06/28/2015
Welcome to our Weekly Specials - Wow it's feeling pretty darn tropical here in SoCal. This El Nino thing makes for some great fishing, but also pumps up the humidity in usually raison creating desert dry air'd California. It really did feel like Hawaii this weekend, little rain in the afternoon, a few drops and then warm, tradewinds coming in the later afternoon. El Nino weather for sure, and the result on the fishing front still darn incredible. Some very nice fishing going on for tuna, yellowtail, some dorado moving in and billfish it appears. Locally the great whites are getting a lot of publicity, some cute little pups swimming around scaring swimmers. Not quite like the bulls back East mind you, ours have been well behaved.

For the specials, we have a great group of excellent reels on tap. The headliner Okuma Cedros buy is coming to an end, 10's are sold out and we'll hit that finale on the 12 and 15 size shortly. So, I'd suggest jumping quickly before they are gone - nice reel to have in the arsenal for sure. We round out with Makairas, Avet Raptors and Accurate Fury Series reels. We have some new iron for you this week. Killer and Pep jigs are back! These old favorites pretty much went away many years ago, they are now back and in stock - original molds, same great swimming action. They are top producing jigs, surface iron. We also brought in the Phenix Cedros iron, some very nice wraps on those jigs. The special offer on the 5 piece travel rod continues, this is a heck of a buy and she won't be up much longer. We have some other wonderful lures posted this week and some needed accessories, too.

 
Thank you for visiting our Weekly Specials!

Great Stuff,
Mark Smith

Special #1

Okuma Cedros Jigging Reels

SAVE BIG - $80 Off!

Cedros Star Drag 10, 12 & 15

The 10's are sold out, the 12 and 15 sizes are running thin in supply. Time for procrastination is over folks. Chances are, this is the last week we'll have sufficient inventory on this special. So, if you've been on the fence, it's time to pull the trigger.

Arguably these are the best star drag reels on the market today. If you liked the old Daiwa Saltiga star drags these reels take that style reel in a very positive direction with improved drag performance, excellent machining, great casting, the flexibility of a star drag and darn sweet cosmetics, too. While a lot of reels have moved towards the lever drag form, there are reasons to work with a star drag. You can button down the drag without having issues with side load crunching a bearing. Freespool performance is naturally quite good. You can even do some fiddling while you are on a fish if necessary. When time comes for casting, these are excellent reels that do much more than dropping jigs to the bottom. They are flawless casters. I'm not sure which came first in their design, casting or jigging - but they do both roles very, very well. Over the past three years we've been offering these reels we've seen folks use them for a wide range of target species as one would expect. A lot of our long range guys have used the Cedros as their wahoo reel given their speedy retrieve rate and casting capability, local anglers put 'em to good use for yellowtail and tuna. And, of course those into vertical jigging love the reel's fast gear ratio, exceptional drag system and reliability. All in all, the Cedros has been one of our best selling reels, and now you have an opportunity for some serious savings!

We made a super buy on all three sizes of Cedros Star Drag reels. You save $80 off the top, Plus we toss in Free Shipping! Reels are in stock, and are all brand spanking new, these ain't refurbs, they are first line pieces of excellent quality. Right now you can save $80 on a wonderful reel which is very well suited for winding a jig in at a fast 6:1 retrieve rate, with a powerful drag capability of up to 28 lbs. Perfect for schoolie tuna and even better on a jigstick for yellowtail.

Pictured above the model 10, the 12 is just a tad wider for greater line capacity.

Opinion: "The Cedros star is the BEST Star Drag Reel on the market - that's my take, powerful, light, super drag. If you are into jigging, I consider this a must have piece."

