  1. I love the article. Please check the link for “Continue to read more” as i do not get the remainder of the article. The small print copy is hard to read for my old eyes. 🙂

    Great article about fighting big fish. I a recent trip to Lake Pyramid, I caught a few 12 lbs. Lahontan Cutthroat but I lost several fish because I don’t know how to fight big fish. I wish I would have read your article sooner. Bottom line, I won’t be losing fish of a life time after reading this blog. Thank You.

  3. What are some of the most important considerations for planning a successful deep sea fishing trip, including factors such as weather, equipment, and bait selection, as well as tips for staying safe and comfortable while on the water?
