From 1 trawler
to another, I use a bridle
that hangs to the waterline. I then roll out another 10 to 15 ft of chain after the attachment point. This excess chain creates a loop that stays between the 2 bridle
lines. This loop of chain adds weight, think kellet, along with the lower attachment point (3ft off the water
instead of 8 ft off of the bow with a good steady pull), which aids in more lateral pull, which is a good thing. I use 1 inch braided line for the bridle and 1/2 in chain. Currently in the Exumas
been on the hook for 120 days. Paydirt weighs 35 ton.
