[ATTACH] [ATTACH] Kodiak bait tank.
No idea what size it is. Approx 32” tall.
Located in North Fontana.
Net not included.
Still available as of now.
It’s also listed on CL, so naturally there has been a lot of “false interest” with individuals setting date/time to...
Maybe we can move the Panga talk somewhere else...? Or, kindly PM the individual instead?
Regardless, thanks for the bump!
Thanks Aaron! I’ll check it out.
Found some deals in Texas (of course), but not looking forward to the drive..
For sale again.!
Still looking for a 20-22’ Bay boat to replace my whaler.
I know right! Cool panga tho.
Been looking in the Gulf Coast region heavily as well, but keeping my hopes up that something surfaces in SoCal.
Thanks guys... but not exactly what I’m looking for..
Looking for a 20-22’ Bay Boat with a 4 stroke. Trolling motor is a plus but not required. Cushion package and rear seat would be a ++.
Trolling motor is still available .
Terrova Riptide I-Pilot 80# 24v 60” shaft in great condition. Used 6 times. Includes controller of course.
Please text Cesar
I’m in Playa Vista during the week, and home on the weekends. It would have to be very late in the day if it were during the week.
If you’re interested in purchasing, feel free to have a looksee.
I can verify the trailer tag clearly states 18’ Dauntless and was manufactured by Pacific and recently had work performed by them at the direction...

The Fin usually has them. Had one 2 weeks ago.
That was fast.
Good boat. Best of luck to potential new owner. She’s fishy for sure.
So if I slammed my tailgate on a Calstar they’ll replace it for free?
I wouldn’t mind buying her back.
PM sent on the TZS
M or MH would be good.
Let me know if ya got one for me.

Back up. Waiting on some responses otherwise still for sale and still looking for a jig stick for surface irons.
Thanks for the offer, but really looking for a nice spinner.
Used exactly one time. Braid not included. Will consider trades for nice spinning reel in the 5000-6500 size.

Is that a thumb bar, or just a thumb rest?
Did you pick up the 808 or 809?
I think they have the 909 at Long Fin. I Was there today...
Possibly, I’ll give it a few more days. I have a 709 and 807, so maybe the 808 can fill another rod holder.

Conquest have the power handle?
PM’ed on the conquest
BTW: I’m not convinced there’s such thing as too big of a trolling motor, unless you have specific power needs.
Both my 17’ and 22’ ran the same 80#.
Talked to this guy last week. He was running it on a pontoon boat. It’s a 24v 80# and he ran it on 12v (1 battery). Not sure what that...
Let me know if ya got one
Won’t make past tomorrow more than likely.
Texted you, called and left a message as well. Let’s talk.!
Call me back. Let’s make it mine.
Nice!, but way too much boat for me.
You weren’t selling a Scout Duarado DC a while back were you?
Yeah that’s a bit more than I’d like to handle. Depends on the year I guess.
Really hoping for fiberglass. Thanks tho
I can’t find it.

We should get all the Wall fans together and party at the Wall!
Well Matt, in my case, I would be embarrassed to disclose the amount of tackle I've lost to The Wall!!
Thru 2013 we fished The Wall religiously 2 to 3 times a month, both day and night, usually on our way out or way in from somewhere else.
I was pleasantly surprised at how accessible the filters and pump are. Took around 2 1/2 to 3 hours to complete.
It was the fuel pump.
Replacement installed this morning and clicking on/off as it should. Appears to be running better with all new fuel filters...
Great vid as always.
Love his Everglades too!
Well, it wasn't any of the fuel filters. It continues to blow the feed pump fuse!
Next step is replacing the pump.

Go at dark. Work the inside at either gate.
5" darks. Paca Chunks if ur looking for volume.
That's a valid point you make. But when you own a boat, you do not have to deal with the hassle of relying on someone else. You can feed the urge...

Cool lil rig!
Would he be interested in splitting? I only need the RH.
Sweet! When u taking me out?
Those conditions make for a very pleasant ride over!!
Motor size? Petro consumption at cruise?
Yes..... Yes it does.
Google bow dodger or bow tent.

