Hands down Talica 12 II.
First thing I do when I get on a sporty is ask the deckie what has been working. Seems stupid not to do that.
Minimum 5, better 7. Part of the lr experience is leaving everything behind. It takes you a couple of days just to get to that point.
Are mirage trips rockfish or “bass Bonita” type? Any plans for San Nick?
Also, fish can twist off the hook. Swivel stops all of that. I use prepared gangions with circle hook shrimpflies. I go for simplicity. Tie...
I use a swivel with a clip, so you can easily change weights as conditions demand.
When I buy used, which I don’t do anymore, I replace the line
Have you tried the SX raptor?
Still available........come and get it
Did the fish keep biting after the quake?
Any pics of 2xl
When it comes to gangions, I prefer those with circlehook shrimpflies.
I do not like using a shrimpfly above a jig. If you get a smaller rockfish on the fly, it can ruin the action of the jig. Likewise, I do not put...

Do you suppose a Chinese man or woman would know it is they’re and not their?

They go shallower in late winter early spring to spawn.
We prefer high class tall hotels with good views to condos. While on vacation, we don’t want to cook or clean.
I just ask the deckhand to set it for me. Easy peasy.
I too prefer jigs. However, there are times when they do not work, and bait is the only ticket in town. I will do what I have to do to catch...

I ask again ..... are you going to lower the price. Folks are gonna go to FH and get a good deal a free line. Just sayin
If you are in Ventura area, go to Erics Tackle. Or, go to FH Long Beach rod building seminars.
We used to call it “fur pie.”
Can I bring a tranx 500 to do maintenance?
Maybe that is why most rockfish are red .... they cannot be seen.
Let’s say a six pack or two of Guinness.

anyone fished with them? How do they treat you. Is there anything for non-fisherpersons to do for 2 or 3 days?
I use. A seeker 700 X3

It means the price is too high.
So, put similar thing in a baggie, and throw all the baggies in a Plano box.

It would probably be real expensive to ship.
What are the dimensions please.
Those are great bags, the best IMO. Just go to the store and buy one. Get the large, because it is very deep and can handle large trolling reels.

Blah, blah, blah. No Edelman, no Gronk, 12 stitches on Brady’s throwing hand, and yet they beat Jax.
Who will beat them and their experience?
I thought $350 was too much.
Who do you get reel covers from.
You will have a small open space on one of them.
I find that the best deals are on peripherals ... jigs, hooks, plastics, line etc. Turner’s usually has good deals on blem Avets. Take cash ......
I am more concerned about Gronk’s head.
Actually, reading page one of this thread, the seller did not go silent. It appears he immediately offered fifty bucks, or a full refund plus...
I still think a full refund plus shipping was OK.
Well, it just amazes me that folks would catch 200 of them, no matter how good they taste. FWIW, I love Sally’s sand dabs at Lure Fish House.

Yes, it was a good trip in spite of a one day boat cruise. Like you said, bft being bft. We had a great bunch of guys and the crew was outstanding.
Just got off the JRI jigs Colonet trip. We spent all day Sat cruising for bft. Never saw a single one. Never got my line wet.

Recommended bft tackle?
so the limits are higher here than Mexico? Interesting
Is that per day?
It depends upon wether you target them or not, and when you fish.
It is stupid to think that all, or even most, folks who go once or twice a year are rent rodders or newbies.
Were there any sheepshead and whitefish at Colonet? Were you using finbait or squid strips for the rockfish?
What about the rest of the folks on the boat? I suspect that if a captain tried to enforce artificially low limits, he would lose business.
You mean make a sandwich with them........
And you surmise this from what?
So, if I do a two 1/2 day trip to Colonet, what is my total limit of yt and rockfish?
Ummmmm, “all time low?” You better fire your broker.
Seems folks who get to fish a lot are ok with smaller daily limits. But, what about those who get to fish once or twice a year.
At least, that is what I do. Now, using short topshots, each one can go up or down one line class

