To Maui Miles:
The best way to catch sails is live porgys or croakers. Slow troll them over reefs and wrecks in about 150 to 250 feet.
Drag 2 free line and 2 with a 2 ounce egg weight at 2 or so knots.
Blue or clear water can be important. Also first light to about 9:00 AM.
after which the bite slows a lot. It is also hit and miss, one in 8 boats hooks up on average but knowing what and where + having the right bait and gear should reduce the odds to one in 3 boats.
Ballyhoo also works with reduced odds
