New Arrivals:

Avet G2 Series Single & Two Speeds
New Reels from Avet -  Some Here Now, Some Arriving Soon!

2017 INTRODUCTION - models becoming available now...
 

For 2017 Avet has announced the new G2 Series (as in generation II) reels to their line. The new reels offer increased drag performance, important for those fishing heavier lines. Also, similarly to the Raptor series, the spool and frame allow for a modest increase in line capacity and smoother performance at higher drag settings. These single drag reels increase the flexibility of the models in comparison to the standard series. For instance, the new JX model now can fish 50# very well, while the standard JX is really a 40# and down piece, the JX/LX G2's can cover 40/50 and even 60# lines with appropriate drag performance. That's a significant upgrade in performance over the standard series reeels, and the lever upgrade is also quite useful in setting more precise drag levels and in operation. Whether or not the G2's upgraded performance is right for you depends upon the line tests you plan on fishing in my estimation. Again, back to the JX, if your intent is to fish the piece at 30-40 lb test leaders, then there's no big reason to spend the extra money. However, if you are like me, and want to fish 40-50# on a JX, then the upgrade is very significant and makes the piece a value when compared to the Raptor version. For Avet to provide us fishermen such a range in products, all geared to the types of fishing we do, well it's wonderful and demonstrates that these folks are indeed listening to their clients and coming to market with products that suit all anglers. With respect to the SX/MX series G2's, I see a logical generational improvement. The drag curves were fine with the earlier models for fishing say 30# and down, really better suited for 25# and down lines. Given an increase in drag of about 40% above the previous models, 13 lbs at strike on the SX/MX, we're really still looking at fishing 30# and down rather than 40 - but there's going to be less sideload pressure on the spool bearing, greater longevity when the reel is pushed to higher and more appropriate drag settings for 30 lb line and down. For the JX, a favorite of mine for fishing 40#, it's a big difference. Now the piece will fish 50# properly, 40 and 50 and that's bread and butter for anyone on the left coast heading out on a trip along the Mexican coast. 

The first production will be in the Neptune's Heart color combo - bronze and red as pictured above. This will carry a $10 higher cost than the standard colors. We've now received SX and MX series reels in most standard colors as well as the two color Neptune. The JX/LX series will follow this month - could likely be end of January before the larger two models are completed.

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

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 30 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 or 60 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 quick 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 500 yds of 80# Braid and turning up to 40 lbs of drag. And, in 2016 the narrow LGN was released (Thanks Wes).

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.* 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 Truth updated the LG series reels to include a strike button! That's good news for many of us. The SG also now incorporates that feature, as does the LGN. All SG/ LG/ LGN reels include a reel clamp.

gee wiz* (I must say that this characteristic is changing, we're noting more spin out of the box these days - they do spin VERY well right from the get-go 07/2016).

We've now been selling these reels to our clients for about four years time. Each year we see the firm progress in terms of their quality. durability has always been excellent given some of the things these guys do differently from other manufacturers. We've had clients buy one, then come back and outfit their boats with the reels. Further, as one of our Kayakers mentioned, "I'm selling off all my other #$&* reels to buy more SG's - they perform better and have less maintenance issues." Other guys have commented on the power these reels offer, they are quite surprising in that regard, but really it's simply physics, one look at the image right confirms why the reels offer so much raw cranking power. The tiny SG has larger gears than a TLD!

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.
New LGN (narrow) pictured above - great size for jigging and casting iron.

Daiwa SALTIST
New ICAST 2016 Introduction

300 Yards FREE SUPER BRAID

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

Daiwa's Saltist series spinning reels represent an update of their 2009 product line. Very good update and upgrade, now the reels offer enhancements which were only available on their most expensive Saltiga spinners. The Saltist spinners are dedicated saltwater reels - that's the difference between the new BG's and the Saltist series. The Saltist reels incorporate the better anti-corrosion CRBB bearings, and much more.

One step down from the Saltiga series spinning reels, the Saltists are made for serious saltwater enthusiasts. They are made for a harsh environment with more anti-corrosion protection than less expensive reels in the Daiwa lineup.  With the rugged and durable reputation earned by the Saltist series, these reels offer some impressive features. Fist among these is the Magsealed main shaft, eliminating saltwater intrusion. The reels offer a Magsealed line roller and CRBB corrosion resistant ball bearings for long lasting smoothness and performance. Beyond the Magsealed main shaft and line roller, these new reels offer Daiwa's HardBodyz body and side cover - metal with protective finish. You get the benefits of the light weight Air Rotor design, Air Bail - tubular stainless for lightweight strength. Digigear design and dynamic cut aluminum ABS spool. You also gain a waterproof Carbon ATD drag system!

Special #4

ACURATE Valiant
-New Micro Reels with Mega POWER!

