Default Key Largo Fishing

We normally go fishing out of Key Largo area for Dolphin. I used to go fishing with "the guys" and counted on the experience of others that I was with. I purchased a 23' W/A Pro Line and took my family for their first real fishing trip. The seas were the normal 3-4's which is about 2' higher than the surf on our side of the state (Fort Myers Area).

I am looking for some tips on rigging Ballyhoo. I purchased some pre-wired hooks and then made some myself. I had a hard time geting the ballyhoo to swim straight and look natural. I even cut the tail bone so it wouldn't be stiff, and they still swam or spanked the water.

Any help on rigs, skirts or teasers I need all the help I can get! We will be down in March looking to max out, and I would like to get a plan in place. Thanks for your feedback!
