    This is good news :)
    These rods, much like guns in a safe, can reproduce more readily when out of the boss’s direct line of sight

    I purchased (3/18/2022) a Tsunami rod from @J&H Tackle online. It snapped during the tournament. They will not replace the rod, it was the 4th time using it.
    I’m done patronizing J&H Tackle.

    No, it’s a $50 rod. They do nothing because it’s not manufactured by them, so they’re reasoning. A little customer service would be nice, that’s all. You sell it, you back it. I guess that’s too simple.
    Non the less, I’m done with @J&HTackle …
    moving on.

    We were fluke fishing in 100’ of water. I was rapid jigging a 4oz Bucktail with teaser, felt the bite set the hook and snap.
    I think I hooked the wreck with the Bucktail and hooked the fish on the teaser, I felt the head shake of the fluke… then snap.

    Just added toolbox and roof-rack to haul my fishing boat 100's of miles into the backwoods every week. Goodrich K02s, Bilstein 5100 front and back, no lift.
    Should have been on this thread sooner.

    Have fished about 130 lakes in BC. Started fishing at age 4 with my family. We would fish lakes all over BC, about 15 trips every year. Trolling lakes, ice fishing, and also trolling for salmon outside Vancouver harbor.

    Started working on commercial salmon trollers at age 13, and did that for 16 years. So the west side of Vancouver island, and the Queen Charlotte islands (Haida Gwaii). Also longlined for halibut, plus herring fishing.

    We would be at sea for 15 - 20 day stretches, working 18 hours per day, and do that from May to October. Come in to some small village, sell our catch, clean the boat (40 footers), buy groceries, have our first shower in 15 days, do laundry, get shitfaced drunk if there was a hotel, and back out at 4am the next day for another trip.

    Retired now, but I get out for 20-30 solo remote fishing trips every spring and summer. Trolling flies out of my 10 foot Lund. Rowing, I don’t use any motor.

    Fishing the Thompson Okanagan, and Chilcotin regions. I have a dozen pretty secretive lakes that are hard to reach. I don’t fish at any lakes that are frequented by other fishermen.

    Couple of pics. Two favorite lakes. Both last summer. Waiting until May for ice-off as my lakes are high elevation.

    Catch and release only. I killed so many salmon as a commercial fisherman and most interested now in seeing the stocks in the small lakes survive.

    I just drove 2.5 hours to Edison, NJ for a fishing expo. I drove through the lot and went home. That was like one of those trains in India with all the people hanging off the sides.
    No Thanks!!!

    Fishing the Shenandoah River by Elkton VA. Caught over 20 bass and 2 trout just from the bank. Most 8-12 inches, but this one 3 lb (yes I weighed it) small mouth hit like a truck in the fast moving water!

    Someone pinged me and asked about why my handle is Tarpon Slayer. About 5 years ago I was in Grand Cayman, and a local fishing legend took me to a busy parking lot next to the aquarium. Due to construction they had to flush the tanks, and the smell attracted fish like nobody’s biz. Once in a lifetime kind of thing.

    The first pic is you can see how clear the water is, and you can see the bottom, with a few 50-100 lb tarpon. The next pic looks black. Because the tarpon are stacked so deep you can’t see the bottom. Hammerheads were waiting about 30 yards away just past the coral, so as soon as a hooked tarpon bolted and jumped in open water – bam! Mr. HHead said hello.

    A good day.
