What size hooks/Baits to use with this mixed sizes of Tuna now at OI?
So I plan to make my migration from Utah next week, plan to fish OI and HI for a week if possible.
With those Giant bluefin slobs hanging around and yellowfin mixed, what kind of spread would you run? Should I Use bigger hooks/baits on my heavier rods?
Where in the spread would you place the heavy-est two rod/reel set-ups. Long vs. short? Flat line ect?
Heavier rods (80's) for sure unless you want an epic long battles. Put biggest rods on long rigers and run 200 to 300 ft back if not crowded. Naked, sea witches (Crystal, Pink, B/W) and I always have one B/W islander in the mix. Run 5 rods so in case the poop hits the fan you do not get spooled while 3 fish swim in different directions. Medium and large ballyhoo with #9 or 10 hooks work well. Be ready to JIG!
