Daiwa Lexa

Winn Grip 300HS-P and 400HS-P

The LEXA series from Daiwa has been a winner for this very traditional Japanese manufacturer.  This generation featured a nicer handle (incorporating Winn Grips) and improved design.  We made a special purchase of these reels, again stock is limited to what we were able to secure.  For inshore work with bass or offshore light line work for schoolie tuna and yellowtail, a Lexa can be one of your best friends.  Ease of use, predictable smooth drag, with plenty of stopping power, Daiwa's Lexa series is a great tool for fishermen. On this buy we're offering a 2 reel deal.  Line is not included with this offer. If you need your reels spooled we can certainly take care of that for you.  Again, please note, stock is limited to what's on hand.

ACCURATE BLACK & BLUE
Special Production!

CLEARANCE
 

The folks at Accurate made a special production run of Valiant and ATD series reels for Black Friday.  Beautiful reels with a unique cosmetic touch applied.  As a dealer, we had to commit to buying a certain quantity of reels, those have been delivered to us. We have sold thru most of our purchase of this limited run of reels. At this point we have four left in stock, 2 400 2 speeds and 2 50T 2 speed big game reels.  What we have is all we'll get...without paying a far greater price given the special anodizing (+$100 or more given 2 colors). We have offered free braid rigging to our clients on these reels. At this point, we are taking off the free braid, and we're cutting price since the reels are now "orphans" (darn good looking orphans at that).  Regular price for the reels: $559 and $1320 respectively.  That's not what we're selling these for, but you'll have to make use of the drop down menu to see the special price...  (stock is limited to what's on hand)

OKUMA METALOID
5NII LEFTIES - SOLD OUT
TWO SPEED PERFORMANCE
The Best Value in offshore oriented reels, got even better...

These reels represent the best buy we've made in 20 years.  We literally cleared out Okuma's warehouse,  bought them all, and no one can match these smoking deals. This purchase was our single largest buy in 20 years, well over $200,000, over three pallets of fantastic reels. The value of these reels was the best in the industry at their regular price, with our buy the deal became even more of a "no brainer" value that's packed with performance.  No plastic fantastic stuff here, these all metal reels offer exceptional performance and they are all two-speeds! If you've never owned a two speed reel, now is your chance, and once you fight a fish on a reel with this feature you'll understand why a lot of folks consider it essential. To top things off, please note that these reels offer a three year manufacturer's warranty - while the standard warranty in fishing reels is one year.  This is the end, no more reels are available.

Okuma's Metaloid series has been a fantastic winner for this major league firm.  The 5 and 5 narrow two speeds are among the most useful reels a person can own, all metal construction, powerful two speed gearing, capable of taking large fish, and with a fantastic 3 year parts and labor warranty from the manufacturer. These reels were made to retail well under market at only $229, easily $100+ under their competition.  Save $60-70 with our offer on these very capable reels now.  They are rugged, capable, worthy of owning for many, many years to come.  For those targeting larger fish, wanting to fish 50, 60 even 80# lines, the 12's become the reel of choice and the value even stronger with a regular price of $299.

One piece frame and left sideplate, 6061 T6 Machined aluminum frame and sideplates. The reels are cold forged (same process as the infamous bike makers $500 models...), type 2 anodized. The spools are made from machined aluminum. They feature a corrosion resistant coating process as well as the anodizing for dealing with saltwater corrosion issues. All reels in the series offer 4 ball bearings and best of all they offer 17-4 grade stainless steel helical cut gears!. The drag system benefits from Cal's drag grease and Carbonite drag washer. All models offer a loud clicker, and the freespool performance is simply amazing. Two speed reels of this level of quality command respect, ask folks that own them how much they value their purchase. They compete well at their regular price, they compete very well if they were $50 over that price when you look at other reels from other firms.  At the price we have them, they qualify as a no-brainer purchase. The Metaloids are wonderful reels to own long term, easily the best value in a conventional reel we've seen in over a decade...if not more.

Nothing is forever. This was a huge buy, but it has it's limits. Don't let this deal pass you by, and if you have friends getting into saltwater fishing, let 'em know about this offer. It's the best reel deal we've seen in well over 10 years time.

GRAB BAG

Before we get into the lure assortment packs, we have a grab bag offer for you to consider. Upon concluded our annual inventory, found more gems back in the barn, some things we thought we were out of, some things we can't get anymore, some things we are overstocked on.  For whatever reason, it's a good time to clear out some great gear. There's not enough of anything to post on our site, but there's a pretty nice range of gear... So, what better way to do so than by making up a grab bag! You will receive well over $50 worth of gear for $25. You might get hooks, fluorocarbon leader, lures, jigs, teasers... One thing for sure, you'll get a bunch of cool stuff, and we'll gain some space back in the barn.  

