We will be moving to Pensacola from Eastern Long Island within the year. Very excited as well as ready to relearn. We will enjoy bottom fishing but want to target Billfish when opportunity comes. Is 2 rods 2 dredges and a spinning set up good or up the rods. I fish on a Bertram 20 Bahia Mar and up to 4 rods are all good but dredges eat up some space. Thanks for all the the help.

I am looking to sailfish. I do fish NE and i will be burried in the Bert so to answer you most definitely the boat is going south. I do not think i will be using my 50s for sails so i am looking to set up a rig. I do have custom 4/0 senators i shark with that make tons of smooth drag. I have narrows stds and wides that make 50# of drag so at 10# and 30# line they are like silk

Jack I guess the easiest way to xplain would be like a spreader bar in 3D lol. Instead of a flat single bar it is an x using 2 bars or sometimes 3 and teasers. They are drug and the spread is behind. I use them tuna fishing as well.

i don't do much trolling so i guess that's why i was dumb to the word.
thanks for the info. i believe i have seen those but i don't know all of the names of the lures when it comes to trolling.

Most boats here are trolling 5-7 rods (30w-130w setups)with a assortment of skirted lures with and without ballyhoo, diving plugs and high speed trolling. Targeting selfish is going to be pretty hard in our area but not impossible better change targeting marlin just my 2 cents

Blue and white marlin and both can generally be found in the same areas. Good area to start is the nipple and areas south. (Kinda like the bedroom)
