Good stuff J!
Lots of clueless idiots. Had a pull very close yesterday and drop lines in while we were on a marlin. Thought he was gonna run our fish over at...
Awesome creatures! Thanks for posting.
Nice, we wanted one of those today too. Wasn't meant to be though.

Same area for us. 20 tuna and 1 dodo. Left em biting at 11.
Ive fished straight 80lb hollow on conventional jig rods for years with zero issues...
Knots on anything up to 150 here. Crimps after.
Have one and its a good 40lb blank.
Solid fish there Erik, wtg!
Damn J, nice score!
Sick report Ali! Those are some tasty looking reds
Yep, I use the 12 dollar home depot micro butane torch. Have welded thousands of rings and have only had to replace the torch once.
Wow, thats insane!
Have used rosco rings, but didnt like the sizes and wire thicknesses they offered. So I make my own. I use either stainless tig wire or ss...
Awesome pics! thank you for sharing
Yep, they love spannies. Nice fish!
I've seen 4 or 5 at the bank. All catching.
Looks like a good time. Would like to try an swba event some day!
I have an 869xh hybrid and the fuji sic mnsg guides work well.
Tranx hg rocks for both surface iron and yoyo!
Killer report, sorry about the treble:eek:
Not sure if the body is any different, but I always switch the hooks out to owner stinger trebles. They work nicely
The drive south thru temecula was very strange this morning:D
Snow in murrieta!
Congrats on the great trip. That is an amazing score on hoos!
Sorry for your loss.
Looks like a blast! Awesome pics
Those are gonna be some great memories! Congrats!!!!
That rod is amazing. I need to learn how to do that!
Good looking wraps!
I like the hybrid 869xh. Great all around stick. I use it for surface iron to yoyo jigging. Works well for yt and wahoo too!
Soft hypalon for my sensitive armpits!:D
That would take me a couple of years, lol !
The iswb line are great rods. Really like rainshadow.
It's a weeehooooo! Cool pic
Awesome vid. Skin fishing is a good time!
That is an awesome pic!
Crazy! Awesome report like usual!

Good looking vessel there. Congrats
Nice local yt!
Cool looking boat. glws!
Some good bass fishin there! Thanks for posting
Cant go wrong with either reel. I do like the maks though!
Cool video, I enjoyed it. Hopefully more of the same next year.
Nice mixed batch!
Awesome, season is still going!
Not sure of any cheaper rods, but both the 945 and 946 are fantastic swimbait rods. The 945 is my fav.
Sick rod Wiseguy!
Those night Jacks are a good time!
Wow, nice fish
Congrats, Nice fish!
Wow, what an amazing year. Your report was incredible. Yellowfin in November

Very nice Jim!
Good one Joe, enjoyed the read!
Thats a nice score!

Way to get it done Tito!
Saw one of those probably 18 years ago off oside. I didn't know they were uncommon. Interesting!
Awesome report Cory!
I've worn out a couple lunas, good while they were working.
Nice, think I am going to try one out!
Some pompano Dorado from hb. Good bait. Small pieces of sardine on a tiny hook work well to catch them if you have a small school...
Yep, flying squid. Always see strange things out there![ATTACH]
That's awesome! Nice fish!
On jigs, I like to run 80lb fluoro doubled up to the jig. Have Landed fish with one of the legs holding on.
I use the 600n, works great
"When you say "insert fluorocarbon into spectra", I am assuming you are using a splicing needle for it. Am I correct?"
Needles are not needed at...
Really like my Phenix phd869xh, 8"6". Matched with a tranx. Casts a 7x a mile. No use for my ulua anymore...
I'd definitely opt for the 700mh over the 700m for 40 lb all day long.
Great recap Jeff, thanks for sharing!
Mainly refers to using pre made short top shots with hollow line. Top shot is secured with either a serve or nail knot etc. There are spliced...
I agrees. Love both of mine.
That was awesome!
Scrambled egg and birdsh*t have always done me well!

Amazing how that bottle traveled more than 11 miles per day to reach Saipan. Which is roughly 5300 nm from the coast of Baja... How awesome is...
Wow, Saipan.. That's awesome. Will definitely be looking for the details on that!
Braze with silver solder. Not gonna hurt them. If you look at the 7691dt's they are brazed shut..
Not bad at all! Nice fish
Good stuff Fishy!
Thanks for the good read Sir!
Beautiful fish, that why I like to fish Alijos. First bait could be a 10 lber, next can be a 75...
That video was COOL!
Terrific report as usual. Looks like a blast!
Nice report Jerry! Congrats on the 100lber
Its 865 nm straight shot.

Looking forward to updates, have a good trip!

Excellent report Tunaslam! Looked like a good time.

20 cows in 3 days, not too shabby. Thanks for the brief report!
Single wrap, double foot guides on all mine. No issues
Awesome report! Way to go on the skin fish!
Wow, amazing trip for sure!

