A 60? When was this released maybe In black?
Is Billy going to be on season 4? Maybe cow tuna trip to PV
That's some great customer service
Suprised its not sold already
Do you really need to see your line under a reel cover? I think there is a guy on here that used to make them custom.
willing to ship? i need heavy line for this year
Shit, how could I forget about Oliver. The Big tuna dreams are real.
Justin Miller, Warbaits, Bryan Timm, western waters, Bigbassdreams!!
There are a lot
What’s was the fish count from last year
Can I get a translator?
My best guess is the bildge
I'm assuming a coast guards 3rds license makes me exempt correct?
MXL Raptor its a beast of a reel from everything from rockfish to tuna. 65# braid filled to the top has more then 500yrds depending on the line
I have both I use the monster for jigs and the 6480 for bait
US monster or a CE monster. The CE has a lighter tip. I have a 900CE and love it for jigs
Will definitely look into it thanks
I'd guess the lighter the better
They are ghosts and most people keep there secrets but find the squid and you will find the wsb. You also want a very parabolic and a light tip....
Ill be heading to Ft Lauderdale late June and am wondering if you guys have any recommendations for 2-3 guys. mainly looking for offshore.
I would definitely add a hook keeper ive seen people use a fly fishing rod guide as one before
Might be a stupid question but why does no one use wire for rigging these. I know cuttoffs are rare but wouldn't wire make cuttoffs almost imposable
Its pretty fucked how much most of those deckhands make. It should be above minimum wage
1x3 or a 2x4 sounds up your alley also UC makes some great rods
They do this alot. Race to PEI is the one that comes to mind
Yea also idk if its a common thing but to get mine down the fastest ill put light tension on the spool when dropping if i don't it feels almost...
The Heavy hitter red crab is my favorite yoyo jig. I caught 15+ rat yellows on it in one day. your arms is going to hurt tho.
Way over powered a avet MXL and a seeker 6480 is my go to for those islands it can handle anything there with ease
They make diesel outboards now. They are really nice. OXE diesel they make 75 threw 300hp
The box looks great other then those latches. They wear out to easy
Totally agree with this or call up your local MEBA hall and they can point you in the right direction
Can't wait to see it in action. Hopefully with some more WSB on the end of it
Look at loop to loop connections. Wind on leaders and what not
Its the sound when they stop is the issue
Don't put your boots in the dryer it fucks up the bearings
Is it going to be Shimano reels in season 3 of Local Knowledge
How would a newell stack up out of question.
I'd bet it's hollow connection or a FG knot
Calicos mainly. You can use them for yellows that are in shallower water. Less weight slower the fall
I'm guessing it's the air supply for the engine
I just bought two the other day and am stoked to used them this year
I'm using a seeker osp 2x4 on mine
Look at Berkeley prospec I got 450yrds of 80# Max quatro on my 600n
I usually send them in for a service but I'm sure they will so just fine out of the box my mxls are bulletproof
Some of those reels can sit for years before being used I get all my reels serviced no matter what brands. I get them serviced and line put on...
I got that black MXL
above and a silver one for the trin 16
Try and get it serviced. There is free servicing for the first 2 years if I remember correctly.
On two speed reels there has to be some backplate due to switching gears.
Fuck yea I love it thank you so much
I think it only applies for rods bought at the show
Dam only if I didn't have to buy a Comercial license I'd come and just pull on fish all day long.
Still that's one hell of a stringer
Thank you for not raping the bottom of the ocean with a trawler. Also if that spot is at the CI that's one hell of a spot.
You can use those little metal bendy cords I forget what they are called but I see them all over the place
I've seen some of the previews and they look amazing. I can't wait to get my hands on them.
If you want to do surgeon and stripers look at predator sportsfishing
Sounds good I'll see you guys there. I'm tired of wearing my work boots on the boat
nice deal too
Aye xtratuf boots on sale or a Diawa TACTICAL SOFT SIDED TACKLE BOX on sale?
I have a 600N with 450yrds of 80# max Quatro and its an amazing yoyo reel id recommend the 600N it's great and it's thin. Its a really versatile...
I got 450 on mine of 80lb max
Downloar fish legal on your phone it says everything from what you can keep where to where you can't fish. Plus you have service at the islands....
Im having issues on the website but not the forums.
If you are going to use braid make sure you have gloves
There are some shops that sell them premade. I've made them before on ships with just rope. All you do is get some thin dia rope make two loops on...
Maybe sent it in for a service. It can't hurt
On that conquest it's like sleeping at home this evening boats are sweet. Look at the back side of Santa Cruz or Rosa if the weather is nice
Such a beautiful rod
I'm ok with that
Its also nice because you dont have to shit on the boat then.
