I really can’t think of a compromise rig. We use as thin and sharp a hook as we can for sailfish whereas you need strength for GT.
Lorenz - rigging for sailfish is very very different to what we rig for GTs.

I already feared that, but hoped for some kind of compromise. I got a hit last year and lost one after some minutes this autumn.

Hi Brandon,
thank you. I'm quite happy so far  8)

I would suspect is is well capable of larger poppers. What's the heaviest/largest cup you have effectively worked?
The largest cup I fished with the PowerFight 711 is the Cubera 150, which worked very good. I didn't get a monster, yet, but it seems it was a good choice.

The Ripple will be well suited for what you want it for
Lorenz - rigging for sailfish is very very different to what we rig for GTs. On lures, we rig much smaller hooks for sailfish. There really isn’t a compromise rig that is suitable for both that I have seen. Sailies are a real chance capture. I’ve only had two when fishing for GTs in some 23 years of GT fishing
How do you rig your GT lures, when there is a chance for sailfish?
Is a single hook at the rear (maybe with some assist cord) increasing the chance to properly hook them up?

I joined this forum back in 2009 and its influence on my love for GT's cannot be over stated.
So much history, not to mention knowledge have graced these pages and hope to se GT Popping rise again.
General Topwater & Jigging Discussion / Buddy for Sokotra?

Is anyone interested in going to Sokotra/Socotra with a local tour operator and sharing a boat with me in e.g. march?

On the boats I have seen 3 people casting doesn't work very well. A groupsize of 2 or 4 would be ideal, to share a boat and a jeep (per 2 people) and to keep costs low. Living conditions there are very very basic. The people are poor, the boats cheap and the engines weak, but there are fish. Casting GT and a bit light game and jigging. We can mix in some sight seeing to take a break from casting.
