Damn I have rent to pay. GLWS.
Beautiful rod Moon
Thanks for the history write up. Appreciate the info.
I wonder if Calstar will make a 9’ version of this rod. Any rumblings?
Thank you for your generous offer but distance and room to put the smoker is an issue. I appreciate the offer.
No service when I was out for my 3 dayer
For you $2000
I have one. $1500 takes it.
Supply and demand. Seriously, is the honey tip rare status?
Is the 100J mag honey tip getting rare? I have one that I’ll sell for $1000.
Nice. I’m sure someone will pay rent money for the rod
Are you in a stateroom or bunk? Staterooms have outlets. Bunks have the outlets on the very top bunk.
Trip was good. Hooked up with 10 YFT lost 5. Got one on the coltsniper. Didn’t really fish the second day and part of the 3rd. I just chilled out,...
1 time on the PQ. Trophy hunting ain’t my thing but was a fish of a life time.
Heard that UC did a special run on the brown color for Fred Hall. Is this a one and done or does UC plan on doing more brown colored blanks....
Bring 40 or 60 set up for the BFT. They wanted to bite during my trip. Small hooks for the YFT. Have fun.
Looking to get a small smoker to smoke my own fish. Any recommendations is greatly appreciated. Thanks.
All the fish on my trip were on bait, light line and small hook. I did manage one on the coltsniper. FYI, bring the heavy gear. Big bluefin wanted...
Here’s the list of boats I’m looking at for next year.
Would love to hear pros and cons. Thanks.
On the jig :appl:
Could be. 245pc. Assault with deadly weapon.
I have this rod. Awesome stick. GLWS.
Rod should go fast
I’m going to check the mattress before I put bag down
Congrats on the baby. GLWS. First baby bump.
Rod should sell fast. GLWS.
I use 8’6” and 9’ foot rods for snipers and light small irons. Bait is do able on the long rods.
WTF! I’m going on a 3 day on the PQ and I’m going to take every precaution necessary.
Nice first post
Sunline has 35. Going to test it out on my three day.
I’m bringing 4 set ups. It’ll cover the 20,25,30, 40. I have 20, 25 and 30 fluoro. Loaded up on hooks and colt snipers. Stoked for this trip.
Go on the Liberty if you can get on. Awesome operation and they’ll take care of your kid.
Memories fishing the barge.
Damn, that sucks.
Ok, it stays home. Thanks.
Should I take it or leave it behind? Thanks.
Rent money right there. GLWS.
Wow, rent money right there
Have 5 star process your fish
T minus 7 days. Looks like light line and Fluro is the name of the game.
Ugh, say it ain’t so. I have a trip with them in two weeks. Which bunk number was it? :(
Bump for a good seller
Google searched and yelped and got some pictures of people with bed bug bites on boats. UGH.
I’ll be bringing my work flashlight and bed bug spray on my trip
I’m on this trip.
MRSA and scabies! Wow straight skid row shit there.
Serious question do overnight and multiday boats inspect for bed bugs and how often?
I bring disinfectant spray and spray down my bunk area and mat. I also bring my own sleeping bag. Bed bugs is no joke.
Oh no that’s disgusting. Nasty ass skid row transient shit.
:appl:sucks for the guy who lost his $800 out fit but oh well.
T minus 13 days. I hope the yft, bft, yt, and dodo go wild. Kind of tempted to bring a 200 size reel for shits and giggles. Stock piled on colt...
Good prices. GLWS.
I am frustrated. I hope I can get the bag soon.
I bought the Melton jig bag and have been waiting for 2 months for the bag. Back ordered.
Light line and small hooks. 15, 20, 25 seem to be the way to go. #2 and #4 hooks. Don’t forget small colt snipers.
Process. 5 star.
Used the SMX-82M and using the Black Diamond 8’6” w/ trigger grip for rubbers and light/ small irons and coltsnipers.
You’re kidding right?
Thanks for the intel
Color? Size? Thanks.
Steal of a deal. Shouldn’t last long . GLWS.
Pm the dude
I thought you can’t sell sport caught fish. Don’t you need to have a commercial license?
Damn your friend is going to hate life cutting all that fish and sealing it and throwing away the left over carcass. NO THANKS.
What size hooks are y’all using for the YFT? Thanks.
Folks be dropping major cash for these rare Seekers. I got rent to pay.
Limited runs. Limited availability. Supply and demand.