They are saying it might be weak but still there
What about overnights?
are you guys going to more videos on the west coast?
Is it bad that I'm more excited about this then my paycheck
I'd post this on a east coast striper fourm. Bailless reels aren't popular on the west coast neither are spinners
He didn't say anything about sizes just that they are having prostaff testing new reels
I heard that there is going to be a new line out soo. I dont think it will be out by FHS but maybe some teasers
You can get them on here for a decent price or buy new they start pretty low are made in the USA and have the right gear ratios, light and nice drags
Maybe look at the accurate tern
The 130 thread lock is in green? I thought they just made blue and white
Will you ship
Do you still have the 130 thread lock?
I believe saltydogg helped design some of rainshadows rain rods
Yea NVM im used to the single-engine parkers they have alittle more space
Its nice to drag fish threw
Id love to get this box for full day trips up to 3 days. It looks like a sweet little box
Sweet thanks so much
Yea I was going to head down to bay tackle and see if they will let me use the Spooler because I got some braid cheap online
Don't forget this is still a vacation for most and relaxing is a big part of it
I cant wait for his report.
Yea i know it does but still messes with me.
If anyone wants to get rid of some leftover hollow ill pay for shipping
Yea that video really helps. It still makes my head spin that this hollow grabs so tightly
Im looking for smaller sections of hollow core that people aren't using and want to sell. Its mainly going to be used for practicing splicing and...
Sorry your talking about tiring the nail knot where I enter the solid into the hollow or where I pull the solid back out of the braid. I'm kind of...
Do you guys have any guides for splicing these two lines together. I bought a Latch needle and am going to try and get these two to stick...
Jig Sticks are always a must.
look at baston/Alps Products
I use a zippo and have it lit for alittle time to get the metal around the flame hot and then press the leader against it. What i make sure what...
Thats just a pick from online but what i do is i cut it burn it and then hitches over it and Rizzuto to finish.
Yea i used to have that issue then when i finish the FG i make sure to keep doing half hitches to cover the mono again so it is just braid...
Yea I got used to it later in the day. It was also one of my first days using that combo but I would put the mono on. I did because I don't want...
Its really thin and it can make it hard to cast sometimes. I had the 50Lb on a Trinidad and it made casting difficult. Not impossible but not easy
Id go with 65lb it has the same dia as 50Lb PowerPro
Its a smaller diameter braid. Its something like 80# Braid is like 65# in the normal stuff it's pricy but its worth it in my opinion.
Id go with the HX you can use it for late night flat falls for those cow size fish. The Sx will do ok for 40lb but id rather have something like a...
Not only can rods not handle that most people can't either
Also is this at the avet factory
Seeker Black Steel 6480 Ct with an Avet MXL I'm a new guy. I've caught everything from mud marlins to yellows to sturgeon on it. I never leave the...
This is what i use
There is something similar on Mcmaster Carr
How much 30lb did you get on it
Does Cow fishing count?
From seeker Rick is one of the owners
Wait till Fred Hall
Take a flat weight and put in the butt cap and glue it in.
I have a 600N and its something like 52 inches per turn its a yoyo fishers dream. I was actually reeling to fast last time I tried to yoyo on it.
How much 130 can I put on it
Do you think it would be over kill for the local bft
That's only with the 20% off coupon I thought
is that reel alittle to much for the 2x4 I have the 2x4 but I found a sweet deal on the Mak30 for 50$ cheaper then the 20. What would you guys go...
Yea sorry my bad for the SD Numbers for your charters. Im only going to be able to getting one multiday trip in this year so im trying to pick the...
I fish with them alot up north at CISCOs and a good friend of mine knows Frank pretty well. What was last years counts?
Whos the captain for the trip in SD
Honestly, any rod is a rail rod. You just put it on the rail and grind most rods work find for it but i might mess up the cover for them
Have you actually tired a rail rod on the gunnel of your boat some times it just right
Do you have any flatfalls that can be in that straight glow and do you make the spearheads in non glow just straight lead?
Id bet on the ground then or something to do with vibration
Is the reel still for sale?
You want to sell the reels?
I kind of want it for everything that has been going on local and for shorter long range trips
Does work on tuna tho
I've seen a deckhand do this. I spoke with the capt and he said it was the birds fault. That was the last time I fished that boat.
How much 100# do you have on there
Does anyone have this combo? How do you have it rigged and what line do you have on it? I have the 2x4 but im thinking about pulling the trigger...
Received and texted
The rings are mainly used to make fin bait swim better

