What's actual name of the fish you guys are calling a "blue bass?" Nothing coming up on Google.
I hoop on my kayak with 3-4 nets.
I find that 45 min+ soak sessions are a waste of time, I think 30 mins is about right.
I usually spread my...

Looks great, nice job
This is the way I tie it, it's essentially a Uni Knot along the shank of the hook.
What was the rush to get your ad posted "less than 5 minutes" earlier without a price?
I for one find it really annoying when people post things...
Weak....only 2 species :p:
Well done :appl:
Nice day with the kids.
We were there on Thursday as well but couldn't get any YT to go.
Did catch tons of Bass, Baracuda, and a 28" Halibut though.
We were there on Thursday in what I think was the same spot but didn't get anything except Bass and Baracuda.
Well done :appl:
Actually, instead of sending a PM.....it might be useful for others that read this for you to post here with what you bought and what you did.
I'd love some help with this as well, sending you a PM
There is a countdown clock on their site for the 5% cashback, it's at 12 hours, 30 minutes so looks like it's actually valid till 1am tomorrow...
I've been waiting for a Ebay coupon to buy a few things and got a notification that Topcashback has 5% cashback for Ebay today.
That looks phenomenal! :drool:
Do you come NW towards the LA area for anything?
Damn, I would not hold that Mako that close.
So at that price point, this is replacing the Metaloid?
Having someone like that on the boat is worse than the lack of fish.
At least you gave it a shot.
Is the price difference ($21.99 vs $14.99 for 300yds of 65lb) worth it for Super 8 Slick V2 vs regular Power Pro?
Impressive....well done :appl:
I'll take it if KneppNasty decides not to get it.
You need to put prices on Classified ads
I'm not sure if you're serious but this is a situation where percentage is a lot less important than the actual number.
Solid fish, well done :appl:
Bump for Tony, he's a good guy to fish with.
Still going out Sunday as well or Saturday instead now?
Awesome, heading out there tomorrow so hopefully fishing continues to be good.
Best bet is probably to put your reel up on the Classifieds and see if there is someone out there that is interested in a trade.
Not to be mean but it's not a question that needs to be asked at all.
Why would any manufacturer or retailer exchange a reel that's been spooled...
Nice, what area did you hit?
Nice fish :appl:
Bad batches of braided line definitely happen.
As many people said, it's always best to test it.
+1 I was thinking about building one as well so some ideas would be great
Well done :cheers:

It's probably because it's more a violation of the letter of the law versus the spirit of the law.

That's what I figured.
Agreed, I would definitely appreciate a deals section like on CalGuns.
I've been able to score some good stuff.

After getting in on the killer deal on the Penn Fathom reels from yesterday, I started cruising Amazon for some rods to pair them with.
Good to know, thanks
Good advice for most things in life but sometimes that's not an option.
Thanks for the report, always nice to get out on the water.
I'm really curious what the other side of this story is.
I'm considering some PCH rods as well.
So, these rods fish best at the lower end of their line rating?
Thanks for the report
It would be really useful if people would leave their original posts alone and only edit it to add "SOLD".
It helps both buyers and sellers see...
Are you looking to hop on someone's boat or are you looking for crew for yours?
Nice of you to give that gear away :hali_olutta:
If anyone is looking for an extra crew member, please PM me.
I've been on plenty of BD Member's boats and know how to be part of a team.
+1 You're better off cutting and pasting your CL ad here
Putting a price is probably going to get you a lot more responses.
Thanks, I forgot as well
I wish I would have seen this earlier, hopefully you got someone to join you.
Good luck out there.
Thanks for the heads up, well done.
The weather cooperated the entire day plus the quantity and quality of fish was impressive

