Price is negotiable fells.
This is a great candidate for a bracket and outboard or a diesel swap.
Thanks. I agree wholeheartedly.
Honestly I hate to sell it.
This would be a great candidate for a bracket and outboard I think.
What Steve said. Last time out for me was 3 weeks ago. They were biting 30lb occasionally
And flat fall in the afternoon on 40 and 50lb line....
Good luck man. May the force be with you.

I have the 20 and went with the 700 yards of 100lb. This way I can tie whatever leader I want.
I use a progear V32. Casts as far as a Newell and puts down epic drag.

I did a 3 day in the Polaris last year in September. Seemed like a good time to me so I did it. If you’re an experienced fisherman I’d recommend...
Dam. In just paid 1000 for an estament and and inspection. This house buying shit is killing me
I just ordered a 775XXXH. Thanks for cleaning up what real I should put on it.
Seriously, if I can sneak to funds over the next couple weeks without it causing an issue with escrow I’ll take it.
Just let me know if something...
If I wasn’t in escrow and really needing to watch what I spend I would be all over this.
If still available in a few weeks let me know. Lol
Hull kinda looks like my air slot. Only bigger.
That is one great looking boat.
Well done. Nice report
I heard it wan more like a spotted owl or California condor....
I’m gonna try an avet jx 6/3 myself
Is the chart card an sd card? Do you know if it’ll work in other plotters?
That’s racist. Don’t those orcas know that’s not politically correct now? They should progress and become vegan
I see a 1 metric ton per trip until the 120 metric ton limit is hit.
Know of Any links I can read on that?
I just ordered a 775XXXH calstar.
80-unlimited. Plan on fishing 100lb and up.
Fished the queen allot last year. Will do it again this year. One could complain about any boat really, but the crew on the queen are fishy and...
Will the president of said shithole countries open his doors for you? Or subsidies your life if you went to said shithole country? Not deport you?...
Dam you. I’m waiting on a loan to buy a house or I’d be all over this
Hahahahhaha. Thank you.
Thank you v
ery very much sir.
When is it?
52 is a sick ass reel.
Wish I could take it off your hands.
Good idea I couldn’t agree more
Or maybe folks should regulate themselves.
It’s great as a community to come together with ideas to make fishing...
When was this video filmed?
What turners were you at?
Dude at the shop said I need a new ram? 3200 bucks. Where’s the guy selling the outdrive?
Pulling it and doing it myself. I don’t feel like being...
How about asking to not be ripped off?
Going to download a schematic/ manual for the outdrive. It it appears somewhat simple I’ll give it a shot.
Sound advice from y'all and thank you.
Copy. And looking at this schematic I’m way off already. It’s the trim for the outdrive itself.
Noob, I get it.
To a shop it is for I know nothing...
Good question on weather or not they’re electric or hydraulic.
I’m having some charging problems at the moment.
So I have a question for those that know
I have a leak exiting for the exhaust on my outdrive and my trim tabs aren’t working now....
I landed a 60lb yellowfin last Tuesday with a progear v32 and 20lb test. Solid reels
I’ve always used Ande
My wife complains about the one boat I have.
There’s one for sale here on this site.
What he said.
Condolences on your grand father
Tie what you want. What you’re most comfortable with. Remember, all knots fail at some point. Just use the one you’re most confident with.
I was at the 43 last month and it was teaming with big bluefin.
Yummy flyer. My brother was on that trip.
Went on the RP for the first time last month and it was definitely a great experience.
If anything, storage can be an issue if you're "that guy"...
Thanks for the input y'all
Yeah I'm still learning the unit I have. It's a chart plotter/fish finder/soñar. Unsure if I can add radar to it.
so I'm thinking about radar for my boat. Do any of y'all have radar on your boat?
Can I buy an affordable used unit or should I just buy a new...
I'm new to boating so thank you for posting this. Not that I would have done it in the first place, I've been fishing long enough to know better,...
Some douch did the same thing when I was on the Polaris last month. It was funny to watch them get tangled around the anchor by a big bluefin. But...
Good luck man.
So I'm just looking for info of y'all will share it.
What's the best landing to launch out of to fish the island? Distance miles wise...
Well, at least the seiners can't fish there as well.
It may be a blessing in disguise
Can I ask what the adoption fee is?
I need to see if I have space on the deck of my boat. If you still have it by the time I get out to the boat I'll pm you.
Intent on an over night with them earlier this year. Very comfortable very large boat. Great crew and great food.
Price was amazing as it was 100...