Look at the Boston Whaler Conquests. They are my dream boats
They really have a great customer service
A seeker/calstar/cousins 6480 and a Penn 25nLD or star drag
I'm like addicted to fishing and this is how I get my fix. Yea I got a week off early March maybe theres some plagics around to chase.
Have you tried it without your bait tank full? Maybe that's the extra weight, But then again your bait capacity is amazing!!!
My bank account hates you guys. See you there
All the students at the Maritime academys are trying to get there licenses and have been working to get them for the past 4 years are being screw...
Also if you do get 2 speeds I fish the G2 at 30 because when fishing 30 your not going to put more then 10# of drag on it and mine fishes 10# no...

will you ship the rod?
No shit Its was my favorite line and now it just got a bit better
Oh trust me i know but im in norcal currently and its a hike down. Im trying to make it to the one in Bakersfield
I dont think Power Pro is made in the USA
Edit: It is
for 30# bait go with a 700M
Do you ship or come up to the bay area??
Im looking for a Seeker OSP 2x4 i don't really care about looks just want it functional.
PM me or Text at 80590126_87
Id go with a Avet JX or a Valiant 500 or 600N I use my 600N for 50#
For rods I wouldn't use the 6480 its more of a 30# rod. I have a Avet MXL on...
No chances are the rest of the pipe is going to fail soon so save your self the headache and just buy a new one
Some people have the theory that shorter rods break fish and longer rods break fisherman. Personally, when I get above 80# I'm using the rail. I...
I thought that was the clicker?
where is the button. I see alot of these reels but ive never held one so ive always wondered
ISE= Internation Sportsman Expo Its fred hall for norcal its pretty fun and alot of companys are...

is it just straight mono?
You can still buy them in stores
willing to ship?
will you ship?
From what I've heard it helps with making bait but other then that I haven't heard much either. I know a few boats use it up here for looking for...
Yea for those monster halibut I could see
Does it come with a cover for the gimble
I have a CE 900 Monster with a trin 16a and i love that setup. I use it for mainly throwing a tady 45 or a starman 112. It loads up great and can...
Ask the younger deckhands to help. I'm sure they will be happy to help.
Personally its also easier for me to retrieve faster then it is to slow my self down reeling.
Personally, i love my MXL for live bait stuff and dropper loop. The thing with those is that when your fishing that low your doing alot of pumping...
Check turners they were having stupid sales on rods last time i was in. also look in the used section you can get steals in there
More torque. Faster gear ratio less torque so when your trying to winch on a fish its harder to turn the handle. This is why 2 speeds are...
The leader isnt long enought that you attack the release clip after all the swivel and what not so its just straight to your mono leader connected...
Yea i totally agree I have a G2 MXL MC 2 speed and someone was talking about why don't I just step up to the raptor. My reasoning is your not...
Use a shipping blanket and staple it down it works great. You dont want to have a ghost flying at you.
What was the ATD6 designed to do. Yo yo or just a light trolling reel
Thats quality services
Dont worry the capt is going to put you guys on fish. Just make sure to bring a rain jacket/windbreaker. Knowing you Ill look forward to a...

