A good depth finder with speed and temp,Down riggers,planer boards,6-8 rods,many of the guys use a temp guage on the down rigger ball.

Lures,spoons,J-plugs,cut bait rigs, fly,squid. You'll need dodgers,for your cut bait rigs.

I'd go on a couple carters first suck some knowledge off the guides.

Don't forget your ship to shore radio.

Thanks in advance.

I'd go with a Cannon or a big john downrigger.

Don't worry about it. I would definately get a few guys together and do a Charter,especially if you don't know someone that knows how to "run the boat" and can help you out at first.

Most people use a trolling reel.

I use Penn's and Diawa's

You have to put alot of line on. In the summer you'll be going deep.

You might be able to get away with a big spinning reel when the fish are up or when flat lining like at this time of year.
