Heading out on a 3/4 day this week in the OC and wanted to limit my gear. Looking to bring one set up to fish bass that can also double as a jig stick with a change of leader if needed. Debating between a Tranx 500 and Lexa 400 to primarily through leadheads or squid for bass but use as surface iron rig if needed.

    The Tranx 500 can be used for throwing a Tady 45 to calicoes in and around the kelp. 80lb spectra with a 60 lb short topshot. If the jig hangs up you can rip it out. Yellows too.

    When you come back from the 3/4 day trip, the Tranx 500 will be in someone's backpack.
    The cattle boats up north must have some really rough crowds. I always make friendly with the deckhands (cigarettes, energy drinks, etc) and show them my gear. Just so they can possibly keep an eye out.

    I would bring it. If the yellows show up I would be grabbing it.
