[ATTACH] Thanks Arvin! Got my poppers Friday and man they are epic looking! Can’t wait to take them down to Mexico and give them a shot.
I ended up canceling. Picked up some more guide trips up here and the fishing and weather didn’t add up enough for me to make the haul. I am...
If they played at dodger stadium I’d be all over it. Good price and great seats from the look of it. GLWS

Permits included, food included?

These jigs are unbeatable with the Jobu hooks! Unbelievable how much better the jobu hooks are. I’m ready for my October trip!!
Guy Is great, I called him and told him exactly what I wanted and he set me up. Thanks for posting the website, I forgot too.

Thanks for the report! :frehya2:
I’m waiting!! Excited
Nice! Thanks for the report!
Very nice butt! Lol. I’ll take halibut over yellowtail to eat any day! Sounds like a great day, surface iron fishing is the best when the yellows...

Had to of been the constitution!?
I’d probably take two at 4 inches chovie color. I’ll pick up or send money PayPal. Any video on these popping?

We were just casting out and getting bit on the sink. I lost a few jigs to the bigger grade inhaling the jigs, I was only fishing 40 pound mono.
Down at the ridge they were eating the flatfalls no problem. We had fish to 45 pounds. Anchovy, sardine and pink/blue were all getting bit.

Great info on this subject. I have til September 20th to figure it out.
Robert, no more rods!!! We talked about this!! Lol good luck buddy
Meant for it!! I would have my tn20 all over it! I don’t need another rod! I don’t need another rod! Lol GLWS
That’s one of the ones I had in mind. I’m also thinking the sardine and green mackerel. Looks like they’ll be back in stock sometime in June.
What are some of the hot colors for wahoo.? I’m looking to try a few in late September. Thanks in advance
That 711xh is a bad ass wahoo bomd rob! I want it but don’t have all the funds yet, Gotta stop buying reels! Lol
I’m adding a Mak 20 and a viper this year. I did the Mak 16 and centaur last year!
Looks like the Mustang just put up a 2.5 day trip memorial weekend! That’s a great boat with fishy captain and crew.
Yeah I know they make a couple different models of the 809, I just though it was funny! Based on his price I figured PSW809.
Hahaha that one of the funniest things I’ve seen posted in awhile! Maybe less :hali_olutta: and more reading the post! Funny shit.
Jax jigs are awesome! Ed’s jigs are my go too, caught hundreds of nice rockfish and lings with those. I was the only one on the Mirage a couple...

San Diego knot for hooks and jigs

Yeah thanks to you Larry, wish i coulda meet ya. Brother said your a cool guy! I will put that Andros to work next weekend on my 2.5 Pac Voyager...
Awesome report!! My trip is around the corner and I can’t wait!!!
Found what I need. Thanks too everyone that helped me out! BD is the best!
It’s one of my many bad habits. I’m addicted to throwing the iron, what can I say! It’s a blast watching fish eat the jig!
Chuck is looking for you. You should maybe pm him. It’s regarding the memorial weekend 2.5 day on the Pac voyager.
Man I hate thieves!!
I’m looking to buy about 6-12 wahoo bombs is good condition, prefer new but I’d like to see what’s available. Thanks!
Chuck his post is in the fishing chit chat.. the title Is who’s fishing where??
Haven’t spooled it up yet! I got 550 100# Jb hallow on my Mak 16ll so I’m guess I’ll get 750 yards of 130# BJ hallow on the Mak 20. Te over at...
Nothing in particular. I just got my Mak 20 and I’m looking to get the Andros 16ll. I have my set up all worked out really.
I own 50-60 jri’s And I still have both my arms and legs!! Lol, they’re worth every penny!! Great colors!!
Thanks I’m surprised too but I’m not desperate to sell so I’m not looking to just give it away.
Big bluefin are chewing!
Well chuck you only can do so much, looks like he might miss out like the guy who was still on the freeway an hour away at 6 o’clock departure, we...
You should move this over to the rod and reel classifieds. You’d get some reponses I bet.
It’s now sponsored by Avet! Pretty cool huh. I wonder if they’re gonna like all the Okuma stuff I have?
Hahahahaha. Not trouser trouts, trouser clams!! They’re the best.
Which trip are you on? I can’t wait for either, I’m ready!!

