Guadalupe and Alijos fish dropper loop in gear. Give it any line and you’re rocked. You stand a good chance of getting rocked anyway. I’d also use a bimini or surgeons loop there, not a regular dropper loop.
Rubberband rig, I slowly let line out with a lever drag very slighly engaged. When reeling it back in slowly with just enough drag that it comes back and pulls line off with the slightest tension.
Many of the bites happen on the slight wind back in.
