I really want to be able to take my kids out and catch fish when we do this.... is there something anyone recommends? We are limited on how far we go, I have a 18.5 edge water dual console with a 150 yahama outboard. I believe we would be good out to 10 miles on calm days, I ordered a sd card for wrecks and reefs, a handheld vhf radio, I have a pretty good fish finder and a I pilot trolling motor I believe 70 pounds. My question is should I get a. Anchor to stay on the bottom, how should we rig the bait and what should I use as bait? I heard carolina rigging was pretty good.
Last time in pc we trolled and fished with a Bonita we caught from earlier with jig heads. It worked pretty good but the hooks were hard to take out on the many trigger fish we caught,
Any advise would be great as far as bait, rigging, anchor or i pilot will work?
