  1. I know it's shaky head cam footage but if you like watching fish take poppers...

     
  2. What kind of fish are those?
     
  3. black rockfish
     
  4. I was using 25' of t14 to catch them this weekend. I feel like an idiot. I had huge poppers and a floater with me too. That video was rad.
     
  5. Also, if Quentin Tarrantino made fishing movies, that would be the soundtrack he would use. I think I'm gonna call in sick today and go steal a boat.

  6. i usually fish the 25' of t-14... but when you pull up and see a large area of rockfish boiling on the surface eating crab spawn (or juvenile jellyfish... i wasn't looking too closely) you're gonna pull out the popper.

    sometimes you can move rockfish you don't see to the big popper but usually it is better if you see the occasional boil on the surface. i lost a sage rod at this spot back in 1999 because i left a clouser hanging inches below the surface as i threw a rockfish in the cooler in the front of the boat.

    haven't seen it like this since 99'-00', but it's 40 minutes of this kind of fishing that will always make me check it out on my way to and from fishing elsewhere.

  7. Chris that looks really, really fun.
     
  8. Is it still considered fishing if you ain't got no hook?
     
  9. Chris, that's crazy action!! Boy, an underwater view of all those strikes would be amazing.

  10. What a great experience and video. Just to witness the abundant food chain out there would be worth the trip.
     
  11. Hell ya!! That is awesome! l
     
  12. Was that pretty close to shore? or out in a rip. Has to be one of the coolest videos Ive seen in a while
     
  13. I've seen that type of action a couple of times at Neah Bay, but that was before fly fishing entered my life. Great fun and thanks for posting video.

  14. I love that even after the hook was off he still could help but set the hook. But then he still felt the fish. Awesome, just awesome.
     
  15. That was great Chris! And what band played that track?!?
     
  16. Chris, what wt rod were you using?
     
  17. Instrumenal version of:


    Original


    8wt Echo3 with a floating Outbound Short
     
  18. Frigging sick, thanks Chris!
     
  19. Damn. That makes my brain go all gooey.
     
  20. The hookless footage is awesome. Some persistent little buggers. Looks like a rip is holding them in that nice little bucket for you.

    Do they get boat wise pretty quick and disperse or hang in there as long as the feed is around?
