A few of the color combos:
Purple and Black- “Magbay Special”
This dark purple and black lure is perhaps the most famous color combo of all time for wahoo. As a result, it is an absolute must-have if wahoo is the target. Since the wahoo are probably thickest in the world in Magdalena Bay, this is our special lure.
Pink and White- “Lady Magdalena”
It was obvious over the years that pink lures are often the first to get hit. We tested this lure to the extremes, and turns ocean wahoo to boat Wahoo every time. Lady Magdalena may or may not be married to Jesus, but she sure will catch a boat load of fish.
Orange and Black- “Tequila Sunrise”
Dawn’s first light in Mag Bay seemed a fitting name for this bright orange desperado lure. In search of the best of all time, this one is pretty close. We saw this lure struck 5 times in a row, with nothing else hit in the spread. “Wahoo-prenuers” love it. For some reason, wahoo go crazy for this lure at times, and if it’s hot, it’s hot.
Red and Black- “Bloody Mary”
The Magbay Desperado is a popular lure for targeting wahoo, and there are several reasons why it is so effective:
- Design: The Desperado is designed to create a tight, erratic action in the water, which mimics the movements of a wounded or distressed baitfish. This action can be particularly attractive to wahoo, which are known for their aggressive feeding behavior and willingness to strike fast-moving prey.
- Durability: The Desperado is made with high-quality materials, including a stainless steel head and a durable skirt, which can withstand the tough conditions and hard fighting of wahoo fishing. This durability ensures that the lure can stand up to repeated use and continue to attract fish over time.
- Color: The Desperado is available in a range of colors, including purple and black, which are known to be effective for targeting wahoo. The lure’s bright colors and realistic appearance make it particularly attractive to these game fish.
- Weight: The Desperado is a heavy lure, which allows it to be fished at high speeds without losing its action or control. This is particularly important when targeting wahoo, which are known for their fast swimming speeds and the need for quick, decisive strikes.
- Versatility: While the Desperado is primarily designed for wahoo fishing, it can also be effective for targeting other species, such as tuna and dorado. Its versatile design and action make it a popular choice among anglers who are looking to catch a variety of game fish.
Overall, the Magbay Desperado is a highly effective wahoo lure that is prized for its tight action, durability, color, weight, and versatility. Anglers who are looking to catch these fast and elusive game fish would do well to add this lure to their tackle box.
