What's your favorite setup for the 3 B's?
(Bass, Bonito, Barracuda)
3 b's = bacon ,beer and boobs
870 with a Shimano 15/30.
3 different rods...
Daiwa Seagate 20 on a 7'6" Californian Tri Helix rod rated 12-30lb.
30lb braid/ short15-20lb mono leader.
Curado 300e and a turners California rod 8' 15-30 I bought for 40 bucks.
It's my go to setup for just about anything.

Calstar GFDH800xl Newell 229 for bait. But I would always rather catch them on the iron so 690J and Newell 332
Exactly. It's all about personal preference.
Phenix m1 8'2 20-40lb
Penn torque 12
The 3 P's
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.
I'll take wide open "3-B's" any day. But a plate of wings and a cold beer aint bad either!
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
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.
800M Lexa 400 and a Cousins 808 and Lexa 300
