Thank you for visiting our Weekly Specials!
What a season! This is one for the books, and it keeps on going with another push of the warm water from down south we'll keep great fishing going well through October I'm thinking, and longer. This week we're showing off a new Limited Edition Okuma Makaira SEA offering for 2015, Penn's excellent two speed lever drag Torque Series, Okuma's Star Drag Cedros series, Van Staal spinning reels and some dandy lures. Halco lures come back into inventory a couple weeks ago with a LARGE air shipment, back orders have all been shipped and there are more lures available. We've got several other wonderful specials for you this week like Pakula's Uzi, Micro Uzi, Zippers and Mossie lures (impossible to find, but we've scored all there are in the USA and offering quite a value to you...)! Later this week I"ll be taking off on a 5 day charter aboard the Red Rooster III. Last year this was an absolutely amazing trip (as it always seems to be) and we're hoping to benefit from the push from the recent hurricane down south. So, no new specials next weekend, I'll be on a boat...but once I get back we'll update this page and have some video from the trip to share. Enjoy this week's offerings, and as always, thank you for visiting our Weekly Specials. 

Great Stuff,
Mark Smith

Special #1

Okuma Makaira SEA Reels
-New Limited Edition SEA Reels HERE NOW!

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.
 

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

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

And, for folks who own current Gold series reels you have not been forgotten. If you'd like any of the modifications mentioned above, the folks at Okuma will update your reel for $29-59 depending upon what you'd like done.

Penn International
Torque Lever Drag Two Speeds

Arguably the best two speed casting reels on the market today!

Your Pick: SPECTRA/BRAID - INCLUDING 16 STRAND TORO TAMER SPLICEABLE HOLLOW CORE,
or CharkBait Premium Quality Multi-Function Pliers

You choose either FREE offer and we'll adjust your billing on your final invoice which you'll see in your mailbox within 24 hours of your order (Monday through Friday). Receive either the POWER PLIERS as pictured or superior quality Super Braid (gel spun polyethelyne line) or Spectra® (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.

We've been waiting for these a long, long time. Penn's been out of the game, but they are back in a big way with their new reels. The Fathoms and Squalls have been wonderful, and the new Torques have been excellent, but we've lacked the 2 speed option. Heck, Penn pretty much invented 2 speed reels, so why didn't they come to the party... Well, what's done is done and darn it, these were worth waiting for.

These are among the most robust of all two speed casting reels ever designed and surprisingly, they are probably the lightest as well. They feel good, Penn took the time to test them, develop them, and build 'em right. The reels are International through and through, except these are better. They cast.  Of course you have a machined and anodized aluminum body and sideplates, a lightweight forged aluminum spool with line capacity rings, Stainless Steel main and pinion gears, 6 shielded stainless steel ball bearings of very good quality and a QUIET double dog anti-reverse system. That's a very good thing. And, even better you get a sealed Dura Drag system with Penn's excellent HT material. These reels are also made in the USA. The guys got 'em right, and while not an inexpensive reel, once you pick one up you'll understand that these are some very nice reels that won't let you down in the middle of a fight.

Okuma Cedros Jigging Reels (and more)

Cedros Star Drag 10, 12 & 15

Arguably these are the best star drag reels on the market today. If you liked the old Daiwa Saltiga star drags these reels take that style reel in a very positive direction with improved drag performance, excellent machining, casting, the flexibility of a star drag and darn sweet cosmetics, too. While a lot of reels have moved towards the lever drag form, there are reasons to work with a star drag. You can button down the drag without having issues with side load crunching a bearing. Freespool performance is naturally quite good. You can do some fiddling while you are on a fish if necessary. When time comes for casting, these are excellent reels that do much more than dropping jigs to the bottom. They a flawless casters. I'm not sure which came first in their design, casting or jigging - but they do both roles very, very well.

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

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

 

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

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

Special #4

Van Staal VM SPIN
UP TO 500 YARDS SUPER BRAID N/C

VM Spin

The VM Series reel are new models from Van Staal, at an amazing value. Never before has Van Staal had a reel this affordable, packed with so much performance. The new machined VM 150 offers both left or right hand retrieve and holds 350 yards of 30# braid, and put out up to 30 pounds of drag stopping power. The fully machined aluminum and stainless steel construction of the VM150 creates more than enough strength to tackle big, exotic fish, and the precision gears and smooth drag performance make it the perfect go-to reel from boat or from shore. The VM series reels bring the quality of Van Staal to a wider audience of anglers while retaining the performance expected from this prestigious manufacturer of specialized spinning reels. There are no reels on the market which offer this level of performance for anywhere near their price points - no manufacturer matches what these reels can achieve. If you are a long range angler looking for the perfect popper reel, the new VM275 will be a great choice for you!

While the new VM 150 represents a bit of a change from the old Van Staals, it's very likely this will be the wave of the future, reels with wider appeal given the flexibility of the reel. There's a smoothness to the reel that's going to be more familiar to folks used to the Japanese spinning reels. She's still tight, still great for surf use, but smoother in operation, and having a bail has it's strengths as well. All considered, the VM 150 opens up the benefits of owning a Van Staal to more fishermen, and that's a very good thing.

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)

Special #6

Peter Pakula's
MICRO UZI!

