Default Catalina BUG Slam 2012

I made a run over to Catalina for 4 days with my friend Frank for some hoopnetting. Making Mackeral for bait was easy and fun. Catching up to 2-4 at a time with the lucky joe rigs. All you needed to do is cut up some chum and put the rigs in the water and it was all you wanted..Well for the next 3 nights we limited out and put our multi day permit to use. It took some work, but we were determined to get our share..We started every night at 630pm and finished around 2am in the morning..Yes we needed the Aleve after each night's marathon...LOL One morning I put together some Spicy cut lobster and eggs to reward us for our pains. Until next time.. Tim

Thanks for your replies, I hooped through the storm on Thursday night and I think it stirred things up pretty good. The bugs were on the crawl all night. Tide didnt seem to matter. I also talked a buddy who hooped locally and did well also. Hope this helps.. Im ready for a Lobster burrito right about now .. Tim

tsurikichi, oooh yes strong backs and endurance to pull a 10 net string. Good thing they make Energy drinks to kick up your intensity. LOL You should do some hoopn on the Rubber Ducky ? Its lots of fun and rewarding ! Take care Tim
