Braid Marauder Lures - The name synonymous with wahoo and tuna plugs! Pulled up to 12 knots, the tail beating action of this lure draws savage strikes from the world's flashiest game fish. Single stainless wire construction, heavy duty forged dual swiveled single hooks, and the hottest colors make for a killer plug.

Marauder™ is the true-tracking lure of choice for wahoo catchers on the West Coast and around the world. Pull these lures up to 12 knots and hang on. Rarely needs adjusting, but slight turn of line tie will do the trick. The exact angle of the diving face and internal ballast keep the lure working at all times. The remarkable Marauder's™ vibrating action matches that of a fleeing mackerel. Better than live bait, this durable plug has best hooking qualities around with dual, swiveled single hooks.

Simple easy lure for wahoo. Don't have to worry about trolling weights or a planer.

Hook up ratio can be better
July 13, 2019
not sure if it's cause the hook can wrap around the lure's body cuz it is 1/4 inch too long or what..... maybe ill add some rescue tape around the swivel to prevent the hook from flopping around everywhere.

Too easy to catch Wahoo with these. I have all but eliminated skirted lures from my spread because these produce ever time I go out.

Large Skipjack Marauder

Great lure, nice colors, tracks great at high speed.
ProsLarge lure gets more bites to me than the medium size Marauder.
ConsAfter a few trips and fish hits, the lure seems to fill with water and track erratic. Solution would be to drill a couple holes on the bottom.

Lure performance
April 8, 2017
Very good quality. Tracks well at my trolling speed between 8-10 knots. I notice the large lure has more strikes, but the misses are also more.
ProsLots of hits with this large lure.
ConsMore misses than the medium Marauder.

Always pull one off the corner. Catches the big dolphin and wahoo love it.
ProsCatches fish. Period
ConsSometimes swims erratically and will jump out of water when reeling in if not careful.

Marauders work, however.....
October 13, 2014
I use marauders on a consistent basis. I like the large orange/black. They work great for wahoo. I troll them at higher speeds(10 knots+) and run em close to the boat with my jet heads on the longer lines. I use a 300# mono leader but I see a lot of the other captains using wire leaders. I like to use them as they are factory made but I've seen other guys change out the hooks. I see guys using double hooks on them, too. I've caught wahoo on the medium black/purple and the large orange/black.
On 3 separate occasions, on the 3 different large marauders, I've had one of the hooks break off the lure after a strike. Each time the break occurs at the stainless steel ring that connects the large swivel to the body of the lure. These are newer, rust free, seemingly perfect condition lures. I've e-mailed Braid and sent them pictures of the lures but they failed to respond. Disappointing. I've like to hear an opinion.
Also, Some of the marauders will split at the seam, on the head of the lure and absorb water. This problem occurs often and the rattle fails to work after this has happened.
ProsThey catch wahoo. Less time replacing lure skirts.
ConsExpensive. The quality of the lure does not match the price. Poor life expectancy of the product.

Marauder on wahoo
May 2, 2014
I always have a Marauder in my pattern when tracking down wahoo. I've recently tried the skipjack model and have had great results!
ProsAttracts wahoo to the boat. The strong vibrations are a definite turn on for the fish.
ConsThe single hooks are not super effective. I would guesstimate that the lure has a 50% strike to hook up ratio. The wahoo WILL go after the other lures in your spread even after they miss the maurader. Some of the other captains are using/experimenting with double hooks on the lure but I'm not sure how it effects the overall performance. It would be helpful if Braid would give some suggestions on multiple options for hook rigs.

How do you adjust a murader to track true
1 Answer
Speed will really dictate how true this lure tracks the only other way of changing the way it tracks is by using a trolling drail.

How deep tve 6" tracks at 10 knots
1 Answer
These would dive 1-3 ft at 10 knots. If the conditions are choppy or rough it will be too light and will most likely skip out of the water going that speed. Another option would be the Yo-Zuri 3D Magnum Deep Diver Floating Lure's. These are through wired, rigged, and will work better for that application. 8-10 knots would be the best speed.
