Recently posted on the Fishermans Landing web site front page;Looks like I’m going to be able to get away for a birthday trip, 2.5 day on the Vagabond May 13-16. Because I’m coming down from Reno for this trip, I’ll only be bringing 3 reels and borrowing rods from my friend, Joe. I’m thinking 25-30 for flylining, 50-60 for YoYo iron and maybe sinker rig, and then a big gun for 100-130, fish the knife jig bridled to a 9/0 Super Mutu.
FTHXN15LD2, FTH40NLD2 and Mak 16SEa.
Aw Steve…best that this stuff is used. I hope you hook a fish that rips the shit out of it…kidding…that you rip the shit out of. Happy Birthday and see you in the morning.Well, plans from six weeks ago sure changed. Now seeing more big Bluefin in the mix, I’ve kinda revised the list of reels. In fact those three are not on the list!
FTH30LD2 is backed with 60 lb hollow and topshots will be 40-50
BX2-600N is also backed with 60 lb and topshots will be 60-80
ATD12T is a Super and filled with 80 lb hollow, topshot 100#
ATD30T with the top 200’ marked every 50’ connected to another 300‘ also marked every 50’ and topped with a lengthy chunk of 150# Seaguar Premier.
I’m keeping my friend Joe down in San Diego busy, trying to match a loaner quiver for me to use. He’s also loaning me his buffed out HX Raptor with a generous topshot of 50# mono. I’ll use that for the 100-150 gram Sniper and Zakana jigs.