I second that
:appl:I have a 3 day 9/10 and I can’t wait.
Another CEX. GLWS.
Fishing is heating up yet more drama with this thread
Damn that was fast
Duck tales w/o pictures
WTF type of question is this?
I don’t know you Jim but feel better.
CEX drama. :hali_parkutuli:
Here we go again. GLWS.
Curious if any BDers are on this trip? Looks like the YFT and Yellows are on the bite again. Hopefully the DODOs and the BFT will be there too.
When the fishing is slow these types of threads pop up.
Go to the shimano parts website and see if you can order one.
What’s an Albacore?
Native son had 81 bodies today. :fighting0061:
That picture :fighting0061:
Bring it. Fish it.
Newell 332 when they were available. Now it’s a Trinidad 20a or a Tranx 400.
I don’t do jack pot. I use that money to give the crew a really nice tip.
I believe a few BD members caused the “blue seeker” hysteria. I’m beginning to feel blue fever.
I know. OP being a smart ass with that price change bull shit.
No dick I’m just calling you out for not being a man and honoring your price.
Wait you ask $180 and now you want $220? BD is turning into an auction house now? I guess honoring your price doesn’t exist anymore.
:appl:these seals need to die in the mouth of mr gws.
It’s as if the 405, 110, and the 5 exploded. Amazing how dumb people are able to operate a boat and not give two shits about distance and running...
Not a stupid question. Go fish.
That was fast.
20% is standard. Go on the trip and tip what you can.
That 290 is a piggie
FUCK THIEVES. I hope y’all get your gear back and please please fuck this trash up.
90 bodies is NUTS but it’s summer and the weekend. That’s why I don’t fish Friday’s and weekends.
Dang that sucks. I hope they catch the trash that did this. No video surveillance?
Sportking is cool. You have thick skin? Can you deal with a loud Capt who will talk shit to you (jokes of course). Crew works hard.
Instead of showing pictures of your fish from the get go why the odd picture? Congrats on the fish.
Thieves scammers they can use a beat down
Someone should bait these fools and and a meet up beat down session
Don’t deal with zeros
This needs to happen at Cat
Is Islands going to get more blue blanks in or is this the last batch?
Which blue Seeker blank for a kick ass 40/50 lb rig? Thinking Talica 12 for the reel. Thanks
Just remember you get what you pay for. I would rather save my money and do longer trips but to each their own.
Jump on the Triton or Gail force instead
[ATTACH] Directly from Islands FB page
No one is going to give you spots. Earn it by finding your own.
Oh shoot :eyepoppin
I miss sand bass fishing. I strictly do catch and release but years and years of people loading up on them has definitely taken a toll on the fish...
Luck is preparation meeting opportunity
Tribute but you can’t go wrong with the tomahawk
The 400 clamp might work
Fished the Belle two months ago when the yellows went off. Capt and crew are AWESOME. Had time to go off shore and chase BFT. Got one 70lb fish on...
3 day 2nd week of September
Damn that’s commitment.
Better load up either way. Quite the impressive blue Seeker collection you have there.
I heard Seeker might do the blue blanks again
Beautiful wraps :appl:
Price for the rods and reels
No cash deal?
I use the 500 on both my 300 and 400. Easy swap.
I would pay extra to fish the Liberty with 30 spots
Beautiful rod Moon :appl:
Would you consider pm’ing him instead of having your low ball offer be seen by everyone
Damn. Steal for 6 days on the gun.
PQ is sold out until October
Tribute. Rent gear you don’t have and have fun.
Great deal on the combo set up. GLWS.
What gen is this blank? Line rating?
Sav on tackle has them for sale
That’s only on the Pursuit
You a commercial fisherman or are you trying to sell sport caught fish?
The speedmaster 2 speed isn’t out until September
Post is 3 years old
Honesty and integrity goes a long way :appl:
Anyone else having problems ordering from Sunline website? Thanks.
LA boats I would ride are Native Son, Sportking and Enterprise. Week day. Weekend=combat. Do your self a favor and drive to SD and try to get on...
Might be recovering from combat fishing :Pillow_Fi
I always start off throwing smaller jigs. TLC is deadly. And yes, the yellows were biting the yo yo and coltsnippers.
Nothing negative about the boat.
Damn. The search continues.
Why not get the wrapped rod and strip it and re-wrap?
