Default Deep Runner Daisy Chain for BFT

Has anyone tried any weighted daisy chains like the sterling tackle deep runner 48 ? Thinking about putting one with a bally stinger way back next trip... cant find many reviews though

I think we ran one on our last trip, but it didn't get any hits even though we caught upwards of 25 tuna (most released).

I think the problem was we weren't running it far enough back. Apparently it needs to be waaaay back to have a chance to sink properly, at least at yellowfin speeds.

I'm rigging up some bridles so I can quick release planers. Seems like a better (and cheaper) way to get baits deep while still having a wind on leader..

I think I had the same issue not running long enough. I read people saying 200-250 yards. I only have 50W setups right now running 100 yard topshots ontop of 130 braid, so questions are A.) do I need to run an 80W on something 200-250 out which from what I read is targeting a big fish out back B.) if my braid gets wet is it visible and spooking the fish off my entire spread?

I wouldn’t run a bally behind it. The heavier chains or lures ahead of the Bally’s seems to really beat them up in no time. Just my .02

agreed on this - try using a Ronz tail on it - secure it tightly w/ a ziptie.

I run 24oz shute style lures in front of bally hoo or squid without issue of that. You do have to up size the hook significantly which can make rigging a challenge for the rigging impaired. Caught 2 fish yesterday on those very lures. Neither of which were commercial sized with the biggest at 70"+/- For the op you can rig a #8 planer for what you want or use a downrigger set up of your choice to get some depth. Putting a daisy chain style bait that is not on wire will get expensive now that we have water that will support wahoo here. I know one 110# fish was caught Saturday and at least 2 others in that class lost

we got nice 40” class fish on hoos way back and hits on other divers in close this last weekend... i’d keep some wide trackers out and up the middle try almost anything that doesn't sound crazy. why not? you never know. the big “problem” is bluefish - why i wouldn’t use a ronz... unless you bring a lot of tails and check it often.
