    Is this where our big "resident" bluefin went?

    The west to east migration takes place around either equinox. Biologist told me they head west from San Francisco area, and book straight across the pacific. They don’t know how or why they know to do that, but the pattern is consistent.

    People who fish dark braid

    Wow, John from Dana Landing here. Just to be clear, we don’t have any directive to sell any specific lines, or line colors. Most customers want green spectra. I always ask them if they are fishing party boats and try to talk them into light colored braid, but ultimately it’s the customers...

    Xiphias Gladius on a lure?

    I talked to Jerry today at the shop. They were running the lures right behind the underwater transom lights when that thing hit. He said that thing took all the gaffs away the first time they hit it. They broke out the blue marlin gaffs, on the next shot they got him. That thing is a beast.

    Trueline question

    I pulled the cork tape off a truline rod I have fished with for a long time. The blank is a L-VV-7. That doesn't sound familier to me. any one heard of it? It's a little over 7 foot, I always fished 25-30 with it. Thanks

    I decided to run off some pics of my friend Dave Matsurras Marlin lures. I did the skirts. I don't think dave would post this stuff, but this head has acounted for a lot of marlin off San Diego the last 4 years. Quite a bit has gone into the development of this head. They wanted a head that...

    We sell those sleeves at Dana Landing in San Diego. Burns had it as a dcl for 80-130#, and a dbl for 125-150#. They are from Rosco Tackle, the l is for long. The long in those sleeves was a custom cut (we had to order 20,000 of each) Those 2 sizes will cover most of your rigging. I like the...

    When you cross the border, you can puchase a tourist visa there. This is all that you will need besides Mexican fishing permits, which most tackle shops in San Diego have.

    1.5 on the CONDOR

    Wow, it sure has been a long time since I've fished on the sport boats. I don't think I have ever been on an overnite tuna trip when the fishing was decent with less than 40 people. Try 62 people on the Prowler, we always considered the Grande a light load with 40 people. Of course then you...

    Cat Marlin 2 (Mayhem destruction and the Jinx continues)

    Switch you hooks to a mustad 7691s, and you shouldn't have that problem. Don't knock the shackle rig, it is designed for fishing stripers. Works really well on chugger heads.

    THE marine life protection and game code 2850

    Just a couple of notes. 1. The UA proposed maps looked great, but the people I know that are involved in the process said that DFG wants nothing to do with any kind of c&r areas. 2. My hunch is, and I think this kind of played out on the central coast, is that the maps of the areas to be...

    JX binding under extreme drag

    Penn solved this with the trq lever drag reels. With the multi disk drag cartridge it dosn't take the big side load to get monster drag presure with no handle load. Unfortunatly the sizes are a little funky, and they probably won't sell very well.
