Welcome to our Weekly Specials.
It's so nice to have options...
Fishing continues to quite interesting out here on the left coast. Still great bluefin fishing available, poppers still accounting for the best catch rate in comparison to bait and iron. That can change... Yellowtail fishing also looking darn good. Seems to me, it must be summer! The fishing is good, weather warm and pleasant, I can well understand why the fish are feeling frisky and cooperative - it's SUMMER! Offshore options, inshore options, surf fishing, lots of motivations to grab a rod and a reel and get to "work." This week's specials appeal the that eclectic range from inshore to offshore fishing with gear that covers those bases well. 

Thank you for visiting our Weekly Specials!  

Great Stuff,
Mark Smith

RainShadow
New Product Introduction - RCJB10H JIGSTICK!

Last year we began having RainShadow blanks custom wrapped by SaltyDog (Bill Havens). Wonderful rods, great custom build, and excellent values. A month ago, noting what was happening down San Diego way with the bluefin eating poppers and surface iron, we took advantage of a new blank from RS - a 10 foot jigstick (that travels like a seven footer). This blank is somewhat similar to a United Composite piece that's long been the favorite Ulua blank, similar two piece blank into handle design. In keeping with the size of these bluefin, perhaps covering some of the same territory as the old Seeker Ulua rod (and I do mean the old version prior to sale of Seeker a couple years ago) this is a rod made for heavy line. The RCJB10H is a 50-100# piece, 10 feet long, 2 piece rod. It's stout, has a wonderful bend when loaded up, and can cast a mile (or darn close to that). Components are all ALPS, guides are just fine with braided lines, even the coarse stuff. Rather than making use of cork tape, these rods feature sine cord wraps for the handle section - more durable than cork tape, with good feel and a secure grip, too!

It's always interesting fishing out of San Diego. You will find guys fishing the party boats using a lot of 10 foot rods. These have been typically fiberglass designs, old school. The rods are fat, heavy and represent the best that was built...for oh, perhaps 40 years or so. The new RainShadow blank is a composite, made from more modern materials, carbon fiber with a fiberglass transition through the tip section of the rod. The result is a skinnier blank, nice bend, forgiving, and very capable of pulling hard on a big fish. That's the intent of the beast of a rod. This new rod travels like a seven footer, and that makes owning a 10 foot rod practical for folks from all over the country looking for a long caster that's capable of dealing with LARGE fish. While these new rods were originally planned for the local bluefin bite, they certainly will cover far more than that. I'm expecting some of our Hawaii guys to jump on this one as well as our more aggressive shore based sharkers from the Gulf. You now have the chance to own and fish a true long cast 10 foot rod which you can take with you, just like the popular seven footers. Pretty amazing, an equalizer for traveling fishermen - owning a 10 foot rod is not just for local deckhands and guys living near the boats in San Diego. Now all of us can have the same long cast option as the locals.

Rounding out the newest RainShadow model are the rest of our custom built rods we commissioned SaltyDawg to create. These are indeed some of the best values on the market, custom rod builder favorites, and are offered at prices that take advantage of economies of scale in terms of production. Bill makes these rods for us in quantity, and quantity production benefits anglers with sharper prices which can't be duplicated when built one at a time. One point I need to mention as a caveat to folks. These are custom built pieces, they are not manufacturer made rods. Warranty covers the blank. Should you break these rods you will have a charge for replacement. Don't get too worried, in the three years we've been having these rods built for us we've not had a single break! They are durable, well made blanks (perhaps that's another reason why they are so darn popular in the custom rod building field - the blanks are very durable). Nonetheless, like any quality rod, they do not break themselves. Rod failures are the result of angler misuse, high sticking being the most common reason for a break...that along with showing off a rod's bend to friends who don't know how to palm a tip.

2016 Offshore RainShadow Rods:
For this year's production we've incorporated the same rod series as in our earlier 2014/15 production. The wrap color is silver for the new production. All of the rods offered make use of the RX6/E-Glass series blanks. These are composite blanks, making use of graphite on the lower end of the blanks for sensitivity and relatively light weight. The tips are blended to E-Glass for a boost in durability. The actions are fairly fast, powerful and versatile. Very similar to Calstar actions and blank design, given the transition to 'glass through the tip.


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

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

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

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

AVET 30/50/80 Series 3 Speeds
(New HX 3 Speed Raptor posted - click here)

A few years ago Avet introduced a new three speed reel, the feature added to their 80 class reels. Gained was a lower low, a 1:1 gear capable of pulling stumps, or more accurately 500 lb plus fish with relative ease.  Avet's big gun 80 set new standards for performance in a big game reel of this size.  Going after big black marlin, or for use as a kite reel targeting huge yellowfin or bluefin tuna, this is a reel that will inspire confidence and continue to perform for years and years beyond your expectation. If you are doing some deepwater swordfishing, an 80 properly rigged is a very good option for your most serious fishing.  Big Game anglers have something to turn heads! You can indeed turn a cow size tuna's head with this beefy brute of a reel once you drop that gear down to a 1:1 first gear. Over the past few years Avet expanded upon the 80's with both 50 and 30 class reels gaining the three speed advantage (faster top gear, lower low gear, with a mid gear that packs a punch capable of taming  most fish. For folks heading out on a long range trip of a lifetime, these new reels might be the best insurance of landing the fish of your dreams.

