Here are the pictures of several of the more popular Fresh & Salt Water Reels put out by Garcia Mitchell. The 302 & 303 models are the "Right" & "Left" Handed Salt Water Reels. The hand holding the pole designates the hand usage. A "Righty" cranks the reel with the left hand, and conversely, the "Lefty" cranks the reel with the right hand. Think of Baseball. A "Righty" throws (casts) with his right hand, and catches (cranks) with his left. Garcia Mitchell designated even numbers for "Righties", and odd numbers for "Lefties."

Some Help Folks, Let's Fill in the Chart

On Friday 6/27/03 AnglerZack & AnglerBob  went in search of Porgies. We boarded the North Star out of City Island, Bronx, NY. The LI. Sound was calm, the Skies were blue, and Sun was Bright and Very Hot. The boat was packed shoulder to shoulder, not a pole holder left unfilled. The fees were $37.00 for adults, and a very steep $30 for children (including a large fish pool). This is the highest rate I have seen to date charged for children in any New York/New Jersey inshore waters. We left dock at 7:40 A.M. The boat was slow, and it took almost 3 hours to reach the targeted fishing grounds of Smithtown Bay on Long Island's North Shore. A couple of other Party Boats passed us by on the way out, and passed us again on the way in.  Without my binoculars, I could not see which boats those were. As for the fishing, we used a Garcia Mitchell Model 300, and a Ru-Mer 50 1/2 Bail to great success. The boat provided clam bate for free, and charged $5.00 for a dozen Sand Worms. Zack out fished me about 2 to 1, using the worms, while I stuck with the clams. We wound up with about 40 keeper Porgies after cutting loose a bunch of shorts. The mates charged $15 to $20 to scale & gut each bucket of fish, and tried for $25 to $30 for filleting. This is the highest I have ever seen mates charge for this service, given similar conditions. We did get a full day out of it, the boat docked at about 5:00 P.M. The crew did work hard with tangles and other situations that would have caused loss of fishing time. All in all, despite the expense, the day was a fishing success.