Why did it sink?
Wireing is a bitch but if you want to spend the time and money you can do it. Just make sure that your using the correct gage and color code and...
Looks like ill just have to have him wrap it. But lets be honest who wouldnt want him to wrap it
what is on the front grip? It looks like what they have on the OSP's but I want to put it on a custom rod
Its not known for casting light lures but im sure you could do it.
How much line does it hold?
Will you guys be at the international sportsman expo in Sac?
You got to find the keys to the sea chest first
I got one from izor line and I can shake my pliers and side cutters upside down and the don't move at all
Kinda the wrong thread by why does no one use wire for a kite leader
Why does no one use wire?
Yea its in US waters
Talk to friends who are also going on the trip and make sure you guys aren't taking multiple duplicates.
Id go with the 20 and use mono
They also have some at the Oxnard one A pinhead for 130 and a Super Seeker for 250
is there anyway to get a Avet MXL one in black?
What about bait pumps and gaffs
I love my Lexa 400 it's great for those plastics and can catch some big fish.
I put 450yrds of 80lb Maxquatro on a valiant 600n there are no trolling lugs tho
The FG holds its strength a little better and the profile is smaller when using heavy leader and a night main line
How much for the rod?
At&T works out there too
I got an accurate valiant 600N and it has close to 51" per turn so when your burning a jig you don't have to reel as fast. I made the mistake of...
It helps with wind knots i think is the reason
I would totally buy a tern if it was offered in red
I have a CE900 Monster wrapped by Sagedaddy and I absolutely love it!!! I don't leave the dock without it. Its great for throwing irons but I also...
Getting ready for next season I see.:jig:
I know the feeling and its all good just cant wait to get some of these
Any Update on the engraving?
I ment the dia because those CE monsters are thin and i keep having reel sloping issues. Is it just a standard size?
I'll be driving down this Saturday after finals. I think I might treat myself.
What was the heat shrink around the rod?
I have a trini 16 and a mxl that i can see if they are the same size or I can just sketch something up with dimensions
Your turning into to...
I have a Valiant 600N and love it. Nothing can stop that reel
Does accurate make a jigging rod to use with it.
Na its all good Its a playoff how you spelled it.
I haven't pull the trigger on anything yet but I'm thinking about a Accurate Valiant 400 or 300 and idk about the rod yet
Yea i can send you some measurements next week and see i want to be able to use it to connect to a trolling strap
Do you know if any of these will work on a Valiant 600N beacuse i might just by 3
One Avet MXL
They Look bitching tho
How much would one be for a yellowtail engraved on the back shipped to Ventura
Sounds sweet how does a jig look on it. Does it rub the frame of the reel
What kind of engraving can you do
Can you make some that fit inside of those tube baits I find some jigs that work but the hook isn't strong enough.
Any pics of the rods
They do make electric reels but i doubt they cast well
I hope to one day have a chance to fish with Billy
I can send you measurements if you need
Will be waiting for the one for the trinidad and avets. Do you plan on making any for a valiant series? These look sweet
So does AT&T
I'm looking for a light set up to jig I'm not planning on going for tuna but mostly yellowtail and rockfish. I would like to use those thin rods...
What is the gear ratio on the red seglier
I use a Zippo to burn the mono I let the Zippo run for alittle bit and then use the hot windshield to melt the mono
Yea something nice and small for just a surface irons to fit threw I bet you could sell them like hot cakes on here
If you do one for a mxl or a Trinidad 16a let me know
Maxquatro or prospec. I know Eric's tackle carries prospec I just put on 450yrds of 80lb on a valiant 600n
Isn't there also a free 2 year warranty
Yea its alittle bit of a hike but its well worth it
Ask Shawn (Capt) when you get on the boat. He is one of the nicest guys ever and always wants his customers to have a great time.
FML I have finals on that day
Anyway I could buy a mxl early
Hey if you ever looking for a boat hoe let me know
Here is the set ups I brought when I went last week.
CE 900 monster with a trin 20
Valiant 600n rainshadow 89MH
Avet Mxl on a seeker 6480
Just go with the VMC inlines after a hook in the hand you will be changing just like I'm doing
You can buy the clamp from accurate
[MEDIA]Started some of the testing today. The hook I'm using is the VMC 8705 13/0 it looks like a killer yummy hook
It straightened out at about...
I think the ATD was mainly supposed to be Kite/Trolling Reels.
Call them they will tell you what they have
I was on the belle. I had most of the fish on dropperloop but the first 3 were Yoyo fish. It was a fun day out and it was super calm great report
Just booked the trip now we just need 3 more people and the boat is good to go!
The big thing is if they touch a fish and down scream.
MXL is always a great option and they have a left hand
Get rid of it and replace all of the fuel hoses and fuel filters. Also, your fuel pump might need to replace.
Those were the 3 boats on my list what would you put as your first and second pick
Wish I could go out with you guys. I've heard nothing but great things about your boat
Yea I'm always positive. I usually ask them what's working and what they would recommend for leaders and if bait or yoyos have been more...
I have a 600N with 450yrds of 80#
Yea it's already packed
If you do let me know :jig:
Im leaving from the GFs mothers house it might be a quiet car ride down. She said to come back with something with a yellowtail and she will be...
Yea this is what I'm thinking. This is going to be my first trip down into mex water so I'm a noobie.
MXL G2 2 speed / Seeker 6480 Bait/dropper...
Yea im thinking about doing it. What gear would be recommended