Well, they also got a lot of folks here talking about it.
Pick up in Oxnard only. But then, the price is right .... I will trade it for a six pack of Guiness stout....
Now that is funny.
No plastic trays, no lunch box
Pick up in Oxnard
Can anyone recommend a good split ring pliers? Thanks
which brand fluoro makes the best over 100lb stuff.
Love lingcod. It has been so long, I don't remember what calico tastes like. I do remember they taste good.
You are going to be eating elk all winter and summer.
I think they shorefish near the dam, but I am not sure.
What hook ... type and size .... did you use on the sniper? Thanks
Are you at all interested in a hxj raptor in excellent condition?
I thought the lawyers asked the questions?
Read the thread "pursuit went long."
This is what I use ... the leader comes out thru the little black grommet on the bottom....
So, how far do you cast your jig for wahoo? Do you cast as far as you can like a surface jig, or just out away from the boat and then let it sink?...
What exactly are you referring to?
Why? Is it more abrasion resistant?
I use it and it works really well. Are you wetting the line?
Which is preferred for dropper-loop fishing .... fluoro or mono?
That sort of sounds like a design flaw.
Good service for customers.
Not too smart.
What language is that? Did you learn that in California public school system?
I love Costco meats.
Be careful. A lot of S&F beef is select. Not prime or choice, but the lower grade select. Tough shit to chew.
You will find that, generally speaking, folks here are loyal to a particular brand. All modern reels are very good. Very, very good. Likewise,...
I have had very good experiences with Allianz. Would not use anything else.
I guess what I am saying is using the Asian moniker was not germane to the report. A group of guys would have been sufficient.
The thing is, by using the Asian stamp, you are tending to say it is asians who do these sorts of thing. Otherwise, why say asians? I mean, it...
But, the Tranx has level wind.
So, regular 80 lb power pro, or 80 lb. maxcuatro?
Where are the pictures of the pre trip bar girls?
If they got away with blocking the exits and moving tackle boxes, shame on the crew.
If I am going to use it for hoos, is 80 lb spectra more better?
Then go to Phil's for cioppino (sp?)........ beat out Bobby Flay on throw down.
Sounds like a lot of work. But, if it produces.

Depends on the Dr.

For pier ... use stability rig next to piling for live bait.
Deckhand rods are also lighter ... for all day use.
Seems like a lot of folks here complain about daiwa service. Though I love my saltiga 30 (older model) and have never had a service problem.
My weapon of choice is an avet hxj raptor on a Phenix bdh 809xh
I had some smoked bsb once. It was goooooooooooooood.

Really nice. Don't know that I am a fan of the wooden handle. Are there separators, or will the hanging jigs bang against each other?

I am still using my calcuttas from 15 years ago. No problems. service them once a year.
Do you crimp or tie? How long of a leader. Do you use a swivel to tie your line to?
On most of the islands, you just snorkel from shore. That's where all of the life is.
I like Tacs. I have five of them.
There is a guide at Eric's Tackle in Ventura who does surf fishing. His speciality is fly fishing the surf.
Did you bleach it?
I think he was saying he wished he had been better prepared for the small bait.
Has anyone used these? Are they better than regular cedar plugs?
Ummmm ..... meaning?
Rail rodded fish do not break record.

One last one...... color and weight? Thanks. I am on the Excel a little later and want to be prepared.
How did you fish the coltsniper.
Avet hxj raptor. Phenix bdh 809xh
Ever seen a video of a pack of wolves eating an elk they downed? It ain't dead and they are chowing down. Fish swallow other fish whole and alive.
Follow the $$$$$$
Product of public schools.
I believe you can assume operations like Cedros Adventures are the ones who got it closed. Money musta crossed some palms.
You get what you pay for.
Small claims Court for expenses.
Anyone know final counts for this trip?
Because I want it to be stronger than the monotopshot.
Cannot use those in Cali .... two hook max.
Aren't those at the wrong end of the jig?
I wonder if the Cedros closure will mean more LR time will be spent grouper fishing.
Like you did?
Amberjack and grouper at the rocks? That is a new one for me.
Count your blessings. Had it been a custom job, you also would have had to pay for the rewrap.
Where does the name "biscuit" come from?
You need to learn how to read for comprehension. I referenced a prior post .... even put it in quotes. In direct reference to that post I said...
"Wrong again." That is one of the most asinine statements I have ever seen. You asked me where I got the idea .... I told you. It was a quote...
I got the idea from an earlier post. Seems EVERYONE who used the service agrees with me.

