    Valiant 300 drag issue

    I took it to a tackle shop to have it spooled. Caught a 25lb salmon on the same braid last year. I use this reel for rockfish up at Big Sur and have hung up on rocks/kelp and have to lock down drag/thumb spool to break off. Maybe this broke my drag?

    Valiant 300 drag issue

    Was out fishing for salmon yesterday and the drag on my 300 had some major issues. The night before I preset my drag at about 7.5 pounds. The next day landed one salmon no issues, then on the second and third fish were lost as the drag decreased dramatically while fighting the fish. To have any...

    Looked at this post last night and literally dreamed up a nightmare that I had to sell my Bahia. If you had to sell and buy another Davis what would it be?

    Bluefin off Morro Bay

    Just got home from a long day of driving around for nothing. Skipped the yummy on the kite, trolled a variety of setups and zero strikes. Found very good looking water that maxed out at 65.5 F. No bait balls in the good water but as soon as we got back to green cold water 60F we saw huge schools...

    Bluefin off Morro Bay

    Morro Bay Boat Ramp

    Dang. Heard some chatter that MB officials are concerned that if MB is the only launch around there will be a huge influx of people from out of town....especially when salmon opens. What they don't realize is that it is rare that MB has a hot bite for salmon and with some bay area launches open...

    Outfit my Boat!

    Thanks guys! Honestly, that boat is turn-key and I am glad I can now take friends and family fishing. How should I approach rod reel combos? I hope my rockfish setups can double for salmon. At least the reels? Also, what is the bare minimum rod/reels for yellowfin tuna? Thanks!
