The Saucy Side planer speader bars are the best tuna catchers you can find. It's side planing plate easily moves the spreader bar away from your boat wake while trolling so you do not need outriggers. You can place it on either side of your boat by flipping it over, making no other changes to it. Main idea is to get it away from your prop wash so it is easier for distant tuna to see it and go into attack mode.
Three Saucy Sputterbird teasers behind the bar rotate to add action to all of the squid lures attached to the bar, especially the last one, the "stinger" down the middle. Tuna and mahi cannot ignore all this action as it looks like a feeding bait school distracted from predator fish. Easy pickings!!
An optional foam filled squid is placed under the spreader bar to elevate it from the water surface, making it move further away from your boat and reducing "bar splash" that is a giveaway. This foam squid can also be provided with a "Canadian Breakaway" rig that will separate the main line from the bar so it will be easier to land your fish. This is especially important when you have a big tuna hooked and it wants to get away from your boat.
A variety of sizes and color patterns are available, samples are at this show and links to my Sputterbird website can easily be made if you are looking for something different than we have here. Prices here are 15% below the website prices but if you enter a discount code available at our booth you will get it as well. Samples of each color and size is in the booth and I may be able to rerange somethind different if you do not see what you want. Smallest squid size is 9" long, largest is 18" long. Some of the squid are colored and constructed to look like a mackerel or herring, some are glow in the dark, some have metallicstrips.
Combine a speader bar assembly with a "stinger" of your choice, or use one you already have by attaching it to the snap swivel hidden in thelast center squid.
Rigging line for the center is 400# clear Jinkai so you can handle a fish at the boat without getting line cuts. Other squid lines are usually 300 # Jinkai to get more motion. The 400" jinkai clear passes through a three line spindle and reattaches to the bar with solid crimps so they are extra strong. A third 400# line runs from this spindle to the other end of the bar to complete the bar harness.
We will see you in our "Sputterbird" booth #416. You will see a couple of shortened squid bars with side planers on display at the isle.
