Excellent report dude.
You’re not the first I heard this happening to unfortunately. Fuck that guy.
Sorry for the loss man. You are a very good fisherman and a very good sportsmen.
[ATTACH] Here is the only picture I got. From my buddy’s gopro.
I missed the party by a couple of hours it seems. Wish I could have been there for the Morning bite.
Thanks Corey. You had s stellar day as well.
Today we got a late start not getting to the zone until 11:45.
Friend had to drop his kids off at school. No biggie. Weather was nice.
I like the Costco pre marinated one they have. It’s delicious.
I would head straight west. Look for the smallest signal. Bring a lot of bait and light string.
Excellent first report dude!
Nice report Lou! Glad you got them.
Excellent report there amigo!
That whole crew is exceptional.
San Diego bay. We only put 20 gallons in
Thanks man. So are you. Would be a pleasure if yourself, myself and Cody could link up one day and do havoc together.
You were busy yourself amigo!
You the man brah! Good going!
Hey You read this one right.
Started to head to the zone and was shortly interrupted by a jag of tuna under the boat.
I threw a hefty scoop,...
You as well amigo!
I have the recipe posted in the recipe section.
They were biting today. Green water, tons of fish. Meter mark, throw bait, they blow up on the chums, we hook them and rinse and repeat.
You’re asking a $1,000 dollars for a rod.
Some decent photos would really be appreciated.
So rad dude!
Good stuff corey. Let’s do it all again soon!
Lou I’ll take it. Let’s meet up.
Good times yesterday dude!

There is a forum for planning a trip. This is for reports.
Any on the plug?
Stick with it man. Tuna fishing hasn’t come easy this week. But it will get good. Thanks for the report.
They were moving north west matter a fact. All on the bird. No seiners. Its one cast style of fishing on those birds.
Keeping this one really short.
Left shelter at 11:00 am and headed to the zone.
We hit the south 9 and found 80-100lb bluefin that we’re up...
It’s a US Monster by UC. Amazing popper/ stickbait rod. I rig my poppers crimped to 150lb leaders .

You’re fishing with the best fleet in San Diego. Bluefin fishing is tough. But the reward is spectacular. Keep at it.
Did you rig your sinker like I showed you?
Good job bud!!!
I can cast mine further then most on the boat. Depending on what you are throwing, it’s not just the reel. Rod has a crucial role into loading...
I put a TranX 500 on mine and use it for the popper.
Thanks man. I throw the popper with a TranX 500 loaded with 80lb Maxcuatro with a united composite US monster.

Just a funny segment of the water boy. I liked it so I put it on my rod haha.
I’d say 16 were hooked. 9 landed. Smallest fish on deck was 50lbs. I would fish nothing less then 50 pound.
I killed the fish in 50 minutes.
Yes sir. Trinidad 16a loaded with Maxcuatro 65lb to a 30lb xxx mono to a short piece of 30lb leader.
Sorry forgot to mention that. Yes. There were 3 caught that style.

Looking at resos...
Keep trying amigo. You will get your shot. Just wasn’t your day.
I clearly state frozen flyers.
Yes. It was about 30 ft of 200lb.

Stoked for you and yours. You deserve it!
No kill bag this trip. Only fish holds that were completely plugged.

Calstar 900xl. Hard to beat. Really soft tip and excellent backbone. The perfect chovie rod.
I would slide a coltsniper back and drop it deep.
I was letting it fall and they would then eat it. They were at 200ft of water. And yes JD was on the boat. He’s rad.
I killed all three of my cows in flip flops :gay:

Anyways, got out first...
You rock bro. Thanks!
I personally own a btg90j as well. Love this rod. Soft enough to fire those jigs and lots of backbone. Calstar does not disappoint.

Nicely done. Way to salvage the day.

You do need a two-speed.
Has everyone ever used the flouro from blackwater? If so, how is it? How does it compare to seagur premier.

