Price on gloomis?
price dropped, just need to clear my rack so I can buy more rods.
Lots of interest only 1 committed.
Anyone had the chance to pull on the new 2019 Shimano Terez? Both conventional and Rail rods?
Looks light, thin and rated for braid....
I need to clear out my garage a bit.

looking for a lighter rod for kids to use, something not too fast action.
Phenix bd 700m or other suggestions?
Light in weight is key.
Yes we saw Grande and San Diego on the north side of the island.
Seals were insane that day, we had to leave the area many times to ditch them....
they were hungry, eating everything we had.
After many reports from fellow BDers and received many advice from you all, our private boating adventure finally paid off on Sunday 8/4....
I just order one WINN version too, I didn't know the internals were the old grey ones not the new blue/yellow ones?!

great reading, following your adventure. As I keep reading your stories, I opened another window and purchased those amazon products too....
I use the Kureha Seaguar Flourocarbon, they cost less and you get a larger spool. #6-#14 for different pound (#6 is 20 or 25#, #14 is...
Thanks for the report! Going out tomorrow and this is helpful!
can you show me a picture of this TA clip connection?
lol great deal, that was fast.

I have 6-7 poppers, dorado sliders that need to rig up with large single hooks.
Looking for 15 or so single hooks.

Awesome, thanks for the video!
nice report, nice boat!
Terminator is not a 30# rod... it feels 50#.
I just got mine 2 weeks ago, haven’t had a chance to use it but the initial feeling is same. I have the Us76 predator too and it seem stiffer and...
question about loud music on private boats, does it affect the fishing?
That new gunmetal is :appl::appl:
Anyone know if they will make a xxxh model?
how come this gunmetal looks much better than the other ones? the others have a greenish tint.
thanks for the detailed and entertaining report!
thanks for the info, I picked up a 740xxxh a month ago for 100#, I guess i'll need to test it like you to be sure.
If slow trolling for yellows, how far from island should I be trolling? Does depth come into play?
Curious to why you choose 15t to go with this rod?
looking for new style Saltiga 35/40 or Trinidad 20
Please pm me, thanks!!
Looking for a 40# reel to go with UC 8’ terminator. Already have tranx.
Prefer Trinidad, talica, Saltiga, or Tesoro (10 or 12?).
any picture of how this coltsniper is rigged?
Looking for a 80# reel, prefer Mak16 or Talica20/25.
Please pm me if you have one for sale.
nice, I grew up in walnut too since 88-98 then move back again in 2010. keep in touch!
that's amazing for her to land a fish almost her size! I'm sure that moment is something you'll never forget. I hope I get a chance to do that...
hi leonard, pm you , please let me know if I got a shot at the mak20. thanks!
pm sent for the mak!
I was thinking since I have Predator 76 as well that I should skip the Raptor thus my question to what people use these rods for....
Any more on the raptor vs predator? :)
Would you part the set? Interested in talica
I’ll take the talica10ii
Probably live bait.
What are you using the raptor for vs predator? I would use heavier like viper if I’m fishing flatfalls.
similar line ratings.
Anyone with experience with these two rods can comment on difference of these rods? Applications, feel, etc.
adding the xxh to this thread.
if you dont mind me asking, what rod are you pairing those blue maks on? seems like you have a very nice setup in mind.
can someone help explain the rating of RUS vs US? Why are the blank ratings so different from their rods?
for example, RUS76 Predator is 50-80 rod...
I used the proteus 7’xxh last year with Mak 20, handles <100# bft fine. Felt under powered against 150+. I got a PCH74xxxh 80-130 because the...
any updates on these GP rods?
yes I saw the blank at 25-40 but the rods are in 7'6" only...I want a 8'.
I use my monster for 40#... just feel like there's a gap at 30#.
it seems like a lot of the popular UC rods are 40#+, what would you recommend for a 30# rod?
I have a UC Mega US80 but I feel that's not heavy...
Best of luck to you Cory! thank you for all your advice to me and hope to get to fish with you soon!
can't find it here in US...
I tried looking online for CRC gel, so many selection, can you tell me which specifically?
going to your house for sashimi now!

