    In my opinion luck is when something fortunate happens that you weren't expecting or were not trying to make happen...
    Fishing at a high level means there are thousands of variables going through your head as you are going about trying to be successful...not to mention the physical abilities that have been honed after many hours at the rail..
    That's work and far from luck in my opinion and it's what leads to consistant success that you seem to have...
    I'm not saying that other people's definition of luck doesn't apply it's just that I would much rather be good and consistant than lucky which is anything but reliable..

    no rod belt….however, i do own that small aftco one and like it a lot.

    I do tend to get bruises in the lower groin area…. its just that when i catch/hook up to them, i dont wear the belt and dont really think about it when fighting fish

    Are you using Fluorocabon leaders?
    Crimps work better than knots?

    Great job !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Remember Billy on your last post? I said you play second fiddle to none--and you did it again. Nice technique by the sharp looking young man--is that rod sticking into his leg, or is there a belt? Either way, he has a perfect angle--and again you proved what a quality spinning outfit can do. Great shots.

    Billy,

    Did you change out your trebble hooks on the halco poppers and the single hook on the orca?
