I went out on a 3/4 day boat for bottom fish just to mix it up and give myself a little relaxer trip because I’ve been going none stop 2 times a week long trips for the last 4 or so months.. so we go out and we start dropping, I lost not one of my favorite slow pitch jigs but all 3 of them... I hooked my best one on the anchor rope but got it back, then proceeded to hook a gillnet I think it was and lost it there. This object was so large 12 people all spread out on the boat hooked and got stuck in it. I also lost my other jig to a cut off in the rock, and I lost my third jig when a deckhand cut it... Rest In Peace my friends, you caught many big fish...

Always tough to lose the ones that are getting bit. Luckily, they still make these!

We got into a net out at 'Nic once. Dumped a round of gear on that one. Frustrating, because you can feel it come up a few feet... then it stops.

Losing jigs like that on a multi day trip is kinda like running out of cocaine....except there ain't no dealers out there.

"Hey buddy......can I borrow a Jax...? Yeah....just a small one, I swear" (while scratching your forearm....)
