Can I see a photo of mom and dad please thank you
Do you trim the skin before or after it the smoker?
My 15T will be on a 76UC Raptor or a PHD760x2h
With the free maintenance for the first 5 years I've always sent in my reels every year.. if its free why not make sure the gear is well taken...
When I used to live up in LA this is exactly what I would do... one I was too exhausted to drive home safely... so I would get a room near by use...
Gary I have a never used for 975 I live in Rancho Bernardo let me know
Mak10 sold... still got the mak16’s
Sorry not looking for any trades.
I got a black one of your interested let me know
Yes sorry was sold.
Updated with PHOTOS!! First come first served!
Will post all the photos when i get home today... Like a dumbass i only took the photo of the boxes... while nice they dont mean crap lol
I'm reworking my gear so all my Black Okuma Makairas are for sale... they are all in MINT condition, and have been serviced by okuma every year......
predator in 7'6 or 8' imo
MAK or VISX 16 on a UC Centaur a great 60-100 setup... Or the new MAK15T /VISX12 on a UC Raptor 50-80# setup
Really depends on what your future...
Since your planning to fish the 2/3 day range your going to need a 40/50# setup... a talica 12 on the 760xh would be perfect and can also be used...
You can call or just order through the Okuma site.
Got all mine from amazon easy peasy
Josh bump this up when it gets closer... never know what’s gonna happen that’s why we call it fishing
I say keep it send it in to get blueprinted... 12 for 40/50/60 16 for 60/80, this also depends on what kind of trips etc you plan to go on
Looks like price changed to 599 oh well... looks like I’m getting that uc viper
Well fuck he’s down the street might be giving myself a nice Christmas gift
New loann, and watch the counts
What do you currently own? I would fill a line class need that you have as to just picking up a random reel. Jmo
Steal at 450
Also keep on mine as line is peeing off your drag pressure is increasing... I set my mak16 with 100# at 25 at strike, but just below the strike...
The rule of thumb is that you lose roughly 11-13% of the body weight from the guts, gills and blood loss
So take a 200# freshly landed fish and...
Ok so that makes a lot of sense now... tape weight is obviously an estimate... also you need to account 11-13% for the guts, Gill and blood......
5 star weight includes the head, unless the policy has hanged they don’t accept headless fish.. how did you come to your weight or 200? Was that...
Next in line, where in San Diego are you?
Do we know what colors the Mk15T will be available in yet? Any special colors for 2019?
Just wish it came in black oh well looks like I’m adding a new color to the collection... who wants an andros 16a
I would have a 20-25#, 40-60# and a 80-100# never know what size school you come across
I’m interested in a black mak20 is the Op isn’t
Depends on how far back your flying the yummy but I would think atleast a penn visx 20/mak20 but a 30 would be better
Would the chef take it and serve as a snack on the trip?
I personally use a 76 UC Viper on a mak20sea, soft top enough to fish 80 with the backbone to fish 130
I saw him at the Carlsbad one last week, I got his business card I’ll PM it to you when I get home
Komado joe will be at a few Costco’s San Marcos and chill vista if I remember corrctly starting the 8th for the Road show great time to pick one...
Jamie I’ll give you a buzz this weekend, I misread my info that I had on the mak20 it’s filled with 100# treadlock with the final 100 yards of 130#
Pelagic outfitters is having 20% off for Black Friday weekend would be a great time to nab a top of the line reel at a discount
Here is all you need to know :D
I’m taking the following tonight:
Mak10 SEa on a phd700xh 40-50# for yellowfin just Incase,
Andros 16a on a phd760x2h for 60#
Mak16SEa on a UC 76...
So I move the raptor up to 80# or add an 80# rod to my list? I’ve been eyeing a 76viper for some time
Here is my current heavy list help would be greatly appreciated.
Andros 16a 80# JB on UC 76 Raptor
Trin 16/20 good for 30-40# and yoyo/ surface irons... you can’t expect these big bluefin to be available every year
But if you want a bigger...
Sadly sounds like you missed it by a day
I think the belle has rsw, not too sure about the other two options
Simply put boogier on the San Diego is da man!
Not having the line wet to me would be the reason that your knot failed... I also got a pair of line pullers which help me to cinch down
Phone order Phills BBQ and enjoy at the landing with a nice pint
Which Costco if you don't mind me asking
I recently went through this myself, the legal letter is if you don't own the boat( basically need to show lien holder), since I own mine I was...
I personally think it was very nice of the Navy to ask nicely and to post a reminder. They very easily could've had the Coast Guard on standby...
I personally always fish a short floor leader... I would setup for 15-20, 25-30, and 40....
Start off with 25-30, if it goes full wide open then...

