    Red diamond Rattlesnake.....

    If you live next to an open area, you'll likely encounter the occasional snake. You can kill it, but by doing so you're getting close to the thing you're worried about hurting you (kinda like retrieving a lure from a shark's mouth). And even if you successfully kill it without getting bit in...

    And Wicky's fish just beat out mine for a jackpot place, making me the first loser, LOL.

    pics from January Intrepid trip

    Thanks for the good words, gents! It was a pleasure meeting and/or renewing acquaintances with you guys - I think this was the only trip I've ever been on where EVERYONE paid attention to their line....what a difference it makes!

    pics from January Intrepid trip

    Returned a couple days ago from the Intrepid’s latest venture. The weather was a challenge, and chased us away from Hurricane bank after only a single day of fishing. We stayed at Clarion for three days, and hit Alijos both on the way down and on the way back for outstanding wahoo fishing...

    Tiburon...No More???

    I know the guys at Tiburon - they have plenty of parts and are still servicing the reels. Anyone who needs parts or service can contact them through a local tackle dealer. They're still manufacturing and shipping lots of aftermarket reel parts - frames, clamps, handles, etc. Many dealers are...

    Gringo Gazette Gordo Bank Bazinga!

    and it wasn't 25 anglers, nor was the boat anchored on the inner banks for three days, so definitely not the most accurate reporting job in the world.

    Thanks guys for all the nice comments! We didn't get the big fish we hoped for, but there was still plenty to enjoy (and photograph, LOL). For those of you leaving soon, best of luck!

    Intrepid day after Thanksgiving 11-day report

    18 anglers left the day after Thanksgiving for an 11-day journey to the lower banks off Baja California aboard the sportfisher Intrepid. Preparation is key to a successful venture, and it looked like we would be ready. The “red shirts” at the landing hustled to load the gear into...

    2010 redux?

    Just got off the Intrepid yesterday morning, and we had a wonderful "variety" trip - BIG dropper-loop yellows, grouper, pargo, amberjack, wide-open dorado, and around 50 YFT in the 75 to 135 range. I was hoping to hear we'd be heading to the buffer zone, but Capt Mike made the right calls, and...
