Any advice is greatly appreciated as to how you would fish these, either the same, heavier for some rods, lighter for others... if you say I should change something, please specify as to why, and how I should. Cant say I’ll use every piece of advice but it will all be taken into consideration

I would suggest you use a heavier outfit for bait. You might be using 8 ounces of lead and catching several Mack’s at a time will cause lots of tangles on lighter gear. I’m not familiar with the outfits on the lower range of your gear. Just make sure you have rigs for fishing 30, 40, and 50# bait. Hopefully you won’t need much or any 25# gear. I’d make sure I have a 50# set up for yo yoing.

    not crazy enough yet
    That's only 9 setups?

    You can easily fish them all on a standard 7 day.
