Offshore Gear Breakdown:
An 8 weight with an intermediate line is a must-have and will cover all of your smaller fish such as tripletail, rainbow runners, schoolie dolphin, and more.
A 10 weight with an intermediate line will have you covered for the bigger albacore and blackfins.
A 12 weight with a floating line for sailfish or sharks, a 12 weight with a full sinking line for kingfish, wahoo, cobia and amberjacks.
20lb leaders work for most situations with a 30lb bite tippet for dolphin and tuna, or a 38lb single strand wire bite tippet for fish with serious teeth.
Pilchard and whitebait imitations make up the foundation of fly selection.