does it usually go out with 75 people
Yea I saw that it only worried about the 50 people plus. I'm not some guy to get their cutters out and start snipping. Is it combat fishing or...
what landing is the tribute out of?
The fisherman in me says do it. The broke college student says nope
looks like both of those boats are going to be on 1.5 to 2 days :imdumb:
Im going to be down in palm desert and want to squeak out for a day of fishing. I was thinking about going out of Dana, 22nd or Davys what would...
I am too but once I get around big fish I start to trust my knots less
Usually once I step above 100 I'm using holow or wind one with a Bimini twist to a looped leader
Try the triangle method for the FG. I was bad at it untill trying it that way
The actual breaking strength of braids aren't what they are listed. JB 100lb might break at the same of 80lb Threadlock. I know you do alot of...
I like my Uc CE900 Monster but to each his own. I have a Trini16A and love it with some 50LB MC
Accurate valiant 600n 450yrds of 80lb mc and room for 20ft topshot
I was just busting your chops
Hey not all of us youngins are little shits
2speed and it's a winch
I put a accurate valiant 600N on mine and filled it with 450yrds of 80lb maxquatro
How much would one of those cost
How much would one of those cost?
You sure you got your price right?
What did it look like on the inside
Results should be up before the end of December if not earlier.
You could go to a local shop I'm sure they could do it also. Look for a okuma authorised repair shop
Yea that's my plan. I was going to have it slack until the facture.
Yea we have some dents in the wall of the lab from the same thing. I was going to attach some braid with ducktape or just take off the point of...
Where do you head out for LR trip? I know Okuma has some departments right by most landings.
thanks for the info the cable route will be a lot easier because I won't need to Mill something out.
I was planning on doing the bend because...
I'll take the popper and the small jigs If the price is right
Try taking the reel on the rod and somewhat snug it up then take the butt of the rod and tap it on the ground. It helps me get it just alittle tighter
I was planning on milling out some bar stock to fit each hook and then having the eyes attached with either a pin or by cable. Most likely the pin...
I'm going to have to do a final project for one of the material science classes and I was thinking about looking at the material that hooks are...
If you are worried about line capacity go with Pro Spec or MaxQuatro its stupid how much line you can fit with that stuff
Either on here or on ebay
Wow those a low Prices if i didnt just buy a new rod and reel i would be all over this
Why would someone want a 65ft center console instead of something like a sportsfisher?
I was messing around on the website and saw this. Has anyone used it...
Have you tried sticking a glow stick in the Squid Ive heard that is the magic tip
Does picking them off the beach/harbor count
Yea no redact my comment it would be easier to use a SWR meter.
Will you ship?
Do you have an oscilloscope by any chance? Because you can hook it up to the output of your radio and see if its the radio or the antenna.
Just bought a Rainshadow RCLB 79MH from him and couldn't be happier its a killer rod.
Is the mak still for sale
They are tanks of the reel business
The 16 is a little thinner then the MXL it depends on what kind of line you are using.
Any avet jx raptors?
What line are you using? Mono is a lot easier to cast then Braid. If you try and use 50# max quatro as I tried to your going to hate it.
I'm looking to get a JX raptor Id like it in red, black or gunmetal. I'm up in the bay area right now so if you're not in the bay area I will pay...
Aye if your ever looking for someone to fill in a charter Id love to come along.
What kind of line is one it?
What about a MAK 15
did the mak sell
Do you ship?
If you have never been chased out of a fishing spot by a cop or a crazy homeowner, you have never lived as a teen just trying to get some fish.
You can't go wrong with a UC Monster or a Mega. I have a UC CE900 Monster and have put some hurt on yellowtails and even pulled so hard on a...
No longer looking thanks
I was thinking a Avet LX or a Fathom 30. What do you guys think?
Bring a couple sibikis and some UV flashlights to charge your glow lures.
Any reels for sale?
Personally id go with the Raptor. I have a regular G2 and it holds a stupid amount of 65lb line on it.
Been to there shop super nice guys and I ordered a rod from them it came broken called them up the same day and had is shipped
Tackle Direct. I got a Reel from them that was faulty they had me ship it to get repaired and paid for it all.
How much to ship to the bay area?
Are the colors more red or pink? it looks pink on my screen but it might just be the monitor.
Ive done it where they just bag it and put it in the bait scoop and pass it over.
Yea this is what i was kind of thinking im not planning on going for any tuna above 100lb so what rod would you put on that
I've been looking at getting a new rig. its mainly been looking like a seeker osp 1x3 with a talica 20 on it but I've been second guessing my self...
Ive been hearing great things about the fathoms but ive never given them a shot
How much 80lb is on there I'm planning on using this for trolling
How would this reel be on a OSP 1x3
Are you willing to just sell the mak
They also said its because its steel and not brass. Idk its been good to me and has quieted down.
Yea i freaked me out too i sent it back to get it serviced and what not and was talking with one of the reps in the factory and he said its normal...
Why are you selling it?
They wear in. I had a MXL that was loud as shit and its quieted down now. or maybe i just got used to it.
Would you mind putting a bend in the rainshadow and sending another pic to me.Im looking for a new cow rod.
How do you like the bend in the rod? have you gotten any fish on it?
He probably forgot to reset the counter when spooling you up. Your poor bank account.

