Good job Prescott! My key to catching fish is letting the line get tangled around my feet and while I am distracted and trying to get untangled is usually when they bite. For a more proactive method, I will get Josh to comment.

YES! Nice work brotha! Nothing like some fresh sashimi from a fish you just caught.

Oh, and I don’t want to insult your fishing skills, but I figure it’s better for this to come from a friend; you’re holding the reel upside down. With level-wind reels you keep the reel on the top of the rod. Most of them are set up so you can adjust the drag while holding the rod, or add a bit of pressure with your thumb on the spool, and you cant’t do this if its facing away from you.

Nice fish!

Thanks Josh. I was holding like I’ve seen them do in the movies. On the next fish, I’ll try the Barstow method. I wish you could make it down here, my cleaning technique also needs a lot of work.
