i dont give crap to deadbeat deckhands, who about 75% of the time are just helping and chatting with their friends who will give them the JP in...
probably 1200 total if he didnt go with one of the big outfits.
i have the parts to convert this to a tn16dc if anybody is interested in buying the reel. i can do the converstion myself too.
if you say ANYTHING negative about a sport boat the white knights will come out in full force.
they are sierra mackerel. and they are obnoxious. the saw off lures like no other fish ive seen. you dont even feel the bite, your line just goes...
this seems like the best place on the forum to ask. what hooks would you all recommend to replace the stock LC110 hooks? i am planning on rigging...
the orignal shimano orca are good stickbaits too
if you start rattling off "rod nomenclature" i guarantee you wont be invited to more cocktail parties
how much? where in ensenada is your boat located? pm me
looks like Shimano just slapped Avet right across the face with the speedmaster II
For sale is 2 shimano trinidad 30s. both are serviced. one is scratched up, but mechanically fine. the other one is very clean, and has upgraded...
i have a BNIB PG if you are interested
interested in any trades for that ocea plugger?
i dont see any reason why it wouldn't help. you should be gluing your swimbaits regardless of splitting, helps them stay on the hook so much better
i have a BNIB tranx 500pg. pm me
be advised, a 5000 sized daiwa reel is a LOT bigger than a 5000 shimano
i have a 500pg bnib. pm me for price
i like it for like a half day 3/4 day bag, but i cant justify owning 4 tackle bags. darn
Bump, tn30 and tranx still available
Bump! Hurry, they're going fast

dont ever dunk your reels in water. so many terrible suggestions in this thread
i love the samurai braid, i also really liked the colors on the metered braid. i wish they would bring it back
I got nothing
i have both trinidad 12 and 14 in super clean condition.
"ordered to stay away from the pier"
what are they going to have officers posted there looking for him?
What a joke
used but in good condition. new gears, bearings, handle, and swapped out black knob. comes with clamp. asking 380 OBO. i can be reached by PM or...
upgrade to the oil filled bearings from the trinidad A :D
using hashtags on bloody decks tells me you dumb you are. LOL
I hate how people act like they are making some great sacrifice so we should just write blank checks to the boat crew when it...
what sizes you have available?
yeah im planning on putting it on the US version of the jigger, the trinidads. maybe one on my calcutta 800f
if it has bushings in the sideplates you can replace them with bearings from a gold trinidad or the new silver trinidads for increased freespool
take a high def video of you chocking the chicken staring straight at the camera and send it to him. he will be intimidated by the total power...
I want the carbon handle, but for my casting reel so I feel like that big knob would get in the way
can you replace the carbon knob with the stock one?
probably means the DC unit is nice and loud.

there is not enough specimens left to repopulate, the vaquita is gone, they just dont want to admit it.

And I hope you all stay on your side of it. Including all the overnight and multi-day boats.
and another bump
For sale is 3 shimano trinidads. all have signs of use, scratches here and there, but all 3 are in good mechanical condition. they have all been...
how much do you want for the 815s? interested in trades?
DM me if you dont like that size. I have a sideplate, frame, and spool to turn your 30 into a 16.
For sale is an excellent condition Daiwa Pluton. it is like new inside and out. You would be hard pressed to find one in this condition. asking...
trade ja for a gold trinidad 12 or 14
nothing will get a scratch out. maybe some tiny scuffs on a painted low profile baitcaster with some sort of clear coat can be taken out the same...
can you send me antoher text? i accidently deleted your number, and the guy didnt buy the 14 after all
For sale are 3 gold Trinidads. 1 12, 1 14, and 1 20. All have line on them and they are serviced.
200 for the 14
agreed with the saltist. they are built like tanks, can take some abuse.
those are interesting "jig" choices.
they dont all swim the same
the lancevo 5x has a smaller profile and a tighter swim, its my personal favourite.
the 7x works well when the...
otay mesa and all other points of entry are still open FYI
would you be willing to ship it to me at my expense?
Daiwa samurai or Daiwa J braid. followed by Power pro Maxcuattro or Super slick.
depends on your reel as well. you're not going to retrieve the same lure on a tranx, as you would on a slower reel like an old saltiga or an avet....
interested in trade for fishing equipment?
buy the stella and trade me LOL
trade for shimano Trinidad 20DC lol??
i dont see why his height and age would make a difference.
how can it be a one off if i have one in my tackle box right now?
its not a 1 off, it was a special edition given out at fred hall a few years...
good god i instantly knew what show you were refering to
Tiburon frame, appears to be unused. Doesn't have what reel it is for on the box, but based on some googling, it appears to go to a Penn 500....