Sent my remaining balances two weeks ago. I should be all paid up. Thanks Chuck!
It says 50% deposit. Maybe it’s getting to close and they don’t want flakey people. I would understand that.
Back up for sale. Flakes are the best!!
Damn bob that didn’t take long. What about my early bday present!? Lol
Awesome deal and for a great cause. Thanks for the heads up, I’ll be getting a few tickets.
Great price! Surprised it’s not sold.
Not to mention the Pac Voyager is one of the best charter boats there is! Great captain, crew and Jeff in the kitchen is awesome! Can’t wait for...
It’s pending, just gotta make time too meet. Works crazy right now. If Something changes I’ll let you know. Thanks
Hahahaha no shit huh!
That’s f***ing sick!!!
You can send me a pm and we can arrange that. Reel is down in the Long Beach area.
Yeah I’m 300 miles away from the water and a boat. If you want, I’ll throw them in for ya, might help your fish catching.
New price $435
I thought it was hilarious. Fish deserved to live after circling 50 times 10 feet from boat. Did the guy have no pulling power or what??
Ready for the bluefin!
Such a sick boat!! :drool::drool:
Sweet! Thanks for the update.
Huh ok good to know.
What reel where you using with the Centaur?
Got one buddy, thanks.

That’s awesome!! Thanks for the pics. Gotta get up there with the kid and do some fishing soon.
Both great boats and they are catching really good quality rockfish right now with a little showing of yellows. I really want to try the Pacific...
That should go real fast!! Lots of peeps looking for that reel! Great price!

How much hollow?
That’s a big orca for sure!!

Yeah I’m thinking real hard on that trip. Did you fish it last year? If so, I’d like to know how the fishing was. I’m hoping for wahoo really!
I’d be interested, let me know if it happens. Thanks
Oh ok gotcha. Yeah I’m even thinking the Beck 8 day at the end of the month. I really want to catch wahoo.
What trip you thinking of doing? I was thing the 8 day Sept 15/23.
I’m using 65# braid with a 4ft. top shot of 50 pound Ande.
I have my tranx hg on a Phoenix 909xhj. I’ve killed lots of tuna on poppers and yellows with the surface iron on it. Not to mention a 135# bluefin...
Great price with extra handle. GLWS you’ll sell it, be patient.
Yeah you definitely sold it for cheap here! Nice come up by someone

I’m glad your buying this year!! :cheers:
I think you have it covered with the reels you already have. I have a makaira 16ll sea paired with a UC Centaur and didnt touch it the whole 7 day...
Oh man that’s awesome! Gonna be a great time for sure!
What trio are you on in September?? I’m on the spirit of adventure sept. 9-16.
Sounds like makaira 10 all the way with that predator. Your set
I don’t think the 8ft predator is too long for yo-yo, it’s all a personal preference. I fish the Andros/Predator with 40-60 depending on what I’m...
I think that mak 10 would be perfect. I have the 7’6 predator paired with a Andros 12slla and it’s my favorite rig.
Yep same here! Regular gel ones.
That’s on the way back, bringing the candy!!
Oh ok. You said tn14 that’s the old model. I’m guessing your actually looking for a Trini 14a. Makes sense I guess.
Any interest in a TN 14 for trade. It’s in prestine shape and loaded with 20 pound Ande.
I bought my 12slla last year around May/June.
I’ve also heard that same thing, but I’ve yet to encounter a problem so I’m lucky I guess. I’ve heard the Andros 16 is the one with the most...

Bad ass rod! I’ve killed a lot of fish with mine. GLWS
I’ll try to take some when I get home from work. The reel is in the bag and the rod is in its sock. I’ll post pics for sure tho
UC predator 7’6 paired with a Okuma Andros 12slla. That’s my bad mo**er f***ker set up. Kills tuna, yellows, wahoo. I truly love this set up.
I was at PVR Sunday, the stream from the top to the gorge was epic. I was using a #18 blue winged olive and a #18 black and silver zebra midge....

