Simple fishing set-up

My cruising partner is (or thinks she is) keen on throwing out a line as we cruise from place to place in the north east: Buzzards bay, across the gulf of maine, Nova scotia, etc. I share the interest but know in my heart of hearts and extrapolating from experience, that the fish somehow know it's me at the other end of the rod and have a good underwater laugh when I drop a hook. So, if you were going to set up tackle for dragging behind the boat, what specifically would you use? A yoyo? x ft of 100 lb test monofilament? A flashy lure? Any suggestions would be welcome!

I use 3 boat lengths of thin rope, one boat length of heavy monofilament line as a Leader , and a fishing lure

The rig is stored on a dog bone

The best lures are small and cheap with s very strong hook

No spinning lures no treble hooks

A jig type lure Those rubbery tails work great

The most effective ones have a hole in the head
This hole blows a bubble stream , comet, as the lure is pulled thru the sea

You also need s pair of work gloves to pull in the line

If your fish are toothy you may need a wire leader

Most fish are caught in the whitewater of your wake ,,

When sailing , a reach The end of the main boom is a very good fish line Leed

Keeps the lure out of the wake and in the whitewater

Re: Simple fishing set-up

I'm using Cuban yoyo. 100 feet of250 lb test. Heavy swivel onto steel leader onto another heavy swivel with clasp.(easy to switch out lures)
For lures I'm having the most luck with red/white cedar plugs. Friends are out performing me with bubblers. (squid lure with flat front to cause turbulence)
If you see flying fish leaping towards the boat, something is chasing them. That's when we get the most hits.
Play with it, have fun. Catching something can really liven up a long passage.