I'm looking to get a new set up for trolling the CI and then to bring it down south and mess around with >150lb tuna. I went to a shop and was...
What rod would you guys use for a fathom 40ld I'm looking to fish 80lb braid on it? I was looking at the RCTB66H but I don't know if I should go...
How do you like the rod
I have to do a project for properties of materials Lab and im planning on testing fishing line strength. Ill post later this school semester about...
I use it for trolling and like keeping a clip on it in the rod holder
isnt there ones on the fathoms tho?
are there lugs?
keep it hush guys.
I was thinking about the Fathom Ive heard nothing but great things and have wanted to give penn another shot
probably the 70 or 76

I've seen these knives and they look great and are ridiculously sharp.
I was out with Nathan when we all went out of Dana for that long day of...
Make sure to bridle your bait. If you get lucky and get some life flying fish it will keep it alive alot longer then putting a hook threw it
I'm up in Vallejo 94590
Willing to ship?
You can get some dental floss and put acouple half hitches where you want the depth. It runs threw eyes pretty easy and doesn't damage braid
I have the sufix 832 and I don't really like the feel of the line it feels super flat
Anyone see any squid out there
4 in magnum tubes...
What size anchor can this pull
bass pro sells some that are simular and are used for freshwater. I use the same hookup bait heads and they work actually better a pack is 10 for 5$
Your name suits you

