I have a 29 foot Twin Engine Boat, I like to do deep sea fishing (both trolling and bottom fishing), I joined fishing charters before, I need tips and advice from experts. I have all waypoints entered in my GPS. I have Penn Rods, not sure about what type of Lure or bait to use.

For bottom fishing, live bait is basically always best (whether it's pinfish, cigar minnows, sardines, etc) - though frozen squid and frozen cigar minnows do well for the cost and are what you always find on the major head/multiangler charters. Depending on the depth, I'd say from 4oz <100' to 8oz <150' should be plenty of lead for most applications - adding weight as you add depth accordingly; and regulations require in-line circle hooks these days. I'd recommend 5/0-8/0 as a general range depending on how big of fish you're finding.

Trolling depends wildly on the species, and I'll let others elaborate on that; but I know many around here use deep diving Rapalas or Mann's Stretches for kings around the area.

3 Easy Steps
1. Search for Capt Delynn and read his reports
2. Call Capt Delynn and book him to run your boat
3. Post a report on here of the monsters yall catch

1 trip with Delynn or any other guide like him and you will learn more info that you could ever imagine. More than you could learn in a summer trial and error.

Don't bother with Bass Pro Shop, go down to J&M and Sam's on Canal Road and get those guys to help you. There is a member on the forum that goes by Chris V that gives excellent advice and great reports.
