    Fish heavy gear.
    There is a big difference between a 30 ib seabass and a 50 plus pound tanker .

    Yep very surface orientated back in the day very much more so. Commercials did heavy damage with mouse traps. Along time ago. Less of those behavior fish genes are passed on now

    Took me 2 days departing from Mexico. To reach the ancient virgin bull kelp forrest. Where the tankers don't relate humans to danger

    I have convinced myself calicos and sea bass think spectra is just eal grass. Away from the crowds. Just a natural part of the environment

    Jigs have better action with straight spectra. Normally I do fish a top shot. But not in heavy bush. Lost zero swimbaits. 50# spectra cuts or breaks kelp.

    The big one I got that might be 80. Bottomed out a 65# scale easily. Was the only fish hooked on the bottom. In between a big alley in the kelp. 70 feet of water. Sand patch mixed with pinnacles between the ancient bull kelp

    Only other fish we have caught at jurassic park. Halibut and yellowtail. Zero calicos rough neighborhood. Not too far away though it has been straight calicos and nothing else. The fish world community is complex

    I'm old school, still use a Seeker SD-8, Torium 20 and depending on conditions, 3/4 egg sinker w/squid or dropper loop/squid. They will eat the swim baits too.

    I think he meant the style of fishing but even then that sounds like a decent way to catch them.
