    Tranx 300a rod suggestions?

    I’ll mostly be fishing live bait/light jig (2-3oz) targeting halibut & rockfish off my kayak within a mile inshore. The reel is spooled w/ 50lb braid & short topshot of 20lb mono. I’m currently looking at the Phenix M1 Inshore & the St. Croix Avid Inshore. I’ve narrowed my list to 2 models, one...

    Shimano Shimano Calcutta 300D or Trinidad 10A/12A

    Two different reels. For all day casting swim baits the calcutta is a fine choice; but it won't be the best live bait reel because it doesn't have a clicker:( You might want to check out some of the other reels shimano offers that include a clicker & level wind, like the takota series for...

    New Accurate Boss Xtreme 400X 6.1

    The Accurate BX2 (2 speed) is 30% off @ tackle shops because they're making room for the new DPX series.. which I'm guessing is replacing it. If the reel I'm offering was in fact a 2 speed, it'd be even more of an awesome deal than the one I'm currently offering for my BX 400X (1 speed 6:1).:rofl:

    Shimano Trinidad 16NA or Accurate BX400XN?

    Will be using for the kelp cutter rig (65# spectra 40# fluoro). I know i can get about 170yrd of 65# spectra on the BX400XN, but im curious about the Trinidads line capacity; i know i should not trust whats written on the site/box. So its pretty much up to line capacity, smoothness, & star drag...

    Which Model Inshore Series For Cali Halibut?

    The extra 6" would make it difficult to store. I pulled the trigger on the 8' Fast 10-30ML already. When i get it, ill pull on it, and decide if i should keep or exchange it. It should be perfect for casting 3/4-1.5oz leadheads on 4-5.5" big hammers around kelp beds in 40-60ft deep max.. Im just...

    Which Model Inshore Series For Cali Halibut?

    Im settling with a factory wrap. Phenix has a 8' light #8-25 mod-fast version, the rod im looking at is a 8' med-light #10-30 fast. From what i understand, phenix blanks have pretty soft tips in general. One site i was looking at even had the ml #10-30 rated as mod-fast instead of fast; could be...

    Which Model Inshore Series For Cali Halibut?

    How about the 7'6" #10-30's Tip action.. i need it to be somewhat soft. Should i get the 8' instead.. or do you think the 7'6" will be soft enough for the white seabass? Im somewhat worried about pulling hooks with the low stretch spectra.

    Charter Recommendation Santa Cruz

    Theres a few charters in Santa Cruz, but most of them include all tackle; rods, reels, hooks, bait ect. If you plan on bringing your own outfits beware, because some charters forbid bringing braided line, rods over a certain height or bringing a rod altogether. The latter applies to trolling...
