    Estimating Fish Processing Costs?

    Depends on the boat, most boats fillet fish on trips up to 2.5 days. Call the landing and check. $5 a fish beats $.80 per lb. Especially if you get a good crew who takes pride in their work. Plus that's 80% of how we make our living.

    If you're going to be fishing surface iron, get a good 8 or 9 foot stick, I use a newell 332 with 40lb test for surface iron. For jigs you can go get some Tady 45's or Candybar jigs or Salas 7x's. For live baiting I would say 25lb test If you can find a nice looking mack in the handwell go for it.

    Fired up, a rant coming on

    I'm 15 now, I remember the first time I went out fishing, I want to say I was 6, and he took me out to Lake Otay. I remember when we pulled up there and I would stand next to him and you could look down in 4 feet of water and see the bluegill right under you, he would hook one and hand it to me...

    Penn Baja and Penn Torque 300 what is each best suited to.....whats better ??

    I personally own a penn baja special and it's a great jigging reel. It is perfect for jigging around and throwing a 7x. Mine is 50lb spectra backed with 40lb mono. I personally have a 700m on mine. You can also troll around with this reel. Hope this maybe helped a little.
