    I wasn't aware you could keep fishing after having caught your limit.

    You are always allowed to fish until boat limits are reached so that everyone gets to go home with fish.

    For a 250 gram flat fall, I swap the stock hooks with an 11/0 2x strength owner J hook, with an 11/0 owner split ring. I'm amazed Shimano doesn't sell flat falls designed for 30 pounds of drag to be put on the lure, must have seen 10 nice tuna come unbuttoned or have the thread that holds the hook on chewed through yesterday.

    Pretty simple.....Cost. Kanji Jigs, from Japan, appears to be an exact copy of the Flat Fall. The difference is that Kanji Jigs have a better finish, no hooks, and costs more. Looks to me like Shimano took a generic blank, put a cheap finish on it, and flooded the US market at a cheaper price. Good marketing. Just my opinion. I could be wrong. Most people change out the hooks on their poppers. Same goes with their jigs. The only poppers that I have seen that come with strong hooks are from OTI. Others don't come with any hooks at all.

    I was under the impression you can, first off you are fishing so you really never know what you will catch, perhaps a different species whose limits haven't been filled? Also the concept of boat limits is what really counts in this case. You can gift fish to less fortunate until the less fortunate's limits are full too.

    Though not always in the spot light like some of the "big dogs" The Pacific Queen has remained a class act and a proven fish catcher. I've had the pleasure of knowing and fishing from the boat clear back to its Pacific Landing days in LB. For those of us who knew Eddie McEwen, original owner, we were truly privileged. I had the pleasure of fishing the boat with my buddy, the late Bill Miyagawa Sr. There was concern when Eddie first brought the Queen to SD. At the dock it was hidden behind the huge boats owned back then by Bruce Barnes and Bill Poole. But, Eddie continued to produce and carry his share of passengers. A great boat and a great guy.

    So you can't keep fishing and catch and release? I thought you could still C&R after limits?

    Btw the guys back east when speed vertical jigging like to use swivel to split ring ... Have an assist hook with Kevlar tied up to the split ring... Then you can swap out jigs easily and seems to have a more natural presentation on the drop but I guess if it ain't broke why fix it ;) nice trip.

    C&R after you have your limit? I don't think it works that way. Technically, the last fish you caught would be one over limit, even though you released it.

    No, if you have limits on board (technically there were a number of other species they could have been fishing for, but regardless) then you are over limits to keep fishing. This prevents people from "culling" to up their quality and dump dead fish over board.

    Ok but like you said there are other fish in the ocean, I doubt anyone can enforce that, I'd say I'm trying to catch a yellowtail or yellowfin tuna lol...and if you can't C&R and instead dump dead smaller fish to keep a larger fish, you don't belong in the ocean fishing next to me.
