Thanks for the props, Captain Aaron Barnhill on the Shogun! "If you are in any of the upcoming trips make sure you bring the right gear. Two speed reels are a must! No short whippy fiberglass rods. An ideal setup would be a Penn Torque 40 loaded with 80# spectra and a 6.5-7.5 medium heavy or heavy rod rated to fish 50-80# line. That would be your 60# Flurocarbon setup. Next size up would be a Penn International 16 or comparable with 100# spectra and a 6-7 foot rod rated to fish 60-100 for your 80# Flurocarbon. Bring a 100# trolling outfit for fishing the dropper loop and plenty of 16-20 oz sinkers. Any questions about gear email [email protected] and I will do my best to get back to you. -Captain Aaron"
