Use heavier rods, reels and line and use boat to pull them away from the rig.

You have to use very stout gear around any of those rigs that are right on the shelf. There are tons of big AJs on them and I rarely use less than 80lb line when fishing them there. My live bait setup for fishing those rigs is a 50W with 200lb braid and a 200lb leader. We leave it in the holder and drive off after hookup.

For jigging, rotate anglers and drop with only a couple rods at a time. Whoever is at the wheel needs to pay attention to the rod tips and pull the boat away at the second of a hookup and do it quick. This is the only way I'll fish for AJs there.

Stout gear is the for sure way to pull the big AJ off the rig and winch them in without ever taking the rod out of the rod holder. Fishing it with a Capt like MikeV is a little different since we all bring our own gear or borrow a rig from him.

Like other posters said, Mike keeps an eye on us yahoo's and eases the boat away from the rig and bottom junk in one area when we hook up. Then it's up to the individual angler to battle the beast in their own fashion. Various models of spinning and conventional gear are used depending on personal preference.

After you have done it a few times, you will gain the skills you need on the lessons learned curve. I recommend not using high dollar jigs around the rigs unless you don't mind loosing them, sometimes a bunch in a day. Once you get the hang of it , you will know which set up is your go to gear. Tight lines to you.

Yes an 8000 pound warn winch works wonders. All kidding aside use heavier jigging gear with 100 lb braid and pull the fish away from rig with boat. That is the only way to not spend a small fortune in lost jigs.

Don't drop down right beside that rig either. You've got to realize the legs don't go straight down 350 ft to the sand. They go out very wide from the rig, probably 200 ft or more as they go down for stability. As others mentioned, try to use the boat to pull them away and use heavy gear. If you let them pull drag and run on you, you will lose every time. That's my favorite rig to fish hands down.

I've got a Trinidad 40 with a stout rod. I've got 150lb power pro and just like chris said I use a 200 lb leader. Drag tightened down all the way, rod in holder and pull out with the boat.

Don't sell that Trinidad 40 reel..!! They are a beast of a reel and hard to come by.

I have the TN40N Narrow model with spring loaded AR dogs and Carbontex drags. There isn't much these reels won't stop and the anti reverse system is rock solid!!
