  2. Not alot of bunker around and was wondering will blues eat bluefish chunks ? And also is a live bait hook better to use then an octopus hook ?
  3. thanks CCB
  4. I'm using 50 Lb.wire and how light should my drag be set ? If reel engaged and drag is heavy hook can rip out the mouth ?
  5. Thanks for the suggestion's !
  6. Thanks , so for instace I can use 25 Lb. braid and 40 Lb. leader for fluking
  7. Question : If I'm using 30 Lb. mono leader does the braid have to be 30 Lb. or can the braid be less ?
  9. In dash or top mounts included , In dash mounts makes the unit removable. No transducer and no cable's ( 24.00 cable from garmin ) It's a 2006 model that works great
  10. Main to swivel to leader to tying leader to solid ring ?? Or use a knot from main to leader ??
  11. Tie to the solid ring

If you are doing it to be able to switch out lures well your just doubling up, the split ring does exactly that. I just carry split ring pliers with me and it takes all of 10 sec to change jigs. The point is to change Jigs quickly , Above post about seems to be the best way with split ring pliers
  13. Using lb. braid and I put a 40 lb. top shot of fluorocarbon . Can I use a snap swivel or tie leader to butterfly
