  1. Good to hear. I’ll be on Santa Maria and Sao Miguel...thanks for your service
  2. Appreciate the feedback. I’ll report back after the trip but definitely good to know it doesn’t live up to the hype it receives online. After reading up on the place you think youre going to fish heaven but good to read this and lower the expectations so I’m not so disappointed. Catch or no catch I’m sure it’ll be cool to fish a place that looks like Azores
  3. I noticed the same thing. If I had to guess, once the bridge was deemed unsafe they were probably not allowed on it for anything and whatever was on it had to be left.
  4. Heading here this summer and starting to do some research...how did this trip turn out Zpicker? Or if anyone else has info on the area would be greatly appreciated
  5. Vantage point from the school I work at. Pretty wild to see in person....
  6. So unless you live out east you're not allowed to fish? I live west and north and I respect the spots I fish, I do my research to find structure and spots I think will hold fish and I'm friendly and respectful when there are locals in spots that I go to. People get so upset when they hear where I'm from and it always bothers me. Shouldn't matter where you live as long as you respect the sport and the fishery
  7. Looking for a single tube if anyone is looking to move one. Open to trades as well I have some SS darters that I'd part ways with. Thanks
  8. I've always had this same thought. Something I thought of but never end up doing was putting a dot of nailpolish or paint on the lead head and have a color coordinated weight chart that you could make and follow (red-1/2 oz orange- 3/4oz yellow- 1 oz etc.)
  9. Exactly why I went to making my own tubes. makes things very easy in the dark This site is awesome for tubes and caps but can get pricey if you are not buying a bulk order
  10. What do you guys use for caps?
  11. Thanks for the tip I'll give this a try
  12. I ordered end caps from a plastic distribution company but they ended up being too small so the tube goes around the cap rather than the cap going around the tube and they don't stay in place
  13. Did the same thing with a gear up eel pouch. Tubes I used were fluorescent light tubes that can be bought cheap at home depot. Only pain in the ass is finding a cap to fit them so the hooks don't get caught up underneath
  14. This is perfect. Could work on the side windows too. Thanks for the tip
