    It was an incredible weekend with great guys on a nice boat with solid success on the larger models. Thank you John for hosting us and convincing your wife to send along 1000 breakfast burritos. Next time we can burn my fuel.

    Adding to John's post, both days we hooked and lost a fish in the morning due to terminal tackle failures. These fish are TOUGH, so don't put anything out with a knicked leader or a marginal knot. The fish will expose your weakness. Both days we landed fish in the afternoon when the weather was garbage and when we were 30 minutes from heading for the barn. You can't catch them from the dock...stick it out! Also, highly recommend focusing your time where you are seeing or marking fish. We did 30 minute tacks all day in the same zone. We marked fish all day! If no marks for 5 minutes we'd cross that area off and narrow the productive zone down further.

    As for the yummee, its got to be running right or you're wasting time. I've heard lots of people say it's supposed to have 3 seconds of air time. I can tell you we did not follow that rule at all. I think it's best to have it in the water as much as possible provided that it's not plowing or running like a bird and that all the line is out of the water at all times.

    Anyhow I'm no expert. I learn something new almost every trip, but I rely a lot on what I've been told or shown by others so hopefully the above helps someone out. Good luck.

    Speed depended on wind/seas/angle in relation to the seas to keep it skipping right. We ran generally between 7-8kts. Boston big game kite for the win! Had a malfunction early in the day and tried to run an aftco. There just wasn't enough lift for us. Then again we could have adjusted it wrong. Boston big game is idiot proof.

    It isn't all roses out there, some people just follow party boats around, drive fast in chum lines and generally put down fish. Not a clue.

    what rigging set up do you guys have on your yummi's? Do you have the treble assist hook out the back? What speed do you troll them with the kite flying? Thanks for the insight as I bought some but haven't run them before.

    We are using the assist trebles, wire to the main hook, crimped, heat shrinked, 2oz chin weight, crimped to 5ft 200# floro. Trolling speed depends on conditions, Sat and Sun it blew 15+ so we were at 6.9-7.4.