I’m in. Eagles-24 Pats-17
I have the PSW909xhj and it’s everything I need for iron or poppers. It’s light and I like the xrap grip. I pair it with a Tranx HG and it’s a beast!
Check bdecks classified. There was a guy who had tons recently.
They were paddy hopping, not at the colonett.
Now that’s a sexy 40n. GLWS
Trinidad 20.... period!
Really??? I honestly didn’t know that and I shop there too. Thanks
I’m not trying to argue but if you pull back and can stand in and fight a fish, it’s all the rod you’ll need. Why isn’t it a 50-60 pound rod???...
Nah.... better off selling a dozen or half dozen at a time!! Time is money!
Not really!! I say order the stuff pre Fred Hall, like from bob sands or anyone else, but usually you’ll save only a few bucks, but that’s it....
Not at all. I’m 6’0 and it’s exaftly what I like. I pull hard and it’s all of a 50-60 pound rod.
UC 7’6 Predator all the way!!! Awesome wahoo and yo-yo set up! I killer the yellows at colonette, good times.
I actually engrave it. Just for my piece of mind.
Painters tape in small strips. My reels I have my initial scribed on the silver part that sits in the reel seat on a rod.

Jaime is the man!!! I went to him for a few UC rods and he set me up solid!! I would say UC predator 7'6 for the rod your looking for!! Again...
Seems like a lot of those paddies are drying up with all the overnight boats slamming them all month long. Hopefully more fish are working there...
I'm more of a 7'6 rod kinda guy, I pull hard. Your 7'6 rod is a medium heavy so put the reel on both rods and pull and pick which one you feel...
Saltiga 35n and your UC monster 8 foot rod. That's plenty good.
For my 60 pound rod I have a Talica 16 ll speed and the UC 7'6 predator. An absolute tuna killer. Gonna fish that pretty hard on my 7 day.
Yes sir! Sorry forgot to mention that.

Thanks Bun for working with me even tho I live in Mammoth. Thanks for holding the 909xhj til my cousin could meet you. You da man!!

Wow really great hard to beat price right there. I'd be all over it if I didn't already have one. Glws
I don't full on cast, I cast into the prop wash and slide It back til it's gets where I want it to be. Usually it gets bit right outta the prop wash
My favorite drop back jig for albacore is a channel island chovy colored fish trap. Absolutely kills them!
Ok will do. I also got a big bluefin (135) on the RP knot but I was only using 50 pound line. I'm learning the FG knot, I hear great things about it.
I am using solid just because I like tying the RP knot and it's proven to hold big fish for me.
Ok so I have the same rods. But my reels are a bit different for the rods. I am putting the talica 16 with the UC raptor with 80# solid spectra...
White, better to see and follow your line on a drift.
Looks like 18 people. Should be a good one
I think it would be a good yoyo reel as well. Also maybe a good 40 pound live bait reel depending on what rod you had it on. I was thinking about...
Thata boy!:appl: Good juju on you too for hooking and handing off. Vagabond is a great boat and crew!
Yep that's exactly what I have. A Talica 16 2 speed and 7'6 predator is my 60lb. set up and my 80-100 pound set up is a Makaira 16 2 sea and a 7'6...
Hahahaha that's true I can dream and one day I'll be on the big 14 day trips. I would love to get a 200 pound bluefin.
I'll pick that up for my 7 day in September! Thanks buddy!!!! I owe you one
Very nice Steve. Looks good!
Hahahaha that's what happened to me on my buddies boat, and I definitely don't wanna do that again. Except catch a bluefin of course!
Like everyone is saying, I have my 40# set up as a fathom 25nld and a Phoenix 760h rod. I got a 90# bluefin last year at desperation reef on that...
Pm sent on Model C. Thanks
Yeah what the f**k is up with that?? Sketchy?!!
Shiner perch aka 7-11. Great halibut bait. I've caught many on that bait fishing from piers.