I got trailer tow service with my plan. Then I have vessel assistance with trailer service as well. Still cheaper than what geico quoted me
Hahahahha. No shit. That's crazy.
AAA just quoted me 241.
What a huge difference.
They just quoted me 573.
Is that good?
Wow. What a nice boat.
I don't agree with all this bs. And that's my opinion. I'll choose not to watch or buy anything related to the NFL.
Because they won't get paid if they don't show up.
What are the dimensions? How many scoops will it hold?
Anyone willing to share any intel on the yellowfin around Dana point?
That's a nice looking boat.
I don't think it's a star drag. I saw the 3D print online and it was a lever drag.
Yellowtail special V50.
Won't be out until next year. They're doing testing on it now. Then I believe there will be a 2 speed coming out late...
Can anyone direct me to some good coordinates for fishing Los Angeles county?
I hear the bluefin are off the west end of Catalina. Wondering if...
Thank you blackfish.
We've had the boat out to Santa Cruz Island already a few times. And I got pretty nasty and I'm still here lol.
Holy smokes. Thank you
hay folks, soooo does anyone have or would share coordinates to the 43? And the 183?
What's the best dock to launch from?
I went with boat USA
Better to have it and not need it than need it and not have it. Thanks for all the responses.
Thanks for the input. Much appreciated
Sorry for not being clear.
I'm looking to purchase vessel assistance and looking for advice on companies
Any recommendations on companies?
It's a welcraft air slot single prop.
miorning folks. Well today I will become a boat owner for the first time. Picking up a little 24 footer with a chevy 350 in it with a 100 gallon...
I paid 40 for the mustads. They're the best I've used yet
Mustads. Just picked them up and they're great. They open owner split rings like nothing and I mean the 240 lb ones.
hay folks, so long story short, I had a guy tie a rod for me, and I've used the rod once and I'm replacing a guide.
My question is, what are the...
Hahahha well may the fish Gods shine down on you.
Well done Gerry.
May you be blessed with a 200lb BFT this year.
Bow down to the fish gods
Well done man. Well done
Hahahhahajaj. I ordered some on line for 25 bucks and some 150 fluro on eBay. Good luck.
I found flights on cheap trips for less than 300 round trip.
Wow. So I'm pretty sure I got this springer knot down and dam that's a strong knot.
No slippage, and no breaking under massive pressure.
Even San Diego over night boats don't require passport because they're not within the 12 mile limit. My understanding is if you're outside the 12...
Yes, I'm using the 150 just to hopefully not get chewed off.
Thinking of just running the Collins knot straight to the 100 lb top shot.
Thanks so much.
Wow. Thanks. I'm tying a flat fall to 150 then a swivel. To much? I don't like all the possible points of failure but....
So I've used the search and now I'm here posting the question.
Making 150lb leaders and I don't have crimping stuff.
What knot would y'all use...
I changed hooks and split ring out to 8/0 hooks
Tying 150 lb leader. I don't have a crimping deal so I'm trying to figure out the best knots to use.
Well done again.
That's so great. Congratulations
God bless and take care of yourself.
Was just at Richards tackle in Rosemead and they turned me on to a pair of mustad split ring pliers and they're the best. No issue at all.
Appreciate the help.
Don't want to loose a possible cow because of hook failure.
Maybe I'm not using the split ring pliers correctly?
I can't seam to open the ring enough to get the hook started without a second set of hands...
Sooooo, I'm changing the split rings and hooks on FF for the bigger tuna running around.
Can anyone give me some tips to make it a bit easier?...
Seriously. Throw out a price
Just guessing, but maybe shelter island?
If I wasn't spending a grand right now getting tires I'd be all over it. Dam.
I've always been a fan of tournament ande line.
Even the regular ande is great line imo
Cory, if you don't mind me asking, how did you rig the 150 fluorocarbon?
Swivels? Then tied to flat fall?
Yes sir. Take an 80, or 100.
Better to have it and not need it than need it and not have it.
Sorry for the short answer earlier
Good luck I...
I love the way you narrate you reports.
Great job and congratulations.
Does a bear shit in the woods?
Supercrete, or rapid set.
The grout you're talking about is for brick and stone application and is not designed for what you want to use it for....
I just changed some out. Went with a heavy duty 6/0.
Thanks for the input.
Congratulations. Nice catch
I don't believe so. That's a good knot, it just won't go through the eyes very good.
My buddy picked up an avet 3 speed that's pretty dam sick. It's an 80 and looks like a truck wench but I saw a video of the owner of avet using...
would anyone here battle a tuna on a 90m?
