2/8/2016
Welcome to our Weekly Specials. We received another new Pro Gear model this past week, with the Vengeance 30 arriving to complement the 40 and 50 models received the prior week. Nice size, nice line of star drag reels to round out our offerings. Other reels highlighted this week include the newest batch from Truth - and I must say they are getting better with each production. The little SG's and larger LG's are more refined, smoother, and more capable than ever. Avet Raptors and new Penn Clash spinners round out the reels this week. We have two excellent lure deals for you, call it a clearance or inventory reduction to gain space at the warehouse.  Call it whatever you want, it's a darn good deal. Gill Deckboots, long range chaffing springs and Eagle Claw's heavy duty ringed hooks complement the offers along with a very effective lure - one that might serve you very well if you are heading down fish the cow tuna. Seems jigging at night has been turning the trick for those going to PV, a couple Top Banana lures should be in your bag...

Thank you for visiting our Weekly Specials!  

Great Stuff,
Mark Smith

ProGear!
Gone for a Decade, Now Back and Better Than EVER!

ProGear made quite a name for themselves in the '90's and early 2000's before leaving the market. Their driving force, Ishi moved on. But, now he's back, the factory is pumping out reels and they are indeed better than ever.

ProGear earned their reputation by taking standard Penn designs and upgrading them...profoundly upgrading 'em. They'd take a little Squider and stick in 4/0 sized drags, beef up the construction, make use of machined aluminum over bakelite type sideplates and less expensive parts. The old PG's were brutes, and all this was really before the super braided lines came into play. The concept of catching big fish on smaller gear, well PG had as much to do with that idea as any other manufacturer. Because the reels spun so well, they were widely favored by the jig tossers. But, I have to say most of their sales were in the larger 4/0 sized reels rather than the smaller models. The whole fishing landscape has changed, what we now fish 40-50# line on is equivalent to what we used to fish 15-20# on. ProGear's new production takes fishing line's evolution into account. Their sizes are much more sensible, given use of a line material as a backing that's 1/3 the diameter of mono.

The first two reels we're introducing are the Vengeance 50 and 40, and as you might have guessed most folks will fish 'em at 50 and 40 lb.  The reels are star drags, not levers. And that's one reason why I was so high on bringing 'em to your attention. There are times a star drag is preferred, and times a lever has advantages. Seems like most manufacturers have forgotten the star drag. You can button down a star drag without adversely effecting the reel's performance or long term reliability. These are single speed pieces, can't do 2 speed on a star drag reel. But, the casting is exceptional, great casting even at high drag settings. And, these will turn a good 25 lbs of drag, more than enough to fish 60# line on if that's your plan. Size-wise, the 40 is about the size of an old Newell 332 or Avet JX. The 50 is just a tad wider, not nearly as wide as an Avet LX or Newell 338. In mono terms I think we're looking at 350 yds of 30 as a benchmark for the 50 size and probably 60 yards less on the 40. In today's world, I'd say load up 300 yds of 50# braid as a backing, top off with 100-120 yds of 40# mono for the 40. For the 50, you can make a good case to bump up to 60 for the backing and top with 40-50. Again, you have up to 25 lbs of drag to play with, so you'll be fishing conservatively. And, oh how they spin... These are some great casting reels!!!

The gears are made from stainless steel, in the old days brass was used for the main gear. Stainless is the better material. Reels are available in either silver or black - both look great. The Vengeance 40 and 50 make use of carbon fiber drags of course, a 5 stack, oversized. Gears are oversized, at 5.2:1 ratio, 39 inches per crank on the retrieve. Four bearings in the design of the reels, not bushings, and the bearing quality is excellent. ProGear reels also make use of both dogs AND a one way anti-reverse bearing. When dogs are used, there is an associated sound. That's a good thing in our opinion. The alternative is silence, and an AR system that will indeed fail at some point as the bearing goes bad. That's a bad thing, use of dogs provides the back up needed, it's more conservative and more reliable. Pricing is very reasonable at $249 for either model.

Two new models have been added to the Pro Gear line, and are now coming into inventory. The 20 and 30 are the smallest PG reels. Like the 40 and 50 they share the same sideplates and components, the frame is simply narrower on the 20. Like the 40/50 the difference in width is small. We have received the 30, the 20 should be arriving soon. The gear ratio increases on the two smaller reels, so their line retrieve is actually the same as their larger brothers. Similarly, the drag numbers are the same for both sizes of reel. The images below contrast the size of the Pro Gear Vengeance 30 and 50.

