Since I've purchased my first HMS permit this year, I'd like to see some of the rigs you experts wouldn't dare leave port without. Also if you don't mind, I'd appreciate some info on trolling spreads as well.

Bill, I'll take anything that bites. But should I take different lures to target specific species?

Take a Stretch 30 for close inshore,
in case you can't get out to far.
The little dolphin love it!

I had the bright idea to try and use my Striper gear out there just to see if I actually need to invest in more lures, but I guess I should at least take a few proven lures with me. My rod/reel set-ups are also relatively light so I'm also considering a couple Penn 330's, but I want to at least get my feet wet before I run out and buy a bunch of tackle.

What se ye?


For now I have on the "lures to buy list"

cedar plug(any particular brand?)
green machine(what the hell is that?!)
strech 30

Bill- are your bally's real? If so, then do the fake one's do any good?

Bay tackle may catch something because anything is possible but its not the first choice. When trolling 5k or more you keep most of the lures on the top. Bmail me and maybe we can hook up I have alot of stuff sitting around that could get you started.

I make most of my own stuff. Wahoo wacker is a lure you can buy so when your trolling it goes deeper and stay at that depth.

Thanks for the offer TrophyPro I'll hit you up.

I went to Alltackle yesterday and looked around a bit, but I didn't find anything named "green machine". What does it look like?

I would skip the Penn 330. Levelwinds are no match for tuna or wahoo. I would look at the 114 senators or Tld 25s. A 114 combo is relatively cheap ($ 160) and you can use them for striper also.

Too late! I just placed an order from boatersworld.com for two penn 330 $99 specials, a "green machine" and a floating gaff. I'll pick up a cedar plug and a strech 30 in the next few weeks. Awhile back Bass Pro had an entire bin full of discounted strech 40's with a few odd color 30's mixed in. They were on sale for like $5. Wish I would've picked one up then.
