Welcome to our Weekly Specials.

We received some new gear last week, more set to arrive this week. Got another good shipment of Andros reels from Okuma, smaller sized ProGear reels... We finally received more Yo-Zuri and Toro Tamer poppers - the large size lures which sold out in early summer. Nice timing with long range fishing swinging into action. Some nice catches on the longer trips. Our six day departed Sunday, heading for Guadalupe Island aboard the Royal Polaris.* Nice yellowfin tuna fishing there, with some dorado to be had along the way I'm guessing.  At the end of next month our Red Rooster 8 day departs. There are a few openings on that trip that became available due to a cancelation. Great opportunity to enjoy some quality fishing if you can squeeze your schedule and get away with us. The trip had been sold out for some time, unexpected opportunity for a few folks to get on the boat. The Rooster and some other LR boats got into some pretty good wahoo fishing recently. So, if you are on an LR trip better get prepped for the "skins." Take advantage of the Wahoo Rippers and Killer/Pep casting iron. As nice as summer fishing is, fall is the right time for long range trips. Nice to be in warm weather as the boats travel down the Mexican coastline...with eagerly biting fish, and greater odds of an exotic or catch of a lifetime. Can't think of a better way to spend a week or so!

Thank you for visiting our Weekly Specials!  

Great Stuff,
Mark Smith

* Drove down to SD to see the RP charter off Sunday after posting the specials.
WOW! You wouldn't have believed all the wahoo that were stacked up. More wahoo than tuna, it appeared. There were tuna, but the big scores wer on the 'hoo. Seems like the storm down south already began pushing up 'skins.'  Not huge fish, most in the 40-50# range from what I saw, but there were hundreds, literally. At least one boat limited out but from lookiing over the fish it appeared that several boats got into 'em south of Cedros but above the Ridge. Seemed like everyone that wanted to catch wahoo got into 'em. Five day and up trips scored the fish.

Special #1

Okuma Andros Series A 2 Speeds
New Product Introduction - FREE SUPER BRAID SPOOLING!

We've received the full compliment of Andros reels, the 5NII, 5II and 12 AND 12N & 16 size reels.  The previous model Andros 2 speeds were superb, I well know having purchased both the 5 and 5N myself. I fished the crap out of 'em over the past 2 or 3 years, they were my go to reels for their line classes - fishing these for 20-40 lb test lines (40-50 lb braid as backing). The new reels go my own previous generation reels a few steps better, pricing dropped, cosmetics in my mind improved, construction got beefed up a bit, oh, did I mention the price dropped. The first one I bought cost $399...the new ones $319! No buyers remorse here, I love those reels, but no doubt the new versions are even better. The first of this new series to arrive were the 5's, followed shortly after with the 12 and 16 sizes. The 12S - high speed was delayed...for over a year's time. Finally, all models are now available!

NOTE: The Andros 12SII IS NOW AVAILABLE!
And, the 2016 ICAST introduced 12 2 speed NARROW
(only available in high speed S form). Both versions of the 12 are in stock as well as the new 12N in the higher speed (2 speeds).

FROM A CLIENT
Subject:
Okuma Andros reel used on Polaris Supreme 5 day last week
8/8/2013

Hey, thanks for setting me up with a great reel.  It seemed too tiny to do what it did, and did it well.  We were into Bluefin over 60# and it never balked.  I checked the drag each evening and it stayed close, fricking amazing for what looks like a fresh water bass reel.  I fully expected it to fail under the conditions we were in (and with a 50/40 set up getting used hard).  Maybe that company has stepped up design and quality control. Also, thanks for the freebee package you sent to my dad (John Costello).  He caught the #2 and #3 fish on the same reel.

What's New for 2016?
Okuma Metaloid Reels Two New Lefty Options...
and now the 12NII!!

ICAST INTRODUCTION - Here's one we were very excited about, actually a few more than one. In the Metaloid Series there are three sizes, 5 narrow, 5 and 12. The 5II and 12II are now available in lefty form as well as standard right hand retrieve.  The new series offers a rigid 1 piece frame and left sideplate, 6061 T6 Machined aluminum frame and sideplates. The reels are cold forged (not machined - same process as the infamous bike makers $500 models...), type 2 anodized. The spools are made from machined aluminum. They feature a corrosion resistant coating process as well as the anodizing for dealing with saltwater corrosion issues. All reels in the series offer 4 ball bearings and best of all they offer 17-4 grade stainless steel helical cut gears!. The drag system benefits from Cal's drag grease and Carbonite drag washer. All models offer a clicker, and the freespool performance is simply amazing. The price is very aggressive, definitely puts all other manufacturers on notice. There's even more to talk about, handle, arm construction... Bottom line, these are some excellent reels and their price point, their value, construction (my gosh helical gears!) simply sets new standards for the fishing reel market.