AVET Raptors!

UP to 300 yards Super Braid - Including Hollow Core FREE
or Free Aluminum Rod Belt!

Your Pick: SPECTRA/BRAID - INCLUDING 16 STRAND TORO TAMER SPLICEABLE HOLLOW CORE,
or ROD BELT

You choose either FREE offer. Receive either the Premium rod belt as pictured,  or superior quality Super Braid (gel spun polyethelyne line) spooling with mono topshot (if desired) at no additional charge. Both offers represent a value of up to $80, and both are excellent.
 

Raptors are a more refined, and higher drag capacity series of reels from Avet. These take their whole game up one notch, providing truly big fish capable reels in compact sizes. Their machining is better, their operation better, and their drag capacity much greater than their size would suggest. There is less side load on the bearings as a result of increased drag capacity. Casting is flawless, and all models with the exception of the HX Wide Raptor come with Avet's super performing Magnetic Cast control. They are the best this innovative manufacturer produces, and they are made to outperform all other reels on the market.

MXL Raptor pictured below.


 

Pictured below, the powerful and compact Avet JX Raptor.

Pictured above left, the JX Raptor. Drag the mouse over the image to change view. Pictured above right are three models of Raptor, the little SX, MX, JX/LX and the HX. All Raptors feature dual drags, magnetic cast control (with the exception of the wide), ratcheting lever, extended handle length  and extended line capacity compared to the standard models.

The newest and smallest Raptor is the tiny SXJ. The SXJ Raptor has all the features you'd expect from a member of the Raptor family, dual drag power (on one side of spool), two speeds, magnetic cast control, excellent casting characteristics and high drag capability. For the Raptor version of the SXJ, Avet added a reel clamp to the Raptor, the standard SXJ does not come with the clamp (that's the only model in Avet's line without a reel clamp).

Truth Reels
They're here...
and better than ever!

TRUTH SG (small game) & LG (large game) Reels

The new Truth (formerly Release) are a predictable progression of quality from a very good USA factory. We've seen subtle enhancements with each production run over the past 3 or 4 years, it seems. The folks listen to their clients. This summer they went several steps further, new name, and an even better product. Chief improvements, a better anti-reverse bearing on all sizes, strike position on the SG's. They will also be coming to market with a new star drag reel in the coming weeks.

Truth reels are unique, showing the innovative spirit of their designers and their attention to quality. Their first and smallest reel is the SG. This little powerhouse packs a punch turning up to 28 pounds of drag! It's certainly made for fishing the new super braided lines, holding 500 yards of 50# or 400 yds of 60-65# braid. Some will go 300 yds of 50 and top off with a topshot of 100 yds or more, a nice configuration where a lot of casting is called for. Their drag element is made from carbon fiber, "wet" drag for smoothness of operation. The reels feature BOCA BEARINGS, ceramic bearings with rubber seals on the spool and stainless bearings with stainless steel shields for the rest of the 7 bearings used on these fine reels. Oh, I should note that these are high quality bearings ABEC 5 class, not your basic cheap Chinese bearings that are prone to failure. The reels are light in weight, coming in at 13.5 ounces (12 oz w/o arm), and they feature quick but powerful 6:1 gearing.

At ICAST in July 2013 Release previewed their LG (large game) reel. Similar overall design, gear ratio, and features. The primary difference is line capacity, with the larger reel holding up to 500 yds of 80# Braid and turning up to 40 lbs of drag.