Wow, amazing trip for sure!
Sounds like a killer trip, way to go David!
That is a huge number of hoo for 1 day. I wonder how many were hooked to land 100... Im jealous!
Excellent info, gonna pack some iron for sure!
That fishes big brother is on my to do list... Congrats nice fish!
How I used to fish a lot out of Oceanside... Skip the receiver bait and stop on an offshore paddy and load up on mini macks. Ive noticed the...
All depends on reel size, on reels with limited capacity I use 40lb backing with zero worries about it.
Beautiful fish on 30 lb!
Fun looking trip , thanks for the write up!
Funny, Ive been thinking about this idea for a LONG time!
Badass report Darren! Need to get me some..
Maybe look into cerakote gun coating. Very tough finish and multiple colors to choose from. If going the anodizing route id go type 3 hard anodize.
Nice fish! Wtg on the release!
Purdy, it pops
Fantastic trip report Laurens. Tough fishing down below seems to be norm lately.
Sorry to hear about the slow fishing. Always next time!
Looking good Lance! Need to catch me a yellow like that!
Fished a 10 day 4 or 5 years ago in nov/dec. The rocks were dead so we made an inside route south. We caught tuna or yellowtail 8 out of the 10...
I'm using a phenix hybrid 869xh on mine. Cast a2z's nicely on my last trip. Casting the tranx is effortless!
This is incorrect, the 600n hold quite a bit more as it is the same width as the 500. Much taller though
If they are disassembled they are legal as a rebuild kit...
Damn, that's a nice AR15 pistol! Dianne Feinstein will not agree with me!
Just got off the shogun and we had some of the best bait I have seen in years.
You guys stole my idea, I was gonna try and corner the market at $10 each. Buy 5 and get the 6th free...

Ken also picked off a nice tuna on that bird school.
Sippin some cold ones as the latitude decreased.
Not only wearing boots, but his precious little toes were also wrapped in flex wrap for more protection:rofl:

Picked one up to try out on hoo next week. 15 days on the shogun! Tranx/phenix 869xh is gonna be a killer combo!
Save a couple for me too, I leave in 6 days!!!
Use a 10' plus ulua nowadays. But for years fished a calstar 6480 8' 30-60 glass rod. A good jig slinger can get plenty of distance with an 8'...
Those is Noiiiiice!
Think Ive seen the same thing on river monsters. Type of rod would change. Go from a ringed rod to a roller or something like that.:shithappens:
I think every company has a little bit of that going on right now. I have an 80% on order from ares and got a lead time of march-august..wtf
I think Bruce is going to have some dedicated fly trips down to mag bay on the fortune this year!
Have one, very nice. They machine lowers for dozens of other companies too...
Cool video Bruce. Makes we want to get back into fly fishing!
Heard this clip earlier... Makes me laugh every time.
Finishing up my phenix hybrid 869xh build. Will let you know how it works out for surface iron later this month on the 15 shogun trip. Think it...
Mine is on the brink, need to do this upgrade soon. Have 2 toro 50s too that I need to do...
Same here, have had good luck with joebobs
Always fun on the iron! Nice fish
sorry reel is sold, and its more of a 30lb reel.
x2, will be using an sx later this month with this technique...
Nice, blues are always fun to C&R!
Good luck out there Min. Keep us posted on the fishing!
I keep hearing about smaller reels lacking i n capacity... Well I just finished up loading my new 20se with 800 yds of 100lb jb hollow. I say go...
Have one on order, gonna machine it myself. No paper work is a plus.
Stories like this scare me from going solo...
4x mustad demons in 6/0 and 7/0. Perfect for dines.
yuppppp. Tarbaby color
850 yds... not bad at all
And a bunch of albamacore!
That's huge! Congrats
Good stuff Tommie, do you have to have a membership to fish there?
Not a fan of wide reels
I say go against the grain and get a 20. Taking 3 next month...
Amazing job on Angel Eyes!
Exciting news, 4 Fridays from today I am loading up for 15....
x2, excellent rods.
Good lookin stick Wiseguy! like the colors
Id opt 2 speed. 5 day to the lupe has a possibility of 100+ yellowfin. Try the classified board for a near new 2 speed. Plenty in your price...
Hmmm Inside job...
Nice! 40 and 50 lb for sure. Don't want to be messing around with these fish with 20...
Oh it will, spring is gooooood for hoo!
damn that's a hog!
Ive never broken nor cracked a sic ringed guide. Most of my guides are fuji...
Video is awesome Bruce. Nice bfts!
Badass vid! Crazy finding an AK like that.
But silicon carbide look cool!!!!
Not to worry, Clownifornia will just pass what the feds can't...
Damnnnn, U guys whacked um... Way to go!
Good stuff Spike!
Your grip work is fantastic! And so is everything else!
Yep, uni/uni works good in spectra/spectra. Dont like it at all spectra/mono or fluoro...
Midnight Dloop yellow bite @ the bank!
Bring them and try them. Just make sure they mind their own business running in the spread. Wahoo will hit them.
Slight chance, hoo can be had at alijos in July. W.ill the trip make it too the rocks? That's another story..
Awesome line of swimbait rods!
See you in April!:hali_olutta:
Ive heard there are a couple types of AJ's, 1=shitty eating, the other=excellent?
Buddy had one connected to his leg... connected to a small yft...
THis is what I meant, when targeting big yellowfin and wahoo not so desired. Any other time I'm fishing I am all in!
Paulus has the toro tamer tests up today.
The small size kicks ass for albies and small yft out of san diego. Always troll with them on private boats.
Junk fish on a long range boat. Lots of them @ hurricane bank.
Its used to hold a leader of mono or fluoro that has been inserted into hollow spectra. Then secured with a serve or knail knot.
I will have 1 rigged with 130 and 1 with 100 in April. Both loaded with 700 yds of 100jb spliced to a short section of 130 jb. No prob at all...
No I meant smaller. Shogun does cruise 1/4-1/2 knot slower then the bigger boats.
Shogun handles rough weather just fine. For longer trips they convert the port side fish hold to another couple hundred scoop live well.
We will have at least 7 full days of fishing on this trip. I was on the shoguns last trip to the hb. We left sd @ 9am on a Friday and arrived at...
I use a beiter Winder profi. They are da bomb.
Im partial to a full length xxxh super seeker. Excellent stick!
Ive tried on two or three occassions dragging a pink one and have not been hit on any of the tries. The trips were kinda slow on the wahoo side...
uni-uni spectra to mono/fluoro= no bueno. Many many failures. This is like a 60% knot
learn the "tony pena" knot. Skip the swivel. Youtube has vids...
Good looking salami flies Jeff. Gonna have to try some of those out.
Bought a phenix hybrid 869xh blank for that very reel. Will try it out in april on my 15 day...
Same here, grandfather was a pretty high up in the Navy and was part of Nuclear testing in the pacific. Very interesting stories!
Comes in handy if you are skipping a jig at alijos and hook a big yellowfin. And the whole star drags cast way better then lever drags is bs imo....
One of my favorite movies... Even better weave!
Damn J sounds no bueno... Hopefully the dude had the decency to offer you a smoke after he fondled ur junk 3x:rofl:
Awesome, would like to see one. Will be on the lookout
Nice tiGurushi bassmandan!
Thats a fantastic shark weave Steve!
A jx6/3 is a very good surface iron reel. Magging it definitely helps in the casting department and can be done on the cheep. I used to use a...
You can also upload the photos here
and do the same thing!
Cool stuff Spike! My bucket list fo sho
Aimpoint pro, battery will last over a year.
My money is on this, and is why I serve my topshots as tight as my serving tool allows!
I WANT ONE! That's Purdy! Are your regular a2z tribute jigs available? Have a 15 day in April I'd like to try one out on.
I have the 7100 with the jig area cut out to accept 2 extra Plano boxes. Rod tubes are a must.
How to: 300 blk brass out of 556 cases.

