If you are willing to ship and decide to trade it for cash please let me know.
Donna, was it the chartermaster whom acted in a bad manner or the staff employed to run the boat?
This sport is too expensive for me. I am going to go back to drowning earth worms.
The reel would have to be shipped. Please pm or text me what you got. 718-496-8237 Thanks, Chad
Dave, please stop rising for the bait. It only draws more trollers.
Spline and other terms if you are building rods.
If you walk into a local tackle shore they will most likely answer all your questions and suggest gear which will work locally.
I have a Black Steel 6490 I am willing to part with. Please send me a pm if you are intrested.
Thanks Wils, there is a lifetime license. For ages 0-9 it is $533.25. For ages 10-39 $872.25. For ages 40-61$785. People 62 and over are charged...
They are all temporary. Why else would they need to be renewed?
What is a MC?
I have a Black Steel 6490 deck hand rod I am willing to trade if you are interested.
The original location will remain open.
Beautiful rod. I hope your wife is not in pain and she heals.
I'm not quite in recovery. What is your email address?
I use Bad Donkey lead heads. They are designed to fish Big Hammer baits on the bottom. I have used up to a 7 ounce head without splitting the plastic.
Thanks for the report.
Super Seeker sold
Ron Z tails come in different sizes. What size are the ones you are selling?
I may have a few surface irons.
There will always be Rockfish but hopefully there will also be other species as well.
I have asked and been told spectra to spectra does not make for strong connections.
You caught them in Ohio? How far did you cast and row?
Bass Pro shop has spools of Power Pro on sale for half price. I prefer the yellow.
As long as you can see it the line will work. I personally prefer to fish an odd color. If I tangle I can tell which line is mine.
I use a Graphiter 800M. I would like to sell my Seeker Black steel 6490 probably for $140.
Do you have everything pictured?
What do you have left?
Well...how big are they?
I have one and have used it. I am not sure how it fits into my collection. It seems to share the same usages as my Calstar 800M and "other",80M
Try not to worry. The rumers about fingers being cut off are greatly exaggerated.
I fish, when I fish, Super Seekers 6470, 6470H, and a 6470XH. I also use Calstar Grafighters 700Hs. All of them have reel seats. I wish I fished more.
Please call the department of Fish and Game.
Why not just go into a recruiters office? You probably won't even have to make an appointment.
Thanks for the report. The tackle advice is also appreciated.
I have used them for Ling cod and rock fish. I think they provide bulk but minimal action making them an easy target for gamefish.
I use a 80m with a Lexa400. It is rated for 20 LB test to 40 LB test and I fish 40 LB test with it. I really like it. My understanding is all...
Thanks, it has been a long time since I updated my profile.
Where are you located?
It's a risk. We all have different tolerances for risk.
Rods for Sale in Rancho Cucamonga. Black Steel 6490 rated for 20 to 40pound test line$130.Cosmos700ML wrapped custom rated for 20 to 40 pound...
I have a Black Steel 6490 I am willing to sell for $125. I'm going to post it today. Factory wrapped.
It's going to be a thrill catching fish on a lure you made.
I have a factory wrapped 6470.
They look nice but they may be a bit light. If you could produce some 5 ounce and 7 ounce lures I think they would be effective in most conditions.
Hey Dan, you are looking healthy. I am glad your back has gotten better.
I thought the reels drag was best suited for 25th test line. So I got rid of my Newells and now fish smaller reels with stronger drags.
Thanks for the report. Are wolf eels tasty? They look as pretty as ling cod.
I don't want my line to disappear. I want to see it to avoid tangles.Somewhat related, I don't believe in matching the hatch. I typically want my...
Who knows what fish think? Line color may not matter in the same way to all fish. The comparisons to human vision may be a mistake.
Are they more than others?
I like these.
The lightest terminal tackle you can get to the bottom. Fight the fish not your tackle.
Thanks for the post Devil Dog.
I got one. I can text pics tonight.
Depending upon current and the tackle you fish you may fish a range from 3 ounces to 3 pounds. The light weights work well for shallow water and...
Please post a picture of the grouper.
No backing just a long topshot.
You can say no.
I think your oysters look a lot like clams.
I use an Albackore backpack but any brand will do.
I am leaving on a 3 day today. I have packed a large duffel with my clothes, reels, spare line, toiletries, drinks,and spare trays. I have a back...
Sounds like fun. I think there may be more space available.
You are going to want more than one set up.
I agree with Robert.
I am not aware of a open party boat that does not have a cabin.
So I am intrested in the Kroks. What is your PayPal info?
I also fish Lexa 400s on my 80m and 800m. What landings are you fishing from?
I really like my Calstar 800m and Gaftech 800m. They get the job done for up to a 7 ounce lead head or so. How much lead are you tossing?
It's a heavy blue fish set up. Yoyo outfits on the west coast are squiding outfits in the north east.
What weight are the krocks?
A couple weeks ago the surf was up to 7 feet of Imperial beach. At Oceanside harbour we were at 6 feet.
I may swim. The big waves thrill me.
I am glad you all got out on the water and enjoyed fishing. I'm sorry about where this thread is going.
Are you using a whip like fiberglass rod? If not you may be missing a beat.
Let's do the research. You first.
Thanks but Wikipedia is not a true friend. Meaning I won't trust my life to anything I read there. However, I appreciate you responding.