sign me up. I have experience driving and fishing in baja. i have all my licenses, etc dialed in, and can even drive myself
id buy it off you. message me
id say youd be good up to like a #50 tuna. start looking for good chiropractors, fishing large tuna with spin gear will wreck you.
just get yourself verified on one of the better exchanges
i wouldn't use coinbase. i was charged about 30 bucks for a 100 dollar BTC transfer to my paper wallet.
i had a lady in michoacan tell me i could kill somebody with the fishing line. I told her it would be easer to bludgeon them to death with the...
trade you an excellent condition trinidad 40 for the lot
more like all the rich people that own beachfront property dont want all the riff-raff obstructing their view.
This is what he is talking about
look for a used reel on here or craigs that fits your budget. because brand new 50-75 will not get you much, where as you could probably find an...
my pelagic series rods are awesome.
the part itself is very cheap. any reel repair shop should be able to do it for you.
what kinda reel you interested in?
or he can learn a trade and start a business, nothing wrong with being a plumber, electritian, mechanic, welder, fabricator, etc. We've stopped...
i went with some reels in my overhead. they did not like the fishing line on them
does it freestyle, or just pre-written material when it raps?? :D:D:D
if you can bleed them and keep them COLD they are edible. or just smoke them. you could smoke a shoe for long enough and it would be edible.
1st gen shimano torium- 60-80 bucks
carbon drags 15 bucks
trinidad DC click pawl and spring 5 bucks
used #40 stick 50-100 bucks
Crinkle cut fries. everything else is a downgrade
you can expect great views
if the 16 feels better in your hands then use that. it is very unlikely you will wish you had the 20 with the local fish we have, especially when...
looks like the island is shut down to large boats, including the trawlers and the SD long range fleet. expect the fishing to get better in the...
Barrys are pretty good smoked too
they work really well for bonito too
its a company that makes rompers for men. like, not real men, but biologically male........
I have a 200DPV and 100D in like new condition if you are interested. am local too.
trade for an abu revo toro NACL 50? lol
10-15. some larger ones mixed in
yeah, i was blanking on what to call it
i was just there on tuesday. yellows were being caught on flylined(with a small egg sinker) squid. bones were available for those who threw the...
sand dabs. all boats, all year round.
remember to bring a mouthguard with you.
if you are catching better fish, no sense in keeping them. if you need to bring SOMETHING home and all that's biting is boccacio, then fuck it.
it seems everyone just ignored your "lightweight" requirement and reccomended penns. I would say a new torium A or saltiga A, lexa 400 or tranx...
why even bother with a jackpot anyway, if the money "goes to the crew"? it just promotes lazy deckhands who chit-chat with their buddies or girls...
nope. your best bet is ordering online
Thanks, keep me posted
they pop up every now and again
seeing as how i bought it from you, ill probably do that :P
looking for an albackore backpack, better condition is preferred. the zippers on mine are starting to give out.

the weekend of the 18-20th? ill be there with some spearos
oh boy. let me get my lube ready and PM me
I was a tech at daiwa for a minute, mid december is what i heard.
jimmy uses vmc hooks on all his jigs, i have personally seen the hooks myself. he also gave me some prototype colors that will release at fred...
pretty straightforward, the anti reverse pawls can be kind of a pain to align sometimes
so much faster than uni to uni, and i havent had it fail. works on everything from finesse bass setups, to #60 yoyo setups
i haven't checked out the new BG closely yet, i couldn't give you detailed information
have you checked out the new saltist spinning reels yet? lots of bang for your buck
id have no problem throwing that in blue water where getting snapped off in structure isnt an issue.
lexa 400 is larger, comes in more speed options, and has a longer power handle than the 300. from what i could tell when i had a revo toro 50, the...