What about a 300 blackout? All you need is a 300 barrel. Same mags as 556, Same bolt. On par with the 7.62x39 ballistically. Can use a cut down...
Those grips are AWESOME! beautiful work!
Try the robduilding forum, I think Scold is up in that area?
Welcome Mike, glad you like
Shogun 4/19 15 day Accu trip.
Nice again Wiseguy, your two toned grips are sweet!
Big fish can be had down below all year long, but the long range fleet doesn't fish these areas between june and oct much... hurricane season.
x2, much easier than people think...
Kens in Oside will do them all!
Just measured some and it is 1.2 mm
Nice, what a way to start a trip!
Stainless steel top shot jig for making custom windon leaders. Measures 17" long and 7.75" tall. Breaks down for travelling
80# into 130, try a dual wall topshot.
Cool blank BIll!
Nice pictures! Where was the sailfish caught at?
Those are SICK Bill!
Same thing happened last time too... 1,000,000 rnds in an hour from aim. Crazyness.
Nice rewrap Dan the bass man! My dad has an old chocolate colored sabre asking for a rewrap!.. Also recently tried out Jims hypalon install...
Beauty! Congrats on the record!
THat looks like a beeeitchin time! Thanks for the report Erika. U rock!
Nice Pargo! Dont see those too often off sd boats.
x2, Tony Pena knot here for anything under 50. Will tye a uni/uni when in a hurry, but they definitely are not nearly as strong... Have lost...
Id consider that top TOP shelf! Need to learn how to weave...
I hear the cold shrink is much more durable. I have toasted some hot shrink in one trip on a heavy rail rod. Havent tried the cold shrink though...
Some good pictures there! Quite a few familiar faces in them. Thanks!
That is top shelf right there! The sparkle thread is nice!
That green is BRIGHT! I like. Nice builds
Prayers for you, hope all goes well!
Thats a beautiful looking morning right there!
Congrats to you!
Read it was a hoax. Not a firearm, but a pepper spray gun.
THat tiger is clean! Well done!
x3 on not touching them, my dads thumb learned that lesson. haha
Good luck Jamie, eagerly awaiting updates!
Nice thanks for the report! Three more months...
01-19-2013 - Today was one of those days that every long range fisherman dreams of. 81 tuna and 20 wahoo was the tally...
Safe travels, it is very addicting...
Looks good Nate! What happened to the jd lower?
Thats a sweet looking tiger!
Great as always Jim. I like the blue turkshead.
I started out using dual sided tape, but have since moved to no adhesive at all. No problems so far.
Nice looking rods! What size halibut do you get in Norway?
Originally built this rod 3 or 4 years ago and since then it had aquired quit bit of boat rash. Since its the offseason for me why not rewrap?...
Thats an awesome story, thanks for posting Debi!
The purple goes good with that darker cork. Nice build Wiseguy
Nice green rod! Big fan of green myself
Way to go Fishy!
Wahoo fishing is usually HOT this time of year at hb and the buffer zone!
Yeah, maybe start with the AG?:shithappens:
That pigment looks sweet! Bubbles piss me off!
Never nice build Bill.
Okuma definitely has a winner with the special edition models as they took Alan Tani's advice and are now packing the non spool bearings...
three A threads base wrap, burnish a bit. 1 coat of finish. Two top threads 1 "C" and 1 sac "D" opposite direction and then a top coat of finish.
Nice fish Dennis!
Possibly could have used a size too big on the xrap. I use the smallest size I can that will fit over the grips.
Never know, always up and down. Just have to go and find out. WHat trip are you on in april? Im on the shogun
Have both and fish both. Like them equally. The mak being $400 cheaper definitely helped my purchasing decision when I added another reel to my...
Mak 20 vs avet 30= Mak all day long. Lighter spool better and gearing. The avet 30 low gear is a bit high imho.
cool orangy tiger, I like. Need to do an orange themed rod for a friend.
Though its a bit of work, I wash all my spectra with the swifty spool then wind it loosely onto an old reel that I no longer use and then wind...
Makes no difference with solid or hollow, they both collect salt water... I use the swifty spool to wash.
That is a cool pic Blaine!
jb for the win!
A mak 20SEA holds 700+ yds of jb100 has 55lbs drag @ max drag. IPC @ 15" low gear.
Atd 30 holds 700+ yds of jb100. Could not find the...
It can be found on Google earth labeled shimada seamount. Look 190 or so miles south West of clarion. More West then south. Really neat to see...
Nice, good timing again for the xl!
That thing looks fantastic!
I really like your fish wraps!
The red/black shrink tube looks good! Nice build Wiseguy
Sounds like a good time! Get to see what the new crew has to offer in april!
Interesting, might have to try that out when I run out! Thanks for the heads up
I prefer the taste test myself
step away from the wide!
Glad you had a good time! Its addicting isn't it!
No kidding about those sickles Jeff, those are HUGE!
Good stuff! Thanks for the report
Very nice safe! I like a lot. Gonna be in the market eventually.
For sardines its a toss up between the atd30 and mak20. Have both and fish both.
Very interest to see what the actual breaking strength of the toro tamer 80# is. Not much bigger in diameter then the jb100 and if it tests near...
Would you be interested in a trade for some custom reel balancing?
Good one Steve!
Nice, I really like my alps chuck!
pb 42# yt
pompano dorado/kite baits
Well blow me down!
Nice Jim! Need to learn your wizardry
They definitely act strange once hooked. Couple times I thought I was picked up by a 20 lber, ended up gaining a 100+ lbs.
Bcg's have been scarce lately. Best bet is try ebay. Or try the equipment exchange on ar15.com.
Ares armor oceanside. Not sure if they have any in stock, but you can do the machining there for $65
I use a self magged jx6/3 with a composite ulua. I opted for the jx over the 533 which I sold. I like a bit smaller reel for surface iron....
Was thinking the same, but we didn't see very many sharks for the entire trip. And lots of tuna were being hooked at the time on jigs?
I got chewed off last year at hurricane.
And as alvways, have nice day!
No experience with the phenix, but can recommend the rainshadow swimbait blanks. With the 945 being my favorite.
Nice yote! I keep reading that you cant hunt with that type of rifle... strange
Merry Christmas Capt. Richie!
Adam Lanza broke a hundred laws the day he went on his shooting spree. Many of you think we need to pass more laws or the right law. And once we...
Yup, its insane

