    New UC RGP Predator 50-100 Rod Question

    Agreed with the comments above, the new Predator is light & sweet and seems like it has a bit more power compared to the older one. I like the new Terminator too but the new Terminator is heavier while rated lower even though it does not feel that way when I pulled on it. I paired both of my...

    United Composites Rods? Who uses them?

    I was supposed to swing by to pick up the new Predator but then ended up with another Makaira 15T and a bunch of Owner ringed hooks. Note to self: “Stop being a tackle ho already “ :shake:

    the marla IV, puerto vallarta - january 23-27, 2020

    Thanks for the report Alan, the “No Tuna, No Chinga” looks good, can’t wait to try her out. Nothing wrong with a couple nice drinks before the trip but I also like to have a nice massage near the lighthouse area (in PV) to get myself amped up before each trip too :spank:.

    Okuma Makaira 15T II SEa on the water

    Me and another friend in the picture caught half of this load of bft using the 15T two days ago on the Aztec. Could have gotten twice as many if it weren't because of the tangles.

    Okuma Makaira 15T II SEa on the water

    "I love my 15T on the Raptor so much I'm having Jake build me an 80 Predator to put another one on" Will not be surprised if it becomes your favorite setup. I fished my new gunmetal color Mak15T paired with a 7'6" Predator which was custom made by Jake about two weeks ago and loved it. Very...

    Watch the Rail at the Lupe

    If I was going to Guadalupe, I would pay a visit to SeaWorld. I would scoop a bottle of water off of the orca’s aquarium and bring it with me to island. Every time I see a great white shark around the boat during the drift, I would pour a few drops of that water down just for entertainment...

    Open spot in Nov.. Constitution

    If you only take a short flight home (like California) then I suggest to get the soft cooler bags from Sam’s Club (PV). The soft cooler bag costs half the price of a hard cooler and weighs probably 1/5 of its cousin. Last year we paid around $40/bag using Alaska Airlines.

    450lbs yellow fin landing on Marlasportfishig

    I don't know how are they going to keep the fish whole unless they cut the trip short and beeline back to port because I don't think any of the ice chests on board are big enough for that humongous yft. Anyway, a big congrats to Roberto and team. :cheers:

    What the heck do people do with Skipjack?

    We prepped yft and skipjack sashimis on two occasions without telling people which is which and the majority of people picked skipjack sashimi as their favorite. Your mileage may vary.

    Rod and reel for 200lb+ bluefin?

    I liked the Makairas a lot. I would go with size 20 and up. I’ve caught a super and a few cows with the Mak50/Invictus, Mak50/2x4 and none takes more than 15 minutes. You can really put the wood to those biggie with the right size gears.

    We liked those bags a lot, they're extremely light compared to the plastic coolers and way cheaper too ($9 vs $53). The bags hold up well for the 3-hour flight to LAX. Good luck on your next trip.
