    Late: constitution fishing 10/4

    New fish cleaning requirements for the Sporties?

    Typically there is a little blood line left to trim on standard filets prior to the skin being left on. Same deal with the skin filets. It is a little more work to pull the skin off but does not require special equipment other than your hands.

    Legend 1.5 Day 6/29

    I was on that trip I got a bluefin on a 4 oz. crippled herring in anchovy in the morning. Smaller 3.5 oz. megabaits in anchovy seemed to be working too. The halcos were working well on the troll but it seemed like they would hit pretty much anything I got a yellowfin on a Mex Flag Zuker. Fish...
