    My tuna jigging sessions of Canyon Runner seminars at Atlatic City yesterday (Sat) is finally over and I am pretty exhausted after 5 jigging sessions. :)
    It was a great seminars. They had over 400 paid fishermen and it surprised me because I expected the number of attendance woudl be down because of economy, but they had more fishermen this year. :eek:

    I went offshore seabass fishing on Friday and went to Atlantic City directly after fishing.
    While seabass jigging on Friday, I prepared for the jigging sessions with one hand with a rod and one hand with summarized papers. :)
    I had one extra copy of the summeraized papers and I used it for two sessions, but someone took it appraently believing the papers were the summary of my jigging session which I distributed. So I had to use the dirty smelly summarized papers which I used while fishing.

    I wish I could have made visual presention of Charlie White underwater video. It clearly show how samon attack trolled bait/lure. It changes my whole concept of hook presentation.

    That is St Croix 4M76XHF blank. The blank is lighter than any other Japanese blanks but rated to 80 lbs. I hav a full lengh of custom jigging rod from the blank and I am thinking about making short Japanese style jiggind rod from the blank. I could weigh less than Hot Wei World rod, but stronger.

    Kil - What do you think about the blank for tossing poppers? Is it too stiff or would it be good for that application too?

    I think the blank is very good for popping. I haven't checked all lines of St. Croix blanks. It looks there are some candidates for popping blanks.

    that sucks that you had jigs missing. most hardcore fisherman(jiggin/poppin) are honest. i never worry about anyone who i ever fished with. most guys are willing to give stuff away or let you use whatever if you need something. but you never know i guess. glad the seminar was a success

    Yea, I read that and its still sorta fuzzy. I was wondering because it says which seminar you want to attend. Does that mean i can only attend one ?

    There are several seminars going on during the day. They repeat like 5 times. You pick the ones you want, attend, then go to another one. THey last about an hour each.
