It is that time of year again when the long trips are returning.. For those anglers who have fished already I do encourage you to contribute to this ongoing thread.. Lets see some of your new and classic photos from current and past trips..

Tight lines,

Jeff

Reliving the moment through writing. Dont want to forget. Gosh its been a long time. I will be back when I have more gray hair.

Shogun Team Redondo 6 day year 2009 when Lupe Mammals were packing YFT. Chasing these 60-120LB YFT around Lupe reminded me of fishing the lower banks for Largers on mammals. Same deal but everything is smaller in a much smaller area with island scenery. My buddy Reid gifted me this trip as he could not make it and I was vising from CR at the time. Went 9.5/10 fishing a 765XL, Avet JX, 65LB JB solid to 100' of 60LB JB Hollow, Inline splice of 8-12' of 40LB Seaguar Flouro, 3/0 Ringed Gorilla.. No loop to loop I don't like the 4 legs and no pre made inline wind ons. For me its faster to just inline splice the Flouro right into the hollow, 2 sato crimps, glue, done. 1 Minute, Make as needed and you loose less spectra..

50-60-80LB is recommended. I like 40# for Tuna fishing Lupe.

This drift was good but had the smallest grade we encountered.

When did Tady start making a 7x???

might have to get me a few of those!
I think those are available, same section of the tackle shop where you'll find those deadly Salas 45 jigs.
