I worked on the Apollo back in the 80s when Jeff Jones owned the boat. If you ask me it is hands down and always has been one of the best boats in...
I couldn't even break a smile at this less than humorous thread.
Awfully green fish too have that tail so close to your ballsack in that last pic of the fatty BFT! That might have stung a bit. :doh:
When your fishing around the kelp like that and you hook into a yellow or any big fish, you will increase your catch ratio dramatically by using...
He had one next to him though... Haha
At least he is not a DICK!
LIAR..LIAR...PANTS ON FIRE!!
Great rod. Blows the Teramar away...I think these rods were retailing for close to $200 or more. The eyes are bad...
Isn't that a narrow spool?
A Sportboat AKA. The Tribute, is a class act. How often do you hear them helping PBers.....Kudos to The Tribute! Fishy boat and captain and now...
How much for the Talica?
The fish are were saying thank you Everingham Bros. until they ate one with a hook!
Thank Mother Nature for these offshore winds and 80 degree temps, sure helps!
Starting to wonder if this guy wants to sell any of his reels....no responses? Maybe he PMd? Something smells fishy!
Your getting the hang of how to put up a report, not sure why you didn't post before this though...then I saw you don't post much. My bad. Very...
Your really asking for it with a post like that.
Thats what you call stickin with it!! Great job!! You definetly earned it and stuck it out even when reports have been scarce as of late!! Did...
Interested live in El Cajon, are you going to lower and put up pics? I will PM also.
Thanks for the report of your day on the water good or not so much, still like seeing ALL reports. Thanks for taking the time telling a not so...
Where was it purchased?
Hope we get a confirmed report from a reliable source. Always 2 sides to a story. Thrown in jail just for fishing without proper paperwork is...
Hate to think of what his kid had to endure. I can only imagine. Feel bad he has such a brainless father.
Pics? How big were the YF?
Even this time of year we should be able to get away from this shit, guess not.
That one should definetly qualify for a sponsorpship!! ;) Nicely Done!

Epic....just Epic. Would have loved to see more of the slayage! Left me on the edge of my chair wanting more. The boat definitly deserves its...
How light did you need to go? Was it because the fish were finicky? Or needed for throwing the chovies? Should still be able to get em out...

I just might be! Thank you for the consideration. Feel free to call me and we can discuss how we might be able to put a game plan together....
Did you post this when it was NEW News?
Didn't know they made the 400D for people with little fingers...you know what they say. :D
No I wasn't, because a SX raptor would be ok because of the higher drag capability....just adding my two cents to the post. Dont know why you...
An SX is at MOST a 30lb reel. Drags wont allow for more, and at 30 you will be maxed out on drag. If you plan on fishing 20-30 at most like you...
You didnt show handle. But I see one next to it, which is black. Im sure it is for another reel or did you upgrade or change handle?
I have my PSW700xh paired with the Talica 12ii, it flat out...kicked the shit out of a few 40-60lb class BFT for me earlier this year! My buddy...
Might want to put a few pics up. GLWS
You Guys are ALL Class Acts...IMO.
I think its awesome seeing how quickly generous BD'ers are trying to help out by offering to the less...
Should sell quick! GLWS
Wrong Forum!! Try Chit Chat......I am now a firm believer in Phenix Rods, not all I use but I think they kick ass!!!
Winner..Winner....Dodo Dinner! ...Great Fish and Report!
I guess advertisers dont give out that Top Secret Info. Im guessing somewhere close to Mexico, stopped on the troll and the rest is in the Pics....
I think no pics of the tuna a some pics of a couple very nice DoDo's says it all!! LOL
You should take the 809 off the title for your post if its sold. I bet half the people that would look at this thread are looking at the 809,...
Fricken Scissors I say! One of the best photos in a while.
Phenix PSW-809XHJ.....casts 160g FF with a 16a further than any jig rod I have ...IMO. Went to the 20a because the 16 barely held enough 40lb to...
Where do you have your reels serviced?
Missed cleaning a spot on the bail arm....:D Beautiful ....great old school reel!

