I re-rig the Frenzy flyers with one or two good quality trebles. Cut the long leader down so that you can use a spinner and cast it kinda like a popper. It is often allowed to stay out as we move the boat back to a rig after completing a drift. You can make a daisy chain for trolling them. If you choose to slow troll a livey around a rig, put a flyer back way long.

The charter capts don't like to mess with down riggers much when bump trolling. They'll just move to another rig. I see nothing wrong sending a bait deep if you have anglers that are capable of helping.

Try to find Eddie Burger when you are there. If he is spending alot of time on the water, he'll know what is working.

The long jigs and topwaters were working very well a month ago. Good sized Mahi were easy to find.

I have seen them on fire and also cold as a cucumber. I have not figured any reason why.

Oh yeah, I forgot to mention that the Frenzy flyers are good from a kite too... or a helium baloon.

I would take along a pool net myself. Scoop up some live baits. :)

Yes, pool net. Get as big a head on it as you can find. Get one that telescopes too. It is hard to beat a live flyer for yft...

If you can get some light on or in the water you'll have even more bait around the boat. It is fun to drift away from a rig at night and pull the tuna with you.
