Awesome! I need to get out.
Awesome day. Thanks for the report.
Caught this with a 400X. Very smooth drag and I like the size better than my 16A. I still like the 14A as my workhorse 25lb but the 400X is my new...

Awesome work. I’ll be going next week so it’s good to hear.
Awesome! Thank you doug
How would you say the fish looked? Were there good numbers and they just didn’t really want to play or was it hard to find schools. I’m planning...
I’ll take the 14A. Pm inbound
Free Friday if you need a new fishing friend!
Thank you. Exactly what I needed to know.
Awesome! Glad you got some.
I have been watching the SD full day boat reports and either they haven’t been going out or their reports aren’t that great for the yellows....

That is a great report. Thanks for sharing
Congratulations. My buddy was on the trip. Lost the BFT he hooked. But did say Yellowtail were wide open. Got pics of said Bluefin? Just cause I'm...
GLWS, I would get this if I didn't have to spend the money on a new driveway.
Anyway you can meet me in Irvine Sat morning? I’ll be coming from LB

Love eBay. If I don’t get my reels used on the forums are usually go to eBay. Got a new Komodo 471 for $184.

Interested in the 80H for $160. Can’t send you a PM for some reason
Wish you were closer. Let me know if you ever decide to ship to Lakewood Ca.

Next year when my son turns 8 I plan to take him on one of your TV charters. That way he has a good chance of getting on the fish.
Awesome report! Tha ks
I miss my 14a....I was stupid to sell it for the 16a. It was perfect for 15- 30lb.
Tranx300HG....$220.99 thank you!
Sorry but she really likes my Tranx but it’s a lefty. Thank you though.

Pending trade——-Have a very clean Tac 10ii I bought off another BD member last year. Only took it out twice as a back up but never got into the...
Nice report! Thanks
I’ll take it. PM sent........lol
65lb pp and 40lb short leader. IMO 65lb just comes off the reel so much nicer than 50lb.....so I’d go with 80lb MC if you wanted to go heavier.
Regret selling mine. GLWS. Awesome rod at a great price.
Trinidad 16a or 20a. At that budget might as well go all out. Or even a Tranx 500HG. All can be found used in here and save you $100.
I had a Truth SG...great reel. I had it on a Black Diamond 808....but I’m a star drag guy and went back to my 14a. But for a lever drag it is a...

I really need a 7ft but if I had to put a price I’d say $200. Haven’t fished it much. I take it out a lot but mostly fish my 808 and UC Rod more.
I was actually hoping to trade towards a rod but I’d be firm at $175 cause it’s my favorite rod.

I’ll take the 7ft 20-40...I sent you a text. Thanks
Thank you Jaime for the great service you guys provided.
Please delete. My post was irrelevant
Thanks for the replies, I was thinking of going on the City of LB since Mitch was there.
I had mine on a PSW-809H but I really like it on my M1 9H more. Such a light combo. Great for school is sized fish and the 3 B’s.
Just curious if anyone has info on what happened to the Southern Cal that went from Pierpoint to Berth 55....been doing 3/4 days and overnights....
Great reel....but for my 9ft I like the Tranx500 and Trini16A. I usually buy new at FH or I buy my stuff in BD classifieds. Some good deals for...

Pm on the way
I like the Trini handle more and would put one on but don't want to spend any more money on the reel.
Tranx 401. If your 300 works good but you need the extra capacity than the 400 size would be the best option
Lol, I actually said not HD twice. So changed the second post. Didn't mean to tell repo I had already said it before him.
Sorry already said. (Not to above post) I posted not had twice so changed this one.

Mines on a Black Diamond PSW-909H
2nd on the Lizardfish. Lol/Jk
Now if it is Prime it should arrive in 2 days. Anything else could be grounds for thinking it could be fake.
Thanks for the report. Just knowing some new fisherman caught their first fish is fine with me. Must have been fun for them.
Thanks for the info
I have mine on either a PSW-808MH or 809H. It can handle the big Yellowtail so I'm sure local schoolie tuna would have been no problem.
I just put the 12a handle on just to make sure.
Which handle did you go with, 12a? Looks good. I'd like to do the same so it matches my 500 and Trini's.
What is the 12ii spooled with?
These kill rockfish and Sculpin. I'd buy them if I didn't have a bunch already.
That's awesome! Way to go.
Try Huntington Harbor. Leopards can be caught there. Especially at night. I haven't personally done it but my friend used to do it pretty...
Before you said it was your brother I was thinking "Had to be your wife's brother or something" lol
Sounds like fun. I like big bonito on light gear.
Nice, cant wait to get in on the action soon
Nice, hope the numbers start to pick up
Oh wow, guess I won't be going there. Thats some BS.
Hey Tom, do you mean the one in Alamitos bay?
I have the 400 on order. I plan to use either my PSW-808MH or SMX-82MH.
I think the M1 would be perfect for the 300. Or even the Abyss 807.
Sorry, I ordered is over a week ago.
Let's get these released already. Lol.
I preordered one a week ago and can't wait. I knew by the time I made it to the show everyone would be sold...
Nice one! Congrats.
PSW-808 or 809.

