    1.5 day rod/reel help

    You're set. I just got off the Polaris Supreme and we were using 40# for flat falls and sinker rigs. The BFT were keyed in on small flat falls.

    Polaris Supreme 4/23 - Nothing to report.

    I'm on a 1.5 on the Polaris Supreme leaving tomorrow. Sure hope the bite turns back on. Damn BFT fishing.

    Should I even bring 40lb on a 1.5?

    I'm going out tomorrow on a 1.5 and bringing 6 rods from 20# to 100#. Never know what you'll run into.
  14. bob1825

    Should I even bring 40lb on a 1.5?

    Depending on which boat he is going on they might have it.
  15. bob1825

    Should I even bring 40lb on a 1.5?

    Cheaper than buying one. And, if you are paying all that money to go on a BFT trip why skimp on your gear? My 2 cents.
  16. bob1825

    Should I even bring 40lb on a 1.5?

    I suggest renting a 100# outfit from the landing for a flatfall set up. I'm heading out on the PS Wednesday and plan on bringing a 100# flat fall and 80# sinker rid set up.

    Reel bag, box , or mounted on rod for transport?

    It really depends on the length of the trip. For long range trips I use a reel bag. If I'm taking 5 setups or less i usually mount the reels on the rods and bundle them together to carry to the boat.
  51. bob1825

    Am I paying too much? Or not enough?

    I pay $200 for labor alone so I'd say you're getting a heck of a deal. If he's new to wrapping maybe he wants the practice.

    United Composite UC RGP Mega Plus C+

    I can't believe this is still available at this price. This entire product line is amazing. I've got the GP Terminator, GP Predator, 2 GP Megas and I'm having a GP Mag built. Just swap out the leader and you can fish multiple line classes easily. GLWS.

    United Composite UC RGP Mega Plus C+

    It's a great 30/40# rod. Offshore I pair mine with a Talica 10II for tuna and yellowtail, while I fish it at 30# with a Fathom 25 NLD2 at Channel Islands for WSB and lingcod. Love it so much I have two - factory wrapped and custom.

    My first multi day fishing trip

    What they said, but I would consider booking one of the boats out of Seaforth landing. Plenty of free parking.

    12VISX or 16VISX????

    You should ask TunaNorth that question, he is the Penn rep here on BD. Personally, I wouldnt feel comfortable fishinf anything smaller than the 16 at 100#.
  422. bob1825

    12VISX or 16VISX????

    I think the 12 does cast a bit bitter cause it is smaller, but the 16 casts fine. I put a small egg sinker on both reels and practice casting in the off season.
  423. bob1825

    12VISX or 16VISX????

    I have both and they are great reels. I would suggest going with the 16Visx so you have the option of fishing it at 100# if you like.

    Which rod would you recommend to fish lead heads with squid for WSB? It will be matched with a Tern 400, Torium 16HGA, Tesoro 10 or similar size reel. Thanks in advance.

    Does the reel enable you to move the handle from the left to the right? I prefer using my right hand to wind. Thanks!

    shimano tekota a 500 for slow pitch?

    Thanks Mike. I intend to use the reel for deep drop rock fishing either ganyons or ahi assassin jigs so I think the larger spool will be ok for me. I have plenty of other reels that might make better slow pitch jigging outfits.

    shimano tekota a 500 for slow pitch?

    i just ordered a Tekoda 600 for rock fishing/jigging. I was told the 500 was about the size of a Torium 14HGA and the 600 was about the size of a Torium 16HGA, only a little wider. Like you said, should be very comfortable to fish all day. Which rod are you planning to use?

    Reel Recommendation for 1 Day and Overnight SD Trips

    I like the Torium 16HGA. I've used mine to catch rock fish on jigs up at Channel Islands and yellowtail and dorado on kelp on offshore trips. It is paired with a Phenix 809H. It is my go to set up for anything under 30#.

    How nice of them to overflow into the three landing's parking. Yet another reason to keep fishing out of Seaforth.