At ICAST 2015 Okuma showed off two new color variations to the Metaloid line. These are now in stock for the 5II and 12II - the 5NII is not available in colored form - only black and silver.

Add to all this great stuff one more thing that beats all other manufacturers: THREE YEAR WARRANTY - FROM A REAL COMPANY THAT STANDS BEHIND IT'S PRODUCTS.

Several years ago we introduced our clients to the Makaira series of reels. We were the first one's to discover just how good they were and we took the time to try to educate folks, to erase old prejudices and give 'em a try. We were proved very right. We also explained to folks that Okuma is the sleeping giant in reel production, and to expect great things from them. They have proven their point, and now they are entering a new level of dominance with this series of popularly priced reels. No reel manufacturer is anywhere near this aggressive in terms of value and performance, and three year warranty included...simply amazing.

For 2016 Okuma is producing two Metaloid reels in lefty form, the 5II and the 12II. These are only available in black & silver - no other color options.

For 2017, ICAST introduction, the new 12N II speed is a piece we've wanted to see since we first played with the Metaloid series reels. The 12N is like an Avet JX in terms of size, or a Newell 332 for those with a memory. Perfect size, good line capacity using 50-60# braid as a backing and fishing the piece as your 40-50# needs require.  For what it's worth, the new reels came into our stock the day I came back from our five day Red Rooster charter - 2016. If you watch the video of that trip you'll see one of the guys, probably more than one, fishing the smaller Metaloid 5II for bluefin tuna ranging from about 75-100 lbs. For the 12N, bump that fish weight up a bit, it's a very capable reel, and now two years after it's first introduction we can also say it's a reliable fish catcher that's also a rather incredible value. 12N pictured in black and silver bottom right image.

Penn International - IN SILVER!
2 Speed Reels with fresh cosmetics!

Penn Internationals are the standards by which other trolling reels are measured, and they do more than troll. In Silver finish, they are beautiful!

Over the years Penn Internationals have been upgraded significantly. Certainly there are few if any better heavy duty trolling pieces made, and their drags and freespool performance has been updated to be more in keeping with what we seek for use at the rail for larger grade tuna. They've always been a rich gold in color, great anodizing finish, especially when compared to some offshore produced reels. Well, we have a window of opportunity to add some spice and (in my mind) better cosmetics to the Penn International mix, with new SILVER anodized reels now being made. Can't say how long this will be an option, but you have to admit, the new silver colored reels really bring more pop to the Penn cosmetics. At our shops most folks think they're looking at another manufacturers reels! Beautiful performers, and at least in my opinion, better looking, too!

All International models are being made in silver as well as gold, 12, 16, 30, 50, and if you can wait, we'll have 80's and 130's too!

Special #4

VAN STAAL
VM Spin - Affordable Extravagance
Plus something extra from CharkBait!
Actually 2 something extras...
(Free Rigging
and a Free Rod! This one's a bit of a no brainer...)

The VM Series reel are newer models from Van Staal, introduced a couple years ago, available at a rather amazing value. Never before has Van Staal had a reel this affordable, packed with so much performance. The new machined VM 150 offers both left or right hand retrieve and holds 350 yards of 30# braid, and put out up to 30 pounds of drag stopping power. The fully machined aluminum and stainless steel construction of the VM150 creates more than enough strength to tackle big, exotic fish, and the precision gears and smooth drag performance make it the perfect go-to reel from boat or from shore.

While the new VM 150 & 275 represent a bit of a change from the old Van Staals, it's a reel series with wider appeal given the flexibility of the reels. There's a smoothness to the reel that's going to be more familiar to folks used to the Japanese spinning reels. The handle can switch between left and right hand crank! She's still tight, still great for surf use, but smoother in operation, and having a bail has it's strengths as well. All considered, the VM series reels open up the benefits of owning a Van Staal to more fishermen, and that's a very good thing.