:appl: You should think about getting your fish processed at 5 star rather than putting your fillets in those zip lock bags. 60 sounds like a shit...
Looks like the flesh eating bacteria is on the rise especially in the waters of the south and parts of Florida. The bacteria enters the body...
LOL Charmin grouper
You get what you pay for.
Combat fishing at its finest :appl:
Condor all the way
:appl:My trip on the Liberty had 40 people. 60 peoples is a CLUSTER. I heard they want to limit the boat to 35 people and raise the price which I...
Surprised law enforcement isn’t out there with the hundreds of boats.
Good looking spread.
:appl:but 85 boats? Sheesh.
Good luck getting a rod wrapped now. Probably won’t get it in time for this season.
That was fast
It’s the weekend everyone is going to be out there
I believe he did.
I was on this trip. Stayed clear of the cluster back in the stern and stayed in the bow.
Grasshopper post is three years old.
I heard his lady dropped his Talica set up. Reel went for a swim. Dude went for a swim too.
I was on the trip. I was up in the bow throwing lures. Got two and lost 3 along a/ jigs/ lures. Everything that folks have said about the Liberty...
Damn that was a painful read. At least your buddy got his wallet back w/ everything in it.
Some asshole took you Bonita when you were 8? Fuck’n dam shame on that fucker stealing a kids fish.
Dang, these 1st gen Seeker white tigers are money makers.
Beautiful wraps. I hope the buyer insures the rod.
Sorry to hear. I hope law enforcement finds the boat and the fuckers that did this.
I’m taking my jig stick and a doodle rod.
And who shall pay the kings ransom for this rod? GLWS.
Damn if I wasn’t on the PQ for a three day during that week I would be all over this trip. GL.
Are you trying to feed a large family and that’s why you’re “competitive” on what’s supposed to be a stress free get away? I personally love...
I’ll take it. PM sent.
Sav on tackle or johnnies tackle.
I use a m1 smx 9ft dh for my Tranx 400. Live the set up.
$250 is what I saw on tackle direct.
Budget friendly 2 speed for 40lb or 50lb?
Shimano speedmaster 2 speed...
New fathom star drag
Rumor has it that a new two speed feel is coming from daiwa. Any shimano saltwater rumors?
New Lexa 300 & 400
Shipping is $ for rods longer then 8ft.
Icast 2019 is this Monday. Anything new from the big companies? Thanks.
What the heck. Nice calico too.
Looks like 11 peeps are going
Which rod blank would you go with? Thanks.
From a news article I read.
Macomb County Sheriff’s Department arrested 39-year-old Timothy Kennedy of New Baltimore on June 29. The arrest...
Tiburon power handle. How big was your fish? Bait or flat fall?
:appl:next time let the breeder go
Hopefully your wife feels better
Liquid courage. Dude got popped for duice.
Not a fan of Seeker rods but a lot of folks on BD use Seeker and some are ultimate fanboys willing to sell their soul for certain unicorn rods and...
Ok. I was like this dude has balls for saying shit like that.
Phenix m1 smx-dh 9’.
PQ is sold out from late July to late September. Pacifica, we’ll go to the fish hat board and get ready to read 17 pages worth of comments....
It’s the mythical Fukushima bo-wahoonita. They say it brings good luck.
Thanks for sharing the graphs and data.
I’ve seen folks use paint ball guns.
Go to fisherman access. They have some Phenix rods that are on sale.
So far so good. Gets the job done and the 20% off coupon from them was sweet.
I have a pair of grunden ankle boots. They gave me a 20% off coupon.
Tranx 400 w/ Phenix M1 SMX90H-DH. Swapped the paddle handle with Tranx 500 handle. Love this set up.
Sell your rod and use the $ for the h. Sold mine quickly. GLWS.
Congrats on the baby. Someone is getting a good deal. GLWS.
Is that a mythical albacore I see
36 was crowded. 25 would be perfect. The galley was big which was NICE.
You must be out of the loop b/c the PQ has had a following for a while. You have to book early with the PQ.
Call fishermen landing to rent gear. They have Talica 20s and calstar Rods. Don’t go on your trip under gunned.
Fished the Native Son today w/ 36 folks. Fished the front side of Catalina. Fishing was slow. No conditions. I went 0-3 throwing the small...
The list for the class was FULL.
Damn this isn’t going to last long. GLWS.
FYI, for all you Seeker fanboys went to Islands today and saw a couple of honey Seeker blanks. Idk the price. You’re welcome.