My buddy has a skipjack 25 fisherman with a volvo penta and it thunks when it goes into gear. He thinks its a stretched shifter cable. He has to...
Reel till line is tight then jerk with the rod tip faced down
Should be totally fine. Usually, it's the longer rods that get in the way.
Sounds like you should throw some braid onto the reel under your mono topshot
Honestly I’d like one for my keychain
You can just walk into a tackle shop and they will probably just give it to you
What you can also do is take all the braid off and put mono under the braid
Keep the steel shiny it’s some extra flash
Sold really fast
How much for just the 809
I’ll buy the 809xhf
Can I see a pic of the Phoenix

They listened to us. There was a thread asking what new reel we would want and alot said star drag and they actually did it. Im stoked if i didn't...
Where did they release it? I didnt see anything about it and google isnt showing anything
I'm saying it's a star drag because the width of the side plate that would usually have lever drag bits on it
I'm heading out Wednesday if you can pass on any info that would be amazing. I went out Sunday and the yellows were at yellow banks.
make sure you don't have the tension knob down and also it's going to spin longer if there is line on it compared to not having line on it
Ah sweet I use 40lb mono from izor honestly it's what ever with mono I've never really had a big problem. I know izor stretches alot but with the...
It's also to make sure the mono doesn't cut into the braid or have any sharp edges to mess with the braid
Honestly I've thrown it both ways. Its not going to throw the small jigs amazing but I can Chuck a tady 4/0 a country mile and a 45 just as well....

FishLegal for iPhone
They sell them on there website
I got a United composites CE 900 monster with a Trinidad 16a what line would you recommend I put on this set up?
What jigs in red do u have left
Yea but how’s many yards of braid
I’d go with a avet mxl sizes reel with 65 lb braid
How much braid is on there
Look at wind on leaders there is little to no knots involved
Yea I’d look on here you can get some gear pretty cheap and some landings you can rent that kind of gear
Where is the boat headed if it’s down to tuna town I’d get a 80lb to 100lb depending on how this year turns out
How many people are on the boat
I just use a big tube bait that is used for freshwater. Works just great and a quarter of the price
Should be fucking banned
When are you adding Channel Islands
I’m betting it’s coming out at icast
Willing to ship

What size Trinidad is that
As someone who works around Navy vessles they like there distance. And you want to keep your distance from them. Those ships will not mess around...
You could use a car belt or even a rope. What does the two wheels look like
I'd get some different leader sizes and maybe another set up for throwing irons while using the jx for yoyo fishing
Could I see a pic I'm looking to put the 300 on the same size rod
It's either water in the cylinder or a seized piston. Hopefully it's the cheaper version of those two
How does it look on the rod
What line are you going to put on the 16
How does it sit on a rod and reel
I'll buy some if the price is right
Take both out and use both. See which one feels the best to you
Received my package this week. The weights are great. The box felt like a bunch of lead weights tho. Maybe that's because it is LOL
Sorry I just noticed that it was the two speed. I wanted to get the single. I feel like a dick but I wish you the best with the sale
Do not use a gate valve to throttle use a butterfly or a globe valve. Gate valves may be cheap but they are terrible for throttling because you...