Wahoodad tried It with bigfishforfun.com Didnt gain any traction though. Wish it had...
Nice marble job Jim. Your sticks rock!
They are all very good
Yep, long range boats toss out macks if they hit the deck...
I bet you won't be going to the lower banks!
Sweet green stick Bill!
Excellent work Jim, your olive branches are fantastic!
That JTDS looks GOOOOOD!
I like pmags too, just make sure if you get some 10/20 or 10/30 pmags that they only hold 10.
Killer job on the grips.
fantastic report, I enjoyed reading it! Any chunk fishing work?
Damn a couple months ago the PSA stripped lowers were like 80 bucks at Turners. Have a couple uppers waiting for a mate!
FULL length 6463xxxh here

Threads were probably messed up. You need to run a tap thru the hole to retap it.
For "on the cheap" how about an old E glass baja boomer blank rated 60-130. Sorry gave an old price found in a search. They are now $80
Clean work Pedro!
I wrapped a ss xxxh with those pacbay titanuim turbos for my dad a few years ago. No issues so far.
Nice looking stick Bill, very jungly.
X2. 2x4 over the 1x3 all day long fishing big fish.
Makaira 20 loaded with 100jb has near the same capacity as most non wide 50s loaded with 130. Sometimes they just can't be stopped. If the reel...
That is fantastic Mr. Zombie
Nice report Kil. Need to get down there soon!
Maybe trigger. There are many different types of them.
Remember reading somewhere that most of the 200+ are actually males.
That definitely looks interesting. Found a price somewhere that said $649 for the rifle, and under 1000 when you add an addition barrel/bolt/mags.
I really like the 700mh for 40. 765l for 50
Those look good Josh!
Any more details on the type of reels that failed and what the failures were?
Yep, my 3x and 4x came out between 6'9" and 6'10" after I wrapped them.
Yes.. Donna, what is your plan for the new combo? Would help narrow down choices in rods.
WoW, so your saying a super seeker 6463xxxxh cant handle 30+ lbs of drag? :eyepoppin Guess I didn't get that memo...
I would opt for a 3x or 4x full length super seeker vs the 2x4. I like the 2x4 but more of a 100lb rod to me. Fishing a 2x4 on a 50 wide kinda...
Glad you had a good time Jamie, good read!
x2, not sure about blue but some colors are much more difficult to see in low light levels. I stick to white

