This summer I want to set a long line with about 100 hooks, from a boat, using circle hooks, for whatever comes along.
Does anybody want to share their experience doing this? Any hints or tips?
I'm wondering about what bait (thinking squid strips or frozen sandeel),
how to store the baited traces or try baiting on the water,
whether to shoot the line parallel to or perpendicular to the shore,
what sort of ground (I'm thinking a sandy beach area known for flatties)
whether to use a 'tub' method where lineis coiled with hooks attached or use hook traces that clip on with swivel snaps to the main line between stops-I think I want to use the swivel clip method after seeing this video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=niX8-qwlsEE , but it looks very slow.
