Boiler 7-5

Postby hh65cdr » Sun Jul 05, 2009 2:13 pm

Pattled out to the Boiler early this am with a good buddy and finally got the trigger fish to eat the fly. Landed two on the fly and I think my buddy had 6 on spin. Had some fun bluefishing action as well. Thanks Boss for telling me where they were. Fun pullage on the 9wt. Thanks Whaler13 for the fly tip it worked. :D

Nice Tracy. So add gotcha's to the list of my flys to tie I guess.

Gotchas probably would do better. I was using a shrimpy looking fly Brian called a moe. I will post a pic of it later. I think the smaller the hook the better.

M.O.E. ? Like "Mother Of Epoxy" ? It's an old bonefish fly.

Tracy, those aren't just Triggers. They're nice ones !!

Let us know how they are as table fair.

Here is what I was using. I started out with a craft fur like gotcha brown in color and the bluefish trashed it. So I switched to this guy and was able to sight cast to the triggers only setting the hook after I saw them eat it. Jeff I think 4,6 and 8 are good sizes.

Yep, that's the M.O.E. and a good representative pic too.

Characterized by the flattened epoxy body that flows between
the outside edge of the eyes to the hook shank. About 10 yrs ago it was the "must have" bonefish fly, and it's still a good fly ... as proven by you.

You are on fire, man ... if I was a new species, I'd be looking
for a sunken ship hull to hide inside of. ;)

Thanks John. I have had the best week off. I keep hoping a dolphin or the spanish will cruise through when Im at the boiler. Im just getting comfortable at the beach launch when its flat like today. Hope there are more days to come like today. :D

The best part is eating those triggers. If you have a hispanic grocery, get some bannana leaves. Wrap the fillets in leaves with lime, olive oil, chilis, cilantro, tomato, a splash of Thai fish sauce, and garlic. Put it over hot coals for 15 min. It will steam to a wonderful goodness. The first time I had this was in Belize on my honeymoon, 16 years later, I still remember the smell......... :D