Why are you giving it a 8/10 mechanically? The 7.5 condition is very obvious....8/10 mechanically scares me too think about :eek:! What is wrong...
Great Job Pops! Kids comments are classic! What a show...sorry about Charlie!
Found it thanks, cant believe I didnt find that out sooner!
Where did you find the 40-50lb. spools of Vanish? Used it since its inception...IMO...great line for the $$. Never! Had a problem with...
Who did the rewrap?
Whats up with the oversized guides on the 800H?....for the knots to come through easier is all I can think. Maybe I am just seeing them wrong in...
Not everyone has time to to post over 3,000 times.....be cool. He was asking a good question, politely....geeze.
WOW!...... Nice fish, not so nice fuel bill. We shouldn't have to go 80 miles this year...whats going on? I haven't had close to a banner year....
I have done the long shot of floro for all the above reasons. But have also heard and believe through seeing. ANY tiny nick in the flouro stands...
Love doing them with light gear....talk about maxing out the drags!!
SOLD!! HAPPY, HAPPY, HAPPY!! Glad all went well.
Now thats the way IMO!!!! GLWS
I sure hope your original buyer that they are pending to buys them. Because of your attitude, lack of answering basic questions I would be...
EXPLAINS IT BEST!!
Why post if pending? Worried the guy you are giving first dibs to instead of BD'ers might back out? Tease!

$300 for a like new Trini 16 a on Craigslist....:rofl:! Why would anyone sell one so cheap when they retail for almost $500? I wouldnt touch one...
What makes you think "there will be a glut of barely used Trinidads at the end of the tuna season"? Do you think people are going to sell because...
Brand New? Never Used? If so good price but it might help to show pics anyways..it can help make or break. GLWS
SOLD....to one smart happy angler....thx
Right On....Great slay session. Close and Quick!
San Diego not local enough?
Trinidad 16a see ad and pics on this forum. $400.. only a month old.
Because thats a great price for a Brand New 16a with spectra! You also didn't state like on the others, that it was new. GLWS
Is the 16a Brand New as well?
Still up waiting for the right buyer...killer price for a reel that could be sold as new. Thanks for realizing a good deal as well as the bump.
pics of the 16a?
If I think about it I have only had the problems personally on the 50lb. Maybe other line classes (ie.65lb.) are more accurate. Because my Talica...
Interesting information on the amount of tolerance they accept....+/- 10%
Awesome Job, great report....Just wondering why you would use a 25lb leader with 20lb mainline?
Maybe they are off on thier 50lb capacities then. I have noticed my discrepencies with 50lb. PP, on Avets and Shimanos. 65 PP might be more...
What Bluefin...all I saw were yellows...the big'ns too! They were talking about limits of Yellowfin....geeez! Not overall limits from what I was...
You can doubt all you want. I may have put 65 on my talica 12....but I guarantee you my 16a wound tight as a drum, I would be surprized if it...
Am I the only one that has noticed that Shimano, Avet and I am sure other reels, have been misrepresented on websites that sell them, when it...
Dropped to $400!! Show me one this clean/new going cheaper on BD.
What size are the boots?
Pm replied. Pics up!!
Dragon Scale....Bitchin name too!!
Bitchen work...like the diamond pattern.
I have a basically new 16a that is only one month old...have receipt to prove it. $420 with 300 yds of 50lb PP. Casted maybe 10 times. I have ad...
Cant wait to see all the specs.
This reel is basically brand new!! Someone will get a steal of a deal on this reel!
Decided to delete my response....I dont want to stir up anything. Just trying to put out a great deal on a basically new reel.
SOLD TO THE SMART ONE....THX
Did I miss the price?
Perfect example in pic. Also, make sure you have the hook/gaff behind the line.... in case of a miss, you dont grab the line!
NO SHIT...gets old. Can you say BORING?
I agree Don...very cool tool to cut the chum!..... (Team Lotsa Luck)! Get to work! ;)
Has anyone noticed, unless they have changed it overnight. AVET is wrong in representing the line capacities on many of the reels I have looked...
Those short gaffs are for when fishing alone. Helps to manuver easier for a better kill shot when gaffing with one hand on your rod! IMO
GREAT JOB...always love to see the whippersnappers getting in on the action!
What were the fish caught on....you mentioned boxing the area. Were...
Big Boys size 15 shoe next to a 5lber distorts the size of the whole lot!

Striped for sure.

