It depends on how much line you spot the fish, but that is a solid reel for the application

I tip 10-25 percent.
I only tipped 10% once, and explained to the captain why. I also wont fish that boat or with that captain again.
That is probably the only "legal" way to collect money for sport caught fish.
Well done, but sorry you lost you frozen fish.
A dedicated freezer helps.
The frost free feature on most home models is not good for long term storage

Tails and sails.
All of the above.
It is more a matter of finding fish that want to play.
Find the right school, and you can throw just about anything at them

The number of people who want to take all the guns is probably about the same as the number of 2A supporters who want ZERO gun laws.
Comprehensive background checks for all owners, and all transfers go through federal dealers. No more gun show anonymous purchases.
Do you have the original handle?
A well rigged bridle won't damage the bait like back hooking will. A Mac can stay alive all day with a bridle.
So the answer is to do nothing?
No one is coming for the guns of responsible gun owners. Are you a felon or a wife beater?
I think people who need Emotional Support Animals...

There are holes, where brackets used to be, however they are not attached
A 30 size reel.
Maybe a 50.
I just saw your post.
There are no brackets with the tank.
Looks like they would make great pens.
Albeit a little large and heavy
A 10 YO post that doesnt lose any flavor over time.

One older guy had a...
I expect you and soda to have some stories.
Choate is prolly too PC to chime in.
This thread should get good
I get good action on my JX 4.0.
I think the diameter of the spool makes up for the slower speed.
I use a JX 6.0 for surface iron.
They work great.
Didja meter or see anything? Blind strike?
What did you get it on?
Put Spanos in it, and light it on fire.
I like 50# braid.
It is easier to tie to fluoro.
Some say it never ended
They must have gone over.
Hard to imagine someone driving that close
This is one of the stranger stories, but not impossible
Damn. Rough day

That is just a trip to the dump.
Fish for YT at the islands enough, and you are bound to catch one sooner or later.
You can go crazy targeting ghosts
Yup, button down the drag of first reel before tossing in. This will keep saltwater out for the fight. But, get reel reel open and serviced ASAP....
I can live without lead weights.

If you are going to the Lupe, bring an extra 80#, that can fish 60# too.
HX raptor on a 1x3 recommended above is a great choice.
Glad everyone is safe.
Engines don't like sitting for a decade.
Straight lines are your friend
Yellowtail tuna.... hands down

When you spike a fish, balance it vertically, so the blood runs out of the hole.
Putting fish in a bucket works well for maintaining the position.

LR is like Summer Camp, but the only activity is fishing.
50 or bigger.
Especially if kite fishing is an application.
Spotting a fish 150+ yards of line can make for a tough fight.
You talked me into it.
I will change my pick to 35.
Dang, that is a lot of points.
I will start the bidding at $100.
I would like to change my guess to 1 point.

Kneeling for the anthem or putting a draft dodger in charge of the military?
That is all.

Typically NFL broadcasts are in commercial during the anthem.
Is anyone outraged about this disrespect?
No? Cool with me.
Just thought I would leave this here.
All these people talking about boycotting NFL, and Hollywood productions as well.
It's gonna come down to Duck Dynasty reruns, or reading a book....
Still waiting for the video to surface of Trump in a lux box, seating or eating during the anthem.

The only reel i have purchased that has appreciated in value
I like Avet reels.
If you grease the drags, and fish them within the drag specs, they are great.
Also, very easy to work on.
Anything more than a Penn 500, and you are trying to hard.
Seriously, you will be fine.
As their riders age, they need to court the younger generation.

Wife prolly made him put the ad up.

No team was willing to trade for him.
I think Romo is trying to inflate his value
Nice lunch today, nice lunch tomorrow
If you can't safely get it into the boat.... tow it back, or radio for help.
No fish is worth swamping or capsizing offshore.
Two or more gaffs...
Don't accept that shoddy workmanship.
Doing so screws us all in the long run.
Of course not. Ball is good, but he has to do it at the next level before the discussion about Curry can start.
No Kool Aid here.

Albacore.... But I think it's just because I haven't nabbed one in a couple years
Wow, you set your bar a little lower than me.
That's fine, I just want to have more confidence in the people who drive me offshore.
After this, they will either have to change industries, or location.
Their names are pretty tainted in the SD sportfishing community.
A large casting platform generally means a shallower hull.
If you didn't go to FHS up north, cruz to the one in Del Mar.
And while there are a lot more evil people who need to be locked up, there are a lot of less evil people sitting in cells.
I can't disagree more. We build prisons for people like this.

A little Maker's Mark
Avet SX or SXJ
They need to serve time.
Anything less would be rewarding bad behavior.
Bad luck is still luck
Tossing jigs on 30# is a bit dicey.
I consider 40# to be slumming with jigs.
Yup, both his books are great
Just leave that anywhere
I leave most stickers on jigs.
I like to see how cheap they used to be.
According to your link, boat has sold.
Is it you?
If so, congrats.
I have looked into buying and shipping boats from the east coast.

You should go hooping, instead of fucking with your trailer.
It's the only brand I have used. But I am a loyal customer.
It worked in the jungles of South America, and works for LR.
The only way to ensure success is to go to Point Loma Seafood.
Failure is constant in fishing.
Success is never gauranteed.

