    Tomarrow Local 9/27 ????Help!!

    Best bet would be to go pick up a 1/2 mix scoop of bait from Nacho. Go hit up the wall and fish for some bass. Get as close to the wall as possible and pitch baits and let it slide out.

    Tuna fishing/rigging 101 help.

    Keep it simple....i flyline straight....If the fish are picky I go to fluoro and drop down the line class. If this doesnt work and you see other people catchin the fish deeper, then just add a 3/4 or 1 ounce rubbercore to your line.

    Another great trip aboard the New Lo-An. Definitely my favorite 1.5 day boat in the fleet.

I can't say enough about the young crew, as they were patient with beginners...
