FishingFury on World Fishing Journal

You may have seen FishingFury.com make a quick appearance (1 minute and 10 seconds to be exact) the World Fishing Network a few weeks back, if you missed it, here’s the scoop.

A couple of months ago, I was asked to do a quick interview for a show on the World Fishing Network called World Fishing Journal. Naturally, I jumped at the opportunity to represent our site and talk about social media and the fishing world. A lot of the interview didn’t make the final cut but I had a great time being on camera and I got to include my youngest son Reno.

Throwback Thursday

It’s that day of the week where we go back through our archives and dust off some old gems. This is more than just housekeeping. We’re adding new content and images you’ve never seen before! This week we have two fantastic fishing reports from 2005 when Clive and I were both living and fishing in La Paz, Mexico. Stay tuned for more throwback updates in the coming weeks!

Beginner’s Luck, Gracefully Out-Fished by a Novice

Beginners Luck, Gracefully Out-Fished by a NoviceIt’s been difficult finding fishing partners in La Paz since Clive left for the British Virgin Islands. I’ve some found people willing to go, but not after they find out we leave Fishermen’s Fleet at 5am. There’s not many people interested in waking up hours before the sun in the land of cheap cerveza, but I managed to convince Mike Brum and Philip Barbosa. Promising them an unforgettable experience before they went to bed, I set the alarm for 4AM.

I made sure to find out how much time they needed to get ready since I’m generally awake and out the door in 5 minutes for any situation. To my surprise everyone was sticking to the plan. I thought for sure I would lose at least one of them since there are only two chairs in the panga boat, but they were both awake and ready in no time. We arrived at Fishermen’s Fleet and headed upstairs for some coffee and breakfast. I couldn’t believe my eyes when I saw how many people were waiting. It would take four huge vans to shuttle us to La Ventana.

My First Marlin by Rachel Larratt

My First Marlin by Rachel LarrattAs all deep-sea fishing trips begin, we were up bright and early. It was almost 10 am as we reached the dock carrying loads of beer, margarita supplies and ample amounts of sandwich ingredients. The plan for the day was to head out from Marina Palmira in La Paz out to the area around Espirito Santo. We’d spend some of the day fishing and then a few hours snorkeling with the Sea Lions at the north end of the island.

Our boat for the day was the 38 foot Mediterranean “El Ganador” that we rented from Desea Adventures. It came crewed with our Capitan and our deck hand David. We settled in on the bow with our breakfast for the 45 minutes ride out to the open water.

Tackle Industries Musky Rods – First Impressions

They say you never get a second chance to make a first impression, and its true. My first impression of Tackle Industries 9 foot musky was definitely memorable. All of my current fishing rods were bought from stores where I was able to to have a good look at each rod and lift each one to see which one felt right. I took a chance ordering a Tackle Industries musky rod without ever seeing one or picking one up. I don’t even know anyone that owns own, but the rods looked solid. After exchanging a few emails with the owner, and receiving some of the best customer service I have ever had, I not only ordered a rod but several lures too. I waited very impatiently for the rod to arrive, and just a few long days later I finally had it!

Sufix 832 Superline – First Impressions

It’s been several years since I have spooled up any of my reels with line other then Power Pro. I was, for lack of a better word, content. I was content with just about every aspect of Power Pro. The problem with being content with anything in life is that you don’t really try anything new. You don’t know what you’re missing. At this this point you are probably wondering what I’m going on about, but its simple, we all need to try new things, especially in the world of fishing.

At first glance, Sufix 832 looks almost exactly the same as Power Pro. The both come in moss green, they are both low diameter, the both leave your thumb green after a day of fishing with a baitcaster. So what sets them apart? First I’d like to start by saying I’m no scientist, thats Jonathon’s department, so I’ll just do a quick copy and paste from the Sufix website.

Sufix 832 is made from a “Patent-pending construction of 8 fibers (7 Dyneema® plus 1 GORE® Performance Fiber) and 32 weaves per inch. GORE® Performance Fibers improve abrasion resistance, increase casting distance & accuracy and reduce line vibration. Dyneema® fibers provide high strength & sensitivity, hydrophobic water-repellent protection and small diameter.”

That all sounds pretty awesome, and there certainly wasn’t anything comparable written on the Power Pro site about their line. There are really only two parts I’m interested in, increased casting distance and strength. I’m not a finesse fisherman, in fact I’m the complete opposite most of the time. I must admit, I was feeling pretty skeptical as I walked down to the lake with a fresh spool of 832 on my Quantum Tour PT. Could this line really be better then Power Pro?
