    Shooting Sealions? NOT COOL!

    Rick I do not believe you read this my original reply. Notice no mention of San Francisco's issues other than they are encouraging sea lions as a tourist attraction as now many cities are doing up and down the coast. Shadowx changed the subject and brought up homelessness. I then responded...

    Trinidad 20a vs Tranx 500 HG on Jig Stick

    Thanks Sammy I currently use my gold Trinidad 20 as my jig but I recently fished my 16a as a jig reel catching 5 big yellowtail and I realized how much more I liked this reel. The problem is this reel is also my go to bait reel, so now I "need" another reel!

  510. bparker1225

    Talica or Trinidad?

    Interesting you are combining both weights of fish to one answer. I also find it curious that you need or more than the 17 pounds of drag than the 14 maxes at or the 20 pounds of drag that the TAC 8 develops. You pull much harder than I.
  511. bparker1225

    Talica or Trinidad?

    I completely agree. The difference between the Trini 12 and 14 is spool width/ capacity as is Tac 8 and 10. All 4 will easily fish up to a 40 pound top shot.

    Advice about MMSI

    I like this, most of us fish within close proximity to the US border. The farthest south I have fished in my boat is maybe 70 miles below the border. In a life or death situation I want all the help possible. I will deal with the fcc later.

    San Q locals not happy with Long Range Fleet

    I will say he spoke very good English and was most likely illegally living in the US at some point and was deported. I know what you mean- my wife speaks perfect Spanish and people think she was deported from Mexico all the time! Her brother speaks 5 languages that really confuses people?

    An observation about the San Quintin vs Long Range dispute

    The one thing not mentioned how the Ensenada Bay / Todo Santos Island by agreement (exclusive economic zone) is not fished by our Sportsfisng Fleet and left to the local fishermen. Unless the long range fleet takes appropriate steps, I can also see US boats being not only banned from there but...

    San Q locals not happy with Long Range Fleet

    Yep 181 Americans killed during 2013-2014 in Reynosa Mexico bordering Texas. So its much safer for Americans than Chicago is now. The San Quintin pangeros have a limited resource to use to feed and support their families. The long rangers can fish pretty much fish any up and down the coast. As...

    Pacific Queen, 8/9

    My final thought on this. Drew and the crew on the PQ are catching these giant bluefin because they are targeting these fish, they are excellent fishermen and know what they are doing. Every night they are changing leaders and tackle so they are incredibly prepared. The Queen has an amazing...

    Pacific Queen, 8/9

    So with your quote the numbers he posted are still posted! You have 76 posts and you're already ranking the top 5 stupidest posts on Bd? I would suggest that is a bit pretentious at the least?.

    Pacific Queen, 8/9

    I have definately caught more fish on my Cal's16s than any of my other reels. It is my favorite reel for trolling and was for fishing big eye in the day. However for bait fishing I'll go to one of my Talicas every time. They some much lighter, better casting, and just more fun to fish. The 16s...