This week we sweeten the pot, with a free Travel Rod for your pleasure
- that's in addition to the Free Braid offer...

OFFSHORE EXPLORER TRAVEL RODS
- for jigging, casting & bait

OFFSHORE EXPLORER 15-25 & 20-40 NANO 4 PIECE TRAVEL ROD

Here's a nifty pair of four piece travel rod made for fishing 15 to 40 lb lines. The new rods feature use of Nano Resins and carbon fiber for durable, high strength fishing success. These new 7 foot  rods travel at only 24 inches in their hard case (with protective soft case, too). Toro Tamer's newest rods are nice casters, made for that application. They belong in your hands rather than a boat's rod holders. But, they do come with gimbals and protective cap should you need to make use of a rod belt or boat's rod holder. (rod pictured has conventional guides - offer is for spinning guide version. Rods come with a hard case.

SURF EXPLORER 4 PIECE TRAVEL ROD

Alternatively, you have a surf option (naturally, we're talking Van Staal's here). The ToroTamer Surf Explorer is also a four piece rod, near nine feet in length. These have been great rods to own for a lot of guys, first introduced almost six years ago. Rods come with a hard case.

 

In case you were wondering, these rods carry a value of $129 to $199 and are well worth the money.
This week, they cost you nothing...except $20 for shipping.

Toro Tamer Wahoo Ripper Jigs
Superior Brass Construction - Super Value 2 Pack Offer

About the lure, the Wahoo Ripper was based on the original Spanyid Raider lure, the original not the copy which is available in the States. The original lure was made from brass, a much more expensive metal than steel and their model numbers (125 & 200) referred to their weight in grams. The new raiders are made of steel, about 20% less weight, and they simply can't match the effectiveness, the faster sink rate, of the brass models. The steel copies also are running darn close to $20 per lure. ToroTamer's lures run a tad less for a more expensive construction, and this week you get an even better opportunity to add a few of these great lures to your tackle box. Lures feature a very sharp, very strong single hook. Great lure in either chrome or gold finish, that's a certainty. This week's offer gets you two lures for a special price. For wahoo, it's a great lure and proven to perform, it will also catch you some tuna and yellowtail - especially in the chrome version.  Brass is Best!

We sold out of these lures in the very popular gold/pink pattern months ago, but now we are up to speed and have a very good opportunity for you. Get two brass Wahoo Rippers one in chrome the other gold both with the popular pink prism finish for a deal that's a super value. With each selection below you'll get two lures, one in chrome and one in gold finish, both with pink prism. You'll be saving a good chunk of change on this offer.

Fishing the lure: These cast like a bullet, for good reason. Longer casts give you more time to entice a bite. You can "fish the slide" but most will try to cover as much water as possible through casting and retrieving. Make use of a reel with high speed gearing. The Cedros from Okuma, #1 special this week covers that well with a 6:1 retrieve rate. Cast the lure out, and allow it to sink - some wait for the lure to reach a 45 degree angle, I'll often count down to 20 and begin a fast retrieve. You don't do much beyond winding, and wind fast! Wind through the bite, don't stop or get fancy, don't pump and wind. Don't do a darn thing beyond staying in front of your fish and winding like the dickens until the 'hoo is gaffed and on the boat!

Please do compare these to the current STEEL Raider jigs which are on the market. They're trying to get about $20 each for those, and they are of a much cheaper production material which won't prove as productive...brass is best, but it's expensive.

The Wahoo pictured left was taken on the Eclipse out of Mission Bay last year. The lures get bit, cast well, drop quickly given brass construction, and hold up over time.

Toro Tamer Poppers
BACK IN STOCK!

Toro Tamer'S Topwater Poppers are BACK in stock! The big one, the 200 MM size sold out at the beginning of summer given the huge bluefin bite we had on the West Coast. Over 1000 of these lures were sold, and they proved VERY effective given their construction. Now, they are back in stock, in time for long range season!

This 2015 new product introduction incorporates some excellent new features. Similar to the CB Poppers we've offered for a few years, these new surface lures improve upon the original design. The head is round rather than triangular, the results are greater splash - especially if you are fishing from a larger boat which is higher to the water line, such as a long range boat out of San Diego. The improved "pop" or splash allows the lure to be worked more effectively. Additionally, the new lures are available in three sizes 200mm (8"), 160mm (6.3") and a new smaller 120mm size (4.8"). The larger sizes have proven very effective for tuna and the new small size will find great success for those fishing from the beach for Rooster fish, stripers and many other species where a slightly smaller and lighter lure proves effective. Lastly, the new lures feature a change in hooks. The two larger size lures incorporate VMC in-line single hooks, the smaller 120 size popper makes use of trebles.

