Default White Marlin and Sailfish baits

On the baitmster website they have both Pee Wee baits and smalls. The Pee Wees are 6 to 7 inches while the smalls are 7 to 8 inches. Which size do you all recomend?

No one has replied, .....so I Iwill give you my input. I feel that the pee-wees are a bit too small. They require a hook 5/0 or smaller and tend to be very fragile. I like a "regular small" hoo about 7-8 inches in length on 80-100 lb leader for sails. Just my .02.

The little ones wash out real quick.

Our smalls this year were about 6 inches average. The only white I have ever caught was on a single strand wire, iland tracker and a small hoo. take that for what it is worth.

I have heard they like small baits, but have seen plenty of pics with larger baits in their mouth.

I have done best on small hoo's, (7" to 8") with mini green machine's being very good also!(about 8") they love to hit across the middle of the spread. (the short riggers, and the bait I run in the middle off my boat, I think the middle bait gets hit cause they missed one of the riggers first. catch'em up!

Try Baitmaster's pre-rigged "white marlin special". If I remember correctly, they are select small-medium hoo with 100# mono leader and hand-sharpened hooks.
