Tackle Tip Thursday Vol. 122 (Haywire twist)

October 22nd, 2020|Capt Art's Blog, Tackle Tip Thursday|

It’s Tackle Tip Thursday! Today we have Searcher Team member Justin talking Wahoo. Justin gives us the the run down on a must use knot for the wahoo season. It’s time to stock up before the season begins. He teaches us how to do the haywire twist knot. You will need a lure such as the Raider lure, wire 60# (is what justin suggests) and line. Huge thank you to Justin for the great tackle tip.

Trip #29: Oct 18-25 (7 day) Ultra-limited Load

October 21st, 2020|Capt Art's Blog, Trip Reports|

Good evening anglers,

We looked at a lot of unproductive kelps this morning in beautiful 74.5 degree water. We decided to slide into the beach this afternoon to try for some yellowtail. We found some, but they just did not want to bite. We managed a handful of 18-22lb yellowtail and this 40lb sea bass! We will be on the beach again tomorrow looking for yellowtail.