There are some unique characteristics present on these reels well worth drawing your attention to before purchase, so you'll understand their approach. First off, if you are a spool spinner you will note that the reels spool does not demonstrate long freespool when you first break it out of the box. That's not a function of crappy bearings or design, that's a function of the lubrication within the bearings. Within a VERY short time you'll note that these things spin like tops, and keep on spinning. They must be broken in, some of the lubrication will spread and ease out, allowing better freespool. I'm sure Alan Tani will offer an immediate fix for this should it be something someone would want, or you can simply clean the bearing of some of the lubrication. For my taste, I'll just fish the reel and allow nature to take it's course. With the bearings supplied, trust that the reel will spin very well and cast exceptionally. There are some nice machining features you'll note, the frame for instance is "bowed" meaning there's more clearance should you not level your line properly in the excitement of reeling in a good fish. The reel foot is uniquely wonderful in my opinion, it's very much knurled/contoured - not a flat piece of aluminum - so it provides a much better fit on most rods as it contours around the reel seat smoothly. You'll also note that the reel does not appear to be ported for water drainage. Well, that's not quite so, actually the entire gear case provides drainage without vacuum with adequate clearance running it's entire length at the base. Uniquely the preset has click stops, detents throughout its range. For 2016 (current) production, all reels now feature a strike position on the lever - nice! The gears are made from Stainless Steel, and they too will wear and become even smoother over time. ***For 2015 Release updated the LG series reels to include a strike button! That's good news for many of us. The SG also incorporates the button - all reels under the Truth name have this feature.

Release reels carry a LIFETIME WARRANTY, that's another unique feature in the fishing industry. They will handle any fishing related product failure for a $20 bill - to cover return shipping and insurance. Product failure is not an option.

The SG - Small Game reel is now everything we'd hoped for. Many upgrades from the first production, much more refined, nicer machining...all the things you'd expect from a company committed to bringing fishermen excellent tools for better fishing.
The LG above, great reel for both private boat trolling, jigging and casting.

PENN CLASH!
ICAST 2015 BEST NEW SALTWATER REEL AWARD WINNER!

300 Yards FREE BRAID

Get 300 yards of top quality Gel Spun Braid Spooling at no extra charge with these innovative reels.

Again in 2015 Penn took home the best new saltwater reel award at the New Tackle Showcase from ICAST. Penn also received the award in the previous show for their Spinfisher V series. The new Clash is a bit different than the Spinfishers. You can say it's a bit more refined, lighter, and offers those seeking a light weight HIGH use reel a new option which is sure to please. Frankly, I think the Spinfisher may hold merit for those of us fishing offshore for larger grade fish, drag specs are higher, heavier reels. The Clash is more refined, has a smoother/nicer feel, quite light in weight by comparison to the Spinfisher V.

The Clash reels feature a new design from Penn. Nine sealed bearings, full metal body, thick oversized bait wire, slow oscillation system of line laying which will result in better line management. It's made to fish braid, line capacity rings, non-slip spool, etc. The reel features Penn's CNC Dura-Gear technology which offers a more durable and longer lasting gear set. Of course carbon fiber HT-100's are used for the drag washers, instant anti-reverse, and more. You really need to feel the reel to appreciate it's refinement. I think that's the right term to use when comparing the Clash to the Spinfisher. The Spinfisher offers more brute power, the Clash is the smoother performing cousin. Reels are both right and left hand retrieve compatible.

They are well proven performers, based upon the shibuki style lure which established a rather high price of $50. There are similar models offered from a couple sources now, OTI now selling the Maguroni version at a higher price than these lures were offered ($15). Toro Tamer's warehouse is not large, about 1400 sq feet and they have a couple new projects in the works and frankly need space for incoming gear. So, it's time to clear the shelves. We're putting this lure on special, a bit of a quantity break for folks. You'll get one of each color, eight lures. Regular price would put that at $120,

SPECIAL PRICE is $50 for EIGHT LURES.

These swimming lures are great casters, with some heft to them and a unique internal magnetic weight transfer  system that aids in the cast and provides a sonic attraction as well.  They are thru-wired for extra strength. The lures are 80 grams (~3 ounces) in weight and 20 cm long (7.9"). They will dive up to 2 meters ~ 6 feet and are rated for a 50 kg (100#) breaking strength. You'll note the quality of construction upon inspection, and we encourage you to compare these lures to any on the market.

Subsurface Swimmers lures have taken tuna, lots of tuna, some big ones during our evaluation stage a few years back, as well as yellowtail and many other species of fish. They will also surprise you with their ability to troll effectively, partially as a result of the stabilizing dorsal fin. While they were designed for big fish, they'll prove very effective on smaller fish - with some of our local guys using them to great effect on BIG calico bass. The lures are very well overbuilt.

Unrigged lures ordered from this page will come with 3 300#+ test rings. Click on the image to examine more closely.

