    Going out 9/2/19 from SD any intel would help!

    20lb. Fluorocarbon to mono to braid. Change your fluoro after each fish. Fluoro doesn’t return to original shape after being stretched. Kinked line won’t get bit. Size 4 hooks. Change your bait if it doesn’t swim hard. I wouldn’t leave it for more than 5 minutes. Less on a sport boat.
