The RDTKL 9-line spread is a great overall spread. In fact, this is a typical tuna trolling spread for the North East Canyons. As you can see, we like to keep the spread tight. This is the standard configuration for Yellow and Longfin tuna. The Long Riggers are about 6 to 8 wakes back, and everything else keys off them. Keep the spread tight. If the tuna are boat shy, send the Entire SPREAD back, not just one or two lines. Remember, the spread is designed to draw multiple bites, break it up and you're likely to get single bites if any at all. It takes the whole spread to draw the attention of an entire school. This is how you get four to six lines down, and it could be your only shot all day. Some anglers insist on a WWB rig. If you must, you can add another Way Back line down center, running it about 200 to 300 Yards back. In this case we would recommend the 13" bird and daisy chain. It can be purchased separately. We would recommend that it be added to the spread and run WAY back. The other centerline should be run in the short shotgun position, aft of the short riggers but forward of the long riggers. This spread contains RDTKL Spreader Bars, tested and proven effective, designed and used professional fisherman.