Specifications:
The new poppers are available in three sizes 120, 160 and 200 mm (4.8", 6.3" & 7.9"), with weights of 50, 90 and 150 grams (1.5, 3.2 & 5.3 ounces).

Those are great weights for casting, and the size is wonderful for most fish you'll come across, from little schoolie tuna and tails to some larger fish. There are no better lures out there from any manufacturer in terms of construction and finish. If you don't agree upon seeing these lures, I'll be glad to cover their return - I'm that confident of 'em. They are far nicer than the Braid pieces, nicer than YoZuri's, better weight distribution than anything from any major manufacturer - and they are tough!

Yo-Zuri Bull Pop - Surface Popper
2015 ICAST Introduction

The Bull Pop has been one of Yo-Zuri's most successful lure designs for offshore anglers targeting tuna and other species. The product has gone through some changes over the years, with the Sashimi Popper being the previous, quite expensive, series. At ICAST Yo-Zuri announced that they were getting back to more popular priced lures. Some of the features which added expense were to be scaled back - first among those was the "color change technology" type effect where the lure had one color when looked at from one direction and another from the opposite direction. Nice to play with, but in reality I doubt that the hungry gamefish gave a toot and never would take time to inspect the lure from two different directions. The feature as offered simply added cost, and in the case of the Bonita some anglers felt that the ribbed nature of the color change effect might work against the lure with wahoo - the slicker lure surface aids in allowing a lure to slide through the fish's mouth and gain a hookset. (That was not the case, the lures got bit well and hooksets were not negatively effected.)

Yo-Zuri's Bull Pop lures are available in two sizes, R1154 at six inches (150mm), 2 1/2 ounces (70 grams) and R1155 at eight inches (200mm) and 5 ounce weight (140 gm). The lures still feature stainless steel thru wire construction, makes use of 3X trebles, extra large eyes and retain a bit of the color change technology - but only on the top surface of the lure. A major improvement over the previous design is cost. The previous generation lure was, shall we say a tad too expensive. Now they are quite a bit more realistic in their pricing. The new lures run $29.99 and $19.99.

As of 10/5 we have received all of the larger sized lures and most of the smaller sized lures.

Killer & Pep Jigs
Killer 6X Heavies Return...IN BRASS!!
New Pep 3 and 9 - IN BRASS!!!
New Killer 5 Wahoo Jigs

They're here - and darn effective!!!

YoYo Deep IRON

We've been waiting on these new jigs for a while. The Killer & Pep Jigs in BRASS! Heavy Brass jigs are excellent fish catchers, and brass makes a huge difference in the sink rate. Brass is more dense than what's typically used for heavy iron. Tady used to offer brass #9's, but due to the cost they moved away from the material. Same for the old Raider jigs which are now cheap imitations made from steel.  The Killer & Pep jigs are the real deal, made with superior materials for greater fish catching effectiveness. MADE IN USA

That's what they look like prior to painting. I'm kind of thinking an unpainted polished version with single hooks might be a dandy piece for wahoo... That's something to hope for, too. But for now you've got what will prove to be the best yoyo iron on the market. Compact at a bit over 5 inches in length and over 7 ounces of weight, compare that to the more typical 4-5 ounces for this size iron and you can imagine the benefit in productivity.

The Killer jigs offer traditional shapes, while Pep jigs offers most of their jigs with a uniquely shaped head for added kick (and a couple  models of more traditional shape like the new #9). All swim well, and they are rigged a bit heavier than the light irons from Killer and Pep, made to be fished with heavier lines, 40-50 being most common. Brass is the best material for a heavy jig, no doubt. You can keep the size down to a realistic bait size and get a faster sink rate so that you're on the fish almost immediately. At present the only true brass jigs I'm aware of now are the Killers and the ToroTamer Wahoo rippers, strictly a matter of cost preventing more of this sort of jig to be made available to fishermen. If you fish yoyo iron, you should absolutely grab a few of these. I'm following my own advice and will be stocking up my own tackle box for our fall charters....

 

 

When it comes to deep iron, brass is indeed best! Denser material, faster sink rate, more durable - they'll never crack or break when they hit the deck!

