Worth it on this occasion to make sure my friend got his first yellowtail.
Thanks for the info

Aren’t the dorado sliders very hard to find?
I’ve been seeing a lot more people throwing stickbaits on the tuna when they’re on top. Any advice on brand, size, and retrieval to get bit. Also...
Wish you were closer
Will you split and if so, how much for the fathom?
Nope, the ones getting bit had lighter setups.
[ATTACH] Also don’t over dress the FF on this grade of fish, let it do it’s thing.
Did they tell you how deep to fish the flat fall?
They were busy on the kite so had to fish it blind. Casted 400 ft down wind and started...
Thanks for the report
Was this Gavin H. from the Pac Queen?
Yes but I used if for 3-4 minutes per fish, made the mistake of going to low too soon on the third fish which came to the surface and shook the...
Not so big, 70 and 72 dressed and bled on the processor scale.
Yes sinker fish
All jigs where sunk out and fished deep.
Fished the Liberty on Friday with 34 other ppl. Bluefin where 60-80, one straggler at 30lbs. It was about 3 hr boat ride until we started fishing,...
Look up YouTube vids, it looks like WSB with halibut and yellowtail as bycatch.... Sounds like a boring trip, you should sell your spot to me.
I’ve used the 15h with 20lb leader on an okuma pch801MH for BFT to 35 lbs.
TN 12A, only if you have reel dead.
Sorry, it’s sold
Fisherman’s access, or fisherman’s landing
Is the handle swap for the Avet 30 a plug and play or do you have to modify it?
Thanks for the report!
Ok will do
You should add that the custom is by Infinity Structures, might bring more attention.
Carlsbad is 45 min to an hr north. I’m open to offers
My #50 is tac12ii with 70 predator
I thought it was just a temporary glitch... that really sucks.
It’s so you can connect directly to a jig or plug. Like if you wanted to replace the treble on a surface iron to a single or if you want to...

I have a used Talica 16ii, no line, good condition for 375, located in San Diego.
Where are you located, I have one, located in SD.
What lb test is the metered line one braid?
Yeah I ended up with Mex limits on the trip. I was also using the JRI 66 and it seemed to be working well in the conditions.
The talent was definitely above average on the boat. It was snotty conditions and with multiples hookups people were pretty good at controlling...
I believe they had a 50ld2 in silver as well
Can’t wait for this to come out.
I have been itching to go fishing, thought I’d make the rockfish opener this past weekend but the weather didn’t cooperative. I hit up San Diego...
How much to buy?
I’ll take it if deal falls though and you’re willing to ship.
Looks closer to a 15H size, gearing is slower than the 15, and drag should be higher.
Komodo 364 is the most durable low profile I’ve fished.
Did you end up finding a 25n?
What handle is that?
It was probably wise to fish heavier line just incase the bigger models ever showed up.
You were fire the whole trip. Guys who started off hot the first day didn’t catch anything the second day and vise versa, nice fishing with you man.
Boarded the Sea Adventure 80 for a 2.5, leaving 11/9 but fishing two days 11/11-11/12 on the banks, Cortez and Tanner. Both days we had a plunker...
I just hope the bite lasts through the weekend, haven’t had the chance to get out in a while.
Great trip and report, always love the videos.
If you’re looking to bottom fish, the saltiga with the spool lock is pretty nice for the application. Also the new Torium PGA has 30+ lbs of drag...
If it’s mainly to bottom fish, maybe a lever drag would work better.
15 is pretty standard on a pick bite.
Last trip my buddy was on, the skippies were eating the popper. My last trip only yft were eating it, it changes everyday but a popper fish is...
[ATTACH] Halco 135
WTG, killing them as usual. Congrats on the new ride!
I didn’t get to experiment with colors or sizes, I was using the blue 100g coltsniper.
Def next time, didn’t even think of that!
I’ll keep that in mind next time, but I don’t know if they have a lot of barbless options in the styles of hooks I’m using.
My heaviest setup had a MH rating.
All the usual boats were booked up for the week, so I made a last minute call to fish with a friend on the Pride. It was a limited load,14 people,...