Pakula introduced a couple new product series IN 2012, and they are ones that fit in nicely with what we need locally and well beyond. Pakula's Hothead Series Micro Uzi Crystal lures are a small, light trolling lure for use when gamefish are on the smaller bait. There are many occasions for dragging these diminutive lures, and don't be surprised to see larger grade fish eating up small baits. Aggressively feeding fish are opportunistic feeders, they'll take what's available, and if smaller bait is what's around, that's exactly what they will target. From a local standpoint, small lures are a requirement for early season albacore tuna. When the albies are feeding on smaller no-see-ums, two eyes and a wiggle, suaries..., this lure is exactly what's called for. This HotHead is perfection in a little 4 inch by 1/2 inch size lure. The clear UV over clear flash skirts encourage lure visibility and will enhance your odds of getting bit verses any other small lure skirt material on the market.

Since Pakula lures are no longer distributed through Okuma in the USA these lures faded away. That was too bad since they were just getting discovered by folks and demand grew significantly. They quite possibly would have been our top trolling lure along with the Halco 130 this year had the supply not dried up. Well, we made a score, a big score on the Uzi and Micro Uzi lures. They are back...though not for a long time unfortunately. Once these lures are gone, it's going to be darn hard to find 'em again. But, for now we have them in all flavors, in both sizes and we have a dandy deal for you as well...

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!

 

Buy Description Price

15_ZipperThe Zipper is our long corner and shot gun special, which will work well no matter how far back you place it. Its straight, tight swimming action will continue in any sea conditions at any speed. This versatile little lure is a real favourite, especially in S.E. Queensland for little Black Marlin. 7.75"

15_MossieThe Mosquito is a true all purpose lure that will run in any position at any trolling speed in any weather conditions you fish. Although it is a tiny lure it certainly kicks up quite a commotion in the water. The Mosquito has become one of our most successful lures particularly in the colour Stinger. 7.25"

CharkBait Yellowtail Coffin Nail Poppers
GO BIG and GET NOTICED!

We are very pleased to introduce you to another new series of lures. Our new Topwater Poppers will impress you with their finish, their attention to detail and their pure fishability. They compliment our Toro Tamer wooden poppers quite nicely, being a bit smaller and made from different materials. You'll note the quality of hooks is good, VMC 3X and use of solid rings at the nose, and good quality split rings for connecting the treble hooks. The lures feature a big concave head, they will throw a lot of water and cause a big time commotion on the surface. Expect to get noticed and get bit.

Like all our own design lures, we eliminate two steps of the mark-up process by bringing these directly to the market. Note the quality, substance and value, you will be impressed.

Specifications:
Our poppers are available in two sizes 160 and 200 mm (6.3 "& 7.9"), with weights of 90 and 150 grams (3.2 & 5.3 ounces).

Those are great weights for casting, and the size is wonderful for most fish you'll come across, from little schoolie tuna and tails to some larger fish. If your intent is to get on fish greater than 100#, then some upgrading of hook and split rings are called for in my conservative opinion. Going well over that size, consider our BIG Toro Tamer poppers. But, for most of what we see, these beautiful poppers will get you some fish. There are no better lures out there from any manufacturer in terms of construction and finish. I'll strongly suggest tossing the largest 200mm size now. With the added weight you'll toss 'em further with your conventional reel and won't require a spinner for distance and with their larger size you stand a better chance to land a larger fish!

CharkBait Umbrellas

Dredge/Umbrella Rigs - 1/2 Price

CharkBait Umbrella Rigs!
- 1 KG Center Weight, 36" width, 1/4" Stainless Steel Bar, Squids or Tuna Feathers
 
 
Like our spreader bars, we're using 1/4" stainless steel bars (not flimsy wire), and upped our weight to 1 Kilo (2.2 pounds) on these stout rigs. The bars can be used individually or "stacked" for even greater fish attracting effect. Again, like our daisy chains and spreader bars, we're having these made up with both squid squirts and tuna feathers (11 lures in the spread). The bars are unique in construction, but also quite traditional in design. And, because there is no middle man in the process, we can offer you greater value for your dollar invested. Please do compare these rigs with ones costing several times more. No arguing the effectiveness of both lure types - squid or tuna feather. But, if your game is tuna or yellowtail, our unique Spreader Feathers will be a fish catching investment well made.

Boomerang Tools
New Models!

I've been using the little Snip for a couple years now, darn useful little gadget. The Snip is great for cutting braided lines, and the little one is great for those making nail knots and/or nub knots for their bread to leader connections. Very little chance of cutting into your main line or weakening your connection by an inadvertent chop. All models feature a retractable cable with split ring so you can attach the cutters wherever you need 'em. All have an integrated blade safety mechanism, and all of them cut cleanly and smoothly every time. As mentioned, I have been using mine for a couple years, and only use it for braid. Consequently it's stayed in good shape. These devices will also cut mono, but chances are if you do much of that the cutter's ability to deal cleanly with braided lines will degrade. So, I'd suggest to use it dedicated for one type of line or the other. The stainless steel cutters will hold up well and won't rust, the manufacturer has a one year warranty. The retractable 36 inch cable really comes in handy. So, why the name Boomerang? It's the retractable lanyard...these tools come back to you and don't tend to walk off since you can clip the tool to a belt loop or your tackle box.
