I’ve had my six raptor on a psw-760h, and this setup has been good to me,
Was looking at a Henry big boy, but that marlin is tempting. Wouldn’t happen to need any fishing gear would you?
I have not fought any “larger” fish on these, but I have a set of Cortez 5 reels that I use as loaners or bring for 3/4 day trips. I can say that...
Just picked up an order from Gerry earlier today. Super cool and easy to work with! Thanks again boss!
Great deal as always Greg!
I’ve got two items for sale. Both are clean but have misc scratches on them on them. I’m located in Menifee (Inland Empire). I will ship the reel...
Killer deal Greg!
I asked about the rods, and he was asking $400 for the 7004xh, and $300 for the 700xh. He was willing to do $650 for both. He also stated both...
If I recall correctly, last year Marcel had someone in SD that I sent some misc tackle to.
I ended up getting the 12IIA instead just to get more capacity. I ended up emailing Okuma about the line capacity for both, and they only had...
Cool. Thanks for the info!
I would assume that the 12ii is the 2 speed.
Robert doesn’t give good advice! He just likes to run his mouth. Lol. I’ll have to call you soon to catch up buddy!
Just curious if anyone was able to get a definitive answer to this thread. I was not able to send a PM to OP, and everyone else was referring to...
They’re gone, I sent him a PM a week or two ago about them.
I clearly can’t read. Lol
Just wanted to praise how clean that mxj is for being fished for 12 years.
I know Phenix gets a bad reputation sometimes, but one of the owners (I assume, because he’s usually at every event where Phenix is) did the...
Always coming through! Good man!
I have mine on a phenix black diamond psw-760h.
This was the exact same setup I had with this rod/reel setup.
If I didn’t go through my recent situation I would add it to my collection of red avet reels for sure at this price!
I have a mint regular torium 14 if that tickles your fancy. Loaded with fresh 50# izor I believe.
Rob is too anal and needs everything to match
I ended up buying 1k rounds of 4-5 different calibers on top of what I had stocked already before last year ended just to avoid all of the hoops...
The braid just got picked up this morning. Send me a pm and I'm sure I could dig some stuff to send you.
I sent both of you PMs.
No I'm not really out there very often.
Good to know. Supposedly one of the customers there said "it worked" but I didn't buy them because I didn't think the pour was good. One said...
If you're in a bind, my local turners had some lead master 250g ones. I believe they were $14-15 bucks.
I have a few spools of braid that I have left over from filling different reels. None of these have been fished. These are what I have:
I've got some free Transderm scop patches that I'd like to give away for anyone who needs them. They do "expire" at the end of the month, so...
I have two tickets to the Lakers Clippers game (Lakers home game) on Christmas day. I purchased these at the beginning of the year for $570...
Up for anyone that wants it! Just don't want this to go to waste.
Anyone local to me want a free half day fishing trip at 22nd street landing in Long Beach on the Monte Carlo? It expires on Saturday, Oct 1st...
Great report! I've had the pleasure of fishing on the maximus and Erika before. She is a beast!
The rod's peachy clean and new with the plastic. How about we trade the rod for one of the talica 12 reels you have? Fair trade? :-)
The Trinidad 16A is sold, thanks James.
As of now, everything in the post is still available. I apologize for the late responses to everyone. My phone wasn't receiving any texts...
Everyone who has contacted me has received a response so far.
Bump. Nothing set in stone yet, but thanks for the offers so far.
Why would I buy one when I could just use yours Mike?! Trinidad now available. I'd also prefer not to get any trade offers unless it's something I...
I've got a few great items that I'm not really using, so figured I would post them up. Local pickup available in Menifee, Perris or Moreno Valley...
I'll get one for you. Just pay for our trip in September!
That picture is photoshopped, because I remember my fish being bigger :p
Great rods. These always come with me on trips.
Whattt... you just sold your others!
I haven't received any. I sent them an email mid last week, and I haven't even received a response from them. I ordered on the first day this was...
Great looking wrap Timmy!
I tried inquiring about this reel early yesterday, but to no avail.
Great report. Thanks for sharing!
Great deal. Thanks for posting, just ordered 5. I found it a little bit difficult to see larger pictures on there (just because I'm picky and...
I like the selections you ended up with. Maybe because I'm also a phenix whore, but those rods have done well for me in the past. If not, the 800L...
Agreed, although Robert is a big newbie :D. You really don't need the MXL, and I'm sure more people will state that the MXJ is more comfortable to...
vinhtran all signed up!
Kevin is a stand up guy. I bought some on two different occasions last year, and got them in no time.
Great seller that always has mint gear. You won't be disappointed!
I like your rod condoms though.
