Hey everyone! Headed down to Loreto May 11th, and wondering if I should bring my own gear? I'll find a captain once I'm down there, but need to know if I should being my own gear or if they will provide it? Any advice is appreciated!
Alaska is awesome, they allow one rod case and one "tackle box" as one piece of checked luggage so I stuff a soft sided cooler with all my tackle and sundry items, slay the fish, vac pac and freeze and put in the soft sided cooler and pack all my tackle in a sturdy box (start looking early when you get there) wrapped in duct tape and head home. Had a scare once when my box of tackle didnt make it to the carousel (delivered to my house next day) and now I take pics of all my stuff in the event of a claim.FYI, I was talking to a guy while standing in line waiting for customs and I was commenting about all the 8' travel tubes in the luggage. He said as long as you declare it as sporting items to Alaska they let you bring the 8 footers. I just put my two travel rods and reels in my checked bag, but it's good to know I could bring better sticks.
