TACKLE

Sea Angler (UK) - - Boat Angler -

The tra­di­tional set-up for pol­lack fish­ing used to be a 12/20lb-class boat rod fea­tur­ing a mul­ti­plier reel loaded with monofil­a­ment or braid.

Many an­glers still use such gear, al­though in re­cent years, ad­vances in tackle man­u­fac­tur­ing have pro­duced ex­cel­lent spin­ning rods and fixed-spool reels that have been specif­i­cally de­signed for fish­ing for var­i­ous species of hard-fight­ing sport fish through­out the trop­ics.

As a re­sult, an in­creas­ing num­ber of an­glers are now us­ing spin­ning out­fits to fish for pol­lack, even in depths of wa­ter of sev­eral hun­dreds of feet over off­shore wrecks. Not only are th­ese out­fits more than up to the chal­lenge of tak­ing the largest pol­lack, but they de­liver su­perb sport with th­ese hard-fight­ing fish.
