INCLUDES STINGER BAIT with 2 X SS hook! SPREADER BARS CATCH TUNA, MAHI MAHI, BILLFISH, KINGFISH and WAHOO. This bar with its larger profile on the water is built to bring up the big ones! Lite weight (3.1 oz) engineered for my "Splash", Stainless Steel spring bar with 5 drops. Teasers are 12 Sea Striker brand premium silicon squid with floats.Look at the color (I was watching a "Wicked Tuna" episode and noticed how close this matches the live mackerel bait). Hook bait is a matching weighted squid skirt with 1 3/4 oz weight, rigged on 48" clear 200# clear mono, with a 8/0 forged "Southern Tuna Style Stainless. Outside drops are rigged on 130 pound AFW Hi Seas Grand Slam clear mono. Center drop is rigged on 200 pound AFW Hi Seas Grand Slam clear mono. Center drop has thimble at top swivel connection, a single unbroken line past the bar (in chafe protection) to a bottom connection to the 250# ball bearing. Bridle is rigged like the bar: with 130# for the wings, and the 200# for the middle, perfectly balanced for easy fishing.
Birds are 5" hard plastic "exciter style rigged in-line on each line. Overall length from top 30 0# ball bearing swivel to end of the center line skirt is just under 9 feet. Heavy Duty bag, mesh back and clear plastic front with full length "hook & loop" bottom for easy loading, washing, drying and storage.
Spreader Bars with lots of birds make tuna go crazy! The purpose of a spreader bar rig is to look like a "bait ball". This draws fish to the "easy meal". The "hook bait" trailing the "bait ball" creates the illusion of a weaker member of the school that has become separated.This isolated squid becomes the fishes first target! I like the larger bait ball profile on the water.
When trolling for tuna on my small cc with 1 other fisherman, I have 2 spreader bars (off each corner) and 2 bird/daisy chain baits off the end of the outriggers, all the same color combination, to create the illusion of a sizable school of bait, being actively fed upon. Many customers pull 6 to 8 of these bars off the rod tip, and their outriggers.
I have been asked many times about using these on small boats, and I can confirm they work well on rods in gunnel rod holders, especially for tuna. How you position your bait is your business, but that is how it is done on my "mosquito fleet" boat. Now that you know a bit about what the spreader bar is trying to do, this is a new lite weight 36 inch spreader bar I make special with 3 double swivels on the bar. I make a bridle that helps keep the bar straight while fishing, while also allowing some movement of the bar.
Have you ever seen a school of bait fish hold exact position while swimming? Me either, that is why the bridle allows the bar to swing some, but not "out of control". The center lead of the bridle is continuous one piece, made with 200# clear mono, while the wings are 130#, to match the outside lines.I rigged this bar with a 5" hard plastic "Exciter" bird on each lead to create lots of splashing and commotion and 14 of the 9 inch shell squid as teasers with 2" floats inside. The 4 outside drops are on 130# clear mono. The center drop is rigged on 200# clear Grand Slam mono, as this will be the line to the fish if you connect the hook bait directly to the ball bearing snap swivel in the final squid on the center line. This item also includes 1 standard hook bait, a matching shell squid weighted, rigged on 42 of 200# clear mono, thimble and loop spring at the top, and 8/0 XX Southern Tuna Stainless Steel double strong hook. This bar pulls beautifully at speeds of 5 to 10 knots or more.
Add blue water you are ready to pull this in front of Tuna, Dolphin or Marlin. We use spreader bars for black fin and yellow fin tuna around deep water off shore oil platforms in the.
And for mahi mahi, wahoo and bill fish along weed lines in deep water and over structure. These have been very productive this year.
