    Scale to calibrate you reels

    Do you fish with a few wraps of mono on your reel ? If so I will show you the old school way to set your drag on all of your reels no matter the line class. This will allow you to get the feel of the drag as most people don't break out the scale on day 4 of fishing. See you on the boat.

    Revolving Skully

    So why not coat the grip wait till tacky,then mix new epoxy with glitter and do your dip and dab .One more coat over the top and done . Cuts out the super glue and the shall we say the over spray issue . I do like it . Just my 2 cents

    Blank choices for wahoo rig

    The why well lets just say you want a stiff tip seeing on when she bites you dont want to give her the swing you just want to grind on her untill she makes a run . You dont need a long rod because you dont need to cast to the moon they will be around the boat . So 7 foot and stiff NO soft tip ...

    Good luck with that just hope you can live with that when it happens to you . I have never had to hand off , taken a time out or been DQed and feel it takes both you and the crew to get your fish in unless you think you can gaff your fish and bring it on board also ?

    Well if your only going to go on 1 long trip a year I would say an early trip . You have more places to go . If HB is not on you have the beach to go for BIG tuna and PV both of witch cool off latter in the season. The Islands ar open with in 6 miles of them .If you have any more question pm me .

    Slickest mono to hollow connection ever

    My 2 cents MMMM I looked at it and its not bad ,you still tie a knot . So do not use the uni link but tie an over hand knot where the uni link would go and your done . Try it out , I can tell you that I have NEVER had an over hand knot connection fail . Many over 100# and a hand full over 200# .

    TOPSHOTS....."serve" 'um or crimp 'um?

    my 2 cents Crimps and knots FAIL !!! I have seen them both slip or break . For your 80 and 100 lb mono with reg roller guides you can put the mono up inside hollow braid and are you ready for the hard part sit down for this one all you do is put it in a few feet and tie an over hand knot at the...

    Heads up if you get bait in L.A. or Long Beach anytime soon

    Year around in long beach would get my vote ! O how about at every boat ramp once a day or night at a random time for just 2 or 3 hours . NO thats way to smart . As far as the wsb in the bt , bet you the guy would be ok as long as the wsb looked ok and not with a hole in his mouth . Just like...

    I have in the past the 1 1/4 spiner head works well when the fish are moving around . The nice thing is you can cast it or troll it and the bones and barrs LOVE it . Cs will come out from the bush it eat when the bait is around . Going to fish SD bay next week with the boy . Going to hang a few...

    Newport to Seal Beach Sun 3/15/09

    A few questions if you dont mind Did both pipes have alot of kelp on them ? Growing all the way to the top ? Did you have a look at Newport Reef ? Have not fished that place in about 3 years . When its good on the pipe the water turns gold with so many Cs in the water . Thanks

    Good Show and NICE C . When was it filmed anyone ? Can I say 2 words Trap Hook !
  273. Derf284

    Harness or Use the Rail?

    Thats a great shot . Now just think of a guy comming down the rail with a hot fish and he has got to go UNDER you ! How fast can you get up and out of his way so he does not burn you off ? At some point in the fight you will use the rail but boy when you can get into your harness get into it...

    Well just showed my FB and he said it best if we were to go to a mlpa meeting I would :1041677399: and my friend would :Exploding_Smiley:so I dont think it would do that much good if we went . Now what do I do to fight for my right , I have not killed a C bass in the 15 years of fishing D.P...

    look at the last part of what you said ! Is that not what I said in not so many words ? Wrong NO close yes .
  279. Derf284


    Ok blue and yellow are CR only and from the looks of it you can have any ANY fish on board if you are in that zone . Got it .
  280. Derf284


    I got the RED whats the blue and yellow stand for . CR ?
  281. Derf284

    Will this change the rules??

    WOW over 5 hrs way to many things can go so bad in that time . Better to be lucky than good .
  282. Derf284

    D.P. not the best

    Not to much as the con were not that great . First fish was a 6 lbs C on the scale NICE and we watched him swim away . After that they were all small and few . Water 57.7 and dirty with nice west swell GGGRRRR . In the water by 6 am out by 11:30 . Will try again Thursday if it does not :Singin_In

    The One That Got Away

    Well I dont want to seem like an ass but I have gotten a 282 on 80# and 284 on 130# line and they did not fight the same as the 250 and under class of fish .The 180 - 220 were bad ass all the way to the end .Biger ones seem to me that they would just feel heavy big tail beat but no long runs...

    calstar grafighter tuna rod

    David I think we all try and give the guy our 2 cents I dont see where he asked about reels , and wide 50s are out of style !
  294. Derf284


    Well how hot was it , what side of the boat were you on , day time or night ,I mean come on tell us more !!!!!! jk
  295. Derf284

    calstar grafighter tuna rod

    My 2 cents You should have a rod that fits you where the reel seat is to fast or slow action . When your on a big fish you will see what I mean . Good luck
  296. Derf284

  298. Derf284

    Nail knot as connection method....

    My 2 cents I have seen servings and crimps slip and some just out right Fail . But an over hand knot right at the end of the spectra and your mono goes up in about 4 feet . Works just fine for me on big fish and its way fast .
  299. Derf284

    Belt or Harness?

    My 3 cents I have yet to see a guy that is on the rail lift the rod up (with NO help) in time for somone to get under them and past them .It always jams that person up . The guy has to back off on the drag and then lift the rod up and over most the time with crew helping . Now the guy in the...
  309. Derf284

    Belt or Harness?

    my 2 cents Tie you big rod to your car and have someone drive off JUST holding the rod and reel . Then get in your harness and do the same . I think when your in a harness you got so much more controll ,but get ready to do BOTH when your on a big one . Good luck

    Fishing Wahoo to wire or not to wire

    My 2 cents Bombs 90#wire Iron sea strike 33 no wire or floro Bait 60 ,40 , and to have fun 20 single strand On the hook type I use an expensive J hook for bait the sharper the better .Some guys do use the C hook and like it . As for "throwing a Raider " well I guess I should bite my tongue ...

    Setting up 40# and 50# reels?

    My 2 cents is to put what ever your adding on to the front end so you know how long your top shot is . Then put it on the spool first ,how often will you get down that low ?
  316. Derf284
