4/24/2016
Welcome to our Weekly Specials.

Some fun stuff this week. We received some new Sunline which we've been anxiously waiting on, some "tweener" tests and one basic to our needs.  We still have a few tests coming, and some heavier lines we'd like to see imported by this firm.  They finally have their 40# here, as well a 35# test Fl line which will be a most welcomed addition. By mid month we'll see their 45 and 55 lb tests arrive. I really like this option, having a 5 lb increment for the moderate line tests we most commonly use here. We have some nice lures to show off, a travel rod, and several wonderful reels this week. The Rainshadow custom built rods are all here now, all models and good stock for immediate shipping. Thanks goes out to "SaltyDawg" (Bill Havens) for the excellent workmanship and for moving our rods to the head of the line for completion. These represent a wonderful value in quality rods, beautifully built, high quality blanks and components. 

I talked with the folks from the Eclipse last week, our favorite short trip charter boat. We'll again have our May exploratory trip (20th of May - posted on our Charter page). While we've had the first fish honors the past few years that's not going to be the case this season given the current bite on bluefin going on now. It's still going to be a wonderful trip and I encourage you to sign up if you are looking for a good experience on the water next month. We'll try to add another short 1 1/2 or 2 day trip aboard either the Eclipse or the Commander (same ownership) later in the summer to compliment our longer trips on the Red Rooster and Royal Polaris.  If you have not booked your trips for the summer and fall, you really need to get going. Space is limited and the best boats get spots filled early. Most of our trips are already filled, but there can be cancelations so the wait-list can work out for you. It's really looking great for this seasons fishing.

Thank you for visiting our Weekly Specials!  

Great Stuff,
Mark Smith

Special #1

Daiwa LEXA!

300 Yards FREE SUPER BRAID

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

You have my apology for not adding this series of reels to our mix earlier. I, and perhaps others, missed this one, overlooked due to the ground breaking baitcasting Lexa reels and other spinners from several manufacturers that clouded the waters so to speak. Well, the guys from the shop re-directed me...and now we're stocking the Lexa Spinners in depth. There are several models in this line, perfect for inshore and surf fishing with lighter lines (noting that the guys here typically work with 4-6 lb test for corbs, 'butts and perch). The Lexa spinners have some excellent features, mentioned below, but you'll probably note the same thing I did when I picked one up, they are smooth in feel. Nothing quite as nice as a Daiwa spinner, one crank of the handle demonstrates that fact. The features are right, the feel is super, right bearings and attention to corrosion resistance, all features add up to the Lexa spinners being just as solid and well thought out as their baitcasting brothers. Daiwa discontinued the much appreciated Coastal spinners in 2012/13, the Lexa takes off where the Coastals left off, a very positive improvement over what was a very good reel.

 

 

Lexa® Spinning Reels Feature:

  • Aluminum Alloy “HardBodyz®” construction
  • Felt-sealed body
  • Strong, lightweight Air Rotor
  • 5 Bearing System (4BB + 1 RB)
  • Digigear™ digital gear design
  • Air Bail® of lightweight, hollow stainless
  • Infinite Anti-Reverse
  • Micro-click front drag adjustment
  • ABS Aluminum Spool
  • Twist Buster II line twist reduction
  • Advanced Locomotive Levelwind for precise, even line winding
  • Lifetime® Bail Spring
 

 

Air Rotor made from Zaion carbon composite, the Air Rotor weighs up to 15% less than ordinary rotor designs. Its unique shape reduces unnecessary weight while distributing stress more evenly throughout the rotor for maximum strength.

FREE BRAID & MONO SPOOLING and FREE SHIPPING
Rigging: given the capability of these reels, there are many rigging options available. Solid Toro Tamer Braid is no charge, white, inshore brown or depth finder multi-color. We have three versions of Toro Tamer Hollow lines, 8 strand and 16 strand products. The 30# 8 strand is skinny and works great as a line used with a knot connection where thin diameter is helpful in gaining capacity. It's feel is far superior to standard 4 strand lines. ToroTamer's 16 Strand Ultra Thin 20 and 30# Spliceable braids are the best lines of their type on the market (and only spliceable lines available in such thin diameters from any supplier). No doubt these would be the best you can run on the Lexa, with the 30# 8 strand hollow being second best and the 4 strand "solid" being what's typically used. (The 4 strand is a n/c option, 8 strand carries a +$15 charge, the 16 strand Ultra Thin $40  added expense for up to 300 yds. And, "solid" braid with a tied connection is FREE).

