I would suggest not to use wire leader...

Wire leader is not needed. Use 12-15 feet of 80 lb mono as leader. Threshers usually break the leader with their tail anyway and 80 lb will withstand it and last in any proper hookup (corner of the...

Make your own stringer line

Consider instead of a game clip make your own stringer just like the ones you use for trout. Just use a longer metal stake of piece of solid metal dowel rod (12" or so long, 1/4" diameter... bought...

They've been there for some time

Last GWS attack in San Diego was a rental kayak 20 some years ago by Scripps Pier. (not an ocean swimmer). Scripps used to chum for sharks to come in to study before that one occurred.

I've used SPOT


The Spot Tracker works well, and is very effective, but it takes on average 10-20 minutes to guarantee a satellite hit.

Bring 2 radios (JIS7 submersible), not one. I suggest Standard...

Saw you out there

Nice Catch. You don't have to make excuses to any of us about keeping a threshere once a year. Sounds like the timing was right to keep one. I saw you land it and pose for a good 30 minutes with it,...

different perspective

2-speed reels are nice and very durable. I've been launching thru the surf since 2000, and carried Shimano's, Diawas, and AVETS in 1 and now 2 speed. No mechanical problems, and they perform...

In my opinion...

Jim Sammons is correct in that all kayaks can be flipped. You will find this especially true in the surf, but typically not elsewhere if you use proper technique.

I haven't looked at the Hobies in a couple of years, and it sounds like they have addressed the rod storage and turning radius problems some.