What is your definition of a "schoolie" sized fish.....debatable. Very Debatable!
50lb PP...30 or 40 top shot. No need to go to 65 if you will only be fishing line up to 40. 50 pp will give you a more line on reel which gives...
Nice Vid....Like the commentation in the background with some good info.
That is a nice BFT......he wasn't claiming a certain weight.....just that it was big (not a monster)....I agree. I just don't get the haters...
Great idea....Good Meat Scissors work well too.
One of the better posts for a good day with a NICE mixed bag/cooler......did you bleed your fish?
Nice Report....Nicer Fish!
Oh, I must have been seeing things in one video recently of you in your bigger boat with the hard top on smaller fish when you swung and missed....

One of the better dodo shots I've seen!
If it is within warranty, send back, Avet has great customer service. Shouldnt have that issue with a new reel, no need for new better bearings...
Classic example of a picture not doing the fish justice. Nice Homie!
Nice head shot!
Circle hooks 2/0-4/0, hardest bait to catch in the bait hold, nose hook on long soaks, butt hook on wide open bites....get bit count 3-4...
x2....but all that matters is that you beleive it! Must admit doesnt look 40 in the pics, but I agree pix can be deceiving. Great Job!
Awesome....just fucking awesome!! Geared up right wins the fight!!

Nice ...great memories for the kiddo....I guarantee one he will never forget. Good Job!
Cool....I take it you haven't had many fish eat through your line due to hook not being outside. So you are doing something right to get the hook...
Take it you weren't using circle hooks? Why? Would like to hear your opinion.
Scary shit out there, in a 35 Cabo with outriggers etc. we were able too dodge most of the worst areas and cells. Had we heard hissing from our...

Couldnt believe you could even pick the fish up to take a picture after that massacure! Epic Nice BFT and Toad yellers'.....:appl:

Nice looking ASS on that tuna...beautiful!
Thanks for info on line size..I wish you were using the 12, might have had a fighting chance with more drag. Great job again!!
You might not want to say they are GYROS, there is a big difference between them and Stabilized Binos. Big difference in price as well. GLWS.
Great report and even better seeing the youngsters getting to excperience this fishing, may be a few more years before they see this type of...
Nice work on the BFT...now thats a report! Even honest on the weights...IMO.

Great job on the troll. Were the porpoise tough too stay on?
Great day! Great Report! Nice to hear they can be metered and chummed up, hasn't been working on the BFT too well.
BFT might be tough as the mass of YFT has moved in. Not saying they arent still here, just a huge mass of YFT out there now!
Great memories there. Best fish keeping I have seen on a Private boat!! Must be tasty feesh.
You left out the best one this year IMO.....Flat Falls!
Honestly I dont think it matters if you can land your jig (any color/size) into the...

I need help! I watched the whole thing! Thank wife for me, for the go pros. Excellent job by the rod man...watch that thumb!
Couldn't agree more with your post. Especially whem it comes to the 809xhj..put the hurt on those BFT like no other rod I've wwned. I originally...

Ive been at it for over 30 years and can't ever remember BFT eating jigs like this. YFT....yes. BFT?
It was a first for me to cast iron to...
Sure beats the hell out of sitting on tuna pens, or having to meter them and hope to chum em' up from 100+ ft. on a longggg soak!
Foamers of BFT...
I have used and caught BFT's to 40lbs. so far on both my 700xh/Talica 12ii and 809xhj/16a......put the hurt to those tuna so quick I thought they...
So whats your go to for 40 on a 7' rod? I've seen the PSW 700XH handle 100+ pound YFT like they were 50lbrs....using a 50# top.

Gotcha. Myself as well on keeping a couple stiffies. I dont ever think I will give up on my Calstar 700H.
Love all the comments, thanks fellow BDers.
Sounds like a majority of people fishing the parabolic type rods are fishing straight spectra to...
Bitchen.......just Bitchen!!! Stud!
JOEY...is the man for great customer service....if there's a way, he will make it happen.
And I THOUGHT BASS FISHERMEN WERE OUT OF HAND........a rod for each technique.
Read the PM half day was able to chase the BFT down for 2?
Fucking Bitchen....if true...Woody!
Fishy? I didn't get charged shipping on my 16a.
For guys that have received your reel orders, how long did it take to get from day of online purchase?
