I bought a 7' predator and likeed it so much I bought 2 more. My favorite stick. Hooked a 10+ foot mako and it handled it like a champ.
Thanks for the heads up. The main reason I went with the SEA's was that I thought they had a less progressive drag setting?
One of the things I...
Yes but what length is the 400lb leader?
The reason I ask is I would thing you would want the 400lb leader to be the approximate length of the...

Are you sure?
I'm reading it as.
Zone D, September 9th & 10th closed from 7:00am to Midnight.
I know I've heard alot of you guys saying to use 400lb leader on the Yummee's.
How long of a leader are you using?

The amount of detail in this one is amazing Jim!
Thinking those aluminum trim rings would go really well with a gun themed build... ;)
That's what I've been hearing Aren.

Is there a link on this build?

I pulled on them at Lakeside Bait and Tackle today.
If they don't have what you want to pull on when you get here try Squid-Co.
Can't agree more about the Avets. I like em and actually own 12 of them. But my reels get used hard and take alot of spray on my boat.

Anyone know the physical size difference...
Yes. Looking for a trolling reel but will be used for a kite reel as well.
At this point I've pretty much decided to go with the Makaira 50IIsea...
Nice to finally see some volume!

I personally like the palomar knot for leader to hook and the uni to uni for leader to main.
Don't know if you noticed, but in one of those pictures there's a grizzly bear standing behind you!
Good luck. I'm out. Gotta get up in a few hrs to go fly that Yummee you rigged today.
Just called it 3 times in a row.
I feel like a tweaker that just ran out and my dealer won't pick up the phone. LOL

So you were trolling them?
Wing's out model?
I just ordered two from Melton.

Looks like the leader is coming out the nose of the lure.
Is that how you had it...
Looks like some are having luck with trolling the Yummee flying fish.
Not on a kite but trolled.
Approximate speed... 5-7knts?
You basically just described exactly how the two Wahoo hit for us last year. Absolute bullet freight train initiall run.

I respect your opinion, but.
What I find misleading is grouping a private boater with commercial boats that get paid to fish. A charter boat...
I'm assuming the numbers you are referring to includes the commercial cattle boats/long-range Fleet not just private boats?
That's where things...
Congrats on getting her in the boat solo.
Damn it Bill, you are right. I'm not thinking straight this morning.
I just haven't had my wake and bake session yet this morning....
This is by far the most logical statement in this thread. Thank you for saying exactly what most of us are thinking.
Any time you introduce...

100 pound string to boot.

The blue fin blues.
Got it bad!
I'd be making a visit back the shop that did the repairs.
They guesstimated what needed to be repaired on your dime.
WTF! Please tell me you are joking?
They have had spotter planes up for weeks now.
Just hope they are almost done!
Should have tied off to his pulpit and kindly moved his boat about three hundred yards.
You're a nicer guy than I!
Same exact experience in that zone two weeks ago on a Saturday.
It was like watching a parking spot open up at the mall during Christmas.

I can hardly contain my excitement.
Don't worry Apogee.

WAY to go little Mike!
If you gave some of the guys here $50,000 in $100.00 bills in a paper bag, they would bitch about the weight!!!
Congrats on the BFT.
Perhaps they could hang some F300's in the interim to get you on the water until the G2's are ready to go....
Just saying :D

My thoughts are if your going to offer me less than my asking price it better be in person and with cash in hand or your not going to like my reply.

The rod is a graphite spinning jigging ProChallenger brand new.

Thanks for the info Kevin.
That's good news!
Did you go through a state agency or was it through a private company?
We can get them expedited through the local San Diego Passport Agency for approximately $60 additional above and beyond the passport fee.
That's what we were doing when they 1st started enforcing the passport requirement.
I won't risk it at this point.
Does SD ever have Squid?

Damn Jim! Sorry to hear about the hit.
I will keep an eye out for the too good to be true reel deal's.
Hope the fuckers get caught.

