You are very welcome; curious "pescadore n jager"?? Italian and German?, drinking fisherman?

Yup! However, growing up here in SoCal, i find myself speaking a light degree of spanglish.


I'm somewhat confused, are you rigging for live bait, jigs, bombs, or Marauder?

I'll be rigging for trolling, but possibly live bait.

Thanks Luke, hopefully I'll be chiming in with a catch report and not a skunk report.

When are you gonna get your little guy on the water? I say he should be ready by next season, but you could start him off in the bay hooping for lobster.

I'd use heavy wire and crimps on the trolling outfit, and then either thick fluoro or single strand with a haywire twist on the live bait and chrome irons.

5' of 130# Fluorocarbon with a swivel on one end and a hawaiian clamp on the other. May have a few lost lures but the amount of bites increases exponentially. 100# + wire leader is just too visible and you won't get nearly as many bites. JMO

Glad you liked it! Just figured it out on my own, and couldn't resist the fun.

We did another run in the dark to the 43 in hopes of some tuna hanging out there, but only got one dodo hen. Heard of a couple wahoo caught, but none for us. We trolled from the 183 to the upper 9 and then north to LaJolla. Wasn't our day for wahoo.
