    Intrigued that you still go shorter with the heavier rigs. Is the trend to 7-6 Vipers and Invictus, (?Invicti?) ill-conceived?

    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 should really hit the gym

    They charge you $15.00/outfit. Do they charge to re-spool with fresh line?

    Hi Loc,

    Since it is mainly used on the rail, heavy gear rod length for me is about feel (i.e. how it bends). I really like the feel of the Calstart GF7465 series. With gimbal and tip they are 6'9". I also have a couple of heavy 7' & 7'6" models and they work well, but the 6'5" rods feel better to me. Just a personal preference.

    I use the rail on any fish over 40lbs. I build most of my own rods and put very long forgrips on them.

    I tend to use 2-3 setups 90% of the time. Since fishing plans can change overnight, the key is to be flexible if you want to travel light.

    If your setup with spectra and short top shots, I would consider bringing the below rigs and pack 25-100 lb leaders.
    1. 25-30
    2. 30-40
    3. 40-50
    4. 40-50
    5. 50-60
    6. 80-100
    With six setups, you will be covered 25-100 with multiples in the 30-50 range.

    You can rig up accordingly to recommendations, location, conditions when you get on board. Its also better to fish lighter line on a rig that's a bit too heavy than the other way around IMO.

    The only thing that amazes me more than your reply is the fact three people liked it. Was that supposed to be funny? If so, I didn't get the joke ; in fact, I consider it insulting.

    Doug,


    I am sure Surfgoose was trying to be humerous. I think it takes as much skill to catch fish with unfamiliar gear as it does with all your own toys. Maybe a little more since you don't get to practice any of this stuff at home when you don't have any of your own gear. He might have a point if all you did was reel in kite fish but they really don't count.


    Tight lines!

    For an 8 day in July, I'd bring 25-50# for bait, FlatFall jigging, surface iron jigging, and something with a fast retrieve for wahoo if the boat goes to Alijos.

    Lupe stealth fly line gear is bft stealth fly line gear. For same grade. Bring it dude

    Imo, Capable of fishing 15-130lb line

    Some day light remaining and the boat stops along the coast. Rather then getting in early or what ever. The dude in the pic with a targeted calico taken on a small 2 speed and iron, looks kinda awkward and unbalanced. Would had been more fun on lighter gear

    Small grade ridge tuna and kelp fish are fun on 15-30lb

    1996 first week of July 8 day aboard the Royal Star. 4 days at Alijos. We caught about 35 skin. Fourth of July

    boats got in to them pretty good last July...check out the reports. I know they did on the ridge, and I recall Alijos made it happen for a couple trips...in fact, July and Aug were much better than Sept. But then came sweet October and November :D

    Some years we get quite a few wahoo on the Jarvis July trip; some years not so much. Depends on water temp. Warm water years and the wahoo are around in July. With an El Nino perhaps building as we speak, wahoo are a strong possibility this year.

    Had wahoo for the whole boat first week of August on the AA a couple trips back. Would have tried again, but we went to Guadalupe instead.

    Sorry that you took it wrong, Doug. I would never insult you. Absolutely, fish with whatever gear gives you the most pleasure! And nowadays all of the boats have excellent gear, well maintained, and lots of fresh line. The old days of single speed Senators are lost in the mists of time.
