    Any Moto heads here?

    My family has been involved with dirt bikes for a long time. As a father raising a son I tried to expose him to all kinds of sports and hobbies but it was dirt bikes that were his passion so I supported him in that pursuit. He started off racing motocross for years but it was jumping his bike...

    Panga Fishing Los Cabos - Cow Tuna

    Hugo is pretty fishy as well and likes to troll small tuna for bait. I caught this 453lb blue from his true panga Caiman. Notice there is no fighting chair, all stand up fishing. Fish came up dead after three hours. Ate a small yellowfin on 50lb gear but had a 20lb dorado in its throat above...

    Sheers or Snips?

    Last trip on the Vagabond all the deckhands were carrying the snips on their belts. I did not see them used to cut line or spectra. What I did see them used for was cutting the gills to bleed out the tuna

    Surprising that the old Hopkins jigs are rarely used anymore. Those hard steel jigs with no tape definitely slid across their teeth but that was before spectra..

    Many many years ago when I was really into fishing wahoo with 200 gram Raider jigs I was able to buy 100 of them directly from the manufacturer. I had some issues. Never fished them with wire, used a spiders hitch to a double uni straight doubled 50lb mono. I had contacted a rep for Spanyid...

    First time with the 13 year old on the intrepid

    Took my son on a 5 day on the Intrepid for his high school graduation present. Had a total blast watching him experience something like that. Crew was excellent and the chefs let him help out in the kitchen, even put a souchef jacket on him to help serve the sushi platter he helped prepare...
