Queen Of Hearts, But Not Mine!

Went out 7/20/2014 with Calvin & Glen on the Queen of Hearts out of Pillar Point Harbor (Half Moon Bay).  The quick & dirty?  We limited out, but 50% of the fish could fit in your hand, and more like 75% of the fish were black & blue rock cod.  Get the title yet?  Ankeny Street and Tigerfish still rule this guys heart!

These fish were on the large size.  And only 4 lings caught that day for 20+ people.  The whole reason we wound up going was that I called the day before & asked what their scores were like Saturday.  Apparently they managed 36 lings for 24 people.  Amazing!  Unfortunately we didn’t have a repeat performance.

Calvin was using a generic dropper loop rig with 8-10oz weights.  Glen used a mix of those and the ones with plastic squids on them as well.  Also used whole fresh squid (they caught some recently and had it to share with the patrons.  Massive props for that!).  I was using a generic bala/ho d jig (4oz).

How to section!

Its been a long time comin’, but I’m finally getting it started!  We’ll now have a “How To” section.  I know I had to do a lot of scrounging around to learn a lot of the things I’ve picked up over the years.  Sometimes it was a lack of information, other times I found things weren’t a perfect fit for me and I had to mix and match.  You can reach it from the top of the page (“How To’s (Rigs, Set ups, Poke Poling & More!), and hovering over it will show all the sections once they’re live.

 

After years of trying to piece things together and make things work for me, I’ve garnered a great respect for people who selflessly take the time to share their experiences and strategies with everyone else.  Today, I’m finally following in their foot steps.  I won’t be able to flesh out every section I’ve outlined in the “How To” section, but I’ll be sure to finish at least one or two articles tonight.

See a section you’re interested but isn’t live yet?  Comment!  Email me!  I’m flexible on the order these come out at.  Don’t see something you want? Let me know about that too!  Maybe it never occurred to me, maybe I don’t know but could do some research!  Let me know what you want.  This blog was started with the intent to share my knowledge with other avid anglers :]