 

Avet's 30 & 50 series THREE SPEEDS offer the same transmission, same gearing as the 80's, same excellent drag and freespool performance as the firms two speed models. These are robust workhorses. The newer 30 & 50 3 speeds are available in both the narrow and wide form. Gearing is wonderfully thought out, 4:1, 2:1 and 1:1. So, you've got speed when you need it. A reasonable low gear at 2 to 1, that's capable of pulling most fish you'll encounter. And, when things get tough, when you hook into to big ones, well, just drop her down to first gear and turn that suckers head and with the drag level these reels are capable of producing you can keep the critters head turned your way! WONDERFUL for anglers, and big time CONGRATULATIONS TO AVET FOR PRODUCING ANOTHER EXCELLENT TOOL FOR SERIOUS ANGLERS.

ACURATE REELS
-FURY SERIES!

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 Accurate's 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.

The Boss Fury series of reels are offered in single speed form with either a 4:1 or 6:1 gear ratio. The two speeds offer an intelligent 3:1 and 6:1 ratio for the 400 and 500 sizes, with a 5:1 and powerful 2:1 for the 600 sizes.

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 up to 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.

Daiwa LEXA HD!

300 Yards FREE SUPER BRAID

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

New for 2015 - first shown at ICAST in July and available now. Six models in the HD series. Two body sizes, 300 and 400. Some significant enhancements, tougher stainless steel drive and pinion gears, AND six corrosion resistant ball bearings (CRBB) plus one roller bearing, custom handle with swept design.

The Lexa HD's take the very popular and well respected Lexa to a new level of refinement and performance, with 25 lbs of drag capable on the 400 and 22 lbs on the 300 you have enough stopping power to deal with white seabass, tarpon, yellowtail, dorado and sailfish (and more). These compact baitcasters can toss a lure beautifully, and they have enough line capacity and drag to deal with most fish you'll encounter. Of course with their levelwind design they make life easier for those doing a lot of cast and retrieve style fishing with artificials. All in all, this is a very nice enhancement/refinement on a great reel and a fine value as well given it's construction. For what it's worth, I own a Lexa 300, I think I've found a good reason to buy a 400.

Models listed below in the drop down ordering menu. Basically two sizes (300/400) and two gear ratios 7:1 and 8:1 with a lefty option on the high speed 300 and 400.

SWIMBAIT FINATIC BY UNITED COMPOSITES

For the Inshore Enthusiast, we've received more of the new Swimbait Finatic series rods from United Composites, the much desired UC 711's are coming off the line. The new production has an enhanced handle foregrip. UC has expanded the offerings of 711's, adding some heavier models to the line in recognition of use of some much larger and heavier swimbaits now being used by some Calico Bass anglers here on the West Coast. As well some of our East Coast Tilefish guys will find the heaviest model VERY interesting for their unique fishing style.  In 8 foot form this is called the TileFish, but here they're going to be used tossing the largest and heaviest lures to calicos, might see some wahoo duty too.  UC Dual Helix designs on all rods in this series. The 711 has almost cult like status for those fishing bass, it really was my own first introduction to UC (in those days GUSA) rods - and the memory stuck. Wonderful pieces, skinny diameters, excellent and well thought out actions.

HYBRID SHRIMP
Hard Bait with Soft Plastic Features
3D Scan Technology
 

Here's another couple of inshore favorites to go along with the new UC rods. Savage Gear makes some wonderful lures, their soft body and Hybrid Shrimp being a couple wonderfully productive lures.  Savage Gear's Hybrid Shrimp crosses both hard and soft bait design into an award winning lure (VOTED BEST NEW  SALTWATER LURE ICAST 2015). Just as realistic as their soft bodied shrimp, but with the added durability of a hard bait. You really have to see how this lures performs in the water, very realistic appearance and action.

The lure comes rigged with a treble hook, which has a magnetically induced receiver internal to the body so only two of the three hooks protrude until there's some resistance from a predator strike. Then all are engaged, and it's game-on! The internal weight system allows the lure to settle and swim in very realistic fashion. The shrimp is a topwater sinking and swimming lure, and with the TPE soft plastic used for the antennae and legs it's oh so very realistic in the way it moves.

Savage Shrimp
Soft Bodied Shrimp

For folks fishing inshore these new shrimps will be a welcome new lure offering. I must say on the frontside, these may be a short supply item. We first saw these at ICAST 2013, received a few in August and finally received our full order. It took 'em a while, and I honestly don't know if the manufacturer will be able to stay on top of this one in terms of supply. But, we have a limited inventory now, and will do our best to stay on top of re-supply. Your patience may be required...

