Getting past the barracuda

Looking for any advice tips for sailboat fishing/trolling. I will be chartering in the South Pacific and likely in the BVI in the near future. My goal is to find methods to get past the barracuda and into tuna, wahoo, mahi mahi, and any other good eating fish.

BUY THIS BOOK!!!!

West Marine: Cruiser's Handbook of Fishing Product Display

The Cruisers Hanbook of Fishing is awesome. That guy is a freaking fish catching machine. It is the Holy Grail of Fishing for cruisers, no kidding. I learn something new everytime I open it. I think it has a place right beside Chapman's, Rousmanier's Annapolis Seamanship, and Nigel Calder Boatowner's Guide to Mechnaical and Electrical Systems. If you do not own all four of these books, get them before you leave.

Thanks Cruisingdad. Excellent recommendation. I also had someone pass this along as a inexpensive and easy way to hit the right depth when trolling. Curious if anyone else has tried these or anything similar.

And the best part is there is 4 chapters concerning multiple grill mounting all over your boat that CD really took to heart..


Just kidding ..

Glad to see your still posting CD..............and thats no joke.

"Go Simple...Go Large"

Relationships are everything to me..everything else in life are just tools to enhance them.


The purchase price of a boat is just the admittance fee to the dance...you still have to spend money on the girl...so court one with something going for her with pleasing and desirable character traits others desire as well... or you could find yourself in a disillusioned relationship contemplating an expensive divorce.
