    First BFT trip of the Season - The Fish were real finicky yesterday at the Coronado’s but I managed to get one on the Colt Sniper while everything else came off the Flyline 25/30lbs Flouro on #2 hooks seemed to be the ticket. Everyone on board worked there ass off to get on the bite - Once we found a school they stuck with the boat the entire time, a couple other boats slide into our drift but ended up leaving. The boat ended the day with 27 BFT with a few Yellow tails mixed in. The YT came off a very small patty. There was some huge fish hooked up but ultimately won the battle. No takers at night either.

    Interested in why split rings to the hook vs assist hooks. Thanks for the report.

    I just replaced the factory hooks - split rings came on the jigs. They said some of the bigger BFT sawed off some people, didn’t want take a chance