I have read and been told Killer whales may attack people in the wild. Is there a credible published source in which it is stated wild Killer...
Thanks for the post. I like the Palomar knot for tying a single hook to fluoro carbon. In that situation the Palomar has worked well for me.
Being run over by a boat has become a concern of mine. I hope there is a way to get out there and decrease the risk.
If you are good enough at following your line you can fish anything you want including green braided line. If you are that good you are probably...
But Buzzy the poster wrote it would be in the food.
That's a nice fish for anyone.
It is only audible. No image appears.
Did Alan Tani change out the handles?
Thanks for the report. You did well.
Sounds like you got poached.
I almost always find copies in Turners.However, I hope you can find a used copy.
I want these and sent a pm. Will you sell them to me?
Who can you sue?
I have one wrapped by Bad Fish. Great condition but bad pictures on phone. I'll send you a pm so we can chat.
Congratulations on the big fish. My understanding is the anglers who were fishing with you got an opportunity to catch large local tuna.
They seem like great baits to troll on the internet. I don't think size or color matters.
I have been told when a reel is maxed in that way you put more wear and tear on its internal mechanisms.
Penn Fanthom sounds about right.
Why do you want a two speed reel for 30 lb test line?
I will take it for $20. When can we meet?
I bought a used rewrapped rod. It has quickly become one of my favorites for inshore species. The softer action of an older fiberglass rod make it...
Not a bad bike at all.
I think the OP is writing about using good form. I do a few endurance sports and have noticed that when people tire thier form falls apart.
A longer lighter rod with a whip like action will help you fling a bait further. With a lighter rod you will have to pair it with a smaller reel....
People get excited and make mistakes. I doubt this will be the last time.
Thanks for the report. Did you eat it?
Good grief Charlie Brown! The fellow wants to carpool to his fishing trip. The trip is numbered 1809. The number 1809 is not the number of...
I am trying but I simply don't understand.
It is far easier to start out just fishing monofilament line.Braided line is more complicated to use and typically more trouble than it is worth...
I tie the uni to uni. However, I been informed no knot works combing spectra.
On my Lexa 40 lb test power pro or 50 lb maxcuarto works well.
Use a mono or fluoro leader and you should be fine.
Sir, you mostly own rock cod jigs. They are designed to get down fast but they have little action. Buy a few jojo jigs in 6x and 6x Jr size and...
I'm intrested but mulling it over.
Nice work. Thanks for the report.
Great stuff and often hard to find.
Depends on the child but with most 6 year olds one rod and two people is about right.
He looks so cuuuuuuuute!
That 900H may be a bit stiff for casting the lighter jigs. Perhaps, you could try lobbing a few cast with various weights to find out what will...
Perhaps, you all should let the managment at your favorite shops know and then boycott until there is change.
At some point the guy should be forgiven. He is not the first one to have a moral lapse.
Perhaps the pin head understood his role differently. Since he is the captain's "person" your best recourse would have been with the caption.
The Ranger is in Ventura.
The big bite on rock cod is not something any of us should be irrational about. Breath through your nose and leave some gear home.
Blue fin will often only bite on the light line 25lb test is nice at those times.
Is Pro gear making reels these days?
Try to think of others and be courteous. Gear not in use can be kept on the upper deck , bundeled out of the way, and stowed in bags. A...
Jet dog and I did a 3 day on the Ranger last year. The current was ripping and we needed 2 lbs of lead or more to hold bottom. We did well on...
I am spooling my reels with 25 through 50 lb test. The anticipation can be the best part.
I am packing my gear tonight. There are a lot of choices.
I am bringing 5 set ups. We are not tuna fishing. A light set up for whitefish and halibut. A few medium setups to toss swimbaits for rock fish...
I will see you there. Please make sure I have enough room for my rods.
I'm interested if you get more.
Fish rarely change much. I doubt all the ones willing to be enticed by a sliding sinker have been caught. Fishing styles go out of vogue. The...
Casting fluoro carbon when it is on the spool of the reel is tough and not necessarily needed. Fluoro tends to be stiffer and not manageable. On a...
Chark bait sells some spools of Sunline at a great price.
How do you carry, watch, and store all that gear on a trip? I would think it would get heavy and hard to keep an eye on.
65 lb or 80 lb test braided line with a topshot of 50 lb or 60lb test mono. Fish the yoyo jig.
Very nice reel at a great price.
I am amazed. If policing continues this will will be a great thing for fish stocks.
I bought a 100 lb rod. Now I wish I had time to fish wish it.
I have tried to buy them.
How do they work? Do I put one reel in each bag? How do I prevent my reels from being scratched?
What number do I text pictures to or call?
I have both 50 lb test maxcuarto and 40 lb test power pro on my reels. I have yet to notice a difference that matters to me.
Maxcuarto on my Pro Gear CS 500, 501,or 551s. All of them work with 50lb Maxcuarto or 40 lb test Power pro.
You don't need much drag for 20 lb test. You could probably stop at Wal-Mart and find a reel up for the task.
I sent a pm.
I can pick them up tonight.
So did they sell?
Unless something has changed the sx and mx have the same drag capabilities. With braided line as an option choosing between them is a matter of...
My Avet JX 6/3 is now old and reliable. I use it with 40lb test and can't justify replacement. It is still my first choice.
Using the lead head makes sense. I have used them with sluggo and optimum baits plastics. I don't really think it matters what plastics you use as...
