Hi all,

This year will be the first time I will be trying my luck fishing for albacore.
Found lots of useful information in here! Read and learnt a lot.

At the moment still setting up the Trolling setup.
When it comes to lures, what size do you use? Should I stick to the 6-8 inch size?

Also, did anyone ever try jigging for albacore?
Or maybe Spinning when one sees surface action?

Tight lines all Smiley

Depending on the number of lures you intend to troll, i would recommend a mix of both hard and soft lures, average length fom 4-6 inches, maybe even 8 inches for soft lures.  Some really good spinners do cast for alungi during the season.  I have known others to fly fish also.
