Thank you for visiting our Weekly Specials!
Ah, no more shows! At least until ICAST in July which should prove quite interesting, no doubt. This week we have a very nice assortment of lures for your attention. New rods from Seeker, the new Black Steel rods are absolutely super and with the new guides used they offer the best value in a USA manufactured high end rod we've seen. There are some dandy reel deals this week as well.

As a side note, I visited SeaWorld with the wife, 6 year old son and mother-in-law Saturday. Nice park, nice shows & rides, but after watching the BlackFish documentary a few months back I just can't look at Shamu quite the same way (nor the "handlers"... you have to see the doc. to get my drift). Since my last visit there it seems they're trying to make a stronger environmental message, with a "one-world, one-ocean, one-people" theme (YUCK, can't quite swallow that concept). But, seeing those Orcas with the flaccid dorsal fins, well, you can't help but feel they'd be better off back in the ocean keeping the sealions in check. Exploitation with a message, it's still exploitation no matter the sugar coating used. A few decades back when I had a girlfriend from San Diego who had worked there part time (ah, good old Sari Pinto, very charismatic young lady as I remember). She told me some sad tales about the animals who were at the park. Didn't leave a very fresh taste in my mouth then, and after the movie and visit this weekend I'm not left with a warm fuzzy feeling. I remember seeing one of those creatures come up to the bow of a long range boat a few years back and grab a 60# tuna like it was a French fry, and then move off to another boat to do exactly the same thing. Smart animals, and seeing them in their element instead of a swimming pool, well, that's how I'd like to remember 'em. That was quite an experience, even better than watching my mother-in-law get soaked during the show! Can't say that I'll ever go back to SW.

Great Stuff,
Mark Smith

Special #1

AVET Raptors!

UP to 500 yards Super Braid - Including Hollow Core FREE!

NEW SXJ RAPTOR NOW AVAILABLE!

The newest and smallest Raptor is now available in limited quantities. The factory is slowly producing these rare, diminutive powerhouses. New new 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. We don't have many on hand, just received a VERY few pieces last week. But, they're coming and if you want to get on the list you're just a few clicks away from being among the first in line for the newest Raptor.

 

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. 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.

Daiwa LEXA!

300 Yards FREE SUPER BRAID

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

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

 

 

Lexa® Spinning Reels Feature:

  • Aluminum Alloy “HardBodyz®” construction
  • Felt-sealed body
  • Strong, lightweight Air Rotor
  • 5 Bearing System (4BB + 1 RB)
  • Digigear™ digital gear design
  • Air Bail® of lightweight, hollow stainless
  • Infinite Anti-Reverse
  • Micro-click front drag adjustment
  • ABS Aluminum Spool
  • Twist Buster II line twist reduction
  • Advanced Locomotive Levelwind for precise, even line winding
  • Lifetime® Bail Spring
Air Rotor made from Zaion carbon composite, the Air Rotor weighs up to 15% less than ordinary rotor designs. Its unique shape reduces unnecessary weight while distributing stress more evenly throughout the rotor for maximum strength.

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

Daiwa Seagate Reels

 

Daiwa's Seagate series reels are basically a bit of a "tweener." They share some of the same features that have made their Sealine and Saltist reels so very popular over the years. The reels are a very reasonable $149, and we do our part to enhance that affordability factor stick by including free mono spooling and free shipping. The new reels have corrosion proof composite frames and side plates. You have helical cut bronze gears for smooth powerful cranking, all at a 6:1 speed. There are three CRBB corrosion resistant bearings plus a roller bearing, anodized aluminum spool, and carbon fiber drag washers. There's even a centrifugal spool brake! Very solid features and specs coupled with a reasonable price point make the new Seagate reels something well worth considering.

Andros 5II & 5NII

- $50 Price Reduction on the Two Speeds
PLUS added incentives from CharkBait!

Free Braid/Spectra spooling or Premium Pliers!

Your Pick: SUPER BRAID - INCLUDING 16 STRAND TORO TAMER SPLICEABLE HOLLOW CORE,
or CharkBait Premium Quality Multi-Function Pliers $60-80 Value

You choose either FREE offer. Receive either the Premium PLIERS as pictured, Multi-Tool with Split Ring tool and crimping PLIERS 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.
 

The small Andros two speed offers a compact design similar in size to an Avet MXL (a tad narrower and smaller). This is another powerhouse of a reel, robust, high drag capability, smooth shifting leverdrag. The Andros is made for fishing 15-40# line, and doing so very well. For 2013 Okuma introduced the 5N, a narrower version of this excellent reel.

I purchased a 5II in 2011 and have fished it now for enough time to give you an honest opinion about it's capabilities - It's one of my favorite reels to fish. I've used it at 30-40# line, and given it's drag I've pushed it more than I probably should. When over pushed in terms of drag things do tighten up, but understand that's greater than  15#'s on the drag scale. At 10-15 lbs of drag, this reel is smooth as silk. The thing that gets me is just how capable the drag is, that's where I caught myself fishing way heavy on the little piece. Probably 30# is where she most belongs, but understand that the reel will indeed fish like a powerful 40# 2 speed and with it's light weight and great casting ability (that cast control works beautifully) you will find yourself breaking it out in most any situation where the casting ability and light weight are advantageous. I don't plop down $400 every day for a reel, this is one purchase I have no regrets over and I've fished the piece enough to know I spent my money well. It is a little powerhouse, and because of it's casting ability and drags you'll find yourself using it a lot. Very enjoyable reel to fish folks.

