    New Trailer tips/hints?

    removing the carpet is a great idea, but don't forget to paint your bunks so they don't absorb water,or change bunks to trex lumber which is synthetic and won't soak water. Another good idea if you insist on keeping the carpet on, is take the time to replace all your nuts and bolts to stainless...

    130s verse 80s?

    I put Jerry Brown hollow core spectra 130# backing on my 80's, took a whole 1200 yard spool and had enough room for a couple hundred yard top shot of 100 # mono that inserts into the spectra, clean connection. Sure, takes some time on a big fish, but you don't get spooled easily. Unless you...

    HOOk, LINE, and LEG!!!

    Sorry about your injury, but glad it turned out ok. Seems like that's the problem with trailer hooks, one for fish and other for angler. I personally run a single hook for all lures just for the safety factor, I'd rather miss a fish then run the risk of personal injury. Even with a trailer hook...

    New, one of a kind flats boat, finally here

    If you mean cheap by saying "pake", you're right, it isn't. It's a one of a kind boat and the only one in the whole state of Hawaii. It's still a Pake's boat though,lol

    New, one of a kind flats boat, finally here

    Awesome boat, came home in .2 on the gps tide, old boat needed at least .9 to come back on the inside. Saw a guy wading with water below his knee and passed him about about a hundred yards away and I was inside of him. Scary, running so skinny, but that's why I decided on this boat, changes the...

    The last supper!

    One day years ago, saw something moving on the surface in the distance, as I got closer, it turned out to be a small 12lb Omilu, which I promptly sccoped up. It's mouth was wide open as it had swallowed a Manini and the sticky sharp dorsal fins were stuck in the roof of it's mouth so the small...

    The last supper!

    On the way back in from a flyfishing charter today, saw something floating and veered over to see what it was, as it looked weirdly like a huge fish. When I got close enough to see what it was, turned out to be a huge 60-70 pound Ulua floating dead with about a five pound O'io stuck in it's...

    Beginners Luck, But Costly Mistake

    Try to always aim for the eyes on Mahi, if u feel intimidated, you can even tie a short, small rope to the gaff head and half hitch it to the handle, so if you lose your grip, it's still connected to the boat, kinda like a mini flygaff!

    scary moment
