We like some Mylar in them too.
We’ve been using the blue and silver Carolina lures with big success lately. The ones with chrome heads.

If your looking for some world class hand tied custom witches let me know. Can make pretty much anything you want. Here's a thread I haven't updated in a while but has some examples in it