What trip you on In September? What boat too? I'm on the spirit of adventure 7 day Sept. 9-16.
I have my talica 16 2 speed paired up with a UC 7'6 predator rod. Absolutely epic 40-60 pound set up! I would even fish 80 in a pinch.
I think you should go with 500 yards of maxcuarto and 80 pound. I have the Makaira 16 2 sea and I'm doing exactly that, especially now we have a...
Pacific carnage is in front of Avalon loaded with squid. Channel 11 I believe.
UC predator 7'6 or 8 ft. Great combo
Jump on the Pacific Queen. That's a great boat, captain and crew. You won't be disappointed.
At that price I'm guessing PSW
Thanks for the report! Great boat and those are some slug reds! Looks like decent weather too
Those should sell fast! Good luck with sale.
Wow someone is gonna get a crazy good deal on that Makaira 20 2 speed
What I saw at the Fred hall show was sick! It's a Phoenix axis 1009 30-60 pound rod for tossing iron. I pulled on it and it's a freaking beast....
Jri 7 Mint, scrambled egg, blue/white.
Pics would be awesome
Insurance $$$$$$$$$$. I've heard rumors for about two years now. And they pled guilty... wow!
I'm putting my Tranx hg on a Phoenix 909xhj jig stick. Using mostly for surface irons and maybe mess around with some bombs for wahoo.

