10/26/2014 - Next weekend we'll make an update prior to departure on our 8 day Red Rooster Charter.
Thank you for visiting our Weekly Specials!
Before boasting about the current crop of specials, I've got to mention the amazing fishing that's still going on out here on the left coast. I've never seen anything like what's happening. Wahoo in local waters, in some serious numbers - not just a stray fish, there are a bunch of 'em. We've seen 'em, others have posted pics of 'em, logs stacked up like lumber under kelp paddies, off the oil rigs, taken off long range boats just leaving San Diego. Blue marlin, not only stripies but big blues, and we still have tuna and plentiful yellowtail. It's an amazing year! And, who knows when it takes a dive? I'm honestly thinking we'll have a strong carry over of big yellowtail throughout winter just as we did about 15 or so years ago. And, after that we got into an albacore bite that lasted for about 3 years. It's a very interesting year we're having, and the future looks pretty darn bright. Add to that gas coming down, way down with $80/barrel oil pushing our own high priced California gas down to under $3.50, well it's time to do some trolling...and still the right time to get on a boat for some fishing. Even the 1/2 and 3/4 day boats are landing nice fish out here. On top of that, it's lobster season and the bugs are here too. A heck of a lot of reasons to get out on the water folks. Now for the specials, good and bad news. For the bad, we didn't receive all the VMC's that should have come in last week. They'll be here this week, without a doubt, and in quantity. So, I strongly advise jumping on a few packs before this shipment becomes history. Run 'em on the Halco 130's which arrived in quantity this week, and given the local wahoo you might want to run one or two of those on 90# cable... For the reels this week, we received more of the new Penn ICAST introductions, more Battle II's, more Fathoms and a few more of the USA Senators. and the Battle II's are here with more arriving every couple days. We're still light on the new Okuma Metaloids, but we were a bit surprised with receipt of their larger size 12 this past week. I still see these reels as being tight in supply, so I'll suggest putting in an order even if the piece is backordered, stock is flowing with a high demand upon that inventory. They will be a short supply piece for some time, no doubt until their price goes up...and it will I believe.

Great Stuff,
Mark Smith

PENN FATHOM Single Speed Lever Drags
and 2 SPEED Reels!
-New Reels HERE NOW and...
Penn's back in the game big time!

300 Yards FREE BRAID

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

New ICAST INTRODUCTION - When I mentioned this summer that there were some excellent new reels coming our way from Penn I wasn't kidding. Surprisingly we received the new two speed lever drag pieces first, the single speeds will follow shortly. Kind of nice to get the trickest pony in the stable first I must say. There's only a $50 difference in price between single and two speeds, so I'm thinking the 2 geared pieces will be far stronger sellers given the aggressive pricing. All reels have five bearings, good ones, and LARGE gears for power. They have a stainless steel gear train, tough, drilled out for weight savings, and are a wonderful combination of strength and speed. The reels feature Penn's Dura Drag material, offering a special phenolic bonding agent which prevents premature breakdown of the carbon fiber material while providing a barrier to water - less jerkiness on initial start up of the drag, smoother performance and less lost fish are the results of this Penn innovation. These are cast aluminum reels, like the other reels in the Fathom series, and they are sure bet winners. In the past couple years we've been seeing Penn listen, listen well, introduce gear we'd hoped to see from them - gear that anglers have desired. Penn has come a long, long way from where they were just a few years ago, and I'd suggest they've made good use of the time with new products like the Fathom series, Squalls, the new Torque LDII's and there's more coming...

Next up, the single speed versions of these reels also have an awful lot going for 'em. Like the two speeds, you get the benefits of a full metal body and sideplates, stainless steel main and pinion gears, Dura Drag washers, 5 shielded stainless steel ball bearings, a double dog ratchet anti-reverse and Penn's line capacity rings for predictable spooling capacity. The reels offer great freespool performance, and that will no doubt improve over time. Penn is pretty darn proud of their grease, and typically over does it on its use on new reels. As you do some fishing, the grease will indeed even out and you'll note even better freespool over time, and it's pretty darn good to begin with. One thing that's a pet peeve of mine is the way the reel accomplishes drainage. Penn is showing that they listen to what we say and write - they addressed the drainage wonderfully. We can assume that all reels will get saltwater intrusion, the trick is getting the salt flushed out after a days fishing. Penn accomplished that very nicely with porting both on the frame and the gearcase. AND WHAT GEARS! Note the size of 'em! BIG GEARS EQUAL CRANKING POWER, much like a lower gear ratio improves pulling power the size of the gears themselves make a huge difference.