ProGear!
Gone for a Decade, Now Back and Better Than EVER!
FREE BRAID + LOWER REEL PRICES THIS WEEK!
Initially $249 - NOW $219!

ProGear made quite a name for themselves in the '90's and early 2000's before leaving the market. Their driving force, Yishi moved on. But, now he's back, the factory is pumping out reels and they are indeed better than ever. PG just announced a lower price for their reels. They are aggressively trying to bring back these wonderful reels to the fishing community. Lower prices will increased their sales, allow them to increase volume and economies of scale...and result in more new models from PG in the future.  At the new selling price, there's nothing on the market that can touch their value. $219 for a quality machined aluminum reel with this type of performance...nothing like 'em on the market these days, for sure.

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, however on 3/25 Pro Gear announced their new price at $219.

Two new models have been added to the Pro Gear line, and are now in our 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. 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.

 

All models are in stock now, including the little V20!

And, pricing has been cut to only $219 for all models!
The manufacturer did their job, designed a dandy reel and reduced their prices.
We're doing our part by including the rigging and shipping at no charge to you!

AVET Raptor Special Production
Dorado/Mahi/Dolphinfish Colors

A few years ago Avet created a special production run of "Raptorskin" colored reels. These limited production reels were unique, and became collector items - and darn nice fishing pieces, too. At ICAST 2015 Avet showed off their newest limited production color - in Dorado. Availability is limited. This multi-color anodization process is expensive to create, but it's unique and distinctive. Avet SXJ, SX, MXJ, MXL, JX, LX, HX and HXW models are being produced - only Raptor Series models are included in this production. Raptors are Avet's best series of casting oriented reels, high performance, high drag capability and superior casting qualities - with Magnetic Cast Control. The reels are only available in standard right hand form - no lefties. From $493 to $612.

Solterra SLX Single & 2 Speeds
New Product Introduction - FREE SUPER BRAID SPOOLING!

2016 INTRODUCTION
Two Speed Reels

Well, here's another series of reels from Okuma that offer folks a very nice alternative, good quality at a very good price point. The Solterra line of lever drag reels are nothing less than a great value, coupled to a very strong performing reel. There are single speed and Two Speed reels in this line. For this weeks special we're showing off the two speeds, and offering free braid rigging included in their price. Okuma introduced an update to these popular reels at ICAST 2015, which became available in 2016. The cosmetic upgrade was significant, the reels are much better looking. But, that's on the outside, inside they have done some updating as well. All in all, these are very nice reels, especially for the private boater who typically doubles up on the gear. There are no better two speed reels made for the money! Priced from $220 to just under $300, the value is awfully strong, and this week we sweeten the deal with free rigging - including Super Braid. Outfitting a boat, need some new two speeds? The Solterra's deserve a solid look, no doubt about that. Solterra models offer a one year parts and labor warranty.

RainShadow Custom Built Rods

RainShadow blanks have been gaining a very supportive audience in the custom rod building world. The firm that brings these blanks to market also is the worldwide distributor for ALPS rod building components, guides, reel seats, etc. They know rods, they are astute and dedicated to bringing quality to the market. They have a very strong design team at work, and their blanks show the knowledge gained through listening to the most demanding rod builders in the world. As a consequence of their listening they have a very broad range of blanks in their catalog, made for specific purposes. We've been hearing more and more from folks asking if we'd build rods from these well proven blanks. We did our homework, listened to the right folks, selected the right blanks, and thankfully we are associated with one of the better rod builders in SoCal (SaltyDog - Bill Havens) who we asked to produce several models of rods which are made for our style of fishing.

For 2016 we've added to our mix of custom made Rainshadow rods. We again made use of excellent Rainshadow RX6 blanks, the RCJB 84H and 84XH 30-80#, RCLB 70M and ML live bait rods all in seven foot length. We also produced an 8 foot jigstick - RCLB80M which is great for fishing 30-40#.

