Running 2 of these deep drop reels. 12V . Really pleased with my new battery configuration. They pull a lot of amps and after many hours no issues.

Looks like a lot of work, and a lot of fun. Commercial or personal use?

Use 13/0 circle hooks with a swivel in the eye, on a 10 or 15 hook vertical leader with hooks 18” apart and swivel between each. 6 lb piece of rebar (wrapped in rubber to protect paint) for a weight.

Fish buyers usually have bait for sale as a service for the fleet. This squid is $2 lb but I only used about 30 lbs. About 35 miles down the coast near Elizabeth Island. Small tides help. Cod spawned about 6-8 weeks ago and are now feeding heavily on sand lance. Puking up tons of it.

When I was a kid my Dad would get dried salted codfish in a wooden box. We made gravy with it. Good stuff.

When you choose the pic etc and it shows as a thumbnail, before you click all done, you'll see where it says Right, Left etc with arrows to the right of your thumbnail. I usually have to click the right arrow. The right arrow looks like what yours needed too

It would depend on what type of cod you are buying. Those are Pacific cod, I would bet. There are several types of cod sold in stores.