It was awesome day on the water, thanks for putting us on the fish Rusty!
I'll upload some pictures when I get home.
Sent you a PM Russell.
I'm going to be visiting my buddy in the area for the next couple of days and would love to join you if you're going out.
Killer! Thanks for the report
I'm in Ventura, I'll take it.
That seems like a long way to come just for a weekend but should be a cool trip.
If you need another person to join you on your boat, I'm...
Just started seeing a couple of your videos, some nice tips.
I'm going to be visiting my friend who lives in Fairhope, AL in a few weeks so...
Where's the sweet spot on this line weight wise?
It's been a couple of weeks since you posted so if you do decide to drop the price eventually, I would be interested.
If not good luck with the...
What's the action on this rod?
Probably explains why he's only used it 2 times in several years.
These kinda look like lobster but probably don't taste as good :p
Looks like you have a pretty strong consensus going but I'll throw my 2 cents in as well.....polarized is a no brainer if you're going to be doing...
Well done, sounds like a pretty great day to me, particularly with limits of lobster.
Haven't gone hooping this year yet so hoping to making it...
Good luck out there today guys!
Wish you had posted earlier since I already made plans.
Fishing during the day and then hooping for lobster at night would have been great!
Looks like a lot of fun!
I wouldn't mind catching those at all when it's non-stop action, it's tons of fun!
Sent you a PM Jason
Thank you for the rod/reel combos and meeting me halfway.
I would love the recipe for those poke nachos.
I've had them at the Yard House and they are great.
What's the general feel and action on this blank?
Is the tip on the softer side?

That's a crappy title; while I think this is a good deal, $600 is nowhere near free.
Darn, I'm off tomorrow but have to work Friday.
I'm definitely down if you decide to go Thursday instead.
FTF = face to face
Wow, that's a beast!
That's phenomenal, I hope I'll still be fishing when I'm 88!
Here's a quick 2-minute on why you should release big fish.
Once again, I have no problem with anyone that keeps a legal fish.
I sent you a PM with my number Stephen.
Did you end up going out on Wednesday?
I think Calicos (and a lot of other fish) should have slot limits.
We need the ones with the "big fish" genes to keep reproducing.
I'm working Friday but would love to go if your heading out again Monday or Tuesday next week.
Happy to split costs and assist with cleaning up...
Why not just post the pictures here?
Chucking your guts suck but so does leaving a wide open bite....you're good friend.
I personally release them but I have no problem with people keeping them if they are legal.
Me too, I'm free Monday and Tuesday next week if you decide to go out either day.
Happy to split costs and assist with cleaning up the boat/gear...
Jeez, looks like everybody is giving you days that you didn't ask for, sorry for starting that trend :P
Did you find someone to go with you...
Well done, solid fish!
Wish I could go but Thursday is my day off this week.....good luck
2 speed or single speed?
There's a link.
Basically if you stick the knife in and cut all the way around, you'll get more meat than if you just twist the tail...
That's awesome, nice report!
Love catching Dorado, nice work
You might want to put WTB in your subject
Epic, awesome report!
I've caught lots of Red Rock Crab off the Ventura Pier.
It's a lot of work and there's not much meat so I stopped doing it.
My wife cooks them in...
What about this Thursday? I have the day off and looking to go out.
+1 this is a pretty good deal if the kayak is in good shape.
I've had one for a long time and it's a great fishing kayak.
Super stable, plenty of...
Wow, tons of great ideas on this thread. Not the OP but thanks guys.
Not sure where you are located but here's a free one that works:
A price would help you get some interest
Awesome read, thank you for sharing
I'd like to join next time you head out if you have free space. I'm fairly experienced and would be happy to share costs, clean the boat, etc....
My very first Tuna :D
As JeffB said, pretty much everything that works during the day works at night.
I think what is more important is what kind of feeding routine...
That doesn't look like a seal to me, more like a small dolphin.
Looks great! What about a combo gauge with a crab measurement on the other side?
I tried searching for this on Ebay and wasn't able to find it. Would you mind posting a link or naming the seller?
Where are you located? Any line on the Squall?
That is awesome

