    If the fish is taking line.... increase drag.... if the fish is out a long way.... decrease your drag.... if the fish is up and down after a long battle be very careful with your drag pressure. I have never used a gauge to set a drag as I feel its more a matter of how you feel and the fish...

    Offshore Fished the 43

    Fished the 43 from Wednesday afternoon thru Friday mid morning.. A lot of boat pressure with every SD boat on the 43 including 80 percent of the long range boats. It was a lot of show with no go. Tried everything flatfall, colt, sardine, mack, yummy you name it we tried it. Water was 71 deg...

    Looking for stories of Great White Sharks being fished in California still

    Good luck how about having DFG on the piers instead of waiting for licensed anger to call them for a blatant violation? Better yet go witness it yourself on any given day instead of looking here where we actually give a shit about regulations and populations.

    Mako Sharks late August/Report w/pics

    Had 2 makos today one 30 lbs and one about 80 lbs right next to the boat both jumped 5 to 10 ft in the air, had this happened in your proposed adventure you could suffer major damage. Curious if a 30 lb mako jumps into a 16' inflatable where to you go? Make sure you don"t forget about the 150...

    Leopard is good as well but I don't kill them way too cool looking. In reference look at Northern Cal counts for them during the season.

    Eating Sharks?

    Completely agree with your take, I like the 80 to 150 for table fare. Anything over 7' I release. Limit is 2 of any size per angler. Brad

    I have Geico thru Boat US. I have filed a claim and I have sued them as well over engine repairs which I won. I am still with them at this point but searching for other options as my premium jumped 25 % this month for no reason. No, not as a result of the lawsuit as that was 4 years ago...

    Boat tax due soon!

    This tax is complete bullshit. They get all the tax when you purchase and then a percent every year such bullshit which in my opinion is double dipping but what do l know. Mine is due in August and while l will pay it it won't be until the last possible moment to do so. F them.

    Surfing on a 800 pound SHARK!

    Are you fucking kidding me? Show the sharks a little respect and proper care upon release. Nice toss of that hammerhead (dickhead). Not sure what kind of shark he was standing on but if it was released its dead now ASSHOLE.

    Shoulder issue. Need advice

    I suggest you do anything you can to avoid surgery. I have had 3 shoulder surgeries over the years and things are still messed up. The success of a surgery is only 35-40 % from my experiences with it. Try the shot and also the plasma injections before going under the knife IMO.

    All is good, alarm sounded and you shut down or it shut you down really isn't important. If you have an alarm after restarting then I recommend further analysis.

    PENN 30 International and 50 Questions

    I think the boat will have 2 speed reels that will be much easier on you. While I own several of each of these reels they are all blue printed and 2 speed. I would back them both with 130 braid and a short top shot , wouldn't worry about floro for trolling gear. Have fun good luck

    What trips are you on this year?

    From now until September 7 to 10 days a month on my own boat. Might be local might be extended trips one never knows. After September I will back off to 5 to 7 days a month guess it depends on the lobsters. Love the LR fleet just can't support both habits right now.
