Default Balloon's

Has anyone ever put a live lady fish, hard tail, or blue fish on a balloon live and sent it out? Ever have any luck, and did you put it in a rip so it swam past the sand bar?

Live ladyfish under a balloon is a tarpon killer - in the right places.

If the wind plays ball I would definitely do it. Tie enough balloons on and make sure you have a good steel leader tied on a strong hook or two. Hold tight.

That's how I rig them up in Indian Pass. Catch plenty of sharks too.

Yeah, I love the topsail park. Plus it's pretty productive for others at times of year.