That doesn't sound safe.
I like to use Bad Donkey lead heads. They are large enough to hold bottom and they do not split my plastic swim baits.
There is always a tradeoff with lines. Thicker lines have greater abrasion resistance than thinner lines typically. Thinner lines may cost more....
How about you post this in the classifieds and include a price?
Thanks for the report. I'm sure it was a great trip.
How many lures is it?
Fish them with confidence. They will all get bit.
Non drivers ID available through the DMV.
Do they ever bite people?
Selling sport caught fish is not legal.
I have not read anything from Captain G in many years. I know he stopped posting .
I might upgrade. Newer rods far surpass the one you own.
For the money I think the trips out of channel islands are a great deal.
There are a lot of options. What pound test line do you plan to fish and how much will you spend?
Is your 6470 a Black Steel or a Super Seeker?
Fish them until you can't.
It would probably hurt if you pull them off.
Wouldn't it take a lot to get banned?
I found the tip to be too stiff to toss a surface jig. It was also too stiff for most other applications. I eventually sold it.
Small bait can't carry large hooks.
LOL, when I go dark someone on BD always goes darker.
My understanding is that non biologicaly related males are one of the largest risk to the physical safety of offspring. Single mothers have it hard.
Today is April 1st.
Nice ling cod. Thanks for the report.
Its almost April.
They are sold by Turners and it is rated for up to 40 lb test. It does have a reel seat.
Chovyman has some great deals.However, if you want something different and you are in or near San Bernardino I have a fairly new 80m graphtech I...
Bring some light lead heads with strong hooks. There are some yellowtail out there.
The crew has been catching squid.
I use shimano products on my bike and fishing. The lighter products wear out faster but are some of the best products in thier class when new....
Is it normally so warm? It seems it would feel like you are swimming in a pool.
I often see the book in Turners.
Partnering with one of the guides on your own boat may be a quick way to learn locations and tactics. A related note is that when you fish the...
This has already been posted.
Some are sicker than others. I hope this guy can be dealt with in a compassionate humane way.
It's fairly cheap and easy.
Stopping addicts seems to be bit beyond the abilities of most captains. Please don't judge the captain to harshly for his lack of effort.
I am thinking about buying one though I don't have a use for it. I feel for the guys trying to sell used ones, they will be hard pressed to get...
I use a 800m for lures up to 5 ounces.
As long as it is not green it is worth at least thinking about.
Then CISCO is an option.
Mirage does up to 2 day. Somtimes the Pacific Islander will do up to 2 day trips. The Ranger does 2 and 3 day trips. If you book a 2 or 3 day trip...
I think they are too pricy when compared to the other choices. However, they make a great alternative to what everyone else is fishing here on the...
Get a passport or get on the Ranger when it sails out of CISCO.
Fish don't care about rain. Buy rain gear. Fish hard!
Speed is really about the inches returned per revolution of the handle. The gear ratios are not a a great measure of speed. If the people around...
Charkbait carries them and has a review. They are big in the North East.
I have a three day on the Ranger that month and I am standby for the other trips. We may sail together.
Sometimes they will not bite other times the current will move them of structure. Still other times they will be fished out. I have not learned of...
On my last fall 3 day on the Ranger 85 we left from Oxnard and went to San Diego to chase large Blue fin tuna. We were told to bring everything....
Mike has definitely had his brushes with problems. I hope the guy can get to right. Despite our mistakes we all deserve some happiness.
Probably, a yellow tail. They are related to Amberjack, wreck donkeys.
I'll fish 40 and 50. I really like it for 50lb test and a yoyo jig. It is light enough rod to cast the lure yet heavy enough it has not bottomed...
Just the other day I was thinking I had not seen anything by David Choate in a while. Thanks for the Video.
I think we are headed in the direction of Spam. However, we have not arrived as yet.
What all is included? Do you take PayPal? Will you ship?
Which outfit are writing about?
The cost of shipping a rod over 7 feet makes it less likely some one in California will sell you a rod. Many of us are in California.
They charge what people will pay. It's still less costly than doing it myself,then cleaning my kitchen, then getting rid of the waste, then...
Welcome back. I wish you serenity. BD can get interesting...
How many and how much?
Petty theft, unless it is your stuff.
Would it be better to post this in the classifieds? I suspect the reel will be sold.
Even if he is right spectra color is unlikely to reduce the number of fish willing to bite.
Who told you this?
The Seeker Hercules are too whip like for me. I found I had trouble setting the hook when bottom fishing.
Thanks Adrian. I didn't spool it myself but I do have a lot of room left.
I have 500 yards of MaxCuatro on an Avet LX. I think I can fit on at least another 300. I need a method of connection.
Maxcuarto is solid. I would like to add more of it to a reel. Splicing in a piece of hollow line to connect two solid lengths of line is a option...
I am thinking of tying a uni to uni. I don't know how to splice or have the gear. The splice would be an expensive connection which I can't be...
Is it possible to splice the 50lb test into hollow spectra? If so how would it be done? Am I better of simply tying it ? What line to line knots...
Looks like fun. Thanks for the report.
You might get a faster response if you traded them for money.
I like my 6470 Super Seekers paired with Avet 6/3 JX and Avet 6/3LX reels. My Calstar 700Hs are a close second.
I get my best deals on tackle here. I would go to the show to see all the stuff I did not know I needed.
