    Calstar GFDH800xl Newell 229 for bait. But I would always rather catch them on the iron so 690J and Newell 332

    For bass, an 8' Saltstriker 15-40 graphite, 300 lexa.

    For bonita and barracuda, a plate of wings and a cold one in the galley waiting for the captain to move and find some real fish.

    Haha wings on a boat would be killer! In terms of the captain finding real fish... well buddy, locally that's all you get on the surface lol
    Very fun to catch, not as good as eating

    Hello,

    We always have a 6lbs trout setup on the boat to catch bait with a sabiki rig. If the barracuda or bonita show up I'll tie on a kastmaster just for fun. It's a blast, reminds me of catching bluegill when I was a kid. If they are blowing up on bait put on a top water bass lure.

    Yeah. Don't eat those bonies or scooters. They taste terrible. Especially smoked, grilled, or pan blackened. They are especially disgusting as leftovers made into po' boys.

    My go-to bass rig is a Shimano Chronarch 150 HG ( graduated from my older Black Magnums) mated to a 1980s vintage Shimano SM 1652 (or 1653) trigger stick. I scoured E-bay for years to find 4 of these rods to use as back-ups to my original BM 1653 I bought back in the early 80s.
    As for the other 2 Bs...I use a 220 newell mated to an 870 or 270

    3 rods minimum for me (jig, plastic/small jig, bait).

    Hell, ask a bass guy and he might have 5-10 just for them alone.

    That being said, if they are eating the iron at all the jigstick will usually the rod in my hand.