Great work! I'll definitely have to grab a few in the near future.
At least that fish ended up to be a jackpot fish! Lol
I've got mine on a phd-700xh (30-80) that I bought from the jerk Robert up there! :)
The rod has a reel seat. I used to own it.
Rod sold. Thanks Jeff!
Whoever buys this rod won't be disappointed. This is definitely my go to rod in my arsenal.
Local Pickup available in Menifee, or Moreno Valley on some days. No shipping because I don't want to deal with having to pack up a rod. Call or...
I've belly hooked around a 25lber before on a flat fall on the way up, and I'm not going to lie, it was definitely a weird fight. I would say that...
Chad gee or Cy Boden on here do a great job here too.
The side plate is just like most Avets that you see now. The only "rare" thing about it is that most left handed Avets came in silver, & anything...
Thanks for the clarification. I didn't go on the website to check really. I just saw an email and put it up. In the past, I know the restrictions...
I know many may not find this deal as attractive as a deal like the former 20% off jigging world had since most of us are from California, so you...
Bummer that I personally don't like deckhand rods. I'd be all over that xhj! Great deals though!
I've used my okuma Cortez reels several times and have done just fine with them. Yes, they're not built as well as some of the other reels you can...
I've got 3 spools of the 50, 65 & 80# power pro slick marine blue because I like it so much. It's much smoother, and it's always super easy to see.
Good deal on a great rod!
Just picked up my rod yesterday and all I have to say is don't hesitate to buy from Jerome! His gear was even cleaner than I expected. It was nice...
The last time I ordered, my Trinidad 16a still came out to free shipping when they had the grand opening sale (which I'm sure others can confirm...
I couldn't pickup today, but Jerome was very accommodating. Thanks again! Can't wait to pick it up and kill some fish on it.
The reel is sold.
I'm not interested in any trades at the moment.
I've got a Shimano Trinidad 16NA for sale. It's in great condition and hasn't been fished much. I am the second owner, and have not caught any...
Great looking plug. I'll definitely have to purchase some from you soon!
Seriously! This guy has a "problem" for sure! :-)
Does the 800m have a reel seat, or is it a deckhand rod?
Great guy & keeps care of his gear. I bought his other one & it was pristine!
It was weird, because I didn't get charged $10 for shipping on the 16a I ordered. When I went back to see what a 14a would run me, it showed a $10...
Just sent you a pm boss.
You could also contact Cy Boden. He's in North County too I believe.
It is because not every retailer had access to sell these for a while, & it's much easier to find your typical black/silver/etc. I had to buy all...
The claims process, even if there was insurance is a nightmare to go through. I forgot what I ordered in the past, but even though the seller...
Darn.. I wish I knew about this sooner Rob! Don't get seasick this time on the eclipse!
I second the psw-808m because it's a great casting setup, sensitive enough to feel the lighter bites, but provides enough backbone to pull on some...
An avet rep told me that the exclusive contract for the red ones ended with charkbait about a year or two ago.
Phenix Abyss PSX-807 8'0" 12 - 30#

Fuji Reel Seat / Custom Cork Tape
Bad ass rod Tim! Great guy to deal with!
I hope your father has a speedy recovery man. I've got a new clamp with hardware that came from my previous TLD20AII that's laying around....
Sweet job as always Jim!
HX Raptor with the PHD-7003XH
I fished the pink/blue 100g on an sxj 6/4 mc & phenix abyss 808m. I know when the bite is hot, it's hot, but on the last trip I took with it, I...
In my opinion, I'd rather fish something like a 6x jr instead for the flat fall for yellowtail. The purple/black flat fall worked really well for...
Nice job. I always enjoy reading your reports!
It's really hard to see those rods pop up because everyone that's got one loves it. Free bump.
Very nice fish!
I agree with getting a roller bag because the tackle just gets heavier and heavier. This is a pretty good bag to consider...
Jesse takes great care of his reels! I've purchased two from him in the past, and he's great to work with.
Always a great report!
I'm tempted to add this to my set of red Avets..
I'd say the 10cs is probably around the size of a torium 16 or so.
If you're on the eclipse, try and book an outer bunk. You'll be so much happier since they're wider. Just call Sharla when you book and request...
Sold. Thanks Rick.
Bump. Will probably be in San Gabriel someone tomorrow (Christmas day) for anyone out there interested.
I have a Large sized Open Water Roller Tackle Bag, large size with 3700 sized cases (still the original open water ones) and 4 rocket launcher rod...
Reel has been sold. Thanks Michael!
Local pickup available in Menifee or Lake Elsinore. I will ship on your dime. Paypal is accepted, you pay the fees, or use the gift option. Call...
No worries boss. Make sure to kill some fish with it for me!
Bring me back lots of fillets!
Great report. Nice to see them still biting this well into the season!
I think that it all boils down to what you'd like the spend at the end of the day. The penn fathoms are definitely a nice bang for your buck reel,...
The phenix psw-760h is an awesome rod. It was my go to rod last season until I added a phd this season.
I used to fish with the green, but it's difficult to see at night. Now, I fish with the marine blue super slick because it just feels smoother,...
The 760h is my go to stick! I usually fish my phd version first, with the psw being my backup. Awesome rods for sure.
I'm sure this will be gone fast! Great deal.
Killer trip. Thanks for sharing!
The New Lo-An has one going out on Friday as well. I've never fished it, but there are a lot of people on here that swear by it.
Last year the Eclipse had a package of 3 1.5 day trips. I forget the cost, but I'm sure you could call Sharla and find out. I've always had a...
The phenix should have a silver alps reel seat if I'm correct.
Fantastic to see!
Nice rod. I just picked one up before my last trip and paired it with an Avet SXJ 6/4mc. Loved the setup, and used it more than my mxj raptor and...
I'm sure this post is over 5 years old by now.
I assume you bought one of the packages. Just keep in mind that the trips aren't all inclusive if you use these, as meals/permits/fuel are not...
It's nice to see all of the offers out there for this guy.
Great looking wraps!
The first time I rode on this boat, I too fell hard down the narrow stairs, with my behind breaking my fall and sliding down each and every step....
There's also the dreamer and options in Long Beach out of Pier Point landing as well.
Great report, and awesome to only have 15 on it! The condor counts always make me want to book it, but when I can go, it's near the 37 that they...
I hate you Paul.. always getting most of these deals before I get a chance to! Lol
Forgot to mention that I got mine in about 2 days after purchasing. Great seller!
Still looking for one of these if anyone has it. I have a medium one already, but want the larger one.
It doesn't look like an MC from the pictures.
Sounds like a great experience!
My purple/black 130g is the one that I've been using. I bought this last year at melton's per recommendation from one of the employees, and it...
Price drop on the rod to get it moved.
Sold. Thanks John.
Talica sold. Phenix still available for now. I'll be in the Orange/Garden Grove/Huntington area for the next few hours for anyone who wants to...

I have a pair of P-Line Adaro 7.5" aluminum red pliers with the sheath & coil lanyard. Local pickup is available in Lake Elsinore, Menifee or...
Still looking for one of these.
It's the older style original handle, and it's a 5.0:1 instead of the newer 5.3:1 gear ratio.
Hey Mike, thanks for sharing. I saw that, and that's the medium version. Walmart has got it for about $95 with free ship to store as well. The...
I was curious if anyone had a large size Open Water or Nomad roller tackle bag available. If it's a medium and at a price I can't refuse, I may...
I would be livid.. I don't see how I'd just take back the reel like that.
Did you order online, or did you call into the store? I made an order 4-5 days ago on ones that said were in stock online, but got an email today...
I'm well aware of that. That's why I clearly stated in my initial post that I'd add cash.
Local pickup available in Menifee/Lake Elsinore. Call or text 951 591 2243 for questions, or if you'd like to come pick it up. I'm not interested...
I'd have to agree with most people that recommended 65# with a short fluoro leader.
Stradic sold. Thanks for playing!
I personally would have gone with a terez TZS78H, but if others have any suggestions, please feel free to chime in. I'll let you know if it...
Makaira sold. Thanks Tim!
Stradic still pending for a possible sale tomorrow.
Both reels are pending. I will update later if they are still available.
Local pickup available in Menifee/Lake Elsinore depending on time of day. I sometimes drive to oc/la but didn't have any trips planned, it's...
Locally, I didn't see many shops have any from LA down to San Diego before I went on my trips. I'd buy online and have em shipped.
Buy an avet sx with a cal star gfgr 800M. This setup was killing it on my last trip. Torium 14 or 16 is always nice, and I'm a fan of the Okuma...
Came back from a trip on Friday, and most people shifted to 20-25# outfits for the live bait that we had. I still got bit on 30#, but not as much...
Home depot has a 3 pack lot which is pretty cheap. I got mine on sale a few months back for $10-15
Pretty awesome catches!
You would've cast a mile with it! No.. not yet.. I'm still hoarding..
Should've bought that phenix I had! Lol.
Bump for a great guy that takes care of his gear! That green raptor is still killing a ton of fish.
Great story and interesting read.
If I recall, Tommy sold this a while back.
Terez sold. Thanks Barry!
Mike's sending me extra filets once he gets back from his 10 day! Lol
What are the discount Mondays at fisherman's landing? I used to go to Dana Wharf for half price Tuesdays on 1/2 & 3/4 trips, but they've been...
I'm sure that tons of people will tell you stories about how they've got larger fish on an sx/mxj/mxl which all share the same drag ratings....
Phenix rod sold. Thanks Rob! Lots of interest on the terez, but nothing solid yet.
The MXJ feels more comfortable in my hands for casting all day.
I think that everyone is right on the money with the suggestions of the MXJ or MXL. Being that you used to have a talica, you were willing to pay...
Phenix rod pending. I'm currently in Fullerton, & will be here until around 7 or so for those who are interested.
Local pickup in Lake Elsinore/Menifee. I'll be in the Fullerton area on Thursday, July 10th for those in Orange County that are interested. Call...
This box sold already. He let me know the day it was sold. Great deal!
Bump for Rob! Funny thing is this was my exact setup when I first started fishing years ago!
I'll be on tonight's trip with my lady as well. Looking forward to meeting you all and hoping for a great trip!
For anyone who happens to be interested in the phenix rod, I will be leaving on a trip tomorrow night out of Seaforth, and will probably make my...
I'll be on the trip on Friday as well. Outer bunks are the money spots on the eclipse. The center ones are normal narrow with the border in...

Good deals here
All messages have been replied to.
Sorry for not clarifying, but the PSW-868H is a custom, not a factory wrap. I updated my listing.
PHD-660XH sold. Lots of interest on the other rod but nothing solid yet.
Thanks Rob, I hoping so.
Red isn't exclusive to just Charkbait anymore according to the Avet rep that I spoke to.
I'm still curious as to why you bought a rod recently, and went back to phenix. What was the problem to begin with? You say that everything looks...
I always ship USPS because of the cost compared to Fedex or UPS, but I always ship with signature confirmation. I think it costs an extra $2.30...
I'm assuming he was referring to bass pro shops in Rancho Cucamonga.
He's got the 10ii
Really good deal. Should go fast.
Pictures of the reel have been uploaded.
Rod pending. Reel still up for grabs.
I'll be going to Fred Hall on Thursday probably. Unless it's local, I probably don't plan on doing any driving to meet up for the rod for all...
I do make my way out to oc every so often. Not sure when the next time I'll be out there though.
I like this rod too. So much that I bought two,...
Items available for pickup in Menifee/Lake Elsinore. I'm willing to ship the reel, not the rod. Paypal gift or at 3.5% if this option is used....

The 3xh wasn't enough Mike?!
It's a nice 50# rig.
Phenix sold. Thanks Mike!
I've got one. Located in the Inland Empire. Give me a call or text 951 591 2243
Bump. Will be in Orange County today until around 8pm for anyone interested.
Nice ride, awesome crew & great food.

Great fishing & report!
Terrific video! Thanks for sharing.
Beautiful build. I really like it.
Very nice detail!
Great pictures. Looks like it was definitely a successful season.
Simple and clean. Love the work.
Accurate BX2-600N sold.
Phenix PSW-760M sold.
I have one curado still available.
Very lucky! I definitely wouldn't mind adding one of those bad boys into my arsenal! I just bought a bunch of shirts & fluorocarbon. I ended up...
Currently in San Diego & brought the gear with me in case anyone is interested.
Great info on here.
Love the wrap!

I saw someone catch a 25# tuna with one of these earlier this year on a trip. I was pretty surprised about how it handled.
Awesome fish & good eats!
Very cool photo!

Kill 'em on your trip!
Nice report. Love the weather too!
Nice to hear you were still able to get some type of productive fishing after a start like that.
Since I watched that one documentary, I'm convinced mermaids exist.
Nice trip for a 2.5-3 day for sure in my opinion.
I always like the tiger wraps
Great wraps as usual.
Simple, and incredibly clean!
Great wrap. I love all the pictures too.
Beautiful wrap! I like it.
Glad to hear about some success with the new Shimano Butterfly flat-fall jigs! I bought some of these before my last trip but didn't end up using...
Good eats regardless!

Thanks a bunch Tommy. Great seller, and his items are in excellent condition.
Great write up and photos. Thanks for sharing.
Having a price range would definitely help narrow down some options.
Nice simple build. I like it.
Very nice wrap.
Love the detail.
Great work as always. Monday night's game definitely hurt for sure.
Thanks for the info.
Definitely interesting! Great job.
It'll work, but if you read the reports that some of the captains are posting, some will say that the gear was too light. That's just a risk...
Looks like a blast!
Great trip information. The photos are priceless!