If buying a different reel is not a best option perhaps you might think about changing the gearing on the reel. The Avet LX 4:1 used to be...
A 6.0 with 50 lb test is going to be tough to turn the handle on after you hook up.
I pray you heal soon. You have my best wishes.
I have owned the shorter ones and found them to fish a lot like fiberglass rods. Anything you can do with fiber glass you can use the Hercules for...
Try thier Facebook page after you call them at 310 538-0535
Those bass guys are Cray Cray...However, I would stop fishing.
I was tempted...
But did it have a real seat?
Jeff, you are probably right.
Hey Jerry, how are you? Are you around to sell sinkers? Text may be better than calling. 718 496-8237
Let it be. When the rod bends the epoxy cracks and water seeps in when you get the rods wet. It won't effect more than the cosmetics of the rod....
You can run 50lb test but with few exceptions you will recieve little gain as the reels drags will not put out enough resistance to benefit from...
There are no Albacore here!
I'm a vegetarian with the exception of fish. On my trips I just request a fish or vegetarian alternative. I have never been disappointed.
I you will ship I will take it.
The Ranger 85 does those trips. Rockcod, white seabass, yellowtail, and halibut are common targets. There may also be some whitefish. The blue fin...
How was it reconnected to form one line?
I am on the December trip. As I have been told you pays your monies you takes your chances. It is always a gamble but at some point you have to...
Great rods. A lot like a Grafighter but it weighs a bit more. Alin you are right.
For most applications a 7 foot rod is considered standard. I personally don't see the benefits of a shorter rod. An 8 foot rod is typically fine....
Great prices. The stuff looks good.
Flat falls might be worth trying.
I have seen them used as teasers for summer flounder on the east coast. They would probably work for halibut and rockcod in the west.
Bearings will fail on all reels, buying a different reel will not stop this. Perhaps, you should invest in more frequent professional maintenance....
I swam Bayshore on Monday. I had no problems.
Soooo, what are you selling?
How many of each do you have left?
Congratulations! Those are monsters.
Congratulations on the pregnancy.
Power pro comes in 500 yard spools.
Intresting first post. Intresting place.
My Accurate is 4:1 as we discussed. However, I do have a 6/3 Avet LX for sale. Are you intrested?
I have broken 50 lb test mono before. Is your question how hard can you pull?
I think cremains.
Eric, it is a fishing forum. Please try to relax.
I have owned a standard sx and jx 6/3. I fished 30 lb test on the sx and 40 lb test on the jx6/3. The sx has the same drag capacity as the mx. I...
If I spend enough time on BD all my gear seems to be antique.
I like Big Game for most uses. When I feel fancy I use Izor. For the pricey days I use Maxima.
I am not aware of a link between eating fish and HIV. However, I wish you the safest fishing possible.
I think people make do with what they have. If it is eat fish or starve they eat fish.
This is a $30 swim bait if you find a bargain. It may be difficult to find some one whom regularly uses them.
I feel very fortunate to live in the United States.
It is Christmas time.
Bad donkey lures jig heads attached to large big hammer swimbaits will probably be your most economical option into fishing large swim baits of...
Like a Ron Z ?
Bump, as the albackore bag seems functional I think it will be a great deal for someone who can see the practicality over aesthetics.
You can get bit with heavy tackle so if ya got it bring it. I would go with up to a 60lb test outfit with a low gear ratio reel and longer rod.
On average Is it cheaper to sail on an open party trip rather than pay a fair share on some one else's boat?
Is there a sears nearby?
Squid works well.
They are whip like.
Thanks, I want to do a Penn trip.
Beautiful pieces of art.
I like Pro gear reels. However, at the price you post there are too many other better options. Your best bet is probably to keep them.
Matt, what you wrote makes sense.
I find it easy to own too much gear. However, sometimes I have moments of clarity at these times I sell.
The OP is attempting to buy one. He might appreciate a seller over a reviewer.
So, is anyone selling one? Please pm the op.
Go buy the power handle.
I bought the 7.1. I plan to fish rock fish with it as well as other species. How hard can rock fish fight anyway?
Are you still selling braided line. If you are I am interested in the 50 lb test.
Yup, on mono and fluoro.
If he is on BD this may get interesting.
I am using Pro Gear reels. The ability to cast a long distance upswell allows me to get smaller lighter lures to the bottom before the current...
I would not go for a rod much shorter or longer than 7 feet. The yoyo set up traditionally is a 40lb to 60lb line deal. A longer rod can be a pain...
I like a rod with fast action and a lot of backbone. The fish is not hooked on the initial strike but doing the fight. Thus, I am trying to sink...
Multi colored line will not cause more tangles. However, when you are tangled it will be more noticeable than other lines and easier to untangle...
There is no accounting for taste.
I like fishing on the Mirage. Unfortunately, the sleeping quarters are reminicent of the Amistad.
That looks like a hard release. I they were fun to catch.
Don't let the bastards get you down. You seem like a cool guy. Why not stay Black?
I feel like this should not be funny but I am very amused.
Storing extra tackle in your room is probably your best bet. It is less likely to wind up adrift.
Sorry big guy but Fenwick rods, as far as I understand, simply are what they are. If you like it fish it. If not lend it to others or leave it at...
This could go badly very quickly. I hope it can be settled amicably.
I have seen others use a tool bag to carry their lead. It at least seems like a good idea and I have seen no problems yet.