Any more updates? This thread got buried by the 2010 posts from 2am....
Wonder if it’s Front or back of cat?
Maybe a typo but 3/4 day Native Sun got 92 Yellowfins? It might just be Yellowtails but still amazing.
Anyone know where they were fishing or if...
2nd if this falls through, thanks.
which reel are you putting on the 2XH?
I can't remember really how much for the spool. it isn't more than typical powerpro braids.
Most tackle shops should carry that braid, it’s yellow and orange.
I haven’t had the chance to pull on any bft yet with that PCH rod, but it’s...
I have mine loaded with Phenix braid 100# it’s 50’ per color change so easier for fishing flat falls. The UC viper is a great option but if you...

That’s awesome! Always great to get some at crunch time!
Andros 12sii is not a bad choice
sharks didn't come by during those 11 hour of bloodbath?

How does the new saltiga star compare with these 2 reels?
When are they coming out?
really tempted to try this rod, please pm me if you have one for sale.
Let me know if you want to sell your mak20 :)
Can you elaborate on the difference between Terminator and Tilefish which rates as 30-60 fast action?
**sorry through search I...
Can you elaborate on the difference between the Terminator and the Tilefish? Seem to be covering 30-60 fast action.
great read, thank you for the amazing narrative!
thanks, these are definitely good points from a different angle.
Thank you this is great breakdown!
the 3 days I've seen are usually back same time as 2.5 days in AM but takes off earlier day 1 from noon.

Thank you for the detail explanation, that’s great news for me to fish Rosa or Nicholas!

Got a question regarding the rating for 2 different rods to go with my Mak20 (100# braid).
Daiwa Proteus 70XXHF 40 - 60 (80-120 BRAID)...
Wow, they cost much more than Maine lobster...
Is there a closer spot in Long Beach? I live in Los Angeles.
Hope I’m not violating anything.
I went hooping with a few friends last week, Brought a few home and the wife loved the spiny lobster...
you went fishing. most of us are stuck in office reading your post. sounds like a fun day!
Look at the Daiwa Proteus Rods, good deal.

