I understand zjimmy used to run a boat.Lots of guys using the Jimmy bombs. (Is he really a Captain?) Catchy bombs were in use as well and I saw some guys throwing the Strike Master bombs. It was pretty good fishing we had. So glad that Andy chose to spend a second night on the anchor on the Ridge. Last morning the boat put 50 Wahoo in the RSW in 3 hours and we had to bail at 9:00. That was the 6 day 9/23-29 trip on the Rooster.
I was wired up with about 20" of 90 lb stranded wire. Andy recommended 69 lb single strand.
captain told me the largest wahoo he ever saw come aboard (100lb+ on the excel) came from a torpedo sinker with a nutter butter wrapper super glued to it....so go figure, lol.
Mark from Mission Viejo....hmmm...I'm pretty sure the color was "cow bell" right? LolYeah, well, no one said fish are smart. However, to quote Steinbeck: It has always been my private conviction that any man who pits his intelligence against a fish and loses has it coming.
just got off the Excel 10/05 from a 10 day. . o threw the green and yellow captain jimmy bomb, with 90 lb soft wire leader. constantly bit. 13 myself... mostly on above bombs.. 277 for the boat... GOOD LUCK .. KNOCK THEM DEAD !!!what wahoo jig or bomb has been working well on these past recent trips I'm going on a nine day on the shogunThursday and I would just like a little bit of insight