You can't scuba dive and use a speargun in Mexico. Period. You can freedive and use a speargun but that's it.
^^^^^ what jerdog said. But I would go with the Grande. Bigger boat and I bet the load is gonna be light too.
Yes great deal for a 2.5 day on the Islander. That's a real limited load for that size boat!
Very nice boat and great crew. So only meals included and permits extra? Also how many people is a limited load? Thanks
Wow great price! Glws
Or the Oceanside 95. They're killing it
Where are you located? I'm interested in the rod. Thanks
One day I'll never forget. I felt like I was doing it all over again. Great write up Robert! Big thanks to Sonny from Exotics fishing charters!...
I'll tAke the 800m if you will separate combo.
Seems like the fish are finally reacting to flat falls and bait. Great news for everyone. Thanks for the report!
I'm sure you could call the office and find out. That's the route I would take
Interested in the 800m if not sold
Great write up as usual Cory! Thanks for the detailed report.
X4 New Lo An
You :smoking33::smoking33: it says each
Hahaha I don't think anyone wants to give theirs up!
Last bump. Buying one Sunday if no one has one for sale. Pm me If you have one . Thanks
Damn it!!! If that was a tranx hg I'd be all over it. GLWS
Looking to buy a lnew or like new Shimano tranx HG. With or without power pro is fine. Let me know what you have. I have cash in hand and ready to...
If that tranx was an HG model I'd be all over it. Free bump for ya.
Ummmm I think it says they are new in box?! :smoking33:
Islander is one of the top notch boats out there that you don't really hear too much about. It's a super comfortable boat and the crew is...
I love my hybrid 888mh!! I can launch a jig a mile and cast any bait I want with that rod. Definitely one of my favorite rods. Can't believe no...
Hahaha yup! Dog eat dog industry. All about the $$$$$$ and that's the boats I stay away from!
Ya there were there last year. Bitchen little boat and all, just burned a lot of people on that trip so we'll see what happens.
Ya your right false advertising. I heard San Deigo is giving them more money so that's where they took the boat too. Business I guess.
The boats is still in dry dock and won't be ready for a few weeks is what I was told. Maybe the end of June.
Man I can't believe people aren't jumping all over this deal?! It seems like a great price and the boat and crew are awesome. I can't wait to go!
I agree. It's crazy people are keeping all these baby yellows. I wouldn't mind catching them but to keep them? There never gonna have a chance to...
Thanks for the report. Great quality of fish on those seabass! Glad there not the size of the yellows.
I really like the eclipse but I'm going to have to say the Pacific Queen. They've been so on it and the boat is equally roomy as the eclipse. In...
Absolutely can't wait to do the Cedros Island trip. I have never fished the island and im super stoked on meeting and fishing with you guys....
Kudos too you if you sell those trini golds for that price. Are these ones dipped in gold? Jk glws
I have both clamps and they are both bomb proof. I don't get how one is better than the other when there just clamps that are different styles....
Huh!?????? The 16a has a clamp? How does that even make sense??
Man I absolutely love my hybrid 888MH Phoenix rod for throwing irons. It's a strong ass rod too. Ive gotten multiple yellowfin on the popper and...
Not really a big deal as its a big wide boat and very comfortable. They're a great group of guys and you'll have a blast!
^^^^^^^^^what he said ^^^^^^^^
Don't trade for a narrow, you're gonna want the regular for line capacity. I love my trini 16a for 15-30 pound line.
Thanks for the jigs Mike. I got to use them the Saturday after I bought them from ya and killed the rockfish with the 200gram flat falls. Even...
Didn't stick it to my fellow bdeckers it got sold so fast I had guys wanting me to hold it for 400 bucks but I told them first come first serve....
Well unfortunately it wasn't big enough for our boat and ya it's well worth the money. Don't be pissed off or crying cause your a day late and...
I'm only talking threw experience, and yes it is a good operation and they are a great crew and all. I'm just giving you a heads up, that's all....
Picked up this tank last week for the Parker and it's not big enough for our greedy bait wanting selves. I believe it's a 45-50 gallon tank and...
I gotta bad feeling there's gonna be some extra charges coming your way. Like a fuel surcharge and a mandatory meal plan and all permits. Just...
Oh man I know what you mean about homemade salsa for the breakfast burritos. Jeff on the Pacific Voyager puts out a mean homemade salsa and a...
I really like the Eclipse, it's roomy and the bunks are decent as well. Free parking too. I've never been on the Prowler so I don't have any info...
Ya I hear ya. I Didn't mean you said they were lying. Who knows, if the tuna are around in good numbers like people are saying they might change...
They are doing a trip tonight( wensday ) for tuna offshore and the Friday night trip has Colonett posted as there destination so ya I'm assuming...
Trinidad 20 or 30 half spool of spectra back and the rest filled to the brim with 40 pound Ande.
21 yellows and limits of rockfish for 29 guys and gals
I really like the penn fathom 25n 2 speed for yoyo fishing. Plenty of spectra backing and even a twenty foot peice of forty pound top shot. Plenty...
Nice did you get him on the rasta popper? Love fishing with candy bait!
Well you might wanna add what model! Like M, ML, MH, H, XH? There's alot of models so all details help around here. Good luck
Ya that's true. That's some exspensive bluefin, but hey it's all about being on the water and having s great time. Beats work!!
Hahaha that's it... I was letting everyone know. I'll see you out there tomorrow.
Thats true, I just heard the trip was venturing south to take a look. Some of the long range boats have been seeing schools on the way down also.
Definitely Mexico, they had limits for 17 guys, 34 fish. And they lost some bigger models too. It's on fellas!!
I'll take the 670c. Sent a pm
So I take it that's a no to my pm u sent you?
Will you send me some pics too? I'll pm you my number. Thanks
Colonett has been fishing real good so I would make it worth your wild and go the distance. Pacific Queen has been the hot boat all year so far! I...
I got a shimano Curado 200e7 that's basically brand new and never had line on it?? Let me know
I really like the 800ML for anchovies and sardines because of the softer tip. I have mine paired with a Trinidad 30 and 30 pound test. I've killed...
The very last Line has a view attachment that you can click on to see one.
Hahahaha no shit I think everyone in this board would take it at 300!! :smoking33::smoking33:
Are you talking about a tn20 gold series?? You wanna trade a new Trinidad for an old version one??
That's why when the San Deigo or the Malahini are running 3/4 day trips I choose them over just about any other overnight trip. Exceptions would...
Does the sabre have a name on it?
Man that's awesome to see there's still quality around the neighborhood. It's a big ocean so I'm sure there's another magic stone somewhere out front.
That looks like an old picture from the 90s when there were fish like that out front. Haven't seen reds like that in redondo since I was a kid...
Nice ok. Decent sized jigs so decent sized reds. Makes sense
Looks like a 6x scrambled egg
Nice go around on the reds! Looks like a great day and at least the sun was out. I'm hoping to get down there soon and do some fishing myself....
Bitchen reels and camo at that. Pretty cool
Sorry about that! I've been a little busy at work at forgot. Ya my plan is to still head down that way this weekend. If something changes I'll let...
I'll be down in redondo this weekend and would like to pick all up if available. Let me know, thanks.
Also I would recommend putting about 100 feet of mono top shot on instead so when you cast the knot doesn't get caught up in the guides or the...
That should be fine! You're gonna launch those things with that rod. Should be fun!!
I've been fishing since I was young so I really don't have a problem casting lite baits to heavy jigs with these set ups. Practice is all it...
Im not to sure of the weight of irons I throw but they are the JRI surface irons. They swim soooo damn good and I've never used one that didn't....
I mainly use my 888mh for throwing surface iron for yellows or poppers for tuna. I've gotten a few tuna over thirty on that rod and love it. I...
50 pound spectra is the way to go on the 16A
Phoenix 888 hybrid and a top shot of 25-40 test depending on what your fishing For. I got a 30 pound yellowfin on the popper on that rig! It was...
Wow ...... Are they the new silver ones? Pics would help.
I don't think he's saying somethings wrong with your post it's just we are doing the same thing in May so he might of gotten mixed up.
It says January 21-24. Steve the trip we are going on with chuck is the end of May. Lol
I live up in mammoth lakes California and I always us fishermans processing! They are super great and I just let them know I'm driving home( which...
8 ft. And two pound test for a mini jig is my go too. You can cast the jig far enough and feel a bite with the long rod!
I would back it with 65 pound spectra and a top shot of 40 or 50 pound monofilament. Killer reel for yellowtail yoyo. Do you mind if I ask what u...
Can't wait to get on the Vagabond and fish. Sounds like a great operation and good crew. Looks like you guys along with the Pacific Queen did...
Ya I got the email from Matt and saw a couple trips that look fun. Fishing closing weekend last year was really cold and the weather was crazy....
What's up man, long time no see or talk too. I'm not sure if we are gonna make a Poseidon trip this year, I'm thinking of taking Dylan on a five...
Well fellas, Good ol Mother Nature is bringing feet of snow to the sierras this weekend so im stuck up here working,plowing snow from the looks of...
Viva Mexico!!! Love the colors
Wow bob that was a great price for a clean new reel!
What happened in this trip?? Never saw a count or report.
Yup you got it. South shore too!
Nice picture! That's one of my favorite lakes! It's super scenic and the fishing is usually pretty good.
That's awesome! He's a great captain! I'll know if I can make it wensday. Im crossing my fingers!
[ATTACH] [ATTACH]. Sacramento perch caught in July and my son holding a rainbow caught on Gull lake!
[ATTACH]. 9 1/2 pound rainbow caught on Crowley. October 2016.
Who's running the trip, captain wise? Man I gotta get outta the mountains and fish. Work work work and no play!
The first pic u can.
There's your sign!!
I'll take the 700m and 700h
Man I wish I could of gone. Sounds like an epic trip and a great time. Did you guys fish anywhere else like San Martin or did you guys just stay...
I pmed you?? No response.
So besides having the time of your lives, how was the fishing?
I don't know about giant squid but there's candy bait to be found for bait! Good luck
Does the reel have a clamp too? Thanks
We got hammered the last four days in the Eastern Sierra. I live in Mammoth lakes and we got well over two feet In town and around five or six...
Ande all the way!!!!!

