Subject: Replace Damaged Eyelets While Fishing In Los Suenos
(Posted on Feb 26, 2014 at 07:00AM by Lee Byard)

A weakened cable is more than twice as likely to snap beneath the weight of Blue Marlins, Sailfish or big-bodied Groupers; and too many deep-sea battles have been prematurely ended by damaged filaments.

Avoiding this fate is - thankfully - easy. While fishing in Los Suenos be certain to maintain proper eyelets.

Eyelets guide fishing lines, allowing them to smoothly cast and return. When these items are nicked or rusted, however, they can wreak havoc on cables, systemically wearing them down until they snap.

Inspect eyelets before every sport fishing tour, therefore, to avoid this problem. Replace old items (or, if only minor repairs are needed, sand them down to smooth finishes) and watch out for signs of saltwater corrosion.

If anglers borrow rods from charter crews, they should still do a thorough check of overall eyelet conditions before sailing. Don’t hesitate to ask when these options were last replaced. Successful fishing, after all, requires reliable equipment.

Reduce worries of frayed lines. Swap damaged eyelets for pristine results.
