    NC Trout 4/16

    This was my first trout fishing trip since I moved back to North carolina. There was a break in the weather and so I decided to go down to the Horsepasture river. After a 2 mile hike and Several nice looking holes I had nothing, not even a rise. I was finally able to pull this nice brownie out...

    Arizona Ammo Dump

    Do you think some of the whackos in the gov't are any better than the people you are speaking of? Who has the right to differentiate? The people MUST maintain the power to regulate the government. Or else you get, well, marine protected areas is one example.

    Oahu Reccomendations

    Check out Magic charters. they have decent prices and very nice gear/boat. They want to fish the big stuff but, they have 50# s/u gear available and a harness. You actually want to fish on the boat magic. If they try to get you on some old boat w/ no A/C say Hell No! it is not worth the cheap...

    Don't go offshore to fill the freezer.....

    Dude you must be able to read my mind. I just wanted to see what that 125gr. would do. It turned the vitals into a coagulated mush/soup and caused the diaphram to rupture. I couldn't find the bullet and it didn't pass through so I think it just evaporated. I am now taking a 180 Gr soft point...

    When going with the epoxy I highly recommend the LS supreme. Just finished a rod with it and..... It's awesome!

    Iron and chickens

    Dude, last year I had some good luck with a Tady 45 in turquoise. Just go to the upwind side of the boat and fish it like you would for yellowtail. It keeps you away from the crowd and it is freakin awesome to see the tunas explode on your iron on the surface.

    Offshore March Albacore 3/19

    The sea Adventure was good. Not the very best crew I have ever fished with, but better than most. I liked the skipper and I think he was the reason that the boat scored more Albacore than the other overnight boats. I would ride that boat again if given a choice.

    Did anyone see the sportboat counts for today? It looks like the fishing has opened up again. Both for Tuna and local. Is the 238/295 area still producing or did they get their tuna elsewhere?
