At the risk of stepping in on the brilliant repartee that's being exchanged here lately, I recall the 2009 and 2010 trips differently.
Tuna never showed much interest in the super 7X's I showed to them, but the yellows at Cedros and Guadalupe seemed to like 'em pretty well.

On the nose.
Really? High end? 25-30lb.? Sounds like a Torsa 16 or TN 16-DC is in your future.
Thanks Steve. The boat leaves in 12 days.....the word "Priapism" comes to mind.
And the one he dropped at the LB FHS....."Aquavate"
As in "The Yoll will aquavate to get the Songee" "The Songee makes them aquavate"
I own both, and I use both.
TN 16 is a good jigging reel, but the Saltiga's better.
Kencor Zibra Z663080. Very forgiving rod, and some forgiving might be useful with that straight flouro-spectra connection.

NEENER NEENER, yourself. :hali_ruahahaha:
Most of that is news to me. That's good intel, right there.
Thank you, sir. :D
Food for thought, so to speak. :D
See you in line. :D
Mine does too. Considering that the reel was designed for the 20# line class (20# x 200yds. = 220 in Newell nomenclature) I'd go so far as to say...
I can see it now...."Gloria Allred takes up the Bedbug cause and sues Swedish research scientist."
Outstanding tip! Esp. at the BD booth. No tellin' where those paws have been.
Sorry 'bout being late to the party. :beerbang:
Happy Birthday, Jack!
Do yo thang....
Thanks for the editing, Mark. :D
Beautiful blonde with a rack like that, and you're lookin' for the cock.
I almost wanna hear the story(ies) that prompted your skepticism. LOL
What he said.
Hearing people rave about this reel who are making a buck from selling it is one thing. Seeing someone dissect and grade it is...
Now, THAT's Freudian. :D
Machine some aluminum Penn 500 or 112H sized sideplates to accept a complete Newell 600 bridge & sleeve assembly & bearings, and a 99 width spool...
No fishin' hole is 100%, but Guadalupe in October can be epic. Not a lot of places where you can get a legit shot at a 100# Yellowfin and a 50#...
Damn! Nothing announces a person's ignorance quite like a misspelled tattoo.
If by "upset," you mean happier 'n a fag in a plastic dick factory, then yes.
Ulua. E-glass, S-glass, CEX, or SS. They all kill. I like the CEX.
Better than capable. It's ideal.
Saltist 40 and 50# Izor will put you in...

It's what I do, I've...
What? That's some kind of crazy talk. Don't worry about it, Jack. Go on and do your thing. That kinda stuff wouldn't happen to you.
Too easy. :hali_ruahahaha:
Sorry 'bout the threadjack.
Yeah, I loved that shit. While you guys were wrestling in the stern it was WFO in the bow. Wait, was I wrestling too?
Kinda loved that epic YT...
Sumbitch sleeps SOUND, too.

You trippin', G.
Damn! Last time I looked, this was on page 9.
Shit has commenced.
More is better.
And yes, they are smooth even when dry.
If you want another one, I think Corb will make you a deal on a new 2-piece TNT he has. One of a kind. I'm just sayin'....
And yes, the Baja...
What he said. You'll have a hard time finding a faster action rod in that line class that still has a light tip.
What's that sound? Ah, there it is.........DOUCHE!
FWIW, I have both and have fished both. I like the 525 better.
I have both. Caught a lot of fish on both. Like the Toro better.
I'll be there on Wednesday. Booth bitches who want pastrammiches should PM me.
Accurate used to make 3.25:1 SS gearsets for the 114H, and some are still available if you look for them. That'll pick it up from the stock 2.8:1...

Too purty to use
Mark, hit him up for a current phone number when you're there. A buddy of mine wants to throw him some bidness.

