    For you Calico guys

    Nice fish, I had a friend catch one that weighted 11.0 lbs even the next day with a digital scale. I caught a 26 inch in Point Loma years ago. But did'n' t have a scale. There're lots of nice size fish in Coronado islands. They fight harder too.

    Tranx 200 vs Curado 200? Which is better?

    I've got the 12/14 Trinidad handle on my 400TE and it works great. The reel never engages during the cast, it has a counter balance so that does'nt happen. One thing is ya can't back off the star drag all the way when your done fishing. No...

    Power Pro Vs Spiderwire Stealth

    Well, depends what your going to use it for? Power pro has a texture to it. Cuts kelp good. Spiderwire is a smooth line and won't cut the kelp as well but casts nice. They're not all the same. David

    Heavier line than rated for?

    I'd run 50lb braid for backing and 25lb topshot is a nice happy medium. 20lb is perfect for that reel. They have real smooth drags, and are great casting , but not a lot of cranking power so to speak. Nice lite reel. Try a reverse albrite...

    I've got a Saltiga 30T on mine. Great for casting Surface Iron . I don't think a SX raptor will balance out very well. Its a bit too small i would say. The trinidad 16 or 20 also would be nicely balanced.

    Inshore Reels Reviews

    Shimano 200, 300TE Or Luna 103, 203, 253 Curado 200E5, or E7 are nice. Daiwa inshore Coastal 153H are good too. I don't really like the Cardiff, no cranking power. But if your using 12lb should be ok.

    I got a new Saltiga 40 today for $148.73

    Wow great deal, Your going to love that reel.
  337. djd35de

    Need suggestions about a new reel...

    Well with no reel seat that cuts down on options. I think I'd go with the Trinidad 12 or 14 , should be perfect. Good Luck David
  338. djd35de

    Need suggestions about a new reel...

    Does it have a reel seat? Or cork tape? A Saltiga 15 Shimano Calcutta 300 or 400TE Shimano TLD 5 Trinidad 12 or 14 Avet SX kind of over kill for Inshore. But nice for Patty fishing . Thats a great 20lb stick, but running line much heavier then that will bottom it out.

    What brands of Center Consoles are out there?

    Get an older whaler. Outrage 18 Ft or even those funky looking 70s style 21 ft work great. They can last a long time and with a bit of work could be great cheap boat. Some go cheap and just need some cleaning up. Look on Craigs list. You'll have...

    Accurate 600N or Shimano Talica 12

    As far as small screws on side plates. Even worse is those tiny allen heads that strip out easy. Also what I've noticed is the Avets and Accurates get saltwater intrusion very easy. And i rinse my reels out very well and also take them apart after most trips. And if i did'nt do this iam sure...

    Accurate 600N or Shimano Talica 12

    Accurate 600N or Shimano Talica 12

    I think it may take a while. But sooner then later i believe the Talica series reels will be a big hit. Time will tell i guess.
  344. djd35de

    What should I get??

    Thats a Bullshit rating! They rated those reels with half a spool of line. I'd stick with the Luna 253 or go with the Luna 300. With a Carbontex drag upgrade you'll get a legit 16-17lbs of drag with a Full spool of line.

    Casting with Spectra

    Once you get used to spectra, It casts great, just make sure to wind on tight like said prior. If your casting say Iron or jigs. I find that a lob cast works great for distance. If you try to whip it out there like mono thats when you'll get the birdsnest from hell. just a smooth toss will give...

    What are the limits of a standard Calcutta 400?

    I think if your going to run mostly spectra you'de be way better off with a Calcutta TE. They are made for it and much more robustly built. Reels that are made for spectra generally have a forged frame, stronger gears etc... Plus the TE versions...

    talica for throw'n iron?

    You can pretty much do what you'de like with that reel. I generally like a taller reel for surface or YO YO Iron but it may work just fine. I don't think he bought a 400 dollor reel for surface Iron only. But iam sure it'll work no problem.

  480. djd35de

    Should I get a Shimano Curado E5 or E7?

    I've got both, And the E7 makes a 1lb fish feel like a 5lb fish. The E5 makes a 5lb fish feel like a 1lb fish. I like the E5 better. Both sweet reels though.
  481. djd35de

    TN16N vs SA15

    Bigger but not stronger. Under heavy drag you may encounter problems with the Trinidad. Have'nt heard of any with Saltigas yet.
  482. djd35de

    TN16N vs SA15

    If you need a clicker get the Trinidad. The Saltiga is really made for spectra, So if you plan on using spectra with a short topshot go Saltiga hands down. I've got the 30t and SA20 sweet reels. Built like a tank but very refined. You'll love it!

  491. djd35de

    Ideas for best reel Albies -YT etc..

