    Hook size comparison......Help me decide

    I learned from a well known long range veteran that you can use a 1/0- and a 2/0 (chaie brown)for our sardines .. If bait is bigger and using mackerel then you should consider the 3/0 -4/0... I’m using a 1/0 for 40 to 60lb and 2/0 from 60 and above to 100lb..

    Offshore Oceanside 95 7/2-7/4/21 1.5 day

    Fished aboard the Oceanside 95 on 7/2-7/4 , 1.5 day trip .. The boat was full with 32 passengers , Capt Rick announced we would be driving all night and running down the line some 80 + miles down by Ensenada.. On 7/3 we fished a few spots and looked for sign of Bf to none available , so we...

    Tuna hook recommendations

    1/0-2/0 is all you would need for our sardines ... I’d use a larger hook if flylining a mackerel
  451. Buttchaser

    GP 80 Tilefish Jr

    Definitely a 40 lb stick , I’d look at the US80 TILEFISH JR for 30
  452. Buttchaser


    Right now it seems like it’s a 24 hr round the the clock deal ... I’d fish the dark and take breaks throughout the day depending on the action on the deck and what the capt is seeing !!!

    All I was told is to try this” 100lb prototype ” There are many rod that are labeled prototype .. Nothing else was mentioned other than” it’s 100lbs prototype “.
  455. Buttchaser

    80# reel

    I love what my penn reels do for me , can’t complain... I fish all the penn visxs models 12, 16, 20,30, and 50 .. They are tanks .. I also have a Mak 15t , it’s been back and forth for maintenance twice ... last weekend I used a visx20 on 100lb on a uc 100lb prototype rod..

    How Long In Advance Do You Put Line On Reels?

    I always find myself changing out top shots on the boat while heading out , I just can’t find the time before the trip because I just get on trips as the spur of the moment ... I kind of hate it because I often find myself getting to bed late getting rigged up !!
  613. Buttchaser


    yes it’s true , The Terminator is the beast ! The line rating is 30-80 .. I fish this rod on the higher end of the rating depending on what reel I have mounted on it ... I have no problems fishing 60 for flyline for finess fishing or when the fish are deeper in the water column I have no...
