  1. Mitchman, if you wouldn't mind passing on the contact info for Captain Jesus, that would be great. Might try to get a day on the boat. When you were there did you hit Marieta island?? Wife wants to do a trip, not sure if we want to hit hidden beach or not. still doing research. Thanks, Tony
  2. Mitchman, I have searching the web for info as well, Headed to Punta Mita end of Feb. I have found some info in trip Advisor and Bloody Decks. Not sure if I can post links, but do search will get you some info. I'm gonna keep looking, I'll let you know if I find anything good.
  3. I saved the article way back when. I actually built the rod 15-20 years ago, ended up giving it away since it sat in the rack unused for the past 10 years. It was a fun rod to fish. The Montauk Eel Rod.pdf
  4. Same here! I agree, nice shop, good people.
  5. I've used PP and Suffix in the past. But that was about 15 years ago.
  6. Tight lines, Bill! Very generous of you!!
  7. I'm in, sweet lure!!
  8. I'm in!!!!
  9. I've taken 4-5 rods in a Plano Airliner. It's a little smaller than the bazuka. I swapped the pins out for bolts ans lock nuts.
  10. I tried the 20# SuperPower braid on a fluke set up. I didn't like it. I don't remember why, its been a few years. I took it off after one or 2 uses.
  11. Our last trip to the Osa was in 2017. We flew into Puerto Jimenez, rented a vehicle and drove to Drake Bay. It wasn't a terrible drive, slow, bumpy, lots of hills, but I was fine with it. I did overhear other people complaining about the drive, but I thought it was fine, definitely more challenging than what is considered normal in the states. If I remember correctly there were 4 river crossings. The first 3 weren't much, that last one was much more than I expected. The agent at the rental car told me how to take the crossing, but I wasn't 100% on the instructions so I pulled off to the side for a few minutes and looked it over. Fortunately a dirt bike came down the road. I watched him get about 1/3 of the way across, saw how high the water was on his tires and followed his trail/wake, LOL.
  12. I'm in!! Sweet plugs!!
  13. I support catch and release
  14. Dec 4 2006, remember the date because it was my birthday. I get a call from a friend and tells me to get to the beach, huge blitz. I'm at work, my boss pulls in I tell him about the call. He says isn't today your birthday? Good Luck. I run home grab my stuff which I had put away for the year. I get to the beach at 10 am I drive about half a mile and pull up to one end of the blitzing fish. Caught a few blues, the blitz went West. I stayed where I was until 5pm and had fish pretty much every cast. My friend who was fishing elsewhere, pulled up around 1pm and stayed until the end. All keepers a few over the 40" limit which back then was the bonus fish. Biggest was about 30-35#. I couldn't even guess how many fish I caught. All caught on Swim Shads, bucktails and Large Danny Plugs. Until that day I had never caught a fish on the swim shads (though I didn't fish them much) I used every one I had with me. I went back the next morning, had a few keeper sized fish, then BOOM it was over. It was like someone flipped a switch. Funny side note. On my way home I called my wife and she asked what I wanted to do for my birthday dinner. I said I'll grab some chinese food, big birthday dinner, LOL. I picked up the food drove back to the house, and I'm sitting in the driveway when my phone rings and my wife asks where I am. I said I'm in the driveway, I stiffened up and can't get out of the truck, give me a few minutes, LOL.