Note the magnetic weight transfer system with rear pad  at the tail to prevent cracking of lure, and the balancing weight rear. Of course the lures are properly thru wired and can well handle over 100# of stress, meaning there is NO issue dealing with larger grade tuna and
appropriately HIGH drag settings.


Shown top, Mustad Hoodlum 4X ringed and below, 7982HX double tuna hooks

Please note, this offer includes the unrigged versions of this popular design.

Unrigged lures come with the same heavy 200+lb. split rings.

8 LURES, 1 each pattern $50

Toro Tamer ® Inshore/Surf Diver Minnows
Sizes for inshore fishing - CLEARANCE!

Back to making space at Toro's warehouse... Save $2 per lure! These are excellent inshore lures, well made and a good value. We're making that value even stronger, putting these wonderful little lures on clearance.

Inshore fishing is a blast, and it's accessible to most fishermen who travel to the coast...or are lucky enough to live there! No boat required to catch plenty of fish from the shore, and hitting the harbors and bays brings even more options. Not impossible to have those 100 fish days fishing the surf zone or watching the tides to maximize your returns. Surf fishing is something that does not demand a whole lot of preparation for, it gets back to the basics of fishing, and it can be enjoyed by everyone in the family. And, in many cases saltwater gear made for inshore fishing also works quite well in freshwater (given corrosion and conditions, saltwater designed gear can work in freshwater, but it's not necessarily a great idea to use freshwater gear in the salt...).  Darn good way to spend some time by the beach, and if you want to get more serious about...well, the returns are there to justify the time spent - for sure!

These well made lures are made for this specific style of fishing. The lures are all internally weighted with a weight transfer system, all have internal rattles to attract fish in water with less than perfect visibility. All the lures feature saltwater safe hooks, and are available in both deep diver and shallow diver forms. We have three sizes in the new Inshore/Surf lineup, 60mm, 75mm and 90mm (about 2.5", 3", 3.5"), and weight runs 6 gm, 10 gm, 16gm (.21 oz, .35 oz., .6 oz). You won't find prettier lures on the market, every detail is correct, and they swim predictably well. All lures are floating divers, and they will get bit...repeatedly.

These are very good quality, durable lures, designed to hold up through many fish. Please do compare these to other popular brands, and you'll see the value is quite apparent. Look at Yo-Zuri's and Rapala's inshore lures, Lucky Craft and others. These are well produced, lures of extraordinary value and they'll catch fish just as well...if not better for about 50% the price of the other guys.

GILL/Respect the Elements
Designed from the deck up for marine use!

Gill is a European owned firm, well established in the marine industry. The folks spending time on "rag-boats" well know 'em. They manufacture many ultra-technical marine clothing items, primarily for the racing and cruising sailor, but they also serve the power boating and fishing community. They've been around many years and supply some excellent products, a wide range of marine oriented products. Their boots are a very good example, and much welcomed addition to our offerings here at CharkBait. I think the most important point here is that Gill products are designed first for marine applications, unlike some of the other products that we have "borrowed" from other fields, such as Xtra-Tuff boots which were really designed for the dairy industry, thus the lug soles and heels.

(Background: once Xtra-Tuff moved production overseas we began hearing some grumbling by folks, saying that their quality went downhill. While the new owners took the production to China, the price did not decrease, it actually went up. We were told the quality would be maintained, and even improved from when they were manufactured in the state of Washington. Then the negative reports began, and our primary source for the boots said to heck with 'em since they were getting the returns due to problems with seams coming apart. So, necessity indicated we needed to look beyond what was the "norm" aboard the long range boats out here in SoCal. We did our homework, talked with some guys who were wearing the GILL boots aboard some charters we ran, folks using their products. Based upon positive feedback we then approached Gill at ICAST 2013 and added them to our line-up.
Now it's a few years later, and I'd say XtraTuff has gotten back to producing a good long wearing boot. But, their price has increased. Those that discovered the Gill alternative have not been disappointed, they offer very good comfort, reasonable price and long wear.)
 

