and a few for me to loose !  ::)

Also working with local sinker guy, buying lots of 10 oz sinkers for bottom fishing for yellows, sheepshead, black seabass and the pinto bass. Last year we lost about 5 sinkers per person per day

Let me know if anyone would like some, my plan is to bring around 20...last year had about 10 to start, lost them all, bought 6 on the island and lost them all too! Gonna bring extra and leave them behind this year if I happen to not lose them all

I've never used a dropper loop at Cedros!  I bring a couple of 4oz for the Sabiki's.  I use a 2oz leadhead with a swimbait or a 6xJr to plumb the depths!

The two times I went I brought 4 sinkers ( 2 oz6 and 2 8oz) and left them with the captain. I did a lot of deep dropping but did not loose many. I wonder if you guys were fishing a hungry bottom spot.

At this rate we will all be at 72 lbs in jigs and sinkers ........... ;)

We definitely were fishing some hungry spots.... kelp forests for the sheepshead can be brutal since the fish can kelp you even 30 feet off the bottom. Couple that with some screaming current and hangy rocks and my tackle bag experienced a major lightening!


We never deliberately dropper looped for yellows (and I never did get a bite on the yoyo jigs, all but 2 of those are staying home this year), but Bottom fishing saved ron and I on the last day last year. Headed north and tried everything for no luck on yellowtail until we went for a bailout bottom fishing. Current was screaming (needed 2 8s to hold) but we had a blast getting the pinto bass, and Ron got our only yellowtail and a halibut on the bottom. Hit up a black seabass spot on the way home and I got a baby and Martin had a big one that we couldn't stop. Sure beat more trolling around without luck or another long day driving around for Dorado without a sniff.

Somehow i bet this year most of those sinkers are staying on cedros, either in the kelp or on the panga  ;D . Somehow I bet a few jigs will end up as ornaments on the kelp Christmas tree as well

mike, i'll have everything set up for you.  the sea harbor hotel prices are insane.  we may have to give up on them. 
send me an email at alantani@yahoo.com for questions!

My best day for goats was when we fished next to some local fishermen diving for moon snails. They'd break them with a hammer on the boat and throw the shells & guts over the side. The Sheepshead were stacked up under them! One of the guys was our pangueros cousin and hooked us up with snail meat for bait!

for the next trip, my 50 pound trolling/fly line outfit will be a mak 10 and a phenix bdh 809. my 50 pound yoyo/surface iron outfit will be an andros 5II and a phenix bdh 838, and my calico rig will be a lexa 400 and a phenix abyss 806. i'm also bringing a couple of fishing syndicate rods to play with.

anyone got an extra lexa 400 that they want to sell?  i have a calico rod but i need a reel for mike pate.

Sell a Lexa hd 400hs-p?  No, but I can bring one for peaches to use.

Abyss 806 with a Lexa 400? That's a whippy 15# bait stick! A bd 808mh or 809h would be better.  Hybrid 809xh for 50? Ok, but I like a 7 1/2'er for slow trolling and fly lining Mac's and yo-yo but it's based on what feels best to you... I'd go with one of your many hybrid 760xh's.