You might want to consider clipping those spikes before you put them in the fish well. One poke can ruin a trip real quick.

Hey Wils .... how are you doing up north?
2-3 Hours in morning for wsb, then 2-3 hours for rockfish limits. Easy peasey.
What brand of inserts do you guys use?
Maybe the taxmen have followed the fish to somewhere else.
Actually, I am asking how short can I use. I want as short as possible without having the swivel or braid spook the hoos.
I used to kill the sandies on a bomber with a slab of mackerel. Unfortunately, the sandies do not seem to visit Ventura much anymore.
SX Raptor will do for 20-60 lb fish. HXJ raptor for bigger stuff, including hoo bombs, yoyo and surface iron. Get two reels and you are set.
So, after reading this thread, I thought I would give Stoked a try once again this am. I watched for five minutes .... a friggin travel show....
A different question. I will be trying heavy fluoro leaders instead of wire on my bombs and raiders. I find that I need shorter leaders on my...

Stay in Cayucos. You will love it. It is like being back in 1950. If you want a fine meal, dine at the Cass House. Great pier fishing.
Do you also get the black hole blanks? I would probably want one wrapped to match my other rods. Thanks.
What is the line rating for the challenger 801h?
Well, I am going to have to do a road trip from Oxnard to the valley.
Ok. The reason I was asking about the challenger is because it is one piece, which I like. I don't know that pulling on yt and yft on a...
So, I am fairly new to saltwater spinning. I want to see if I can use one set up for popping, surface jigs, Raiders and bombs for hook and maybe...
I am guessing they came from the fingernails
someone released some lake trout into Yellowstone Lake .... screwed up the whole ecosystem
Are they going to do it at other Turners .... like Oxnard?
I thought you could not take those out of water.
Like that has anything to do with it.
What would be the proper tuna hook? What size? Thanks
They already have it. Cedros Adventures .... the "mothership" is landlocked.
So, I see there are open eye siwash hooks available. I assume you swap them out and close the eye with some pliers. Is this type of eye strong...
Reeling up a rockcod caught on a jig, it suddenly got real heavy. 225 lb mako.
Would this rod also be good for throwing surface iron and maybe hoo bombs?
anyone having good deals on xtratuf?
What poppers were you using, if I may ask?
Bd can be held liable for things posted here. Nuff said.
I guess it is all just a matter of personal taste. I still turn it on, but I switch it off more often than not.
Good looking stuff. Those lobsters might be good red crab imitators.
They are starting to bite up here in Oxnard too.
So "fair share" is you don't have to unload their fish, but they have to unload yours. I call that freeloading by you.
Ummmmmm.....this is a fishing website.
Do a search...this was just hashed out on a long thread. If I am "that guy" I have a lot of company. A lot.
Was that the surface jig or yoyo?
Tired of guys saying "son" when they are freshwater fishing. Don't care for Roland Martin, don't care for guys imitating him.
Could not disagree more. There are a lot of good things on TV. Thank god for remotes.
Tired of hearing guys laugh like little girls, tired of hearing "dude" , tired of a sound engineer who cannot remove the loud wind noise, tired of...
Right thing in your mind. Does not mean it is right in everyone's minds. It is a personal decision.
That would be like saying those who do not pay any taxes should get free food, housing, education and healthcare from those who do work and pay...
Seems to me that is one of the benefits of using 5 star. No pushing. What advantage to using five star if you have to push carts for those who...
Yeah, but it sounds like Monte is no longer there.
Too light for yoyo.
For sure I want to use that service this fall. I am going on the Seeker 10 dayer.
Just curious, do they check fish tags one at a time as they...
Do you mean they will unload your fish from boat? That would be great.
So this is a business you are advertising.
You're a licensed captain?
I remember when the same folks removed the wolves from Yellowstone. Baskets of good but misguided intentions. Terrible results.
Take it where you bought it. Easy peasey.
I will let you know when they let us catch cowcods again. IOW, we will never know.
Love the bd salute on the second picture .....
You think those outfitters worked with the mexicans to get the island closed to LR

