    Lol it's a business.... Not a charity. These guys with their asses off and work extra long hours. So you want to fish longer than the trip advertise but you are tripping for paying a little extra to do so? If this trip they limited out on bft, you guys wouldn't be complaining. In the customer...

    Aztec was the first boat to explore different zones and found the larger yft earlier this fall. They take risk and most of the time, it pays off big

    Offshore Aztec tanker BFT at Tanner 11/7

    Thanks. I did the slider setup with a Carolina keeper 3ft up to keep the sinker away from the hook. On the dolphins, we got the yft on squid. Flyline and slider. No jig fish, just captain finding the dolphins (yft), meter marks on bft.

    To be honest, I just got off the Aztec and the cook was awesome. I ordered late and was no issue. There was three of us just sitting in the galley chit chatting and Capt Greg came in and asked if we needed anything to eat. I'm pretty sure it was done kind of miscommunication

    The fish were not line shy at all. Most were fishing 60 and at that depth, visibility is not an issue. I personally like to fish the lighter set up as my 60# rig was a tib'd TLD 20II. Too bulky to fish all day. The bluefin were strictly on live squid... Only live. As for bait supply, there was...

    Shimano Talica 12II or 16II

    just make sure you stored the reel in freespool after cleaning and leave it in high speed
  153. Shogunsc4

    Shimano Talica 12II or 16II

    I have both talica 12 and 16. The talica 12 is very versatile and will fish both 40/50 with ease. Fill it to the brim with 65# spectra and just change the top shot. For typical 2.5 day around here, it will handle almost anything. The talica 12 is much more balanced reel IMO.

    I fish 40# on mine. Plenty of backbone

    Shimano Tn 16a or 20a?

    It's pretty much the same reel except the width. I prefer the 20 for line capacity in case you go on longer trips and also having more line on the reel is better for inch per crank on the yoyo or wahoo.

    I need a reel run down for 3 day trips or less.

    1) sounds good 2) you NEED to spectra back the reel...it does not hold enough 30# mono for any kind of long soak and if you get bit by a bigger bft...you're done. One tangle on a long soak, the entire outfit is useless for the trip. I'd fish a short 40# flouro topshot rather than 30# 3) ok... 4)...

    If I were you, save the money for more fishing trips. Why waste money for trolling steup when every boat in the fleet provides them free of charge. For 3 day trips or less, you will use mainly 30# and 40#. All you need is a shit load of flurocarbon. Accurate reels have their niche in the market...

    Avet SX vs. Saltist LD20.

    The saltist casts a lot better than the SX. Material used...SX is anodized machined aluminum while saltist is painted cast aluminum. Drag is stronger on the Saltist. Saltist feels smoother on the crank. I have those reels and fished those reels...prefer the saltist myself for performance.

    X2 Owner of 3 saltiga 30 and a 40 myself and NEVER had an issue. Hands down the best star drag reel on the market. If I recall correctly, Alan Tani tested the roller bearings and they can withstand 16# before slipping. 16 pound of drag is a lot of drag and you don't even need that much drag...

We anticipated slow fishing since the wind was gusting with gale force warning for 3 consecutive days and slowed to just over 35 mph an hour before our departure. At the landing, there were people going...

    Well...you just have to realize that if you are fishing on a sport boat, have some courtesy for others and don't fish like you own the boat....especially when the boat is crowded. But in this case, it is ok since the original poster said the load was light.

  429. Shogunsc4

    Which reel?

    The 15/30 is a great low-maintenance reel. Just replace the left plate bushing to a ball bearing and you're good to go. I just didn't like how loud the clicking-dog anti-reverse sounded. Like mentioned above though...get the SL-X instead (if you don't mind the gear box position). Way better reel...
  430. Shogunsc4

    JX, Tyrnos 10, or Saltist 20 for 30lb?

    You can easily fish the JX with 25-50# even though the reel's sweet spot is at 40#...just got to keep in mind the original poster is mounting the reel on a Phenix 868.
  431. Shogunsc4

    JX, Tyrnos 10, or Saltist 20 for 30lb?

    Not at all...all reels mentioned have one-piece aluminum frame of some sort...the daiwa saltist LD has a one-piece cast aluminum frame...more rigid then anyone ever needs for a 30# reel. A few guys that fished the smaller saltist LD said they have massive torque.

  434. Shogunsc4

    JX, Tyrnos 10, or Saltist 20 for 30lb?

    stick with a lighter reel like a saltist...phenix 868 is a lightweight 25-30# rod...IMO the JX and tyrnos 10 are too heavy and will make it feel unbalance on your hand. I have a JX 6/3 and it is an awesome 40# reel. A better match would be a MXJ but I would stick with the saltist.

    thursday at the fred hall show

    I know I'm asking for a quick death here for arguing with the master of reels...but wouldn't a properly maintained roller bearing hold its anti-reverse function if the drag is set at less than 15#? As the single ambassador style dog is only a backup. For 40# test, most we need is 12# of...

