    I'd got with a 6'6" stout 50# set up for yoyo'ing. Then your favorite bait and cod rig.

    As above, lots of heavier lead and yoyo iron.

    have fun.

    It can be deep in some spots and strong current so 400yds of line and 1-3lbs of weight if the current is strong. Otherwise you'll never get down where the Reds & lings are hiding.

    As for yoyoing for yellows heavy jigs can help to get down as was stated above

    Good luck

    If you fish bait I recommended reverse dropper loop with 18-24" of line from the weight with a good size (Heavy wire) circle hook.

    If you can cast.

    Throw up hill of the current and by the time it reaches the boat youul just about be on the bottom. As soon as you hit bottom give it a few cranks and it will slightly lessen your chances of getting snagged.

    Good luck and have fun

    I've been 2x in the last month. You want at least 40lb for both yo yo and rock cod and a short stout rod. it is deep. yo yo is 150-250 and rockcod can be 400 ft. I enjoyed the 2 speed reel for rockcod especially after cranking like crazy on the yo yo. The scrambled egg 6x is good. They were also recommending any jig with red. In fact at the landing they were adding fresh red paint to some jigs. I guess because of all the red crabs. You need some 16-20 oz weights, 5/0 hooks and 3+ yo/yo jigs. Have fun! Ed