Still there code is "flash17" paid $265 including shipping.

Thanks for the info. Hopefully the yellows start biting soon
You sir have the best reports. Thanks for sharing.
I think he meant that it IS a good price because he thought it would cost more.
I was thinking it was going to be closer to $400 myself. Great price.
I have mine on a PSW-808MH 15-40. Love how light this set up is. Might have to throw the Tranx 400 on it when I get one.
Sooooo. With what your saying is there going to be left hand versions of these new 300/400 sized Tranx reels?
Very excited for this reel. I'll miss FH because of some Air Force class I have to attend that week. Hoping to get my hands on one as soon as I...
You are correct. I didn't mean a bad trip all together. Just sorry he didn't enjoy his. It's rare anybody has one on that boat. Hope to be there...
Sorry you had a bad trip. I usually do all my 1/2 days on the Southern Cal now. Ryan and Mitch will get you on the fish if the fish are around....
Bump for a great deal and beautiful 993.
Wow, no sculpin? That's my usual go-to this time of year. Actually hoping to jump on a boat to get some this weekend.
Awesome, I think maxcuatro will be my next purchase. Thank you for your replies.
That's awesome. Wish I was older and wiser when our ships would pull into Thailand. I would have loved to go fishing. Only thing I caught was a soapy
Nice Butt.....He must work out!
Great fishing indeed. Thanks for the report.
It's just the diameters are 30=.28mm, 40=.32mm, 50=.36 and 65=.41mm are all close to .04mm difference. So it's odd the 40lb and 50lb only ads...

Very nice haul. I really need to make one last trip for the year.

Awesome job. Must be nice to get a yellow in late Dec.
Awesome! That's what I was hoping for. I love my 16NA and wanted to make sure he wasn't going to be undergunned if a big yellow came around.

Awesome Dan. I plan to make the ones you have at Cerritos Regional next year to get my little boy on his first fish.
I havd the 8'2"H 20-45 matched to a NaCL 60 and its my go to. From rockfish and bass all the way up to a 22lb Yellowtail. Its my favorite setup.
Nice Calico, been years since I caught one that big.
Wow, wish I would have seen this before. Great gun at a nice price.

Truth SG on order Friday the 27th. Can't wait till its delivered.
Nice, think I'll be waiting for one of these instead of the toro beast. The beast holds the same capacity as the NaCl.
Go to Calguns.net and search for those calipers. Then you can see the going price and sell in their forums.
Awesome boat. Might be what I might be trying to get into.
I have both. Caught 30lb yellows on both rods. I know it isn't their max but they handled them easy. The 808 has an MJX and the 809 had a SX...
Congratulations on such a great trip. That is a great haul.
Awesome, local Yellows in Nov.
Nice catch. Nice Sheephead
Wow, what a haul!
Nice yellow! Congratulations.

What a gem, congratulations to the new owner.

Awesome day of fishing right there.
Hope you get that beauty back and unharmed. Praying they catch these POS's too.
Great price, wish this was up when I bought mine. GLWS

Phenix Abyss PSX-808 or PSX-809
Thanks for the report. Id be happy with that considering I haven't been able to go out since July. Good luck on your future trips.
That's an awesome trip. 11 people fishing a sport boat would be so much fun. Congratulations on a successful trip.
Single speed MXJ is good all around. But also look at the SX Raptor. More drag and about the same capacity as the MXJ single speed.
Just sold my SX Raptor to buy a 16Na. It's a really nice reel. You can tell the tolerances are tighter and just has that high end factor. But I...
I feel you on getting burned out. I just had a kid the beginning of last month and I'm burned out of staying home on my days off. :eek: Best bite...
I had to choose and I went with the Trini 16NA. For me it was the little extra drag and narrow spool.
Awesome, I need to get in on the YFT this year too.
Looks like a clean reel to me. I'd hold out cause from what I can see you're asking a fair price for the reel in your pictures.
I had my SX Raptor on an Abyss 809 20-50lb.

