    Offshore Kite fish question

    No bragging. Anyone can have a lucky day. I stated at the beginning it would be a brief report and my main reason to post was my question on the kite.

    Offshore Kite fish question

    They did say at the pre talk that kite fish were eligible for the jackpot. This particular fish was a close second place. The jackpot was never an issue. It was just the fact that I have never been drawn for the kite and would like that experience.

    Offshore Kite fish question

    Believe me when I say none of the other guys out fishing with me at 2:30 in the morning would have taken a handoff. Also the boat did not limit and three other anglers were very happy to get all of the fish that I caught.

    Offshore Kite fish question

    I have never been on a boat that hasn’t fished for boat limits. Like it or not that is how these boats operate. We were way short of boat limits so it would not have affected your rail time. Also I gave all of my fish away to three very happy anglers.

    Offshore Kite fish question

    You make a valid point in your first statement. Definitely would not be fair to wake up to a limited boat. Can someone clarify if boat limits in Mexican waters applies?

    I’m sorry, but I thought that I was replying to Makoman1. And I have no problem listening to everyone’s opinions. Again, that is why I posted.

    Why do you suggest that I delete my post? I am seeking opinions on a question and getting a variety of answers. That was my purpose for posting.

    Offshore Kite fish question

    I was on a boat and saw something similar. Probably four fish total and the guy with the biggest also got called for the kite and brought that one in too.

    Offshore Kite fish question

    I’ll post a brief report but mainly would like opinions on the handling of the kite rod on this particular trip. Left the docks on this recent day and a half trip and we were fishing by midnight. I’m not going to mention the boat name because while I’m not happy about the handling of the kite...

    Top shot question

    I’m going out on a 1.5 day trip after tuna next week and would like opinions on top shot size. I have a HXW raptor with 100 lb braid and 100 ft 80 lb mono. Also LX raptor with 80 lb braid and 100 ft 60 lb mono. Keeping in mind how big the tuna have been, my question is should I up the top shot...

    3.5 day boat choice

    Thanks for all of the input so far. Lots of good info. The San Diego fleet is pretty much top notch and it’s hard to make a choice sometimes. I’ve been on quite a few so far and there is only one that I would “prefer” not to go on again.
