Rods: 7-foot trolling rods or 5 1/2- to 6-foot stand-up rods in 80-, 50-, 30- and 20-pound class.
Reels: Conventional reels with large line capacities and smooth drags matched to the rods.
Lines: Dacron lines with monofilament top shots: 24 feet of 450- to 500-pound monofilament leader, with 12 feet of doubled line for marlin and tuna. The Aussie braid is more popular here than the Bimini twist for connections.
Hooks: 7/0 to 11/0, depending on lure size.
Lures: Hawaiian-style acrylic plungers in black, purple, silver and pink variations, along with soft plastic swimmer- and chugger-style lures.
Baits: Ballyhoo rigged behind jet lures. Bait-and-switch is also a popular tactic for sails.