Penn also introduced a reel specifically for the kingfish guys in the Southeast (also a dandy sailfish reel) the FTH40NLDHS. The High Speed 40N offers a blazing 7:1 retrieve ratio - that translates to 60 inches of line retrieve per crank! That's ripping! And, that can help you get bit and help you stay on top of a speeding fish coming at you.

WHAT'S NEW FROM PENN?

 

For what it's worth, a guy can sure cover a lot of fishing with the 25N and 40N. With the use of braid as a backing, the 25 would do me darn well for 30 and 40 lb. lines, then the 40N for the 50 & 60. Nice casting pieces, nicely made. Having said that, I spent some time playing around with the little 15 this week, what a wonderful little reel. Small size, huge gears on the little micro beast for some excellent power. I like the gear ratio Penn picked and I really like the drainage and overall construction. The reel has a very nice feel to it. Sure, these are subjective remarks, but they are sincere. Penn took their time, listened and this time they looked at the right competitors in the marketplace (and we ain't talking about the bike maker). They no doubt looked directly at Avet and they are offering a very nice range of reels that address some of the areas where Avet could perhaps improve. I'm not knocking Avet one bit, they make great gear and they have their share of competing features, but I think Penn found three points to go after and they did just that by addressing gears size, drainage and drag capacity. I'm not putting one manufacturer above another especially since Avet was the firm to bring castable lever drags to the market first and really set the industry on it's ear with their quality and pricing. Avet's line has their share of strengths too (made from machined aluminum verses cast aluminum, 7+ bearings verses 5), but Penn is definitely on the right track and they've found some points from which to shine verses competing firms. Which way to go...sure glad I'm not making the choice, but I can say competition is a great thing from a consumer standpoint and Penn, Release, Okuma and Avet are offering reels that are so far beyond what's been on the market previously as to be nothing less than amazing.

Penn 113 USA Senator Series
Including the 113HN Baja Special, 113 Standard Width, and for our Ulua guys the 113 WIDE!
- New 2015 Models!
Proudly made in the USA!

Special: Free SUPER BRAID Spooling

300 Yards FREE BRAID

The Baja Special is a reel that we like a lot. There's a sad love story behind this reel, a lost love...and then a re-kindled affair. While we loved the piece on the West Coast, the rest of the country was slow to warm to the skinny 4/0. But once Penn announced that they'd not be producing the reel, well, it's desirability increased greatly. But, they were gone, long gone for over  a years time. Penn finally bowed to popular pressure and brought this darling back for one run, and we're hoping to see one run per year going forward. They're still produced here in America.

At ICAST in 2014 Penn announced, and proudly showed off, three new Senator 113 reels - ALL MADE HERE IN AMERICA JUST LIKE THE ORIGINAL 113HN! Penn's making the 113N (Baja Special), 113 and 113 W (wide). All have their place in a guy's arsenal. All reels in this series offer a one piece aluminum frame, stainless steel main and pinion gear, live spindle with free floating spool for great casting, forged, machined and anodized aluminum spool, HT-100's offering carbon fiber stopping power, six shielded stainless steel ball bearings, line capacity rings like some of Penn's other newer reels... All offer 27 lbs of drag with a 4.3:1 gear ratio, 34 inches of line retrieve per crank. Bottom line, the Penn US Senators are the best Senators money can buy, and they are a value given their capability.

Mono Capacity: 300 yds of 40, 370 for the 113 and about 430 for the 113W. For Braid: 600 of 65, 750 of 65 and 1000 of 65 on the W. (though most guys go 80 for the backing on these reels).

