Ballyhoo is renowned as one of the most prolific baits in offshore sport fishing for marlin, Yellowfin tuna, Mahi mahi, and wahoo. Our realistic lure perfectly mimics the actions of a real Ballyhoo, proving irresistible to pelagic fish in a variety of eye-catching colors. Get your hands on one of these today for a truly unbeatable lure for marlin, tuna, wahoo, and dorado. You’ll be Ballyhoo-ked!
Ballyhoo are a primary source of food for most pelagic predators. King fish, Mahi mahi, wahoo, marlin, sailfish, tuna of all varieties, skipjack, and countless other species all eat these little fish. These 11″ realistic Ballyhoo lures troll from 5-12 knots and can be rigged with a standard hook rig, or of course, a Ballyhoo trailer. Our favorite spot for this lure is on the long rigger where it swims straight and fast, due to its’ dynamic body and slim profile, perfect for longer travels. The Ballyhoo also proves effective in a “medium corner position,” trailing behind other jet head or plunger style lures as an extra. This lure can truly go anywhere you want it with results. Even picky fish rarely pass by the Ballyhoo.
