    Favorite setup for 30# bait?

    I just recently retired my Newell 338 which can still cast a Sardine a mile and take on anything 30# should be able to handle. I'm using a Talica 10 II with a Calstar 850 M. Dream for fishing bait in appropriate 30# conditions. Kelp Patties, Pick Tuna Bite, smaller fish on the ridge etc. I...

    Department of Fish and Wildlife and the RP?

    I just came back from an 8 day on the Rooster...I would have passed the test....the crew tried hard to stop folks from harvesting too much. Dodo's are what mess everyone up. That and when the fish are small.

    How Long In Advance Do You Put Line On Reels?

    I always do it 1 - 2 weeks before the trip....if it’s a short fluro or leader to spectra i do it on the boat. Every thing else I do before. Cocktails, friends, seas, get in the way once you leave port.

    Are masks a deal breaker?

    I got to go fishing a week and a half ago up in the Bay Area. Wearing a mask was not an issue. I was fishing on the Cal Dawn and Captain James was basically asking us to respect the sport and the fleet by wearing masks so they wouldn't get shut down. Sure they came off occasionally for a...

    8 Day trip in Mid-June

    I'm on the Rooster in late September this year. Trying to figure out another trip....probably needs to be later in the year though with family and work balance. On a lighter note I'm going to Fiji with the family this summer....must be some kind of fishing out there?
