Yes we get them on the marlin lureswhen towing close to Kingi territory so they will take them. Not sure if that is your best option but it can work.

Livebaits dropped down to a school of kings or slow trolled in good kingi country are hard to beat but trolled lures are an option.

Fantastic I have a few spots that I might have a cheeky tow around, from stick bait spot to stickbait spot, this is a bullet head tuna lure speed wise do you reckon 7kts?
