This floating bird spreader bar was developed for deep drop trolling in the So. California bluefin tuna fishery. It is based around a 13" hard foam bird. The bird mold casts the bottom of the bird like the bottom of a v-hulled boat.
The bird runs straight and true in your spread even in rough water and holds the bar up out of the water. It is rigged with 11" bulb squid, 2 tip birds for splash and a trailing hooked stinger. We have developed custom colors like Humboldt and Natural/Brown Caramel. Please contact us for custom colors.
There are two tuna birds at each end of the bar to provide stability and commotion. This bar can be used anywhere on the West or East Coast but was designed to solve the problem of deep dropping in California. This bar is successful trolled anywhere in the world.
Rigging - The bar is titanium, bird is high density urethane foam, the mainline is Momoi 250#, aluminum sleeves for bench crimping, AFW 300# ball bearing swivels, chafe guard on all connections and an 8/0 Southern Tuna SS hook by QuickRig.