i have one. pm me
I really like that idea. also, take silica packets from electronics or other things and stuff them in empty compartments to help prevent rust on...
i dont know about no 3 minute freespool, but there is a noticeable difference from the oil ive used at daiwa and shimano.
i got it!
happy with the oil.
i can vouch for pollo. super chill, will put you on the fish.
i sent you payment, just following up on wether you got it?
will you ship them? if so ill take a few, just for shits and giggles.
find me a job down there and ill join you:p
i was there 3 weeks ago, already want to go back....
Lucanus jigs are INSANE in san quintin
mine were closer to 5-10 lbs, the guys on the troll were catching the dinks, but i do see your point. small yellows are tastier anyway
i was in ensenada sunday, heard the same story of discontent with the SD fleet. looks like your overnight-3 day trips will now be anchored at san...
i went out yesterday too. Wide open yellows, all mine on surface iron, some bonita. wind picked up, so we went in early with 40 yellows on the boat.
what are you looking as a trade for it?
just a joke, hermano! got no room for anything other than fishing equipment!
I NEED A WSB
ill be there next saturday fishing with kelly, i guess ill have to bring my Resortera to deal with the polaris JAJAJAJAJAJA
The way it looks, it's too little too late. They are no longer welcome period
the mexicans ARE sportfishing. i have personally have had a bite shut down because 3 different sportboats showed up and anchored on the high...
look up a post from captain juan sq. ive never fished with him, but ive only heard good things. ive fished with http://www.kmfishing.com/ and...
naa. if you're driving that far, you may as well make the extra trek to san quintin. better accomodations and better fishing IMO
sounds like a blast if you bring the bass gear along
everything that has an edge at my house is shave-sharp now.
jesus, maybe they should spend more time sending out orders, and not continously writing on their website how much better they are than yeti
IMO Ensenada is SUPER hit or miss. i would suggest san quintin, or BOLA/Gonzaga
we need to find a way to convince china that sea lion livers give them raging boners. then the sea lion problem will go away in a jiffy.
those things freespool like a motherfucker if you set them up right
unfortunatelly not. he had other okuma stuff on the boat, maybe an okuma spinner?
you get what you pay for, unfortunately. we got 2 bluefin over 150 and 1 at 80 on a phenix popping rod matched with a shimano stella 14000. on the...
we usually comb throught all our luggage on the way back and make sure something like that doesnt come into play. my dad was turned around once in...
oh culprits are usually never discovered. the reels tend to just be magically "found" on some corner of the boat
worst we've had is a guy snooping all over our ice chests.