Those are some nice christmas gifts Jim!
That is sweet, love the eva inlays in the cork.
Good looking build there!
Im gonna be there, want to check that fish out!
to the tip top
Stainless steel top shot jig for making custom windon leaders. Measures 16" long and 6.5" tall. Breaks down for travelling.
Another great looking jig Jerry!
good stuff Bill!
Full speed puffer fish off the east cape when I tried it:rofl:
I just payed $19 shipping an sds ups insured to norcal. $30 bucks aint that much...
Check out the rainshadow swimbait blanks. 945 and 946 are fantastic sticks.
Nice cowfish there!
MV santa rosa mentioned some BIG ones that he has seen from his past days as a commercial fisherman. 5+
The twisting doesnt bother me. You will get ALOT winding pl68s at hurricane. Hollow only for me. Like being able to add or cut out bad areas...
Wow what a trip!
crazy! What a catch!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Guess were not gonna read a report where the boat is moving to Clarion to settle the Jackpot!
So by Bob Costas' argument, Nicole Brown Simpson and Ron Goldman should be alive today?
Buffer zone @ Clarion
Now that is clean!
I take 2 spools of 100lb and 2 spools of 130 fluoro. I use the pink yo zuri lately. They are 30 meter spools. I also bring some spools of...
Junk or Chunk?
Sounds like an epic trip for sure!
I cannot corfirm nor deny!
I have used that reel seat on quite a few cow rods and they work great.
Already working on the blueprints for my own hadron collider:rofl:
Will be fishing with them in april!
The reason we dont want to pay for prisons is because it costs close to 60k per year per prisoner. Other states do it for 1/3 the cost, this...
RIP fellow fisherman
I do this, but with a small swimbait or crockodile. Works nicely!
NOT cheaper than dirt. The last few gun shows ive been to wasnt any cheaper than can be found online.
Nice read, Congrats Randy!
Thanks for the report Aaron, love fishing the hbank!
Nice, I see a nipple
11-27-2012 - jeff called in on the sat. phone tonight to report good fishing on yellowfin tuna on the first day of the trip. Most tuna are in the...
BEA utiful! Need to learn how to do clean finish work like that!
Speaking of Clemens, what do you all think of my Clemens/Renzetti inspired home built(work built actually) rod lathe! Had a bunch of old...
Hope Aaron gives us a report of the fishing this evening!
Now if that isn't a hell of a way to start out a trip, I dont know what is!
Star already has a supercow today!
Should be good, im surprised they are still getting hoo at alijos!
There have been many different ulua blanks out there, if its the s glass its rated 30-40. Some models of the 10' models are rated for up 60lb....
Yep, I know a few who only use soft steel... Pink yo zuri for me, no problems so far and good prices.
Not sure If sig will ship the rifle here, but the m400 should be able to be made california compliant. I dont see it on the list of banned...
Just picked up a makaira 20 se at turners for 503 otd. Also had a $40 gift card so it was an even sweeter deal! Just an fyi to anyone...
I have fished my leaders down to 4 feet without skipping a beat. Usually start at 15'.
Congratulations, nice fish!
Yt for sure, good possibility of yft at the rocks up to a hundy. Possible albacore and bluefin. Have caught all these species on June shogun 8...
Have about 700 yards of hollow on mine.
Good shit Nick! Cant wait to get back to Clarion myself... april
Jb 100# =.433 mm dia
guide choice 100#=.530 mm dia
gonna lose a bit of capacity with the guide choice vs jb
Definitely getting pumped here! Im on one of the "day after april 18 2013 trips":rofl:
Nice and easy! I like
I have the alps Chuck on my home made wrapper, its nice!
Definitely looks better then my marbling attempts!
Accurates are simple, go for it!
Just buy a black one and paint it! For a good AR at a decent price watch palmetto state armory for their daily deals. Last week they had a stock...
According to basil yes. Just go 100
Nice Bill, hopefully it fishes better then Rivers does throwing passes. Bill Moore might start hooking more passengers then he does fish:rofl:
Thanks for the link Wiseguy, ill have to try that out.
Cool lookin hoo!
I use an alcohal torch to shrink the grips
Stuff looks pretty good. Sylvia gave me a spool of that variegated thread. Will have to try that out!
Yeah its the bullard sapphire metallic.
Not sure what kind of blank this is. It was cheap. Feels like a decent 8-15lb bass stick. Bullard inca gold, bullard blue and black tiger.
Kick ass marbling on a kick ass rod!
Most of the top brands are manufactured in the same facility...
Thats a kickass rockfish day right there! Thanks for the report Cory
Awesome as usual Bill!
Piece of cake! Much easier than other rods that I have stripped
Here is an old shimano teramar that was well fished. Cork was destroyed and many guides were broken. Turned the rear grip into a split and my...
Sick death stick Wiseguy
Thanks for the report Beth. April trip should be good! Cant wait.
I see many people picked the double sd knot. Yes it is the strongest knot, but it is also the largest. Are people actually fishing this knot or...
765l or ml. No need for a long stick when casting raider/bombs.
Thats a cool looking shtick!
What do you mean by splices? Dual wall leaders only work with doing loop to loop connections. Wont work with an inline splice. I take a 7-8'...
I also do all my wind ons like this, works great!
Lookin good Bill
Thanks for the info Jim!
I was not aware there was a debate to whether the nail knot w/nub was a secure connection? I thought all the evidence has shown that the nail...
Yep pink yo zuri for me. Fished it exclusively last year with zero probs. Been picking it up at the Fred hall shows $60 for 3 30m spools of...
What actually makes a marlincaster? Always read about them, but have no idea.
