Those are awesome for flat lines. Change the trebles out with an “in-line circle hook”. VMV and Owner make them. As for leader connection I run a short 2ft section of wire or 150-275 7-strand cable, then attach it to your leader. We have a lot of wahoo where we fish so it helps with bite offs. You can run your leader straight to them though. Crimp a ball bearing swivel to the end of your leader and use the split ring to attach the swivel to the lure. Works great and keeps it swimming nicely

I think you’ve got nice colors. The mahi color will be great for billfish, especially marlin that eat small mahi. The chrome will get a wahoos attention especially as it flashes in the prop wash, the black/silver mimics tuna in a way, the all white you could paint a red “head” around the front of the white, or other color combinations. Then have it look like something that they paint cedar plugs and other offshore lures. I’ll get a pic of how mine are rigged to give you an idea. If you don’t need them all they look brand new and I’m sure you could sell a few here on the forum. The inline hooks are beefy and you run the rear hook point up and the belly one hook point down. Gives an “offset” hook set that works great and won’t beat the lures paint up like a treble hook does

Kings will hit them too along with stripers in the winter. I have caught a mahi on them also.

That would be great if you could post up a couple pics.

Thanks for the help!