    Daiwa Saltist LD40II

    finally got around "tuning up" my STTLD40II...the right spool bearing is different than the LD20 and i bent my swiss army knife before I got the RIGID shields out...it is not the type with the retainer ring. I opened up the two spool bearing and did the ReelX treatment...packed all non-spool...
  454. Shogunsc4

    Daiwa Saltist LD40II

    Does the STTLD20II have a roller bearing along with a backup dog anti reverse? I was playing with my STTLD40II and it appears that you have to turn the handle counterclockwise a bit to shift into high or low gear.
  455. Shogunsc4

    Daiwa Saltist LD40II

    I agree with the saltigas...best reel money can buy. As for the LD's anti-reverse....Daiwa did mention that the 2 speed units have the "precision ratchet" anti reverse mechanism...how different are these from the single speed dog design? Alan Tani did say that the single speed LD has the...

  465. Shogunsc4

    40#-50# 'lupe reel choice

    The decision is becoming more difficult... Daiwa STTLD40II is smaller, lighter, smoother, cast better (a must at the lupe). 17# max drag at strike...I would most likely run 14-15#. I have owned a lot of Daiwas and all have served me well. To me Daiwas are more of a performance reel. Downside...
  466. Shogunsc4

    40#-50# 'lupe reel choice

    I am looking to load it up 65# izorline spectra wit ha short 20 yd 50# Izorline XXX. FC leader will be used if needed (very likely). Connection would be albright. Rod to match the reel would be either a GUSA 70XH or Jaws 7604 (rated 40-60).
  467. Shogunsc4

    Avet SX raptor or Shimano Talica 10 II?

    Well, the raptors and the talicas are in the $500 level while the saltist II is roughly around $350. A more fair comparsion would be a saltiga II (if they ever come out)
  468. Shogunsc4

    Tyrnos 10 II

    that a hell of a deal
  469. Shogunsc4

    What to spool an Avet LX 4.1:1 with???

    I'd say 65# spectra and 40# topshot is what the reel is designed for.
  470. Shogunsc4

    What to spool an Avet LX 4.1:1 with???

    I personally think 50# is pushing it for the LX. It will work but will shorten the lifespan of the bearings. This is the reason I am currently looking at the HX.
  471. Shogunsc4

    Do we need another 4/0 reel?

    it depends...if $249 for a baja special then no thanks but it is $129 (IIRC, last year's fred hall price) then hell yes. The baja special is a hell of a reel.
  472. Shogunsc4

    Do we need another 4/0 reel?

    Well put. When Avet first came out, their market was targeted as "accurate-like" at a more affordable price point. The raptors pricing is right up on there with the accurates. I can see the use of MX/LX/JX/HX being raptorized...but an sx?

    40#-50# 'lupe reel choice

    currently I have a Saltiga 40 for 40#, 113HN for 50#, and a JX 6/3 for 40# and 50# depending on the situation....very likely I will end up with the new saltist LD 40 II

    Any advice...3 and 1/2 Day Trip versus 1 and 1/2 Day Trip

    mid July, you guys would probably be chasing albies with rest of the fleet and hit San Martin for the last day of fishing. Usually people behaves better on the longer trip as they are not as "desperate" trying to land their limits in one day.

    fish are still here but more down south. water cool off like 3-4 degrees last weekend but i think it is picking back up again. 1.5-2 day trips are still killing them....it is a matter of finding that golden kelp. good luck!

    most of us fish for fun...some people fish as if their life is at stake...I have been on trips where these fuckers yell and shove people becasue they are fighting a small 3-5 pound yellow. that's why I opted not to go on open party trips...let alone 36+ people on a boat.

    hey bro, it's 50 pounds...okay? this makes me more happy as most of my catch this year has been similar size. I first thought they were all 25-30# fish but after reading this post, I guess all of my fish were all 50-60 pound plus range too. LOL

    Ultra? Good Things?

    just go, Brian will get you on fish. One of the better boat + crew I have fished with. Fishing with 8 is a big plus for WFO tuna bites. I limited out last time I fished with them.

    1.5 day boat

    I agree...Bradley Phillips is one of the best out there. But it is very difficult to find any openings on that boat since it is mainly charters. I haven't seen the String do any 1.5 dayer anyhow. Just some overnighters and mainly longer trips.

    1.5 day boat

    at this time...it is not the matter of which boat is good...it is more like which boat is available to hop onto. The better "typical" 1.5 day boats are the New Lo-An, Pacific Voyager, Ultra, Grande, Pacific Queen, Black Pearl. If you want long range comfort then it is the Searcher, Islander...

    In general, Gamakasu hooks are smaller to comparable Owner hooks. I personally find the Gamakasu 2/0 hooks the perfect hook for flyline sardines on 30#. Everyone has their favorites...You're good to go and go kill 'um. Markus is one of the best in the game.
