Recommended Fishing Tackle:

NOTE: BRAIDED LINE is NOT permitted for bait fishing on Tuna trips. If there is braided line you must have at least 200 yards of Mono Top-Shot.
 Braided line may be used for “jigging only” as long as you are not interfering with the chunking lines. (Captains decision is final).
 Bait provided is: Sardines and Butterfish.
 If you want to catch live bait it is recommended to bring a light spin outfit and squid jigs.

Tuna Rods and Reels - One stand-up type tuna rod with a Penn 6/0 or 2-speed 30 or 50 conventional reel (60 to 80-lb. test monofilament line), plus one 7-foot tuna jigging rod with Penn 4/0 or equivalent reel (60-lb test monofilament or 65 to 80-lb test braided line)

Tuna Tackle - 50, 60 and 80-lb test fluorocarbon leader material, barrel swivels (provided), 5/0 to 8/0 chunking or circle hooks (7/0 chunking hooks provided), 6 to 8-oz hammer finish diamond jigs, 1oz to 8oz egg sinkers, 8 to 16-oz bank sinkers, rubber bands.


Mahi Rods and Reels - One light to medium spinning rod (20-25lb test monofilament or 30-50lb braided line) for Mahi

Mahi Tackle - 1/0 and 2/0 hooks, and assorted small lures and jigs

Squid & Bait Rods and Reels - One light spinning rod and reel for squid and bait fishing (12 to 15-lb monofilament)

TACKLE CAN BE PURCHASED ABOARD THE BOAT

 Fish on the bottom with a rig similar to a fluke rig.

Usually one hook tied to a dropper loop close to the sinker, 18” to 24” leader. A high-lo rig may also be used.