We made a few changes for this production from our earlier build of RainShadow blanks. Wraps are now in silver rather than gold, a bit simpler wrap, added a metal ALPS reel seats on all seven foot rods with ALPS soft gimbal. The jigstick make use of a durable sine-cord wrapped handle.

2016 Offshore RainShadow Rods:
For this year's production we've incorporated many of the same blanks as in our earlier 2014/15 production. The wrap color is silver for the new production. All of the rods offered make use of the RX6/E-Glass series blanks. These are composite blanks, making use of graphite on the lower end of the blank for sensitivity and relatively light weight. The tips are blended to E-Glass for a boost in durability. The actions are fairly fast, powerful and versatile. Very similar to Calstar actions and blank design, given the transition to 'glass through the tip. Wonderful rods to fish, great rods to own, and Bill Havens' (Salty Dawg) custom build is second to none - the man knows what he's doing and builds a very nice rod. Those points are all easy to demonstrate once you put one of these in your hands. If you are local, drop over to our shops and check 'em out.


The 8 ft. jigstick makes use of a sine-cord wrapped handle - deckhand style with no reel seat.

Nice cosmetic work on the rods, like the upper end of the handle on the jigstick, very smooth and exactly what one would expect on a custom built rod.

All 7 ft. rods come with a METAL double lock down ALPS reel seats. This is certainly not something expected on rods at the price points we're achieving on these rods.
 

All 7 ft. rods come with the ALPS Soft Gimbal.

OFFSHORE EXPLORER TRAVEL RODS
- for jigging, casting & bait

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

Our newest effort in travel rod design for 2016, two models available in both spinning and conventional reel format 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.

The newest Toro Tamer Offshore Explorer is a casting rod, not really intended as a trolling piece like the heavier models we produce. The piece does well casting, jigging and one can swim a live bait quite nicely, too. The guides are "spectra safe" meaning they can deal with even the cheaper super braids without failure or premature wear. Reel seats are appropriately sized for most all models of fishing reel a person would use on a rod designed for the line classes intended.   

7 foot length, travel at 24 inches, Nano resins, carbon fiber, hard case, spinning or conventional guides, 15 to 40# line test application, moderate to fast actions...very nice, indeed.

CharkBait Diver Minnow
Clearance - Regularly $15 SALE
$9.99

The lures offered here, our Floating Diver Minnow Series Yellowtail Coffin Nails, can be effectively used as cast and retrieve baits - in both shallow and deep diver forms. In 2012 we expanded this series to include some shallow divers and a BIG Deep Diver designed for trolling duty. The lures in this series make use of good quality VMC 3X hooks, and the lures are thru-wired for greater strength, necessary when tangling with better grade fish. That's something they will be doing a lot of, they're proven fish catching designs and given that we are the direct producer we're able to bring these great lures to you at a savings of darn close to 50%. The closest competing lure in terms of design and shape retails at something darn close to $20, and we offer them at $17.  Like our Metal Swimmers and Metal Sliders, we also upgrade some things that we think important. In this case, we added SOLID rings to the nose of the lures. That sure beats using a loop for your tie-off or the bulk and weight of a snap. (please note the solid rings on the lures - photo below)

These lures are best used as either a cast and retrieve bait OR a light line trolling lure. By light line, I mean 20# mono or 50# Spectra. Heavier line will reduce their tracking and negatively effect depth. For the troll, please go with the LARGE 270mm lures listed below. These are made for exactly that application, prospecting for better grade yellowtail and tuna.

Model Design Application Size Weight Hooks Ring
Extra Large NEW Deep Diver Trolling 270mm/11" 112G/4oz 3X VMC Welded

Local Yellowtail? Troll these lures near working birds and you will indeed get bit by a nice yellowtail. The lighter the line the better, say 25-30 lb mono and 20 can work great too - just set your drag appropriately. With the larger size you won't be wasting time de-hooking mackerel, and you'll target the larger 20 lb plus yellowtail. For local yellowtail drag blue, green, brownback, black/silver lures for best success.

Pep and Killer Jigs

Time for Surface Iron

Old Favorites Return - Made in the USA (Huntington Beach Ca to be exact)!

