A Trip to the Rigs

Florida Sportsman member: Billme Packed up the FN PAIR-A-DICE and headed for the rigs again last weekend. The tuna bite was not what we had hoped for, but we managed a few and turned the trip into a mixed bag bonanza with dolphin and wahoo.

Where to Fish for Tarpon

Update on where and when to go for silver king action in the Sunshine State. Where do you want to fish for tarpon this year? For Florida boat-owners and even many shore fishermen, the answer may be as simple as, how long do you want to wait for them to arrive?

Wind-on Swivels

There is one time where we always include a swivel in our wind-on leader system: when we are chunking dead bait for yellowfin tuna. Unlike all of the other wind-on leader applications such as trolling and live baiting, retrieving chunked dead bait can cause severe twist in your main line and leader. To help reduce line twist, we connect the wind-on leader to the main line with a high quality barrel swivel.
