    new to the offshore fishing world and looking to do a 2.5 day trip. Set ups thus far include
    Talica8ii w/ terez 70h
    Tranx400 w/ terez 80h
    Tranx500 w/ terez 70xh
    Hx raptor 3 speed w/ rainshadow 70xxh

    Interested in suggestions regarding any gaps in my gear and line setups for these as well as any other recommendations or pointers. Thanks in advance.

    What time of year? Right now no YFT. Small yellows. Main target BFT. I would have a 40-50 outfit and a 50-60outfit for bait and a hvy 80-100 for the flatfall.Not wide open fishing. Well good luck what boat are you thinking of going on?

    Within the next month or two. So would the setups I currently have satisfy those three ranges or am I missing something?

    Trade the tac 8 for the 12ii and you’ll be set.

    You can fish #30-60 or maybe even #80 on the 12ii and it might be the reel that you’ll end up using 80% of the time. Probably going to be a lot better than having the 8 sit on the rack during the whole trip.

    Might even want to upgrade the Terez H while you’re at it for a solid 40-60 stick. Maybe a 7’ or 7’6 rod rated for 30-80 that would be a good fit for the tac 12ii.

    I ended up picking up a bv2-600 and proteus PRTB76XHF. Still debating a talica 12ii. Any suggestions or advice greatly appreciated.

    Would that bv2-600 setup not satisfy that hole?

    So I’m running 80# mc to approx 15 feet of 80# fluoro on my HX. I was thinking of running 65# mc on the bv2-600 to 50-60 fluoro. Talica 12ii would probably run something similar??

    I read a quote from one of the captains this week is WON,”if it’s got a level wind it’s bass-gear. No bass gear!”.

    I was out there a few days ago. Most fish were hooked on 40lb, a few of us went to 30lb (picky Bluefin) and a couple including the biggest, a 140lb were caught on 50lb.
    These fish were mean knuckle dragers, the people with single speed reels or whippy rods took one to 2 hours to land or loose their fish. People with 2-speeds and a good rod with backbone took 20 to 30 minutes. Longer the fight, more odds of loosing the fish.
    I like your Rainshadow but I'm not familiar with the terez rods, rod needs backbone like the Rainshadow. The Tranx cast crazy good but you will wish you had a two speed if the fish are larger.
    The fish were mostly 70+lb fish on light line, things can change overnight though.

    You must have a set up that can fish 100 or 130 for big flatfalls or sinker rigs for cow BFT.
