Tackle Talk Live (on the boat 3/24)

2020-03-30T16:26:00-07:00March 25th, 2020|Capt Art's Blog|

Are you in quarantine, sheltering in place, at home with the kids?

We were talking tackle and answering questions. Bluefin are showing so let’s review gear (rods, reels and lures) and practice the best knots to use. Let us help you get your fishing gear ready and practice your knots for fishing season! We know times are tough, and maybe buying more gear isn’t an option. Let’s focus on using what you’ve got. And practice, practice, practice! ⁠

We have seen some videos of some anglers practicing with the kiddos or grandkids or even hooking a dog or cat toy. They are the best test of how strong your knot is. (Or so we have heard.) Test it out and send us videos.

Happy Monday! Let’s stay focused on the fishing season that is fast approaching. 👆👆Click the video.👆👆You know you want to. It’s been sanitized for your protection. It is safe to click.