I fished on it once on an introduction to long range trip. The boat seemed a tad crowded.
I want to do a Long range trip now. Thanks for the report.
When I was in grade school I ate a lot of moist cookies...good times.
That would be great for swim baits.
Congratulations on the shark.
I have read of people adding magnets.
My favorite Avet is a JX 6/3. I have had it for a while and always fished 40lb test on it. While I know there have been improvements this old reel...
I will follow this advice. Thanks everyone.
I have decided not to debate the matter with you sir. Good day.
How does anyone know what happens to released black sea bass? Do we just assume that those who submerge live and those we do not see submerge die...
The post test.
Was it a good day anyway?
Great catching Corey. Thanks for the report.
I have met the owner of Calstar. While I like the product I can understand not buying the rods based upon the service.
I own a few Super Seekers and Calstar Grafighters. In the range the original poster asked about my Super Seekers and Calstars are as follows; SS...
Nice catch. Lobsters and the things which eat them tend to go together.
I originally wanted to know what the fish bit and what pound test line she was using.
Strong sleuth work there LJ.
Yes, discretion is used. Hopefully, with a small d. However, there are always individuals inclined to go above and beyond while doing there jobs....
It is probably not possible to catch all the lawbreakers all the time. However, I am sure law enforcement does the best they can.
If it fits it ships.
It is a very early model composed of Penn internal parts .
Please post pictures of the reel.
The only way to know is to talk to the people who work there.
Calling the landing will get you the most up to date information.
The halibut catch out of channel islands has been really low this year.
The preferred rig seemed to be a sabiki rig tipped with squid set a drift about 5 feet below a large float. The bites seemed occasional at best.
I have been told Channel Islands at June. However, a chartered trip guided by the captain is your best bet.
No problem. We all make them.
Your seeker might be a calstar.
Funny! I am glad you can see the humor now.
I hope you can focus on the positive enough to truly enjoy your trip. However, I feel your pain.
Road bike ?
I fish green Big Game.
Thank you for the advice a word to the wise is sufficient.
I have seen deckhands follow their lines and do really well with green braided line.
At least you learned. Try bringing multiple small spools of line on a multi day trip. You can change topshot far more often and experiment to see...
That would depend upon the qualities of the mono leader. Questions that come to mind are how long is the leader? How much line is off the reel and...
Thanks for the report. I'm glad you had a good time.
Do what you find to be normal for you.
What price are you thinking about?
Send it to Avets.
Kenny does great work.
I have fished with Sheki. He knows a lot, is kind, generous, and polite. I truly enjoy fishing with him. Dave you would miss out if you never...
How heavy will your lead head be?
What a memory to make.
Would you rig it on heavy fluoro?
How many heavy irons? Will you make a deal for just those?
The sx and mx have the same drag capabilities. Both work well up to 30 lb test line. Deciding between them is a matter of preference.
That's amazing. GLWS.
I get tired simply hearing his voice.
I don't ever want to be this guy. I hope my friends would help me if I become this guy.
It seems to be sold out.
Great write up.
Thanks it does. I want a few more now.
Ugly sticks seem to last forever.It gets hard to justify replacing them.
I will venture true folks in Utah live largely serene lives.
I think I want at least one to cast jigs with. Please compare them in size to my cs series or my Avets? I'm finding it difficult to understand the...
I fish an Avet sx sized reel for 25 and 30 pound test line. My favorite 40 pound test reel is a Avet JX 6/3. The range is broad and your options...
What pound test line? What size fish? Where are you fishing? How long are your trips?
Buyer beware. Perhaps, you should do your own math in the future.
I love how children can be re directed.
I'm glad it worked out and I believe it was way more nerve racking in person than it could be conveyed to a 911 operator.
I am trying to ask if you have enough stretch in your set up. Braided line and fluoro do not stretch much before they break. A carbon rod, braid...
From the reel. Are you tying braided line to fluoro then to the hook?
Thanks for the report. Are you connecting braided line directly to fluoro ?
Thanks for the report. I have had great days fishing Big Hammer swim baits and Optimum swim baits of the boats sailing out of Brooklyn. West coast...
It seems like a great time for everyone.
I'm amazed fish that size work so well as trolling bait.
If only I lived closer...
I have not heard back from you but if you are willing to sell your large baits for $2.00 each as advertised I will buy in bulk.
This may not end well.
Dan he is a grown man.
I am of the perspective the crew and captain will attempt to please the majority of the common anglers. If the social contract does not work for...
I have never had that problem. While I have never thought to much about it,when most folks are catching I am as well. I have never had to throw...
I like 50lb test green big game about 50 yards. For a knot I go with the Big Sands.
65 is marginally thicker and you may be able to pick tangles out a bit easier than 50. However, you will lose line capacity. It's a very slight...
You may be over thinking this choice. There are benefits and drawbacks to most options. However, as long as your braided line is heavier than your...
It will work.
Gear won't buy you skill but time spent practicing can be priceless.
My people, my people!
Are you selling your JX and if so for how much?
If I have to engage in a legal battle I think damage has already been done. At that point I would be trying to suffer as little more as possible....
Whatever is on sale at Wal-Mart.
What is the largest size you have?
Life is short, the cost difference is small enough that I fish whatever I prefer.
I fish them all. However, I prefer Izor line for most applications. That is with the exception of my yoyo outfit. Big game 50lb test in green is a...