Or would. 100j be your preference?
Just searching for ideas for an upcoming trip.
Well done. Congratulations
I'm going to try Sav on tackle
I've heard nothing but good stuff. But Bob Sands is a great great store and always worth the drive out there.
What about a cousins 90m?
I love it on yellowtail, though I've not really been tested on it with a luncker yet.
alright guys and gals,
What's y'all thoughts on the moon phases affecting fishing for these tuna?
California is so greedy it doesn't matter to the legislature.
If it makes them money and they can tax the shit out of it they're in.
Dam, I'm under gunned for this trip coming up.
There's been several caught on flat falls as mentioned above.
We trolled a flying fish and it stayed on top just doesn't have the same action as...
IMO you need to be prepared for the larger grade tuna on your jigging setup.
80 lb if possible. If you have allot of line on the 65lb setup, 80lb...
Sick. Thanks y'all
Anyone have an idea of the line capacity of the avet jx 6/3 raptor?
thinking of 80lb
Just my two cents.
First of all, unless you're comiting a crime, the police have no right to search you or your property unless you give them...
Shoot me a flyer please.
100 miles is a great start. Hawaii went to 200 I believe two years ago.
It sucks as a sport fisherman to see those guys out there just raping the...
I agree. I use to much of the tackle i lug around
Been down 6 times this year already and I've seen them on every trip as well as the pens they hold the catch in.
Sad to see as a sport Fisherman.
I was in a trip not long ago with a marine biologist who gave me the run down on BFT and their reproductive weight and so on.
Changed my whole...
Look on letgo as well. There's always allot of inexpensive gear on there.
So cheep sometimes I think it's stolen.
I landed a cal star 700 rod and Newell 332
A G lomis fly fishing rod and reel still packaged
And a 8 foot shimano bait stick at the Salvation...
They're great ceviche
I do. I'm bummed I have to work all weekend
Dam. Work always gets in the way.
I'm planning on 5 for the 3 day in September I'm going on.
100#, 80, 60, 40, 20.
I'll just change leader to accommodate.
I've been thinking of going smaller.
Yet, every time I've been out this year, I've used so much tackle I've got in this thing because I have it....
I have that same set up.
It's epic. Carries all I need and more.
I enjoy making bait, as someone else stated, it is fishing after all.
And what happens if I catch nothing but bait?
I'd hate to be out there and...
Very interesting rig.
I'm gonna have to give that a try.
Thanks for sharing and congratulations
I feel ya
What a hog. Well done.
What he said, but also, you cannot sell it, transfer it, gift it, nor can your children inherit it.
It doesn't cost allot to make it featureless,...
That's what I was thinking but un sure. Thanks for the input guys.
I'm pairing a jx 6/3 raptor with a seeker 7650
What line would y'all run on the reel?
I talked with one a few weeks ago on a boat, won't mention the name, he's making 175 a day plus his fillet money and tip share.
He's working 7...
Sick. Thank you.
Thank you sir. Much appreciated
Is this for towing a boat down? Or should I do all this if I want to fish san Quintin or Ensenada?
I was gonna say the same thing.
Sounds like my last trip on the queen
I have a little PG V32 with like 380 yards of 40 spectra and still enough room for 100 yards topshot. On my V40 like 400 yards of 40 braid and...
I use a cousins 90m and a progear v52 an I can bomb the crap out of a jig with that setup.
Bro, these reels have been around for a while. Just because 2 speeds came out doesn't mean that reel still won't work for these fish. Half the...
Still for sale?
hay folks how's it going?
So I'm heading out to the islands tomorrow on a private boat looking for some YT and White Sea bass.
Can anyone help...
I'm sure wherever you launch from will have them.
Where'd you find them at?
I'm only finding the small 1oz
Are you going on a private boat? Or a party boat?
They sell them at the harbor.
I use the RP knot or the double uni. Neither has failed me yet. As well, I've never had the Albright knot fail me either. For speed, on the boat...
Amazing catch. Well done.
I've always been a fan of Andi tournament line.
Has never let me down
I was out this past weekend on the first string and there was a marine biologist on board from dept fish and wildlife. I'm not arguing the points...
Is it cool if I store your number and text you in the near future to check your schedule or your plans on fishing? I'm slammed with work this...
So, do you mix the powder with the epoxy?
Or with paint, then apply the epoxy?
Is it a two speed?
I tried everyone I know. I can't believe they'll pass this up
Alright, I signed up and working on a couple more. This is a great deal and we need 9 more bodies to make it happen.
