Bob I like your setup, still considering the outrigger program, but I'd be switching up to 7 rods if we did that (got the extra room, why not right?) and it'd be hectic.
I am thinking hard about switching to hollow core braid and doing the threaded topshot/knotless program on the casting rods. Definitely would use the fluoro you guys use.
We are doing sashimi grade fish care, so each is gaffed, brain spiked, then bled at the gill arches and behind the pectoral fin both sides. Then we slurry the fish to cool/bleed, then pack them in ice. Haven't been able to gill/gut them at sea yet because we've had good luck on trips and generally have been too busy pulling on fish.
Where are you home ported?