Accurate's tiny Valiant 300 proved their point - it's small, very small and very, very capable to taming larger grade fish. We've received the new 400 size in both single and two speed form - in stock NOW!

Accurate's newest fishing reel is the Valiant, a very interesting micro small model with mega power. Overseas Micro-Jigging has become a popular method for catching fish. Small jigs, fished vertically on rods with VERY light action can produce a catch when other methods won't do squat. In areas that have been "fished out" folks are catching fish they'd have missed without this method employed. Whether or not that's a positive step in overfished waters is not the point, the method is important and useful even in abundant waters, and the innovations in fishing technology used can be applied to different applications. In Mico-Jigging the fisherman works very small jigs, similar to how one should fish knife jigs (and similar iron) on parabolic rods matched to the jig weight for best action. Then, once hooked up the angler points the rod directly at the fish and uses the reel's power to crank in the fish. There's a certain amount of finesse and a certain measure of raw power employed in fishing this method. All the stress of the fight is handled by the reel, not the rod. Here, rather than Asia, micro-jigging may not become the rage, however the concept of taking larger fish on smaller gear is something we have all learned to love, and no doubt Accurate wrote the book on that pursuit.  Taking that style of fishing, dropping down to much lighter jigs and rods is what folks are doing in this new method of catching fish. Having a reel small enough to balance out on the rod and yet powerful enough to fight the fish is the key. Power is critical, and the new Valiant from Accurate combines superior power to exceptionally light weight - 9.9 ounces!

Specifications:

  • Patented Twin Drag Desigh

  • 6061 T6 Aluminum construction

  • Anodized for increased corrosion resistance

  • Smooth, easy find cam stop strike position

  • Super light weight at only 9.9 ounces!

  • 300+ yds of 30# braid line capacity

  • 300+ yds 50# braid on 400 size models

  • Lever drag recessed ergonomic thumb plate

  • 6:1 gear ratio

  • 32 inch line retrieve per crank

  • Precision cut stainless steel gears

  • New design handle arm for increased torque and power

  • 2 Anti-Reverse bearings with SEALED washers to prevent corrosion

  • Sleeved Spool for improved freespool performance

  • Manufacturer's stated drag measured at strike  20 lbs. (in reality we are seeing numbers upon testing that are about 50% higher, with freespool performance)

The 300 size does not have a reel clamp nor a clicker, the 400 size being wider does come with a clamp and a strong and loud clicker.

For 2017 Accurate expands upon the Valiant series reels. We've received the new 400 size in both single and two speed forms. These new reels are almost the same weight, use the same frame/housing for both models. Weight is 14 ounces. Drag comes in at 20 lbs., specs consistent with the smaller 300 size. except line capacity increases to 300+ yds of 50# super braid.

Pricing: V300 @ $399, V400 @ $459, V400 2 Speed @ $599

SEI Line Winder
High Torque for the Hobbyist

SEI Line Winder

Here's a very interesting new winder which should be of interest to a lot of folks. SEI makes many things, most having nothing to do with fishing. However, the firm's owner is a long range fisherman and he's come up with several innovative and needed products for us fishy types.

The new SEI winder is a unique product at an attractive price. It comes with all you need, motor, board, reel mount, all installed.  It also comes with a unique line despooler for taking off your lines.  Pricing is at an introductory level at $800, and the piece has enough torque to pack your braid, even heavy 130 lb tests.  The new winder is no Omega or Triangle HD 140, but it's 1/3 the price of the Triangle and is sufficient for the more experienced long range angler and others who have need to do their own rigging.

 

Those are the pluses. Now for negatives... The machine takes some fiddling, getting the alignments correct. Once done, no issue, but you'll need to be sure that the alignment of the reel and the arm for winding are set up properly.  At present there is no owners manual or set of instructions for the winder, it would be nice to have that done and most likely we'll produce a brief video to assist. The winder does not make use of a foot peddle, instead there's an on/off switch with adjustment knob. That's quite workable, and takes less space to work with, but it's not typical. What I really do like about this new winder is it's construction, motor, ease of use once you become familiar with it's operation. Simple, straight ahead design, nice ergonomics, adequate motor and power supply.

The first production has the winder mounted on a metal base as is pictured. This will change once they begin mass production, probably going to make use of a wooden base in the future. At the present time, the base is metal.

TORO TAMER HOLLOWCORE SPLICEABLE
SUPER BRAID
BUY A SPOOL AND GET A FREE RIGGING NEEDLE KIT!