I see you live I Buena Park. I'd try Youngs in La Palma. He's on the corner of La Palma and Carmenita..... Or I would look at YouTube and there's...
Dude, best selfie I've seen all year!
Awesome report and congratulations on the fish.
Awesome, congratulations to you. I wish mine would want to go more often. Here's to many more years of her asking you to go fishing
This is another good combo. I had my SXj on this same rod too.
Never used the penn but I can say the metaloid is a great little reel and perfect for your #20 bait reel. Can also be bumped up to #30 easily and...
I have the Mxj on a 808 and Trini 16NA on an 809 rod. They are awesome. Great choice.
Look at the phenix M1 Inshore series. I have a SMX82. 8'2" 20-45. Awesome rod that I think would be perfect. I have an SXj single speed, metaloid...
Last time he posted was May!
Good little reel. A little bigger than an Avet SXJ. Holds 50yds more line at a little less than 300yds of 50lb braid. Had a lot of drag but curve...
GLWS, this is the type of boat I will own some day.
That sounds like a good day.
What I would give for barely legal cuda/calico. New baby means no fishing for me any time soon. Lol
Great job on the yellows!
Freaking awesome job Tito!
I do agree. You don't have much drag until you get to strike. Great reel for the money. I just enjoy the Avets more. It's the familiarity to me.
Lol not a big difference in my book. Put them side by side and they look the same. Metaloid is just heavier with a longer handle. 1/4 is barely...
Put them side by side and they're the same size. The middle of the Okuma is smaller hence the extra capacity. I just traded my ok uma yesterday...
I was looking for better shots that compared the SXJ and MXJ sizes side by side. Did not find any that had the reels really close. I wanted a...
Good reel. I had a 5NII but missed my Avets so I traded it. Casts a mile and has plenty of drag. The 5NII is the exact same size as my SXJ single...
Great job. Wish I had a boat.
Nice fish! Way to go on the YFT.
As others have said, I liked my SX Raptor because of its small size. Had over 400yds of 50lb braid on it so it held plenty on line. I usually have...
I have mine on either a Phenix Abyss 808 20-40lb or Phenix M1 8'2" 25-45lb. Works great with either Rod. Have caught from sand dabs to YT on these...
SXj is an awesome reel.
Awesome report. Your the man Tito!
Gone, thank you BD.
no thank you. I already have an SXJ.
Thank you for the offer but really don't want gold or silver.
Thank you for the offer. I love that color too but will let you know if anything changes.
I'd really have to get the MC because my son will spend half the day clearing birds nests. I sometimes take him and this will be used by him....
Nice quick trip!
Freaking Awesome. I have a Hobie Mirage sport I'd like to take out fishing. Your video inspires me to at least try a break wall or something close.
Looking to trade my Metaloid for an MXJ MC. This is the 2 speed narrow. 9.9 cosmetically because it has two very small scratches (pic 1)above the...
Not mine but great Rod. I use an SXj or Nacl60 with mine. Killed a couple big yellow and barracuda with it. M1 SMX-82h...
Yes, great rod. Free bump.
Good job! I need to get out there before they are all gone.
That's for the single speed SXj. Raptors go for $400.

