On our initial
jaunt across the pacific from Mexico to New Zealand (9000 miles) I caught a
total of three fish while sailing; a slight embarrassment and a blow to my
survivor instinct to say the least. After stocking up on lures and hand lines
in both Tonga and then again in New Zealand, we finally started catching fish
when we returned to Fiji. The key was running multiple lures and adding surface
action increased our catch rates even more.
Game fishing boats
typically run 10-12 lines with a teaser, but have the added benefit of
outriggers to keep lines separated and in control etc. Well the good news for
cruising boats is we usually have multiple things hanging off the back of the
boat, which gives us plenty of points for release clips to attach more lines.
Youíve got stern cleats and stanchion bases down low, stern rails a little
higher up and the back stay even higher. If you have an arch, you are sitting
under a configurable fishing machine. Catamarans, I canít even begin to tell
you how many lures you could run.