Halibut, Tim Berg, AK., with maybe some lingers on the side.
I see your point. If i ordered a Ford, I would sure call Detroit to check on its status rather than the dealer I ordered it from. Did it ever...
$250 for 3 or 4 hours of fishing Long Beach? Wow. Great deal.
I use mine for yoyo and hoo bombs
Seems to me when a fish bites, the jig will pivot in the middle and the free hook will rub against the line, possibly tangling it or cutting it....
Go to the Excel website, they will tell you what gear you need to bring.
The question seems to be whether or not the boat went out with the problem already in existence.
That what dumpsters at the HUD projects are for. I pay for them, I might as well use them.
"The chance of landing a fish that does not bite is nil."
That about says it all.
I rode the Q many time and was never told that. Never saw a problem with the downstairs head either.
The Q105 had downstairs head. No problems.
Sounds like the boat needs some dry dock time.
Screws look rusty.
Katy Perry color works too, esp on Colt Snipers.
If it is not a flat fall, what is it?
Temps down south are cold. Bft can handle that better than yft. We shall see.

Used is a pretty non-ambiguous word. Why the big lead in? Put up a price and see what you get.
"Top dollar". "Used equipment". Those are not synonymous. Used, old equipment is not really desirable.
Yeah, I would put 65 solid braid on a jx, and I would get the raptor model.
Link to original for sale posting would be helpful. Gotta protect your fellow members.

Use the search function.
Problem with your logic is that some boats and processors are already doing it.
"Can" "want to" and "need to" are different things. The fact that some of the boats and processors tout not having to move fish as a selling...
The arm is only about 1/4inch longer. Will that really affect the gears?
Can you translate that into English?
Gee, does that guy have wings and a halo too?
The other members of the team are free to use fishermans too. Gimme a break.
Why would you do that? Isn't NOT doing that the whole point of using fishermen's?
What weight topshot?
Don't know about gluing a self tightening knot.
As I said .... depends on where you catch them. Caveat emptor.
I use the Collins knot. Fast, easy, small profile and not a single failure yet.
Worms depend on where you catch them. Shallower sandy bottom areas have worms. Catch them at the outer islands in deeper cold water and you will...
No one in so cal snells circle hooks.
so, they are paying us back for overrunning their lands.
Well said Jamie. I would think some enterprising processors would do their damndest to provide this type of service. Those types of options...
Seems to me the processors might want to get involved. All things being equal on the actual processing, I would certainly lean towards using one...
I understand that some boats work with certain processors and unload your fish for you. Not sure which ones, though.
Actually, it is a matter of reeling up 300-600 feet of braid over and over and over again. It is so much easier with a level wind. I must have...
I noticed a lot of white jigs with a red "s" painted on them. What's with that?
I use the white bomber jig with red stripes, and I add a red curly tail. It kills vermillion rockfish.

anyone notice that "Inside Sportfishing" is no longer on Spectrum/Time Warner cable? What happened?
I bet the fishing license fee went up to catch less fish.

I would get a couple of jerrys red crab yoyo jigs.
Remember, if yoyo fishing .... too close to the bottom will result in rockfish. Get a bit up from the bottom to get yt.
Seems like more often than not, a lighter will not get to the bottom and still be at a reasonable angle to jig/yoyo. Bottom line .....sometimes...
I have found that getting down faster and more straight up and down is a plus when yoyo jigging.
I know his yoyo jigs are brass and heavier than the "size equivalent" salas or tadys. That makes JRIs better yoyo jigs than the others. IMO
