    You're welcome. You can thank me by downvoting sealskinner when you come across his posts. At breakfast the other morning he told me he is closing in on the coveted upside down spinning reel award. Btw that cheap fuck stiffed the waitress and she was awesome.

    Gaffing stingrays to be released

    Lay them on their back and do what's necessary to avoid spines. If I'm barefoot surf fishing drag em up on the sand and flip them. Keep feet and hands at nose end. Pin em down with left hand and remove hook with right or cut line if that's better for the fish. On a boat with bigger model bat...

    Gaffing stingrays to be released

    Gee guys, thanks for all the great advice! It never occurred to myself or the other guys that actually do this kind of fishing to use a net or dehooker.

    Gaffing stingrays to be released

    I've done it many times. How else do you get them into a position to get a 6x jr out of their mouth? If it's a bait hook yah clip the line by it's lips or wherever you can get to.

    What is an AB card? What rockstar crewman is getting flown in on the boats dime out of SD? We are talking sportboats here. Not joining a Bad Company boat for a big tournament somewhere.

    Where would you launch Saturday? Shelter Island or Dana Landing

    12 is a magic number for me. If the interval is 12 or greater swell height is pretty irrelevant once you are out of the harbor. Watch your ass if you need to go in and out of Oceanside or Dana Point though. LA Googans you are on your own out of MDR. If the wind is 12 or better expect whitecaps...

    200lb hollow vs 130lb for BFT on a Mak30

    Why the 130 "step"? You like more stretch than the 20' or what? If you have the 130 why 20' of 200? 6' would seem long enough to me. Any more than that would kill the action of any lures or baits under a few pounds. Kite rig ok

    The Art of War

    So I'm the only guy that thought the "Art of War" was a good 10 page or so article that was rehashed into a book length? Reminded me of some SoCal based fishing books... DIsclaimer: I put it down about halfway through as I got tired of re reading the intro after the umpteenth time To...

    Interesting thought on the bubble. I thought you were gonna recommend a spinner there. I'm surprised the bait still swims after that launching and violent splashdown

    Tips for Thresher Fishing

    By drop back I mean a dead bait, usually a Mackerel, dropped into the water after one whacks a hookless teaser. Ie a trolled baitomatic or rapala. If you know you are in the zone slow trolling a mackerel is highly effective. You can actually see the sharks tail up out of the water as it...

    Tips for Thresher Fishing

    Keep in mind if you troll lures you are going to hook them by snagging their tail. This means they likely will come up dead. There is no "targeting eater fish" ie males between 70 and 130#. Be prepared to deal with whatever happens. Small ones might be landed quickly enough to release alive...
