We fished down by Colonet last weekend. The high spot where they get YT is 113 miles south of San Diego. We got BFT a few miles north of there. 1 1/2 day boats can fish there. They were also getting big 50-80# BFT 30 miles west of San Diego last weekend on private boats. http://www.bdoutdoors.com/forums/threads/5-29-offshore-report-stupid-bft-bite.627204/

I'm planning on these:

Standard jig/bait
1. 25# Avet MXJ / Phenix psw808mh  (live bait)
2. 30# Avet SX Raptor / OC Rods Kaiuli  7mf (live bait)
3. 30# Accurate DX400 / Phenix psw809h (live bait)
4. 40# Penn Fth 25nld2 / Phenix psw700xh (yoyo/bait)
5. 50# Daiwa Saltiga 40ld2 / Phenix phd760xh (yoyo/bait/dropper loop)

Specialized
6. 40# Accurate Valiant 300 / Phenix psw760h  (flat falls/megabaits)
7. 40# Daiwa Lexa 400 / Phenix psw809xhj (megabaits/poppers/stick baits)
8. 50# Shimano TranX / Phenix psw909xhj  (surface iron/poppers)
9. 80# Shimano Saragosa 10000sw / Black Hole Challenger Bank s-801h (poppers/surface iron)

Extra reels:  Fathom 12, Shimano Calcutta TE300, Daiwa Lexa 300, Avet HX Raptor, Penn Battle 6000.

I'm hoping the 25# is only used for making bait!  I'll probably bump the TranX up to 60 or 80# for poppers if we're going for BFT.

My crew checking out the reels. Plus the rods. I don't know what's up with the pictures being rotated or how to correct it. They do look correct if I click on them to see them full size.

Will anyone other than me have a 1:1 gear ratio?
I am bring a couple of fly rods along with me.
I have a few conventional rods too.


 Grin Grin Grin A couple years ago I brought an Ol' Skool Daiwa SLT 20 on a 7' Harnell full roller custom  Grin Damn if it didn't catch near the most fish on the troll. Must have been the harmonics of those old style stuart roller guides sending a vibration thu the line to the fish...Killa  Grin

I ditched the 80# and added a 15# and some small jigs to play with bait I have fun with maks.   I usually use a 40# rod for making bait.

I got 8 spots on the rail...I had to sell off all big stuff 2 years ago for the IRS but did manage to get collecting again. Will be slightly under gunned but will catch some fish.

Rods N Reels

#1: very old skool  Seeker S870-7' 15-40 with my 500 all pimped out with #30 top over #65 braid
#2: 6'6" Tsunami Trophy 30-80 with an Avet MXJ ...#50 braid and #30 top
#3: 7' Tsunami Air Wave braid elite spinner TSAWEB701MHJ with a Penn Conflict 6000 full spool of #50 power pro
#4: 6'6" Seeker G6465 with my mini tank 113H full spool of #50 mono for whatever  Grin
#5: 7' Seeker G670 with Penn Fathom 25N 2 speed with #65 power pro and a #30 top shot for now
#6: Phenix Abyss PSX809 topped with my fathom 15 star drag with a full spool of #50 power pro

#8: 7' Rainshadow 30-80 with an Avet HX 5/2 backed with #80 power pro and a 50yrd #40 top shot


Not sure what I'm going to do with all this, but I do know I'm going to have fun  Grin

You guys crack me up! All you need is a 30# rental rod with a broken rod clamp and a handle that keeps falling off, to catch fish 90 percent of the time. If someone tries to loan you their gear, they're just messing with you, probably the line is cut 150 yards in. Back away slowly and avoid these people at all costs!

I'm torn. My backups are so nice I hate to leave them behind. Super tuned with all the upgrades just sitting there unused. So this year I'm fishing with my backup reels. Not good enough to be top dog, but worthy nonetheless. They need some exercise.
Wai, I don't fish my reels hard enough to need whatever that stuff is. Is that the stuff carbon fiber is glued onto? If it is, then I'm using it. Slowly converting to the dark side. May, or may not be in some of the reels shown off on this years trip. Yup, one to fish with and seven to show off my reel customizing skills.

Nothing wrong with going to the old school backups...just joshing ya about the delrin. After rebuilding two spinners, I got too lazy to reopen my Sealines to ensure all were upgraded with delrin for the undergear and one on the top washer. The installed CF's will have to do.  Tongue