Man what a steal!! I can't believe this is not gone. If I didn't have two I would be all over this deal. Bump for a steal of a price!!
Are meals included on this trip?I'm ready to go! Thanks in advance
Some pics would help.
Man If that 700m had a form grip I'm sure it would be gone already. Glws and here's a bump for ya!
Fight on!!! Great report as always Cory. Thanks!
How much are you asking? If it's free I'll pick it up right now!
I'll take it next if it falls threw.
Thanks Jim that's good to hear! How has the bugging been going for you? I'll be down that way in a week doing the same thing. My buddy has a boat...
^^^^ what he said. San Deigo is a kick ass 3/4 day boat. That's what I would do, if you wanted yellows. There fishing the island.
Nice bugs! Looking forward to getting out soon and doing a little hooping myself. Thanks for the info.
I can't believe this hasn't sold. If I didn't just buy one I'd be all over it. Glws
Probably my favorite 3/4 day boat anywhere! Those guys fish hard and are always consistent. top notch captain and crew.
[ATTACH] Mammoth Mountain this Morning.
Yes we are expecting weather and freezing cold weather all week long. It's time to tune the skis and wax the board! Can't wait!
Just talked to my buddies and they hit convict lake first for about a dozen fish using castmasters, Thomas Bouyants. Also one guy was throwing a...
No I have a 18 foot fisher that we where trolling rapalas and needle fish in.
