Light Tackle

The Purple Jet specializes in custom light tackle conventional, spinning and fly fishing. Do you like a challenge? Let Capt. Dave Riback and his professional crew guide you through landing big fish on light tackle. 
Want excitement? There is only a few yards of line left on your reel after a 30lb. bluefin tuna has inhaled your bucktail on your 10 pound line light tackle spinning outfit. Line melts off the reel at such an alarming rate the spool is getting hot. That's what I'm talking about! Time, skill, knowledge, along with a little luck are the only factors on your side. 
We start with striped bass and bluefish on light spinning gear in the spring and summer months. In September and October tangle with school bluefin tuna, bonito (bonita), little tunny (false albacore), skipjack tuna and a even mahi-mahi on our mudhole inshore tuna trips. November and December bring light tackle jigging for stripers.