Nothing major like...
for the amount you want to spend, he can go on newish boats maintained by the club.
I recommend you take him to listen to "The freedom boat club". that might work for him.
I always thought the 10 would hold as much as a trini 20, doesn't it weight more than trini 16?
I had a great experience on the New Lo-An last trip, can't compare to the video but definitely the best I've had this year.
Heading down next weekend, looking for a charter.
Saw some good reports of yt, bonitos, and even some yft!
How big are them yt?
If I know what to do with a boat, I be all over this....
how was your trip on the Islander?!
Don't take solo trips, take me!
Thanks for the report!
Lol great report!
How many days was the trip you went on for the bft?
Awesome 16 for 19!
Yes, they filleted the Opah for the customer. I got a taste, it was very good.
I keep hearing about the 3 different types of meat, you can see...
I don't normally post a fishing report but with what happened on our trip, it would be good to share with the community on what happened a regular...
The 35n-SJ doesn't have clicker either it's got spool lock for jigging. Lol.
I borrowed a saltiga 15h to go with the proteus 76mh.
My brother lend me a proteus 76mh, maybe I should use that with the saltiga or stick with monster ?
thanks, i'm not looking to buy another rod, just trying to piece together a set for my trip out tomorrow.
Have andros 5aii and gloomis 25-40 for 30# live bait setup.
Looking to have a back up 30# live bait setup.
Which would you use?
Sorry to hear.
And sorry to ask:
Do you know what they are using for the yft?
Pretty cool last picture.
What rod did you use?
Which market is this...
Just want to know what has been working for the dorados that the SD boats been on.
Going out next week and want to prep accordingly....
Thanks for the report, we're going on the New Lo An on 8/10, hoping the bite remains!
Take good care, health and family first!
Thanks for the report, we're heading out on New Lo-an in aug so your time is timely and well documented. Great reference for us!
That's just awesome pops!
thanks for the detailed and great insights!
I've booked the new loann, excited!
Should I bring a heavier rod in case?
I know this topic has been discussed before but in different combination.
Looking to go with 6 of my friends out of SD on 8/10 fish...
What rods would you pair your 10s or 12s?
Incredible feat! I can't even sit on a boat for 15.5 hours....
amazing report and those sashimi toro pics are insane!
You have a pimp boat!
Thanks for the amazing report !
Thanks for the report!
Awesome report!! What a great way to spend some quality time with the kid.
Thanks for the epic report!
How does the 330 express compare to the 30'?
Seriously....how do you use 7 setups on a half day?
Wow those are works of art!
Very solid reel, the 5.1 ratio gives good torque.
Awesome report, thanks!
Awesome thanks for sharing!
Heck of a day!
Please post a report after this weekend! I can't this weekend but will be interested in your future availabilities!
Good luck all!
I set up very similar to this. Same open water bag. With the difference that I swapped out 2 of the 2" boxes for 1 4" box. Total of 4 trays...
Redeemed and then some!
Thanks for the report!
Yummy seems to be working! Other report used it too right?
Thanks for the report!
Thanks for the report! Sounds like a great trip regardless of the count!
I really like the new saltiga star drag reels. I have both 15h and 35-sj.
The 15 is small but very well made, rigid construction, and machinery...
Looks like they are in the teramar proteus class, anyone tried to compare?
These trips are amazing!
Thanks for sharing!
How do the pch compare to the SCT rods they have?
That's quality time spent! Thanks for the report!
caught on bait?
so on a 15 day trip, more than half is spent travelling?
When's the release?
Similar application with reduced weight? Very nice!
that's a sick combo! What's coming that you need to get rid of this?
Is that a swivel in front of the jig?
Great job getting some great father and son time on the ocean!
How's your experience with the 869xh?
4th I guess for saltiga lol
Thanks for the update, heading out Friday with Fortune and wanted to see where they are heading.
Hope you get better!
Any update on this?
Those blue flooring and lights looks really good! Grats again!
What rod was the trini DC paired with?
Thank Scott, great meeting you!
I use this, good rule of thumb.
Whatever stock size treble goes on it, replacing it with single hook.
Awesome, thanks for the report!
Went with this instead for now
Jbraid diameter per website
Boat braid Daiwa
Maxcuatro diameter per website
I'm not 100% certain but I have always thought Daiwa boat braid is the skinniest of the Daiwa line.
awesome fish, let me know whenever you're heading out again! :D
Great report thanks!
What rod did you use?
Thanks for the report!
Which hook should I put?
6/0 on red and 4/0 on blue- both aki twist
8/0 Aki twist on red and 7/0 aki...
I'm with you, I put these on and took them off
Can't see the picture.
So ring hook with split ring? That's a lot of rings , lol.
What lines do you have on the reel?
wow...i think i need to swap out my hooks.
