So now you know you are safe to call Zacs for the weekend of Sept 8/9!

If I'm on the trip you're more than welcome to use some of my gear (I tend to bring everything I own, WAY more than I need).

Generally I think someone going on this trip should bring:

1 30 lb outfit for chunking
1 15-20 lb spinning outfit for casting to mahi and catching bait
1 jigging outfit

I'm sure there are many other options but that's where I started.

Hope to see you there.

Charlie
Thanks a bunch for the info and offer. I just might take you up on it.

The Newell is on an 8' "custom" Ugly Stick which works well for cod/haddock/pollock but is probably too light for yellowfin. If I grabbed a standup rod for the Stella somewhere do you think I'd get by? Did you see any similar setups on the last trip? Or would you just rent a Shimano setup from them?

Thanks.
hey matt - your stella 10000 will work for most fish out there. i was using a calcutta 700 for jigging on a light duty cod rod, at one point i was napping and heard a fish come over the rail - i jumped up and hooked 8 fish on jigs in a row. lost half of them. alot of these fish are in the 25-65 pound range. if you hook a bigger one well at least you'll have a good story. and get some metered braid for jigging

Quick question for anyone who jigs for these fish at all with spinning gear. Would you rather have a 5'6" 520gm or a 6'6" 325gm rod? Some things I've read seem to think the extra length is beneficial fishing on a party boat sized vessel to easier clear the rails? Are shorter (6' and less) jigging rods the norm on these trips?

the longer rod for the partyboat. vs makes a pretty good 325g one for an ok price. will double as a good bluefin jigging/casting rod if you put a bigger reel on it

Thanks niko.

*BOOKED*

The thought of the 3 hour drive before and especially after 36 hours on the boat didn't sound too great. Booked Fri - Wed in a campground on the Ditch as well.

Someone counting?

Whatever happened to the thread Skippy was to start to see: Who's In?

What size jigs were you hooking up on last year Paul? Trebles, single assist or double assist hooks? Also I think you dropped to like 50# or 30# flouro right? Anyone know what size hooks we used for chunking last year I can't seem to remember. Been stocking up on supplies etc so I'm just picking up a few things here and there instead of rushing out trying to stock up all at once.

4-6 oz hammered diamond jigs, find one with a nice flutter. Single hook on the bottom. Started with 40# flouro then went to 60#

I picked up a few of the 4oz Bomber butterfly style jigs at a recent sale. They have dual assist hooks but they look like garbage and I wouldn't trust them. I'll replace those with a single 5/0 Owner or similar.

I'll pick up some diamonds as well.

Thanks.
