Those of you that rig with wire do you ever catch tuna or mahi on them? How fast can they be trolled?

Can anyone give some guidance for getting the Gen 1 DTX to run straight and not pop out? I sent NOMAD a PM and he ignored it.

8 Knots is the sweet spot

i fish out of Savannah Ga. Mahi have been killing the purple minnow I have rigged on wire. Itís a gen1 and pulls perfect with wire. Itís been wrecked a few times by wahoo, but no hook up. Keep it fairly close and run it on a big reel off the transom. It can be hell to get in with weeds.

Striker - I just got my DTX 200 and want to run it with a trace of wire. Whats your recommendation with regard to the split ring when rigging with wire, remove it or leave it?

Also how fare back do you recommend running them to reach the max depth at 8 knots?

My buddy and I ran Nomads for the first time last weekend. We used #7 wire haywired to the split ring with a clear swivel at the line end. I was surprised that the plugs continued to run straight even after the leader became kinked after landing many fish.

Here's a post on the Florida Sportsman were we discuss Nomad's for grouper trolling:

I bought a few gen 1ís. A year ago. Havenít tried them yet, if they donít run straight, how do we exchange them. Definitely donít have receipt any more.

I bought a couple. On the first morning I was headed out to give them a try I blew a trailer tire at 03:45 on Easter Sunday morning. I have never blown a trailer tire before so all I can report is that if you buy these lures the risk of blowing a trailer tire increases astronomically.

Anxious us to give them a try though. There are days and conditions where my HST wahoo trolling just won’t work. I’m looking to these as “Plan B”.