If the set up wasn't so expensive I'd love to get one for my college fishing club that does mainly striper fishing
If you hook a big fish you will hate life. The rail is your friend and on a spinner you can't use the rail and also there isn't a 2nd speed
Yea I am also do they sell pro spec in 60-65 lb
What is the actual breaking strength of pro spec
How much does the 10 hold of 60#
Use it for a calico reel or a bay reel
Yea I’ve been thinking about the tesoro
Hey I just bought a CE 900 monster and am wondering what reel to put on it. It’s mainly going to be used for irons
Looks like a sweet boat for CI
Just stay clear of the navy ships. Also just ships in general. I’m harbors they can’t turn for shit
Looks for the birds. Get a good pair of binoculars and if you want to take someone who’s been fishing CI for all there life give me a pm
Dam I thought your old boat was nice this one looks sick
If you get those little packets out of your jerky that say do not eat put them in your box they are ment to absord water
How would you compare it to a Trinidad
Yea the last reel I ordered online and I hated it I got a lemon and I like holding it before I buy it. I'm thinking about changing the rod now but idk
What is the tip like on this rod
Have been in there once or twice I'll definitely stop in
I'm thinking about just getting the rod and putting reels on it till I like it do you guys know any shops that are around venture that have alot...
Yea I already have a avet mxl mc on my 8ft seeker so I usually use that for big baits and bigger jigs
What do the minnow heads look like
How's casting small baits on it?
They are apparently doing a seeker sponsored trip this month also
Isn't it bacon if I remember correctly
I was thinking some where in between a Trinidad 16 or a 20 what do you guys think. Im going to use it for light jigs and also flyline in the...
This is why on hooks with multiple trebles I fish barbless on the front or a single
How much for the combo
350$ for the 20a
Ever have any interest in wrapping a ce90 monster
The one with the boat guides is perfect I love that so much!! Who wrapped it?
Anyone got and red and black combos that I could steal for my own rod?
Get rid of the Trinidad. Only reason is because I want it. But honestly I'd keep all off then and maybe make one a loaner rod
Yea I'm going to give it a pull
sounds good I'll give them a tug when I get back on the west coast
I'm worried it will be to stiff
Apparently I can also use it at sufix storm vmc and Williamson
Hey I got a 50$ gift card to the rapala website and I was wondering what hooks and other stuff I should buy with it. I fish alot in the channel...
I'm planning on putting at Trinidad 16a on it and using it for irons so I want to stay in the 9 ft range
Yea I'm in-between the us90 series i don't know if I should go with a mega or the monster because I'm up at the channel islands and it's not like...
What is the bend like on that 90 monster I'm looking to get one myself
That's what I've been looking at. What is the bend like in the UC monster
What line is on the 20a

Budget is around Trinidad saltiga range
I’m looking to get a new setup it would be around the 20-30# range and I’d like to be able to mainly throw irons and bait with it. I was thinking...
I saw that boat all day when I volunteer over at the maritime museum. The pictures don’t do it justice it’s one hell of a ride
What's on that avet reel?
I'd like to buy half of them but not all
I would trade out the LEXA for the MXL. That's just my opinion tho. Im assuming you want to use that for Irons and what not. I use my MXL for...
I might be heading out to the islands this weekend any recomendations on spots or stuff that worked
Rod holders maybe? Idk just make sure it can cold that weight. And yea tuna I think are just going to go ballistic or depends on if they die...
Work smarter not harder is what I always say and they have some super small block and tackle that can’t be left In a hold for that one day. I’m...
Maybe a pulley would help you? A block and tackle with a big hook or tail loop could help
Honest I like them because they put up a fight when there is nothing else biting
I just have my mxl on the standard clamp and it hasn't moved a inch.
I wish I could get the solid works or cad files for these jigs. I'd like to play around with them at the CNC at my school
If your looking for sand bass you can go to where the wreck is and throw some swimbaits or if you want to go for bigger things get some cut bait...
Yea LC ive heard work also but if you get Berkley sandworms you will be able to catch some perch on a Carolina rig
I just want to get back to hearing these story’s
Do you have any beat up ones that you would sell at a discount
Im assuming your not looking for largemouth gear

Hey I'll be down in Ventura if you want to sell them for 50$

I have a friend who knows the captain. He goes on the boat and has only said good things about it and there numbers are great
You guys are good dads.
Just pack it on tight when you first put it on and if you break off or dont have any resistance when reeling in your line just put some tension on...
You can ask inside what jigs are working at the time. Diamond jigs always work well and the crew can show you how to "jig" them. The crew is your...
It's not because I know them well it's because I've been in there shoes. It's can be a pain dealing with people especially if it's bad weather or...

Don’t those butts hurt when you stick it in your gut
The bank has be slow as hell this year. how far back in the bay were you?
Your a lucky man to have a back up as either of those too.