Nothing casts like a Newell. I like the Blackies and the OG P-series, but everyone has different tastes. They're noisy and they...
You guys are killin' me. This thread is hilarious. To those of you who seized the opportunity and scored, congrats. :appl:
Unreal, ain't it?
8'10" Sabre 530 and a Saltist 30 levelwind full of spectra
Check with the guy who was calling you a pussy in the other thread :rofl:
What they said. Izor XXX 2lb. is the good stuff.
Who can argue with that? :food-smiley-014:
But seriously, Fujirose is on it. If you can get a bait to 'em on 60#, do it. Like the man said,...
:hali_ruahahaha: That's gonna cost you a lot of terrorist cookies, and you might as well get Bill his own bottle of chipotle sauce.
What they said.
Nice fush, good report, welcome to Bloodydecks.com. :appl:
:hali_ruahahaha: I can see it now.....
Gunga galunga... gunga, gunga-lagunga
With the exception of the surf assassin and jigstick, that is true for every GUSA blank catalog I've seen.
Good luck on your search.
Getting your art on a waterslide is a great idea. No way Bill came up with it.
That fish sure is pretty. Too bad you couldn't get any big ones.
I'm just kiddin' ya. Congrats on your catch, it's a beauty! :appl:
There's me, Erik, and ......who's the third?
BTW, great tip Alex. :appl:
You're not right, Joker.
My sentiments, EXACTLY. :appl:
WTG, Bill. Good luck on your trip. I hope you kill a big one.
Yes, it does. Those crosswraps really pop against the color of the blank. Kudos to both Kris and Randy.
Jaydog you have yourself a keeper...
That's OK, you're not the friend I was having a bit of fun with. I'll bet he didn't miss the humor.
Maybe someday we can share a rail and...

Call John Baker. He's in Calimesa.
It would look much better on my desk.
That's amazing! I haven't seen digging like that since I hired two tweekers to put in my sprinkler lines :D
Can you do the clam-dango?
It has not happened to me yet.
Anything you want to use is fine. I usually opt for something that lighter than the main line.
Tie the hook directly to the main line and attach a short line for your weight with a surgeon's knot. Forget the "loop" knots.
It is not a problem. Mind you, I upgraded the counter-balanced handle on the 30 for a power handle from the 40, but it still turned easily under...
I am really sorry to hear that, Mike. That sucks out loud.
Sorry to hear it, Jason. Best of luck to you.
Ridiculously good work. Excellent color combos. :appl:
Oh, how true it is! I recently scored another 552 and a 530 and I couldn't be happier about it.

Haven't been there in some time, but dark plastics on the East shore fished s-l-o-w-l-y worked for me. Especially on the points.
What he said.
Hang in there, Erik.
That is EXACTLY why I don't fish for taco critters with bass gear.....anymore. :D
Congrats on a fine catch. That's a beautiful SCI Yellowtail
Yeah. What he said.

Good on ya, buddy. It sounds like you're right where you should be.

Looks clean, Bill. You gotta get that Saltydawg logo in a bigger font, though. It's too subtle.
No way I give up my 90J, btw.
You're killin' me, Chris. We fished Anacapa early today, then rolled to Santa Cruz for good Calico action, but no White love.
Congrats to you...
Alex, I'll be out there on the 19th. If you see a school of WSB, give us a holler on the Sea Jay, wouldja?
Will do. He'll be easy to recognize if you see him. He's the guy with the big tire tracks across his back from where he was thrown under the bus.
Clean water, clean air, beautiful scenery and epic fishing. Sounds OK to me. Frickin' outstanding that you took the boy. Good on ya, man.

Just because we shared a special moment or two at the rod rack, don't go gettin' any ideas.
Li'l G is a Fishkiller, no doubt. He did a fine job on that fish.
It wasn't even a slow pick, but it was sure a good time. Kudos to Captain Tyler and crew, I'll definitely be back to fish that boat.

Capital idea! Top Drawer! That's the kind of thinking that made this country great, and that girl is some kind of genius.
"And that's what feltching is all about." LOL
16. Thank you. We're all refreshed and challenged by your point of view. :appl:
That's just wrong.
BF69, I thought Spike might have been a little hard on you before. Not now.
I saw "I am in despirate help of counseling,,,references...
IMFUO, a bargain isn't worth much if it breaks or can't stop a fish. Just how much will it matter that you saved a few bucks when your bearings...
Oh, HELL YES pink!
Nice ink, too.
Happy Birthday, Mike. I hope it was a good one!
Nice work. That weave really pops.
They look tasty
Very sorry for your loss, Jim. Hang in there and be strong for your family.
Like hitting a home run in his first AB. Nicely done. :appl:
Oh, no you dih'n't! LOL
WTG, Justin. :appl:
I look forward to seeing that ASAP. Chances are, I'll see yours WAY before I see our DVD from Mr. Roecker. LOL
Suh-WEET! Your catch is nice, twice. WSB and Halibut? Damn, you're eatin' good!
His money, his time, his business.
Thanks for the info, minibic
Thanks for the heads-up on some bitin' fish, Nick. I don't give a red piss about the Bonito world record, and I don't give a fuck for the haters,...
Classic non-answer denial
Good one, Bill. :appl:
There's been a woman on board for at least the last two trips, George.
I'm just sayin'.....
900H or 90J. Flip a coin, you can't lose. :D
Yeah, me too! LOL
Nice hearing about a good deal, Chris. :appl:
Yeah, that would suck. Don't ever do that.
Congrats, Jesus. I hope you get many more bass on your new setup.
Danny, we need to talk. Carwash, friday morning?
No stripper pole?
Does roadkill count?
Dibs on the Kangalion!
Sorry to interrupt the mindless hating and name-calling, please continue.
Hell no! Just too much sexy for a 3X, that's all. Besides, a little loose is good for those double dessert nights.
Girls, yourself. Put me down for a 4X, sir.
And, thank you. :appl:
If he was so hot, he'd have his own dipping sauce. :D
J/K Dig the show, have for years.
Congrats on the free trip. Have a ball.
Happy Birthday, ya fish-killin' bastard.
I mean that in the best possible way.
Mmmmm. That's good bass!
Thanks Mikey and Steve for posting the info.
It's a lot of legalese to sift through on a Sunday night, and at the end of it, based on the merits...

