    On the water Excel 16 day fishing report

    Which 100lb Pink Fluorocarbon?

    From XL: Eric has the biggest tuna so far with this 180 pounder caught on 80# Yo-zuri pink fluorocarbon. These type of conditions; deep blue water and bright sunshine, is where I've seen Yo-Zuri Pink out-catch all other brands of fluoro. If you have multiple big fish rigs in your arsenal, at...

    Is it possible to keep big baits alive on sport fishing boats?

    We had 2 of them them on the XL for many seasons. They were plumbed into the bait tank's water pumps.

    will LR boat let me troll my own lure ?

    you either need to be longer or deeper than the other lures. The way I read TFT's post, he'll troll the bar in the #1 or #5 position. The bar will be shorter than #2-3-4 positions and the rudder will carry it far to port or starboard out in clean water, clear of anyone else even in the turns...
