This day April, Krista and I fished with Capt. Jason Stock for Wreck permit. We used a pretty heavy out fit since they tend to run into the wreck and cut you off.
Heavy Rod 7’6″ to 8″
5000 to 8000 series reel with 50lb braid
4′ to 6′ of Leader material 40lb Flouro
Mustad Demon circle hook 3/0 – 6/0 depending on the size of you live crab.
You must use a circle hook as they will hook the fish themselves with out gut hooking the fish.
