    GT51 vs GT54 transducer for So Cal water

    Correct but If you go with thru hull ducer then it’s a big PITA to take take it out later if you used 3M 5200 adhesive originally and you might have to cut new opening if you want to upgrade. For my boat, anything below the water line I like to do it one shot if it a thru hull.

  187. Tuna-Sniper

    80# Maxcuatro or 65# Powerpro both have same diamater but the Max is little more expensive, 130# floro top shot long enough but not through the guides.

    Yes, I will buy polarized filters and new eye pieces but have not had a chance. You have to buy it from their approved dealers and are listed on their website. I might sell one virgin S250 never been used or been on a boat ride so Pm me your number if you are interested

    Fraser Optics Options

    I have both, the quality is about same but the S250 is much lighter, uses one battery, lighter and the battery last longer. The Mariners is too heavy for my little arms and you have to buy it refurbished. Eye piece is a must and I had it on the Mariners but have not bought one yet for the S250.

    Trust me, after 50 casts with a Trini 20 and Tady 45 you will feel it and got plenty of lines. You do not need the Trini 30. Try the Trini 16 or 14 then you will not want to touch the 20 for live bait again but the 14 takes a while to bring a 25# fish in because the spool is so small.

    Airmar B275LHW on a Parker 2120?

    don't do it if you trailer the boat, I had it on the 2320 and it sticks down 2.5" on the fairing bock but they do work very well. Two mushroom transducers will achieve the same results but they sit flush with the hull.

    Looking for Talica 10ii

    you are better of looking for Trinida 14 or 16 then small 2 speed Tac 10. The 2 speed cast like crap and mostly be fishing with only 7-10 # drag and I am sure you do not need the second gear for 7-10 # drag.

    Yellowtail Dropper Loop Question

    after couple tries, I found the 3 way swivel to be the best with out line twisting using a big mac for bait but I found the technique of landing the fish is more important than anything else specially fishing down near rocks. Head down you lose and head up you win the first couple seconds.

    Best light wind kite

    Consumers benefit from having competitions. The Boston kite used to be around $85 until Westcoaster Kite came to the market a year or two ago. If I recall, Melton was the only dealer selling the Boston Kite couple years ago.

    2320 Parker

    Justin, FYI Parker 2320 is an ass heavy boat so I relocated two batteries to the starboard side and added a 160q Yeti in place of the bench. Space management is a challenge in the 2320. There are two 90# batteries and a battery charger in that corner.

    Parker 2520 XLD

    I got 300HP on the 2320SL. on the way out loaded heavy with 137 gal of fuel, two bait tanks(90 gallons), gear, tuna tower, ice, 4 guys, I get 1.6mpg. On the way in with empty bait tank and ice I get 2.2-2.4mpg. so 300HP is not enough for the 25.

    Parker - is the bad reputation justified?

    I think 2018 has like 2" more head room. They lowered the fishing deck and PH deck. I have 2007 and 2018 model.

    Parker - is the bad reputation justified?

    225 HP is way too underpowered for the 2320, I have 250HP on one and 300HP on the newer 2320 and 300 with electronic control it's kicking ass.

  533. Tuna-Sniper

    should I get a VISX 20 or 30 for trolling ?

    is the 20 little small for trolling ? I will be trolling with large diving lure creating a lot of drag and very far out in the clean water(guessing 100 yards or more)
  534. Tuna-Sniper

    what are the best bionocolars for working the tower?

    If price is not a concern then Fraser Mainer is much better then Fujinon Stabi. I had both Fraser and Fujinon Stabi but Fraser is a true gyro and much better technology(designed for military use), way less stress on your eyes but the minimum is to have a Fujinon Stabi on every boat.
  535. Tuna-Sniper

    Parker - is the bad reputation justified?

    I hate Parker boats so I had to have two 2320 at the same time. I bought a Parker for the big fishing deck space and a pilot house to protect me from the elements was #1 priority. All small boats will pound and if you are a hardcore tuna fisherman and could not take little pounding then stay on...

    for small reels, look for start drag. no need for 2 speed lever drag.

    Failed at Tuna today on Liberty

    Just don’t buy small two speed reels. They don’t cast well and you don’t need the 2 speed for low 7-12 # drag.

    Suggestions for my 1st Wahoo Trip

    Talica 20

    Why do you need 2 speed for such small reels and you most likely fish with no more then 12# drag ? Two speed cast like crap comparing to start drag reels. You are better off trading for Trini 14 & 16
