You will be fine with those rigs. Use the boats trolling gear. Just make sure you bring flourocarbon, 20-40 lb. Good luck. Happy Fathers Day :D

For your 30lb test outfits bring 25lb test fluoro carbon. The difference between 25lb test and 30lb test is often getting bit or not. Learn how to tie a seagar knot at the tackle store and you will be set for a great trip.

Well off to the blue fin grounds. fathers day fishing. We were 100 miles down and it was down right shitty weather. few spots of blue fin but no biters. the seas were 12-16 ft and just kicking our ass. after getting the hell beat out of us we started heading back to the islands 11 hrs of uphill crap. Captain Chris did a good job keeping us safe and upright. Theres no question he is one of the top skippers in the fleet. The guy has spent his life on the water and always does a good job in bad seas and finding the fish. So we get to the islands and look around and we end up down at the rock pile and we drop the pick and the yellow bite goes wide open, quaility fish 15-25 range+ i was fishing sardines on straight 25 big game mono no leaders or bullshit, just pick your baits. i got my limit and then started hooking and handing to the pople who were not having any luck. This is the best yellows i have fished local in many years. We had a great group of guys and the crew was the best. Captain Chris is one of the top captains in the fleet hands down. He has spent his life on the ocean and not only finds and catched the fish but always keeps you feeling safe and makes the right calls. The food was very very good also. I recomend a trip with Chris on the Indian asap.I have fished with him for 16+ ears and have never came home empty!! Great fathers day and great charter boat!!!!
