Tying FG knot - explained

Okay, I decided to post a video that was made by my homeboy in Japan.  Chinese guys know how to tie FG Knots.  My friend is expert at knot tying and has extra ordinary Suzuki (japanses seabass) fishing skills.  His port of call is Tokyo bay, Japan.  If you are interested in catching 80cm specimen then I can forward you his info.

I think you can benefit from this very strong knot as this is the only knot I tie for my casting game (and deep drop jigging) PE to leader.


Mackeral Quest - Miss Belmar Princecess

During the last trip out of Point Pleasant, a mackeral was caught from the guy standing next to me.  Caught on the chewed up remains of crab from a failed tautog hookset the lil guy (about 11 inches) came aboard.
Looking back at some old photos I remembered that about 1 year ago at this time I went on my annual mackeral jigging trip out of Belmar, NJ

I believe it's allmost time to go again.  What dictates the early coming of the mac fish is cold water.  As soon as that is around then the schools are found.  I'm looking forward to a trip in January before cod starts.

Here is the catch from last season:
