Who makes black braid
I ordered the 76 xh don’t feel bad
I have one. Looking for a united composite 40-50 lb rod
its such bullshit, then let people pay with a check.....
Buy a okuma pch xxh rail rod on amazon for 200 bucks, can't beat it
I hope so I don’t really love catching 90 lbers on 30 lb bait rigs!
Finally a report thank you!
For sure like 70 ish miles. left at 7 and were catching fish 7 hours later.
This is going to be my set up as well
4 days still no response.
Service is supposed to be free for the Makairas for the first 5 years. If I had a work order or something to look at I would know if it includes...
Okuma was more than fair with the service and warranty once i was able to discuss it with them.
so cool to see. next year i plan to bring them some clothes and shoes for sure!
this is the best you can get for what your looking for....
United Composite RUS Monster rated 30-60. These rods have a light tip but plenty of...
I cant imagine that they would make that rod so it didn't fit the bigger Andros but interested to hear......
Sorry but that's far from the truth. The only reason you should have a Mak 8 at Lupe would be to make bait.
that's a good one too. The Makaira 15 is not a good fit for the OSP or the Okuma xxh. They are rail rods, in my opinion the Mak 15 does not...
Here is the deciding factor, does the xxh have a long foregrip for fishing the rail? I haven't seen one in person. If it does don't put the 15 on...
Just some food for thought. That reel doesn't seem to be the best fit on that rod. The reel really should be a 50-60lb reel. Yes it will fish...
"What looked like a Marlin?" Marlin and Tuna look a little different.... Marlin have long beaks. What was it?
For them to steam all the way down and come in late is very admirable, not many boats would spend the money. Customer satisfaction is priority on...
I was hoping someone would report that trip. Thank you for taking the time to fill us all in!
Why would they even ask them to sign a waiver. They paid for a 2.5 day and came back early it makes no sense you can't defend that. There were a...
Good to hear they are still there though!
what are you going to be using it for?
It absolutely kills me when you "guys" have to check with your wife and let them tell you what you can do. Grow some balls! I buy what I want I go...
Its definitely not a big eye, its a hybrid albacore silver fin tuner.
if the dude wasn't a whack job
I'm interested, what makes it a 500 dollar rod?
I would consider Mr Tang as a resident expert are landing large fish. He called your reel marginal and that’s what it is. Borrow a reel or find a...
I don’t see why you even asked the question, Myself and others are giving you opinions like you asked and your disputing the opinions you don’t...
Where can you buy frozen flying fish?
You could but why would you want to. You have a chance to catch the biggest Bluefin of your life and your going to try doing it with sub par gear....
why did you drag it behind the truck?
Kyree is the best. He made the best burrito I have had in my life.
I have a grafighter 765 ml 40-80
Centaur for sure. And 7'6'' that 6 inches is nice when they go under the boat.
I bought a mak 16 with a raptor and a mak 20 with a viper before my 2016 lupe trip so I'm ready. Haven't hooked one over 90 yet
Perfect 60 lb reel
wrap it for me and ill buy it
The cook does suck, and his food sucks too.
did you catch the bigger one on a glow in the middle of the day?
Which jigs would you say were most successful
I didn't see anyone get hooked up that's insane! Just one right?
Maybe the fish are irritated with your spelling
Me too, lets gettum!
super healthy looking fish
I would adjust your bait setups to the following
UC Raptor- Mak 16- fish 60-80 lite bait setup the centaur is too heavy to fish 60 in my opinion...
"My wife said I can get another reel!" I would ask if you can have your balls back too.
With that said the Mak 15 isn't my favorite its kind of a...
I love okuma but the last webpage sucked and it sounds like this new one isn't much better.
Wouldn't want to catch a Bluefin on these. Hey do you happen to have Jesus's beeper number?
There are going to be so many boats out there the Bluefin are going to be skidding anyway. Catch your limit of yellowtail and drink a lot so your...
get the mak 16 and either the raptor or centaur.
If your more likely to fish 60-80 go raptor, 80-100 centaur. Not a better set up out there....
Terez setup lmao! Ask any long range captain they are noodles.
The mak 16 is a 60-80lb reel and my favorite. The 20 is a 100lb reel and is much much bigger and a handful to fish live bait all day with.......
I used one at Guadalupe and loved it. The Makaira 20 and the Andros 16 are two very different reels.
If you catch a good size yellowfin at lupe on a long soak that Mak 10 will get spooled.
Andros 12 narrow high speed
That’s a hell of a trip. Love that place
Caught this one on a jig on the andros 12
Headed out with them tomorrow night can’t wait.
Fill the 16 with 80. At Guadalupe it makes a difference. Put 100 on the Mak 20.
Black socks it is
One of my very first trips chappy was the cook. Super cool guy.
You absolutely do not want to catch something that big on a 10 foot rod
If your fishing 40-50 on it no need for anything heavier than 65.
When I was on the bot in December Russ mentioned that big fish were blowing up the 65 on the first run
I caught a 80 lber on a 700h and felt it was out of power. I can't imagine a 140 on a 700m
Nail hits head. Put 80 braid on the 16 because it makes a difference if you go to Guadalupe
I was going to buy it until he called it a pole
I fished Guadalupe last year and not a single person fisher mono top shot. A sardine may be able to pull mono off the reel easier but dragging...
Have my own gear and money for expenses.
Don't care about destination as long as offshore.
Pm or text
Those are weird tunas. Their wings are really long
The 16 is pretty comfortable, the 20 to me is a tank compared to the 16. 16 will get it done no problem line capacity not an issue
Go get em Darin!
Or you could go with the guy that was seeker and broke off to make the best rods period. United Composites
doesn't get any better
No 60 lb mono. No bait fish wants to drag that thru the water. 60 lb bait rod.
Please stop calling it a pole!
Shocked that Invictus snapped. I'm sure you will get another one free
what size line and hooks are you fellers using on these paddies?
Raptor 7'6" for sure, Centaur for 100, viper 130
Shimano makes bikes too right. Nothing else needs to be said.
Centaur for the talica 20. Raptor is 60-80 centaur 80-100
I went last December and fished 60 the whole time for tuna and 130 on the dropper loop
I would hate to be pulling on 40lb with a nice tuna on...
Get the 12
What he said ^
Mike is an excellent captain and really cool guy to fish with. Will be taking advantage of this soon.
They pulled this same thing with me. Ordered an item never got, called and "oh we don't have the product. Well thanks for the heads up. Bad business
It's a nice rod. I used it there in December on the dropper loop and caught yellows up to 42 lbs. strong rod. It wouldn't be my go to for bait though.
I was there in December, those rods will be bent in half and you won't be able to budge those tuna one bit. Go heavier
Sell it on eBay, I got 430 for mine
I loved the tony Pena/bob sands and had never had a failure until fishing those big bluefin at tanner bank. I know I didn't cinch knot down enough...
I have a used calstar 700h
That I could sell you and save you some money
Add the makaira 10 or avet Jx and you have an extremely versatile set...
I may do that. Swap my makaira 15 for a andros 16. I ordered a predator 7'6" yesterday
I went in December and used the Makaira 16 and raptor 76 almost the whole time. Perfect set up. Next year a predator 76 and makaira will make the...
All you asshats that were to stupid and stubborn to realize this was a "job" should apologize to the realists
Gillette put me on a big blue fin once, but he is an absolute retard to try and pull this off
Well this one was around 110 and put up a good fight. Difference was long soak so already 200 yards out and then ran and ran and ran. Very...
Never fished, approximately 500 yards of Jerry brown 80 lb spectra
No box and has a couple of nicks on it. Check photos. 500 shipped
Thanks for the comments everyone, excited and was curious what to expect once I get bit. I did catch a 90 lber at tanner on 80lb with a mak 16 and...
Have my first trip on the tenth to the island and curious how they compare.
Great report Alan
You don't think the andros 12n is a good 50 jigging reel?
I actually have mine on the Makaira 701xh right now because I'm putting a andros 12 narrow on the Calstar 700h. It's a great Rod. Landed many 50...
I wouldn't fish more than 50 on the 700h. I don't feel like the mak 10 is a 60 reel though. It has the balls to but not capacity. I use mak 15 for 60.
Calstar 700h all day
Do you still have a mak 16 for sale ?
Pm you Jesse
I have one sitting here waiting for the Komodo to go on it. I got the 801 xh 20-40. Really cool looking Rod.
Sounds like a perfect time to test it out!
Why on earth would you not take them on your 1.5 day
As a matter of fact I have made a pre order for one
Funny i saw a post today that there will in fact be a narrow metaloid 12 shortly
Selling a used avet lx mc 2 speed left hand
I don't think this reel has ever caught a fish. My dad could never get the hang of a conventional.
nevermind, you cant sell it because fishermans headquarters has them for 162 shipped.
Not a good price
will you mail it to las vegas?
That andros will look great on a makaira 701 Xh or 801 Xh for bait and throwing iron I would lean toward the 8 footer. Really good looking rods.
What does sell pending mean?
They make longer ones, call ton and he will send you some. Had same issue
700m and 765ml
I really feel like its a 50 lb rod max. I have a Calstar 700h which I feel is true 50 lb rod and the Okuma doesn't have as much backbone as the...
Where are you located? I know shipping is expensive but I should be in Huntington Beach soon.
I think it would be fine. The 50 lb bluefin in my photo was caught on a 701 xh
500 yards of 65 power pro with about 40 yards of 50 lb mono on top.
What's a albacore?
I have one just haven't fished it yet
There's absolutely no reason to offer a second gear set for an extra $25 dollars when the 2 speed is a minimal additional cost.
Buy the 2 speed...
Service service service
That is a jig reel
I made the same mistake.
The metaloid 5 2 speed is perfect. Could even fish 40 based on drag.
If money isn't a concern the...
catch all of them on live shad?
I have the metaloid 5 2 speed and it's really awesome
Super light, drag is extremely smooth. Sold my avet after I got it.
For the price you...
This is why I am selling all my avets, and the the fact that the new metaloid is siiiiiick!
I wanted a whole set up
Where are you located?
I bought a 5 and a 12!
Shimano baitrunner 100%
Will let the bait run free, small anchovies may have to feed line.
It would be perfect. My dad hates combentions and...
Preferably seeker or calstar

Would you fish 40 on the 5 2 speed?
clearly a Bluefin
pre ordered the 5 2 speed from JH tackle.
Awesome, you have it on a 701h makaira?
Is that a 5 or 12?
Sold thanks Andy
Sale pending from Andy pending payment.
3 people have said that I'm waiting for the first to pay.
That's my paypal
Keeping that. I'll do 130 shipped.

Let me look at what others have sold for.
I literally have never caught a fish on it.
I don't think I ever even fished it.
I have a mxl 2 speed...
I will ship though if you pay via PaypalPaypal
Selling a avet mxj blue blem I bought from baja tackle.

These yellowfin are acting mighty weird. Only biting the troll. Hopefully next week they come up and bite bait!
Am I reading this right that all the yellow fin were caught on the troll? Heading out tomorrow night on the big bird.
Wait 3-5 seconds and flip the lever when bit. No need to swing either. Lift and they are on.
Then don't panick when line is peeling off your...
Will you be doing any 1.5 trips soon?
I'll trade you for a rocket launcher
is it sold?
most would describe Sharla as EPIC

no roller guides in good condition
50 will get it done. It did last year.

new or used makaira 10 sea not gold
will you send to Las Vegas?
I bought a reel on here from a guy who said it was used once and didnt catch any fish on it. I took it on a trip and the drag acted really...
