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.

Good advive, go with whatever you can get away with as far as leader.

we have landed tuna to 140#s on 5/0 mustads that are as big as your thumb.

drag, just remember not to set it to 1/3 of you main line, nut rather your weakest point(leader in this case). Also if you have never felt 25#s of drag dont set it there or your new toys may find the bottom of the ocean in 6-8s.

Russ you may have had 130# line but only 80# leader.

Go catch em they are there.