 

Here's Okuma's run-down on the reel:

Beginning with a stunning A6061-T6 blue anodized aluminum frame with ported cross bars and continuing with machined aluminum side plates and gunsmoke anodized spool, the Okuma Cedros star drag backs outward beauty with incredible structural integrity. Producing up to 28-pounds of smooth drag thanks to its’ multi-disc Carbonite caged drag system and incredible freespool driven by 5BB+1RB Japanese stainless steel ball bearings, size 10 and 12 Cedros star drags deliver exceptional casting performance for live bait, iron and jig applications . Oversized machine cut brass gearing and fast 6.2:1 gear ratio deliver total control right to the palms of your hands. Cosmetically matched and balanced to Cedros Speed Jig rods, you’ll find this versatile combination in your hands throughout an incredible range of applications.

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. All reels in this series have both a clicker and reel clamp. 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).

They aren't for everyone, but for those who appreciate the enhancements and have the highest demands, they are reels to die for. Okuma's Makaira Special Edition Long Range reels take things to another level in terms of specific changes that some in the long range community have requested. Before getting into that, let me state clearly, the existing crop of Makaira reels are absolutely state of the art, and for most of us, myself included, there is little reason to head in the SE direction. The changes you'll see in the SE series reels appeal most to fishermen who are uncompromising in terms of their demands upon gear, guys who regularly head out to tangle with cow size tuna on the long range boats or aboard a sportfisher off Puerto Vallarta, those that will benefit most will be our most dedicated long range enthusiasts. Those that will benefit least will probably be private boaters, guys who tend to put on heavy miles on their gear and don't take the time to maintain 'em regularly. In a lot of ways the SE reels are custom shop offerings, based upon feedback from some of the most experienced anglers, guys who jumped on the Makairas early and fished 'em hard on the long range boats in 2010/11. To those, Okuma listened and responded, showing their sincere interest in building the best gear possible. The pricing of the SE series reels is a tad higher than the original Makaira reels, reflecting the change in handle and bearings used on these pieces. If you are seeking the best freespool performance, flylining live bait to large grade tuna, this series of reels will put a smile on your face and very likely result in a personal best on the boat.

50SEA pictured below:

 

Okay, now for what's different on the Special Edition reels, the SE Series reels feature:
- Open Spool Bearings with TSI-301 oil. This increases freespool 2 to 2 1/2 times!
- All non-spool bearings feature FULL grease pack for maximum longevity.
- Special Edition Gun Smoke and Black anodizing.
- SE reels have a yellowfin tuna etched into the side plate to further distinguish them from the Golds.
- Frames have been machined out for increased clearance between the spool and cross bars.
- Larger Handles, MK-8/10/15 reels will feature MK-20 size handle knobs for greater leverage.
- Larger Handles, MK 20/30 reels use the 50 size arm and knobs.
- New LOWER GEARING on the 20/30 size - 1.3:1!!!

Accurate Fury Series Reels
Pick your Special Offer - you have choices with CharkBait!

FURY - FX SERIES

First off, the FURY Series offers serious anglers Accurate performance at a VERY COMPETITIVE price point. This is achieved by simplifying design - these are single drag reels rather than twin drag design which is what you get when you upgrade to their Boss and Dauntless series reels. A true dual drag reels is more costly to produce, between Accurate's patent and the cost, little reason for other folks to attempt the technique. (Avet does have a dual drag series, their TRx reels - but they go for about $800 and do not go about applying pressure in the same manner). The Fury gets the most significant cosmetic improvements for 2015, now they're polished and their weight has dropped considerably and machining is more refined. The new Fury series will bring many new fishermen to appreciate the quality inherent in Accurate reels. These also get the new AR bearings, no dogs, only the improved bearings for the anti-reverse system. These are beautiful reels that do more than their competitors can in terms of materials used and drag capability. These reels will fish up to 20 lbs of drag measured at strike - meaning they are quite capable of fishing the range of line tests up to 60 lb.. Also, the freespool performance has been upgraded - same enhancement first incorporated in Accurate's Dauntless design. The new Fury series offers high useable drag levels, they spin like tops and are similar in that respect to Accurates Dauntless series - nothing spins quite as well right out of the box at this point in reel development. The Fury series incorporates high quality manufacturing, very nice cosmetics, and the fishability factor per dollar invested is high. Value does indeed meet performance with the new Fury series reels.


