    7/18 aztec overnight report

    Bring the burrito to the rail with you. Chuck it on the tackle rack if you get bit. You can eat when your dead. :imdumb:

    Footwear recommendations

    Muck Boots makes a "Cool" version. Got these last time after years with Evairs and Xtra tuff. The mucks are way more comfortable, and a bit more pricey. I think around 120-130$. Well worth it IMHO.

    This one was on 40# from a sportboat. 112# in one hr. Wish it had been 60#

    Ultra- Catalina Island

    It was a fun day with a great bunch of guys. Yellows could have cooperated better but the rockies bit pretty well and there was some nice quality. Red Drum was non-stop all day, smoked fish, great food, cold beer. It all came together.

    John Collins knot

    Used this knot on my last Indy trip 8-9-14 65# spectra to 40# fluoro. Good enough to land a 112# Bluefin. Caught other fish 15-60# with no issues. I finish mine with a 2 turn uni on the spectra just for piece of mind.

Very...

    Info on the Native Sun

    Good boat and crew. They love to fish (on there own time) and like to see there customers catch a lot too. They will be fishing for sand bass on the lead head and squid this weekend. Believe the boat is moving to 22nd street landing after that. Food is good also and plenty of space in the galley...