New York, New Jersey, or Boston accents?
Nice catch. I find them tasty but supposedly a bit high on their retained mercury levels. I have never had one jump.
The Local Angler is the latest book. I sense it is more geared towards boat owners.
I have seen them for sale in Turners located in San Bernardino. You should probably call before you go.
Nice fishing with you the other day. See you around Gerry.
My reading of post on this site indicates to me the big blue fin caught on sport boats are cut up and divided among the passangers. If I am...
See you there Wils.
I sent the money.
I liked it when I could just buy any Avet and believe I got the best reel in that size.
You posted you have a 6480 for sale. Could you please send me a picture 718 496-8237
Yes and no. It expires next year.
I hope it is the one that gets bit.
I do think the Hercules 70h is too much of a whip to use for tuna.
Sir, you have a lot of gear.
Great report! I now want to go fishing again.
I am praying for us all. I'm glad you and your family are strong and in the fight.
Thanks Ray. I understand.
If he was not up to anything negative should he have known? Meaning would it have been common sense?
I like a long plastic swim bait on a BadDonkey leadhead. Typically,I use a bass plastic.
It's a nice reel but I strongly suspect the original poster has a skill set that will work with any set of tools.
They want to make money. Someone has to pay the cost.
A snagged bunker is allowed to swim until a game fish eats it.
I think it will be a great trip.
The Calstar 700H is one rod I have used for this task but the 800m is the rod I want to use. My last trip out I used a 700mh, 700l and super...
Which ever boat fits your schedule and your budget.
Great deal. These should go quickly.
I just love rock coding with light tackle. Thanks for the report.
That's how I took it.
That will get you in hot water.
Great attitude. It was nice of you to offer a ride. I am glad it worked out.
On the troll you might want to tighten the drag.
Times have changed. A few years ago the 40lb outfit was the standard for fishing the Lupe. Based upon the reports 50 or 60 is now the minimum. I...
I put less used tackle in with my clothes. It all does not need to be on deck.
Not to drift too far from the point but I doubt people from PETA will like anything posted on this site. Perhaps, it might not be worthwhile to...
It is not a problem. Many people will splice in new sections of braided line as needed.
Great write up. I don't even like hunting but after reading this I am reconsidering.
How much does each buck tail weigh?
The regular sx works well for that line class.
There are a lot of great choices in the 25lb class you are looking into. There has been some great advice posted so far. I'm sure you will do well...

Are you fishing for them on 25lb, 30lb, 40lb, 50lb or 80lb test line? I have used all. It has always been dependent upon the conditions. What...
I like Izor xxx.
Elreytut, you may become my first stop for lures.
Seems to be a warranty issue. Perhaps, you could mail it to them.
But would you actually say that to all Asians?
Please keep in mind this is a fishing forum. Expecting simple answers for complex world problems may be a mistake.
I used to love fishing but now I find the fights on online forums so much more fulfilling....Plus, I do not nor have I ever liked football.

The search feature will give you some reviews.
You might need to buy your own boat.
I really like getting new gear so it's hard for me to say no...
You will want your backing to be of higher pound test than your top shot.
Is it a fair statement to say you knowingly did the wrong thing, got caught, and don't care for the punishment?
I like most if not all of the brand name lines. Some last longer than others. When they are new most are great.Take your pick.
BadDonkey used to make some but I can't find him.
I want to use bass swim baits for ling cod and rockfish. Where can I find a supplier for lead heads that won't split the plastic? Thanks folks.
Are you using line that was manufactured a while ago? Your description of the line leads me to believe the product has been exposed to the...
I can't.I just can't....
Thanks, Danny is old and tough as leather.
It's a beauty that would probably treat me like a beast. How big and strong does someone fishing that length rod have to be to avoid hurting...
I'm suggesting you start high and then go low.
With smaller fish I can often set the hook and move the fish 10 or more feet the instant I hook up. Once the fish decides to fight I revert to low...
I use high speed until I can't .
What rod will you use in the future?
Thanks Mark. I thought the SX and MX were identical in drag capabilities. However, I'm trying to be less argumentative....even on social media.
You might want to consider fishing 25lb test line on the Avet SX. The reel will handle up to 30lb test well. Typically, if fish will bite 20lb...
Typically, the yoyo jig will get the most bites. However, catching fish on the surface is probably more fun.
With use the epoxy around the guides cracks and water seeps in, rust occurs. Typically it causes no problems. Your best bet is to let it...
Hello, I would like to buy some jig heads from you. I live near Rialto. How much are the 4 and 6 ounce heads?
When I find myself getting upset about what other people write on the internet I realize I am spending too much time and effort thinking about...
Go with a bit of both ringed and non ringed. A pulled back Uni or San Diego jam works a lot like a ringed hook. However, if you can't get bit on a...
These are unusual times. Everything from salmon to cow tuna may be local.
You are likely to wind up with far more gear than you need. However, that is a great thing. Hooks don't go bad.
Thanks for the report. BD seems to have a lot of fishing and fighting.
Some of the long range boats have gear list you can Google. Why not try there?
What did you say to them when you were face to face?
I like you all and your ability to focus on small errors. Unrelated to that, thanks for the fishing report.
I use 40lb test power pro on smaller reels. I think I have over 450yards. I doubt I will ever be spooled.
