    I've done a couple overnight trips out to the canyons. Caught some yellowfin and lost some. Not for the fainthearted but fun. I prefer inshore saltwater any day.

    The bands are used for flatlining the close plugs.

    Taste just like mako or swordfish.

    My friend that owns this boat installed a green stick last year, finally getting the bugs worked out. Did have a knock down this trip, but no fish yet.
