    Large lipped deep diving plugs that will get down 25 feet or so.
    There may also be some bluefish and "bonita" (Little Tunny) if the bait is striped anchovies or small LYs.

    I have trolled for Bull reds with great luck. I am at Four Seasons and many days 8 to 10 boats trolling. I never thought of that. Thanks.

    I use a Bill Lewis Saltwater Supertrap. I have had great success with all colors, but white with a red head has been best, especially on top of the Dixey Bar. You do need around 8 ft plus of depth, but that's not hard to find.

    Hooks are strong and have plenty of gap for the bony mouths and they seem to love the noise, especially in dingy water which is frequent on the D Bar. They are expensive, but I accept no substitutes - I think the tone of the rattle is the difference.

    They are murder on Jacks, too.

    RTR anyway.

    We trolled today around the DBar and Sand Island. Caught 4, 2 on Super Traps and 2 on Mann's Stretch 15s, 36-41 inches. Not bad since we didn't start until after 9:00 and birds were sitting the whole time. Never saw any school action or reds following our hooked reds, just singles.
