182 area for one 50 pound BF lots of empty paddy’s. About a mile shy of the 182 saw birds and jumpers slid in threw a jig on the spinning reel set up and my son did the rest. Worked the 9 north and south all paddy’s were empty. Only one to report.

Yep I agree!! Not sure on the size of the jig. It’s super lite tho, bought at turners. Crazy Carl swore by it. I can cast it a mile on the spinning reel set up lol

You might want to consider using a fluoro or mono leader instead to tying braid to the lure. If it gets swallowed there's a good chance the teeth will saw it off.

Thanks for the tip. It was 65 braid, what size leader would you use?

Yes that this whole spinning reel thing is new to me. My “jig” stick is jealous!!
FYI, unless your son is left-handed, the handle should be on the other side. Dominant arm/hand holds the rod. Only writing as you seem open to tips:)
That's a great fish and day with your son!

Winner winner....Dinner on the spinner!!! Good job Pops and thanks for posting the report.

I had some bluefin yesterday (and Saturday) courtesy of @Benny Mora and it was soooo good. Hope you enjoy yours as much as I enjoyed mine.

Really easy to make these. Just peel and slice cucumbers to the thickness of a cracker. Top with tuna (or spicy tuna - add siracha and mash up), a little slice of avacado, maybe a little mango (not shown cuz the one we had was too soft), then hit it with your favorite sauce (soy or ponzu or eel, or siracha and mayo). Even people that "dont like raw fish" gobble these down. My wife's grandma (80 years old) finally admitted she likes raw fish when I made these.
