The last couple of days it's been rough offshore and the counts are rat Yellowtails and not vast quantities of them.  It should pick back up in the next couple weeks or else we'll be fishing with 15-20# and getting most of the fish on the troll.

I thought you guys were doing a 5 day trip and if you are I'm sure you won't spend the whole time in the 2 day range. Cedros, Benitos islands can come into play along with some of the banks like Uncle Sam's.

The standard would be plugs and feathers:


If it saves you the hassle of bringing some, you borrow any of these since I can't use them all at the same time. You can also replace the leader on any you choose to use just for peace of mind.

Just an FYI,

Our Local Big 5 Sporting Goods stores are having a pretty decent sales.  I picked up a displayed Talica 16II for $353 out the door.  The sales ends Saturday.

Spirit of Adventure enthusiasts, I met Alan at the range (we got some shooting in) I dropped off the Tank and a rod.  Anyone and everyone on the trip should try it out.  It is a fine reel.  Have fun with it as I have had over several trips.  Its gotten, tuna, marlin, dorado and rooster fish and perform flawlessly.  Dominick

Leave the gun.  Take the cannolis.

I forgot to mention that I had planned to take the reel on my Baja trip 6/10-17 but the trip overlapped with the SOA so I won't get to use it this month but I'll take it when I go back in November.  Tim I do alright for an old guy.  The funny thing is I never tried shooting left handed.  Next time.  Alan has a couple of Sigs and I rented a Glock 9mm.  The Glock was fun but I liked Alan's guns better.  Dominick
