I went out on a local 3/4 day boat last week....hoping to hook up on some cuda and yt. I bought a butterfly jig and decided to try it out because no one was get hit on the bait, so i thought what could it hurt. Started off the day using a 90g squid jig. I got a few macks and landed two halibuts....i was totally surprised by how good my new jig was working. Later i got a cuda and threw the jig out again and got slammed by a yellow. I got the yt to the surface and it got nailed by a seal....i was pissed. The seal got my fish and my new jig. Over all it was a good day on the water and i was amazed by the buttefly jig. What i need help on is picking out a new set up for butterfly jigging and advice on new jigs to get? I got about $200 for a rod and $300 for a reel. I have been looking at the trevela jigging rods and a torium reel. Let me know if i am on the right track...or if there is a better set up. Also if anyone knows about the seminars on the butterfly jigging system. Any help would be great. Thanks.
