    Guadalupe fishing 2021

    I have fished the Lupe about 8Xs and I loved it every time. Although the GWs got some, they were never an issue. Guess it's all about timing. It's just good to have this option.

    My 10 yr old son made a catch and cook video

    So, he's 10 yo, catches his own fish, fillets his own fish, cooks his own fish, and hosts the show. Is he for hire?

    Great fishing! You might want to delete that Fishdope app pic. They really frown on that sort of thing.

    Texas Checking On You

    Thanks Freddie for your concern. It's really bad all over the state right now. I live in LA and there are several out of control fires in our surrounding areas where the entire sky is filled with smoke. I can't imagine what it would be like with Santa Ana winds.

    Spinner experts...advice on proper technique?

    I would suggest slowing down the line with your fingers before throwing the bail over. Essentially what's happening is that you are going from totally slack line to super tight which causes a ton of impact on your line. It's like dropping a bowling ball off a building with your line attached.