Here's a deal that has no equal. ToroTamer's 16 strand hollowcore line is the best of it's type on the market, easy to work with, smooth and strong. Those are not idle boasts, we are happy to guarantee this fact with replacement or credit should you not agree fully. Toro Tamer is also the only producer of hollowcore in both 12 and 16 strand forms, and the only braid supplier who can make 20 and 30# sized spliceable braid. For 2015 Toro is also the only firm to produce their own rigging needles. With respect to the lines, the 16 stand is easier to rig, absolutely preferred for making wind-ons, while the 12 strand has some advantages for reel fills - it's packs a bit more on a given reel and costs less, too. But, make no mistake, the best line Toro produces is their 16 strand. This week, or as stock allows, we have a great offer to bring to your attention. Buy a 1000 meter spool (about 1100 yards) of the 16 strand and get a free braid rigging needle set! (actually you'll be billed for 1 cent) Yep, your pick of either the 7 or 9 piece needle kit when you buy one 1000 meter (~1100 yd) spool of the 16 strand spliceable super braid! That's a savings of at least $60 or more (and if you compare the price of Toro's rigging needles the value is more like $100)!

Toro Tamer® 16 STRAND HOLLOW CORE SUPER BRAID
The New Best in Class Spliceable Super Braid
®

Toro Tamer's 16 strand Hollow Core line, offers anglers the easiest to use, 100% pure PE fiber super braid on the market for all inline rigging applications. And, this week you have the opportunity to grab both line and your rigging needles at an incredible price - one week only, one offer per client only, and the deal's off the table once we sell out...and we will indeed sell through the allotment for this promotion. You'll love both the line and the rigging needles which feature polished and tapered points - they're super easy to use!



130# size Needle Point


 

The image to the left shows ToroTamer's improved needle point. another firms needle point. ToroTamer needles have a bit more pronounced point which makes it easier to begin insertion into hollow braid and the point is more highly polished so it slips through the line more easily.

Toro's unique design was the result of much time spent using other manufacturers products over the years. There were a few things we felt that could be improved upon in the design of these essential accessories.

One point to mention, threading needles are made to handle specific line sizes, but not all lines at a given test share the same diameter. Toro's needles accommodate a range of leader sizes, but a rated 50# needle will not accept all nominally rated 50# leaders - diameters vary. So, in the case of the 50# example, it may be necessary to use a 60# needle for sine 50# lines.

MirrOlure

MirrOlure has been around for a long time. Their longevity is testament to their success. But, they haven't rested on that success, they've also done quite a bit of refining over the years. For folks traveling to Baja, their lipped diving lures have proven VERY effective and are one of the top choices for dragging behind a panga. If you are fishing Baja, absolutely have a few with you - primary colors for that region include the orange and pink patterns. Locally for SoCal the mackerel patterns and purple & black are proven performers.

MirrOrlures are partially assembled in Costa Rica, Designed, Molded, Packaged and Tank Tested in the USA.

Our selection of MirrOlures includes the old favorite deepwater trolling 113MR and their newer deeper diving 111MR. The 111 needs no tuning and always runs true. Both of these deep diving trolling lures offer exceptional stability for use at realistic speeds, and they carry some weight as well. These are some of the deepest diving, most stable lures made.

ESCA
FREE ESCA LURE PACK
with purchase

They're Back! The Original Award Winning Saltwater Powered Bio Light. Accept no imitations, these are the real deal, no batteries needed, powered by saltwater!

ESCA
I first came across this product at ICAST several years ago. I was very much interested, but at that point there was no way for me to bring the piece into this country. They're based in Norway, and it would have been a pain in the keester to import 'em. I've been following them ever since, and fishing the sample they provided me. They also had some growing to do, earn their USA patent... We are now pleased to be able to offer this unique product to our clients. The Esca fish attractor utilizes light and electro-magnetic influences to attract gamefish. It can improve the performance of all lures, imitates natures own lure lights, and adds life to lures and bait. While the piece can be used as a lure, it truly shines best by treating it as an attractor. I wrote this back around 2007, and through 2010 we saw this product grow in popularity with USA based distribution. But, then something happened in 2011. Their USA manager disappeared, they did not come to the ICAST shows, we could not make contact, and people kept calling asking about the esca lights, if we had any...  I'll cut to the chase, we found 'em, we've got 'em, and you'd do well to grab some.*
(Please note, the image right shows the lure with hook, that's not accurate. The esca light comes with split rings front and rear, no hooks.)

There are four different styles/types of Esca attractors. The devices emit either green or blue light, and that light is either a constant fade in and out, or a blinking/strobe. They are powered by saltwater itself, and will work for up to 100 hours of fishing time - no batteries involved. The best use for the Esca device is to use them as an add-on to your existing lures. They have proven very successful for folks targeting swordfish, all types of deeper water rockfish, and most recently billfish. (They have been used in several tournaments for great effect). The Esca replicates the wavelength, intensity and frequency of light emitted by different types of fish and plankton - the manufacturer refers to this as the "pulse of life!" They also create an electromagnetic field that triggers the hunting instincts in fish. Fish will bite, and bite harder! The Esca will improve the visibility of your lures and tackle, improving your odds at getting bit.

