I?ve been limited to fall trips for a few years so it?s been a while since I fished the Albacore. I?ve got a 13 day coming up on the Rooster in July and I want to buy some rubber to fish the slide. I used to like the 5?, dark red and green ?worm king? type swim bait, with a 2 oz head. Seems like a lot more options are available now, what do you guys recommend? Color, brand, weight etc.

Also, what brand leadhead uses the best hooks? Thanks,

First choice...If you can fin them 5" megabaid LA sliders in anchovy or the 1 oz weight.....perfect every time on the slide....

I you can't find them the Ilike 5" fishtrap in channel island cj=hovy or purple black with 1 1/4 oz black head. JMO

I knew I?d get a bite on that! I?m on the 8-day after you and the 5-day Newell-YoZuri after that.

Glad the laudromat is walking distance!
What, no albies in the klongs? @(

FWIW, I've caught albies on the slide with lots of different type lures--platics, megabait type things, even dead fin bait, and haven't noticed that any one of them work particualry better than another. That being said, I'd try to match the hatch--if they are biting a partiuclar bait or color that day, try to have something that matches. I do agree with Fishy that black/purple, and anchovy or sardine type plastics are good, and 5" is a good size.
