cgaskell is on a distinguished road
not much point trying to be sporting if you are looking for a main course, so the yoyos are by far the simplest way to go. i have caught numerous kingfish and small tuna trolling small green squids with lead heads. use a rubber bungee tied to a cleat or stanction and a clothes peg on a piece of string - shorter than the bungee - to give you a warning. works perfectly, the only problem is dealing with the fish when you get it on board. i have tried filleting them in a bucket holding them by the tail - not recommended - and eventually settled for a 5 x 2 feet rubber matt. don't step (read slip) on the matt when it's wet though!