Being a European based firm, their sizing is based on Euro standards...and that's a good thing, too. In the past all boots were made in full sizes, no half size offerings. With Gill, there is a half size option for some of the boots offered. Here's what I've noticed about these boots, in comparison to some others we've sold in the past (including Xtra-Tuff). The boots feature 100% ALL RUBBER compound construction, and its a better grade than most that I've come across. The material is a bit thicker, and will wear better and prove longer lasting. The soles feature a micro-razor cut sole pattern and a larger grip section on the outside and inside of the toe and heel respectively, great for providing secure footing, better than lugs on a wet deck. These boots come with a removable insole insert, that's not an added expense. So, you have greater cushion, and if you feel the boots are a bit tight on your arch you can always remove that and get a thinner insole and make more room. Sizing is far more accurate than other boots we've come across. For instance, I wear a size 11 tennis shoe, but with the XtraTuff boot a size 10 would work for me. With these boots, the size 11 was appropriate, even a tad roomy at the toe but snug on the sides...and there's even a 10 1/2 available!!! So, their size is more consistent with your true shoe size than the agricultural boots we've been using over the past years. These boots have a quick dry polyester lining for added comfort. They're calf high, and a bit tighter at the calf than an Xtra-Tuff. I don't see a need to fold these down, as I would with the higher XT boot. You'll also like the fact that these boots do not arrive with a slimy oily coating like the XT boots. Not sure of the reasoning behind the oil coating of the XT's, but thankfully these don't have that issue and their rubber material is a few mils thicker for longer wear. The Gill boots are not especially wide, they are an average width boot, and in my estimation their size is consistent with a tennis shoe.

Caveat, if you have THICK ankles (call 'em cankles) you may have difficulty with these boots. Chances are you'd run into difficulty with other boots fit too.  If you are closer to average size at the ankle or calf, you will like these boots. And, these will last you longer than the alternatives that have been on the market. Secondly, these are an average width boot, they are not available in extra wide or EEE sizes.

Mark,
I received my Gill deck boots yesterday and wore them indoors for a couple of hours. They are great! I have size 14EE/EEEE gunboats and they fit perfectly with a pair of crew socks. Thanks for recommending that I wait for your evaluation of the Gills before you filled my order. I will tell anyone considering deck boots to try them.
Also, your comment on the traction of razor-cut soles versus lug soles is true. Lugs don’t have as much area in contact with the deck compared to the soles of the Gills.

Thanks again,
 Robert
Redding CA -----

And, a follow up from Robert a year later...:
I just came off of a 5-day to Cedros and wore sneakers the first day and my Gill’s the rest of the time. I’m really pleased with the boots; great traction, not too hot, good fit, and most of all my feet weren’t killing me with all of the time on deck. Sure, my dogs were tired at the end of the day, but they would be no matter what I wore. (My brother-in-law wore his all week with no negative reports from him.) Thanks again!

CharkBait - Chaffing Springs

Chaffing springs are a very useful item, they help prevent line damage when your leader or other line comes in contact with metal. It reduces the chance of a break-off, simplifies rigging, and is a basic necessity when rigging up trolling lures or fishing heavier lines with bait for larger grade fish. If you are rigging up some lures, you need 'em. And, if you are heading out on a long range trip targeting the BIG TUNA, you'll absolutely need some for use securing your hooks to your line/leader. A crimp connection will prove far less bulky and restrictive than use of the typical heavy San Diego knot for rigging a hook bait. They have become a basic long range rigging necessity. Over the past several years they've become more and more hard to find. Sevenstrand used to offer 'em, then when they were purchased by Pure Fishing the product disappeared. That left us with the old, bulky, plastic type springs which were a bit of overkill in terms of size and not as nice to work with. Our springs are made from stainless steel, for long term durability. Frankly, I will use these over and over, have some in my long range bag that I've used for years now. We sell these 10/pack at $1.99.