tiburons pangas in SQ has licenses.
IT WASNT EVEN FOR ANYTHING FREE! I ASKED HIM "are they giving you anything for taking those pictures" TO WHICH HE REPLIED "no". RIDICOLOUS
all these "apparel" companies have promoted this behaviour. they care more about clicks(and the advertising revenue that can come from it) than...
if you are so against using smartphones and technology you probably shouldn't be on an internet forum, eh? I bet people like you were waving you...
yeah, youll see an ad for "WTS DRONE, SLIGHT WATER DAMAGE" LOL!!!!
Good to have you back, Bantam1
as long as the chinese think totoaba bladders will give them boners all the fish in that area are screwed. also, you all think you are saints, but...
went cabrilla fishing in gonzaga this weekend. they absolutelly wrecked the paint on a new jig, the jig is completely bare now. im just going to...
I'll be there too!
you joke but.....
I looked around my desk at work. But your stuff isnt here.
that website is a ghost town. The "surface iron superstar" kids they wanted to fill their forum are on instaface and bookgram begging for Salty...
im hoping i can dive with a whale shark!
best way to stay on the ensenada counts. or you make friends with charter boat captains that give you the...
dunno, thats up to the landing
I took these pictures. Trust me, they work
lol i told him to come out with a red crab color since thats what was popular right now
Yup, ill be there july 12th on the liberty
thanks for all the info! I'm fluent in spanish, so the language barrier wont be an issue. The phone number for Jesus requires international code...
we regularly take 4 rods per head on our trips. then again, we are mexican, so its a little easy to talk your way out of a spot
shit, im hoping to be down there that weekend too! first time out there, just going to wing it! hoping to cross cabrilla off the list
sent you a PM
planning on heading out there soon, does anyone have any connections on pangeros that can go to the islands, and any leads on where to stay? we...
vmc hooks,someone on a trip i was on pulled in a #50 bluefin with one last week
yup, gw swap meet. I've used 6 different jigs from him, all of them swim. again, money back guarantee.
my new favorite surface irons are made by caivo for jimmys fishing long beach. They are guaranteed swimmers or your money back. I still have...
trinidad doesnt have a handle tripped clutch.............
easy to learn, easy to tie while out on the water.
hey i bought that albackore!
Would you consider selling that cosmo? ;)
I hear its a pain in the ass for your passengers though.
Could not agree more with the "get on it" part.
i see a toad calico there too!
ill be out there this weekend!
stay at don eddies, fish with Kelly at K&M sportfishing. he is the man. i have also fished with Garcias pangas and had good experiences.
I hope people enjoyed their 50 dollar fred hall ticket, because thats as much use you will have gotten out of signining up for CCA
factoring in inflation, those trips cost exactly the same as sportboat trips do today.
was there this weekend. shit conditions, still managed some good fish. yellows on the surface iron at the island, caught calicos, barracuda, and a...
yup. the drive to san quintin has some dead zones, but san quintin itself has 4gLTE all over. i use it all the time
are there pangeros that will take you to the enchanted islands
just go to the show and enjoy yourself. I've never seen any deals worth going crazy over. you're going to buy stuff whether it's on sale or not...
+1 for garcias. i use them all the time, no issues whatsoever
Why wouldnt you try out jigs before taking them out on a trip?
Kind of a sad affair. Got to meet Rich from Baitwraps, bought some surface irons. not much to buy, save your wallets and admission money for fred...
funny, i was with eddy at garcias this last weekend
erendiras isnt worth it. its pretty much the same price to just go out of san quintin. much better fishing and better sleeping accomodations too.
it is gone. I have gotten the chance to use one, it was a whole different experience fishing rockfish.
its not even the same ballpark. Conventional to low profile baitcaster.
but i do agree with the person above who said to look into a TranX
I hear they hit the surface iron really well, so id love to see them around
get out on the bay and start practicing
If you try to convey sarcasm over the internet you're going to have a bad time.....
get the tmcj90hb jig stick and you have yourself a baaaaad surface iron setup ;)
not very fisherman friendly. had to miss a flight and spend an extra day in mexico because of the hassle they gave me with my reels.
^ that really isn't necessary, the new anti-reverses on the new torium are much stronger than the old ones
i bet you heard this from a reputable source right? not the dumb-dicks from bloody decks?
how does it hold up to saltwater?
when working on reels, some grease syringes will help you out quite a bit. they can be bought on amazon
you can call customer service, or order parts on fish.shimano.com
no, there are lug plugs you can use. part number tgt1725
the 300e handle would probably fit, but you would also need the 300e nut and nut retainer/screw
yeah, were going out there on the 11th with garcias pangas.
donde estan las corbinas juan?!?!?!
good luck, i had to pay quite a bit for mine.
yeah... shimano is still nowhere near close to being out of parts for the trinidads.
cant wait to take a panga out there.
the computer assembly alone costs about 420 bucks
i saw that. someone told me they only take direct bank transfer and then never send a product.
Fits on the shaft for securing the side plate
Torium 16HG. but id probably go with a 20, for the extra line capacity
its probably the best surface iron reel i have ever fished. i had mine with #50 power pro backing with #40 topshot, matched with an old Calcutta...
just be sure to get that with a short throw shifter and a limited slip differential.
i was there last weekend. excellent bottom fishing as always, wide open bonita on the surface, caught all our yellows on the yo-yo. there was red...
where are you located? are you open to any trades?
you list 2 sizes the torium has never come in. if anything, following the previous line, they would release a 14 size and a 40/50 size. if any...
You can try taking some fine steel wool to the edges of the spool. that might help.
i saw it in san quintin. i saw exactly what the news was saying, but it slowly spread out into the the halo you are talking about.
yeah. deep drops, but they yield good rewards. Big reds, copper rockfish. We only fished lures, no dropper loops, and smashed them. a kid on our...
lol there arent any charters in popotla. you just show up, hop on some dudes panga, and off you go.
9/10 chance it was assembled incorrectly.
Onemorcast, good and cheap rock cod fishing out there. want to try calico fishing in that kelp too.
I love me some yo-yo yellows
Anybody out there this weekend?
IMO, if you're making the drive that far, you may as well go all the way to san quintin. the rooms at the fish camp are bad (see the post...
still available? ill take the 10/0s
g-loomis GL2 swimbait 7'11 25-60 lb. lightweight, and phenomenally strong.
still waiting on that article....
anyone been out lately? i saw the report with the "26lb" WSB, but has anyone else been down there? headed down the 7-8th, would like to know what...
might. dont have a handle on hand(heh) to try it out. the drive shaft looks to be the same size. i just feel like the gold handle would match the...
your best bet is probably the calcutta 400bsv handle.
not sure if the 300ej handle will fit.
full to the brim
depend where you are fishing, and what you are fishing for.
probably. the same thing happened last year, around the same time. a couple of stragglers were caught, people got all riled up, and they were a...
i was at the longfin yesterday, they are littered with all sizes and colors.
did you buy your clamp online, or do you know where i could walk into get it?
as soon as i come up with the cash, you friggin go and sell it.
congrats, free bump
so 20 bucks and a stick of gum wont cut it?????
That hook might be too closed to work properly.
you can use some dots of superglue at points of the raceway to secure it to the sideplate.
That is 100% accurate. shimano will not work on these reels, they are different internally than the trinidad "A"
ALL trinidads,toriums, and tekotas have that pin. if you cant re-install it the reel will still work, but you will lose the "click" when you turn...
i called DFG caltip once regarding a CL ad, then saw it about a week later still being posted.
so im not sure what is supposed to happen to them.
this seal beach?
it is the 60 size, and it will take about 290 yards of #55 daiwa saltiga boat braid. It was about 270 yards of line on it now.
