Everywhere else: mostly #6's, some #4's, some #8's.

Only a Blue Moon

I think this is one of those “tribal” notions in fishing that has some thread of truth based on who you talk to and where you’re talking about (like an “urban legend”). Not to be obtuse, I’ve done a...

Sean, this is a great post . . . enlightening. I think anyone who regularly fishes from shore will gain a lot of insight on the nature of the sport from a boating perspective. Things are definitly...

Gamakatsu SC-15's lead the pack, in my opinion, for all hard-jawed fish - including the King. 1/0 for babies (under 40 #s), 2/0 for big fish, and probably 3/0 for Homosassa. They come in extra-strong...
