interesting. i see why its so controversial now with 30-40 MILES of line out(thousand baited hooks). you didnt see any of the unwanted catches on film (dolphins) and you know they are scarfing up the bait.

I thought it was a terrible episode, it seemed to be too much drama and not enough fishing. Thumbs down for last night.

Honestly it was better than I expected. If nothing else, at least I learned one more technique for putting big fish in the boat! I thought the shows format was decent. It was more entertaining than the Lobster show I thought it would be similar to.

Was a little disappointing to see how they catch these magnificent creatures. Guess I had visions of actual fishing to get the Swords onboard. But then again this is a commercial operation and it's their job so I understand.

The bluefin was fun to watch. They fought the thing for 3 hours with a winch, thats impressive to me. Hopefully there is some more fishing the next couple of episodes though.

I am still on the ropes, way to much drama, not enough fishing. The fishing you did was pretty intresting.

I really liked it, although I like anything fishing. The only down side is how they play up every little piece of drama. They do it with all these Discovery Channel shows, Ice Road Truckers is the worst. I wish they would just run it as a documentary and not a reality show.

That's amazing how they run for 5 days to get to their fishing spots and put out 40 miles of line.

    • Good job!  I have never found any Blacks so they look a little different.  Can you take a picture of what they look like cut in half? They look a little scary like False Morel's 
    • I picked for about 2 hours this morning. I'm not exactly haw many I got but its enough for a couple meals. I'm going to chop some of these up and mix with some cream cheese, feta cheese and garlic chives and then stuff some chicken breasts and cook them on the grill. The little bit of rain that we got last week helped the shrooms pop but it really didn't do much else for the woods besides help the mosquito's hatch. There were so many they licked the bug spray off first then swarmed. I found the mushrooms all over, North, South, East and West facing hills. Normally spot 1 has the best results but this trip it was my second spot. All of them had pretty good size too. Only a few that were in direct sunlight were dried up otherwise they are very firm. Spot 1 is the left container. Don't worry, I use a mesh bag while I'm out in the woods!
    • Yup.... 6 & 4 for Lead.... 4 & 2 for steel
    • I ended up framing my house, putting on the T&G , and then spray foaming back against the interior, which may be why I am not seeing any movement... I also used pine vs cedar
    • I agree with the guy who agreed with the other guy.
    • Just wait till they come up with the remote submarine drone with 3d high resolution camera that can see through algae and milfoil and transmit to your eyewear in 3d.   I struggle with properly tying a berkley knot......
    • I agree with rundrave. #4 early and #2 shot later in year
    • Yes, 5/16 T&G I installed last fall. I did the same, but I see this summer it's starting to buckle  
    • Adding a 4th wouldn't do much IMO. The map screen is already too small to be useful when screen is split in 3. I added a Helix 7 G2N to use as a map screen. Networked with other 2 units
    • I could always go and spend more money on an additional unit but some of it is like Floyd said. I have a hard enough time watching one screen. I have the app on my phone. I think that lowrance has the ability to split the screen into 4. I just can't believe I'm the only person who would like to see this but maybe I am. It may not be as big a deal once I get more familiar with the unit. Right now I like to look at all the screens to help discern what it is im seeing on the screen.  I appreciate the input!