for sale is my revo toro. it is in good condition. this is the second season i have fished with it. it is spooled with #55 Daiwa saltiga boat...
For sale is my daiwa 5000h spinning reel. it is a great little workhorse, perfect for the local tuna, yellows, and dodos that have been and are...
for sale is my international trolling rig. comes with a penn international in good condition and a full roller rod with an aluminium reel seat...
if you're interested i have a daiwa saltist 5500h for sale for $150. comes spooled with 70lb line.
if im not mistaken, bluefin is legal to take for mexican boats. looks like i need to hit up charro this weekend :p
goodness. it seems this question pops up once a week on the forums.
well, I see old model baitrunners in good condition. those reels are about 19 years old. now paying 50 dollars for something that will last me...
take a flat fall jig with you if you have any available, 80-130g size. ive limited in as little as 30 minutes with them
free bump for you. its a fantastic reel, freespools better than the new chronarch ci4+
not really. you would have to reel them very quickly to get them to stay on the surface.
the 3 farthest to the right are surface irons, the others are yo-yo jigs
3 options for power pro. not a single option for daiwa saltiga boat braid or samurai braid.
no, the talicas have different handle assemblies.
i love the phenix m1 inshore 8'2. caught yellowfin and large yellows with it.
the chances of something like a trinidad(or ocea jigger) failing are very low IMO. one of the reasons even the old gold trinidads still fetch so...
if shimano USA doesnt carry the ocea jigger in their inventory, why would they warranty it? they would have to pay for processing and freight for...
local or offshore?
its really a matter a what you NEED because it can do both well.
i think he is talking about this
all reels still for sale!
thats why Japantackle.com exists! but it does suck to pay a premium.
60 lb pline cxx
funny how its always the same 20 people who claim you would sell thousands of 40NAs. even in the classified section, the number of th14,16,and 20s...
they do. the replaced parts on the 14 were due to heavy corrosion issues that came from the previous owner.
on the other hand, the Dartanium...
or newells are overrated
the phenix is pending sale. if the buyer doesnt pick it up on wednesday, ill hit you up
yeah, but im keeping it :p Phenix megalodon 8'8"
for sale is several rods and reels. all have served me well, but im upgrading all my gear. i can be reached by PM or at 714.722.0927. NO TRADES...
if you dont like trinidads then why even bother coming in this thread? is your life so sad you need to be negative on the internet to hopefully...
i have an 8'2 for sale. pm me
I suck even more than this guy. send them to me instead
you may want to take a look at your hooks instead, i fish with a 6:2:1 reel, and have never spun off a fish.
it was speared, not hook/line. buddy got a #75 yesterday
neither do I. ive had my passport for years, i dont even fish the sport boats anymore, the drive down to ensenada or san quintin is a lot more...
yeah, charro from the no limits told me the yellows are boiling, but they dont want to play
they look the same, but sometimes small details(drag plates, etc.) wont match up, and stuffing it with regular ej parts would result in it not...
aside from the color, the reels are almost identical in specs. plus, its a nightmare finding parts sometimes for those japanese reels. if you want...
eh, if you have the budget, the trinidad is worth it over the torium
no you're thinking of Avets.
tady 45 and salas 7x for your surface iron needs. Also, tuna LOVE the shimano coltsnipers. i havent thrown poppers at tuna yet, so maybe someone...
found what i was looking for on that site...
didnt know daiwa made stellas ;)
i like the tekotas, and they are solid reels if you take care of them.the 700lc and the 500lc are almost identical, the 700 just has a longer...
i just bought some Yo-zuri sashimi sliders and sashimi bulls, and was wondering what the best single hooks would be to run on them, or if the...
keep in mind that if the DC module dies, thats it. Shimano cant replace it any more.
because the TranX is not meant for jig sticks. the low profile frame would probably get in the way of the clamps they use.
surf fishing will put a thrashing on any reel, no matter how careful you are with it. like JFK said, i wouldnt put those 200 size curados withing...
better than both IMO.
I just got back from castros this weekend
the fishing does not compare between the two. much more structure and larger fish in SQ, i had no chance...
carabuna wax, or any car wax. they all have a clear coat, and protecting it with wax will prolong their life. it should also bring back some shine...
i wax my rods every once in a while, it helps keep fish scales off the rod.
you can also spray down the guides with a little WD-40 and wipe it...
Yeah, that carlos guy you recommend has cancelled on me TWICE because of "bad weather", even though buoyweather and surf reports all report fine...
popotla? make sure the waves arent higher than 6 inches, or they will cancel on you....
you could try out one of the ugly stick tiger lite jigging rods. they are like 60 bucks
woah, what species?
oof, you're going to have a tough time selling spinners on this side of the world.
ill feed them a .38 right through their forehead
yes. or the braid will slip. unless you have one of them fancy Penn battles that have a grip built into the spool to prevent slipage
its always a treat to find them in the bargain bins in the local tackle shops;)
I've done this as well
its in san carlos, Mexico
putting your location would probably help.
I was going to say, for a company as large as Shimano, there is no way you couldnt find opportunities for growth. I just sent my resume in!
ps, the coltsniper only comes up to 100g. the flat fall is the one that goes up to 160
than being on a long range boat
i didnt even buy a US fishing license this year, since im going...
yeah id rather charter a boat out of mexico than deal with 30 people on a sportboat.
the trinidad also has 9 bearings, compared to the toriums 3
best bet IMO would be shimano baitrunners or penn battle 6-8000
on ugly stick tiger lite...
talica 16ii received today, very happy with it!
except his birthday lists him as being 30.....
this handle looks great on the...
are those 544s any good? i found on in an old tackle box i had laying around, threw it in my bag
every time i tie the FG knot the way he does it, the 2 hitch knots at the end always come undone and the knot just unravels
PM'd you about the talica
the extra 100 is worth it just for how sexy that reel looks.
you can expect surface and yoyo yellows, and the usual rockfish.
sounds good, PM me your details! i live in westminster, so we should be pretty close by!
its worth nothing. ill give you a dollar for it.:D
ive seen them go from 70-100 bucks
The back pack i believe
PM me if you are willing to sell it
looking for one in good condition.
id go with the metaloid, or anything with a narrow spool.
After Blackfish, Sea World is desperate to get back on peoples good graces. doesn't matter if they are actually hurting the marine ecosystem to do it.
I am interested in the 60 lb flouro, can you PM me how much you have left?
talica 8- 390 yards of 50 lb power pro.
come on man, it took like 30 seconds to find on the fish.shimano.com page.
i don't know what reel you are using man. my only complaint about the calcutta D was the knob, which my dad quickly changed out to an aftermaket...
rockfish candy. just have to rig it properly. i caught a jhonny bass in mexico on a similar jig that would have been a world record, had my dad...
my sister has also passed by multiple times with an expired passport, and she is 16
ive had deckhands not gaff a halibut on my line when it was well within gaffing range and hten had the fish spit the hook when i was in a jackpot....
i dont know about anyone else, but i took in my TN14 that was grinding when you turned the handle. I got it back in a week, good as new.
this video will tell you what you need to know about the Shimano Stella
if you're boat is US based, then you will be following mexican regulations.
if you are fishing out of mexico, ive never met a captain that gave...
MJBfish, its been a while.
the bonito down in ensenada loved the maxel dragonflies.
is it stiff like regular power pro? or soft like the super slick 8?
shit, pretty much a perfect surface iron setup
For sure count me in
Isnt that Rada SC from youtube? i love his videos! could you PM me some details him? does he charter out his boat?
looking to go to san quintin in the near future, would you be able to do 3 adults and 2 kids on your boat?

