Quality meets Value!

6/25/2017
Getting into prime time fishing, well it's good now but it's going to get a whole lot better. We've got some dandy deals this week, with a new product introduction that's a winner. Okuma's much anticipated Makaira spinning reels are here! We've been waiting almost a year since they were first shown off at ICAST 2016. The wait was worth it. There's a new sheriff town, in the world of spinning reels that new sheriff is the Makaira. We round out the reels with one of the best values for private boaters, the Solterra 2 speeds - also from Okuma. We're also showcasing Avet's innovative 3 speed HX series reels and Accurate's light and compact Valiant series reels. (There will be a larger 600 size coming...). Some very productive lures and Fluorocarbon leader round out this week's offerings.     

Thank you for visiting our Weekly Specials!  

Great Stuff,
Mark Smith

(The Weekly Specials are updated (surprise!) Weekly! Usually its a Sunday Morning exercise, but...
things can change with little or no warning as a result of local fishing conditions,
or wife's directive.)

Special #1

Okuma Makaira Spinning Reels
NOW IN STOCK!

First Introduced at 2016 ICAST - now finally here!

The new Makaira Spinning Reels will put some much deserved heat into the high end spinning reel marketplace.  These new reels have some other manufacturers worried. Okuma focuses on the four D's, design, drive, drag and durability as core performance elements. That's the underlying design philosophy behind all new models coming from this giant. The new Makaira spinning reels are built from the ground up to be the toughest, most durable spinning reels an angler can own. They are constructed from the finest and strongest materials available. Just as the Makaira conventional reels turned the industry on it's head, so too will these new spinning reels, for good reason:

- Forged aluminum machine cut body/sideplates
- Forged aluminum machine cut Cyclonc Flow rotor
- Forged stainless steel main gear for power and strength
- Oversized 17-4 grade stainless steel spool shaft - less flex
- Precision machine cut stainless steel pinion gear
- Hydro Sealed Body and Dual Force Drag system for maximum protection
- Carbonite high output drag with Cal's drag grease on full DFD
- Customized Pre-set drag system, works like a lever drag reel
- 9HPB - 1 RB all corrosion resistant stainless steel bearings
- Dual anti-reverse system for maximum strength and reliability
- Quick-Set stainless steel German anti-reverse roller bearing
- CRC corrosion-resistant coating process
- Machined aluminum 2 tone anodized spool with LCS lip
- Machined aluminum screw in handle arm for added strength
- Right and Left hand models use different handles, greater security and strength, for user flexibility
- Heavy duty, solid aluminum bail wire with manual trip
- Machined aluminum handle knob: custom options will be available

- Last but not least, Makaira Spinning reels are backed by a 5 year limited warranty!

Those are some serious features, and they don't tell the full story about these all machined aluminum framed, sideplate, rotor, spool beasts. These are powerful spinning reels like none other on the market - they are more like tanks than coffee grinders! Okuma took the fine points of their industry leading Makaira conventional reels and put 'em on a spinning! The Makaira drag system is unique, takes advantage of the complete surface area of the carbon fiber drag washers; making full contact with the carbon washers for maximum efficiency and drag output. The DFD (dual force drag concept) applies pressure to both sides of the spool in order to maximize use of the available surface area. Enlarging the working surfaces of the drag system dramatically improves heat dissipation. These reels are engineered to withstand the harshest conditions the ocean can offer. Makaira spinning reels have 23 different oil retaining o-rings and gaskets, water tight, all the internal mechanisms are sealed and protected from salt. The result is the best-of-the-best when it comes to big game fishing reels.

The spools are made for braid, non-slip (however we'll still treat the spool as we normally do to ensure no-slipping). Note the "pre-set" for the drag system at the top of the spool, similar to conventional leverdrags. Also, these reels are available for left OR right hand retrieve. All one really needs to do to change is to order the alternate handle and swap sides for the crank cover - easy and strong. (Unlike inexpensive reels that allow for an easy change, there's an inherent weakness which Okuma avoids in their design.)

Special #2

Okuma Solterra SLX
Single & 2 Speeds
FREE SUPER BRAID SPOOLING!

