    Shit is getting real. I don't post here much anymore however Thrasher has deep Roots on BD. Thrasher Rods has a new partner, Benjamin @Reel Hooker has been a great friend from the beginning and will now be running the business, I will continue with the things I'm good at. We've been working...

    Thrasher salmon rods.

    SOLD!!! I have a pair of 9 foot 10-30 rods with Alps titanium guides and a Winn grip looking for a home, $400 for the pair. These are new, never fished. Jason 425 956 4756


    SOLD!! Not sure what this is worth, $100? Jason 425 956 4756

    Jack Pole

    SOLD!!! I have a tre-fin jack Pole, $200 Jason 425 956 4756

    Coffee grinder

    Thrasher, TRMF 76H, Rasta tuna destroyer. 7'8" popping and stick baits.

    Aftco gaff

    6 ft by 3 inch hook, $60 Renton Highlands. I put a tape measure on the hook but I think it's still considered a 3-inch hook, not sure.

    Custom gaffs

    These two are done and ready to go, they are built on my USA made blanks and utilize a usa-made Winthrop 2" hook. These are American AF and perfect for Albacore. The blue one is 4 ft 5 in, the green one is 5 ft 3 in. $250 each or we can build you a custom gaff.


    What is everybody using? I've been using Terrafin for the last few years but recently saw something about Ripcharts that looked pretty cool. My current subscription is about to end so now would be a good time to change over if it's the better option.

    Just in case

    Doing a one-time run of these super fancy Carhartt rain guard hoodies, zipper or pullover, they're expensive AF, my cost after tax and printing in three locations will be $75. Also doing some shirts and hats, give me a call or text if you want anything at cost. I'll be in Westport August 7th...

    Making memories

    Today was one of the best days ever. I'm sure all of us that are raising or have raised children have had these moments. Today I watched my 11 year old son Zak battle a 130lb Bluefin on a rod he helped build, yes he had some help, but watching him pull as hard as he could for as long as he...

    Bluewater Baller

    I can't imagine anything better than fishing with kids. We found a few of these 65 miles offshore in the PNW on Sunday . My boy is a chip off the old block. He's become a full-on gear snob and elbows me out of the way at the bait tank. Now he says he needs a twin spin for his birthday in...

    What's really going on

    Everything I'm hearing seems to be very vague right now. Whether it's about jumpers close in but no word if they're biting and how many were caught. Or mediocre numbers running 60 plus miles. I'd love to hear current reports, like daily, from those who are running. I'm ready to go again but I'm...

    Garmin GSD 22

    I had Garmin send me a new one while troubleshooting some issues on the boat. GSD 22 was not the problem. They gave me a Smokin deal on it because I was troubleshooting an issue. Anybody want it for $250 is welcome to it or I'll send it back for a refund. Jason 425 956 4756

    Should Benjamin kick some other clients out of the way and make a priority of doing the vinyl for my truck so it looks cool at the WTC. It looks like a fucking painters truck. He designed a badass new logo for me. But we don't know if he can get it done on my schedule. Either way I'm...

    Saltwater Wide open

    I was lucky enough to get a deal with Patrick to fill his boat with rookies on Sunday the 17th. So it was me and Zak, my business partner and co-owner of thrasher rods, Jim, but we just call him pockets, and his posse of rookies. It was absolute insanity, Captain Dave Anderson was running the...

    Trailer tongue weight scale

    I just bought one and everyone is welcome to borrow it. It made the job easy moving boat back and forth on the trailer at the launch to get it where I want it. I weighed the boat and trailer on the scale at the dump. I put 10% on the tongue which for me is 1100 pounds. I wound up moving the boat...

    I'm going to destroy some blanks

    I just have questions as to how to set it up. Originally I was thinking I'd make a bracket for my forklift to hold my blanks at 45 degrees and then just pull with the cord coming out of the blank plumb. But I'm wondering if it would be a better comparison if I set it up so that I'm pulling at a...

    Acid wrap

    Anybody ever consider this for live bait rods? The geometry sure seems to make good sense when planning on fighting with 30 pound fish all day. I've never fished an acid wrapped rod before, or spiral wrapped as some would say. Do they cast ok who has fished with one before. I'm thinking about...

    Livewell /Baitwell

    I'm looking at the Kodiak PF 22 mainly because I think it will fit in the factory location on my GW 272 sailfish.
