    Hey, Short report again. Gus driving. Neo and Jordan on deck. Ryan in the kitchen. Nice 4-5" dines. Headed over to the island and had the most beautiful weather you could ask for ! Too beautiful for the fish to bite I guess. Lot more skiffs out today. Gus worked hard but no matter where...

    Hey guys, Short report. Went out to Catalina on the Pursuit. John driving, Gary on deck, and Ryan in the galley. Fished yellows and bass with the rest of the fleet. Good number of firecracker yellows and bass biting the dines on 20lb. Kinda funky wind vs current so was difficult to get...

    Flatfall flouro leaders and hooks

    If you have rinsed your jigs off thoroughly and stored them in a cool dry area they should be fine. You have to check them though. Are the swivels or hooks showing rust. Is the cord still tightly weaved and supple. Is the flouro still clear with no kicks on the line. If so they are probably...

    Offshore Intrepid 1.5 day 5/16-5/18

    Yea but I'm in an apartment right now so no room for cutting a big fish. Whether the smaller ones are better for sashimi I can't say. Just fits on my kitchen counter.

    Aw man Bummer ! I'll tell you though, If the weather was any worse than it was out there on Mon night, then you don't want to be out there.

    Offshore Intrepid 1.5 day 5/16-5/18

    Hey guys, I signed up for a 1.5 day a couple months ago for me and my gal. Figuered it would be nice to get away in style after the past year. Initially thought we might be doing Collnet or some coastal yellowtail. But as the date grew closer I realized that we would be doing the Bluefin...

    What would you buy if you could only take ONE rod and reel set up for an 8 day trip?

    Mostly Avet pro ex 30s and Seeker 2x4 and 3x5 for the heavy gear. Lighter seekers and Avets for the other stuff. Just got off the boat.

    What would you buy if you could only take ONE rod and reel set up for an 8 day trip?

    If you are going to get him 2 outfits that are go to rigs, I would suggest . . . 1) 7.5-8 foot rod rated around 20-40 lb and a 3/0 sized reel. This will allow you to fish 30lb mono. This will allow for bait fishing for schoolie sized dorado, tuna, yellowtai, wahoo. 2) 7- 7.5 foot rod rated...

    What would you buy if you could only take ONE rod and reel set up for an 8 day trip?

    What kind of fisherman is your husband? Does he fish saltwater often? Can he cast a conventional reel? Does he like throwing lures or does he mostly fish bait? Does he have any saltwater gear currently? Is this going to be an annual type of trip or is he just going to do this once? Does he...

    Advantage of Fish Processing?

    To answer your exact questions: 1) You don't have to have to try and Lug a fish over 40lbs or multiple fish home and clean it yourself. You don't have to dispose of the carcasses of mess. You don't have to spend hours vaccuum sealing yourself and will probably get better quality sealed bags...

    Can you explain the purpose of rigging like this? For example, the purpose of the bridled jig using the circle hook is so that you get a hook set in the corner of the mouth thus leaving your line outside with less chance of a chew off. What are the advantages you are looking for with this...

    SPJ for Yellows and Tuna...

    I hear ya. It takes awhile to get confidence using slow pitch gear. Your mind keeps telling you that you need more back bone, longer rod etc. If that is what you are looking for then the Innovate will give you that. However, you still won't be horsing any yellows around with it. As for the...

    I think your Gravitate/Ocea combo is just fine for yellows and schoolie tuna "IF" SPJ is the technique that you want to use. The Innovate will be longer and a bit stiffer in the butt section but it still won't be a fast action rod. If you WANT to by a new rod than by all means the Innovate...

    3/1 Island Spirit

    Most fish were caught just above the bottom. Used mostly long fall presentation right above the bottom with my longer jigs. Also used small 1/4 turns on my teardrop shaped jigs when Slowly working jigs up. Only exception was when we got into the Bank Perch which were well above the bottom.

    I got yo-yo problems...

    What reel are you using? All my yo yo reels are narrow with taller spools (Trinidad 40N, Narrowed Newell 533, Penn Baja Special, Penn Fathom 40NLD). I don't reel as fast as I can but at a steady pace. Might be that I'm picking up more line. The fish tell me what the right speed is and it...

    Popping Rod for an Okuma Komodo

    I throw poppers on my Komodo with a Phenix PSW 809 XHJ. Worked great with 120-150 sized poppers. Caught tuna and yellows up to 30lbs with no problem and had a blast.

    More Yellas on The San Diego !

    Both. Fish were moving fast. I caught fish two cranks off the bottom (scrambled egg 6x and 140g slow pitch), casting out to boils surface iron style (mint 6x), and half way up after dropping jig from side of the boat (mint 6x). Like I said, the fish made you work for it.

    I use 65 lb spectra to 4-10 foot section of 50-60lb flouro. When I was using the RP/Modified Albright Knot, I used a flouro section short enough so that my knot was always outside the tip guide because the knot hitting the guides would occasionally mess up my cast. Now that I have become...

    Amigo or Aloha Spirit

    For rockfishing both boats are fine. Question is do you want a bunk (Amigo) so you can sleep on the way out/back? If you were looking for yellowtail or seabass, Aloha Spirit hands down.

    Seafloor control

    They are good jigs. Expensive though. With these slow pitch jigs, I've found that I've had to experiment with a few different kinds to find which ones have actions that I like. (More importantly, actions the fish like). This doesn't always correlate to which jigs are most expensive either...

    Are you attaching the hooks to the tail of the lure or the front ( butterfly jig style)
  519. streetnfish

    Tying Mono to Braid?

    Bad word choice. I mean the knot has a higher percentage breaking strength vs some other knots. Say a knot that breaks at 50% of line test
  520. streetnfish

    Lingcod, yellowtail, reds, blues, and white fish at Anacapa island

    Palomar is a good knot and shouldnt be breaking on the fish you were catching. Since it was your first time using the palomar you may have had your lines crossing when snugged up. Its a simple knot to tie but lots of folks tie it and dont take care to make sure the double line isnt crossed...

    Best Budget Yoyo Reel?

  522. streetnfish