It seems like speaking Greek to me.
I'm so new to fishing braid I miss a little lost.
But I'll take it to a shop and gin from there.
Any idea how many are already signed up?
I'm between this trip and driving down to SD for a 3/4. Although, I really dislike fishing on a loaded boat
Great question. I'm new to fishing with braid so I'm eager to hear the input
I called to see if they had drags for one of my reels. Not only did they have them, they set them aside packaged all nice for me to pick up later...
Great info. Thank you
I'm still trying to figure out what my delivery got pushed 4 days by ups.
Praying for a speedy recovery.
I was thinking the same. And actually thinking of going down to 80 but I already have an 80 set up.
So here's a question for y'all
So in a trip I lost half a spool of 100 pound spectra to the ocean.
My question is, would you just tie on a new...
I feel for you bro.
Fishing and my job keep me here.
Mainly the job
Or, I'm open for a tax deductible donation. :)
Any of the folks here watch the documentary on Discovery called "Sacred Cod"
Holy shit I just saw this. Thank you so much. That is awesome
I was wondering the same thing.
I read almost the entire write up, and from my understanding, the fishery can't be targeted for "commercial?" Or...
I was on the tribute last week and it's a clean boat. Deck hands are good, the cook is good, bunks are good. Etc. I recommend the tribute. Having...
You take a rubber band and loop it around your main line with the weight attached. I'm not near tackle to show you a picture.
Salt water eats...
I was unprepared last trip. Now I have everything I think, as soon I receive these new flat falls I ordered
Education about the species and their breeding habits needs to be put out there from deck hands to captains etc.
That's just my opinion. I was...
Hot dam. Well done
Nope. You're not alone. I was trying to long on before I came in here.
Wonder what's up?
You getting a 403 error?
I'm with you on that hahaha.
The look on people's faces hahahahha no shit. I haven't kept a calico since the mid 90s or any bass for that...
I'm guilty, I kept a couple fish yesterday, but released 5. I had what I wanted to eat and honestly, even if they were bigger than they were, I'd...
Yes sir I did.
We had a few good chews on little yellow tail but no bluefin for us
It's all good. The bullet train is gonna go through there when it breaks. Save the taxpayer billions instead of tearing it down manually
I just checked in and brought 4
This other dude has an arsenal of gear. Holy shit.
And I was worried?
Heading out on the tribute
I was supposed to Bebe on it today, then that thing called work got in the way.
They were cool and bummed me to tonight.
heading out on an overnight trip and don't want to be "that guy"
How many rods do y'all take?
40 multi purpose...
It's funny how the lone republican vote came from a rep with a civil engineering company.
Gee, you think he'll get any of the contracts ?
Right, I saw all that fine and dandy stuff. But what he said in the past was the "we" would vote on new taxes via ballot. Not just the dildos in...
Didn't brown say he wouldn't raise any taxes without it going to a vote?
I feel like I've been bullied and they're taking my lunch/fishing money.
Horseshoe kelp puts out some toads
Oh how I covet thee
The islands are holding them. They're just like you said though, ghosts. I've yet to land...
Wow, thanks a million Amadeus.
Wow, yeah for sure. I'm definitely interested in upgrading all my penn reels at this point.
They've been very great to me. I'm going to start...
Well, that was the last one and it was a beast to get out. I think the last two were teflon or something.
I dunno. But I learned a valuable...
Dam, you are correct my friend. Thank you.
I thought I was good to go
Womp there it is
So, here's what happens when you never service a reel fishing with it for 20 plus years.
I had to force this washer out and now it looks like...
Thanks y'all. Had to get to bed.
I'm gonna try and get this thing out.
I think it's a stuck brass washer of some sort.
Thanks for your help.
This main gear isn't as deep as the one in another real I have. Weird
Copy. Now the thing isn't going back together. Stack is to tall
Hay folks, so I'm attempting to replace the drag stack in my penn 500, and it's to hi. The reels not going back together the way it should.
Hay folks, when I grease the drag washers, di I grease the whole thing?
Or just the inner hole that goes over the gear sleeve?
I'm a little...
I'm heading out on the tribute on 4/7. Can't wait.
Im using the new progear violators. They're reasonably priced, plenty of drag.
Im giving them a shot.
I picked up a used shimano tiagra 16 last year for 250. It's a 2 speed and came with 100 lb spectra on it, although I think that's to heavy and...
I also have the v40 with 450 yards of 40 and 100 foot of 30lb. 22lbs drag. That one was 200.