Just curious for comparison, what are u guys getting for fuel consumption vs. speed on your 20'+ bay boat? (average)
22' with a 250

Good luck to you guys and as always, stay safe during the Challenge!

What BigD said.
Heat both desired colors, pour first color, allow to cool until it will no longer run, pour second color.
Well then, you'll have to join us on a night sess some time. My boats almost always half staffed.
MIke, yes... My boat is very clean, again....OCD.
[ATTACH] That confirms my OCD. I have to organize similar to what you all listed above, but I have to store them tails up or I can't sleep at night.
So there is no concern of deformed baits?
Damn Josh, we should do an island run. Your plastics my boat. :)
Bringing this back up. Have been running a 4 blade 14x19 and still seems to hit the rev limiter early although it has great mid range performance....
Curious how others store their swimbaits..?
You guys ever worry about deformed tails or colors bleeding after prolonged storage?
Same. Microwave, Pyrex, and a heat gun. Larger batches are easier for me to control(ie 3-4oz). For baits that have minimal undercuts, I like the...

My bro-in-law has fished the old Accurist in salt for ~ 6 monthes with no issues to date. He does rinse after every use. I've fished his set-up...
Nice cooler combos.
Damn clean work!
Eye spy sexy shad.
Bottom of the grip will be etched with it's "technique specific" badge.
I understand that the blanks are still TC4, but I was under the impression that the actions have changed. I've owned the earlier model Teramars,...
If you've fished the new WC Teramar series with the split grip and up-locking reel seat, please provide opinions on the action/actions. It's been...
Spinning gear and cigarettes. Love it.
Nice vid gents!
The seats in mind are what Shimano is currently using on many of there 2013 line-up (and some of their previous rods). The thread is in the rear...
Yup.. Gold blade with chart head and white/chart skirt no trailer.
Scroungers work awesome too, large bill with white/chart skirt and 4" atomic...
Wow, all four units went bad? Same issues with all four? Was it the spool bearings?
Checked it, even by-passed the fuse and still nothing.
Upon further review, the unit is a 546s. I loaded the most current software on an sd card and was able to install it, but the unit shut off and...
You mean you were not allowed to take a quick look...before it was wrapped....?
Awesome gift....and yeah, Acid is great.
It's in the works partner, but we must limp along with what I have for the time being (or at least until March after the baby is...
Well, went out last weekend for a midnight run and realized that the plotter stopped working as soon as we left the harbor. Now it freezes on...
Clean work. I gotta ask, what's the Rubatex for?
Are there any current manufactures that offer up-locking trigger seats similar to what's found on the Shimano crucial and teramar rods? These...
Clean as always.
What guides are on the 10-30lb rod?
Your builds are always ultra clean and very consistant.
Thanks Alex. Keep me in mind.
Alex, cash offers???
Now that is a rainbow bend.
Sick lil whip for sure!
Get him hooked on a spottie, would be a blast on that rod.
Thanks Jeremy! I got it 4 times, and read it 4 times. Very helpful.
I'll be building one soon as the inshore bite has gone a bit deeper and the...
Also searched on the blank, awsome ratings!
Have you tried working oversized swimbaits with these blanks?
What's still available?
It may be a CB80H. Does it have a moderate fast action?
Nacho, let me know when you plan to go hit the green bass. If it's local, we can tandem boat.
Frank, 59th minute change of plans. I even spent 15 hours fishing the wall last weekend planning for yesterday. I'm totaly bummed I didn't make...
Quick question, I'm building an Inshore/Calico spinning rod, can the Ci4 handle the rigors of inshore salt fishing? or should I be looking at the...
Can someone post top bag weight results?
That's an awesome first build!
Found it on craiglist in Orange county. Gentleman was asking $170, but said if I took the the drive (45mins for me) he would do it for $140, so I...
Ended up buying a mint TE 50GT for $140. Paired it with a Phenix UMBX 700l.
I can't seem to get mine dialed in. Are all your brakes closed?
I need to take a trip down south and enjoy what SD has to offer.
Hey Frank! how you been? For some reason, I can't seem to get any of my Lews to toss light baits (less than 3/8). I've been real tempted to invest...
Looking for advise on a light bait throwing baitcaster. 1/8-1/2 lures is what I'm planning on throwing with this set-up.
Any suggestions are...
Lovin' the tiger colors!
Wall was the norm, although last Saturday at grey light the southern most point was stellar for about an hour of non-stop 2-3lbers with the...
Thanks, I'll take all the luck I can get.
Thats not me. Funny tho!
Well, few weeks ago my partner and I were on our way back into Anaheim Bay from a midnight LB Wall session. It was about 9am when we arrived to...
Dammit Jimmy!Lovin' the style!
I think you have produced some of the (if not the best) looking murdered rods ever. Clean lines and a touch of...
I own an Ardent Inshore Pro, and unfortunately, it does not compare to a Curado or Revo (or Lews for that matter). Spool release is sloppy, spool...
If your asking about the 5.4:1 ratio, I have that in TS1S model and absolutely love it! Pulled many fish from deep with it. I also reserve it for...
Those at DVL or even The Wood!! Striper frenzy!