Guy is a wealth of information and has great pricing to boot.
YFT? Really? Pics?
I don't know how I missed your build but the boat look's awesome!!
Thank you for the late night laugh!
That last picture looks like a stock pilot house. Great job integrating the pilot house into the hull, perfect!

Douchebag response to somebody that was trying to help you out. :rolleyes:
That's how many inches that guy's nut's are going to hang by the time those midget's are done stomping on em. LOL
Had Sea tow. Two times I called for help. Both times no response.
1st time was 25miles out, water in fuel, took 6hrs to make it back in.
Wow! That's some serious pressure/bend on that stick!

If you are serious about the addition, have a set of plans drawn up and get bid's from licensed, bonded and insured contractors in your area.
Thanks for the info!
I don't think MoMo need's a Bigdaddy. :gay:
If I had a hard top, I'd be all over that.
I was just trying to have more perspective. :-)
Cut me some slack man. I'm trying real hard here! LOL
That's what I just wrote.
Your perspective in your exact words.
As arrogant and ignorant as your perspective sounds to me, I still have enough...
Get ready Kevin.
MoMo is about to tell you that because you are a 2nd or 3rd generation American white male "that probably has family members...

Can't comment on the trout, but I went down to see Carl today at DL and the license was $52 & change with the SW enhancement stamp. So it looks...
It look's like that was back in 2013?
Did you guys ever manage to put one on the deck out here, deep drop style?
I blame the companies.
Pick any subject or topic and you will always have someone that disagrees.
The corporations need to quit rolling over to...
What type of coolers are those?
They look like fiberglass?
If you can find one that has a infrared camera, that would be the ticket.
Pretty sure I have read about surveyors in Florida using them.
You just need a low life friend that has other low life friends...
Pretty sure I can get this smoged for you Dave. :D
I gotta say.
Some one walks up to me in that drab.
Points a gun in my face and starts yelling.
Then laughs and tells me it's just a joke.
Size and type of drain "K-sink, main?" Screw the liner unless absolutely necessary. Reroute before you line.

Bummer, if the odds were 2 to 1 in favor of Aldo I was going to take a chance and put a hundo on McGregor.
What's the Vegas odds on this fight?
Waaay :hali_parkutuli: :rolleyes:
Good thing she didn't have a badge to go with that gun. She would have shot them 16 times...
FE trailers in Santee.
Nice size on that YFT!
If McGregor can keep Aldo from chopping him up with that kick, McGregor will win.
If not, It's going to be a long night for McGregor.
I really hope our country as a whole wakes up and realizes that disarming law abiding citizen's is not the way to go.
More people should be...
Tabman on THT is a rep.
He has helped me before.
Awesome to deal with.
I wasn't saying my windlass was good, as in better than anyone else's windlass.

What a little trooper!
Can't help but smile after watching her down that heart.
I think that's one of the only times I've seen you get the skunk Cory.
You guy's are always killing it!
I had to go eat lunch after hearing...
You got that right max.
Almost 100 hours in the last 6 weeks.
We've been hitting it hard!
Oh, he fed the birds Dave.
When we stopped to clean the tuna we soaked a few more baits and he emptied the bait tank.
He was having a blast...

It was snotty as hell out there.
The water only greased over for about an hour or so.

If you are purchasing a windlass based on look's, your a dumb ass...
Please enlighten us all on what a "good looking windlass is" o_O
Thanks Gary, I'll give it a try.
We did very well in the beginning of the season running a spread of 30' deep dive rapala's at approximately 9-10mph
After having a few close...
I went with a GOOD windlass.

It sold but the poor bastard is still waiting for the title... :D
Not very smart going out in yesterday's sea's in a 20' boat. o_O

Nice grade of fish!

Is the color from back light?
Thanks for the info Bub.
Any more details? Date of catch?
If this Is recent? That's really good news!
I hope your right. I've been waiting all season for a shot at some bigger grade tuna in our local waters! Bring it!
Both of our hoo were cought leaving the boat at the same speed for 7-10 seconds after strike "10-12mph" We then brought the boat down to 3-5mph...

