  1. Yesterday did a bunch of breakwater fishing. Was going for pollock for extensive times so was basically dragging sabikis attached to a sinker along the bottom. Once or twice got caught up for a moment but just a brief moment I'd soon be out of and would just need to spend a little time taking the seaweed off the rig. But, when casting out bait using the mackerel I'd caught, a couple times the rig would get caught in the rocks and I'd lose it. I found this odd as I could repeatedly cast and drag something over this structure without any issues and yet here I was losing sinkers and hooks left and right. I'm wondering if it's because when it's immobile it just kinda gets wrapped up in the rocks or even lobsters are pulling it under rocks to eat. Considering just getting a bunch of big bobbers to keep everything suspended above the rocks to avoid this going forward. How do you guys avoid getting snagged up when fishing with mackerel chunks for bait?
  2. Hi All, For Christmas I received my first pair of waders. They are the kind where the rubber boots are attached to the pants/bib so not separate boots. Can someone please give some advice on when and how to use waders? I usually surf cast from sand and haven't really rock hopped much. Are they mainly for colder weather months to stay warm/dry? I also heard that there are some safety things to know too (waders filled with water === bad)
  3. Hi I hope that I am in the right place for my questions since this is my first time in the forum. I am going to go surf fishing for the first time to Chacahua, Oaxaca in Mexico, and I have seen fisherman fishing from the beach, and from a big rock structure and they fished some big fish like different species mackerel, snook, red snappers, and even mahi mahi, and tuna sometimes over 50lb, they always use lures over there. I bought the Penn fierce 8000 combo with the 10ft rod, I also bought 80lb Power Pro line. My questions are: Since I am fishing with braid for the first time which leader material, and strength is more recomended for fishing from a rock structure, and the beach?(the sea floor is just sand, no rocks) Should I use wire leader? Should I use a swivel to attach the leader to the main line or just a uni to uni knot? I am planning on using lures most of the time, so I really want to avoid loosing them because of a bad set up, or a toothy mackerel. Also I am having several issues with cinching the last loop on the double palomar with the 80lb Power Pro, the last loop wont cinch because the other knot is already too tight, because when I pull my line it just tightens the first knot, and not the loop itself. What can I do? or should I just avoid this and use the Double Uni knot. Thank you!
