as we sailed i used a 200pound test line with a   magenta and pink lure for ocean fishing  trolled out  behind the  stern.  we caught bonito,  a skipjack tuna and a barracuda with this set up and had many  delicious dinners from our catch

i found it easier to boat my fish  this way, rather than with a rod and reel combo, as i used in gulf of mexico sailing trips.