Last one first, for our Hawaii guys going after ULUA, in the past Newell had this one covered with 500 series. But, with Newells passing there was a huge gap for our Ulua specialists. Some moved to Avet's HX, but some really wanted to see a star drag as was preferred in past years. Well, Penn's 113W US Senator is now the reel of choice for this demanding application, that's my take. Traditional design, improved production, USA reliability all contribute to a wonderful series of reels that cover a lot of functionality for anglers, from casting iron, yoyo jigs, dropper loop fishing and more. (please note, we've not received the wide version as of the date of this writing - it's expected shortly)

Now, for what we've come to love here locally and for our Baja bound anglers: The  Baja Special 113N. This is your basic, enhanced 113HN or Yellowtail Special. Narrow frame for casting ease, plenty of capacity, excellent drag capability and reliable performance on a star drag reel. While lever drags are great, a big benefit of a star drag is that you can hammer down on the drag and not crunch a spool bearing nor interfere with freespool performance. Simple design, reliable performance under the most demanding conditions, these are the things guys look for when traveling to Mexico to tangle with tough fish - plentiful tough fish. You can't afford to have your gear go down, give up after a couple hard fights and spoil your time on the water. Reliability is a must, and the 113's have earned high marks for robust construction, bullet proof design and consistent performance. In terms of value, the reels are long on that characteristic and the new cosmetic treatment really stands out, in my opinion. The images don't quite do 'em justice. Great performance, strength, reliability, high line capacity, versatility - these are the characteristics the new USA built Senators excel in delivering.

2014 ICAST BEST OF SHOW SALTWATER REELS

PENN'S Battle II

Penn's Battle series was a huge seller for Penn since it's introduction in 2011. At ICAST 2014 Penn announced and showed off the new Battle II...and took best saltwater reel honors for the new line - BEST OF SHOW SALTWATER REELS! The new version offers some significant improvements over the older and still excellent reels. First off corrosion resistance has improved due to use of five sealed bearings and one anti-reverse bearing. The new Battles offer keyed carbon fiber drag washers which increase maximum drag by 15-50%!!! The reels added their line capacity rings to the spool, aiding in spooling and ensures that casts are not subject to excess line stripping and they retain the no-slip treatment of the spool so your braid won't slip upon loading up drag pressure. A very good reel got even better with the new Battle II's.

Release Reels

Release Reels
Just what we like to see, some innovative fellows who like to fish with creative minds occupied in designing a better mousetrap...or fishing reel. I've been following Release Reels now for 2 or three years prior to adding them to our site & shops May of 2013. In 2014 they expanded, built a new factory in Virginia and now are producing their wonderful reels with greater capacity - and we've just received our largest shipment to date. Two models, SG and LG (small game and large game), two different handle styles, high drag, top quality bearings and unmatched drag for their size. They finally have things together, and we're very proud to bring their new gear to your attention. Expect this to be the tip of the iceberg, there are more things planned... 100% Designed, Machined and Assembled in Virginia, USA!


Release Reels are designed for fishermen by fishermen - now that's an old line, but very true with respect to these guys. Like some of our other favorite firms such as Accurate, Tiburon and of course Avet, these guys have a machining background and they took those skills, a dream and turned their concept and applied creativity into creating a new fishing tool for us.

In 2014 Release moved to a new larger facility, expanded their machining capability with some additional hardware and CNC machines and set the stage for future growth. From the first reels we received I've noticed continued improvement in the subtle areas we wanted to see. They added a dog to the bearing for the anti-reverse, improved freespool performance and in 2014 created a new soft grip round knob that's both unique and a pleasure to use.

 

Release SG (small game) & LG (large game) Reels
Release 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 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 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.

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 reels come with a reel clamp that features a contoured hook keeper as you can see in the image above (or lanyard ring). 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. The handle is also something quite special, offering great power and feel. The contoured ergonomic handle is available on the right hand retrieve reels and for 2014 it's also an option for lefty reels, too. Another handle option is the soft grip round Magnum style handle which matches the color of the reels, in two sizes (one sized right for the little SG and one large ball for the LG). There's also a Magnum Ball style handle made from machined aluminum (an added cost option) which is also darn trick but carries more weight - not really appropriate for the SG in my opinion. 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. One thing you will also notice is that the reels do NOT have a strike and full position on their lever. There's a logical position where strike may routinely located above a sideplate (nicely trimmed) for repeatability, which would allow for a logical strike and full position. However these typical positions are not machined or otherwise marked. Frankly, I may elect not to run with a typical strike position on my own reel, one of the other fellows working here suggested simply using a sticker. I'm thinking there are a few ways to play this one, and there's room for individual variance. The gears are made from Stainless Steel, and they too will wear and become even smoother over time.

 

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.

United Composites
New Production of Finished Custom Rods!

