I have kept in a deep freeze and used over two seasons (have a few left for what would be three) but I would not suggest trying that in a defostable freezer. They offer pre-rigged which for me were great, but the standard mono leaders and hooks were light for the fish that showed SMV last season.
That's great, thanks for the info. I would be looking to grab a case or two if anyone did a group buy. If not Ill contact Falmouth Bait and Tackle, I already contacted them about bluefish chum.

I would be interested in three or four packs if anyone was interested in splitting a case.

Folks, looking to add a couple of outfits to my spread and got to wondering what folks are using. I'm running 50's and have 80 available (kind of think this is to much), but was wondering if maybe I could get away with 30's loaded with 130 hollow and a 100 topshot.

So what say ye.... (these rigs would be used south of the vineyard)

one day last year we went 4/4 in the fleet pulling 8oz joe shutes about 200yds behind the boat. these were on 30's loaded with 100lb power pro and a short (10yds) fluro leader. the rest of the fleet had a hard time scratching out a single bite. i think this was because our baits were so much deeper than everyone else not including the guys running planers.

These days you can get 500-600 yards of line on a 30 and easily get 30-40# drag. That's enough for anything short of a 400# fish. South of the Vineyard, that's 98% of the fish you will see.

Christian always has cases available early in the season and always give a fair price. I'm going to grab one next week when I'm down. He has plenty now and never sells last years bait.

I do the same. He is a good guy to deal with or just tell fish stories with.

Have a look at the Shimano Talica 25II or the Okuma Andros 16II. New generation of reels designed for braid -- already caught some big fish on these and they have been fantastic at literally 1/2 the weight of the previous stuff...

An Aluminum 30LB outfit with braid is the new 50, some guys would even say a tuned up 16 is tough enough as well.