Esca attractors weigh 7 grams. They can be used by themselves as a small jig, but they are really best used together with spinners, jigs, iron, and bait. You can rig them inside soft bodied squid skirts, inline, with deep diving lures and with trolling lures. For some rigging ideas please click this link.

 

 

We now also stock esca accessories, their squid and shrimp lures. These hollow bodied transparent lures are made to hold an esca light. Use them with a scent or fresh dead bait and be ready to catch some fish. Accessory lures are packed two per box, no light is included - just the two baits.

Surf Explorer ®  for Casting
Back in Stock

Our Surf Explorer has been updated for 2013 with introduction of a new heavier 30-50# class rod. This is in addition to the  updated 8-12#, 15-20# and 25-30# class for both spinning and conventional reel use. These are very light and rather exotic travel rods designed for surf fishing enthusiasts. Certainly it has additional applications, but it's made for walking the beach and opportunistic fishing. The rod is a four piece design, using the European Spigot ferrule connections. It's 2.7 meters in length, almost 9 feet, and now comes in a hard case for safe transport and storage. The rod can handle lure weights of 20-100 grams. It's graphite and fiberglass constructed for lightness, sensitivity and long term use. The guides are lightweight, but capable of handling Spectra lines. The handle section is a bit long, in keeping with it's intended application, and you can adjust the positioning of your reel to optimize balance - easily moving the reel forward or back on the rod on the spinning rods. The conventional rods feature a trigger grip - these do not allow the adjustment feature. The Surf Explorer rods have a parabolic action allowing them to fish lighter and heavier and still "feel" right, and now you have more choices for the test being fished with the additional light and medium action rods.

Lure weights and line weights: The rods are made to load up best when used as intended. They are light finesse type rods, not heavy surf rods. Their bend is fairly parabolic, do just fine with braided lines or mono. Each model is designed to fish their intended line test - and this really should be specified in terms of drag load, that's a more meaningful specification and predicts the bend of the rod better. So, plan to set your drag at 25-30% of the line test intended for the rod and you will enjoy the benefits of a properly tuned rod/reel match. Lure weight varies by model, the lightest rod matching up with lure weights of 1 ounce and under. The 15-20 does very well up to 1.5 ounces, can push 2. The 25-30 is quite comfortable fishing 3/4 to 3 ounces, with 1-2 being a very nice range. For the 30-50 1.5 to 4 ounces is a good range. That model can do a bit higher but you should note how it's loading up on your casts and adjust accordingly. These rods do best with someone who has some experience and they travel very, very well. They are not intended as boat rods, they are inshore surf rods, and in that arena they represent some of the best rods ever produced.

SUNLINE FLUOROCARBON
(Give these guys a try before buying any more Seaguar...)

NEW 30M Spools in stock, 33 yards, in addition to the 100M 110yd size spools.

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 for many years. 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 in 2015 and was given a sample of the line for evaluation. Specifically their System Leader - Tournament Shock Leader. Very thin diameters, good stretch characteristics, high abrasion resistance are the characteristics that stand out. It's not a limp line (which would reduce abrasion resistance) but still has a predictable stretch factor. The line is made with 100% FL resins, it's a true Japanese quality product, strong in the Japanese market and making an entry to the USA. The line is excellent, and if you do the math you'll note that you are getting four times the amount of line for double the price of, well, Seaguar. Four times the line for double the price, excellent quality, why buy Seaguar???

As mentioned, they produce 14 different types of Fluorocarbon leader! 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.

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 50 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 the other firms FL line! You can understand why we brought in the line, it's a good product and very good value.
(Frankly, I'm fishing Sunline and Hi Seas Quatro as my go-to fluorocarbon lines exclusively these days. Seaguar has competition, and in my opinion they've not kept up with completion, they've been playing marketing games instead. For Seaguar, it's kind of like the potato chip business in supermarkets, come out with so many lines, taking up so much shelf space that there's no room for competing products...and then no reason to have a better mouse trap. Sunline and Quatro are both better mousetraps, that's my take of FL lines these days - Mark)

Love the tweener tests! Sunline is now available in 35, 45 and 55 lb tests. Why is that so wonderful? Easy, it's a diameter benefit for anglers, lower diameter equals less resistance for a bait to swim, less visibility means your predatory gamefish has less reason to shy away. 

We have heard from some folks that wanted to try this excellent line in a smaller spool, didn't want to commit to 110 yds on something new to them (or they didn't trust my endorsement 100%). So, we have accommodated you. The little spools are also easier to take along on a trip, and hold enough line to make up 3 wind-ons, etc. GREAT VALUE, EXCELLENT PRODUCT!
