Any big uns???
30 LB yellowtail. matched with a shimano teramar, 50LB power pro, and a tady 45
Same set up I got a 28# yellow but had 20# fluorocarbon top shot on a Wax Wing.
I've caught some big fish on both my 300 and 400, biggest was about a 60lb BSB
that is a nice fish and looks like a great combo.
what rod is that ?
How about hundreds of YFT with a popper and the 400D?
Bringing this thread back from the dead. Would like to hear a few more success stories. Going to pick up a 300d and a 400d.
The 400 D is an awesome little reel!! Tons of yft the past couple of years on it... Finally getting it serviced after 2 seasons of abuse with no maintenance what so ever!!!
Nice shot there Al !
Just got a 300D + Teramar 80H. hoping it'll be my squid/leadhead setup
It was a great popper reel for me in 2014 & 2015. Tons of the smaller YFT and some nicer Dorado

Nice shot! Looks like you're on a Ranger Bay boat too!
Thanks! It is actually a Skeeter. Both fine boats I'm sure.
Plenty of 20# yellows. Most impressive little reel I've fished. Put a power handle on it and it will hang with anything local.
Power handle makes it a real gem! Easier on ghe hands!! Power handles are from jigging world..
wow I want one... I see it has 50/275, 65/170, 80/140 on braided spool. I see above people use for BFT big Yellowtails. How would you guys approach the spooling for this beast? 50# braid with short top shot of 20-30# fluoro?
I run 50# Maxcuatro on my personal reel with a 30# leader for throwing the small poppers and Colt Snipers.
What rod do you guys fish on the 400d?
I fish phenix black diamond inshore rods with mine... Depends how you want to use the reels... Will be switching gears and start to do slow pitch jigging with them for shallow water rockfish...
What rod are you pairing it up with? Thanks
