    I'm a Calstar guy myself
    20# 900xl
    25# 800ml
    30# 800ml

    The YT in my avatar was on the 800ml on #25 flouro. It surprised me on a day of catching those 18-25# fish. After a huge deep run and some big head shakes, I knew it wasn't the average for the day.

    Is the bait anchovies or sardines? I have different rods for both baits. I have Harnells and Trulines of chovies and Calstars and Sabres for dines.