C-Rig grubs or camo worms?
Advise on productive L.A. beaches near 10 fwy. Looking for a quick get away spot I can hit before/after work.
Tuff to choose just one rod to cover all three species, but the 707h will get you where you wanna go.
I'm not sure what "Internet scouting" is?
EDIT: got it?
Being that you have been a member since 09, and have contributed heavily to this site,...
Thanks for your input, although not very constructive, I'll take it with a grain of salt.
My question wasn't "I don't want to hunt, lead me to...
Two questions regarding Newport Harbor.
#1.Where to launch that will put us close to question #2?
#2. Productive areas for Spottie fishing?...
In my observations, it DOES slow down during the hot, high sun days. We usually hit the wall in the early evening into night, or night into grey...
The Wall: For me, is hit and miss, but I do fish it hard 4-5hrs a week. My routine.
Start at Queens Gate, inside, south (towards to bait barge)...
I own or have fished all the major brands, and my Lews have never let me down. My Lews tourney Speed Spool has been salt abused since...
There is nothing like getting into a good plastic bite.
There is a HUGE difference. Try running a crank with a 7:1 ratio. You'll feel it.
I do mostly salty bass fishin and always have a wide ratio...
Where do you come up with all these Shikari blanks?
Nice boat brah!
Good read as always.
Deckers boat is sick!
Damn low lifes. Was it loaded? If so, keep an eye out for market flood of Phenix products here and in other regions. Maybe the shit can be tracked...
What are you guys using to remove small rust stains from your fiberglass/gelgoat?
I've small spots/stains near the cleats and button snaps.
No rod and reel required!
That was fast!
Held a Lexa yesterday and I must say, it does have a nice feel. Handle has a nice balance and it palms easy. I may pick one up for PV this weekend.
Lews, because they're simply amazing.
Over these two, the Revo Inshore takes the cake. Mine is floating somewhere in long beach, so I replaced...
Looks amazing 1st or 101st.
Are you kidding! Pink is the new black! I'd fish it.
Great work Bill. I must go wipe now.
Love it Jimmy!
:smoking33: 2 thumbs ^
Nothing helps wash down a bad day at work like fishing. (maybe sex is better, but, fishing is a close second)
I'll take 1.5 hours of fishing any...
Just to follow up, I pulled a 4.5lb greenie last night with this blank.
I love it for the finesse work.
I like it.
Sick work for not being all that into it.
That's one of my builds. It's X-Flock over graphite arbor shaped to a comfortable diameter.
Damn. Guess I'll keep building rods without grips. :picknose:
I'm goin 2maro.
Thanks 4 posting.
My shaved butt rocks when held firmly against ones chest!
On spinning tackle, I hold the rod in front of the reels mounting leg. Index finger...
What a blast!
So I enjoyed my first bare bones rod so much, that I built a spinner to match. This time I turned the rubber butt down to almost nothing in order...
Very classy looking rod.
BTW: Brasil is beautiful. I have alot of family there. Cheers!:hali_olutta:
In my opinion, out perform both the Revo and Curado. I've had them all and the Lews is my go to!
LOVE IT JIMMY!
Black and never look back.
Polished Butt looks amazing too!
Damn you and your perfect work!
You really crank them out and still keep it as clean as it gets.
Amazing. Love the colors!
Polished Rubber Butt was me. Thanks for the props.. And, you did a great job of it.
By far my favorite bass to hunt!
Nicely done my friend.
The "14" refers to the I.D. of the seat. Best thing to do is purchase your blank and measure blank diameter in the area your seat will mount. If...
Three colors/patterns to choose from.
AcidRod... I like to walk in and touch things before I buy them.
Ebay... Because sometimes there's weird stuff to be had.
Price on the reels?
I'll keep it mind. Thanks Jimmy.
Bump for a sweet rod. Willing to trade for blanks.
Looking for bass blanks in the 6'-6"+...
Thanks to all who have replied.
So how are the paddles done?
After I lost a rod/reel during a cast, I was going to try something like this.
Stainless wire (thick lure wire) set in epoxy thru the butt into...
Pride in work! Looks amazing.
Lovin' the colors.
Nacho you Da Man!
Get well Colleen.
Puttin' the Perlas to work!

