    Offshore Kite fish question

    why would you even want a kite fish at that point. its a hook and hand + from what ive seen on my trips and photos the deckhands usually have their hand(s) on the rod the whole time feeding line in/ help positioning, moving it over/under other passengers. kite fish (from a sport boat, ill...

    What’s up with the Seeker D8?

    I’m a seeker guy and hate the d8; there are some variations of the seeker d8 that are better than others but the rod in general just sucks. It’s a noodle - barely heavy enough to fish 30. If you enjoy getting your ass kicked and seeing your rod bend in half then that’s good for you. if you want...

    Limits question

    You fish for boat limits, people will say they caught ‘x’ amount but everyone goes him with 2/5/whatever - best personal policy is to read the room in my opinion; on a boat full of killers or a private charter ?

    Need help deciding witch boat to board... Tribute vs Voyager Overnight Trips

    smaller boats in my opinion dont "slide" as much as the bigger ones when the engines are cut due to sonar schools, trolling hook ups, etc. this translates, in my experiences, to less tangles and more opportunities to get your bait and line in the water quicker which should get you more bites...

    Offshore BFT 80 miles out of San Diego!!

    what u guys arent understanding is that every two weeks the tuna move north in 80 mile increments (6 weeks ago-240, last week-160, this week 80) so if we all just wait 1.5-2 weeks more the tuna will be 0 miles from San diego. its genius
