    Federal 9mm at walmart

    I just left the walmart in Orange and they had 100rd boxes of Federal 9mm 115grain fmj priced at $25/box but at checkout they were $18.97 each. I had to do a double take at the box to make sure the specs were right but just giving you guys a heads up if you're in the area.

    Fred Hall LB vs. DM

    I go to both because I have problems. But LB is bigger and better for above mentioned reasons. What it boils down to basically is that all the sd guys go to LB. But hardly any of the LA guys come down to DM.

    What reel to buy..

    Here's my take on talicas 8,10, and 12... 8 is kinda small. Not too small for a 25-30# reel, but it's only a little bigger than say a metaloid 5ii or avet sx and you dont really need a 2 speed reel in that class anyway. 10 is an ok size but at 13# max strike drag (20 at full) that's kinda low...

    Shimano 300ej what can this reel do

    I've caught 25# yellowtail, 32# yellowfin tuna, 15# dorado. In addition to bass and halibut. I have 50# spectra to short 20# fluoro leader, usually set to 5.5# of drag on a G.Loomis 12-25# rod. Not even near the drag max so I'm sure it can handle even bigger, so you mean what can it not do?

    My new pliers wrapped by Chad Gee on BD!

    Quick death for tuna once it's caught reduces the enzymes and not so tasty things getting into the meat while it flaps around on deck dying. Also less flapping around on deck means less blood everywhere. That's a sick spike! I'll have to get me one of those!

    My favorite reel for that class. 50# spectra to 30#fc leader. I've handled up to 35# yellows with no problem. Light weight so you can fish it all day and not tire out your arm from just holding the rod but plenty of power.

    Chilean Sea Bass

    Looks like edamame (soy beans) to me, not lima beans. Also fwiw, most restaurants substitute Alaskan black cod for Chilean seabass now. They taste almost the same.

    What age did you start fishing?

    Probably since I could walk. But I remember summers when I was about 10-12 my dad would drop me off at the half day running out of Belmont Pier in the morning and I would ride a double half day hanging out with the captain (his good friend), then get picked up 12 hours later. First overnight...

    if you're in the IE, why take a 1.5 day from OC to fish the same waters that 3/4 days are fishing in SD?

    Top Gun 80, building confidence one angler at a time!!!!!

    Wow, that sucks. Courtesy and service are big ones for me so I'll be staying away. Although I remember being on that boat as a kid and I didn't cry, so it must not have been that bad back then (15 years ago).

    dumb question about shimano crucial

    As long as you're not chucking the 8oz sinker 30 yards out, I don't see what the problem is. But then again I haven't tried it myself. I use a 8-25lb rated CS 195 and put upwards of 8oz lead on there for bottom fish and it works fine. I chuck it out there 10-20 yards on occasion too.

    Avet sx or mx and which rod?

    I have an SX on a custom Calstar 195 7'6" 8-25lb rated rod that I use for basically everything you described. Super fast tip with 50# braid and I can feel every little tap on the other end of the line. My favorite setup by far. Has more than enough line capacity to fish 250ft of water for...

    Deckhands on the Dolphin are nicer. Probably because they get alot of first timers on that boat for some reason (maybe bc of the name?) New Seaforth seems to have a loyal following among more seasoned anglers who don't have the time to get out on longer trips, so it's a totally different...