Back off the poor weirdos who got stuck doin' kiddie shows. They were cheap babysitters for a...
No no no no no. That's not right. You don't fuck with a fella's ice cream. You're gonna smoke a turd in hell for that one, Spike.
A late Sept. 7 day may put you at Cedros or Guadalupe where you may encounter some of the hardest pulling Yellows in our part of the world. If...

You draw a hell of a picture with your words, sir.
And then you go and post that
I haven't heard such language since I was a scoutmaster.
Why, when I look at that terrible hole in Steve's leg, do I think of the Octomom?
Good luck at the doc's, buddy. I'll see you at the health...
I fish one on a GUSA 85XF, spooled with spectra and short flouro topshots. Great combination. Casts long, fast action, plenty of backbone for...
Congrats on a great report on a great trip, Brandon. Excellent photos, too.
Thanks for the South Park link. It's one of the funnier versions of that joke.
Thanks for your insights, Erik. That was a good read. :appl:
You are carryin' the message, brother. Bring it on home.
I'm with you so far....
It probably doesn't make any difference to someone who can cast a jig a mile, but you asked...

I've only fished with him once. The yellows wouldn't eat iron for shit, and the bait rolled. Erik was cool, though. Congrats and nice writeup!
Excellent post. Thanks for a very good read and congratulations on being determined enough to stick it out and give yourself a chance at that...
2.92 Damn thing is fun
You and I are simpatico, Senor.
Have a good one, Jack!
I bet you do, peg boy. :D
Fuck that shit, Steve! Get better and get better soon.
Yeah, but I believe he was talking about George
Damn, Bill. If you keep messin' around with that you're gonna be damned good at it.
Nice lookin' yeller. :appl:
Transparent Head - That's a great name for a band
Man who eat crackers in bed have crummy sleep
$118 and a baby's arm holding an apple
That part I remember.
Ray, you really should talk to Buff. You say an SX is missing, he says you're complaining about a JX 6/3 that's missing. It sounds like what's...
There's two sides to every story, Ray. I just happen to know a little about Buff's side of this story, and if you could have produced a receipt...
Buy saltigas up to 50#, buy Accurates for 50# and up.
What he said.
Don't worry, you'll do fine. What's the worst that could happen? :D
Way cool. :appl:
That is almost a good idea
Check it out....
You're sick with it, Bill.
A pre-FHS gig at Pierpoint landing? Great idea, TB. See you there.
OH, HELL YES!.....and a diet coke. :D
Lokey, that is just wrong. Very, very wrong. Well played, sir.
Alan, that's just funny. Funny "Ha-Ha" and then just funny that you see Lokey's...
Yes and no
Nice recovery. The opening lines to "Cheat" might be appropriate for some of the posters in this thread, too. LOL
What he said. Way to go get 'em. :appl:
Supervisor, my ass! He's the drunk-ass cook.
That place looks like some solid downhome, Ron. I'm bettin' you had a pleasant flight home.
What he said. Move the spool away from the pinion gear.
Definitely a lever drag, Dayle. Looks like the drag is very precise, as it has many settings and adjustments, at least the one I was scoping out...
Somebody PM me a total of booth bitch sammiches before the show, doin' math gives me gas.
3.99 with one eye closed. :D
It's all fun and games until someone gets lit on fire in their sleep
No pastrami for you
That kind of stuff usually isn't very funny to me, but that one sure as hell is.
Dude is mach 1.5 into the kitchen every time....classic.
What kind of half-baked, illiterate, dog-shit eating motherfucker would do that?
I got you covered on Wednesday, cupcake.
You readin' my playbook?
Yes, she is. She has her family tree to thank for her high tolerance to alcohol, and in this instance, her life.
"WOW!" is right. .46 is...
