    Wow, this is eye opening. We are Neurotic!!! This post so clearly puts into perspective the 1000's and 1000's of decisions we make before we ever get near the water.

    This is a great thread, I look forward to your report.

    P.S. I started with a 3/4 day (limit of nice yellowtail, HOOKED). Then a overnight, a 3 day and now two 8 days.

    Craig, like you, I took my first 3 day at a tender, young age, I was only 44! Fished a second one the following year, 1994, and then took a five year hiatus. Something about two boys, High School, off to College, you get it.

    Then, in ‘99, I became truly hooked on this whole thing with an August 5 day. An amazing experience, a Grand Slam trip on the tuna, Bluefin, Albacore, couple of nice Yellowfin at Guadalupe and then a73lb Bigeye to finish it off in 2nd place in the jackpot! I’ve been hooked ever since, like a Cow on a 12/0 7691 Mustad. Learning as we go, building a nice set of rods and reels has been an enjoyable journey. Sit back, relax and enjoy the ride!

    You’ve had some great advice here. Probably the best of it, if it’s not too late, is to stop the tackle acquisition phase, make sure you’re in touch with the office about rental tackle to fill gaps, what you really need to bring and what is available on the boat. Second part involves the crew. Ask the crew, listen to the crew.

    Could not of said it better. The crew wants you to catch fish. Ask for help and tip well

    Takes a long time, Years in fact, to get to where you realize it’s all about being in the right place at the right time and gear is secondary. Boats all have loaner gear.

    Great thing about LR is if you just suck one day you can rebound the next.

    Have a great trip!

    This.
    That first big one on an LR boat is quite the humbler.

    The long trips for the most part is recognize what the conditions tell you and change tactics when needed. Bob Mitchner, 83 years old, was the hot angler last trip. I had been putting out a chunk line on a screaming current. A fresh dead squid, market size, was sitting in the bait well. Bob put on a sliding sinker toothpick pinned and put that squid on which earned him a 290#. While others were using 100# or 80# fluorocarbon to get a bite, Bob was using 180# Seaguar blue label. Something different... When asked, Bob says that he only fishes for big fish. If the conditions are right, which they were not on this trip He would use that 180# on the bobber balloon.

    If you don't bring a minimum amount of jigs equal to my wall you probably shouldn't bother going. You obviously won't catch anything. I actually had to add a few more this past weekend.

    Gee... It is like a tackle salesman has hooked a really, really ridiculously big fish there Mr. Lake.

    That is not a Starman 112, that is a JRI-4

    What i do not see is the latest, greatest OCT-10, only 30 bucks... Guaranteed to swim when it is in the water.

    Lake,

    Where are you located and what hours are you open. I may need to pick up a few things for my next trip. : )

    I saw a picture of Fishybuzz's tackle room. Mine is nothing. He's got rods he probably hasn't touched in more than 5 years.
    You also should check out vegasandre's jig room.

    I'm just an amateur collector.

    You all do me a great service. Whenever my wife tells me that I am buying too much gear all I have to do is show her a few pictures of your well curated stockpiles and she realizes that it an't nearly as bad as it could be.

    Lucky for me she likes to eat fish as much as I do.
