Thanks for all the stellar tips. Since I only have three rods to bring, I'll rig the 3 pound into a 20lb setup. The reel has 30lb mono topshot and 65lb braid backing on it, so I'll just use a 20lb flouro leader.
Heading out on the 2.5 day on the Eclipse this Thursday. Aside from occassional half-day trips, I don't fish on sportboats. I also have NEVER caught any tuna or yellowtail for that matter, so very excited to possible catch three or four new species!
I've mostly got my tackle squared away (30, 40 and 50lb setups, knife jigs and irons, variety of hook sizes and rubber core sinkers, flouro leader, etc.).
What I'm looking for advice on is the other miscellaneous things I should be prepared with for a multi-day trip that one might not think of. Tips on sleeping on a boat? How much cash to bring for various things? Beer is available on board, but are you allowed to bring other libations? Clothing tips?
Appreciate any last minute advice to make this a very successful trip!
Trip was awesome!How was the trip???