If it will catch striped bass it will probably work for yellow tail.
I think the higher rated braid ratings are often just marketing hype. Hopefully, one of the manufacturers will chime in.
When using thinner line such as "spectra" you will have to double and sometimes even triple the number of turns you put in the knot.
Strongest of moves Clyde! Great catch!
The spider hitch and the surgeons knot are the same. I tie either one and have a double line going to the hook.
Avets have heavy spools. The bigger the reel the heavier the spool. This is not a bad thing just something that takes adjustment. That said I...
Your heavy iron is not very heavy. Try a heavy 7X with that reel.
Pro Gear is in business now. Contact them about a repair. The worse they can say is no. However, if they refuse to assist you in correcting the...
Dave, please remain above the fray. Internet fights rarely seem to have winners. Instead they just drag more people down.

Well written John. "..No one is obligated to educate you at their expense". Great quote, I will use it.
So you started another one in the same vein. Why do you now expect a different outcome?
If you want the managements perspective perhaps you should write a moderator directly. If you want the perspectives of random people online you...
My biggest concern with a small bait is being able to cast it well. Light line and long rods are most likely to be used because the line is light...
I fish 40lb test power pro on some very small reels and I think there is very little danger I will be spooled. On my Avet SX sized reel I think I...
Bob Sands in Van Nuys or CISCOs are some places to pick up gear. Call either one. Where do you plan to fish from?
One additional note. I typically fish a mono leader shorter than the length of the rod I am using. I also fish fairly light braided line. This...
There are a lot of options at this pound test. Like Sigmund said a 25lb outfit may be a better choice.
It used to be the standard.
I use the lightest jig head I can get away with. Most often I can get away with less than 5 ounces if I fish the bow and cast upswell of the boat....
That is really nice of you Jaime.
You can buy gear at the shops at the landing.Your striped bass gear will work well for yellow tail.
I like the idea of an Avet as well. It's in the middle price range and has a solid resale market. A single speed MX would be a great starting...
Surface jigs aren't worth much to me. If they are heavy I will take them.
If they are heavy I will take them.
I'm trying to determine if they are surface lures or will they work for rock cod.
How much do they each weigh?
Thanks for the report. I love the before and after pictures.
Big soft plastic baits work well for rock cod and ling cod but everything works well for them. It's like enticing Bluefish to bite.
Ksong, who carries your rods on the west coast?
I don't think one reel will do it all well. Pick a 25/30 or 40/50 pound test outfit. Catching tuna and calico bass can be done on the same...
Extremely hard to find.
I prefer to fish a spectra loaded reel with a leader about as long as the rod. My leaders vary in lb test. My lightest are 25lb. My heaviest are...
I would bring the heavier gear as a back up for the days when the current is really ripping. The added abrasion resistance of 50lb test is nice as...
The Hercules are whip like. I can not recommend them as yoyo rods.
I fish ProGear reels for 25 and 30lb test line. I'm still using the new classic series (cs). Most days that is the cs500 or cs501. On days I want...

I'm sorry. I didn't realize you already owned all the equipment you wanted for the trip. Have a great time.
I know it's a matter of personal preference but I'm not a fan of Shimano products. The reels and rods I own are rapidly becoming outdated, as such...
Spectra to fluoro connections don't offer much give. Also, when I backlash spectra I'm almost ready to cry. Untangling thin spectra takes forever....
Interesting position to be in. Many of the premium reels in that size class will fish 30lb test line equally as well. I would fish one of the bass...
Which outfits do you already own?
Your jx raptor will fish heavier line fine. Perhaps, you should bring a few outfits you can fish 40 and 50lb line on.
I am glad you get out there and enjoy the resource.
Rewrapping the rods with high quality guides should solve your problem. You will save money and have custom rods.
Great catch! I was on Schwab when I was there. I worked a lot of hours. Dusk till dawn days were common.
How do guides break off when rods are cleaned after each use and then safely stored?
I have good vision and no idea what you are writing about.
On the West Coast people used to put mono on first. Most of us stopped doing it years ago. I'm sorry we haven't been of much help.
I'm of the perspective that Dave Hanson provides a coaching service. He gets people better on their own equipment. Customers can pay to improve...

I use a backpack style tackle organizing system. On trips over 3 days the extra tackle is put in trays and stored in the duffle bag I use for...
I am interested in future trips.
You might want to call the landing.
Seems like you had a good fishing trip. Hopefully,you do better catching next time.
Congratulations! Thanks for the report.
If you fillet the fish the DFG agents cannot determine the size of the fish it came from. The conclusion will be that they came from a short fish.
Thank you. I am sure that someone really can use it and I doubt they are cheap.
Thanks for the report. Somewhat related to the report are boat limits. My experience has been that catching boat limits benefits anglers who...

I have used the heavier ones for stripers and bluefish in New York.
Repeated message on my part.
Check your spectra for frays as you are returning from trips. However, I suspect you will get 10 or more years out of your spectra.
I don't believe color matters much. They often work on the drop or with a medium retrieve. If you retrieve them too fast they will flip over and...
Sounds like a great trip.

Try a midweek trip out of Oxnard. Right now you have a good shot at White Sea bass and flatfish. The Mirage or any other boat would be great.
Striped bass, Calico bass, Sand bass, White sea bass, or Black sea bass? What conditions? Which coast?
