    2/9-1.5 day trip to Colonet on the Pacific Queen

    Interesting your friend did so well on the low gear. I was on this trip as well and got 4 but I was reeling as fast as possible for the first half of the water column. Mine were all on the red but the guy next to me got 3 on scrambled egg and 1 on blue/white. The thing that seemed to be most...

    Colonett 1.26.2019

    I'll be on the queen this weekend and this is what I'm bringing. Jigs: Tady 4/0, Salas 7x, JRI 66, and Salas 6x Jr. Not too concerned with color as you are fishing these jigs in 150-300 ft of water. Lots of rods will work but I like a heavy rated 6-7 ft rod. Minimum 50 lb mono with a high...

    tackle recommendation on condor 1.5day

    I was on the queen 2 weeks ago and used 60lb and got my limit quickly. The crew was more convinced that hook size was more important than line size. I started with an Owner 2/0 and then dropped to a Gamakatsu 2/0 since hook size is not standardized. I'd bring 1/0 to 5/0 for hooks. Also you can...

    Torium 14 Info

    Could anyone could provide some info or experience using the new Torium 14 or 14HGA? I'm interested in using it as a small tuna reel for fish up to 30lbs, but not sure if it's too small for that application. Looking at the specifications from Shimano it looks like it'd be a great small...

    True forgot to mention the greasy calm weather. Looks like we got lucky as it is going to blow this weekend.

    PQ Colonet 1/12-1/14

    I used the JRI 66 in red. The heavier irons were getting bit better probably just because they were in the zone faster than the lighter ones.

    PQ Colonet 1/12-1/14

    Loaded up last Friday night and only 22 of us had signed up for the trip which is the first time I've been on the Pacific Queen with such a light load. Gavin gave us the game plan of looking for yellowtail for a bit and then switching over to rockfish if they weren't biting. We stopped multiple...

    Starnge Lingcod Parasite - Any Idea What it is?

    It's a type of isopod. You'll see them in the gills or on the tongue of some of our local fish, especially sand dabs.

    Commander 9/11

    Returned last Sunday from a great trip aboard the Commander! I almost canceled the morning of cuz I had a sore throat and felt a cold/fever coming on but figured I could tough it out and I didn't want to lose my deposit. The day before had been tough on the fleet with most boats only getting a...
