    Are masks a deal breaker?

    The answer for me is yes. There is no way I could wear a mask or buff for 10 days when it's 90 degrees out. I'm going to wait it out guys. The last thing I want to do is spend my vacation with a COVID freak you know the guy the wears a mask while driving or walking his damn dog no thank you.....

    I would not recommend it unless you are on a school of 20/30 pounders. You would get spooled in a second & snapped off. Go with 40, 50, 60, 80-100 set ups with line capacity of at least 400 yds.

    A Different Sort of Jig Storage Question

Wahoo jigs well sometimes you just can't have enough but I dedicate one of the four trays just for wahoo and have never "ran out". I figure heavy & light yoyo jigs 3 ea ...

    September 8 day vs Sept 10 day

    The gear is the same but that extra 2 days gives you time to go to cow town but you probably won't as it's too early in the season. You will spend extra time hunting wahoo , YFT , grouper ect . September trips are my favorite I enjoy the variety. Take the 10 day !
  579. eric harner

    Best jig or lure for the slide??

    The chrome 124 Raider is my go to. It will catch anything YFT , dodo, BFT, YT it's not just for wahoo. For BFT I will often use a Sumo blue & chrome as it has been very productive also.. :jig:
