On my last trip on the Supreme there were times when the skippies and small yellowfin were full on at the 23. And being used to the long trips I find myself not wanting that size, since I have all the fish at home. I used my 150# Izor on a 50 and fishing gumdrop size skippies for larger grouper. I clip the tail and deploy into the frenzy of small tuna. Here were the results... One honest grouper bite due to the scratch marks, that did not catch the hook. A couple of instant 12/0 7691 hook cut offs, larger model wahoo. A 30 second look at the largest black marlin I have ever seen that reared it's head out close to the boat. And while I tried to set the hook as hard as i could several times the skippie still connected to the hook came back. Still a huge thrill. What worked... When skippies are thick, always think of them as chum for bigger fish. Clip the tail fins and sink the bait with the current then work the bait back to the boat. What i will try next time... A very sharp hook, like a Jobu, in black to distract wahoo from targeting the hook and to stick in a marlin's bill.
