So out-of-the blue. A buddy calls me and says hey. My dad's gonna toss. Bunch fishing stuff out he has laying around. Wants to see if u want it. 5 nets, few brand new nice reels, a nice calstar 5ft6in 30-80lb stick like new. 4 old San Diego giant maps, bunch of line, lures, hooks, jigs. Trout and salmon stuff. Haven't went through it all but really like the lil calatar. Reminds me of Ed Colemans albacore rods, short and sweet. Here's few pics. Any info on anything like the rod would be welcomed. I blew up my truck motor yesterday. So trips are gonna be slow fir. Minute. Maybe. Some pics were blurry so couldn't add them. But not bad lil freebie.

    The 5’6” 30-80 is considered a baby boomer right? Or is it same specs as baja boomer? Either way a great yo yo rod for 50lb.

    Those flashers will come in handy if you like targeting halibut.

    Lots rock cod fly jigs. They have 3 hooks but can easily cut one off. My dad and brother use these. I make my own cod jigs out lead. Some pretty cool stuff. I'm more interested in this lil calstar. Its a wc-655h-c 5.5ft 30-80lb bait stick. Is this something still used or is it a collection rod. Or is it still gd to use for something. My buddy Ed Coleman had short lil rods like this he used fir albacore trolling. Usually clipped on rope and clips hanging off back boat or fir tye shorter lines. Was fun using them.

    Its a 5.5 30-80. Med heavy bait stick. According to specs I looked up. I have 2 matching sets of Baja boomer znd boomer junior custom rods. Sold one set I believe the Baja boomer is 80-120 and junior 60-100. Not 100% sure though. I'm still learning from all you guys. Lol

    I just looked up the baby boomer and it’s 30-80 fast action.
    Either way you scored on some stuff that will last you a life time. Glass rods and penn reels take a beating

    Beautiful condition 4/0. That #9 pierless is one little tank that’s for sure. Rad old school little reels. I still fish one on an old silaflex. And have another original white handled #9 new in box. Solid little reels! Great find. Yea that calstar can catch the world. Good grouper rod down south. You can pull on that till your arms fall off! Great gift/blessing! Awesome come up!
