Have a team meeting in advance, either at the dock or on a practice day, to plan out who exactly will clear the lines, along with the manner and order they’re cleared in. Will the captain be circling up trying for more bites, or will the anglers be clearing lines quickly to make a fast catch? Are only the anglers clearing lines, or are the mates clearing also? Should the long baits or the short baits be brought in first? These are the details that the top teams determine ahead of time and practice as often as possible.
