Top quality lure
After doing some research, this was one of the most recommended lures for high speed wahoo trolling and after seeing videos on what was caught on them I decided to try them. Bought four. Fast shipping with no issues. I am really impressed by the quality of these lures and would recommend them.
ProsBeautiful lure, large, excellent quality, heavy duty hooks with ball bearing swivels.
ConsI can’t find out how deep it actually trolls

Big Bait Big Fish
Yet to use this lure, but it is definitely a huge bait. Hopefully the old saying big bait big fish holds true. Heavy duty hardware and hooks.
ConsPossibly too big.

Wahoo Killer
The Wahoo here in Florida absolutely destroy these lures. We've had to cut back at with how many we troll because there's no enough room to fight 4-6 hookups at the same time.

Tuna like the smaller Bonita
I like to mix it up when trolling for tuna, so I frequently add a 6 3/4 inch Bonita to my spread. Rigged with fluorocarbon and not wire, yellowfin seem to prefer the dorado color, while I've caught Bluefin on the purple/black

Wahoo candy
The y0-Zuri bonita is the very best wahoo hard bait on the market. This is my go-to lure sunrise to @ 8:30a.m. either planer or down rigger @ 15 to 25 feet down 3 to 6 knots speed. You can go faster but you have to forego the planer and downrigger and just set it very far back in your spread. I typically only run two hooks the other being a soft lure(sqid type). while wahoo fishing.

I recently purchased 2 of these (purple and black & orange and black) we fished them first light SE Florida in April just prior to the full moon. They trolled flawlessly at 14 knots and we got whacked by a wahoo within the first 10 minutes on the purple and black lure. I am impressed by the quality of these lures and would recommend them.
ProsVery realistic and priced right.
ConsNot really a flaw in the design but make sure that you set these in the water at a slow speed and verify that the lure is swimming correctly prior to releasing it fully. The hooks are large and tend to swing back over the top of the lure and stay there until reset.

Great Wahoo Lure
Time and time again this lure has been a top producer for hooking and boating Wahoo off North Carolina at the break where there has been bait close to a structure.When Wahoo are around it is always in our spread
ProsExcellent Quality Lure Great action

Awesome lure
I picked up the larger version of this lure just to see if I could land a monster with it. The quality is just as good as the small version and it's one of those times I don't really mind paying a high price for a really well made item. I also rigged this with 30 yards of 275lb cable to make sure I don't lose it to a bite off or broken wire due to the fast moving action of this lure. I feel like I could catch Jaws on this thing!

from Chicago asked:

Which wire and crimps would you recommend for wahoo trolling this lure?
1 Answer
To allow for the best action on the bonita, we would suggest using the AFW single strand tooth-proof wire somewhere between sizes 12 and 19. No crimps would be necessary, just a haywire twist on each connection. If you are looking to use a 49-strand wire we would suggest the AFW model number K480C-0. The appropriate crimps would be AFW model number J10F8B-B.
