Ill be going on the Pesca on a 36 and 60hr trip in 11/10 and the 30th respectively. I know it aint the Big E but supposedly even the 36 is heading the floater direction so its all fisshing haha.
At any rate what size fluoro should I use for my chunk leaders, and what size and brand hooks? Im ust going to chunk with my SLD and jig wit my LX and might bring my SX just cause in case we really dont fish the floaters also. What lb. fluoro should i use as leaders for my jigs? How many jigs do you all bring when you go out. I just want to get 2-3 diamonds then maybe 5 of assorted colors...any favorite colors?

Thanks alot, I know this is a lot of Questions but after I pick up my check next week after a double back im off to do some buying at roys.

pay attention to what is being used currently with the reports. I try to use the largest line I can, while still getting bit. I keep 2 spools of flouro leader..one at 60#, and one at 80#...
Jigs.... lots, and lots, and lots, and lots..... OTI has theirs priced right. Its hrad to even buy a diamond jig, then assist hook, then the rings.... for the same- you can get a ready to go OTI "pretty" jig.... cudas can be brutal.. learn when to stop wasting jigs on them and try something else.... I am an "action" man... I like casting and winding... not big on chunkin. I like the swimbaits, and poppers. Never really liked the flyers.... not yet anyways... I am still green and have a LOT to learn as well....
what are you gonna do if the sld fails??? 3 rods are easy to keep in the milk crate....
LOL!! dont worry about greeeen... I get lucky and catch tuna too!!!