Pep #9 3.5 inches, ~4.5 ounces/129 grams - what a chunk!

Xtra Tuf Boots

They're back! A few years ago (2012) Honeywell purchased Xtra Tuf and took production overseas. We weren't too keen on that idea, and frankly - as we clearly stated on our site - quality suffered. We let folks know, and we searched out alternatives of good quality. We in the fishing side of footwear were not alone, the folks up in Alaska had the same issue, and up there these are what folks wear rather than sneakers or flipity flops! XT boots are/have been what the deckhands wear and what most anglers also wanted... but the Chinese quality was inferior and guys were only getting a few months use our of their boots! In 2014 the Xtra Tuff folks told us that their quality was back to USA produced standards. When they moved from the USA they took all the production equipment, materials didn't change. What the heck was the issue?  Seems it was training of workers, not material. That can be fixed...with time. We de-emphasized the line upon hearing of deckhand complaints in 2012/13, searching out other very good products. We kept stock of XT boots (even when they were really "sort-of-tuff" rather than Xtra Tuff). We brought in the boots in low quantities and took a wait and see approach. At this point, 2016, we're confident that Xtra Tuff is back in the game with an excellent product. In fact we've expanded our selection of their boots to include two new series from the manufacturer, a shorty and a flat sole boot (both in blue). Deckhands like the new product, Alaskans like the new product, and we do too. My own old XT boots are over 10 years old, and I've taken a fair amount of ribbing these past three years given their beaten and torn up appearance. I bought a new pair myself - but this time went with the shorty flat soled version. These are a very good option for guys with cankles - er, rather thick ankles and calves.

XTRA TUFF LEGACY 12" DECKBOOTS

Extra Tuf Legacy boots ARE the choice of many long rangers. They run about a half size large, accommodating insole inserts which we sell.  With the insert, comfort is on a high plane.  Xtra Tuf produce a good, likely the best, work boot. These are the one's the deckhands wear, no greater testament than that for long range fishing. They're excellent products, and will last a long, long time.  For our clients with wet climates, you'll get a double dose of use from these finely crafted products. While the Legacy boots were originally made for agriculture use, dairy industry primarily, they are the standard among our San Diego based long range deckhands and skippers. (msrp $119.99)

One point, XT boots run 1/2 size large. In the past we'd suggest folks buying an insert/insole to absorb that 1/2 size. No 1/2 sizes offered by the manufacturer. XT boots are still about 1/2 size large, but now they do come with an insert/insole that provides a nice cushion. In the past I used a size 11 boot and an insert. Alternatively I could have used a size 10 and that was also comfortable on my feet with no insert. Now, with the new production which comes with an insert I bought a size 11 and it's perfect right out of the box.  For you guys who are 1/2 sized, I'd suggest buying the larger size and then buying an insert from a local drug or general store IF NEEDED rather than downsizing your boot.

Blue Flat Soled Full Rubber 12" Deck Boots

The new blue 12" high flat sole deckboots from XtraTuff offer a lighter weight boot that's very comfortable. They feature the same XTRATUF slip resistant Chevron outsole that's used on the Legacy boots. The 12" height provides the perfect amount of coverage to protect you against the elements, no need to fold these boots down (which is customary on the Legacy boots. Very comfortable and relatively light, tennis shoe type sold for comfort and sure grip - no heal. (msrp $94.99)

Alaskan Sneaker - Full Rubber 6" Deck Boot

The Alaska Sneaker style shorty 6 " ankle boot is a great alternative to a more traditional deckboot. No need to fold these down, they're cooler - and that makes sense for our warm water Mexico trips on the Long Range fleet. Also, over the years we've had many clients who are BIG guys, and they had some difficulty wearing a deckboot. They had one heck of a time getting their feet into the relatively small opening of the boot, and their ankles and calves were too big to fit comfortably in a 12" high boot. So, they'd be stuck wearing sneakers (they get wet and very uncomfortable) or flip flops (NOT RECOMMENDED if you value your toes). This style deck-shoe is the perfect answer for the bubbas, and frankly for me too. Like I said they are cooler, and they take a lot less space in my duffle bag than the regular boot. I also like the flat sole more than a healed sole. Easy on and easy off with the tabs and the kick-off on the back of the heals. That's my personal take, I like 'em and your feet will, too. (msrp $79.99)