SURFACE IRON - Left Coasters well know the productivity and pure fun of fishing surface irons. Nothing like it, with the exception of tossing poppers to tuna. Surface iron will take yellowtail, barracuda and a host of aggressive gamefish. Many of our East Coast clients have discovered the merits of this type of fishing for stripers, bluefish and more. It takes a bit of experimenting to get the speed just right, to entice the most aggressive strikes. But, a very little bit of time getting the speed dialed in for the day pays off with big dividends.

These are two old time favorite West Coast "Iron" lures which are now coming back into production. The old Pep and Killer jigs were favorites from about 30 years back. There have been a few on the used tackle sites over the years, quickly gobbled up. Both lures have strong adherents who well remember them from the older days, guys who knew surface iron and swore by these designs. They'd catch fish when other more well known designs were not getting a bite. Both the Pep 5, 6 and Killer 65 lures offered are surface iron, great for yellowtail, calico bass, striped bass and more. The lures are both about six inches in length and weigh 2.5 ounces. For those traveling south, they are also excellent lures for Roosterfish and really any fish which reacts to surface lures. They swim great, that's their big strength. You'll find more uniformity of that characteristic, they all swim great - by design.

 

These are unique jigs, not copies. The old molds were purchased many years ago, now the owner in expanding beyond the garage stage to bring the jigs back into full production. What was a part time hobby is now a full time venture.

All jigs come with Mustad treble hooks.


Killer 7 - 3.25 oz 93 gm, 7" @ $12.95
Killer 65 - 2.4 oz 68 gm, 6.5" @ $11.95
Killer CB1 - 1.9 oz 53 gm, 6" @ $10.95


Pep - 8 - 5.5 oz 157 gm, 8" @ $14.95
Pep - 6 - 2.2 oz 61 gm, 6" @ $11.95
Pep - 5 - 1.85 oz 52 gm, 5" @ $10.95
Pep - 3 - 1.65 oz 48 gm, 4.5" @ $9.95

Two new models have been added to our mix, the HUGE Pep 8 and slim Killer CB1. These surface irons are great additions. The thin bodied Killer CB1 will really be appreciated by those targeting stripers, roosters and yellowtail when they are feeding on smaller baits. The BIG Pep 8 covers territory given up by Tady with their 77 (stopped production several years ago). The lure is also a good inch longer than the Salas 7. Great action on the big Pep, lots of kick to the jig on retrieve and with the bigger profile, it's going to bring strikes from the big ones. Trying to get a 50 lb yellowtail at Cedros to come up and grab your jig, this one is the ticket no doubt about it.

SUNLINE
Japanese Quality - Exceptional Value
New Line Tests Now Available!

Who says 100% Fluorocarbon has to be expensive?

Sunline is an interesting addition to our product mix. Background, Sunline has produced lines for several well known brands offered here in America as well as Europe and Oceana. As a company, they are actually very large, the largest line only manufacturer in the world! Pretty funny that no one knows 'em except those in the business, but we've all probably fished their line. Their lines are made in Japan, to very high standards. They produce mono, Fluorocarbon (14 different types!), braided lines - nothing but line and pretty much anything considered fishing line. Their FL lines have gained some significant success, and they are reaching out to the saltwater community next. Under their own brand name they've been moving forward quite well in the bass community, with many top performing angers using their FL lines and other products as well, Aaron Marten won at Havasu fishing their line, 1st, 2nd and 4th place angers on the B.A.S.S. tournament trail are fishing their FL lines, etc. Some of the top names in pro bass fishing use their lines exclusively, and that says something. I met these folks at ICAST this year, 2015 and was given a sample of the line for evaluation. Specifically their System Leader - Tournament Shock Leader.

