Thank you!Mostly likely will be fishing south, including Cedros or Benitos. If you have it, bring along a heavy rod that can do triple duty for trolling, dropper loop at the island, and big BFT in American waters. Plan on fly lining for YFT and YT on paddies. Bring along some iron to yo yo for YT on the paddies and at the island. I like to bring a 25# rig for fly line, a 40# rig for fly line, a 50# rig for jigging, and an 80# for the heavy rig. If you want to, toss in a bass outfit for the island (sometimes gets used, but usually not). Bring a second 40# rig if you have it.
Have fun and post a report!
I assume you are thinking about how much lead to bring for your dropper loop. It might be as deep as 200-300 feet. Depending on current, it might take as much as 16 oz to hold the bottom. If you have it, bring along a couple of weights each at 4, 8, 12, and 16 oz. However, lead is expensive and heavy to schlep onto the boat. The boat will have lead to sell you and the prices are about the same as the landing tackle shops. So don't overbuy at the tackle store.Thanks so much. Can you give me a sense of how deep we'll be fishing?
