Got out Saturday for a long day. 14 hrs on the water, 1 46" and 4 rips. Rips were spread out, no specific window. Nothing on the majors. Seemed like they were short hitting.
Tried 3 different areas and got a rip(s) at each.
Have to thank Kevin Pischke (Lay in a Line Guide Service). Went out with him for a 1/2 day the previous weekend when a buddy had a cancellation and asked me to fill a seat.
Learned some new trolling techniques, tips on running a really tight set cleanly, and some new triggering techniques I had not seen before. Got me fired up to go out and try some new stuff.
In exchange he got to watch me hang both ends off the boat and fight the flu all morning. Fair trade. : )
If you are looking for a guide who teaches I would highly recommend him.