Manufacturer is promoting the line's thin diameters, good stretch characteristics, and high abrasion resistance as key features of their specialized line. Their intent was to make a superior line which targets specific properties those of us fishing braid to leader seek - excellent knot strength, abrasion resistance, consistent stretch. It's not a limp line which would reduce abrasion resistance. The System Leader offers a predictable stretch factor, hard finish for excellent abrasion resistance and good diameters when compared to other lines on the market. Line test rating is conservative. We did our own testing once the product arrived, confirmed earlier testing we did prior to bringing it into inventory. Testing confirmed manufacturers statements: conservative break strength, high stretch, hard finish for abrasion resistance and improved knot strength when tied directly to braid. I've fished it on two of our charters, both in September - it's a very good line. The line is made with 100% FL resins, it's a true Japanese quality product, made in Japan, strong in the Japanese market and making an entry to the USA. Might well be worth checking this line out.

As mentioned, Sunline produces 14 different types of Fluorocarbon leaders, they do specialize and produce lines with specific characteristics matched to targeted applications! The System Leader is a unique blend, designed to offer fishermen specific features:

  • ●The evolution of a new concept: 100% fluorocarbon leader. Non-stress spooling to avoid crushing or flattening of the line. Comes in 30m/100m spools ideal for offshore trips.
  • ●Balanced design is line weight specific: emphasis on suppleness and minimum interference on lure movement to light game lines, and a focus on hardness and the ruggedness to withstand abrasion and strong, sharp teeth to the limit for big game lines.
  • ●TRP (Triple Resin Processing) to outstanding abrasion resistance against rocks, debris, weeds, and the fish’s body.
  • ●Knot strength has been boosted for lightweight lines designed for light game, since these lines are often tied in uni knots or blood knots. Now you can use a much thinner leader than was previously possible – be prepared to get more hardness and tenacity so the line would not be cut by PE lines or the eye of your lure.
  • ●Super PE Shift! Designed with enhanced surface hardness for strengthening knots made with super PE lines like PE Jigger 8 HG and Deep One. No more problems with your braid cutting into your leader.

 

Length : 100m ●Color:Natural Clear
Line Test - lbs 20# 30 35# 40# 45# 50 55# 60 80 100#
Standard Diameter (mm) 0.405mm .0.470 0.52 0.57 0.62 0.66 0.70 0.74 0.84 0.91

For anglers running straight Fluorocarbon leader on top of braid, this line was developed for just that purpose. That is it's intent, though it certainly can be used in shorter lengths. Most will run 25 feet to 25 yards as a topper above the braid. Spool size is 100 meters, 110 yards - NOT FEET! Do the math, it's priced quite well, enough so that it should embarrass one well known supplier quite clearly. My gosh, 110 yards of this excellent product runs less than 50 yards of Seaguar FL line! You can understand why we brought in the line, it's a good product and very good value. Compared to other Fl lines, Sunline is now offering better value, less hype and every bit as good a result - it's a top quality Japanese produced line.

Toro Tamer Bucktail Jigs

Bucktail jigs are workhorses, productive for a wide variety of fish, and successfully fished in a few different styles. They can be used cast and retrieve and vertically. They can be dragged along the bottom, they can be used with a slab from fresh cut bait, with a curly tail grub, bottom line they are flexible producers of gamefish. Over the past 15 years we've stocked some wonderful bucktails from several manufacturers, SPRO, P-Line and ProFishCO. Every one of them had some characteristics we liked, and some features we desired to see...but didn't. Sadly, two of those suppliers stopped production of their lures. So, ToroTamer came along and made their own, based on what we wanted to see.

At our shop in Huntington Beach we are fortunate to have a very talented private boater, Beta, who is one of the best white seabass fishermen I know. Several years ago he began using a jig (that I'll claim credit to introducing him to) a simple bucktail jig. Beta fished 'em with a fresh dead squid and found it was perfection, almost a do-nothing bait that was his most productive secrete weapon for WSB. There were two problems, the hook could be improved, and even more of a problem, the supplier for the jig went out of business. ToroTamer's design is not unique, far from it, it's simply a refinement of an already very good lure - and it's made with the right kind of skirting and right kind of hook. There are four color patterns available for the jigs, white, glow, red and white and blue and white. The lures all feature a fishskin with unique UV properties and glow. All lures are hand tied, and then reinforced so that they'll hold up well. For those of you who know the productivity of bucktail jigs and are familiar with their use, you'll find plenty of things to appreciate with these designs. To those new to fishing a bucktail, put some time in fishing them and you will discover a new go-to lure for sure.
