Thank you Kristen. I know Guatemala is the Sail capital but we don't hear much about the other species you catch like Yellowfin, Wahoo, etc. I...
Nice report, thank you!
Man that sucks to hear. I hope something can be done.
lol I caught an 80b bluefin on a Torium 20 with 50 braid and 30 topshot. took a shit too, lol.
Dont worry, thats still average size for cabrilla sardinera or "Leopard grouper"
Awesome looking rod. Im building my first rod right now, a GF700xxh, same guides, with Rail dog grip. How many guides dod you use, and...
Thanks Danny! Awesome report!
Is the reasoning for grinding so that when wrapping on the foot of the guide, the thread does not slip down a steep slope? So basically you are...
Man its a dream to get down there. Bocana then Mag Bay Oct-Nov 2017. Who's in?
Thank you. I mistyped. I have an HXJ Raptor not an MXJ, lol. I would be a little outgunned but thanks for being kind about it.
I have a mak 16iisea and an Avet raptor hxj 2speed. Which should I use for the 100spectra/80 top and which for the 80/spectra/60 top?
What about dropper loop for tails? Spectra with mono or straight mono? Ill be on the Shogun Nov. 11 trip. Cant wait!
Ouch! Hurts losing a nice fish like that. Thanks for the report!
SWEET! The materials alone cost what you are asking. Great deal guys.
Thank you Jim. I appreciate it. Ill be on the Shogun Nov 11., 6 day. I can't wait.

Shogun just opened another 5 day in Dec (all others are sold out for Lupe). They will most likely have permits for Guadalupe Island. Not sure if...

PanamaSportfishingLodge was pretty awesome to say the least. Ive been there twice and caught some big tuna topping 265b.
I bought mine online, cant remember where. I have pretty wide feet and had troubke with xtra tuff. I put comfirtable insoles in my xtratuff and...
80lb is easier to cast than 65b? Can you explain?
what was the cost to fish out of these spots? Awesome report!
I have a trip to the Lupe Nov, 11 on Shogun. This will be my first trip. I have been reading the threads here as well. I have a Mak 16sea and a...
These are the most comfortable and longest lasting i have used. Xtra tuff seem to be made poorly these days. I like these rugged sharks.