Again why waste time with crimps when you are already tying a nub. Just add a couple more nails on top of the nub and be done. This is already...
Quite a bit cheaper
Agree with the above posts, always see them hanging out on top of the kelp while fishing Calicos
I insert 2.5-3 feet. I serve all my connections though
This is the 7200? Correct Jim?
Opened mine up enough to where it now holds 6 of the standard size plano boxes. 2 in the jig area and 4 in the standard area. Put a 1.5" tall...
Any more then 2 or 3 can be mayhem. Especially with folks fishing balloons and fly lined baits all getting tangled.
Even plinking can build up a lot of heat in an AR platform with semi auto fire. Chrome lining not only helps dissipate heat it is great at...
I think barrel wear will matter most with what the barrel is made out of, and if it is chrome lined or not. 20000+ rounds can be expected with a...
Thats a good score of hoo!
THey are used often on the kite. Dont know about trolling wahoo
Looks like it might be on the proto Mak 16 too!
anti "THAT GUY" lotion
Nice looking sticks!
Wow u went to town Scott! Nice decorations
Ur gonna have a good time!
I use jigs like this style. Megabaits or jigs like it with a single hook. 3.5 oz is a good all around size
Really dig your spiral olive branches! Need to try that someday!
Nice! The potato kicks out big fish!
4 days ride home sucks! (3 from cabo).
I'd opt for an atd 12 on the 770xh and put a 30 on a 770xxh. I'd skip the 770h, bottoms out easily in my opinion.
Sounds like an awesome trip! 30 cows ain't bad at all
Same here, my go to knot the last few years on 100lb and up. Zero failures.
12/0 7691, Shoulder hooked. Small black Skippy was the ticked last year vs the bigger purple colored ones.
Have fun in pv!
small megabaits worked well last year at the bank
So strange that its always the first post?
Shweeet looking stick!
Wow, awesome day for the AA!
Awesome read, thanks for the killer trip replay.
2.5-3 foot max inserted for me. I also double the spectra then serve. Dual walled topshots. They dont come apart.
Stop bragging about having a hurricane named after you:2gunsfiring_v1:
Head straight for Clarion, stop at Alijos on the way south for 4 hours to break up the ride. Fish the buffer zone for 2 days. Head north and...
Damn, might get a bit bumpy
Probably going the way of the first no hunt AND fish state in the union:Dynamite:
Looks like the HB is biting!
Another fan of the purple here!
Good luck out there, saw that you were signed up on the charter list.:hali_olutta:
Hollow casts just fine if you know what you are doing. Straight 60 hollow or 65 solid with 4' fluoro for me.
Cool vid, crazy gaff shot on that dodo!
Nice, I was wondering if they were gonna split the difference between the 15 and 20!
Talk to Mary Nichols (dumb B) and CARB for the answers you seek...
The 500n holds about the same amount of line as the 400. 400 will hold about 500 yds of 50 jb stacked to the rim.
On the cheap, id get a used jx 2 speed. People have mentioned the 700m, and the 700h. Id split that and go 700mh. Perfect combo for 15lb...
Muy bueno! Full length?
Pick any boat you want, all boats are good and will catch fish if they are biting.
They should connect to a standard upper no problem. But I don't think I'd use one though. If you are looking to save money wait for blem lowers...
I second this. Always make room for a bass rod. Fun to mess around with, and sometimes come in handy like last year at hurricane bank...
Cool spinning fly rod Wiseguy!
I dont know how many times Ive walked a half mile+ down a beach to get away from everybody. And ten minutes later a moron surfer paddles out 10...
Thanks for the idea Jim! That whole space has just been a waste lately as all my jigs became paintless. So I took everything out. Gonna cut that...
Kurt. If bottom line doesn't doesn't come thru, I can hook you up.
Been to alijos twice and we have had good fishing on yellows to mid forties both trips in the spring time.
I've fished all of the above with mine including the chunk and yoyoing pl68s!
I had 700 yds of 100lb hollow spectra on my bx230 while I had it. Those old newels prob don't even have 250 yards on them. Lol
Plenty good enough! The Shogun's boat trolling rods are old newells. And they drag marauders all over hurricane bank with them.
5-600 for me.
Yep, talking to a couple from colorado who rented all their tackle from the landing my last trip. They paid and arm and a leg and then some....
It's Hennifer Lopez!
Awesome pics, need try some day! Is that a safety line attached? In case someone can't handle that measly 80 lbs of drag at full lol..
Baby flier, saw a bunch my last trip out.
Something fishy going on there?
Think id stay away from the car battery lead for casting. Pretty sure the plates in a battery are a metal alloy and not pure lead.
Thanks for the report, we had el skunko on sat out of oside also. Bait is actually a butterfish.
That is memorable!
This dude was about a hundred miles north of alijos when he showed up.
The tranx is def on my short list. Thanks for the in depth review. Think I will start looking for a phenix blank to wrap up for it!
It was kinda cold down at the hbank two years ago at the end of nov. Warmed up though as we moved to Clarion.
Nvmd found it.
Ovahhhhh, stick a fork in the faiders.
First place chargers!
Haters gonna hate. Love when they pan to the sad raider fans in the crowd! Go Chargers!
458 winmag WOW!
7 dollar mini butane torch from home depot works great for brazing rings.
Sick rod, dig the green trim!
Amazing what just a little different lighting does to a pic. Looks good!
A buddy of mines grandfather was booked to go on that trip and had to cancel at the last minute...
Awesome.... Would like to join that club someday!
Yup, some colors are hard to see in low light.
Turners has them in their weekly ad. 299 I think
Cant believe the price on pangas down there. But hey If that what the market commands who am I to say anything. Sorry U had a bad time Aaron
