    I think that the green stick technique is illegal in Southern California. Correct me if I'm wrong.

    I have no idea. Hopefully someone can chime in with that info. I don't see how dangling yummies from a greenstick is any different from dangling them from a kite though.

    What size yummee are you using? Is that color Blue-Silver or Blue-Crystal?

    What size Treble and 4X or 5X are you using on your Yummee? I am rigging some up this week 5' 300 lb.for my leader going to put one out on the next Albacore trip up here in Nor Cal.

    Large size yummies, not the smaller one. Trebles are 5/0 4X strong Owners. Rigged on 300lb leader. Good luck

    Swivel is the release stop if you are stacking two or three release you will need the type or release that slides over swivel you will have different size swivels.

    We have a snap swivel that is attached to the end of the kite line to which the kite itself is attached and removed. 100 feet below the kite clip is a loop formed in the kite line (spectra). This loop will go through the kite rods guides and can be wound onto the kite reel spool as no release is attached at this point. When letting the kite out and the "loop" comes off the spool and clears the last guide on the kite rod the release clip, which also has a snap swivel, is clipped to the loop in the kite line. When pulling the kite in the release clip is removed allowing the loop to be wound back onto the spool.

    Can you post a picture of your rig? Specifically the snap swivel to the clip?

    Here you go. Just form a small loop in your kite line about 100 feet below the kite itself using a dropper loop knot, surgeons loop or spiders hitch and attach release clip to that small loop using the snap swivel. With the release clip removed small loop will go through guides and on and off reel no problem. You can even have multiple loops to attach multiple release clips to run multiple baits. Aftco clip modified with crimped mono harness and snap swivel. Very easy to make...

    A small balloon is the way to go, attach with a thick rubber band, don't reel it into the release! Dark color balloons are best. 20-30 feet above lure. It will also set the hook for you before you get tight to the fighting rod.

    When trolling the yummee flyer do you have your drag set to the full strike position when strike is set to 30 lbs of drag on shimano tiagra? or do you ease back on the drag a bit until after you are hooked up? Thanks

    The leader isnt long enought that you attack the release clip after all the swivel and what not so its just straight to your mono leader connected to your braid