Just downloaded the 2012 Fuji guide spacing chart with includes New Concept and K series layouts. Besides guide size, they layout the same.
Can you gentlemen expand on this 27x/NGC theory?
EDIT: I found the article on 27x placement. Does the guide type matter? I'd like to use the K...
Capt G! Is that really your GTR?:Zombie_Ro
I was able to test drive a US GTR (after proving I could somehow pay for it). What a pure driving...
Good point. I only use braid.
Grant. Being new to this hobby, I'd be lost without all the help the internet has to offer, and not ounce has anyone on BD trashed me for asking...
Stopped in today to grap some more stuff and She looks great. Her spirit would never give hint of being sick.
BTW: Nice to meet you Nacho!
This will be my first spinner and I need a little help on guide layout.
Blank is UC83H. It's stated to be a moderate fast, but it feels a bit...
So I stopped by Acid and picked up a power mixer.
What a joy. Let it do it's thing, dropped the mixing rod in a cup of acetone, done deal.
Very clean, straight forward work. The epoxy is flawless.
Thanks big Dawg!
I've seen/heard of the electric mixers, are they worth it?
I just about went into panic mode last night with heat and razors...
I may have had a bad mix ratio, but it's been 48hrs and the final coat (3 total) is still tacky.
What's the cause? Too much resin or too much...
Yes. It assumes even taper. I use this as a ball park when buying checks.
It will at least clarify that area of blank is still a tad over 1".
Bad ass tatts bro!
1.21" butt and .15625" tip delta is 1.05375" divided by 96 = .010977" per inch of travel up or down the rod.
If your placing...
2M79XXXHF St. Croix rated to 30oz.
Way to gettum' guys!
I need to take the 2 hour drive south and enjoy some SD fishing.
Hang tuff Colleen!
Hopefully this will be the end to a chapter you'll never read again!
Best to both of you. See you soon.
Fantastic duplication Bill!
Props to the owner for knowing what he wants and how to get it.
St. Croix still available. I'd rather not ship it due to costs.
Will trade for blanks or rod building materials/parts.
Is it 92mm long handle?
Just wondering, what's a 24oz bait look like?
Thanks for all the kind remarks gentlemen!
Great Info guys!
Nice. Very Nice.
Luvin the grip shapes!
I've tried it.... Was broken off every time.
7' ML spinner with 6lb Sniper. (yeah..my freshwater drop) Used a Nervous Rex in black/silver color....
Congrats on a great wife and kind gift.
Rod #4. This one's for me and my D22's/Lite Swimbaits. "Murdered Out" as all the teens say. I was going for extreme simple and light weight....
Bringing this back up. Was browsing AcidRod and saw these.
Any new stories/techniques for these guides? Thinking about usung them on a heavy...
Oh boy. Carefull, it gets addicting!
Nice first rod. Got any close up pics?
I like your style Oscar. Looks sleek!
Drop shot rig? What guides?
Top. Make Offers.
Just hit me up.
Your grip work is off the hook!
Do you cut, glue, shape them for the different patterns/inlays?
You betcha. I just have to find you a pink swimbait blank.
Here's mine. Not very clean, but it triples as a metal fab shop, rod shop, wood shop.
Well, just finished rod #3 and things are getting easier rod by rod. Lots of you have been very kind in lending knowledge, and it's...
Thanks all for the kind remarks!
I have the Crucial and the St. Croix still available.
Luvin' the gofher guts!
Sorry. Not planning on going south any time soon.
These are taking up valuable room on my rack. Lets move them.
I believe the simple green acts as a lubricating agent so not to mar, burn, or scratch the rubber during the turning. Simple green had a softening...
It started just like the one above it. Rubber.
Decided to pass this along. I searched prior to trying to turn my own rubber butt shapes and couldn't find much but I'm sure it's been done....
I'll see you Friday for the Zillion!
Make offers on crucial and st. Croix.
Just FYI: I lost my Inshore and replaced it with a Winch. Same reel different ratio, and it's on sale at TW.
Just an idea.
Sent you another PM. I can pick it up today cash ready.
Hit me up.
Any time you can get your wife to be pro-active...it's a good thing.
HH can produce when conditions are rite.
Did you stay with light colors all night?
65lb braid..40lb leader.. Locked drag.
What's for sale?
Got pics of the Zillion & Chronarch?
Rithy- Thank you for doing what many cannot.
As for Doc's heart, amazing!
United Composites. Worth every penny!
Bump. Price Drop.
Will trade for blanks
Nice mix up on the grips. Looks great!
Reel looks nice on the seat too.
Nice. Love the choice of color combos.
Currently 2 others ahead of you. I'll let you know should they not be interested.