For those who have followed our site for the past 13 years you know my fondness for the old Graphite USA blanks. When Peter Williams purchased the company we were enthusiastic, since he was very familiar with their line - being by far their largest distributor (Australian market). Peter had one heck of a time getting a reliable production manager here to carry on work when he or his son Andrew went back home to Oz. So, after struggling for several years he explored selling the firm - he still needed blanks for his market. With the sale of Seeker, new ownership and expected changes in location and production commitment, Seeker's long time production manager Randy Penny began to explore other options. Peter and Randy did some talking, with Peter recognizing the value of partnering with Randy, gaining his experience in production and design, and bt having a committed owner/operator working full time quality and consistency improve as a direct result of having a hands on owner. For both Peter and Randy the opportunity presented with United Composites (the new name of GUSA) seemed like a dream come true. UC offered a range of products well beyond anything Calstar or Seeker could ever produce. UC had better designs for a wider range of application, unique proprietary technology. Their factory which Peter built here in Huntington Beach was also ahead of their competition with the largest oven on the West Coast and newer production machinery. While Peter owned the company we commissioned two excellent rod builders to create our vision of how the rods should be built using the UC blanks. Peter also had a series of rod blanks  specifically built for the Australian market which I found to be the best darn rods for our style of fishing I'd ever used - so we had those built, and that's what I've been fishing for the past six years or so (Challenger Premium CP Series). That's the background. Bottom line, UC's CP series rods offer the benefits of Dual Helix design for the graphite component of the rod and make use of fiberglass through the tip section - gaining added durability (similar in that respect to a Calstar Grafighter but with the added benefit of the helix construction and the highest quality USA made graphite used by any manufacturer). These are the kind rods. Get 'em while we've got 'em. We'll try to stay on top of production to ensure consistent availability but remember we're in long range season now and demand is high.


Alps center lock reel seats on most rods.

All rods feature a gimbal where appropriate
 in terms of test application.


The woven graphite is used on the CP series (Dual Helix graphite with transition to fiberglass through the tip), the US Wahoo blanks do not make use of the same woven graphite in their design (US series are made from Dual Helix graphite). Also, we go about the build differently on the Wahoo. Rather than a traditional grip design we go with lighter cork tape on the butt, add the ALPS reel seat and then go to hypolon on the fore grip - darn trick...need to put an image up, but I think you get the idea - we make 'em for distance casting, reduced weight, and serious strength.

 

Well, UC is indeed up and running. They are now producing more blanks under Randy Penny's expert supervision than they ever did in the past, and the quality of production is spot on - EXCELLENT. So, we have put in a considerable order for blanks which are now being produced into the finest rods available. Bold statement, but that's what they are - Exceptional Rods. We have the CP 70H, CP70HF, CP 70HP, US Wahoo (the US models are dual helix, the CP's offer the Dual Helix graphite plus 'glass through the tip section). In the future we will expand upon these models. The CP series were originally made only for the Australian market, and these are the best blanks, the most expensive materials used within the UC lineup. The CP models make use of Fiberglass in the tip section for even greater durability than the other series from UC and of course Dual Helix construction for the graphite. UC's Dual Helix technology produces some of the strongest rods built, and their actions are nothing short of wonderful. You can see the transition from graphite to 'glass in the image above. For what it's worth, I own and fish all four of these rods, and have for several years now. They are the best rods of their type made, bar none.

One point I'd like to mention very clearly, custom built rods made on expensive blanks like the UC's (which are some of the most costly blanks built). No doubt a $400 rod isn't cheap compared to Seeker and Calstar or even Chinese produced Phenix rods (lots of water there no doubt). The price we're coming to market with on the UC Customs is indeed a value. UC has better designs and proprietary technology and these are custom made pieces with excellent components and build quality. Add to that their use of better USA materials than other competing firms and the true value is obvious (no Chinese or Korean 'glass or graphite used on UC rods...). We're offering these top of the line rods at a very aggressive price. We are working thin on margins in order to put the rods in anglers hands and get 'em on the boats and get a "buz" going. I personally believe in what UC creates, have for years, and given their new owner's background and noting what's happening with both Seeker under new ownership and Calstar's limited capacity I see a very bright future for UC. Frankly, I see this firm being the premier West Coast rod company within two years time. UC has been a bit on the esoteric side of the fishing rod business. Those in the know used 'em, but there was no big commercial push and they were a small volume firm. Their market position will change dramatically over the next couple years, no doubt. They've always had the right designs, now they have production capacity to match their quality.  Compare them to Super Seekers and you'll note they are a value and the materials used in production of these blanks, the technology used in production, their true value is unmatched by any firm. Bill Havens (SaltyDog) is our builder, and his work is very well respected. Frankly, these rods should be $100 more than what's offered here. We're working thin because we believe in the future of UC and want to build future demand and ensure that UC produces their own line of finished rods sooner rather than later.

