    Owner Ultra Split Rings: the right pliers?

    I use the Owner split ring pliers. It’s a nice tool. Comes with line cutter and sleeve crimper too. And I agree that it seems that installing the split ring deforms it more than just merely opening it with a tool. https://www.ownerhooks.com/product/gp2/

    Disposable Knife Jigs..1 and done

    Is it just the paint or the jig that’s cracked? If paint, don’t sweat it. If it’s the jig, the through wire should hold it together. But if you want to replace it, other colors have been working fine if not better than all glow. And yes replace those stock hooks. They suck.

    For my 80 lb tackle I set the drag at strike to 26 pounds. However, on hook up I started it less and never slid the lever to strike. The fish came in quick and didn’t feel the need. I was probably at 20 pounds or so.

    Tips for Lingcod?

    First, tie J hook on main line. Then cut a short piece of mono/flouro leader and tie it to eye of J hook next to main line knot. Then attach treble to leader.
  132. nate

    Tips for Lingcod?

    Not sure what size exactly. I use the trebles that I remove from megabaits/irons that get replaced with single hooks for tuna fishing. If I had to guess probably 4/0 to 8/0.
  133. nate

    Tips for Lingcod?

    For Lings using large bait I like a big J hook and a big treble hook tied together with mono/flouro. Put the J hook in the nose and the treble towards the tail. The line between the hooks should be about the length of the bait.

    What should you and I pay? Owner & Ho

    If you are going to use an analogy for this topic, at least come up with one that makes sense. The people coming to the dinner party typically have their own house, furnishings, and appliances. If they wanted to have their own dinner party they could. The average boat ho typically does not...

    What should you and I pay? Owner & Ho

    I'll assume that you directed your response to me since I said the comment about being cheaper than a party boat. I could go on and pick apart your post like you did mine and say things like: Maybe you pay for everyone to go on your boat because you truly are an "aroagant self centered...

    What should you and I pay? Owner & Ho

    Well, so far I'm in the minority as a boat owner. I can live with that. I do ask that my ho's pay for all the fuel and bait when there are at least 3 of them on board. If there is less I chip in. However, those are not all the expenses as the poll reads. Actually now that I think about it...

    East Cape in April

    Took my wife to Palmas in April a few years back. The hotel is nice-good for the wife if she does not want to fish . It can be crowded (East Cape crowds are not like Cabo) if you travel around spring break. We fished 2 days offshore. 1st day: 9 dorado 15-35 lbs. 1 marlin hooked and lost...

    How Far Does a 5W Handheld VHF Work?

    Another thing to keep in mind is that the transmiting/receiving power of some handhelds vary depending on the type (rechargeable or alkaline) and size of batteries you are using. I received a handheld as a gift that could only work on 2.5 watts when the AAA alkaline batteries were used.

    Squid 1-17

    Hey Chris, don't rule out daytime squid down there as well. We caught some mid morning two years ago at the Finger while codding. We had no squid jigs on board-bait and iron worked good for us.

    Deep fry Tuna or YT for fish tacos???

    By far the best store bought breading mix I have found is "Shore Lunch". Although, the only place I have seen it for sale is at SQC Tackle in San Diego. I have seen it available on line somewhere. Get the original rather than the Cajun style. You will not be disappointed.

    Never used one, but I have heard that Irridium works better than Globalstar. Saw a thread somewhere a couple years ago about a San Diego company that offers the Irridium. Try satellites-phone.com.

    Shelter Island Launch Ramp construction!

    It seems like one of the biggest problems at SI is that when returning to retrieve your trailer you must fight with the boats launching, tying up, waiting in line to enter the basin, and basically too much confusion in a small space. Why not build a small "T" courtesy dock to the north of the...

    Rinse your fillet's?

    I agree with saltwater rinse and pat dry for most fish. Although, a few years ago I stopped the saltwater rinse on albacore and only dry with paper towels after hearing a suggestion from a sportboat crew. The albacore meat definitely seems to hold up better when not rinsed at all.

    Offshore 6/24 5 albies at the 1010

    Fished east of the 1010 Trench (31 47 & 117 35) for 5 albies, 3 bonies and 1 yellowtail. All of the albies were caught soaking bait on meter marks early in the morning. Good grade of fish between 20-30 lbs. Water temp. ranged from 64.3-64.9. Bonies and yellow caught on the troll.

    Cheap Red Dye Diesel

    I got an account with Soco Fuels in El Cajon about 3 years ago. They are part of a system called CFN (Commercial Fueling Network). I have access to red dye, unleaded, etc, all over the Western U.S. As noted above the prices do fluctuate a lot. Lately I have been paying between $2.90 to $3.05...

    South Nine 1-28

    Original plan was to fish the Upper Finger, but one of my crew was late so we decided to stay local and fish the Nine. Steady pick all day for various rockfish. Highlight of the day was a 28" ling cod. Great weather and some good eats for a few days.