The last few seasons I have been using 4" plastic drain covers from home depot.
They have two different styles that fit snugly to each other....
Tubes are the way to go.
If you want a long troll, use braid.
Buy it once, or buy mono every year.
Although I have replaced some braid.
I would advise a JX, or MXJ.
Spanos can't afford to move, and he can't afford to stay.
If he is willing to pony up $550M to move, he should pay $550M for a stadium.
The tackle shops listed above are all good.
I am a fan of Squidco.
Welcome to the club. Have fun!!!!
Stealing is wrong, but stealing tools is just fucked up.
I speculate Stan would pay $500M to be the only team in LA.
Spanos is just trying to create leverage. This rubs people the wrong way. Then Dean...
Gotta love December bluefin
Sorry sorry to read this.
Sad for your loss
Those last few degrees make a big difference.
So sorry to read this.
I am hoping for a miracle.
Nice pile of bugs
They are too far behind to move to LA.
The Rams dominate that market.
Maybe San Antonio Chargers?
I am 41, and San Felipe has been fished out for my entire life.
Gonzaga is the way to go
TLDs are a great "low end" troller for our local stuff.
Depending on what you want to spend, there are plenty of nicer options out there.
Good job catching fish with your Pops.
I love Punta Chivato
You're gonna need a bigger buffer.
Glad it came out OK.
My first trip on a Sportie was a seven day on the Royal Star.
Just try to get comfortable.
Pay attention to the people who are catching more...
San Diego Ice.... It's even on the way to the freeway.
Avet raptor HXW.
The smallest reel I would troll.
Vintage tackle, and vintage fishermen.
If you are hooping near rocks, try to keep an anchor handy.
At least Marty got the team ready Raider Week

Wife will be happy with lobsters.
See if you can find a Trinidad 40 Narrow Special.
They are getting hard to find, but worth every penny.
Another vote for heating the guide and using glue
Are the fish bag, cutting table, and bait net included in the sale?
My favorite boat in the fleet.
Once a reel gets uncovered, the cover stays off for the remainder of the trip.
I don't want a wet, covered reel to form consensation.
I have a friend named "8 toes"
Just curious.... Which boat?
Good luck with sale.
Sweet looking ride
I thought the boat would have bounced better.
I don't think you can pin the sorry shape of our school system on the liberals.
I am pretty sure most of the the budget cuts are from...
Large fish are caught at the intersection of opportunity and preparation.
You can only control one of those.
You got what you paid for.
Free line = expensive mistake.
Hang out at your local tackle shop..... make some friends.
Yes.... I have a leader straightener for fly fishing that I use to try to pull a leader straight.
They don't stay coiled too badly.
I tie spectra to about 1\2 spool of flouro.
I get two leaders out of a spool.
I replace when they get shorter than 8 ft.
Congrats on a great trip
That is the reddest Mola I have ever seen.... maybe it is sick?
I will take some samples for testing!!!!
I just did the 43 in an 18 ft Hydra sport.
It took an extra 5 gallons to get back to MB.
I guess we pushed that little boat as far as we could.
Beautiful grade of fish
Big Pharma isnt Healthcare.
Big Pharma is a disease
If you buy live bait, don't hate on the seiners.
Can't have it both ways.
There should be quality YFT at Alijos in October.
That is a nice shortbill
Good job. Catching fish with family is awesome
Those sportboats keep three day limits.
Anyone who thinks they are stopping at 5 fish per angler is wrong.
It's August, and the fleet can't find good YFT offshore.
This doesn't bode well for this season.
I know that I am wary of stalkers.
Perhaps you scared the seller off by blowing him up?
I think you may have driven up on the school too fast.
Fish 60# at your own risk.
80# and up for the Lupe.
Anything under, and you are going to feed the sharks.
Try to bait the thief, or thieves.
I love vigilante justice.
The thief has prolly been arrested before, so no deterrent there.
Someone should be making a fortune off those.
What happened to that fish's propeller?
That fish isn't close to 200#.
A couple of poignant lines:
It ain't talking shit, if you are telling the truth.
Believing something to be true,...
Damn, they must have been thick down there.
They must own stock in Mustad
You should fish better boats. Royal Star and Intrepid food is great.
As for the day boats... 90% of food is from Smart and Final freezers.
Two words.... San Diego.
It looks like it was a 6 day trip.
Might explain why everyone involved is no longer is business.
You gotta tune them.
You want the head to dart from side to side.
Pull the leader out, and roll the plug. Mark the heaviest side. Put the hook...
RS is my favorite boat in the fleet.
From top to bottom, a great operation
Shimano TLD 30.
For the money, they are a great value
This weekend I am stalking Chewbaccas in downtown SD.
I spotted a nice trophy, but it ducked into the Tilted Kilt before I could get off a shot.
Does that storm know Mr. LoPreste?
It looks like you spotted a silver backed mullet. Very rare in these waters.
Good looking boat.
I miss albacore
What he said
Looks like a yellowtail tuna to me.
65 or 80
If the NRA doesn't figure something out, the liberals are going to take all the guns.
It is as simple as that.
The captain can only put the boat on fish.
He can't make them bite.
Sorry to hear that.
Hopefully you get something back, for all the premiums you pay.
Yes, I believe and support the 2nd ammedment, but with qualifiers.
Surely, you must think there a SOME people who should not own guns.
You gotta try to keep guns away from crazies like Christy Shears.
No system will work 100%
The NRA better come up with a plan, before the Dems...
These are the same fish that have been boat shy for a few years.
The grade of fish seems to get nicer each year
Wahoo at Alijos, 500 miles away.
They might get within range in 6 or 8 weeks
Way to persevere through an epic battle
Great reel tutorials.
Thanks for both!
Tuna noticeably absent from the fish counts the last few days.
At least the YT have popped up
Nice grade of fish
25%. And use a drag scale.
That is going to make someone very happy
Congrats on an epic trip with family.
