    Christmas trip to Spain

    Awesome hunt! Hiked Montserrat outside Barcelona on a Christmas trip to Europe last year and saw a ton of Ibex. Have been meaning to go back to Spain with a rifle in tow ever since. Did you guys DIY or use a guide?

    One Drake is Enough...but we want more!

    Blaine, water under the bridge man. Was frustrated about this hunt, but don't want to carry that into next season. Wish you the best on guiding, might be hard to do it there, as there's no reason you couldn't find a previous client on the next hunt, without you. Any sort of hunt is hard to...

    One Drake is Enough...but we want more!

    It's always best to keep the discussion civil in the field... no reason to escalate it over ducks. You may have walked through when my buddy walked away from his spread for a few minutes to see how I was doing, but you talked with us as you walked past later to set up, so you definitely knew we...

    One Drake is Enough...but we want more!

    Oh look, I think I see my spread in the background! Hey bud, I’m glad you got your ‘clients’ on some birds, but your methods and hunter ethics are terrible. There’s over 7 miles of shoreline on that lake and there were 15 hunters total! Why you felt the need to set up your spread 120 yards from...

    SoCal Duck Hunting at its finest.

    The Shaw is the coldest place to hunt in SoCal and it certainly showed itself that morning! I found out my breathable "waterproof" jacket wasn't waterproof that day lol, froze to the bone. Looks like you guys had a fun hunt too! Saw that lone honker flying around, glad someone got him! Just a...

    Baja Summer of 2016

    Thanks guys! Allot of good information here, definitely enough to keep me researching different locations/fish reports for a while. Do you guys have a good source for accessing archived Baja fish reports or maybe pushing it... sea surface temp charts? Just to clarify my situation/desires… I’ll...

    Baja Summer of 2016

    Hey guys, Trying to plan my first trip to Baja this year, first week of July. Have been spending a good bit of time reading past posts in this section and am just about down selected to the East Cape, Los Barriles area (possibly Rancho Leonero). Sounds like the inshore fishing for Roosters...

    Offshore Stripey on a 3/4 sportboat?

    Have you read of a recent study that goes into as much detail as that 2004 one? Would love to see how much the tackle improvements helped those numbers.

    Offshore Stripey on a 3/4 sportboat?

    I know there's allot of debate about this, but numerous studies have been done to show the survival rate of tagged and released billfish. Here's one if you feel like reading http://ww.themarlinclub.com/2004/MarlinMortalityStudy.pdf Quote from the abstract "In total, 16 of 61 fish died (mortality...

    Offshore Stripey on a 3/4 sportboat?

    More importantly... there were 51 people on that boat... no one got a picture? (not doubting that they hooked one, just would be great to see pics and figure out what the definition of "released" is on a sportboat).

    Offshore Fallin' for Dorado, hidden bank,9-20

    Although, I hope it doesn't happen again, it's definitely the best/most hilarious experience I've ever had on the water -- so glad we were filming. Damn... pushing 1,000 views already... I should have posted it to youtube and monetized it... I might have made a whole dollar!

    Offshore Fallin' for Dorado, hidden bank,9-20

    Guess now’s a good time to introduce myself to the forum. Name’s Tom McGuire – Triple Lindy extraordinaire! Like Keith said, we had a great day offshore – deck was definitely a bit more cluttered than usual, not much to say there…. new fisherman, plus crazy bite… yah things got a bit hectic for...