Thanks for the detailed description of your experience!

Beautiful work as always.
That is crazy!
Simple, but I love the color combos.
Crazy detail, but I like it.
That's awesome. Beautiful wrap indeed.
Very nice catches!
Wait a minute... I've almost got him!
Very nice! I wish we had the same luck on the shogun during the same days.
Jesse is a stand up guy!
Looks like a very successful trip!
Thanks for the info. I'll be on the shogun on Tuesday and wanted to get an idea of what was working for everyone else.
Love the work on this rod.
Incredible detail as always!
Nice to hear the quality of fish being caught on overnights.
Great rods that at first, don't feel like they have a lot of backbone because of how light they are. There's really flexible and will work for...
Thanks for the PM's everyone. Still waiting on replies from some, so feel free to let me know what else you have.

Wal-Mart's website has a few cheap ones on there too.
Didn't think that this reel would produce with those larger fish, but it's great to hear. I usually use mine for a #25-30 setup, also filled with...
Don't worry, we've got it handled.
Considering any potential trades?
It's not listed as waxwing in the model, so I'm sure it's the foam handle.
I believe when I was playing with this reel at the Fred Hall Show, Shimano had a tent by the lake outside where you could cast this reel, and it...
I agree with everyone else, and the MXJ feels more comfortable. If it's just for pretty local stuff, why don't you consider maybe an SX instead? I...
Best deal I've seen on here so far.
Great deals as always!
Bump. Price drop on the Curado.

All PM's have been replied to. Rods may be pending.
I've replied to all the PM's. Everything is still available so far.
If you're looking to spend a bit more & want something slightly bigger, I have a new Abu Garcia Revo NaCl 60HS available.
I've got one. $25. Located in the inland empire.
This reel was sold a while back. I asked about it when I purchased something else from him.
Awesome catch. Looks massive!
Not sure if it's completely the same, or how it would fit, but I have a power handle from an Abu Garcia Revo Toro Winch 60. Let me know if you're...
I have a 12 if you're interested. PM me if you consider it.
I'm pretty sure the gear radio is 4.6:1, and the max drag is 22lbs.
Great deals. Free bump

I've got one in silver. Pm me if you didn't find one yet.
Sweet set of rods
Very nice wrap
Great work as always! Love it.
I'm sure it'll kill it!
Definitely a great deal!
The sales rep at bass pro shops said that the tranx "supposedly" had similar guts to the newer trinidad A reels, but was in a bait caster form. Is...
I love the dragon scales!
Great design and detail!
These are sweet!
Nice clean work.
I went out of Dana Point Tuesday night, where they were running 3 boats at full capacity. Boat was packed, but had no problems catching squid at...
Love the rod! It would look great with my green Avet on it..
I suppose that depends on where you live. I know I've seen some in Fullerton/Anaheim that does it.
That was definitely a great video!
How's the quality on these compared to say... harbor freight?
If you're just looking for an inexpensive two speed reel for local use, I'd probably go with a shimano tyrnos 8II or 10II, or maybe an sx 6/4.
Very nice! Thanks for sharing.
Considering any trades?
Great fishing and looks like you had a blast. Thank you so much for sharing!
Just curious how xtratuf boots fit. I normally wear 9.5-10 in regular shoes, but my current fishing boots are size 9.
I love the design! That'd be nice for my green avet..
Haha he got so lucky on that one.
Sweet clean up job.
Very nice of you and great work as always.
Dramamine is my brand of choice if you don't know whether or not he has sea legs yet.
Ty takes care of his stuff and has great deals! Thanks for my avet sx again!
Pm'd if it's still available.
Wow. Looks amazing! Great catches, and thanks for sharing.
I'd have to agree, pretty noisy reels, but great reel for the price. I've got a 10 as a backup that's great!
No photoshop necessary! :rofl:
Kaori in Fullerton is my favorite by far. It's off of Harbor and Chapman.
If you're going for cheap, but still decent, I go to Kaisen Kaiten in...
I'd prefer some lobster over turkey any day.
Also wouldn't believe it's your first attempt at this. Great job.
Thanks for sharing from the beginning to the end! Looks great!
Killed those rockfish!
Great it worked out for you. USPS is horrible. I remember having to submit a claim over something that was damaged over shipping, and after about...
Looks like fun. Great rockfishing there! Thanks for sharing.
Pretty cool design
Nice report. Congrats.
Wow. this 19 will certainly be a fish killer!
This thing truly looks amazing so far.
Excellent idea. Hope to see the end result soon.
Nice! Goods eats are to come!
That gold looks amazing on the rod.
Looks like everyone had a blast. Thanks so much for sharing the pictures with us.
Really nice prices
Very nice! :rofl:
Awesome to hear more stories about the great service!
No worries. Here's information directly from their website. I did a bit of researching when I found the same thing with my reels and thought there...
Really nice deal.
Ladies love the penetrator.
Thanks for sharing! That was one nice grouper. Good to know that some quality fish are still biting.
I hope that heals up soon because it looks like it must have hurt.
That one is a beauty!
This is pretty common. If you weren't getting any free spool at all, then there's a problem. I think my SX MC still free spools for 10-15 seconds...
I found it odd too, because I usually pick a reel, then a rod around that. I've used MXLs on the ones I've used.
Pretty sweet looking lure. I'm sure it kills it in the water.
"He said it's illegal to possess lobsters near a marine reserve"
I'm a sucker for carbon fiber.
Definitely post some reports after you try those out.
Those pictures are crazy! The coat hanger was definitely thinking out of the box, and the next picture is just amazing.
I don't mind eating sand...
Those pictures are crazy! The coat hanger was definitely thinking out of the box, and the next picture is just amazing.
I don't mind eating...
Are these promar?
I really like the scales one!
I wish I saw this sooner.
Really great job to see three legals in one day, and on a kayak.
I don't really use my ugly stick anymore, but my sx6/4 and sx5.3 fit on my ugly stick BWC2201 though. It's not the "lite' version though.
That thing looks great. I'm sure you'll be able to kill tons of fish on it.
All good info for those that don't know.
Can't wait to see the completed product.
Realistically, you probably don't need anything over a 30# outfit this time of year because you're probably only going to be bottom/rock fishing....
Nice ling & sheep
Definitely would have been awesome to know specifics, but regardless, awesome day.
Really clean build. I like the detail.
Canned sardines with tomato sauce and onions on bread is amazing to me.
Please correct me if I'm wrong, but the first one is the regular terez, and the second one is the waxwing version with the cork handle?
It all depends on what you're fishing for, and the line capacity of your reel. Of course, you'll be able to fit more 50# on there when compared...
This thread is 2 years old...
As simple as it is, just make sure you read the terms and conditions. I've seen too many times where the promotional package is amazing for the...
Free rod for going? :rofl:
Looks really fun. Makes me want to take a trip!
Someone got a killer deal
Reds, whites, then yellows for me.
Would be some nice free lobster bait!
Those are pretty nice. The clamps on the new mx are tiny.
Amazing transition so far. Can't wait to see the finished product.
Sweet looking work, it really is coming along amazing!
Nice progress. Can't wait to see it finished!
Killer price drop and prices. If you weren't so far I'd be all over that EJ & shimano terez now.
Really cool pictures. Thanks for sharing.
Awesome fish! Really nice to something different like that
Hilarious.. someone really dislikes the chargers
Nice catch in about an hour & a half
Very nice! Looked like you had a blast.
My neck hurts from the latest pictures. Cool build though!
Nice reel for a nice price!
Very nice details.
Nice size rockies
Always posting up really nice reviews! Thanks!
Nice pictures and great tips everyone.
Nice! Glad that the weather was nice for everyone on that trip.
That was great.
Thanks for sharing. Must have been a blast!
I haven't gone on them yet, but from what I've seen, these trips were limited to something like 6-8 people.
Nice work on those rods.
Sometimes when the price of fuel goes up, some landings will charge an extra "fuel surcharge" additionally. You said you go out of newport, isn't...
My first 1/2 & 3/4 day setup started with a shimano torium 16 with an ugly stick (yes, I know LOL). I actually liked it because first of all, it...
Pm sent as well.
I've done this before. Luckily the "wrong" email that I sent the payment to wasn't a valid paypal account/email address, so I didn't lose...
The work is killer, the more and more I see you work, the closer I get to wanting to get one done! Keep it up!
Terrific trip! Thanks so much for sharing. It's always great to see the different types of fish/fishing around the world!
I sense some sarcasm..
Haha I did see the color the first time. Just thought it was funny that you went back and bolded the words.
I found it funny that you went back and bolded the color description. I read it the first time.
Nice looking fish!
Great detail on the rod!
Get an ugly stick for it :rofl:
Just kidding, although my first rod was an ugly stick though. I use a calstar 700ml with my SX, but if you wanted...
Nice! Thanks for the report.
Very nice video. Thanks for posting.
Awesome to see!
Looks like you guys had a very successful trip.
I was at Hogan's last week, and they're always really helpful and give great recommendations.
30lb power pro slick for me for the most part.
Anyone know if we're getting those huge squid like last year?
Interesting setup... haha
Definitely nice to get back on the water, and 2 is better than nothing!
Really sucks. I hope they get caught.
Sweet rod. Nice build.
You should invest in a drag/spring scale so you could get the settings down to where you want it. If your original avet has numbers on the drag...
Awesome trip and catch to everyone that went! I'd also like to know what all of this ends up running you?
Yeah, I'd really like to see some pictures for this!
Is this the HG or the PG version?
It's pretty much used when you're fishing at a lake, and you have two rods in the water at one given time.
What types of solvents did you use to polish?
Looks like everyone had an amazing time!
Pretty nice rod. Nice work.
Looks like a great time. Thanks for sharing the pictures with us.
Just go the pier then since it's quick, easy, and convenient.
It's nice to have buddies like that!
Wow... I wouldn't even know what to say to her if I was him.. without making her sound like the biggest idiot in the world.
It's pretty amazing. I saw it yesterday. Double the megapixels and several times more frames per second if I recall.
Thanks for the tips everyone! This doesn't make the spectra all "stiff"? Or does that just mean that it's time to change the spectra out?
I appreciate reads like this because they're so detailed. Thanks for taking the time to do it.
Sweet. Very unique detail that makes it truly stand out.
Saw that and couldn't stop laughing. Huge flopper!
How much would expenses be to split? I know you already went, but if you ever need another, I'd love to join.
Great size bugs!
Hope he's okay. Glad you got some action though.
Awesome! Glad these guys got caught.
Thanks for the report. Sweet pictures!
There's a lot of questions to be answered on this one. As previously stated, try purchasing a drag scale and mess around with your settings....
I'm loving the wrap. Very nicely done!
That thing looks like a beast!
Nice work. Further details about pricing would be nice.
Glad you guys had fun.
Awesome catches! Any specific details on the fishing? Depth, rig, etc?
Nice to know that they're not too far away still.
Sweet. How heavy did the halibut come in at?
Nice! Congrats on the new boat!
Definitely looks like fun.
Great prices on the lobster gear. Wish I was closer!
That was great!
Thanks for sharing!
I don't own a boat, nor have I been around them very much. How did this actually happen?
I definitely see what you mean, but I agree, and would see an issue with the "limited load" that paying customers are actually paying MORE for.
If you happen to sell the TLD20II, I'd got a clamp available for it. Other than that, free bump!
At least you didn't come home empty handed. They could be a nice snack!
Wow.. crazy video!
I've always wondered too.. thanks for the tips!
Wasn't this stuff also just used to smoothen the transition from backing to the top shot too?
Very nice to see the process.
These look crazy! Nice detail, but not my cup of tea. Great work regardless.
Sweet! I was thinking about going on this one.. I missed out it seems!
Really successful trip!
I also buy the bulk packs on ebay. As earlier noted, make sure you buy the large ones because the small ones are tiny and don't work too well.
Did you ever get that one problem fixed? I remember seeing you posting about it.
That last part sounds incredible interesting and fun!
Sweet diamond wrap my friend!
Are all colors available?
Definitely unique and something you wouldn't see every day. Nice touches!
I've used both as my starter reels, and the 14 is great because it's small and really comfortable. In your case I'd recommend getting the 16 since...
I like the weaves. Very nice work!
I mainly use owner hooks, but when I'm feeling cheap I'll switch to the mustards. I always have both with me though.
Awesome. I wish I would've started fishing at his age.
I'd consider myself pretty new with all of this stuff too, but I just make sure to search before asking so I don't feel like an idiot before I...
I also use clinch knots but this video would have definitely been helpful when I first started out.
Not technically, but close. Just tried looking, and it'll run $279.99. Assuming you get the braid that they offer that is. Additionally, you'd get...
I would've been so bummed if it was blacked out. I've been looking forward to this upcoming MNF game!
I was debating about color too, and I think that when I searched around on here, it appears that the majority of people will go with white braid...
I like that one for sure!
Not a bad report at all.
I also clicked on this because I go through the "New Posts" and would have to say that I found this thread very interesting..
Nice catch indeed!
If you're going with straight mono, for a 3/4 day you should be fine with 25-30#. I typically fish with either p-line or izorline mono.
Thought this was funny because it takes me an hour to get to San Diego, and whenever I want to buy something down there, at least lately, I always...
Glad you are okay to fish another day
So based on the initial post, what were the expenses for each person anyways?
I'm still trying to find out if these work for any other reels. If I find out, I'll definitely let everyone know.
There also seems to have been a...
What color is the JX?
You're probably looking for cash, but Best Buy's trade-in values are actually pretty good. I think they offer gift cards though.
Could you PM me some sample prices on what you were quoted?