Okay, here's the run down. We are stocking three great color patterns of these very realistic lures. They are all made to be fished weedless, and come rigged with a weighted hook. They are so darn accurate in terms of coloring and design that they look like something that belongs on the bbq rather than at the end of your fishing line. They are multi jointed and have a unique paddle tail so there's great action upon the retrieve as you work the lure back to you from a cast. The lures were made from 3D scans of real shrimp, so they are more lifelike than anything that's been offered before. The lures are also durable, with a tail section that's incorporated nylon mesh to increase strength and minimize tearing from multiple bites. The paint detail is nothing short of incredible. Locally folks have already done well with 'em fishing for bass in the bays, and I can only imagine how our Texas clients will do when they go after redfish. These should be VERY productive!

For tuna and wahoo, these are Great Lures!
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 produced the lures in 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.

Just one more note, if you look at the 'hoo above you'll see that the hook penetrated outside the fish's mouth. That's pretty darn typical of the way this lure will work for you, most hooksets are out of the fish's "beak." That's one reason the lure gets good penetration on these boney headed toothy fish. It's also why you don't typically get cut off and lose the fish & jig. Set your drags for the line test being fished, don't hammer your drag down thinking that's what you'll have to do to get penetration. Let the drag do the work for you. And, DON'T use wire, rig the lures on mono. You'll get bit better, and given the way the lure works, you won't run much risk of loosing a lure. The lure is slippery, will slide through the 'hoos mouth and penetrate on the outside as you tighten down and engage the drag.

KVD Pliers
Kevin VanDam Series
Special Purchase
Opportunity

Superior upgraded offering, specially priced!

Seven Time Bass Angler of the Year Kevin VanDam put his name on these pliers, and that should stand for something more than marketing, and it does in this instance. These are familiar pliers to most of us now. There's a firm in China which makes 'em for many companies. ToroTamer, PLine, Okuma, really an almost endless list of companies using the manufacturers product, marketed through their own channels. Heck, even Accurate makes use of their jaws and cutters. KVD, thru Mustad also produced and sold this firms product, but in a very nicely upgraded form. The KVD versions took what ToroTamer did with the non-slip rubberized handles, took it to a higher level. The entire handle area features the long lasting non-slip finish. That's really what sets them apart in my estimation. The cutters, jaws, overall construction, lanyard and sheath are all as expected, but the handle represents the meaningful upgrade. Cosmetically, these are also very nicely done, two tone finish in black and red. They were made to retail in the $50 plus range. We gobbled up a bunch, offer 'em here for $29.98.

Boston Big Game Fishing Club Kite
Hi Fliers - 5 to 20 knot applications!

This kite has gained a lot of positive feedback based in no small part to it's ease of use and price. Regardless of price, this is a great kite to own for any private boater. They deploy easily given their foil type design, less of a need to run helium to get the thing where it needs to go. The Big Game kite flies in a wider range of wind conditions than most kites, 5-20 knots suggested by the manufacturer. In truth, you'll find these to be the easiest fliers on the market - they do well in relatively slack conditions. In stronger winds you may find yourself wanting the kite to stay down lower to the water and further out from your boat. The other neat thing about these particular kites is that they don't hold water like other ones do. If the kite goes down, hits the water and gets wet it will not detract from it's ability to fly! They'll work in wet or dry conditions. Folks often have added a bit of weight to the kite to achieve their desired distance/height. The kite was made for handling larger baits, and does so quite well. It's suggested that you fly this kite with 80# or greater line. The heavier the winds, the heavier the line for flying - this will help keep the kite flying out away from your boat rather than straight up (and away from the fish). Some will fly a flag off the kite, perhaps 50 feet down the line to add some additional drag.
(Really seems a bit strange to suggest adding drag whether it be a flag, weight or heavier line, but the ease of flying this particular kite opens the door to some fiddling in order to deal with heavier winds and a more vertical flight path. These are the easiest kites to run I've come across. Actually the carrying bag is part of the equation in flying this kite - note the image above. You need a bit of drag, and the bag does just that for you.)

Toro Tamer - WEDGE
New 350 gm size added

This jig offers a weight rear shape providing a bit faster drop with a little less flutter than Toro's Knife. It has with excellent flash on the drop and while jigged. 

The shapes are excellent, but so too are the colors. Useful ones that cover the range you'll need for your fishing under varying conditions and destinations. Lures are available in  150, 250 & 350 gram sizes (5.3, 8.8 & 12.35 oz). The lures are rigged with both split rings and solid rings on the nose. All you need to do is attach a good quality assist hook and you're set for some great deep water action.

These lures have proven their worth on tuna, yellowtail and amberjacks and many other species of fish. They are a preferred shape, drawing strikes when other types of jigs do not, probably a result of their faceted design.

For those who follow some of the boards, or even search some nameless auction website, you might find these vaguely familiar, like a 7 Seas jig that has been sold for something like $30 or more. Please do compare what we are offering, and get 'em before their price gets bumped up. They are on an introductory special! We're trying to get the word out about what we're doing with our line of lures, they are an  exceptional value. Notice the lure in the angler's left hand below, that's a Wedge doing what it does best, catch tuna!