for the flat fall, you can...
i put a split ring on the nose of them, i think it gives them more action, but its just my preference.
would you be willing to ship at buyers expense?
+1 for charkbait, unless you are using shimano gearLOL
"dont aim for the head"
the results speak for themselves. we werent getting anything on the troll or on live bait, but once i switched out to a popper, the bite...
the sashimi bull 150 is a perfect size. the smaller one seems almost like its TOO small, and would be difficult to cast, and the big one looks...
daiwa saltiga boat braid. ive replaced the power pro on all my reels with the daiwa braid.
I got one. 400, comes with line and a custom knob
from a business perspective, making the torium all the same sizes as teh trinidad would hurt trinidad sales IMO, so i cant see shimano copying all...
bantam1, can we ever expect to get the bottomship lure here in the states?
Yeah, it's kinda silly to go rockfishing without spectra IMO
rx1, could you give me some more details on the trip? he told me 7-1, how long did it take him to get to his spots? how deep were you fishing? was...
i spoke to the captain to ask him about booking a trip, and he said they had been hooking up to yellows on the yo-yo, so maybe those were your...
they work as well as the flat fall jig, plus they have the added benefit of having more action on an...
Avets do not come in high speed specs, plus they feel cheap to me. in ensenada my dad and the boat captain were all casting to boiling yellows,...
yeah, i decided to listen to the show for myself, instead of taking someones word for it
i wonder if that means the gold trinidads will no longer be serviced?
when is your trip? id like a report, i want to check him out as well.
i have a 16na with a custom knob and line for 380
The one in the classifieds is the older japan only calcutta conquest, based off the old style gold calcuttas. What flyliner is talking about is...

