A Cedar Kind of Guy
Trainor is a noted big-game captain who plies the waters of the Bahamas and the Northeast for Over Under Sportfishing. I've fished with him on several occasions and scarcely recall him not dropping a cedar plug into the spread. "We fish them nearly every day in the Bahamas," says Trainor. "I fish them from the shotgun position, some 75 to 100 yards back, and as a daisy chain. I'll have three cedar plugs rigged on 130-pound-test monofilament leader, and each is staggered 18 inches apart. The first two cedar plugs are blue-and-white, and the last one, a natural wood color, is rigged with a 10/0 long-shank needle-eye hook. We catch yellowfins on the cedar daisy chain - and wahoo, dolphin and even the occasional blue marlin.