Wow pay rent or buy rod? GLWS.
No consequences for this idiots action. Another example of California being soft on crime.
One hell of a story. Thanks for sharing.
Did the Landing call Port Police or LAPD? What’s the description of the shit bag(s)? Tats? Distinctive indicators?
Damn shame. I hope the landing does something. Lots of homeless turd and tweekers lurking in that area. I hope they get the shit head that robbed...
:appl: On the Yellows. Robbed at gun point? The fucker has been eyeing the lot watching people come and go.
Yes, but not b/c of stolen gear. It was over the last Sardine during a hot local bite. Funniest shit ever.
The Californians are fantastic rods. Blank is from Phenix.
Plan to use this as a light jig stick w/ a Tranx 400.
Call Fisherman’s Access and see if they still have the 9ft m1 for sale. I picked one up for a FANTASTIC price.
Have a little faith in humanity. Fear is preventing you to go fish and have fun. Like what the others have said. Watch your stuff. Have some...
:appl:At least the gf got a fish of a lifetime.
Extra charges is lame
I’ve heard nothing but good things about the Vag.
Which UC rod would you use w/ aTalica 12? 8ft or 7ft? Thanks.
Still looking :puff:
I just saw this on the news. It’s time for population control on these things.
Already asked Duran clamps. Nada.
Thanks for the heads up about Fisherman’s Access. I purchased the M1 SMX90H from them. Looking for a 90M now. Thanks.
I already have the 90H. Looking for a new 90m. Thanks.
PM sent on swim bait lot. I’ll take them. Thanks.
Tib doesn’t make one for the 300. Which Tib clamp are you using for the 300? Thanks
Damn. I have family in AZ and north Scottsdale area is nice. Lots of development going on.
Never. I take care of all my gear. I don’t abuse.
Fuji sic. Don’t go cheap on components.
I need a clamp for my Tranx 300. Any suggestions? Thanks.
Dude could’ve waited to touch the fish. Could’ve gotten gaffed
I saw three boats fishing a closed off area at Cat last week while on a sport boat. Guess this is the new trend.
I think I saw them at Islands tackle
:appl: PQ is a well oiled operation. Can’t wait for my trip in September.
You’re asking for it when you take pictures of under size fish. Slam dunk case for DFW.
Rent gear if you don’t have it
Have fun and hopefully catch fish
Take it to 5 star.
Call Fishermen’s Access I think I saw a couple psw909s for 45% off.
Reel should sell fast. GLWS.
Which rod do y’all use for your Trinidad 14a? What lb test do y’all use? I would love to hear feedback. Thanks.
Iron man 1’s are DEADLY
Just go and fish
Awesome pictures :appl:
I just got a Phenix M1 SMX-90H DH at Fisherman’s Access in Brea for a steal of a deal. They still have around 8 more rods along with some black...
I was on a sport boat yesterday. Yellows are 12-20 lbs. We fished the front side and later the isthmus. All fish caught was on bait. 25lb test is...
Not many culinary cooks on 3/4 day boats. LR yes.
Interesting. Dont see anything different besides a paint job. Thanks for sharing.
I don’t think you can repair your rod.
Honesty, an dying trait. Good karma coming your way.
Mission Belle. Awesome boat.
Please fuck his ass up. :Beat_Them
Johnnies in Pasadena or Savon Tackle
Any flight restrictions with drones at Cat and SCI?
Does the buyer need a uhaul to pick his loot.
Should be a good trip. Yellows and WSB. Have fun.
Boat traffic is no joke tomorrow.
Follow the Pursuit
Check your pm
Anything new and exciting coming out?
Rod is pending.
PQ if you can get on.
Attention to detail. You’re a construction guy so you should of measured twice before you cut.
Nice set. GLWS. Go Clips!
Rod is pending. Thanks.
Sorry no shipping. Thanks.
Replied to PM.
Tiburon clamp. I have a tranx 300 that I want to slap on a deckhand stick but Tiburon doesn’t make a clamp for the 300. Thoughts?
How do y’all safely get rid of old fishing hooks? Don’t want to throw them in the trash or in the ocean. Thanks.
:appl: Hopefully y’all left them a FAT tip
Dialed in always. :appl:
I avoid both boats.
It’s been slow for the fleet these past couple of days. The Native son got a couple of yellows but they had like 70 on the boat. Pursuit is combat...