I have 300yds 50lb PP and 4ft top shots of 30lb flouro. There's enough room for a longer mono top shot for the crowded boats. It a good all around...
Have the Abyss 809 w/ a 16NA and I like it more than the sx raptor I had. It's kind of like a tac8II. I think I like the star drag. Plus depending...
Very nice! We killed the cuda and some yellows in that area on Friday.
I usually get there early and find parking on the street or in the neighborhood.
Very nice haul!
Awesome job gentlemen!
I'd look for an Phoenix abyss 808 or M1 15-35 or 20-45. Always can be found on the threads. Perfect from rockfish to YT. Can be found for $150. If...
Great price, wish I saw this last week cause I just bought a new one.
Awesome, Thank you very much.
Love the Southern Cal! Favorite boat for a short 1/2 day. Limited on sculpin just a couple days ago. Wish we would have gotten into the cuda.
Nice quality fish. Thanks for the report.
Raptor still available. A lot of interest, could not make some face to face meetings.
Saltist sold. Raptor still pending till end of the day then I will contact in order or PM's sent.
Both reels pending. Will update if they sell. A lot of interest in the raptor and if first guy doesn't buy it I will give next person a chance in...
Talica 8II for $417. Stoked!
I purchased the red and agree that it's hard to follow your bait. I had to put my rod in the holder because the boat was too crowded and I caused...
Love this reel. Will be my next as soon as I sell my Avet SX raptor
I dont think it can do better fishing wise. But it's a higher end reel. My wife bought me a metaloid that does the same thing as the raptor and...
Replied to PMs
Update: Raptor still available. And I have sent out PMs some people have replied some have not. First to come with that cash gets the reel. I can...
Gone. Thank you
Actually now Pending FTF.
I've been waiting for some PM replies.
All Pm's replied to. Will update if/when I have a pending sale. Thank you.
Got in a trade for a Teramar I was selling but was bigger than I thought. Just traded to me this week and not going to use it. Don't know much...
That sounds good. I think ill have it up for sale since it's bigger than the reel I'd like my boys to use for the 1/2 days they go on.
Either NaCl but I went from the 50 to the 60 for the extra capacity.
Awesome thank you guys.
I've saw a Lexa 300 handle a 25lb no problem last month. I think the NaCl can handle more.
So I had a Teramar for sale and was offered a trade for a Saltist 30t. I figured my sons could use it so I agreed to the trade. Well it's alot...
NaCl 50-60. Can get them $219 on EBay instead of the $300 local price. I have one on the same rod.
I have the Nacl 60 and love it. I was selling it because I got a metaloid but decided it's too much of an all around reel to let go. I had the...
Decided to keep. Thanks
I have a Teramar that has been taken to a 1/2 Day but never even pulled on a fish. I purchased this Rod new from a BD member with tags attached. I...
PM on the way
I have a barely used NaCl 60 for sale. I had plans to use this reel a lot but since my wife got me a metaloid for my birthday this doesn't get...
Nothing else was out there. We didn't even try to go for anything else. And yes the chop was pretty bad.
Yes in that area.
Went out for the morning 1/2 day on the Southern Cal out of Pierpoint. I had a groupon to use by the end of the month. I figured why not, I saw...
Yes, Straight mono. But I now have 30lb PP with a Flouro topshot for the extra line because the fish are deeper. The day I went the fish were all...
Congrats on the Yellow.
love my SX Raptor and would love the MXJ if I had the money. GLWS.
Good Luck! Wish I didn't have to work.
I like the Phenix Abyss 807 12-30lb.
Nice going. A blast when you see your iron get hit on the surface.
Have to try that boat out soon
I'll have to pull out on my availability on the Teramar. Had a buyer flake and don't have the extra funding.
I like the 60 for the extra capacity and it doesn't really feel much wider than the 50. I haven't gotten anything over 5lb calicos on them though....
Thanks, love the reels by the way.
Nice read, thank you.
My friend paid $159+ tax for an all gunmetal Blem at Turners w/ no line.. Couldn't find the blem part though.
PM on Teramar
Nice fish, makes me want to walk to the fridge for a beer.
Hump day bump
Both mine have them and it helps when I loan them to friends who don't fish as often.
Nice looking fish, cant wait to get out there

Sounds like another good day.

Killed it, another great report
Congratulations! Great job, especially on the 300 for her first fish.
Nice read! Such an awesome trip and story to go along with it.
Nice fish! Good luck the next 5 years of fishing.
Awesome few hours!

Interested in Abyss 809. What are are you located in.
Guy is going to take a look tomorrow and see what he wants to take. I'll update tomorrow night.
Looks like a good day to me. I only fish the 1/2 day cattle boats so 5 fish is usually a good day for me.

Awesome, hope to be catching some on Friday. What set up and bait were you using? Thanks.
Thanks for the report. Dropper loop or lead head? Was thinking of getting on the Friday trip if I cant make the 1/2 Day out of LB.
Damn, I'd be stoked if that was me. I have never caught a Bluefin.
Would love to one day have a day like that.
Can I get info about the Teramars. Length and handle type. You can text me 310-918-8405.
Awesome thank you. I found one but will buy a second next month. I'll have to check them out because I've heard a lot of good things about them.
They go for $40 online. If you are close to the Cerritos area and I can pick up, I'll do $35. I need it for A trip Friday. You can text me at...

Awesome 1/2 day. We are stuck with sculpin, bass and cuda if your lucky.
