Pic of the Week

Had another outstanding trip with Captain Patrick Dickinson of Dixie Riverside charters out of Buras, LA this past week.  My buddy Colby Beland (a CB customer) and his son Benjamin joined me and Liam.  Great trip. 

Had all new BG spinning reels spooled with Toro Tamer 20# and 30# hollow core with short leaders or drops from the popping cork of 35# Sunline Fluoro...Daiwa Lexa casting reels were spooled with 50# TT hollow core and 50# Sunline Fluoro.  

The super supple 16-strand line really stands up to the cane abrasion well...I guess because it's so soft.  Also lets you splice a loop in your hollow core and then just loop to loop to your popping cork...much stronger than any knot.  You don't need fluoro for the visibility - the water is stained - but it is really tough when it comes to catching 50+ fish on the same leader.   Mono fails at the wrong time but this Sunline is tough and knots very well...just the right amount of stretch to me.  And love that in between 35# size. 

Most reds came on live shrimp under a cork or dead shrimp on a jighead on the bottom.  The big reds and the jack came on Topwaters...I think we've hooked these  boys for life!  

Thanks for keeping me in the right tackle.  Great stuff!

Orders over $150 are shipped FREE!* Orders less than $150 are billed for shipping. Upon placing your order you'll receive an immediate confirmation via email. You are not billed at that time, the confirming email may not reflect oversize or overweight charges or other issues requiring direct contact. We process orders manually, preferring to have a human actually check things over and contact you should there be questions. Within 24 hours of placing your order you will receive a follow-up email confirmation and final  invoice (pdf doc) reflecting your total charges (Monday-Friday). You are not billed until we actually send you your final invoice.  Orders shipped to CA addresses will have California Sales Taxes applied, out of state orders are tax free. During the ordering process you can select expedited shipping if required. (Within the USA we usually ship via Federal Express ground. International, and oversize/weight items will be billed for shipping and you will be sent an emailed invoice reflecting total charges prior to actual billing. We will not ship without you having had a chance to review the invoice). Hawaii and Alaska shipping will be accomplished using USPS Priority service, and our standard shipping cost policy will apply unless the item ordered does not fit in their standard size boxes. If additional shipping fees are required we will contact you.)

As a means to reduce spam, we change the above incoming email addresses regularly. 
Please don't bother adding them to your address book.  
We do apologize for any inconvenience this policy creates. But, it's the only way we've found to post an email address on-line and not receive so many solicitations from some family member of a deceased "Nigerian" leader trying to move great sums of  $ out of the country...
