    Default Long lining ?

    I am going to get into this this year. I was thinking of running a 8, 10, 12 and 14ft pole out of each side of the boat. Is this enough separation in the poles and should I only run 3 poles instead of 4? Using a hi-tek holder for the rods to sit in.

    I run 5',7',10',13' and 16 on each side. Just gotta watch your lines close.

    It is very addictive, just remember, do not stop for anything and make real wide sweeping turns.

    I use 3 on each side with a 4' gap (typically 12, 8 and 4ft). Then I run four rods off the back. I'm still pretty new to longlining, and this is what works for me. I'm sure some of the more experienced guys can run 4 or 5 on each side with less gap, but I get the lines crossed too often.

    I run 8, 12 and 16 pulling cranks. Sounds like I might better go for a little more separation. Might go 5, 8, 12 and 16. Keep the insight coming.

    I keep mine about a foot off the water to give me room to sweep a longer rod under a short to avoid tangles with spunky fish. Might not be ideal but works for me.

    when i tried it a few times last year if the wind was blowing it would blow my lines around,even added a small split shot to my line,others around me was having no trouble and they had their lines as close to the water as they could get them