Image right offers magnifier view to check the details more
closely - must have "flash" installed (IPAD and Apple
products won't work)

Spooling - I hope we're not intimidating you with all the options, but folks tend to rig up Accurate reels in several  ways and we try to accommodate all applications. We include 300 yards of Braid/Spectra at no additional charge along with your mono topshot (if required) - that's the standard configuration. You can also select "solid" or hollow core Braid/Spectra and increase your line as desired by 100 yard increments by making use of the Optional sections below. The Fury series comes standard with "solid Braid" actually it's not solid it's 4 to 8 strand braid, it isn't hollow core braid. Hollow core carries an added cost on the Fury series. The BX and the Dauntless series reels include your choice of hollow or "solid."! For line capacity information please check our Accurate page, the manufacturers website, or just give us a call.

FREE OPTIONS: Toro Tamer Solid or Hollow Core Spliceable Braid, Izorline, Momoi, Cortland "solid" - 300 yards free. Fury series include solid, BX and Dauntless your choice of hollow or solid.
Added Cost OPTIONS: Spooling beyond 300 yards, Sato Hollow Core leader connections and served connections.

Special #5

Pep and Killer Jigs Return

Old Favorites Return!

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 of the 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 and measure about 6 1/2 inches.

Phenix Cedros Iron

Based upon Salas shapes with a unique color wrap

Some new jigs coming from Phenix. The designs are simply copies of Salas Jigs, like Sumo in that regard, and very nice copies. I'm not too keen on copying an original design which is still in production by the same family which originated a unique lure. That's one folks can decide themselves, but the quality of production is very good, excellent hooks, nicely made with big rings... Nice lures by any measure. What's truly unique is the baitfish wrap. The fellow that came up with the technique and I had a conversation regarding the potential of his work a few years ago back at our San Diego shop. Rich Whitiker (or something like that...it's been a few years remember). In any event it appears he hooked up with the owner of Phenix and they are teaming up on their iron offering. They are the nicest looking irons I've seen.

The trick finish has been applied to a tried and true shape and weight jig, that's the point of this production. The finish is unique for now, there will be others coming from more traditional sources of West Coast Iron shortly. Whether or not they swim as well as Matt Salas's original lures is yet to be determined. But, their finish is indeed pretty darn trick even if their shapes are copies rather than the result of creative innovation. Fishing the iron generates a bit of a reaction strike, some days one color and one speed of retrieve works best, another day something else. Good iron fishermen tend to keep at it until they get it right and then they've got plenty of action through the day. Color can be important, shape is absolutely important, speed plays a part, the way the jig swims is KEY. Some jigs swim right, other's don't. That's why guys at our shops tend to spend a lot of time swinging jigs before purchase. The swimming action is key to both surface and yoyo iron fishing, and on the surface it's a huge factor. These new "wrapped" jigs certainly do have the cosmetics, but whether or not that's for catching fishermen more than fish time will tell. One thing for sure, they are indeed good looking! 

The Cedros 7X is a Surface Iron, the Jr. is for yo-yo style fishing. Jigs are rigged with treble hooks.
7X - 6 1/2" 3 oz
JR - 4 1/2" 4.5 oz.

In the images below, the 7X surface irons are pictured beneath the heavy Jr's. Yes, 7X's are longer and lighter - different materials used in constuction.

Toro Tamer Nano 30-60 Travel Rod
Factory Goofed - You SAVE $100

Here's the reason for this offer: The factory Toro Tamer contracted with to produce these rods screwed up. They made use of a larger reel seat than was specified on an order of 100 rods. The consequence of this is that many reels can not be used with a reel clamp on the rod as it was produced. The rod features an all aluminum reel seat, with TWO lock down rings. One ring locks the other, and that secures the reel. But, the seat is larger than was specified and many reels can't fit with a reel clamp. Functionally, not an issue, but it ain't as was specified and we need to clear out the inventory.