Special #6

Halco Max 130

They're Here...
NEW PATTERNS ADDED

This has turned out to be the hottest trolling lure for the tuna bite this year (2012, 2013 and 2014). The Halco 130 Max is a cutting edge lure, bibless design. It's great in both a casting or trolling application, and it's been the troll use that's really been successful for folks this year. It can run to up to 12 knots, running at 7 feet in depth. They weight 2 3/4 ounces and they will indeed cast well in addition to trolling. For 2013 the point was proven again on the long range boats and on shorter length fishing commercial and private boats. The Max 130 was the go-to lure of choice. Even I took advantage of the lure's performance, earning another trolling jackpot (jacket) aboard the Red Rooster III on our four day charter in September. These are great lures, and the fish will literally eat the paint of 'em. That's exactly the condition of the lure I was using, most all the paint had indeed been eaten off through previous catches. Didn't matter one bit, the action got it bit. Out performed the more standard tuna feathers by a wide margin.

One point that I'd like to mention, comes from a friend of mine from Australia. Since  the 130 Max swims well both slow and fast on the troll (heck it works as a cast/retrieve lure, too) it's a lure that can save you gas. What I mean by this is that the typical surface tuna lure must move through the water fairly quickly in order to draw a strike, 7 knots or so. While the 130 Max trolls well at speed, speed also uses up fuel. The lures are just as effective when dragged at 2 knots! They swim well. So, while you can run these lures behind the big sportfishers at speed (as we've all learned well by now) they also work well for a private boater who is moving at a slower pace. You can indeed gain fuel economy by dropping the speed down a bit and still catch plenty of tuna with these very effective lures.

Here's some recent feedback from our September 2013 Red Rooster charter
- I won another trolling jacket from the Red Rooster on this lure. The thing tracked straight, gained some depth verses the tuna feathers the other guys were using, and got me a troll fish that was bigger than anyone else's. What more can be said, the lures work. - Mark

Halco is an Australian lure manufacturer, with factories in Australia and Indonesia. They are considered one of Australia's best fishing lure companies, with many records to their credit.

Here's a note from one of our clients from "out of town" who found something other than tuna to eat the Halco...
Photo is a a fish trip 2 days ago. Used one of the Halco lures with the small  pole on the right of the photo. Took my friend some time to reel in the Wahoo. This spot is 5 minutes from the dock.
 
Thanks again,
 Dennis  (Guam)

Given the presence of wahoo locally, you might consider running the single hooks we have posted in the next Specials offer and even running these lures on cable (90-130 lb). We've had wahoo taken locally, they've been seen in some numbers at the outside oil rigs and under kelp towards Catalina as well as other areas off SoCal.

VMC

In-Line Hooks - More Arriving This Week

Here's a wonderful new product that we've been wanting to see, an in-line hook for use in replacing hooks on lures, for instance poppers, Halco &, Rapala lures... A standard style hook puts the ring in the opposite direction of the hook point, great for fishing bait, but for re-rigging a lure it points the hook out in the wrong direction. The new VMC In-Line hooks put the ring where it needs to be so when you re-rig on the split ring the hooks orientation is appropriate for the lure, allowing better tracking. These hooks range in size from 1/0 up to 7/0 sizes and will cover most lures you'll want to enhance. In the past we've used some open eye Mustads for replacement or gone with a ringed hook attached to a split ring to keep the hook orientation correct. Now there's an option that provides a wide game extra strong forged hook which will prove simpler and probably stronger than what we've had to work with in the past. (Pictured left, CB 200mm popper with 7/0 VMC upgrade, Halco 130 Max with 5/0 front and 6/0 trailing hook).

