    Lots of medium tuna , troll gear . a few ugly sticks 8 ft roller guide parabolic rod older abu reel 8.6 jig stick with a smaller newell 7 foot diawa spin stick , with older abu garcia reel a few newels 5.5 , 235 , some old accurate side plate frame kit reels

    Back at the bay after 20 yrs

    Last summer I thought about selling all my gear , mostly medium tuna troll and jig sticks . It didn't happen , bought a fishing license and found an old 8' Diawa graphite rod in the garage with an abu reel .
    20 year old swim baits in a plastic box . I fished the mission bay jetty / surf , getting my casting timing back , enjoying being by the sea . Caught a few short SB and watched the sunrise .
    Really a great day as the catching is only part of it .

    I may try my old shrimp slurper or scent on the swim baits . A great day away from the TV and internet .

    Now your Talkng!

    Cool thing is all that "old gear" still works great. Only so many ways you can build the wheel!

    Glad to have you and thanks for the update Heli-Tech.
