Got this great report and picture from Guadalajara Mexico by Alfonso Medina Landreros who has one of our Breakaway Omega 10ft 6in rod. Looks like he was using a Roberts Lure which I have used in Texas to catch Reds and Jacks. Thanks Alfonso.
Hi Nick, Saludos Desde Guadalajara.
I want to share with you this jack I caught last weekend, using one of your Omega 10-6 and a Saltist 6500H. This is the biggest fish I have ever fought with my Omega. It was like 15 minutes of struggle because of the waves but enjoying the moment. At the end, the performance of the rod was awesome as always and we have jack stew for dinner that night.
I have sent a request for the recipe for the Jack Fish soup so we can try it.
Wanted to see what images I would get if I replaced the sinker with a GoPro came and cast its into the surf. Check this video out. GDX Casting GoPRO
Running line was 20lb with a 60lb shock leader approximately 30ft
The rig used was the Breakaway clip down rig
You will see in the film how well they work during the cast, improving aerodynamics and protecting the bait during the cast. These clip down rigs especially work we’ll at protect the bait at the beginning of the cast as the bait is in time with the speed of the sinker. (Eliminating snatch that leaves bait on beach.)
Enjoy Regards Nickaway