I know it's not on the list, but I started with a Shimano Torium 16, but after I got an SX, I'm in love with it.
Very nice, and creative design.
Does anyone know if these fit on other reels? I've received a few PM's asking, but I'm not sure since these are the only Shimano reels that I've...
Nice of you for trying to find the owner and just not keeping it for yourself.
It definitely is easier to manage when it's shorter. I think my kit came with a 75' line, and it does get annoying sometimes with the extra slack.
I've had paddle boarders cut my line when I've been on a jetty before.. it gets annoying.
I use 7' rods because my car is tiny and I don't think I could fit an 8' in it.
I've never really had much luck on piers, and have yet to catch a legal one off of one.
Thanks for the pictures. Great catch!
Looks like some killer deals
Went on a 3/4 day last week and this guy near me caught one. I think we were drifting at about 250 feet deep. I would assume it was a good 25lbs....
I think it's just the convenience of selling it locally, especially when you're in Southern California. Plus, don't have to wait for something...
If it's extended beyond 5 people, I'd like to try.
Nice job. Looks like a great rod.
Sweet work. I definitely like the wrap!
I'm supposed that all of that info actually made it into an article. Interesting read though I suppose.. haha.
Sounds like a very successful trip. Any pictures?
I really enjoyed the video as well. It was very well documented. I almost wish it was longer because I'm sure there was so much more than we missed.
I've got some Shimano reel clamps with hardware that I have lying around, and have never been used. If anyone is interested, let me know. Pictures...
Same goes for me, I've never fished for halibut yet. I've generally been using owner or mustard 2/0 hooks, but how is everyone rigging up? 6-10 oz...
Nice deal. I don't imagine it'll be around long.
I wish I could catch some that big..
Extremely jealous of the variety of fish you're catching out there. Thanks for sharing.
I definitely do like the color combo
Haven't gone on any long trips yet, but for the 3/4 day trips, I swap my top shots every 3-4 trips, and I'll swap the backing every 5-6 trips, as...
Is it just the yellow dot sales? If so, I've already hit up all of the stores in the Inland Empire!
Oh my goodness.
Can't wait to see the completed pictures.
I love my SX. It's great that such a small reel can handle so much sometimes.
Great report, and really nice dorado!
Very successful trip! Great catches!
Great work & clean welds.
That's awesome! I've been wanting to get on that boat for a while!
Single speed or the two speed version?
Nice! I was considering this trip.
I have a few, but have never caught any fish on them yet. When barracuda were biting, this guy next to me on the boat was killing it with his...
Looks like you guys killed it!
I'm sure they're a pretty penny.. construction looks awesome though. Great job.
Sweet looking rods.
Looks like fun!
Rooting* for the Chargers on this one!
Steamed, then dipped into a garlic, pepper, butter, & lime sauce always does the trick.
Beautiful weave. How long did it take?
Been wanting to book on the dolphin II soon, so some of these "limits" you see on the fish counts could just be small ones then?
PM'd about the ej
Definitely a nice combo! Hope it goes to a nice home soon.
PM'd you about it. Let me know what you think.
Didn't want to try it on a shimano terez? I don't own one, & can't remember the model number, but tried it on one, & it was pretty sweet.
I was comparing the two at first, but ended up buying a torium 16 because in my opinion, it just felt more comfortable and smoother.
That big one looks great!
Great haul, especially for a 3/4!
Really nice trip!
I wish I would've seen this a few days ago. Just bought a brand new one since no one replied to my wanted to buy posts.
That's incredible. I'm glad that you were able to find your gear, and so quick! Props to the gentleman that found it!
The crew from Dana Wharf has always been awesome out of the three times I've gone out there. They've got a nice operation going on. Lately though,...
Does this come with box & manuals?
Wish I would have seen these sooner. Great deals!
I guess that's a valid point and I forgot about that. So I suppose that means that you have to just wait until after 12:01am to actually legally...
Everyone that I've seen for the most part used mackerel, but salmon heads have actually worked really well for me.
I started hooping last year, but not at the beginning of the season. Does that mean you can technically drop your nets, say 30 minutes before...
Thanks for the reels boss! They're in good hands.
What color is the LX?
Pm'd you earlier.
This post is about 3 years old... just wanted to point that out.
Awesome job, I really like it.
That's a killer color combo!
Definitely breath taking shots. Keep it up.
Are they all sold?
If the sale didn't go through and it's still available, please let me know. Sent you a PM.
I think I PM'd you. If you didn't get it, please PM me.
Great advice that's in here. I actually started out on the Penn gt series, worked my way into a Shimano Torium 16, then now it's time to upgrade,...
Awesome reel. hope you sell it soon!
