Here's Alan's photo of the stern.    Put some shrink tube or wrap the butt with tennis racket tape like the rod in the second photo.

The SOA has solid rails so no slings can be used.

I knew there was something else I'd forgotten... squid jigs! (Just ordered five glow-in-the-dark ones on eBay)   Cheesy

Our guys in N Y use the cloth covered Squid Jigs. They rub Smelly Jelly on them. They say it attracts Squid to the jig.

Yeah, I saw those... but since I've had good luck with the plastic ones, I stuck with them. Besides, I don't much like the sound of "Smelly Jelly"... gross!  Lips Sealed

I was given an AFTCO Alijos fighting belt as a gift, but it fits a bit uncomfortably(hits me in the wrong spot) Grin Shocked Shocked ... It is a weight issue...I have lost quite a bit of weight but have a ton to go. Do I really need a large belt for a trip like this?

The likelihood of running into cow YFT is slim, I'm leaving my belt and plate at home.

Leave the gun.  Take the cannolis.

We have exceptional albacore fishing off of the Oregon coast and I fish for them all season.  I'm not all that interested in targeting them on this trip but it would be real nice to find the BFT.