We sold out of these excellent hooks a couple weeks ago, ordered more in very high quantity. These arrive back into stock this week. I'll strongly suggest grabbing a few packs, they are a great enhancement for many lures such as the Halco and Rapala products and many others.

TORO TAMER SUBSURFACE SWIMMER
Special Pricing
(Check our recent video from the Royal Polaris charter to see these lures bring in tuna)

The Toro Tamer Subsurface Swimmer: You may be aware of a similar lure that's been on the Japanese market and gained some following in this country (shibuki). That piece proved effective as a casting lure and as a trolled lure, and cost a good $50 unrigged! Pricing was a function of a few things, among them a good old boy network created by the Japanese firm selling them. They didn't take much of an interest in anyone but a chosen few selling them on this side of the pond. That's a restraint of competition in my humble opinion, and helps explain the high price of the lure. As you can see, we have a broader selection of colors available, similar design, quality built to withstand punishment from the toughest fish. The weight and length is the same as the more expensive Japanese import. We are making these wonderful lures available both rigged and unrigged. The first ones available are the unrigged lures. Our rigged lures will feature quality treble hooks of appropriate strength. The unrigged lures have been used by guys with both trebles and single hooks.

The 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.

These lures have taken tuna, some big ones during our evaluation stage this past season, 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.


Standard VMC Treble Hooks

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

Please note, the rigged versions use 4X VMC trebles. Some clients fishing larger yellowfin over 100# often buy the unrigged lures and upgrade to either 5X Trebles or singles.  Many ways to go with the hooks. My favored styles are shown above for larger fish, the Mustad 7982 HS double tuna hooks (7/0 shown) or the Mustad Ringed Hoodlum 4X  ringed (9/0 pictured).  Another great new option is to rig the lures with the new VMC In-Line hooks (I added the 6/0 size to my own for use on the charter I take off on Saturday, the 5/0's would also have been quite appropriate but I have hopes for larger grade fish...). Lots of ways to rig 'em, or you can take the easy road and buy 'em rigged and ready. Unrigged lures come with the same heavy 200+lb. split rings.

- Since our introduction of these excellent casting and trolling lures, we've added a luminous glow belly. Please do comparison shop, we're about 1/2 of other similar lures and the quality is very, very good indeed.

 Special #9

Catchy Wahoo Bombs!

Catchy Tackle has introduced an excellent wahoo bomb! Their new bomb weighs in at 4 ounces and comes rigged on wire cable  with a single hook (the preference for dealing with wahoo). The bombs also have a nice willow leaf spinner blade attached to a swivel on the hook for added attraction, and a Keeper above the jig to keep it from sliding up the line too far from the hook (a very good idea since the lure will tend to ride up the line after a cast as you let it descend a bit prior to ripping it back to the boat.

 

 

There are three variations to the lures. The standard chrome head version features a double skirt of flashy material. The Gold head and the Black Chrome head also feature an internal Newell Skirt. The Newell skirts are heavier, thicker, more durable and make the lure have a fuller presence when quickly retrieved. These bombs are going to be effective, and quite popular. Catchy did their homework prior to manufacture. The heads are typical Catchy quality, meaning EXCELLENT and DURABLE. Unlike the offshore produced stuff, these are well made and precision manufactured. The chrome platting is all much better and will prove much more durable. The Gold and Black Chrome heads are flawless and will prove well worth the money.

Original Pakula Lures
Very Special Price!

Pakula's Softease Series
The Softease Lures are a beautiful soft headed version of Pakula's original hard-head series lures. These are a soft head lure like none other, crystal clear, with enough give in the head to put up with the typical knocks you'd expect from a thrashing fish, a dropped lure or other catastrophic calamity which would break a traditional head. The insert is extremely reflective, magnifying the light which bounces off the lure's head. They are a big improvement over other "soft head" lures on the market today and will prove much longer lived than hard resin head lures. Head styles and sizes are the same as for the Original Hotheads, the difference is in the head material and that difference is a positive.

Here's the deal, Pakula is no longer distributed in the USA. We secured all the remaining inventory for the Zippers and Mossie lures - two of the most popular models which are perfect for tuna and marlin (when they are targeting smaller baits). These lures originally sold for about $35...and we've got a super deal for you which brings that total down to less than half that price - $14.99!

15_ZipperThe Zipper is our long corner and shot gun special, which will work well no matter how far back you place it.
