Yellowfin in the Canyons and Trout Fishing with Kids
Season 03 » Show 4
The tuna bite in the canyons has been hot, and as soon as Andy Nabreski gets the call that a spot has opened up on a trip to a juicy temperature break offshore, he leaves the office and bolts down to the harbor. Captain Duane Gelzer motors the crew more than 100 miles offshore, working hard to find the bite. Once a temperature break is located in Gilbert Canyon, rods start knocking down left and right as speedy yellowfin tuna raid the crew.
In the second half of this show, On The Water’s Chris Megan and Neal Larsson take their kids trout fishing on a local pond. To get kids into the sport of fishing, it’s important to get them catching right away, and there’s no better way than using PowerBait on freshly stocked trout.
Show Location: Gilbert Canyon and Small Trout Pond
Boat: 35’ Cabo
Gear: Penn International 50 reels, 50-100# Class stand-up and bent butt rods
Hot Bait/Lure: Bird and Green Machine daisy chain
Rigging: PowerBait Floating Rig: Small egg sinker threaded onto a 4- to 6-pound-test main line stopped by a barrel swivel. A monofilament leader of 1 to 2 feet is attached to the swivel with a size 8 or 10 single hook or size 14 or 16 treble attached. Knead the PowerBait around the hook, cast into a pond or stream that receives healthy stockings of trout in season, and let the kids have a blast!