Relax, it's no big deal. The CCW interview is basically reviewing everything you wrote on your application. Also, if the background check comes...
Amazing, what a accomplishment from a 21' skiff!
The model #, a price, and some pictures would probably help you a lot.
Solid Calico!! Nice job
That was fast. If you don't mind, how much did you sell it for?
Not sure if you already found someone but sent you a PM.
I would imagine that anything you did safely in your kayak (accounting for swell, wind, conditions, etc.) would be just fine in your skiff

I'll give them a call tomorrow, thanks.
When did you get it? Is that the current price?
It's hard to get the full story from that letter. I doubt most business owners would simply walk away from a profitable business after being...
Yea, it wasn't even something I was considering. I'll see if anyone around has 1 in stock so I can take a look at it in person.
Seem like a decent option in the $60 range, have you used a Ugly Stik Tiger so you can give a comparison?
Thank you for the suggestion but $150+ is more than I want to spend for a kayak rod that is going to get beat up
Thanks for the advice, I'm definitely leaning toward the Penn Carnage
Great job on the light tackle
Thanks for the input, glad to hear from someone that owns all 3. What a killer deal at $40! What exactly do you think is better on the Carnage...
They seem to be in that $120-140 range unless I'm not seeing them on sale somewhere. Do you think they are better than the Penn Bluewater Carnage...
Very cool video
I'm looking for a second 30-40lb setup for my kayak and general party boat use. I'll be doing mostly live baiting with it and maybe yo-yo jigging...
Gonna try this......thank you
Killer! Nice of you to share the bite
Around how much are you looking to get for it?
Wow, it seriously looks alive
You should put "WTB" or "WTT" in the title of your post, otherwise most people are going to think you are selling a 870 Sabre, not looking for one.
My condolences, so sorry for your loss
That was amazing! How long was the fight?
Would you consider a trade for a Seagate 40 (SGT40H) plus cash? It is in like new condition, would just prefer the 35 size.
Why does this not work on straight shank hooks?
Thanks for the good deal Jesse. The reel was in great shape.
Are you selling a Seagate or a Saltist? A Seagate has a MSRP of $150 and can obviously be found for cheaper if you wait for a sale
When do Daiwa Sealines go for that cheap at Turner's? The cheapest I have seen them so far was $89 from Turner's this March but you had to buy it...
Is it $200 for the rod/reel combo or just the reel?
Sounds like from his post that this was from 10 fish.
Pretty cool to see that. Had no idea that red rock crabs were part of their diet
Saw a post on Craigslist about this swapmeet and tried googling "Channel Islands Swapmeet" and couldn't find any more info.

That looks delicious :drool:
I'm guessing it's probably because Power Pro is owned by Shimano
Price drop to $85
Wow, that place looks phenomenal
OP, next time put "WTB" in the title
You mention in the video the hook eye should be at a angle, what happens if the eye is straight on the hook?
Open to trade for a smaller sized reel, something like a Daiwa Sealine 20 or 30, Avet SX, etc.
We can add money on my end or yours to make the...
Where are you located?
Why not give them a call?
Is there a reason you are looking for a floating bait? Mealworms under a small bobber work great
Where are they located? 805 is my neck of the woods in Ventura/Santa Barbara County
+1 It's pretty much the only place to sell anything that has a tough time selling locally
Ebay really sucks for the casual seller now. The fees have grown ridiculous and a lot of the power is in the hands of the buyer who can make...
+1 This is probably it, it would be really hard to tell what is a false alarm
Which model Okuma rod is that?
Why not upload the pics?
Wow, that's epic!
Wow, what a epic trip
Nice catch and video
Damn, that was insane
Wow, well done
What a fatty, nice job!
Price and location?
This was in a storage locker I bought with a buddy. Looks to be brand new and never used.
These older, made in the U.S. Penn reels are quality...
Definitely pretty simple. Have you done any testing on the strength?
As others have mentioned, it depends a lot on how much you want to spend. Whatever safe you get, make sure to BOLT IT DOWN
Definitely will be a bummer if that is true, me and my buddy were just talking about planning a trip there.