I just picked up a progear vioñlater 32 and spoiled 400 yards of 40lb braid with about 100 foot 20 lb top shot
25lbs of drag. Reel was 250. Gonna...
Well.... I think this pretty much destroys my want of raw fish.
I've eaten plenty of hearts. Never had a problem.
I learned from a sushi chef, put fish on ice 3 days before eat raw.
It's been my practice every since and I've never been let down.
I still use my 500 and squider.
40 mono on the 500 and 15 mono on the squider. Only locally though.
I did use the 500 on yft last year, but that...
Thank you for the report
any members out over the weekend with a report to share?
That's to bad. I went to have line put on a couple reals and got a serious lesson in line selection to the reel you're fishing.
Give them another...
2 locations? Where's the second one?
I drove from DTLA. No thanks that it matters, it was cool for the wife and into get away for a few hours.
So I went out to charkbait today to have some line put on a couple new reels I bought from them at the pacific coast show and let me just say,...
So there's a jig out that's completely wired through and I forgot the name of them.
Is it the ahi assault jig? Or another one.
Dick. Any time I've I've won jp I've given it to the crew.
What a dildo
I fished that boat last season and it wasn't bad but it wasn't great. Went looking for bft and came home with Rock fish.
Crew was inexperienced...
Looks like the penn is best bang for the buck.
The shop I bought the V52 from said I could handle a fish in the 100 lb class with...
Good morning folks, looking for suggestions for a two speed reel that can handle 100lb class bluefin.
I'm currently running the new progear line...
Are the fishing rods ok?
My name is Maurice, hard worker, good gear and I play well with others.
I'm really interested in learning my way around a boat and I...
X2 and that pesky thing called work. Ffs
But I'm not an asshole
Don't want to sound dumb, but what size is this reel compared to like a penn 4/0?
I'm hearing about the navy messing with people more and more than before.
I guess we can blame trump.
We just need to be on our Ps and Qs down...
Need to plan a trip down.
This is great
Where are you willing to meet?
I'll buy it tomorrow for sure
Interested in the 6465.
I'll have to wait a couple days. If it's still available I might have to take it off your hands.
That is a sick ass station
I'm taking a cousins 90m with a progear v52 in my next trip
Should be pretty good
Wow. Happy everyone is safe.
Wonder if it coulda been albis?
Been wanting to get a trip on that boat.
Thanks for the report.
The shogun is allot less expensive for the same trip.
That's something else I'm looking at in between.
As Gary said, this is something I've been...
I'm so dam excited about this trip. Been wanting to go on the RP for years.
Thanks man. I appreciate your advice
Thanks man. Good thing I still have time to buy a little more gear
At this point, I prefer quality over quantity. That's really what I'm hoping for.
Morning folks, I may have messed up with the previous post, but it might be pith there somewhere, so sorry if this looks like a second post with...
That's a dam good looking job there buddy.
So I'm going on my first trip in the Polaris, a 3 day trip. Looking for advice on gear/tackle to take.
The trip is in September,...
In the rocks?
Probably 50 pounds use it on an 8' stick
Keep it universal
I'm really interested in getting on a trip on this boat next year. Any advice on a charter set up I could join?
I'll be there. Looking for a progear v42 in blue
Maybe another in silver
Keep your focus on the horizon. That's what was taught to me. And as was said earlier, if you're pron you're pron.
Kinda scary really.
Did that for years. Been Leary the last few years to make the trek. This year will be my first trip on the Polaris and not fishing the islands...
Wow. Ok cool. Appreciate the info guys
Asking because I'm planning a trip to san Quintin in April.
Sooo, I haven't been down to Mexico in years. What's the process now if I want to head to san Felipe or Ensenada? Do I have to get visas now when...
no shit. Seems there's no stopping them. Sad reality.
The poaching in the Mediterranean to the decemation of spawning grounds. Sad state of...
does anyone think said blob could be all the Fukushima stuff? I dunno.
Or is it just the heat from the equator pushing up?
so hay folks. Back in the day I used to fish Ensenada religiously and haven't been down in over ten years.
I used to fish a panga owned by a...
Agreed. I remember the days when the albis made their way through our waters. I spent allot of time in Baja then catching them. Back then though,...
I don't think you're dreaming. I feel the same way.
I think if there's another great season like last, these fish will continue to come yearly....
Hay guys and gals,
So I'm new here but not to fishing and wanted some feedback on these two reals.
They're basically the same real, so what is the...
