Team Anglers Avenue After the bite NOW WHAT DO I DO?!
Team Anglers Avenue We pride ourselves on the percentage of fish we get in the boat and there are a number of reason why. – Before the bite preparations – During the bite – During the fight – At boat-side – In the boat
Team Anglers Avenue Before the Bite: – Boat organization important Specific locations of pliers, net, side cutters, tackle boxes, spare rods Boat setup – Rods in holders low Drags loose as possible Having personnel at the ready – Hands free and ready “Matts Reel Handles” Pay attention to rods “ebb and flow”
Team Anglers Avenue During the Bite: See the bite- Subtle bites? Boards and Riggers Move quickly to the rod and smoothly remove it from the holder Use the drag to your advantage Divers Tripping Divers, Boards, Riggers Allow fish to take immediate drag Boat Driver- Immediately look at electronics
Team Anglers Avenue During the Fight: Dont play “tug-of-war” Let the fish tire and then crank him in Check and adjust drag throughout fight Diameter of the spool Have another person on boat check if necessary Pay attention to other rods Vibration in the fighting rod often indicates tangle Watch for a board lagging out of position
Team Anglers Avenue During the Fight-Cont'd: Check to make sure net is clear Captain’s Job Move rods clear if necessary Hands Free! No Phones, drinks, baits
Team Anglers Avenue At Boat-Side: Leave net down until the fish is near Which way is the fish naturally coming? Leadering if necessary Communicate between fighter and netter Don't “go” if the fish isn't ready Upright vs. On side Use the wheel if necessary
Team Anglers Avenue In The Boat: Move netted fish away from rods Remove fish from net ASAP Rinse net and fold Remove hook without breaking Check leader Reset Clean blood/slime ASAP
