    Please dont touch my drag

    Short leader, heavy line, small hook, stiff rod. All these factors should be taken into consideration. I’ve pulled hooks by bumping up the drag under that combination and that was my fault. Deckhand should ask a few more questions before doing anything to the reel.

    Captain/crew fishing during a bite

    Does it count as fishing when the deckhand pulls line onto the reel by hand while you just turn the handle and sweat because you are too old or out of shape to finish the job? Seen that too many times and nobody complains unless that becomes the jackpot winning fish. Must have learned that from...

    $13.00 Burger on a Sport Boat

    I think this has to do with the Green New Deal and how cow farts are bad for the ozone. California is discouraging carnivores while Texas incentivizes us. Glad to be in a state where my bad eating habits are considered population control. Now the question is, which Texas boats have bedbugs? o_O

    $13.00 Burger on a Sport Boat

    I think we all know when the chef decides to add something “extra” to jack up the price. For example, Truffle anything turns a regular burger or fries into a ridiculous luxury tax. I guess ambiance is also a type of luxury tax. Where you eat something is part of that. I don’t mind paying a...

    Yeah. I also have the PAC73 which is why I am selling this rod. Too similar to justify keeping and I am not a collector. The PAC73 is a 7ft 3 piece called the Finger Rod. These were known for finger jigs (aka minijigs or trout tubes). The soft tip makes it easy to load and cast the light jigs...

    New Lo-Ann late report

    Agreed. That is exactly why many long range boats instituted a process of boarding that eliminates the temptation for a Johnny-come-lately to sour any feelings on a trip.

    Cutting the line is cutting the line regardless of age or intentions. If the guy is disabled, that is a different story. Mid 60’s is not in that category. That would have been a different ending if I had left work early, fought traffic, and jockeyed to find parking all to be beat by the...

    going to be in NZ for 3 weeks in december Guides?

    What Bob said is right about everybody being super nice. I would check the regs as most inlet waters that he mentioned around Taupo are off limits to spin fishing now (I guess some things have changed in 25 years:-)). Taupo and the Rotoroa lakes are known for their smelt runs (tiny baitfish)...

    what do you use to spool your reels at home?

    Instead of the wooden dowel between the tennis balls, I use a plastic chopstick (thickest you can find). I put the chopstick between my big toe and second toe on both sides so I can put pressure on the tennis balls with my feet. Sorry no pictures. No pedicures for me.

    going to be in NZ for 3 weeks in december Guides?

    I can recommend the guides below for trout. Unless you fly fish, most trout spots will be off limits in NZ. They consider spin fishing like using dynamite. Most people that fish in NZ are amazing with a fly rod, so the fish get hammered in all the good holes. I don’t fly fish and both these...

    Best travel rod?

    Phenix Redeye Travel Rod for Mazatlán

    The spinning 760S is a good rod. I felt that baitcaster rods were a little short on the butt end. I like to fish with the rod butt under my arm, and it was not long enough to do that comfortably for me. Mileage may vary for alligator armed anglers.

    Jammed Reel Seat - Phenix 809XHJ

    Rubber strap wrench if is is the locking nut. If the reel foot is stuck in the hood, grab the face of the reel and slam the butt straight down hard on the floor. Might take a few times, but don’t touch the rod when you do it. Just make sure the rod can land somewhere without damaging guides.

    I would add user preferences like “run and gun” or “bait and wait”. Fishing styles vary by fisherman and “captain’s call” can be a surprise. Also “boat cleaning required”, “beer included” “fuel extra” and the ever-popular “non-smoking” would be good to know up front. That way someone can...

    Clips for swimbaits and surface iron

    The ones in the pic look like Tactical Angler Power clips. I believe that is what Benny said he uses when I fished with him. Decoy also makes some good clips.

    Spinning Gear? I left and what happened???

    Exactly. Just a mutual respect for shortcomings of both styles. Neither one is without challenges. No way I'd try a spinner on that one in my avatar. Time and a place for the heavy artillery. Just fun to try different tackle when they aren't all that big.

    Modified Balloon Rig

    Great advice. I'll mess with it boatside. Didn't remember that the extra line would weigh the balloon down so low flying baits near the boat will automatically touch down farther out.

    Modified Balloon Rig

    Makes sense. I was thinking a balloon could be fished in closer than the kite or when the wind is weak. We'll be fishing the kite too so I could double up. Seems like the balloon might float at a different angle than the kite to cover more water. There was also concern that the wind spinning the...

    Modified Balloon Rig

    Thanks for the replies. My concern is having to match the lift of the balloon perfectly to the weight of the bait to maximize the time it spends splashing on top.

    Modified Balloon Rig

    Been noticing that whenever a helium balloon is used, the balloon is tied directly to the line (using rubber band or string) so that it doesn't move. Was thinking that it might be better to allow it to slide along the line to more easily control the depth of the bait. The kite rig uses this...