Traveling to great fishing destinations is something most of us dream of doing, and there are many of us to make it a point of achieving. There's only one downside, depending upon having good gear to fish at remote spots can be a big problem. Getting your own gear to those destinations can be a bit of a problem. Airlines don't much care for transporting rods in long tubes. Hmm, perhaps they do care for doing so...at a crazy price! Can be $100 each way, and what about the little crop duster plane that gets you from the big city to the little village...? Thus the motivation for good travel rods. CharkBait and ToroTamer have been at this for several years now, with Offshore Explorers, Surf Explorers and Inshore Explorer rods - rods that are marketed worldwide and catching notable fish for demanding anglers.

The rod was first shown off at ICAST 2014. For the first time Nano Technology was applied to a travel rod! The use of Nano resins increases the rods strength dramatically improving long term reliability and capability. You've got to pull on the rod to appreciate it's strength and lightness; for it's typical fishing line test of 40-50 lbs, its a very nice piece to own. The new 30-60 Nano Offshore Explorer packs down to only 20 inches!!! When assembled the rod is 7 feet in length.

Let's repeat that, here's a seven foot rod that packs at 20 inches, comes in a very nice hard case with rugged fabric cover, makes use of advanced Nano technology and is priced under $300.  Given the wrong seat being used in production, the rods are being offered at $149!

The factory produced 100 pieces incorporating the wrong reel seat. Toro Tamer had a choice, send back the rods and have them corrected or offer these at a huge discount and go back to the drawing board with a different factory. That's what ToroTamer did. Toro sold the rods to CharkBait at a discount, ate the loss and will show off two new rods at this year's ICAST in July. The new rods will be lighter in intended line test, a 15-25 and a 25-40#. Their design will be a bit different but will still incorporate the carbon fiber and nano resins in production. Based upon the new models production a new heavier rod which covers the 50-60# application will be produced. That's months away from happening, probably 2016. So, if you are looking for a rod which fishes 40-60 beautifully, the Nano 30-60 is the one you want. It's a perfect companion on a trip to Baja, fishing from pangas or cruisers. Again,  given the size of reel seat, not all reels will fit with rod clamp. The reel seat is large for it's class. It's meaty, large, not a skinny seat. It's made from metal, not plastic. The seat is robust and large, robust enough to handle a great deal of stress, but by being large not all reels will fit. Avet LX/LX, HX and Pro series reels fit with clamps fine. HXJ and MX series will not fit with clamp, you'd need to run the reel without clamp, but you do have the security of the double lock down on the high quality aluminum reels seat so there should be no issues in use. Similarly a Baja Special, given it's narrow frame will also have the same issue running a clamp. The guides are braid safe, reinforced designed, and of course the rod comes with a very nice hard case for storage and transport.

Toro Tamer Metal Swimmers
New Product Introduction

Toro Tamer's Metal Swimmers are an update of an old lure which we loved, but unfortunately went away. It's based on a old Dymara jig from about 15 years back. The old lure was produced in Poland, came to America by way of Canada. The manufacturer went out of business, could not offer the lures here at a reasonable price. They were a big producer for me personally and that was motivation to create molds for this production. The lure was great for yellowtail, with bass and tuna being among the catches that the lures produced. The largest size also did quite well on wahoo. Here's what makes the lures so darn effective, it's their shape. There are many similar lures on the market, but with closer inspection you can easily see why this design is more productive. They produce more action on the drop. They can be fished on the slide like a standard megabait type jig, but in the cast-and-retrieve mode they are far more effective. They produce an enticing flutter on the drop. The body is thinner, with luminescent belly, and there's a slight curve to the lure. This can be easily increased or decreased by the angler to customize the lures "fall." We've also enhanced the rigging of these wonderful lures. The ToroTamer Metal Swimmer comes with a welded ring on the nose rather than a split ring, and the hooks are upgraded in both quality and size given the target species can be quite a bit bigger than your basic bass or rockfish (which these lures also handle quite nicely).

