    Custom (Fiasqo Rods) Calstar Baby Boomer w/Aftco #2 bent butt, Winthrop tip

    For Sale: Fiasqo Rod, custom Calstar Baby Boomer with #2 Aftco bent butt. I built this for myself but it’s too strong for the intended application. At the end of the pics is a video showing the rod loaded-up with an 18# bucket of lead, so you can see the action in real time. All Fuji SiC HBSG...

    Shimano Torsa 30 for $400

    Price drop to $400 + shipping from Florida. The Torsa is my favorite reel ever; I’ve for several but don’t use the 30. I love the 20, 40, and want a 16N, so I’d be willing to trade as well. Other trades options for Shimano Ocea Jiggers. I sent this reel in to Shimano for a service a year or...

    Oh and that tacos were from some place about about a block from Fisherman's Landing, which was highly-recommended and didn't disappoint. I can find the name

    3.5 Day Report (July 13-16) on the Success

    I build rods as a hobby and didn't have time to build any for this trip. More importantly, I wanted to see some of the west coast-style rods up close and in person, rather than just looking at specs and numbers online. I'm pretty familiar with the Calstar Grafighters and have about 10 back home...

    3.5 Day Report (July 13-16) on the Success

    This is my first "report" on this forum, so I apologize for the length/format if it's not the norm. My brothers, a couple friends and I had booked a 3.5 day on The Success a while back, but due to many circumstances we didn't get to go until last week. We had a trip out of Puerto Vallarta...

    3-4 Spots Available aboard "Success" 3.5 day trip -- true limited-load private charter (7/13-17)

    My brothers and I booked The Success for a private charter, wanting to take a few friends and have the whole boat to ourselves. A couple people had last-minute issues and can't make the trip. We've booked the whole boat, and 3-4 spots are available. Price is $1k plus $35 for permit and we...

    Anywhere to get a Calstar 90J online?

    Fisherman's Landing is where I'm going to get a rod or two. They earned my business on the phone. Thanks again

    Need rod/reel suggestion for 3.5 day out of San Diego

    That's what I've decided to do. I'm bringing a couple 8' rods over. When I get to SD I'll buy one or two 9' rods, fish them, and have the shop ship them back home, which they said was no problem. Thanks for all the great advice

    Anywhere to get a Calstar 90J online?

    Not what I wanted to hear. Maybe I'll pick up an 8' rod over there and bring it back. But I'm taking at least one 8' with me on the plane, if possible.

    Anywhere to get a Calstar 90J online?

    Longfin is who I called. Literally 20-mins ago. The guy that answered the phone said "we probably have them in stock, but with the internet guy out, we can't fulfill the order." I don't know how much an airline would charge for an oversize fee for a 9' rod, either. Something else I have to...

    Anywhere to get a Calstar 90J online?

    The only place that I found which has them in stock, isn't fulfilling orders right now because their "internet guy" is out sick. Whatever that means. I have a 3.5 day trip coming-up on the 13th, and I'm in Florida. Want to order a rod or two and bring with me (in addition to what I'm already...

    Anywhere online I can pick up a 90J? Mudhole is backordered so I won't have time to build it.

    Need rod/reel suggestion for 3.5 day out of San Diego

    Thanks for the response. I don't think I can get the 9' blank shipped so would have to arrange to pick it up in San Diego before the boat leaves

    Need rod/reel suggestion for 3.5 day out of San Diego

    I should also add that I can build rods and don't mind buying the blank and building it myself, time permitting.

    Need rod/reel suggestion for 3.5 day out of San Diego

    I'm sure threads like this have been posted many times, so I apologize if this is redundant, but I want some input. I'm a Florida fisherman, and an experienced one at that. But have a San Diego trip coming-up in a couple weeks and want to buy one combo (if possible) to supplement what I...

    Static Testing set-up

    My first post on this forum, so I apologize in advance if I'm breaking any forum rules. I did a search and didn't find the answer I'm looking for. Is there a simple set-up I can use to keep my blank at a 45-degree angle while under load (significant on heavier blanks) so that I can be free to...