wow! 15 days!... one day...
Good luck to you all!
That's what I used but 3/0 size. Really thin.
WHat size hook did you use?
How about a circle hook vs j hook?
Hi Brian, those hooks are very well priced. How are the quality? I'll swing to get some, they look decent.
I really like joes and arima Bob's setup. I'll prob try that.
I put on some owner dancer stinger assist hook 3/0 (prob better for slow pitch...
Look forward to your report!
Try okuma andros 5aii or the accurate valiants.
Different price range but all small and capable.
Awesome setup! Glws!
Interested in silver blue and red tiger, can you pm me your PayPal ?
I tried it on 809xhj, UC US80 monster, and now on Phenix hybrid 869xh. All 3 are great with a little bit of differences.
That's a pimp ride, glws!
ok i'll have to remove it and put it back together lightly then. My biggest concern is the issue of being unable to take them apart.
hello, what's the dimensions? thanks.
I second that!
just want to know if there's any issues if I keep the 2 pc rods together for storage on rod rack and not take them apart?
Will it cause...
Sexy reel, glws!
Sounds like a great time!
how much did the trip run per?
I haven't tried it yet but I hope this can work!
how big was your boat for this overnight?
I know the swimbait is pending but what is the rating on the 711h? I don't see that model on their website.
Maybe 720 would be better for yoyo and dropper. Your call.
saltiga 15? 35? which one?
Way to go! Thanks for the report and I hope to follow up tomorrow!
AWEsome! Great trip!
cant see the rating well, can you give us the model?
..nm I saw it on tag
i'm at their website....how do you get a longer forecast?
My bad for not being clear, leaving from San Pedro Thursday night overnight at catalina to fish Friday. That ride back seems to be what we will face.
That's a concern if fishing sucks, I would lose 2 potential boat sharing patrons! Got to get them hooked!
You're right, it changed again this morning. I'll keep an eye out.
So rule of thumb 15mph wind or less, 12 sec interval or more, height of waves...
Thinking to go 4/14 to Catalina with a couple of friends on a 6 pack charter boat. 2 are new to fishing and want to give them a pleasant...
That's a pretty big reel for slow pitch rod, trini 16n is good size.
I think the Axis 720 or 780H or XH will work for your braid to short leader.
Maybe he is referring to andros 12Nsii in terms of line capacity?
Amazing trip!! Now the three of you will be chasing tuna together! I can't wait till my boys are old enough to fish!
I see a lot of the yellow glow in dark being used.
Please Delete. Thanks!
Please delete. Thanks
60-80# with flat falls. Wow. Don't think most brought something that size..
it definitely doesn't!
awesome, thanks for the report!
50 yt and 1 wsb from yesterday's report, gl jer!
The spools are coming from seaguar as vendor fulfilled by amazon, can it be fake?
Near catalina or ?
where do you see it? their site or fb?
Sea adventure II just came back with 17 bft and 30 yt!
once the filet is sealed in the pack and you throw it in the insolated tote bag you got from Amazon, how do you keep it cool for the...
Thanks Kurt for your awesome product, great quality and too bad i forgot about the other cool colors you had! will order again!
regarding the Us90 monster, what # are you fishing that rod and what oz jigs are you comfortable tossing with that rod?
:beerbang:Here's to another great season! Gl everyone!
Saw it today, anyone know the size of the bft?
Your boat sounds awesome!
Thanks for taking the time to write this up.
sounds like a baitcaster would be used for this?
The size is not bad at all with the 12nsii, looks really good.
wow what a boat!
what's your thought behind using the lever drag reel for jigging? I have an andros too and was debating that as well.
What rod do you pair it with?
Tranx? Have you tried the new saltiga 35HA?
sorry only looking for HG. thanks.
can i tack on this thread with questions on loading the rod?
Do I swing with more speed and power to load a slower action rod vs. a faster rod?...
thank you, this is extremely helpful for me.
So right now with your own boat it's 2x the cost of the club? What's the pro in that? More freedom than freedom club? :)
Thanks Justin, your advice is very helpful!
I always thought you can book back to back to do overnights? Is the HB location unable to do that?
I was in similar dilemma and got both Phenix 809xhj and UC US80 monster to try. End up keeping the monster , it loads better for me.
The 400 is single speed?
Wow that's amazing!!!
jesus, can you take a picture of the reel on the rod? I like to see how it balances.
I put the saltiga 35n-SJ on it. 21 oz reel.
wow, just wow.
They said approximately 8-10 members per boat, but there's only 1 Parker 2 cc boats, rest are not really meant for fishing.
I would definitely...
Glad they are all okay, 3am at night when they started....
Thanks carl, that's good to hear about the members you met have not had too much concern for the availability.
I started this thread hoping a...
Are you in the club?
The concerns I have are availability and current restriction that limits maximum range to Catalina for fishing.
