Clip Your Teasers
Capt. Tim Richardson, Tradition
One Star * Supplies Needed: Blacks and/or Roller Troller release clips
Capt. Tim Richardson’s been fighting the weed as well as the marlin this year during his season in the Dominican Republic so he came up with this way to run his teaser halyards through release clips off the captain’s chair on the bridge. This way the lines are right in front of him so all he has to do is give the halyards a shake to clear any grass. It’s also easier to grab when teasing a fish in by hand. He uses a Roller Troller for the regular squid chains but recommends a Blacks red clip for the Flippy Floppy Thing due to the increased amount of drag it produces in the water.
