I have a complete set of stuff i take on LR trips and all of it is in a couple large plastic tubs this includes clothes…….the only stuff that changes is the tackle. makes it easy.
The what to do with wet socks I find challenging. Toss them out, or try to dry them out in your stateroom or outside your door at night in the hallway hanging inside your boot is all I could come up with. Maybe take them on the upper deck in a mesh drying bag so not to stink bomb your roomie.
Small amount of mineral spirits to clean the mess that sinkers wrapped in black electrical tape make on your line, when you decide to remove the lead you get black smudge on the line that could be wiped off with a solvent.
Buy some red Offshore Angler snap weights Work great, don't slide or damage line.View attachment 595426 I tried some 91% iso/alcohol for this purpose wasn't strong enough. Going with small zip ties to hold the lead in place rather than rubber bands as the lead ends up sliding down the line staining it with the black adhesive. Not sure how a swipe of mineral spirits would impact the integrity of a 130lb flouro. It's not gonna eat into the line, better than seeing this black crud on your topshot.
Check out this 13ft oarfish that surfaced and died apparently off Catalina on Monday. Bottom fishing could have it's rewards.
some jock itch spray, if your hairy, and tooth brush and mouth washPlanning out a few 3 and 4 day trips, then shooting for a real LR trip next season. My question is what have you've forgotten on a trip that you wished you hadn't? Or maybe realize once you're on the boat that you wish you had brought this, or that?
Mine is always socks... I always use more than I bring.
I think it'd be nice to see what others have forgotten so I and others might realize before we take off...
