    I'll be honest here... I need to work on my sea legs before tackling the longer trips. I've noticed a lot of camaraderie here on BD and I can only look forward to meeting the LR folks in due time. Thanks for the insight into your personal first steps Jason!

    I also do the shorter trips as time allows Jason. Since you are in Orange as well, hit me up if you want to go sometime. I'd be happy to share knowledge.

    Tossing jigs on 30# is a bit dicey.

    I consider 40# to be slumming with jigs.

    Thank you Kevin and I would definitely be up to learn more/polish up. I live near Fairhaven and Yorba.

    Great advice Todd and thank you. This is a prevalent agreement on jigging and I'll bump up it up to 40 for sure.

    That's great for carpooling and thanks again Kevin. I'll try messaging you (first time) with my number.

    As mentioned above IMHO you are already over gunned for 1/2, 3/4 and 1.5 trips. Know what I take on those boats? Daiwa Sealine X-SHA reels and beater Seeker American's/ West Marine Blackfin rods. They will handle anything you will find inshore. Those boats are brutal on your gear, unless you like "boat rash" get some cheap shit for those trips and save your quality gear for more sophisticated outings :) JMO/ YMMV

    I've been doing 1/2 to 1.5 day trips since 1980 and I can tell you all you need is a few basic setups. You have way nicer gear! For me, I just bring three setups on these trips, something similar to:

    Sturdy bass setup- komodo 350 / teramar
    Penn Fathom 12/ tallus blue water
    Penn Fathom 25N/ proteus

    I use the bass setup most of the time!

    Overgunned is definitely the theme I am following too David. I surely went down the rabbit hole... I have to reconsider the heavier end of my gear and plan on making the penns my "daily." I appreciate your thoughts!

    Mrc, thanks for listing your outfits. Basic seems like the way to go and I'll be reevaluating my gear for sure within the next few days. How do you like the action of the proteus? Is that your 30-40lb setup?

    Yep, I use the proteus for my 30-40 bait setup if/when larger fish are around. Also used as a rockfish rig sometimes. I like the proteus action a lot as I like stiffer action rods.

    That is a very capable 4 rods that would be fun and have it covered. I need 7 set ups for a half day but in 4 set ups you would have 98% handled.

    Maybe he'll just cut the line for every tangled and use another set up :-)

    Proteus is on the heavy side on weight......just sold mine and replace it with the lightweight New Okuma PCH Custom Rod for $149 sale with much better components....

    OK, little humor there, but I certainly fall toward the bring it all side. 6 for 1.5 I like a 15lb stick, have to bring a 40# Jig Stick or what's the point and I bring a light triller. As 25/30and 40 and there you are. The tangle comment is the Truth. The 25 and 30 in a hot bite are going to interchangable, re tie, tangle, backlash, you name it. No wasted time while the bite is on and fish are up.

    Whaaaaat? Where did you find Okuma PCH rods on sale for that price?? I've been stalking those rods for MONTHS on every online tackle store and haven't found it on sale at all. Best I've found is regular price with no tax and free shipping.