Booger on the San Diego or toro on the liberty

Sorry for the hijack, How would you guy for 50,60,80 with these 3 sticks phd700xh, uc raptor76, phd760x2h
Vagabond has a 2.5 day this month
If no other choice available the overnights followed by a 1.5 would be the way to imo
I would personally take a 1.5 day over two back to back overnights, but would really look into a 2-2.5 day trip. Last I heard late night drop...
It appears that you're in San Diego, if so you should just go into one of the tackle shops and put the reel in your hands to see how you like how...
which color are you looking for? Might make it much easier instead of people making offers to you that you have zero interest in
Gas money in hand let me know when

Your going to love your mak16
Sadly it looked like most of the LR boats were under maintance... I got a take a look at the vagabond even though it's under repair which was...
I'm on this trip looking forward to sharing the rail with everyone
If this will be your next setup what is your current setups?
Location willing to ship?
I do it on my phd809xh, but I did just get a komoto 450 and phd869xh (to trying to att to your tacklehoeness, it well you knooooww)
I would say 90-100% of mak10 owners use it for this line class... for Guadalupe I'm planning to use my mak10 for 50#, andros 16 for 60# mak 16 for...
Honestly I feel that if you start with a trin 16na/a or a talica 12ii you'll eventually end up getting the other LOL... one of those can't miss...
I also have a talica 10 and I tend to reach for my 12 8 of 10 times.... if you only could get one I feel the 12 is much more versatile
While a 2speed would be over kill on a dropper loop no reason why you couldn't or shouldn't use it... I use my talica 12ii dropper loop in...
This past year i got a few 70-100# BFT on my Makaira 10 SEa 40# Floro on a PHD700XH 30-80, it worked and some were quick battles while others had...
Yup got one for my guadalupe trip and moving the mak16 to 80#
The MAK15 is in fact wider then a MAK 10 for higher line capacity, all other specs are the same. Due to the increased line capacity many use the...
You know it really comes down to what you got the two reels at auction for... and what the replacement cost would be... You won't see many guys...
Whatever you plan to use the metaloid 12 for, the mak 10 will do better unless you plan to use it to toss irons.... MAK 10 is my favorite reel...
The talica 12 can also piggieback into a yoyo reel, i got a nice 76# BFT this year on my Talica12
I would go predator I have my raptor on a mak16, but really depends on application and what else is in your arsenal
Entered, photo of me at san celmente this year with my with makaria 10 on a Big bluefin!

you would use it in a pick bite or when you fish anchovies... not saying you can't fish anchovies on a level drag as i do at times, but the star...
Welcome and glad you've gotten hooked on the sport, everyone else has basically answered your setup question.
Since your andros 5A is 50 backed,...
Does it have to be Shimano? I love my talica's as I have 4 of them, 12ii for 40-50#bait and yoyo. But to me for what your asking I feel a makaria...

is it best to order the Fujinon 7x50 FMTR-SX online or are the prices fairly similar locally in SD, where we can support the local brick and mortar?

I'm interested, was planning to do a sea trail but whooo knows why not :p
i'd like to get in line... cash in hand would like both setups
Looking to have 2-4 trolling rods made, located in San Diego... my previous builder got out of the game so i need to find replacement builder......
Picked up a 22' IMP a few months ago and after endless repairs finally ready to get it wet, 1st private boat so never had the need for trolling...
b-Reel since you got your trolling rigs do you mind if i hijack this post? Just got my new to me boat and need to add some trolling rigs...
Depends on your plans... but since you have a Talica 10ii, why not a talica 12ii? yoyo, 40-50# bait
Hoping to fish with you one day Greg!
I've gotten a ticket recently they do not allow overnight parking anymore... Well that's according to officer brown
I'll take it! Pm sent
what does a gaff like this typically cost?
this is exactly what i do... btw most of the SD processors will take your catch... if your coming in late 5 star has a drop off.
40# floro on a talica 12, I step it up or down from there... If it's wide up I'll typically move up to 50 when its time to retie
Where are you located?

I've really gotten into the phenix rods and have slowly been updating my old calstars...
I currently have 2 PHD809XH and 2 PHD700XH...
I would have thought that the MAK15 would take more then 300yards of 80# braid... is it filled to the brim? What kind of braid if you don't mind...
i wish that mak15 was black....
Here's one loaded with 400 yards of 65# pp
Drag specs are actually the same as the MAK10, just higher line capacity.
I think the main issue with fishing 80# is line capacity... I'm mean yes i could fish mine with 80# with only 65# braid but then why not just fish...
I personally use my MAK10 as a 40/50 but i do know a few guys who use 60# on it.
max drag at strike is 27# so in theory you should be able to go...

If any of you guys going out solo tomorrow are in sd please let me know I'd love to go out with you!
ill give this a try, thank you. I'd also assume that you leave it in the vacuum pack while it sits in the ice bath?
How long would you recommend...
I use 50# izor blue With my drag set to about 17#'s hold on to your rod when you set your drag high, I like to use the rail.

Sorry to somewhat hijack this tread, but on a trip like this what setups would you bring?
Can i get a rough idea of which reels were stolen?
I came across a really fishy add for 12 reels and was hoping they were yours.
I have mine on a phenix phd809xh
I'm coming up from San Diego to Newport tomorrow if you want to check it out. Let me know and I'll load her up in the car.
Where are you located? I have an 800H I can sell you. Just got my new phenix rods.
Chris at Pelagic might have a met 12 as well.
Awesome thanks guys, I'll pair the 700xh with an andros a 12s and hope to slay them next season
If you were to double up a rod for hoo and yo yo would it be a hybrid 700xh or the 809xh? Both rated at 30-80
