I am taking a Fathom 12 this year.  No trolling rig.  I also have 2 Penn spinners.  Work is a four letter word but income is nice to have for a change.  It looks like I will be "working" for 3 or 4 more days.

I am looking for a rod to put a Shimano OCEA Calcutta 300HG reel on and want a Trevala, my problem is no one close stocks them to "feel".  Any suggestions for a rod (Trevala only) for fishing iron?  I will be using it for albacore and a light YT rig for the June LR trip.

Any suggestions on a 6'6" blank if I decide to build another "club" for this?

thats a beautiful reel Lee, I wouldnt mine owning one of those or the OCEA jigger reel


I know you already have your rod, I have a 5.8 XXH trevala and its paired with a calcutta 400TE, I like short rods and this seems to work really nice with the calcutta reel.

good luck with this combo on Cedros

By the way, what rods do you use when fishing salmon on Oregon when using the calcutta 400TE?

Did you use the Trevala on the 5 day?  For what and how did it do?  I want to get something for jigging with the Valiant 300.

No, I could not put my Stickfish built Hercules with MX down.  They work well for albacore.

The reel is capable of a bit over 13# (6kg) of drag but line capacity is small.  I somehow got my hands on a JDM Shimano OCEA Calcutta..... Grin

did you ever used this reel Lee?

I love my calcutta 400TE and this is suposed to be an upgrade from the TE series (JDM Japanese Market)

I picked up a Trevala tfc58mh.  It's a prototype but looks like a factory rod. Should work well for jigging with my bv-300 or even a Calcutta TE300.

Not for salmon Alex but it worked good for bottom fish.

We can fix that :0)


Salmon run and fight in the top 1/3 of the water, bottom fish just pull.
