I'm going to be rigging the boat with a green stick this spring and am starting to accumulate rigging and other items for it.

So the question is which squid brand and sizes are preferred for big eyes and yellow fins as well as favored hooks. Same thing for For bluefins.

I know I'll have to set up a second line for the bluefins.

Thanks

Squids

I use 12" squid nations for giant bft, and I especially like the Rasta color.... for a few reasons :D. I think Pink is good too. My hooks are a mix of super heavy-duty trebles and Owner 12/0 Jobus. 500LB Jinkai clear mono on the drops connected with 1000lb test stainless mini biners & 730LB main line on the bandit reel.

Biggest hook you can get in there and make sure its a 3X or stronger... Didnt think about the treble but did think about the double hooks I always see overseas... Hmm I have to imagine they have stronger than normal trembles.

Carl must be holding out!!! I like those colors and I'll be there in May... I've picked up some things from him last year there, artwork is great there!!!

Trebles, let me rethink that, as the mates are always hooking themselves, and YOU KNOW HOW I MEAN ON THIS BOARD... lol

the rest is up to your own individual style and left for your imaginations .... we are talking about fishing here . ya have to be innovative and use your past experiences with rigging in general . these are just rigged for the shop not necessarily ready to go
