lexa 400 and phenix black diamond 809h
I went out last week and threw the Shimano pop orca with no love. Another person was throwing a smaller Halco, 90 I think, and got a few. Couple...
played with the thought of a tac12ii or a tac16ii to put on my ulua 93h but didn't pull the trigger...just couldn't decide between the two
bought a tranx 500hg used, everything works well except i've got crunchy handle bearings...looking to upgrade them but could not find what size...
I actually picked up a factory wrapped salty crew 93h with the maroon blank. Wasn’t clear. It’s got cork tape on it
Thank you sir. This is the info I was looking for. Guess it’s time to just pick a reel
no reel seat on mine lol
looking at the trq 25, fathom 25n and trinidad 20a. Can anyone tell me if any of these will fit without the need for an additional reel clamp or...
Would I need a clamp kit? Ended up picking up a newer maroon blank 93h
trinidad 20a....most likely going to try to find a newer model or maybe look at UC rods
how thick are we talking?
can anyone tell me which ulua blank this is based on the picture? thinner lighter? thicker fat but?[IMG]
that seller carries lexas and their store is included in the 20% off

[ATTACH] [ATTACH] Just finished these. Varnish is drying right now

I release them all. Had a captain get mad at me for releasing them but I kept throwing em back anyways
anyone have experience with this bag? looking for a new bag for full day boats and was wondering how they are.

How are you guys tying the jig to the perfection loop?
Just wondering what size split rings and inline hooks you are using for the 60, 80 and 100 gram coltsnipers. Thanks
make sure you buy everything you want, as it's only good for 1 transaction :(
so i guess i shouldn't go when she's 38 weeks lol
Pleasure doing business with you
where in socal are you?
No one to said to give up fishing.
Hahaha don’t think passengers on a cattle boat would like that too much
Why not just get a tranx or Lexa?
I’ve talked to my wife about it. Curious about others is all
good point...guess even full day trips to the islands are off the books due to distance and cell reception
saw this thing in person...it's tits
how long did you guys fish while your wives were pregnant? More specifically, how late into the pregnancy were you guys going into mexican waters...
with all the love i've been seeing for these rods, i guess i should fish mine more

that's a frickin steal
I think $3500 is a little steep but to each their own
Also considering MXL raptors
Heard a 6 yr old say this after asking if he wanted to keep a fish. “Of course, don’t be a tree hugger”
over heard someone working at a tackle shop say that the owner circles are bigger than the mustad circles...any truth to this? didn't have a...

Looking more at irons a little heavier than the tady 45. Maybe up to 5 or 6 oz

Thanks for the input guys. Ended up picking up a Okuna PCH 7’6” H on amazon and it should be here Monday.

bump...looking for rod characteristics so i know what to look for
WhyMe - went to my local turners and they didn't have that rod in stock
What kind of action do they have? I've seen a few rods that looked good but were too whippy
Looking at getting a rod to use for throwing irons...anyone have suggestions as to what I should look for?
And doesn't even bring breakfast burritos
I was very tempted to throw a treble hook and an 8 oz weight at em to try to snag their gear
Haha I don't wanna get arrested for manslaughter but maybe water balloons will make them get it
saddest part about today was that they kept a...
Worst part was that the main culprit in the kayak was at least in his 60s :( and he looked straight at my buddy and I at least a dozen times
Over the past week, I've been intruded on by others fishing and it always shocks me. Is it just plain newbiness or is it just flat out rudeness?...

thanks for the report...i gotta get a sample for my microbiology teacher
Thanks for the comments guys...I was leaning both ways by figured in the end it wasn't worth spending 70 bucks to upgrade a $25 reel
to upgrade a Penn Surfmaster frame with a Tiburon topless frame? thoughts?
ah...looking for something to run 15-20
What line weight do you run on this?
this map is weird and inaccurate...says tamarack lagoon is off limits
Would the Avet MX series not belong in here too?

Ugh....now I wanna line my reel with braid. Gf isn't gonna be happy
Cool, I'll go check it out later today

a couple months ago, i was fishing a lake with my buddy and pulled out my phone to answer it. at that same moment, my buddy went to cast his bait...
I took a pic of someone's boat, but didnt see em bringing anything up
the only complaint about the license that bothers me is that it's only good for the calendar year rather than a year from when it was purchased.
i dont have that option
awesome catch! if you ever want a fishing buddy to go with you, lemme know..haha
had the opposite yesterday in oceanside. probably a 6 to 1 ratio at least
i live in an apartment with limited space, getting and having to sort through all my tools would be too big of a mess and my gf would murder me
please close this thread, i purchased one online
That's a bummer. Saw a few boats in la jolla today...wonder how they did
what a cow!
Too much swell in the water right now. Should clear in a few days
anyone happen to have a schematic or pictures of this reel taken apart? Had to take mine apart because the gear sleeve froze and I'm not sure how...
off day session looked insane...i'd be scared and poop my pants just sitting in the channel...
good info here...i was wondering the same stuff
way to go!!!
talk about super sized
bah...wish i could get this stuff on Amazon...the shipping a lot of these sites is pretty bad
just seeing if anyone has a spare one they wanna get rid of since the used reel i picked up didn't come with one.
Sounds like an awesome trip with great company. Couldn't ask for anything more
awesome stuff Dan
not rare at all...they're all over the place down here in san diego, but ignorance is bliss
i was just gonna do a rebuild via Alan Tani's instructions and was wondering about different oils
beautiful sandy! good job!
i'm looking to use it on a jigmaster 500 if that makes any difference
which do you guys prefer? I've read a ton about Corrosion X on here but haven't found much about the Penn oil....
beautiful catch man
any surf shop should carry ear plugs...worth using especially if you wanna avoid surfers ear and getting your ears drilled...
I just found out...
saw a couple guys pull 3 or 4 small threshers off the Oceanside pier too...was pretty sad to see, especially when the biggest of em was maybe 3 ft
"who doesn't wanna taste these?"
from what i'm hearing, its been really slow off the pier itself, so you may have better luck outside the mouth of the harbor
thanks, the 500 i got already has a Tiburon frame, so i was just wondering...where in San Diego are you located?
i'm looking more for the left side plate, which i can't find a part number for
