    3.5 day trip report from PV fishing the No Tuna No Chinga

    Another hint regarding bringing home fillets, have the soft sided coolers wrapped at the airport prior to checking them. Adds some insulation and makes handling easier and less chance of broken zippers or ripped bag.

    Need Advice/Help - flying in for a long range trip

    Try ShipStix, they do a great job. I have shipped skis, golf clubs and fishing gear with them. Make arrangements to ship to the office of the boat you are going on. Send directly to them.

    Rookie question

    When you could fish Clarion Island we always checked in with the garrison there. They boarded us and they examined our passenger manifest and matched passports. We didn't check in with customs upon return to the US, presumably because we didn't land on the island.

    Canning Tuna

    I use the one pint wide mouth jars, spring water a 1/2 tsp of salt and a 1/2 tsp of pepper flakes. Fresh jalapeños kind of look like snot when cooked. After packing the jars with fillets be sure to run a knife around the inside of the jar while adding the water to get as much air out as...

    3.5 day trip on Sea Adventure 80 out of San Diego

    I don't know shoot from shit but something smells here. I thank the fish gods that I fish with a solid group and enjoy every minute being on the fishing grounds with my amigos. Here's wishing everyone finds a similar circumstance to do what is most special in our short time on this planet.

    LARGER REEL?

    I'm on that trip this year, I'll bring a couple heavier outfits (just in case). Avet 30w/3 rigged 130/100 on an OSP 4X and a Seeker Wahoodad 4X with a 50/2 rigged 130/100, you are more than welcome to use them. As for what you already have, I'm thinking you're pretty well armed.

    Kings at Kodiak Is?

    I will be in Kodiak fishing the middle of August. Is there a King salmon run then or should I save the $45 for a King stamp?

    Lefty cow killer?

    I like my Avet 30w 3-speed. Finishing cows when they're circling straight up and down you need to pinch the reel and hold line you gain. Hard for me to do with a smaller reel like the HX

    Best of luck to Jeff! Had several great trips on the Indy with him. He is definitely an intense fishing machine.