Ummm, can I have?
Nice stingray! Caught a strange oval shaped ray one time years ago. Have no idea what kind it was, but it was good size.
Cool Vid! That was a nice school of dumb dumbs
Most of the time, had good yft/yt bite off turtle bay a few years ago.
Buddy invited me to fish this trip, but declined as I am trying to save some cash at the moment. Kinda wish I would have went lol!
Badass Jason, I guess I should have gone huh?
Thanks for the report Frank! Better than skunk!
Id opt for the mak 20. Have one, goooood reel. or the atd 30. Have one too!
03, 04, the years seem to just all blend together:rofl:
It was an awesome day!
Not that short, medium size?
We never weighed it. But it was at least a hundy. Caught on the day of the MAW too. Wish we had entered!
Caught in 03 on my dads boat by my buddy! 25 lb test no less:2gunsfiring_v1:
Dont overlook the swimbait. Have had lots of success dragging 5-6" swimbaits.
Insane! Id love to fish the Azores some day...
Id buy a used hx 2 speed for a little more and load with spectra. Will work fine for any type of local trolling.
Just fish a baitcaster with the spool tensioner turned way up so the spool wont overrun. Id much rather cast a baitcaster all day long making...
Dude was definitely crowding his spot out!
Yep, thats goooooooood!
Yep, seen an elephant out by the 43 area couple years ago. Thanks for the scouting report!
Nice, thanks for the report!
Think Id like to order one of dem up!
Could of been a tuna, molas also jump though...
Dont think so. Have been on wide open paddies catching tuna, tails and dodos with plenty of sunfish around.
U are probably thinking of a mola mola
Commercial guys catch them all the time off our local banks, talk to bud b
Id definitely roll sep/oct if you want a better shot at hooos. Nov not so much.
Thats badass, one of the biggest ive seen locally!
Id spend the extra money to get a dawged reel myself. Had the older versions fail
All my revos are loaded with 30 or 40 lb spectra with a 3' fluoro leader
Ive had good luck with marios.
Unfortunately the cat gets away:rofl:
Very good news... for now!
Awesome paint job!
I agree, hand wrapping is a good and cheaper way to start and see if you like...
I fish my ulua with a jx6/3 self magged. Casts nicely.
Here is how I did my jx. There are two round pieces of galvanized steel glued in under the mags.
Muy bueno for sho!
I guarantee if you get to la jolla shores tomorrow at 530 am there will be 10 other dudes to paddle out with. WOuldnt even sweat it. imho
Damnit, I wish my pos broke ass 17' would make it out there. Need a new boat...
Yup revo inshore/ toro 50. Me likey
This has been crossing my mind a lot lately...
Interesting, havent seen one of those yet.
Permagloss or cpxtra
Nice, havent seen one of those grunts before. Thanks for the pics
Those two tempbreak shots show a good example of how temp and chloro work. thanks
Eggzactly wtf was that all about?
That was a COOL vid. I liked the angel shark just cruising along!
Sometimes its red hot in april... You just never know.
BUT, BUT, BUT, the experts say makos dont eat sealions...
Signed, need to stop these clowns
Looks good! Most of my rods are black and met green too.
Thanks for report, Looks like a good time! How big is that yt in your avatar?
Thats Badass, congrats
Yepper, always bring the bass rod! I bring mine to hurricane bank:2gunsfiring_v1:
I usally send them into a jar of water immediately after brazing. Never had a problem.
Sounds like fun Tommie, wish I could go.
Thanks for the update Lance!
I think he was giving props for using the word exigent. Not talking shit:2gunsfiring_v1:
HOGS, nice pics!
Used to camp here every year when I was younger. Fun place!
make a wish is a good one, with a good cause
Awesome report, been there a few times but on lr boats. Place is bitchin, hooked a grouper on a surface iron once. Would like to do a cedros...
Yep, I must say that is Purdy Damn cool looking!
Nice lookin swimmy stick. Those reel seats are tits
Anybody want more proof if trolling works just go to la jolla shores on any given day early afternoon and check the catches of the plastic navy....
Say what? Trolling for yellows is a waste of time? Much to learn grasshoppa
Heck do a search for the first BD yellowtail shootout and see how...
Grips look excellent!
TOAD. On a swimbait no less!
Looking excellent like always Jim!
My buddy liked his iswb945 enough that he wanted another. So I obliged and made a road trip up to C&M and picked up two 946's one for myself too!...
Excellent report Erik, sounds like an interesting run in with the charter boat!
Even if we do notice it wont matter... Just look at the MLPA debacle
Good luck and have fun Bill!
Way to go Sherm!
Nice looking h&k too! Been looking into doing a sse myself. As the 45 I want is not on the california list. Would also like to know who you...
Ive been trying to get a spikes tactical bcg for my ar for the last month and they are backordered everywhere.
I have had more sealed bearings freeze up then unsealed. Which is how I have been running my reels lately and others that I work on. Just sayin...
Accurate says only 20, but accurate used to say they have never had a single arb failure too!
All I know is that I had a 400 lose anti reverse. And now I don't own a 400.
Same as I heard.
Funny we were told 129 for the upgrade?
Yeah, the 600n will work as it is just the sideplate that is changed out. Sideplate is the same in all sizes of 600s
I had a 400 lose ar on its first trip out. It got salt water spray while travelling. Worked its way into the ar bearing and it rusted. One...
This was per the accu rep at the lb show. None in the works as if now. Rep said they feel their was no need in the smaller reels. Again not...
Only avail in the 600 size and 30. Not in the works for the 500 per accurate.
Separate names with a comma.