Eagle Claw 619 Ringed TroKar Hooks

Eagle Claws best hooks, the TroKar hooks are designed and forged in America. TroKar hooks are the fist surgically sharpened hooks in the world. They provide faster, deeper, surer penetration - and that's a proven fact. The surgically sharpened technology and species specific designs add a new level of performance to the art of big game fishing. 50% faster, surer penetration with half as much force as competitors hooks. That's Eagle Claw's claim, and I think they can back it up. These hooks took Best New Product award at ICAST last year. The pricing had been thru the roof, that was the reason we didn't bring 'em in initially. Well, we have a better price to work with now, far more competitive, and now the TroKar is a reasonable alternative both in terms of quality and price to Gamakatsu, Owner, QuickRig and Mustad. And, it should be mentioned again, these are made in USA.
Eagle Claw TroKar hooks were created by a team of engineers from Eagle Claw who partnered up with people who create high tech surgical needles. That partnership resulted in some creative thinking, and the unique hook design that distinguishes Eagle Claw TroKar hooks - a geometric triangular point made to penetrate faster and easier, twice as fast as any other hook on the market. This improves strike to hookup ratios, and your odds of catching more fish. Those are the manufacturer's points. What concerns us is real world, fisherman based feedback on the hooks, long range skippers opinions. Still Owner owns the lions share of the LR business, with Mustad coming on strong with their 4X hooks. Feedback looks to place the TroKars in that same circle of success. They are a very good hook. Certainly they are premium in terms of construction and price, but as is our nature, we're doing our part to bring the costs into line for our clients. Regular price on TroKar offshore hooks run about $18, however our prices are a bit less...quite a bit less...
 
Two versions of the TroKar big game hooks we're stocking, the HD Ringed and Offset Ringed models. They both are true circle hooks, but the shape is a bit different. The HD (heavy duty) offers a more traditional circle hook shape with a bit of a "kirbed" design (the point sticks out from the shaft of the hook as you can see in the image above). The Offset also has that characteristic, but it's shape is indeed different more inline in terms of the point to shaft but they change angles along the shaft of the hook. Both are indeed heavy duty hooks. I've not fished 'em yet myself, but by all looks and inspections these are up there with the industries best, and they are made here in America - the only premium hook manufactured in America. I think Eagle Claw has a very nice hook in both the HD and Offset ringed hooks. They're something we've been wanting to see since we dropped the product line a few years back given a lack of commitment to the Saltwater side of fishing. That's no longer the case, Eagle Claw has updated their design and now offers something that won't let you down when you finally get bit by that fish of a lifetime. Their old hooks were more of a value type product, and as such they simply could fail under high stress use. With the new models, well, those days are long gone. The HD and Offset Ringed are state of the art hooks by any measure.

Toro Tamer Top Banana

Banana Jigs for deep water are effective, super effective lures. Their shape allows for a nice swim on the drop, and they'll take a wide range of gamefish - a very wide range. Some use them to great effect on tuna, yellowtail, and of course there's no rockfish that won't jump on 'em, same for ling cod. We've made our Banana jigs in three finishes, chrome, gold and luminescent glow, and they're available in five sizes:

200 gm / 7 oz /6",
300 gm / 10.6 oz / 6 1/2",
 

Compared to similar lures on the market, we've upgraded the hooks used on our jigs. We run a single Mustad hook on the smallest size and 3X Mustad black chrome trebles on the larger sizes. All hooks are attached by way of split ring, and we add a swivel to the nose of the lure to deal with line twist. Nice lures folks, I'm sure you'll agree the first time you see 'em and even more certain once you fish 'em. Given they're our own production, the pricing is very user friendly, as well.

For our long range anglers, or those on the East Coast targeting larger grade tuna, consider rigging up the 200, 300, or 400 gm size lures with single hooks of appropriate strength. Certainly the go-to lure color in this regard, for those times when the fish are holding deep, is the luminescent banana, though the chrome or gold will prove effective in their own right. The lumo is a personal favorite of mine, however. We offer single hook rigging as an option below. This makes a very effective alternative to a Salas PL68.

On our most recent production we've discontinued the chrome and gold colored jigs. These are now available on closeout. The Lumo models are what we'll maintain going forward. They've proven very effective on this side of the sea for folks targeting a wide range of bottom fish, but also TUNA, BIG LONG RANGE TUNA. The Lumo model imitates a squid, and that's something the fish love to munch when available. That's probably why we had such a huge demand for these jigs in the 200 and 300 sizes last fall and summer. On the new production of the Lumo/Glow Banana Jigs we made a couple changes to the hook placement, moving the hooks to the heavy side of the jig for the 300 and 400 gm sizes. This will result in less tangles on a deeper drop. The image at the top of this section shows that change in rigging. For the smaller sizes hook placement stays put on the lighter side of the jig allowing for better casting and retrieve performance.
