I'm out of Chicago going on the 3.5 day. I have all the gear, but I have one question, are big Bluefin still around? Should I still bring the heavy out fit? I believe do in, "better to have and not need...", but it seems as they have moved on. Hell, I could troll with it. Thanks all.

Yes. They are still around, they are fussy but could pop up and turn on anytime anyday. Id bring a solid 60-80lb setup if you have it. Don't need a kite setup, the boat should have that dialed in. Not sure exactly what your trip will do, but my guess is 1-2 day of small yellowfin and one shot at glory fishing if the first day goes well.

Bring it if you have it. They will likely try for the big ones for at least a day.

Bring it! Better to have it and not need it than the other way around.