c&r fish yanked up from 300 feet? you're basically just going to be feeding pelicans at that point.
my Phenix M1 8'2 works well for me. buyt if you start getting into some larger tuna, the "non popping rods" that have the action you need might...
yeah, ive found sergio to just be a middle man, its better to just go down and talk to the captains yourself, you sometimes end up getting a...
P-line CXX 30 lb in smoke or clear
i have the 8'2, that i used with a Revo Toro NACl and a shimano orca to pretty good effect on Bonito. i just used a fast retrieve, with a sideways...
MJBfish's maxel jigs work great as well! i used the 130g rockfishing last weekend to good effect, even caught a bonito on it!
^that is important. different people prefer different knives. both my mom and dad hate my 15" forschner, but i can filet rockfish to tuna as fast...
Tape the reel? [media]
how can you attach a spinning reel onto that if it doesn't come with a reel seat?
i paid 3 dollars per jig for hooks, and they are more versatile than the flat falls, they can be worked on the retrieve, unlike the flat fall,...
looks like 2 per day, a maximum of 6 for multi-day trips.
Good thing yellowfin...
remember to go to mr churro when you're done fishing. just south of the three heads, EXCELLENT chocolate/syrup/carmel filled churros

my parents never bought me jack shit fishing related. i had to use a stick and mono i found in the garage untill...
you dont. when it breaks, if its still under warranty (boo shimano.) take it to irvine and swap it out. or places like the longfin do it for a fee
I wish. I've only ever seen one for sale, and the guy sold it the morning I was supposed to pick it up
i dont know if its true, but ive kept this link because i wanted one, but ended up with a 16na....

