Went out on a 2.5 day trip on the Islander this past Sunday with a light load of 20 onboard. Fishing was slow for the most part but we still ended up with 42 Albies and 16 YT.

I hooked 5 up with 5 Albies and 2 YT.

Here are a few pictures from the trip.

Since all the fish being caught right now is scratch fishing here is a few tips I used and got bit on.

Trolling feathers used

1 Party feather (pink,orange,yellow,green,white) I let others use my rig on their rotation for 5 fish. (4 Albies and 1 YT)

I caught 2 Albies on a Black and purple Catchy Tackle...The smallest size...

As soon as a trolling rig went off I got either tossed a megabait out or a dine...and got bit three times but lost 1.

The whole trip I never used anything less then 30# with 28# Flouro...2/0 flyliners...

So an Avet SX with 20# mono top and 65# spectra should be a tiring and fun adventure... :twisted:

So an Avet SX with 20# mono top and 65# spectra should be a tiring and fun adventure... :twisted:Yeah I personally wouldnt fish with less then 25#. If the fish get in a feeding frenzy then I'd fish 40#-50# all day......

I wish I had bought that Avet JX....

Oh well, the good ol' Penn GS545 is gonna have to work! It's only got 30# on it but I guess I'll just have to be a little bit smoooth~!

Boat leaves in 5 hours....man this is gonna be the longest wait....