Andros Features:

Gear Ratios: 6.4:1 High / 3.8:1 Low
6-pcs ABEC-5 rated EZO Japanese ball bearings
External adjustable cast control system
Ratchet drag lever for precise drag settings
Ergo grip handle knob with anodized aluminum handle arm

Maximum drag at Full with complete freespool is 24 lbs.
Maximum drag at Strike with complete freespool is 15 lbs.
Carbonite drag system with Cal’s drag grease
Integrated recessed reel foot design for low profile rod fit

The New single speed models cover the same performance levels, with only the higher gear - no low gear option. They also do away with the cast control feature. The single speeds have a blue spool and minor cosmetic differences, but basically they are the same reel less the push button low gear and mag cast dial. Casting performance, corrosion resistance matches up 100% in use.

Spooling Suggestions: Lots of ways to put this reel to use, my favorite for fishing bait is to run a short leader or simply a 25 yard spool of Fluorocarbon into hollow braid, knotless style (20-40# would be the range I'd fish the reels - with 30-40 my own preference). For the 5II I'd suggest going with the 50# and for the 5NII run the 40# 16 Strand Toro Tamer Spliceable Hollow Core Super Braid. Going that route you'll have over 400 yards available of braid to keep your topper company. You can certainly go with "solid" and a knot, straight braid or straight mono... But, if you run the hollow with the in-line rigging you really have one stealthy rig that will cast beautifully and you will catch more fish, at least that's my feeling...and I own one.

Special #5

TORO TAMER SUBSURFACE SWIMMER
Special Pricing

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, Pakula Dojo or Hayes hooks do well. 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).  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.

Seeker Black Steel
Graphite Composite Series Rods

These rods were designed with the serious Big Game Fisherman in mind. The rods are the ultimate in power, yet are lightweight and durable with fast recoil actions. Seeker’s Black Steel Graphite Composite Rods offer the ultimate in quality components and workmanship, and represent the latest evolutionary step in blue water rod design.

For 2014 Seeker moved away from the Titanium guides, this has resulted in SUBSTANTIAL savings (titanium ain't cheap) and the savings are reflected in the pricing of the rods below. In some cases the price has dropped by up to $100! This makes the Black Steel series of rods the best value high end rod on the market today. The blanks are exceptional, the components are exactly what we'd expect to see on a quality saltwater oriented rod, and now the price is more than competitive.

For those who wish to complete your arsenal with the older version Black Steel rods with Titanium guides, we have a fair inventory on those rods, and we'll make them available to you at the same price as the new versions. However, you'll need to contact us by email or phone letting us know you want the 2013 version rod. Go ahead and place your order on-line if possible, but bounce back an email letting us know the invoice number and that you'd like the Titanium guides. And, of course that inventory is limited to stock on hand... Might be best to call to confirm and lock up your selection.

Features:

Seeker's Black Steel rods are constructed on Graphite and "E" Glass/Boron composite blanks. All ring guide rods  use American Tackle Virtus Ring Lock guides or black AFTCO roller guides, and come with either durable Hypalon or cork tape grips (with XWrap). The Ring Lock Frame design on the non-roller rods prevents ceramic ring loss. They're diamond polished, and braid proof inserts for long term strength and low friction for longer casts. The ring guides are from 316 stainless steel, black anodized with quad legs for secure  footing and stability under pressure. Live Bait/Jig models come with Fuji Graphite cushioned hood reel seats and hard rubber butt caps, while the Stand Up/Tuna models have Perfection Anodized Aluminum reel seats and Perfection Anodized Aluminum gimbal butt caps. The new guides are virtually corrosion proof, given their titanium construction. That's a big step forward for this excellent series of rods from Seeker. Titanium guides, graphite and glass construction, quality components, all combine to create a very nice rod to own.

All models are triple wrapped black on black with gold and exclusive Seeker blue trim. And, all models come with a Lifetime Guarantee and are "Made in the USA".

New Stainless Steel Ring Lock Guides for 2014

Note the Spectra safe guides shown in the top image are the Titanium ones from 2013. The new guides are exactly the same, except they are black anodized stainless steel with rolled inserts that won't fall out, pictured directly above. Rods feature Fuji seats, AFTCO rollers (on some models), appropriate fish decal on most rods in the series...

Special #7

Halco Max 130

This has turned out to be the hottest trolling lure for the tuna bite this year (2012). 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.

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)

Strike Pro EL PATRON
OVER 1/2 OFF

The Strike Pro El Patron Saltwater series lures hits the nail squarely on the head as a large profile lure targeting larger size fish. The El Patron "The Boss" is a great lure for surf casting for larger grade stripers, casting or trolling offshore up to 5 knots for yellowfin Tuna, Wahoo or monster Dorado. It has a superior aerodynamic shape and is balanced with stainless steel balls that provide maximum castability and accuracy. It's thru wired for added security during a long and brutal fight. In addition, the weights act as a rattle for added fish attraction. El Patron was designed with a short lip, and slightly arched back. It's a true suspending lure, so you can work it for maximum action. If features extra heavy duty stainless steel split rings, 6X VMC hooks and also Strike Pro's world renowned paint finish.

The lure is just under 8 inches in length, and weighs a tad over 4 ounces. It's rigged with VMC 8527PS 6X strength trebles, with extremely heavy duty rings. It's made to dive up to 5 feet and it's got enough weight to cast very well.

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.

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.

Savage Shrimp
NEW Inshore Lures

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 but it's been a catch-up game ever since. Inventory is always hard on this one, but we have a good stock now...finally. Your patience may be required...if we run through our present inventory.

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!

Specifications:
Three sizes, 2.5, 4 and 5 inches in length, three patterns offered: Natural, Golden & Green
