I’ve had black seabass at Blue Water Market and Grill here in SD. It was damned delicious if you ask me. Would I keep one? No.
Such a awesome little reel. Watched a buddy pull in a 45# bluefin in with one of these no problem. Just perfectly simple. Wish you were closer....
Storage would be a huge buying factor for me in this case.
He meant to say albatross.
Must’ve been married at some point
Awesome, thanks for the clarification on multiple levels Randy. Btw, I spoke to you a couple years back on ordering some rods when Squidco was...
I remember albacore hats
Don’t get me wrong I am not bashing seeker in any way. I think I’ve had a Black Steel 670 in my hands more than any other bait rod fishing 25#-30#...
If the old Long Beach stuff was the business wouldn’t switching over to the current United Composites products be the most logical move? Or do...
Maybe I am just not in the “know”.
To me it just seems as if a little trend has recently popped up with these Seekers in the classifieds. Maybe...
I got $210 for ya if you change your mind.
I’ll say it again...
Metallica - Seek and Destroy!
RP knot works great. Next month... dove season! I’ll be in your neck of the woods!
Thought some of you might get some satisfaction out of this. Nature... you crazy!
Dude, you’re gonna catch a fatty.
Metallica- Seek & Destroy
I’ll take both if you’re headed to San Diego?
Cool man! Put some blood on it and report back!
The PSX will make a great 20-30# rod especially fishing spectra with short top shots.
I push the back of the hook into the rail and rotate the hook point to point downward and the bait falls right off.
It’s the best when their bait...
Nothing wrong with when you think you’re too far out. Go a liiiiiittle bit farther.
Man oh man I learned a lot on that boat. I’ll be more than happy to hop back aboard after she’s all put back together.
Did a little search. Looks like China?
Where are they made?
If you put it up for sale and come to SD shoot me a PM. Definitely interested.
Some guys will troll for Bonito while the boat moves and looks around. But don’t expect them to stop to bring that fish in. You’ll have to skipem in.
Thanks Jay. Yea I figured it would be that’s why I would rather shell out the cash for someone else to do the work (if it was worth it). I just...
Hey thanks for the feedback
Scoop from up from underneath (head away from you). Index and thumb GENTLY over the eyes. I like nose and shoulder hooking. When that hook is...
I got this rod in a trade years back and I’ve decided that I wanna do a restore (if it’s worth it?) I’ve never done this before, not sure if I am...
I am dumb for not buying this. Awesome reels...
There’s no more wahoo in San Diego we must have caught them all...
It’s like they’re targeting a specific demographic huh? Lol
Yea because they cut ties with the NRA and scrambling to get their sales back up. Pissed off a lot of people. I love my Pelican!
Not terribly old but this was from 2013 always liked this pic. I need to dig up the old Albacore photos.
UC just came out with a 800 DelMar. Might be worth checking out?
No. What did you end up getting?
Clamp the tops and hang them in the sun. Badabing badaboom.
Yea it’s all good. It’s my own darn fault. Makes it tough when the fish are flying in the corner easily within casting distance.:picknose:
It was a good trip. I forgot to mention... did you see that guy go overboard? Sheesh...
Took a buddy out on his first boat trip ever on the Liberty yesterday. I pre rigged everything the night before so we were able to rack the rods...
I heard getting married causes you to have to get rid of half your sh!t every 10 years or so?
Facts are the new hate speech. Tread lightly my friends.
I wish you a speedy recovery Jim! The fish can wait...
Gorgeous reel man!
It’s funny you mention this. I gave away some old gear to a coworker years ago that was getting started in bay and saltwater fishing. To this day...

Fwiw I was jazzed on the idea of using a Tranx HG last year on an 8day long story short I stuck with the two Trinidad 20"s and 40N I brought.
This reel in particular is worth every bit of $500 easy. The 40N is simply just another animal.
Go to Mitch's eat a sandwich and drink a beer.
Tranx 500 is hard to beat.

Calguns.net has plenty in their long gun classifieds
Also if you don't go with a UC rod I would look real hard at those new Phenix Axis jigsticks.
United Composites Del Mar 1000
But I REALLY do enjoy my Del Mar 900. Second choice 10' choice would be a Calstar GFDH 100j.
Screw the bait buy bombs
I like spectra on my Tranx for iron but mono on my trinidads for iron casting. I am weird.
Still got mine if you're interested:D
How is this not sold?
130 miles on an overnight and you complain. Sounds like the captain went the distance for his passengers.
United composites would be a great lateral move.
It doesn't have a pistol grip and doesn't look like it holds more than 10 rounds.
Sounds like an ear necklace kind of time.
They're schooling with the albacore.

I've got a tranx HG on a ulua ex if you want to try chuckin it a few times. I love the tranx.
What brand of boats were they?
Use PB blaster or just give it a good old fashioned man grip and pull.
Segura, as in Tom Segura? He's funny.
Just don't get the Outkast roller bag. Too much sag on the tray storage.
No go on the jigstick. And if you want 80# use the maxcuatro.

You must be the guy taking all those photos of Sasquatch.
Are you coming to San Diego?
Got a 780h paired with a Talica 10ii fishing with spectra on live bait. Nothing but good things
A short stiff rod isn't ideal for a spectra rig. The stiff rod and the non stretch of the spectra will make for a rigid fight. Total back...
Spectra with a short fluorocarbon leader will let your bait swim more naturally away from the boat.
Guess it happens like this
This is a direct act caused from a lack of sardines :rolleyes:. Hope the dude is alright. Scary shit.

The chief has 1 opening
Black, gold, or titanium guides? Condition?
If tying fluoro to mono use a seaguar knot, doesn't get any easier. Loop loop loop done...
Stabilizing binoculars are pretty expensive...
Or do a live feed from camera to a laptop on the boat. It would make looking for kelps a lot easier!
I was using 40# blackwater on Thursday and had no problem getting bit... I think it was more of a hook size thing. (More likely because of bait...
Super glueing someone's spool.

Pmed local in santee
When do sport boats ever report the weight of Bluefin kept from any of their trips?
It cost 15lbs of sardines for a BFT to gain 1lb where are all the sardines?

Any info on this guy?
I wouldn't say convince... Maybe just wait for a volunteer..... :rolleyes:
A lot of good thoughts here
Ok then how can we recognize these potential issues as a community in advance and remedy these possibilities before it does have a dramatic effect...
Nothing's "wrong" with it was just curious if anyone had any thoughts or predictions on what regulations could be implemented into our future...
How is the weight of kept fish measured by the sport fishing fleet "if" we are the "real" problem?
Where's the evidence of it being more $$$ on El Niño years?

Just don't become "that guy" and you'll be ok
Would it make anyone feel better if I said this BFT bite shutdown..... Lockjaw
The bluefin will be in US waters sooner or later. They're just waiting to get their permission-slips signed by the Mexican government.
What does that mean?
I like to eat tuna but I also like catch and release. that's cool with me :)
we should just catch the Bluefin then rattle-can their fins yellow
I've waited all winter for this "the tuna are here" don't ruin this for me :D bluefin, yellowfin, shitfin? I don't care let's go catching!!!!
How would you regulate multi day trips and what is kept in US or Mex waters?
Sounds like they're still upset over the World Cup?
If you're gonna do it calstar 800xl
Seen it on BloodyDecks once
Bleeding mackerel, natural cedar, black & purple cedar. Use bright colors when it's bright out and darks when it's dark out.
Just sayin big fish just offshore isn't a so much of an obscure situation
Last year spearfishing I seen schools of yellowtail 100 yards out from a certain beach in la jolla 30 pounders... Not the little guys.
