    Just got home from fishing Old Glory Sport Fishing we ended the day with 33 BFT and 12YFT at Clemente. I ended up with big fish @ 65.5lbs. Hooked up around 5:30 am right before Grey light. I had a glow in the dark flat fall and switched it out to the Williamson’s KOIKA jig with my 80# 16VSX 200 feet down, got hit on the retrieve. The second BFT was on the flyline 30lbs Flouro on the Penn Fathom 15. The weather was perfect. Lots of fish lost on today, I was hooked up on a nice grade fish for over an hour, was on a nasty 3 fish tangle and the deckhands Kevin & Brooks managed to untangle all three of us, they cut one line off and spliced it back on the reel while the fish was still on and managed to get me and the other dude untangled. While the other two fish were landed I continued fighting my fish to end up getting sawed off. Anyways it was a fantastic trip, Kley, Rob, Chappie in the galley, Doug on the bait and the two deckhands and Kevin & Brooks are all Bad Ass, Epic crew for sure and fun to fish with with! This crew can get it done!!!!

    Glad that you had a good trip! I loved the picture looking along the side showing that #@*&# overhang. Hits me in the head, bends my rods, that is why I can't fish the Old Glory even though it's a fine operation. You have to love marine architects who don't fish.

    Just angle the rods in the rack, or just get in-line early to grab the few open rod holders that aren’t under the overhang or get the racks at the bow. this boat gets it done plus the Captain and crew are epic so the rod racks and over hang don’t bother me.😀

    Any chance you can show a shot of that jig when you get a minute please. Looks like you flipped it around & used a fixed hook on the bottom. Sick report-thx.

    I did use a Mustad Single hook. I dropped all my jigs off at my Local Tackle shop to have them rigged with 200# mono leader and that one was rigged like that, decided to leave it and fish it, as that jig was the perfect size and color of some of the bait. I’ll probably just leave it like that, only 2-3 fish on the boat from jigs, I know one for sure was on the knife jig, but it was snagged on the side.