3 out of the 5 fish came off flouro, 15-20#.
The entire boat got 5 that day....
Sounds right on the line and the rod setup as well. I would put the 20A on a jigstick and fish a 16A on the 838mh. I’ve fished the 14A on a 760 ml...
Trinidad or Trinidad A?
Adjust the spool speed
What website are you using for this information?
Thanks for the details in the write up!
Just go out with the gear you have. My friend went out on the pac Queen last week. The boat ended up having boat rods with mak20 he could use.
How much for the Komodo? I pmd you, don’t know if you received it, pm me back with specs on reel and pictures.
Nice fishing with you again, and congrats on the JP, 3 in a row is hard.
The JRI 3 has a wider kick and can be fished slower than the JRI 7s. The fish probably didn’t commit to the 7 because when you paused it you lost...
Maybe that Sabre would rather be used as a jigstick instead of a rockfishing rod:-)
What type of stickbait?
If you find the 9ft heavy in the Proteus, it’ll probably we a stellar combination, it just might be hard sourcing one.
How much for the OCT and killer jigs?
Great video and report!
Good to know
That’s a Tranx done right.
Just going back stock will probably be cheaper than sourcing a Daiwa ASC1 clamp.
Did any of you guys try using anchovy?
Thanks, I have found that a single beefed up hook like a 9-0 Jobu will interfere with the action and I like the idea of marlin rigging it, but...
What has been your experience rigging that way?
Any upgrades to drag on the tibbed Newell?
I wish they would do this to ppl stealing reels on boats.
Columbia PFG, the ones with a hood, but just a warning their sizes run big.
That picture makes my tuna look respectable, #32. LOLLOLLOL
Do you have the original handle as well?
It looks like most of the fish is within the 3/4 range, I don’t see any upside to sleeping on a bunk if there isn’t a grey light bite on the FF...
I told you to ditch the Lexa and go with the saltiga 15, looks like it would have been perfect on this trip.
It looks like the rope section that holds the lid opened at a 90 degree snapped and needs to be placed, looks like an easy DIY fix.
Is this a size 15H?
Yeah, I’m in Apple Valley. It was a scratch bite at the end of the year, right?
I told those guys they could get a plastic bag from Point Loma for 4 dollars. I hope they listened LOLLOLLOL
We went all over but caught 57 miles south.
Try leaving work early on a Friday to catch a boat, and something at work will mess it up. I got a late start and a long ways to drive down to San...
Looks like a typo on the Tranx, given the price and picture??
The only one complaint about the reel is the handle feels awkward.
Great report, and great intel. Thanks for posting.
Whoever bought this, if you want to sell the extra knob, LMK.
I’ll take it if the deal falls through.
Glad you got your price
Wanted, the old Avet MXJ with the metal Tbar handle. Let me know what you have through pictures and how much you want for it, must be willing to...
Willing to separate?

How much for the rod?
Still available, PM sent.
Found, please delete.
Like the title says want to buy a clamp new or used, pm with price and condition. Must be willing to ship and accept PayPal.
Just out of curiosity is that lever on the right side a spool lock?
Cut from top or bottom?
The rig looks cool, how did you have the willow blade set up?
Looks like a Stella knob on a Tranx 500 or Trinidad arm

You see a couple torque 25ns as well
No way it’s conventional, guides are not right.
The psw760h is probably a little heavy for the Saragossa 8k and for what you’re targeting. Also you’re sacrificing a lot of casting distance with...
Why type of crip is that, looks extra long and sturdy.

Exactly. Especially because I left a freshly wrapped T220 at home :hali_ruahahaha:

They eat seals, the pesks we deal with are sea lions. But wouldn't mind thinning them out a bit at the islands.
How long did it take you guys to install new kit?
Looks like the Malihini, Liberty and Prowler got into the big boys today, definitely go out if you can.

I didn't say I wanted to go out in these conditions, just that the boat hasn't made the decision to cancel yet.
The Liberty said they'd make their final call tomorrow morning to go or cancel
Sorry guys I bought both, and James was very pleasant to work with.
Did you have any problem getting to the bottom with 160 g?

I was using it to throw bait and a popper last time I was out on the water, mainly for yellowtail and bonito.
What rod do you guys fish on the 400d?

Yes, they have a live spindle which before you put into freespool you have to release the tension by thumbing the spool forward.
