    Bring a “ball and feather”. The local shops with hook you up with the local goodies but ball and feather with get the job done. Papio like a lot of surface commotion. Make lots of casts and you will hook up on all kinds of species! Hanapa’a🤙🏽

    The second one maybe but the first one came up with one treble in its mouth and pop about 5 feet from my floro. I guess I could have backed off my drag but I didn’t. He had the back hook of the 170 probably 20ish pounds and shot back to sea like nothing I have ever seen before. Damn those...

    Nice intel for those in North county hunting tomorrow. I am kind of surprised is was choppy today all reports show nice long stretches between swells but mixed swell with wind can make for a bumpy ride/wet ride. Hopefully the wind isn’t an issue tomorrow. Next time!!!

    Offshore Dorados and tuna

    Good call on downsizing to 14 lb. you have to wonder if the line weight changes the swim pattern of the bait, less drag more speed type of thing. I highly doubt it is a visual thing but maybe. Either way saved the day and got the lines tight.

    Gonzo that’s my concern with Dana and SI, I launch alone and it is so much easier when I just put the boat next to the dock and tie up. I don’t really like the ramps without docks to be honest. I’ve launched from S. Shores and like it, just have the theft to worry about but so was jacked out...