JIGGING not jogging..is this technique usable ib SoCal?
Looks like a blast!
Any good reason for reversing the stripper guide on an acid wrap? (placing the bracing legs towards the tip)
It looks abnormal, but interesting.
Nice. Make sure you post up your inshore build. I enjoy different views on what an "inshore" rod should be.
Making memories is priceless. Great job Dad.
Way to go lil'man!
This is coming from a total newb so take it with a grain of salt...But I learned the hard way. And with tips from [email protected] and SaltyDawg and a...
That takes class on both sides, both to apologize & accept the apology.
Cooler heads prevail.
I can't get enough. I've pretty much sold off my factory wrapped rods and am in the process of replacing them.
BTW: I love the reel. Yanked a...
Thanks Mark. Makes absolute sense. I'll go clockwise and off-set the stripper counter-clockwise of zero so the inside edge of ring becomes zero....
Q#1-I'm interested in trying a spiral wrap on my current build. It's a Jaws 8' 10-20lb. It'll be used for inshore bass and green bass. Is it worth...
Yep, they work. Both my fishing partner and I use or have used them. I purchased a 5 wire Yumbrella. I fish 2 4" baits on the bottom wires, 1 5"...
When I was looking for my boat, the gulf coast also seemed to have nice used bay boats, just make sure it's post Katrina or at least hire a third...
Whatcha got on the wrapper?
Wow. Craftsmanship at it's finest. Now if I could only get my 4th grader to turn out work like that I'd be in business.
They have all color camos, but I was looking for red and black only and couldn't find it.
Jimmy- Have you tried the local Pac Bay dealers? I searched for a while looking for red/black camo colors and found that "Pac Bay Kamo" is the...
Alps 316 Medium or Lites depending on your rod rating. Not expensive, can get them in single foot, 3 color options, and they work great with braid.
Tried it and the graphite is so thin, it exploded.
Blank OD is ~15mm and graphite OD is ~23mm so it's pretty thin.
I think now I've got it....
I own a 22' bay boat (Striper 22 Bay Boat,Ranger now builds on this hull) and absolutely love the ability to handle salt and freshwater. It can...
Alright, so I'm trying shrink over shaped graphite and I'm having a difficult time getting perfect end cuts. I do plan to use trim checks to...
Done and ready for tomorrow. We're taking my father-in-law fishing and he'll be using his new rod, just doesn't know it yet.
Welcome to your next addiction!
I just started wrapping my self and am currently working on my second rod. I bought the starter kit at Acid and...
:DOh snap! (an axle):D
Are you against flocking it? I'm assuming that would be the quick cure.
Will do. Thanks big Dawg.
The band on the opposite side of the guide?
Just haven't gotten that far. It takes me a couple tries to get the trim lined up without overlap....
Well, since having the day off, I decided it was a good time to try my second rod build. This will be a gift for my Father-in-Law, Steve (Love you...
Hope those are toy axles with a stretched wheel base and evil twins.
Another for the beautiful grips!!
Awesome work.! Top notch craftsmanship.
So i've searched without results. I was hoping some of you could post photos of your home built or partly home built lathes. In addition, maybe a...
Thanks Jimmy for the flawless exchange! Nice to meet honest peeps.
Indeed. I think this was just an "ice breaker". The more time I spend reading, observing and noting different styles/techniques the craving to...
Which handle is longer?
The more I read, the more I itch for building.
You're right Jimmy, it's almost as addicting as fishing.
Thanks for sharing.
Nice. Love how you set it up with a long handle.
I believe I've seen you use the Alps seat on other rods. How do you like it?
Would you happen to have a 300E handle in exchange?
Yes please. I already own the Speed Spool in 5:1 and it's been my "never let me down reel" when my Ardent Inshore Pro took a shit.
I will gladly...
Gone. Got exactly what I was looking for. Thanks all.
Done and ready for Friday.
The most difficult step (to me) was the epoxy. It seemed as if I was trying to hard to gain the perfect shape. I...
You can keep in exchange for some plastics.
Decided to try building my own rods, have to say it's a blast. As of now, I'm building just to suit my needs. I really like long narrow handles...
Thanks for your kind words of wisdom. No cool intended, and you're right....there is no reason for the rig to fly out of my hands. But what the...
In our prayers.
Thanks for the heads-up, see you Thursday Mark.
Well, it was grey-light and I'd been on the water since midnight. I got lonely and the aluminum reel set was slick.
To bad it's me :rofl:
Lost my Revo Inshore and Cedros rod. Damn newb!
Otherwise and good day.
Will consider trade for a good baitcaster or power rod wrapper.
Lemme know whatcha got.

