    Here we see a slight tailing tendency, can you point out its cause? Some comments here: https://onemorelastcast.wordpress.com/2015/03/19/a-little-exercise/

    • Tailing Loop and Concave Path

      How concave must a rod tip path be to get a big tailing loop? Some ideas at https://onemorelastcast.wordpress.com/2015/02/22/mysterious-creature-rides-again-2/

          • It looks like a tail... but it isn't


            from Aitor Coteron Added 349 1 4

            Can we get a tailing loop from a totally rigid rod? The line configuration shown here looks strangely similar to a tail… but it is produced by line dangle: https://vimeo.com/26521870

            • Tail from hauling at the end of the stroke


              from Aitor Coteron Added 358 2 3

              Basic physics tells us, without any doubt, that hauling exerts a force on the rod tip: When hauling we accelerate the line, and the line's inertia resists to that acceleration applying a force to the rod tip. Obviously that force must have some effect on rod load, an effect that will be a balance between the force exerted by the line on the rod and the force from the rod resisting that force from the line. The most obvious effect we can get is with a static rod, as shown here: https://vimeo.com/17247438 Hauling at the end of the casting stroke is a different thing because then the rod opposes more resistance to bending. However even in this case we get some load due to hauling in the form of a delayed unloading. - Hauling starts at 00:13 - Maximum haul acceleration is at 00:22 - Each cross is drawn at intervals of 4 frames.

              • Sabalo Gigante: Chasing the Silver King


                from Estrada Art & Apparel Added 7,631 47 5

                Anyone that knows me, knows that I have been chasing tarpon since I was a child. The Tarpon has been my biggest nemesis. The hardest species for me to catch. I had yet to ever hold a tarpon in my life. I have been so close to catching tarpon too many times. Having them come off boat side, Jump out of my hand and land on the tippet and snap it off, 80lbr's wrap them self up in the leader on a jump, Come out the other side of a bridge and jump and pop me off on the bridge. This video was really about FINALLY catching a tarpon. Finally getting that photo holding up a tarpon. In the video, it shows Mario's first tarpon as well. Honestly, it's like we have failed time after time on getting the big fish. So we took an easier route or stepping stone if you will. Ultimately, we will get a big fish boat side. Granted, a large fish will not be brought out of the water. When I was just a child in the early 90s, I remember going to the Navy base in Key West with my parents to pick up a load of cuban refugees. For my grandfather was the creator of the housing facility called "La Casa Los Balseros" (The House of the Rafters). I remember standing on the seawall and pointing down to what appeared to be chrome water. I pointed it out to my parents and said "I want to catch one of those". They told me "No you don't, they're no good. You cannot eat them". This was in 1992. It took all these years to finally do it. About a year ago, I wanted to make a tarpon video titled "Sabalo Gigante" talking about just that. But I have failed to get the footage that I needed. So I figured I'd have a little fun with it and put this video out. I will ultimately get that video done. It's been on my list for quite sometime. If only I would stop molesting all the redfish in Flamingo, I'll refocus and put in the work back into capturing big tarpon. catching these little guys in the back country lagoons reignited that drive to chase tarpon.
