    Soda not responding right now, he is too busy buying everything at the show, however, Beverly is with him and might slow him down a bit.

    I was out on the Angler a couple weeks ago now and although, the bites were tough to come by, the quality grade at Hurricane was amazing. We also had regulation size sardines which has not been the case until recently. The current was on and off, but unless the weather will not allow it, I'd hope to spend most, if not all your fishing days at Hurricane. I also do not drop in with anything less than 100#. In our six days at Hurricane, we had no success fishing at night, PL68, large baits or the chandelier. Everything was on flylined sardines on 5/0 hooks. Seek out the biggest sardine available. Butt hooked or shoulder hooked baits worked best. Small weights accounted for very few fish. The kite was productive for us. 1.5 times through the rotation. Put your time in at the rail and your time will come. Don

    It is so much fun to watch a new fisher person on their first long trip. Seeing a fish bigger than yourself put on deck with all the colors. I still never forget the feeling. But there is so much more.

    we got back from our trip 2 weeks ago.... Interesting we caught our largest fish at the buffer zone.....yes the overall grade was better at the bank but the cows came from the buffer zone....we only had 10 kite fish and the chandelier was effective, in fact two cows were caught using it....my largest fish, 180# was caught using a 4 oz weight.

    Just saying that conditions change...the buffer zone can be biting good and the Bank dead ...that's fishing.

    It had been my impression from Andy that, in general, you go to the Bank to fill the boat, and go to the Buffer zone to settle the jackpot. On our January 2016 trip, we spent all week at the buffer zone, caught 150 tuna, and 7 cows up to 274. The AA caught a supercow next to us. I agree with Fishy - conditions change, that's why they move around.

    So excited for her! I can't wait to find out how much it weighed. All she talked about before she left was she hoped she'd catch a really big fish. Not bad for a girl who didn't start fishing until 18 months ago. A big thank you to all who encouraged her and who helped her make this happen!!! I'm one proud Momma!