Figured it would make more sense to post it here.
I'm looking for a good used machine, something beginner friendly that won't break the bank....
Is $150 too much?
Cool bro. Thanks. Maybe a diver someday will retrieve my set-up.
I hope you guys ended up having a stellar day. We should meet up sometime for...
MH Fast or XFast.
I pitch the wall for hours with a Cashion micro guide 7'6" pitchin' stick. It's a Heavy/Fast.
I really like the part were the short sexy guy is pitching at the wall.:drool:
When and where will you guys be? El Compadre and I will be in my 22' sea foam green bay boat and we'll be around the wall by noon or 1pm.
Somebody take this thing. It's a smokin' deal.
I will as soon as my Phenix sells.
Split grip.. I'll post pics later tonight.
It's one of my fav's, but I have my eye on a custom wrap- so this one has to go.
SOLD.. Thanks Charlie.

How are you rigging the big MC's?
Damn! High quality fish.
I'm gonna have to pay someone to show me the ropes. Biggest I've ever landed was 2.5lbs.
So we're planning on trying some freshwater bass fishin' at my local lakes (Silverwood,Skinner,Perris,Elsinore,DVL etc.).
Need advise on bait...
It's still better than a day at work!
What a great time. It was our first tourney and won't be the last. Although we came in with a 12lb bag, we learned alot along the way.
Phenix rods are amazing! I have the PSW760L for medium swimbaits up to 5" with a 1oz head and the PSW867ML for anything bigger. The Phenix loads...