Hey Max, you wana bet another $100.00 on them Bears? :D

The earth has gone from a lush tropical green landscape just bursting with life "dinosaur age" to a god damn frozen popsicle "ice age" long before...
Sound's like a great day of catching!
LOL! Your dog has that, if you don't get me off of this thing I'm gonna puke look. LOL
Sorry for your loss Mike.
Remembering the good times helps.
A tall glass of JD and a cigar doesn't hurt either.
Sound's like he likes the sauce.
I would have pulled 4or 5 beers out of the cooler, opened one and started pouring it out over the side.
Jiggers now $90.00
That's $50.00 less than I paid and they are brand new.
I'm happy with my Fusion. Lots of adjustability.
Clarion make's some very nice stuff as well.
Glad to see you gave it another shot Mike.
Thanks for the report.
Good luck Max!
Fish of a life time for So Cal and doing it with the family just make's it that much more special.

Prayers sent for the little guy.
Perps cuffed and stuffed sitting on the dock.
That's the best money shot I've seen in a while.
Kudos to the guy that called that in!!!
Nice sled and I'm in love with that tackle center!
Yup. I think the crew and I would have been dryer if we had jumped in the frigging ocean! LOL
If some one has the time to part out they could easily double or triple there money.
I want this shit out of my garage!
Nice going! On the heavy gear to boot.
Hope them suckers come back thru San Diego.
Nice fish! Thanks for the report.
How are you cutting thru the spine so clean? Hack saw?
What, you plan on sleeping in? :D
That just means I'm going to have to get redemption for you... Stand by. ;)
Thank you for the input guys.
Going to try and pull the trigger on something today.
Picked up some specialized high speed "up to 20knts" two pound Wahoo lures to try something different this weekend. Report to follow.
Fuck! I hope they catch that piece of shit!
Wow! ^^^ For the coin I'm going to have to give these guy's a serious look.
Would really like to try them on 1st but for a $400.00+ savings I...
Two weeks ago going out of Mission bay at night the water was calm enough to see the mind field of lobster buoys with out a spot light.
Yeah, I find it strange that MJ only offers like 4 pair's of glasses in the blue glass when the make around 150 different styles. Weird. o_O
Thank you for the input guys.

Man, what is up with the 4th day being the ticket?
We had more than 300 miles over a three day period and on day four, BAM!
I really like those Jim.
Amazing thread work!
Putting a hoo on the deck solo ain't easy.
Shit, it's a challenge with three people.
Way to go! Congrats.
I dig your narration. Feel like I'm watching a fishing show.
Thanks for posting up the video. Good job and congrats on another hoo!
Thank you so much for putting this thing on.
For someone to take the time to do this,
on short notice and with no personal gain at stake....
Had the best day I've ever had fishing in SoCal today... :D
Why do I have a feeling you are not far off in your prediction...
Thank you Mikey!
Going to let the graphite jigging rods go for $100.00 a pop. Wife is threatening to buy more shoes because I have too much fishing gear. :D...
If anyone has a rod holder davit for pulling hoop nets I would be willing to trade one of the graphite jigging rods for the davit.
Jigging rods are 6'
TN40 Sold to Mike pending payment.
Looking to buy a couple 150 Z Wing planer boards.
Located in San Diego.

By the 5 & 8 merge
I will have an answer for you tomorrow on whether or not I can get the boat serviced prior to Saturday.
I'll let you know Mike.
Multiple people asking for more pictures of the TN40.
I will post up more tonight.
Would rather do a face to face deal and not ship.
If I can manage to get the 1st service done on the new Yamaha, I can probably pull off the 17th. You in David?
If I can get this guy on my boat ^^^^ and the turny is next Sunday the 25th, I'm in!
Excellent condition Shimano TN40 on a OTG-670c 7' 20-50lb graphite composite rod.

Cool thread. Looking forward to hearing some info.
Did he not communicate with you as he was doing the work and get your approval to do the necessary repairs?