That was wacky. :slap:
On the nose, Tommy. :appl: That's how I feel about it, too. See you there.
So, there's a pre-show Q out back?????
Ha! Good one.
Day 1 of FHS in Long Beach.
WTG, Reider! That's a fine stringer, especially for your first time on that water.
Links no workee, Bigfish.
Ditto. Except for the "didn't run right out and get a new setup" part. I bought smarter, though. :hali_parkutuli:
Happy Belated B-Day, Jaydog!!!! I hope it was a good one!
Apparently, he does.
Spot on, Jaydog. :appl:
Make sure the zipper's in the back.
Enjoy the attention you're getting with your BS post,...
I hope you're better real soon, Maggie. You are in my prayers.
Fuck yeah, I want one of those in 3X!
Looks slick. Nice touch with the green. :appl:
Don't rush into an impulse buy, Dayle. If you buy another one, you'll have to stop badmouthing 'em or you'll look like an idiot. LOL
Nice goin', Shocktower. :appl:
That B of a link don't work for your MF pictures! Should I try the Bear Claw of death?
Kudos, Bukowski. Nicely done.
That's a proper Flattie. Nice goin', Kmounts! Congrats on bustin' fiddy. :appl:
That's pretty bold talk for an 82 year-old, Mikey. If you've got the balls to back it up, you're sure to be showing 'em off. :slap:
The Head of Alfredo Garcia
Nice goin' Alan. You drastically increased your client's chances of getting his hooked fish to the gaff. :appl:
Duly noted. LOL
Mine is setup with NIC Titan guides and a buttcord handle. It's a killer stick for throwing live bait and swimbaits on 25#. Excellent for...
:urno1: You sir, are in the running for the 2009 " I Safely posted on the internet what would get my ass kicked in person" award. Well done. LOL...
Happy belated birthday, buddy! Hope it was a good one.
LOLLOLLOL That's what I'm talkin' 'bout!
Just kiddin' ya, Steve. It was kinda funny.
Lookin' good, Ray. Maybe you should get married more often. LOL
Happy Birthday, Lokey!
Many happy returns.
And then, he said THAT.
That's about some typical fuckin' domestic terrorist bullshit tactical rhetoric, ain't it? Tryin' to keep the natives...
Awesome, Hamilton! Totally awesome!
I've never seen a better fish from an IE regional park. You captured a fine specimen there, Andy. :appl:
I recognize your style, G.
Not sure if it fits the 203, but the Calcutta 400 live bait handle fits the 253. If you can find one, it might be worth your time to try it....
Siiiick! I'll have to stick to imagining, 'cause I doubt that I'll get it out of your hands for a test run. But that's OK, I got a little...
You can't nose hook 'em, you have to bridle 'em. Luckily, they're a great source of catgut.
X3. Serious voodoo stick, for sure.
Maybe I should have paid closer attention when reading, but you fucked a yellowtail? I mean...sure, big yellows are sexy and all, but damn!
Looks like you have a crew of volunteers, Mikey. Tell me that doesn't put your mind at ease. LOL
I'm just sayin'.....
Ps. Buy it.
Give 'em Hell, David.
Nice catch! Both times.
Backed up the chili-dog with fistin' her glory hole. Niiice. :appl:
That explains a lot.
Don't forget Mikey; if your feet go numb, put on some Allman Brothers. :D
If your feet go numb, you must be smokin' that shit from Zimbabwe...
Preheated Green Stanley. Used it for years, works every time.
I'm not even gonna try to find the link, but Bill's post about beatin' up the tweekers in front of his house in the middle of the night was HILARIOUS!
He didn't tell you it was in the back of the van and you had to find it, did he?
Mark, that's the funniest thing you've written....that I've read. :appl:
I'm just sayin'....
You are sick with the cord wrapping, Ken. That handle is suh-WEET!
Ken, unless your info. is very recent, I doubt that the link will help.
I asked the good folks down at BC a few months back about getting the...
Forget the rug, I finally know where to go to get WSB. :D