    If your going to get a saltiga for Iron get the 30T. Its 4.9-1 ratio but cranks in like 35 inches per crank plus its tall and narrow so stacking line is easy and POWER to spare. You'll love it. Lots of ways to skin a cat.

    Slugs in the kelp

  495. djd35de

    Saltiga 30 vs Accurate B-870N

    I think for local fishing the 30T will handle pretty much anything around here easy. Plus it will cast Iron or bait just fine. Iam sure that the stock drags put out around 22lbs . Thats plenty plus you could upgrade with Carbontex later. David

    Small reel opinion (acc,trini,newell,saltiga)

    I take it back. I just checked out the Daiwa website and all Saltigas put out 22lbs of drag. From the 15-50 all 22lbs. Thats a hell of alot. You could button down the drag and snap 15 or 20lb test. You could run 65lb spectra if you wanted. I think 50lb would be good though. If your going to use...

  524. djd35de

    Small reel opinion (acc,trini,newell,saltiga)

    That Saltiga can handle anything around here easy. Use spectra with a short topshot it'll handle 30lb no problem. I've got the 30t and got a 20lb yellow that i thought was a Bonie. It was'nt even fair. Its going to take a much bigger fish to put it to the test. I've got a friend that...

    Sometimes i use a Shimano Calcutta rod with a 400TE and 25lb test. Use 20lb test and you lose your jig in the kelp, But 25lb most of the time gets it back. Its real lite and you can chuck a lite iron plenty far, all day long no problem. Granted, it does'nt pull in as much line as a reel with a...
  530. djd35de

    What Do You Think For A 20lb Reel?

    I think out of the reels you mentioned. The mxj is more of a 25-30lb reel. The SX is fine for 20lb. But i think you'll be able to cast a bit further with the Toruim 14 and the Saltist 20. I also think the saltist is better made then the Torium.
  531. djd35de

    Cool, Thanks for the reply. I just got it today from Evil bay. Looks to be in good condition. Its rated for 12-15 pretty narrow range. Iam going to put my old Bantam 100 that I've had since 6th grade. I guess i'll start with 12lb and go from there. David

    Curado 200E7

    Larry, It is the new Curado 200E7. Nice reel, smooth and casts like a dream. Matched with the Crucial that i mentioned is a sweet lite set up. Iam using 30lb spectra filled to the top. Maybe I'll use a piece of Florocarbon at times. Very balanced and ultra sensitive. IM9 Graphite is sweet...

    Curado 200E7

    Thanks for the responses Went with a Crucial CRC-7'6" MH 10-20 Mono or 20-50 Braid Power : MH action : Extra fast. Feels nice and lite yet strong enough,Nice bend under load, wippy but not sloppy. Sweet can't wait to use it. Even the color is a perfect match!

    Curado 200E7

    What stick do you guys recommend for a Curado200E7? Fishing Calicos . Maybe 30lb spectra 3ft of Floro. Thanks

    Curado 200E7

  547. djd35de

    What power handle fits a luna 300?

    I stand corrected, The handle i have is slightly longer and will work for both CVZ 300 and Luna.

    Need advice on a saltiga 20 and Luna 300

    Run them stock until they wear out. Then run Carbontex greased.
  549. djd35de

    What power handle fits a luna 300?

    Second thought, i don't think you want that handle on ebay. No counter balance.
  550. djd35de

    What power handle fits a luna 300?

    I bought one with a counter balance. Works good. Thing is i think people may be a bit confused. Iam not sure, but i think its more of a power knob and not really a longer handle. But its much easier to grip and you can crank on it...
  551. djd35de

    What power handle fits a luna 300?

    Try Anglers Choice, I bought one for a 300 CVZ I'd think it would be the same.

    One note, both 300 and 400 TE use the same drag.
  556. djd35de

    Shimano 300 TE, 400TE Slay Yellowfin!!!

    Yes Ron, Other than the handle the reels are stock, drag, bearing etc... Looking forward to burning the drags and replacing with greased carbontex. As it is the stock drags pull about 16lbs which is plenty. Smooth too, no herky jerky drag.

    "Light" Tuna Reel?

    Remember that rod is a inshore rod. You don't want it to be ass heavy with a oversize reel. You could use an SX but the spool is a bit heavy for casting light stuff. A Calcutta 300 or 400 TE would be perfect. I have this set up and its sweet...
  588. djd35de

    "Light" Tuna Reel?

    I've got a Calcutta heavy action rod. Nice stick. But would'nt put a 30t Saltiga on it as its too heavy for that rod. It would have poor balance. The SX, or Accurate 197 maybe a 400te would work great and all can be used with straight spectra if you wanted.

    I run 50lb spectra and 25lb top shot on my 400TE. I like Berkley Big game. If your going to throw Iron in the kelp then 20lb line won't get your jig back. Wheres 25 will. I also use 50lb spectra with 30lb top shot Berkley high test on my Toruim 16, your 20...
