Long Odds

Another one for the books. A January WSB more North than Dana Pt? Over 140' down? Had to be a 'right place, right time" thing. Unfortunately I did not get the bite on video, as I was just lowering the camera to my fresh bait when I got bit. Greenback was the flavor of choice. Fish was caught under a huge ball of mixed finbaits that were feeding on some tiny krill or plankton.

Nice fish Greg

Sweet. Very good idea and showed great patience leaving the fish down until the seals left. Cool as a cucumber!

Peeled off 100 yards of spectra to start the fight, while towing me like a Sea Lion. By the time I had it up-and-down, it was over 160' down.

See How It's Done...

Come to the Fred Hall Long Beach Show and listen to Greg and Team Sewer on Saturday and Sunday March 10th and 11th at the Hobie Seminar area at 3pm each day.

Greg will be giving away his secrets on how to tail hook trophy Halibut and catch WSB in 150' of water.

He won't give Tony and I any secrets so I doubt he'll give away any secrets at the FHS. Come to think of it, he doesn't like either one of us so he'll probably give away his secrets to whoever is willing to meet him under the bleachers at lunch time

I guess it just depends on the type of knife and who's hand it is in? And technically, they are salmon rods.

Seriously though, there is nothing in our local waters, that I am looking to catch, that I could not handle with these rods. And there is lots of stuff that I get to the kayak that I would probably not with heavier rods.

lighter rods definitely put the "sport" in sport fishing. No doubt on the lighter tip keeping hooks from tearing out. I remember one morning in a squid bite seeing tons of hooks pulled on those WSB mouths, guys horsing em like they would a big YT.
