One of my favorites !
The smaller Black Seabass are really good when served with the Snowy Plovers .
I think my favorite is raw Albacore.
They serve the Yellowtail Collar as an appetizer at my favorite Sushi restaurant, so good !
I guess I am bored and forgetful
No real budget maybe 65lb braid ? Yellowtail. Tuna not to big Jig up to 250 gram
This might be a little rarer 11 White Sea Bass on the Phenix out of Port San Luis.
What would be your first choice of reels for this rod ?
I ate a small amount of Escolar at a Sushi restaurant without getting the shits, but I don’t think I could have eaten any more safely .

Here’s one on A 400D they are nice .
I put this Jigging World handle on one of mine . I do not have the reel anymore, but the handle was very nice and preformed great .
Very nice !
Funny this is exactly what I do with mine .
Will this handle fit the Komodo 463 P ?
The Endeavor has a galley .
Google Virg’s Landing and Morro Landing they both have websites with fish counts and schedules .
It should all 300 yards of the 65lb Maxcuatro I think I put 450 yards of 50lb Maxcuatro on my Mak 8ii
Under Mexico judicial system you are guilty until proven innocent ! Possession of firearms are illegal in Mexico unless you are privileged .
I would also try the Chicken salad sandwiches at the ranch side store .
Try tossing a Lucky Craft 110 in surf they are good for Perch and Halibut .
Yes those were the good old days when we put the boat in the water we were already where we wanted to fish or very close to it .
I never go anywhere without one of these, but I don’t know if you can get on Rapala web site .
Thank you for all the useful information BDers .

What does getting poached mean in reference to a WTB post ? I have heard it before but not clear what it means .
This is what I settled on . Mak 8ii SEA 400 yards 50lb Maxcuatro with about 8ft 40lb Topknot fluorocarbon leader .
Check out the Uplula magazine loader they work great
The trigger will get better the more you shoot it . Dry fire it helps also . It will be a good carry piece .

The reason I asked was because I was looking at used to buy or possible trade . Now if I do get one I think I am going to stick to new .
If you don’t mind what reel do you have on your 5’6” Phenix ?
I hope you meant Sandbass ?

The coolest little boat ever !
I’m going to try and trade my points in for a new rod holder .
What a great day on the water . Boys look like they had a blast !
I don’t need no stinking points ! I do however want as many trophies as I can get .
Well there goes your points down the drain !
I bought 10 fast shipping good seller . At this price I was able to give some away to fishing buddys
Yes I am interested in all jigging what would the heavy knife jigging target ? Bottom fish Yellowtail ?
Ok I have this Phenix Megalodon that I traded for and have had no use for so far . I have tried to sell it but have had no takers . I fish from my...
Nice work does not look like a beginner

No but you can buy after market gears from Pro Challenge
This light weight Columbia works well for me when I am layering .
That looks like some hardcore fishing
How crazy would it be to put a Mak 8ii on the B-581H3R ? ( because I already have the Mak )
She is sexy
Very nice I like it a lot !
Hell of a beautiful boat ! Congratulations !
Yes that is what I am talking about when did they make that change ? Can the older ones be updated ? What is the cost ? Thanks for the help
i read on BD somewhere that the ratchet system on the Boss Valiant had been improved / updated if so when did this take place ? How long ago ? TIA
You set up looks really well done ! I thought about this for my boat but I am not as handy as you are . We troll for Halibut so I added this...

Yes but make them bigger and cover the whole horizon ! I love cleaning the oil off the bottom of my boat when I get back from a day on the water !
What model are you looking title says 400a then it says 400pg I am not sure what model that is ?
I ordered mine from Scott’s Bait and Tackle they were great to deal with and are familiar with the parts for this swap
I was trying to keep it quiet I don’t want everyone to start hoarding them !
Thanks for the info I already use Maxcuatro on some of my smaller reels and really like it . I will look into the Yozuri topknot .

What level wind reel are you using ?
Not sure what reel is the best but I would definitely pick Penn Torque over the Avets .
I have the same rod on the way and have not decided yet what I am going to match it up with .
Maybe one of the single speeds that I already have...
You cannot do that ! Toto says that you have to...........
The B-581H3R I would like to see the videos

The only time I have fished heavier than 40-50# is when we troll for Thresher shark with 100# mono
Looks like a bunch of fun congrats !
Happy Birthday ! I just turned 68 myself November 17 68 is the new 40 .

Congratulations on a beautiful boat !
Story’s like this bring tears to my eyes .
They are my favorite eating bottom fish .
This kind of story reminds me of how many things can go wrong in secession . So I will double check all my emergency equipment . Glad you are all...
great pics thanks for sharing
I wonder if the fish would go for it prepared as Calamari ? I would !
The Kraken looks like a large bait I guess for big fish .
I am going to call them and see if they ship
So can you use your slow pitch rods as live bait and dropper loop as well as jigging ?
Thanks for this clarification I was thinking is was the bait Squid they bleached so I will stay away from the Squid for human consumption
Mine is 2,600 dry but I think that crane had been upgraded to more than 3,000
Wow I hope so then we could sling boat there and already be where we want fish !
Here is a jigging rod that I traded for it is new never been fished and I have no real use for it !
It is a very stiff rod not for slow pitch I’m...
Yea after all the info on BD and the goggle searches I am going to try the Black Hole B-581H3R
