Hopefully will get to fish for carnival so doing some tuning up, fathom has gone through some grouper and pretty big rays so i've had it preset rather high. It's been a winch and so I wanted to check the integrity of the pinion bearing. Holding out just fine but I decided to pull the race shields and pack it with grease while I was at it since you have to take down the shift mechanism to remove the main gears that blocks the bearing recess in the sideplate.

Do you change the order of your drag washers to increase drag?

You can do that with a star drag, lever drags have one large drag washer. Cal Sheets who modifies penn internationals does a drag upgrade on those by changing the belleville washer config in the spool. Usually looks like (()) instead of ()()

Penn star drags like your fathom have the versa drag arrangement with the eared washers where you can change the order to adjust how gradual the star ramps up pressure.

That's from jigging master's store, other than that, you'll have to look at a custom kolekar grip or something from the guys on alantani's forum. Most of them have Ebay stores.

Yeah, you'll have a good time with that reel. Will easily do 35lbs of drag, probably one of the only 2 star drags on the market that can boast of that feat and a bonus 4.3:1 ratio. And yeah you should use at least a 20ft topshot. I like a knocker rig or a lead head jig so It's easy to cut and retie several times without worrying about leaders.

I use it for banking, so a short topshot of about 15 ft of 80 lb mono then i use 60 lb fluoro below the swivel.

The 4.3 ratio is powerful, but it's a lot more cranking than my spinning gear. Can't complain though, the reel is light and compact.

We caught some salmon a few hundred feet outside of Grand Fond Bay by Copperhole in Monos. The current was strong, I was holding twice as much as the other fellas on the boat who were using casters and regular mono. We held some reds too, not much though. Had to move about plenty, Gasparee, First Bocas, etc.

Ryan, I saw silva hook in the first boca heading back in at about 11 am yesterday morning, Thursday.

Yeah, that's the real benefit of braid in strong current. You can actually fish on your spot and not 50 feet off it lol.

We were in Calypso Marine 23 heading from Gasparee to the 1st, more on Monos side.

I don't have that much experience, but I see plenty Mercury give trouble. Let a mechanic give it a good look over before you spend your $$$.

Engines like Mercury, Evinrude and Johnson need plenty maintenance.

If you looking for a 2 stroke workhorse best you stick to Yamaha.

If you looking for a 4 stroke workhorse you could look at Honda, they expensive but they work.

Hey fellas, just had a besss piece of curry fish. Was told that it was called Gail Backer in Guyana. It's a type of catfish I believe. Anyone knows of a local name for it? Any local names for Banga Mary as well?

never heard of local fishermen catching bangamary, dunno what type of sea conditions it lives in

guyanese certainly got some strange names for fish

bangamary is one of the best tasting fish for frying, better than flying fish imho
the skin also has a neutral taste and flesh is not stiff when fried

We would have more of it if the trawlers weren't wiping out entire schools of juveniles everyday. The species is very common in local bycatch. it's what they call rock salmon.

Thanks fellas!
What you all think bout dropping a fishpot around chaguaramas in the morning and collecting it back in the evening? Think I'll get anything worthwhile?

Plenty grunts and young snappers or somebody might steal it. Whatever you do, make sure there's a panel that can rust out in the event that you lose it. When traps are lost, they're called ghost pots and fish die in them, other fish go in to feed on them and they die...and the cycle goes on. Pots are the reason why most of Jamaica's reefs are now bone fields.