nobody said they were good at casting.....
check local pawn shops, swap meets, and craigslist.
message bantam1 on here. he might be able to help you
no need for corrosion prevention. i just rinse, and use an air gun/compressor (or computer compressed air) to blow all the water out of the guides...
you can sit there rigging up a hook, weight, and finding a lively sardine/anchovy. ill be dropping jigs and producing the same if not better...
unless you know spanish, you are going to have to resort to alot of pointing and shouting!
ive been using the flat falls for a while now. ive never used them for yellows or tuna, but ive pretty much abandoned using bait for rockfish...
if he took the reel back IMO he is kinda screwed. he was willing to accept it in that condition, so now they can say it WAS in that condition. I'm...
the tranx is actually cased in plastic. That's the main reason i never got one.
you could try texting the number he included....
they never have anything other than half dead anchovies
imagine the handle on the box is as long as your hand. that should give you a good size perspective
a guy at the fred hall show was telling us about popotla, but its been a while and i forgot what he told me. anyone know the deal down there?

I have a 16 NA I'd be willing to trade
is this still available?
after fishing he head into Tijuana to hit up our secret taco joint, and afterwards bounce out through Otay Mesa. its always been decent there.
it would help once they got off hte boat, but you could etch your name with a dremel or such on the plate that sits on your reel seat.
+1 to this. if there is current, i cant get bit worth a damn on my flat falls, i usually switched to squid-tipped lucanuses(lucani?)
so bantam, lets say my terez is covered under lifetime warranty and something happens to it and it has to be replaced. Will the replacement also...
pls buy this!
do you still have the blackmoon backpack?
i know its alot cheaper and fish eat it just as well!
we fished for yellowtail boils all day, and had enough leftover mackerel to anchor up and catch a few lings.
anytime ive been to the bait barge, its all anchovy. honestly just take some sabikis and make some mackarel, and jack mackerel(which are superior...

booo! i wanted to fish spotties off of it!
buyer fell through, BUMP!
i see 3 big hammer swimbaits with hooks. i thought you could only legally have 2 hooks on your line?
its stil too early to expect dorado out of ensenada. you can always go out "a boleto", just be sure to arrive a day prior to secure a spot. I...
first, does anyone make a specific narrow reel cover for it? i think the standard shimano neoprene cover looks very sloppy on it.
bump! 120 firm!
i have 6 rigged rapalas.
I use the sardine pattern, and i hear the squid and charteuse patterns work well too
the price is 140. every friday i drive down to SD by the miramar base for work, i could meet you then

fishing for rockfish: let the jig flutter to the bottom, and keep it there while lowering the tip of the rod. then i just bounce it up and down,...

i am located in orange county (westminster)
bump, 140 OBO!
custom wrapped 9 foot calstar 530, comes with deckhand grip. great for throwing irons at yellowtail, my pops just upgraded to a better rod. 160...
