i had very good luck fishing as we sailed---trolling with a lure got me 2 kingfish, both got away but were beautiful fishies....2 tuna i was able to land into the boat with sails still up....3 spanish mackerel we ate immediately--decent size......and some other fish which went immediately under boat and i could neither see nor land.......i consider that a gooood trolling record.......we were averaging kts under sail when i caught most of the fishies. was awesome. the tunas fought nicely--and i made the small tuna land just before the shark ate him...lol......trolling with shiney lures yeilds good catch.......have fun......

Lots of fish out there. Caught this Mahi off Cat Island in the Bahamas. I always use a cedar plug and about 60 lb. test line. Got this one on a rod although for years I used a Cuban yoyo and surgical tubing. I should have held it up before I filleted it but I didn't realize how big it was until I finished. Anyway it was a lot easier to hold it up with all the meat off. Had no room in the freezer for the carcass so the sharks got it. I usually make a chowder from the carcass.

We have sailed for 14,000 nms and have caught 4 fish.... thats one fish per 6,000 kilometers!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

All the fishing shops sell lures that cost about the same as a teenagers education and to get what?

Save your sanity and just download fish photos off the internet!

the cheeepo silver colored rattletrap is awesome---i caught 6 fish in 5 weeks....not bad average, actually--donot need live bait to troll behind the sailboat as ye cruise.....donot need to spend big bux on a fishie, either--the fishies donot know the difference between cheeepo and spensive lures----go to walmart and find a cheepo silver colored lure and fish while sailing---also buy some latex palmed garden gloves---cheep---for whenye catch th efishie so doesnt slip out of your hands.....wow---gooood luck...smooth sailing and goood fishing......~~~~~_/)~~~~~~

...with yappy terriers. Do you use downriggers, or just troll them at the surface?

Is a Terrier better for dog fish or cat fish?

Any PNW'ers have any advice on catching Salmon while underway? I'd rather stay away from the downriggers- just another piece of gear to clutter up the cockpit. Salmon season started here yesterday, tried half-heartedly today while sailing home using a diver, flasher, and cut bait lure. The diver seemed to work well, but there was no way to judge depth. Any advice?

Thinking of going on a salmon charter to see what they use, but that still doesn't get me past the downrigger issue.

Thanks, Frank

When you sit down to sashimi with wasabi the devil will leave you alone. Just remember your beverage...

Try listening to any fishing chatter on CB channels ? The bait changes with the tide; time of day; season and fish that you're aiming for. Depth too. Just don't believe all the chatter.

Cap'n 58, a kilo of wasabi ? really? You are a good fisherman!

I did the handline thing which worked as I passed thru thermoclines. Sometimes I have no idea what hit but I lost several lures on steel leaders. maybe I needed longer bungee cord as I had 250# test.

Thanks for all the information and suggestions. It all sounds doable. I can hardly believe it, but wifey is even getting into the idea of fishing. Thanks all.
