    Coltsniper tuna

    Swap the hook out. Used 42 gm Candy Iwashi 2 wks ago and got bit. However, sardine was more productive. Chunking was tried by some wo success. Sniper was fun to toss from the bow and to get away from the crowd.

    Epidemic is a perfect description. LB, Catalina, and SD. What a turn off to hooping. It was for me. I will not pick up any hoops from Turner's. Maybe the hoopers are trying to discourage noobs like me? It worked. Lol.