These excellent lures are available in five sizes and five color patterns. The lures are offered in the following weights: 7, 4.5, 3.6, 2.3 and 1.6 ounces. Lure lengths are: 6", 5", 4.5", 4" and 3.5 inches. We use Mustad 3561ED 3X hooks on all the lures, running a 1/0, 2/0, 3/0, 4/0, and 5/0 on the lures, from smallest to largest sized lure. How do these lures compare to similar products which are on the market? The Toro Tamer Swimmers make use of better and more expensive hooks than similar products, the rigging is better with the welded nose ring - thru wired of course, the lures are triple clear coated so the finish lasts longer, and they catch fish better given the enhanced shape. In summary, this is a lure that no tackle box should be without.

Rugged Shark
Marine Grade Footwear

Rugged Shark Great White (and blue)
Rugged Shark produces a wide range of boating and outdoor oriented footwear. We're stocking both this firm's boots and their unique deck shoe. The boots feature rubber construction for flexible long lasting wear. They are a comfortable boot, very comfortable with a great insert, the thickest cushion we've seen in a deckboot - and it feels great! The insert is water friendly and removable. The boots are not tall, requiring that you fold them down like the XtraTuff boots (which were primarily designed for agriculture). They make use of the SharkGrip slip resistant non-marking sole. All in all, these are some of the nicest boots we've seen with plenty of comfort to make a fisherman happy through a long day's fishing. These deckboots are available in both white and a deep navy blue.

 

One point to consider, most deckboots like the XtraTuffs run a good halfsize large in order to accommodate use of an insert. Without an insert you are "swimming" in the boots. The Rugged Shark deckboots come with the thickest removable insole I've seen on a factory deckboot. It's well over 1/4" thick, more like 1/3 down at the heel, and has a lot of comfortable cushioning. With the insert they run true to size, so if you wear an 11 size tennis shoe, go for the size 11 boot, if you are a 10 1/2 still go for the 11 since you can always wear thicker socks.

 

Please note the excellent non-slip sole as well as the kick
off feature on the back of the boot.

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.

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.

Toro Tamer ® Wounded Swimmer
Exceptional Lure for Wahoo & Tuna!

The new version of our popular Wounded Swimmer is into it's second generation. This lure was based upon an old SPRO design which was discontinued a few years back. Then, it was a general purpose lure, mostly popular in the smaller sizes. But, upon it being discontinued we made a large purchase and one of our clients discovered it's strength as a wahoo lure. Based upon his experience (goes by the nickname Planet, a PhD-type teaching and researching at a CA university between fishing trips), we brought the piece back as a CharkBait lure a couple years ago in two large sizes and it did very, very well for wahoo, yellowfin tuna and yellowtail (among other species). It did extraordinarily well for the "skins." (note the image right, a nice wahoo from our 2014 RRIII charter - lure still in the 'skins mouth)

In this update we've continued with the improvements made before, and added something for the guys targeting larger, harder pulling fish like tuna and wahoo. Now the lures have a ball bearing swivel as the attachment point for the hook, and we've added an oversized welded ring at the nose instead of the split ring for even better action from the lure. Both improvements will provide anglers with a better performance, and our thru wire construction and less brittle body (than the old SPRO) means the lure can survive longer in the real world encounters with a hard gelcoat on a boat without catastrophic cracking. It can happen, but it takes far more punishment than the old SPRO did, and we've made it a better lure for catching wahoo and tuna.

Yep, we made a better mousetrap - make that fish trap.  We have made the lures five productive colors, two sizes, 150 and 100 gram weights, 6 1/4 & 5 1/2 inches respectively. They have a very nice curve which provides some added action on the retrieve, and upon the drop mimics a stunned bait as it drops in a flutter. The lures are exceptional, and all the colors are excellent in attracting attention from the targeted species. The big eyes also add to their realistic appearance and attention getting, fish attracting performance. These are some of the best wahoo and tuna lures you'll find. They can be fished on the slide as well as cast and retrieve mode. The price went up a tad from the earlier production, but the value is in the upgrade lures without a doubt. Both the new hook, welded ring and swivel will make these lures even better than their predecessor, and those were darn good lures with lots of fish to their credit.