This offer was on the Specials page, we've had folks come back for seconds, and thirds. No one has complained that they didn't receive the value advertised. Frankly, I'm the guy plucking the gear for these, and I am going well above $50 on the gear. Darn fun running around grabbing things, and we've really discovered some gems back in the barn.  You'll enjoy, that's a promise.

Surf Explorer  for Casting

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

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

We have a bit of an overstock on some specific smaller sized propacks of Owner's Gorilla and Flyliner hooks. These are not ringed, they are the standard non-ringed version hooks.  If you need some smaller sized, higher end hooks, we have a dandy deal for you right now. Given the recent bite of both schoolie yellowfin down south and albacore up north, the smaller sizes have been in high demand. This is a good chance to grab some at a very sharp price...

OWNER HOOKS

Owner began the "designer hook" business by coming up with a far superior product that combines all the critical features needed by serious anglers. The hooks I carry are all forged (for better strength, and less chance of breaking off), are corrosion resistant, have a low visibility black chrome finish, Cutting Point design, and are super, super sharp. These hooks last longer than your basic bronze colored hook. I've used some for several seasons, and they still catch and hold onto fish, and are as good looking as the day I got them. That's hard to believe, but very true, as you will find out yourself when you buy a few packs and fish these great hooks.  While they are expensive, they also last.   These are not a one time use hook.  They're laser sharp and ready for immediate use upon opening the pack.

CUTTING POINT™ hooks are the latest in high technology hook design developed by the Owner Hook Company of Japan. Unique to each OWNER CUTTING POINT™ hook is the triple-edged cutting blade led by a needle-sharp point that never needs sharpening. The point grabs quickly, and as it begins to penetrate, the three cutting edges slice their way through the toughest scales, cartilage and even jawbones for a positive, effortless hook set.

Owner’s unique triple-edged CUTTING POINT™ are engineered for better penetration. Conventional hooks are typically stamped to a pyramid point or ground to a pencil-type point, and by their design, encounter more friction and resistance the deeper they penetrate. With the CUTTING POINTS™ triple-edged blade, the amount of resistance actually decreases as the hook penetrates. Prove it to yourself by pulling the CUTTING POINT™ through a matchbook cover. The CUTTING POINT™ grabs and slices quick and clean right through the material!

 

Caution: OWNER CUTTING POINT™ hooks are super sharp out of the package and do not need to be sharpened. Attempts to sharpen after purchase removes the finish and may weaken the tempering process, leading to rapid corrosion and soft points.

Owner makes a wide variety of hooks, but for serious offshore use there are only a few that really concern us.  The Mutu circle hook, Gorilla and Flyliners are the standards.  

GORILLA Saltwater Live Bait Hooks Features heavy duty XX strong forged shank. Cutting Point, corrosion resistant black chrome finish. Ideal for rigging mackerel, squid and other large baits.

Gorilla Pro Packs @ $25.88 - 8 packs available at $18.88
size 4 40/bag
 

FLYLINER Saltwater Live Bait Hooks Forged for superior strength, light weight for a more natural bait presentation. Cutting Point, short shank and corrosion resistant black chrome finish. Ideal for rigging live baits, allowing the bait to swim naturally. Like their name indicates - these hooks are for flylining bait.

Triangle Manufacturing

The big Heavy Duty #140 model is one we've put a lot of miles on at our shop.  We have a few of 'em and they've proven durable for years of use, and in our case that's literally thousands of miles worth of heavy spooling of over 100# test lines.  It does a great job with Spectra, will handle reels in the 80 and 130 class just fine.  There are a number of features that make this a great winder, not the least of which is the leveler.  It's got a line counter as well.  This model is ruggedly built, has very good torque which will make spooling the heavy Spectra lines simple and quick. The HD will also accommodate spinning reels and will work with 1#-5# spools of line.  It will not work with most small 1/4# spools. You get a much better motor on the HD than you do on the other two winders from Triangle. Standard is 120 volt for US market.


Heavy Duty Line Winder

 

We have two winders from our now closed San Diego shop available for sale. These are in good condition, used at the shop.  The machines are certified, all our machines are certified by the local govt., representatives visit our shop and re-certify annually. We will not ship these units, they must be picked up from our Huntington Beach shop.