I use them both. The newer Power Pro without the waxy covering works great. Izor line is an old standby. The fish don't seem to care and they...
Pick your poison.The cs500, cs625 and all other cs reels all have the same drags. As a result I will often fish the same pound test lines on them....
Go back to the tackle store and have them teach you some knots.

I don't need as many reels as I own. I just like them.
Not much line at all. If the fish makes it to the rocks the fight is over: you lost.
They are 9foot6 inches and 8feet. Shipping will cost a lot.
Thanks Kev. I own more than a few yoyo jigs;most of them get bit. None seem to have much action.

I used to fish a JX 6/3 on mine.
If you are catching fish that are not game fish you can have more than 2 hooks.
Do not turn the handle when line is going out. If a fish is pulling drag wait until it stops to turn the handle.
Have the top brands of braided line become so alike that choosing one is now just a matter of prefference?
Are you going to return it?
I like the replacement parts. If you change your mind you can sell unmodified gear a lot easier than customized rods and reels.
I like them for tuna. They work best when I am fishing 30lb test line or lighter.
Despite my past problems with early generation power pro I'm thinking of rigging my smaller reels with the latest evolution of power pro braided...

I grew up fishing for them in Brooklyn and I often missed hooking them. Looking at your pictures it seems like you catch a whole lot. Great post.
I love my 6470s and think they are great for tuna trips. However, I rarely get to use my 6470XH. I wish you bigger fish than the ones I hang. Good...
Thanks ASH. I agree with you about Pt Loma Seafood. Surf fishing might be a lot of fun.
Great ideas! Thanks gents. I'm going by myself and so I have some freedom.
I will be spending a work week in San Diego (october 8th through the 11th) and would like to know what the fun options are. I probably won't get...
I'm thinking there will be a whole lot more than 16 when you get on.
From what I have read the line is good even if it is cloudy. I would fish it. You can always buy more on the boat if there is a problem.
Very cool Mike! I hope you slay em.
The only guarantees I know of come with death and taxes. However, I hope your trip is more fun than that.
It's probably the best choice. Not perfect but the best one available.
It really does not make a difference.You can get a little more line with 50lb test but not enough to matter. You can get a little more hold out of...
I am from Brooklyn NY and have owned a pistol in North Carolina and now California. I have also moved back to New York a few times. If you are...
You ate now let the bugs eat...
If I fish a different boat will I catch larger yellow tail and will the bait be better? If so please inform me of which boats to fish.
The fish are not always on the paddy. Often they are swimming around it. Trolling near the paddy gives you a chance to pull them closer.
I gave em Sluts with Nuts, Big Butts, and others. I don't think they even noticed. Some guys will take anything....
Has anyone here ever been the roommate from hell?
I also have AlbaKore bags. They are no longer made but if you find a good used one you should pick it up.
I may pick up a few more mags. However, this stuff is pricy. I don't know how you guys do it.
I own a SKB. It weighs about 22lbs before I put anything in it. It's just to heavy to be practical. Carrying it or shipping it kills.
Tues, I would but then he might want more than a tip...
While I give cash I'm got giving much more...
Carl, strangly your face looks different in most of the mags. No worries I'll send them to you for "autographs" anyway.:rofl:
Thanks Saluki, I...
On one of the charter boats I fish on I found the crews porn stash. It seemed to be a lot of the barely legal stuff.
I'm thinking of taking thier...
Tell them the situation. Unhappy clients means no tips or returns. Most captains and crews will understand that.
I joined the Corps in 1995. I have now had a few years of school and work after the service. In your shoes I would stop arguing with the guy. "...
I'm with Carl ...to a point. I have a 2.5 day leaving on Monday. I'm bringing from 20lb to 60lb on this trip. Go with a fluoro leader of 25lb test...
Bring the 40 or a 50 if you have it. Kelp paddies can go wide open.
pm sent on a SKB 7200
Been there done that. I talked to the captain and now boycott a boat I will not mention.
Last minute gear at the landings. The earlier you get there the more you spend.
This is all I am hoping for...
Great fishing and great report!
I really like that boat. Expect great service and a great time
Fish cleaning: If they are cleaned on the boat expect $5 a fish. If you get them...
Great deal! You can never have too many rock cod jigs.
They must think I'm trying to steal something :shakin:or maybe it's because I'm good looking :worship: but the folks at Turners always pay close...
Try the hood...just go during daylight.

Suicide is a result of a mental illness or lack of immunity that deserves the same respect and help as other problems. I've yet to see someone...
I talked to the seller. It is a great deal
You can pay a lot for really sharp line clippers or you can use nail clippers and deal with some fray.
Thanks Gents, I stand corrected (and glad to be wrong). Some people did survive the Erik.
I don't think of it like a pick up game of basketball...
Lately a few folks with few post have been posting a lot of reports about how bad things can go on a fishing trip. I've witnessed some things go...
I sent you a pm. If you get back to me tonight or very early tuesday morning this can work. If not ...
I think it will got hot no matter what the setting.
Your trip on BD may have just begun. Please hold on tight...
I don't know about great....All that hair gives me envy:rofl:
Brad, I know him...
He is a BD member, as I am sure you know. Somewhere on this board he and I are pictured together.
He goes by Frank
I'll tuna fish with them this month and post pictures after.
Thanks G. I should know better. Even I like pics.
No comments? Next time I will post pictures. Rock cod are cute.
