    Going to Cabo, Can I have the name of some good charter boats??

    Fin Addict is another good one out of Cabo. They are outfitted with all new Okuma gear.

    A good buddy of mine runs a 4 pack out of Cabo...Fin Addict. The fishing has been pretty good down there. He sent me this yesterday...230# at the dock. Check it out. Go get some.

    Sardine shortage and anchovy questions

    Bigger and hardier baits the eye popping can be very effective, (especially when chumming...I usually pop an eye every fourth or fifth bait). I wouldn't try popping an eye on a chovy though unless you want to fish with dead bait. lol Also might want to go with an 8 or 9 footer with a softer...

    Sardine shortage and anchovy questions

    Light wire, (I prefer ringed), #2 hook size and collar hook them. Owner Mosquito, Owner Mutu Light if you prefer circle hooks. Owner Fly Liner for a little beefier hook if you need it.

    Introducing two new anglers to the sport...

    Our son and daughter-in-law from El Paso showed up Friday with the boys in tow.

He caught his...

    Non Albacore Year?

    I concur Jason. I would bet money there are Albacore out there, (likely year round). Also if you are watching the bait it has been going to mostly Chovies now.

    Curve Up or Curve Down?

    Roll was probably not the correct word. Should have said twist. The truer it stays to center the less twist when the rod loads. If the rod twists when loading for a cast it can, (and does), adversely effect accuracy. Under heavy drag, (or max drag for a particular blank), it can twist itself out...
  49. fishnfool

    Curve Up or Curve Down?

    If you build it off spine the rod will try to roll to the spine when loaded. Thie effect is not as significant under low drag settings, or light line classes but can twist a rod right out of your hands/harness under heavy loads. If you are struggling to keep the rod in the correct position to...

    Pretty sad to see a blatant no call determine the outcome of the Superbowl.

    I think the momentum changed because of the game plan the Niners had for the second half. They opened up the offense and their defense stepped up their game as well. Really bad no call at the end. Niners should have at least had another shot. Fun game to watch. Go Bears!

    You have got to be kidding me. Many of these sportboat captains post on this site, and are friends, and even family. Some of these guys are possibly going to lose their livelyhood, and/or way of life, and you have the nerve to ask them for some info on how to run a boat, and what it takes to...

    What Size Plastics Do You Fish?

    Mostly 5 and 6 inch for the kelps but sometimes 3 or even 8 inchers are the ticket, (match the hatch). In the bay mostly 3 inch but sometimes 5. I also downsize my line in the bay and use mostly 6#, or even 4# when I just want to get a good bend in the rod.

    The Freedom out of 22nd Street Landing just called

    I think he is just trying to let everyone know there is a pretty good bite going on for anyone going out.

    What is Best Way To Test Drag Setting?

    Straight pull is not accurate at all. You do not fight a fish with the rod pointed straight at it...there is a bend in the rod. If you test it straight pull it will be much higher than you set it in the real world application of fighting a fish. Common sense tells you to set it on a bent rod...