Ya I wondered that too with predator at $320 and blank at $240(8'), while US monster is msrp $359 blank at $182.
Can you elaborate on the wahoo? I've heard this on another occasion.
does anyone have experience with this boat club?
I like the offerings and good for me to determine if i do want to own a boat in the future....
I have an used Lexa 400 for sale $150, that leaves you with $150 for the rod.
Looking for a good condition Tranx 500HG.
Please pm me, thanks!!
Thanks Bill, I'll look into the MXJ raptor!
I'm leaning to the saltiga star 35HA, they look really sturdy but weights more than trini16.
40" makes a lot more sense for a reel that size. That gold color though...
the TRQ25 is 29" per crank, that's pretty low right?
probably star drag over lever for casting.
max 3 days.
no budget really.
I have a reel seat, I'll try the lexa and see how it balances.
Anything bigger you would recommend ?
Looking for suggestion for a reel to pair with UC monster 8', mainly jigs 40#.
I tried my saltiga 35n-sj and andros 5ii on it and the...
Drop the mic!
Words like this explain why this is the best fishing report I've read in bd, even without any pictures.
Awesome deal! Glws!
Gonna try and let you know.
Let's assume no live squid available..
I went with talica 12ii with 720xh axis. Am I using too small of a reel?
I got these two stickbaits from another site. They are about 80g, the recommended application was for trolling.
I'm thinking if I can use...
Thanks guys, I appreciate the insight, I know the travel/fishing times are unpredictable so I'll book base on my only fixed factor, when I can...
Thanks will look into it!
seems like there's quite a bit of variables involved. Good thing is my schedule is fixed to either Sep or Oct so i'll just go to the LR boat...
So would you say that
3 days: travel first day, fish 2nd day, travel back 3rd day - 1 real day of fishing
4 days: travel 1st, fish 2nd, 3rd,...
I'm not sure if i'm posting in the right discussion room.
Can anyone shed some light to some questions for 3-6 days trip?
Rod rating and are you willing to split?
please let me know if it falls through, interested in 760h.
Is 800h with reel seat?
thanks Hoss! if i can't find it....your rod is in danger!
Looking for one used, please pm me!
Worth a try!
signed up! thanks in advance!!
i happen to have one for sale, pm you.
Is this a raptor?
Looking for a good to new condition JX raptor. Please PM me.
exactly! priorities... i gave up crack for fishing, it's more addictive.
How do you like that rod? That was the one I was debating against the 6'2" stronger rod.
I got the 6'2" but like the action of the 6'5".
So you got the 6'5" one? That's the only pe1.5-4 one.
Very cool, which model slow pitch rod did you use?
I went over yesterday to the show too and pick up the 632h2, I am torn between the longer 662h...
Hello any updates? Thanks.
It was a 30' boat, not sure the type. Owens 30'?
i do not know any open party boats that has enough rod holders for you!
nice arsenal but i think this is already the max. enjoy!
20 lb - Penn...
This Saturday in Ensenada, I threw a flat fall and hooked up my first yt this year, good 22#.
That's my go to now. Lol.
Yes just the Grey left
We are set for this Saturday 2/25 at Ensenada!
probably stick with 2 setups as we're going in a small hybrid lol. Need help with #2.
Incredible story telling, the details and the way you're able to convey the emotions and intensity! I really hope to experience this long range...
thanks I appreciate your input!
Just thought the high speed will have versatility in both jigging and live bait. Should we need the power, we...
Follow up question on the 50# -60# options of andros 12ii or makaira 15ii, would the 12SII be the best choice of 3 with its higher speed?
I probably would go with H instead MH here.
Your call but the terez is Braid rating.
Is it the 12Sii or 12ii?
I'll try it tonight and let you know! Thanks!
Spangler the same as springer?
Let me know if the UC 711 falls out.
Does anyone here use the Fish N Fool knot for the function as the double loop San Diego?
The andros 5ii is a good 2speed reel, decent capacity. Or you can go 12Sii for a little bit more.
I just started fishing about a year and few month. I asked the same questions here as well.
What's the first set?
-ended up with...
Good luck this year!
What were you using last year that you were undergunned?
Do you feel the 80 mega should be fished at 20,25, or 30?
I second juans recommendation for Jason's need.
Yes the SJ handle length is 85-95mm
I use a daiwa 35n-sJ it's 96 cm per crank, about 37.7", is that enough?
The wave looks calm, why aren't there more charters east side of Baja?

You're right, 30-80 is too heavy for lings, just hoping some White Sea bass shows up!

I will get the saltiga 15H for that function, maybe I should wait for saltiga 35n? specs look like its very similar to trini16.
Can the andros 5ii substitute for the Trinidad 16?
please keep us updated! will they ever sell you one of their samples at the show? That would be the fastest way to get 35nh. :D
ordering from japan will carry same warranty in US?

thanks tony! what reel/rod setup would you recommend for next step?
