    Jumping on the Outer Limits for a private 1.5 day charter this Friday the 31 and wondering how I should rig everything up.


    Reels:
    Trinidad TN16 (full with braid either 50 or 65lb)
    Avet SXJ (full of 50lb braid)
    Avet MXL 6/4 (65lb braid & 40lb mono topshot)
    Avet MXL 5.8 (1/3 65lb braid - 1/3 50lb braid)
    Avet HXJ 4.2 (100 or 80lb hollow with 60lb knotless 10yard leader)
    Torium 30 (just about full of braid. Assuming 50-80lb not sure)
    Lexa 400wn hsp (full of braid. Assuming 50 or 65lb)

    Rods:
    Black diamond 909H deckhand (20-50)
    Black diamond 709xh (30-80)
    Phenix Pandora 7' (15-40)
    Phenix Abyss 1009 (20-60)
    Calstar 900L deckhand(15-30) wrapped by m&m
    Liquid stix 7' (20-50)

    Stocked with fluoro leaders from 10lb-80lb. As well as mono up to 60lb. Never been on anything longer than a 3/4 day and would love to get my first bft on this trip as that is what we should he targeting.

    all you need are some hooks...a few 1-6oz torpedo weights and some rubber bands for the weights...

    oh and 20 years experience picking and handling baits....know when to "fire" one and get a new one...if it's been 20 seconds and line isnt leaving your reel at at least a walking pace with tail twitches being felt....fire it and start over

    Haha so I'm gonna admit, I'm definitely a kook/googan as far as experience. But I pick up on stuff pretty quick. I have an idea how I wanna set everything up but figured if get some other opinions.

    I'm stocked in weights, hooks, and leader. Mainly just wondering what to set up with for top shots, and the whole rubber band sinker deal is new to me completely.

    Well I added an Avet LX6.0 to the arsenal. Oh and I also have a TLD30 2 speed. Can't wait to leave the dock tomorrow night.

    I am going out on a 1.5day Sunday night on the New Lo-An, I am taking a 30# for bait, 40# to throw jigs, 40#/50# bait and a 80# for flat falls. Hooks 1,1/0 and 3/0 with some sinkers.

    If you can get your hands on a smaller 40lb 2 speed setup, I’d highly advise that. You have plenty of light gear but don’t have the the combo that is doing to most work right now.

    Something like talica 12, Mak10, penn 25n, or better 30ld2 style reel. ~400 yards of 65lb braid, 30-50 yards of 40lb mono, 2-3’ 40lb fluoro and a smaller hook than normal is what has been the go to lately. 30-80lb rated rod, like a 700h-800xh or similar.

    You may be able to rent one.

    The TLD30 is too big. That could work for the flatfall, but would be next to impossible to fish a small bait with. We did get some bites mid day on them.

    Yep, quite a few of them actually. Mostly on the wind in. Not sure if that trend will stick or not. Really nice to hook that grade of fish on 60+lb tackle.