Nick you will have a great time on that boat!
So I have a question.
Some do it some don't.
Sometimes the line that runs up and down the knot is completely straight, or is curved.
the tac12ii is a versatile reel. a must have in the arsenal.
Lookin for a used tranx hg. Doesn't have to be pretty. Just in great mechanical shape.
Looking to keep it between $350-380

I Want to know where too. 20 pounds of drag on a curado is killer! No need for a 14.
Wow. The rod I'm using is heavy as well. A blast to catch that size on. What's everyone else's thoughts?
I have the curado 300ej paired with my 8"2 phenix m1 20-45. I used it last week as my 20 pound setup because the tuna were picky. It has 65pp to a...

Is the PG on the black diamond? I'm about to buy that rod to yoyo with my pg. how does it feel? How do you fish it?
Think it could be a good yo yo reel?
Switch that top shot from 30# to 40# first off.
Seems like you have a bad ass setup for tossing the iron. I would go to the beach or the bay....
HAHAHA I did! I had to swoop it. Its in great condition too. I thought it was a scam at first. So happy I was the first caller.
Do you guys have...
So I just picked up a Tranx PG. Got a smoking deal on it. I already have the HG which is my surface iron setup.
I feel the PG is a little to slow...
Is this the same one? i see the same part number. Sorry, just wanna be sure. [IMG][ATTACH]
it doesn't give me the option to see the 20k. its just giving me the sw, with the round handle.
Right on man! Thanks! No problems of it engaging mid cast?
So the knob on my tranX is worn, and i was wanting to replace it. Any idea where i can get a replacement? Maybe even a black one? Ive seen the...
I want one! Set one aside for me please? Thank you!
Trini all the way!
Lookin for a used 14A. Could care less about cosmetics, as long as its mechanically sound.
You can keep your line as well. LMK Thanks guys!
Looking for a strictly used one. But thanks though.
Like the title says, Looking for a used 14a. don't really care about boat rash. As long as its smooth.
located in San Diego.

Pictures do not do this rod justice. The entire rod is absolutely stellar. I love it! Thanks again jim!
Really looking for a calstar 700h. Thanks anyways man
Now looking to do an even trade for a yoyo rod!
The Tranx gives you the best of both worlds. Line capacity, and raw power. However, between the 20a and the Lexa 400, hands down the 20a. It is...
You could maybe put the tranx knob on it. Its smaller.
I might be down for that. It has yet to be serviced! thanks brotha!
I fish the TranX HG as my iron reel. 65# pp to a 40 # xxx topshot. I can cast to far breaking fish, and nail it. The sheer power this reel has is...

Bought it new last spring and used it all season. It's in immaculate condition. Excellent rod, just want to try something different. I slung iron...

thanks billy. Im going with a custom wrapped 90j.
I have an m1 and couldn't be happier. I have the 8"2 heavy. It's so light but has alot backbone. I've caught 20 # yellows on it too. Phenix makes...

Thanks Jeff! I've seen some guys do that as well. Thanks for your input man.
Nice. So I throw the 45s well with it, but I feel I would get more distance with the 90j. I do like how light my phenix is. And I throw the Tranx....
So I have my jig stick, I like it, but don't love it. I fish the psw909hxj. Paired with my TranX HG. I just don't feel like its a true jig stick....
I'll take it can pick up tomorrow!
Right on. Sick setup.
How much for the setup to sell?
i own the 809xhj and love it! Such a sick stick. Its a workhorse for so many applications. makes a stellar 40# bait stick!
I've used the blue, and it's tough for me to see. However, I do prefer the super slick over the reg power pro. It's really smooth. I stick with...
i have the 909 xhj and the 809xhj! both stellar sticks, i use the 909 for irons, and poppers. The 809 is a nasty 40# bait stick:)

I use a 9ft phenix paired with my tranx to sling the irons. 65#pp to 40# izor xxx 75yds. I too like the longer topshots, and honestly even with...
