    New fish cleaning requirements for the Sporties?

    Typically there is a little blood line left to trim on standard filets prior to the skin being left on. Same deal with the skin filets. It is a little more work to pull the skin off but does not require special equipment other than your hands.

    Late August YFT recomendations please

    What test line you use has more to do with bait than fish size. If it is anchovies a 20lb outfit that can cast it 15 feet away from boat is good. Sardine a 30 to 40lb out fit with 25 and 30 lb flouro leader about 3 feet is good. Don't make the leader too long knot needs to clear top guide before...

    Legend 1.5 Day 6/29

    I was on that trip I got a bluefin on a 4 oz. crippled herring in anchovy in the morning. Smaller 3.5 oz. megabaits in anchovy seemed to be working too. The halcos were working well on the troll but it seemed like they would hit pretty much anything I got a yellowfin on a Mex Flag Zuker. Fish...

    corn for carp?

    Carp have pharyngeal teeth that grind and break things up in the back of their throat, pulverising and mashing the corn. Chum with bread balls made with the corn juice if legal.

    Seal huggers are out to get me

    The seals are probably going in the water because they see spear fisherman and hope to catch any fish they stir up or wound. They are obviously not afraid of people as people are marching by on the seawall constantly and that where the seals are hanging out. The narrator's ignorance is amazing...

    Making the most of your Humboldt squid, w/pics.

    Cool post. Once in the East Cape 2 years ago, we wanted to catch triggers for ceviche, the deckhand gave us the squid's lungs sliced for bait, they worked great. Later that day we used the mantle to chum for and catch tuna and dorado.
