I went on a long trip 2 years ago and I still have some new 130ld Fluorocarbon coil, and wind on leader Leftover
I have all my fishing line store in a cooler in my garage.
How long before the Fluorocarbon will deteriorate?
Its a lot of money and I don’t want to throw it away if I don’t have too...
I have my ticket for the
6/18/2021 trip on the Excel.
I live in Santa Barbara and am driving south by myself.
I was wondering if any of you on the same trip might live in the 805 area?
Maybe we can drive together to San Diego and share the cost of gas and parking. PM me if you are...
Can you tell me the price Of the GP terminator 80, please with a discount
if it’s possible
I was thinking this rod with Accurate BV600 NN
I want to know your opinion about for throwing bombs at wahoo
My partners and I are looking for any information or help on replacing the gas tank on our 1994 Parker... how difficult is this work? If anyone out there has had this work done to their vessel, I’d love to hear about it.
Back from my 1.5 day fishing excursion on the Pacific Queen. This is what I learned: in my opinion, you only need 4 set ups.
1. 25lb or 30lb
2. Really important: a 40lb Fly line reel with a minimum 400 Yard line 60lb or 80lb Spectra
This 40 can be changed easily to a 50 lb
3. flat fall set up...
Yes but you never know what time you are getting there,
it can be close,so I really recommend To buy it before you get there
The are links on bloody decks
One more things please check your spare tire really important
You’re gonna have a great time I’ve been going there for the last 4 years
I go fish with Pedro at Cangrejo Sportfishing One of the best local Captain ;)
I recommend crossing the border at Mexicali
On the way back cross the border at Calexico east much faster
Stop for late lunch at Alfonsina...
It was used only on my last 18-day trip,
perfect condition, 10 /10. Comes with original box and all the pieces. For a better grip of the reel on the rail, the left lug was machine grind off, but there is a replacement lug that comes with the reel. 250 yards of Seagur, 130 lb hollow core, Neon...
I was thinking to bring with me on the 18 days trip 70% of my jigs, just in case ;).
It is my first time on a long trip. But I feel better if I have some jigs in my box, mostly wahoo jigs.
I will be prepared with more knowledge on my second long trip ;).
Hi Loc V.
I have all the tools. I would love to learn how to silver soldering. I wondering if I bring the equipment on the trip, would you show me how to use it? I have never done it before, I’m kind of nervous.
I have a couple of jig they need hooks
I’m leaving for my first trip on RP in 5 weeks
I have Avet ex 50w 3 peed to use as a kite reel and shipjack
The tackle shop filled the reel up to the limit with 600 yards of 200lb Saeguar thread-lock

I see a lot of threads about preparing gear for long trips, but I was wondering if anyone has recommendations for exercises that can help physically prepare you for a long battle with a giant tuna? I’m going in January on a long trip for the first time. I am turning 50 and am in decent shape but...
I will be on the same trip, first timer on the 18 days.
I consider myself a beginner and I’m really interested in any information or suggestions regarding this trip. I am already in touch with one of the other passenger with more experience for mentoring.
Use 60 and 80 pound line
The tuna 100lb to 160ld
We lots lost 40% of YFT to the taxman
Only the first 2 YFT probably made it to the boat and after that they were between 1 or 2 Great white circle the boat
I’m not sure the total count but I think they were 30 yellowfin tuna and over 100...
Thx for the report