2016 INTRODUCTION
Two Speed Reels

Well, here's another series of reels from Okuma that offer folks a very nice alternative, good quality at a very good price point. The Solterra line of lever drag reels are nothing less than a great value, coupled to a very strong performing reel. There are single speed and Two Speed reels in this line. For this weeks special we're showing off the two speeds, and offering free braid rigging included in their price. Okuma introduced an update to these popular reels at ICAST 2015, which became available in 2016. The cosmetic upgrade was significant, the reels are much better looking. But, that's on the outside, inside they have done some updating as well. All in all, these are very nice reels, especially for the private boater who typically doubles up on the gear. There are no better two speed reels made for the money! Priced from $220 to just under $300, the value is awfully strong, and this week we sweeten the deal with free rigging - including Super Braid. Outfitting a boat, need some new two speeds? The Solterra's deserve a solid look, no doubt about that. Solterra models offer a one year parts and labor warranty.

Avet HX Raptor Three Speeds
IN STOCK!

Three Speed Reels

Avet has added two new models to their Raptor lineup. Both the HX and HX Raptor now have a new option, three speeds! Gearing is well thought out, faster on the top end, powerful in the midrange and a stump pulling 1/3:1 on the low gear. Raptors represent Avet's best effort, dual drag, high drag capability, excellent freespool performance for superior casting, magnetic cast control (on the HX not HXW), harness lugs, progressive ramp for the lever... Of course, like all Avet reels the new HX Raptor 3 speeds are made from machined aluminum, anodized for long term durability, carbon fiber drag material...

 

Standard Avets are great reels, the Raptors take the performance to the next level, and now with three speeds the versatility increases. The lower low gear will prove a huge advantage when dealing with a larger fish, and the faster high gear will improve jigging effectiveness. Reels have just arrived to our shop, most colors are here now, with some not completed (green, orange, purple, camo). We have silver, red, blue, black and gunmetal at present. Gold colored reels have also been completed, will be arriving later in the week. Reels are in stock now and available for speedy delivery. (Pictured above HX in blue, HXW in Gunmetal)

Special #4

ACURATE Valiant
-New Micro Reels with Mega POWER!

Accurate's newest fishing reel is the Valiant, a very interesting micro small model with mega power. Overseas Micro-Jigging has become a popular method for catching fish. Small jigs, fished vertically on rods with VERY light action can produce a catch when other methods won't do squat. In areas that have been "fished out" folks are catching fish they'd have missed without this method employed. Whether or not that's a positive step in overfished waters is not the point, the method is important and useful even in abundant waters, and the innovations in fishing technology used can be applied to different applications. In Mico-Jigging the fisherman works very small jigs, similar to how one should fish knife jigs (and similar iron) on parabolic rods matched to the jig weight for best action. Then, once hooked up the angler points the rod directly at the fish and uses the reel's power to crank in the fish. There's a certain amount of finesse and a certain measure of raw power employed in fishing this method. All the stress of the fight is handled by the reel, not the rod. Here, rather than Asia, micro-jigging may not become the rage, however the concept of taking larger fish on smaller gear is something we have all learned to love, and no doubt Accurate wrote the book on that pursuit.  Taking that style of fishing, dropping down to much lighter jigs and rods is what folks are doing in this new method of catching fish. Having a reel small enough to balance out on the rod and yet powerful enough to fight the fish is the key. Power is critical, and the new Valiant from Accurate combines superior power to exceptionally light weight - 9.9 ounces!

For 2016/17 Accurate further develops the Valiant project with more sizes, the 400 in single and two speed versions, and 500 in standard and narrow widths - and again in both single and two speed form.  Expect to see a 600 size at ICAST time this summer. At that point, the folks at Accurate will do some deep thinking about the Boss series of reels, the Valiants may indeed replace the more traditional dual drag design. Do not expect to see any changes to the Dauntless or Fury series, but the Valiant may very well replace the BX series.

(Weight: V300-9.9 oz, V400 14.1oz, V400II 15.65oz, V500N 14.4 oz, V500NII 15.9 oz, V500 16.25 oz V500II 17.6 oz)

The 500 sized Valiant's work well with 50# braid, offering 350+ yards on the narrow and 450+ on the standard width reels. Depending upon the braid used, hollow verses solid, 8 or more strands verses 4, it's possible to gain capacity. The upgrade lines (we include those options at no additional charge) move the reels into the 400 and 500 yard mark (100% braid 12 or 16 strand hollow-core or 8 strand solid). For most casting applications, it's best to work with a leader of 50 yards or greater (certainly cover your casting distance).

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.

Offer includes FREE BRAID RIGGING - Both hollow core 12 and 16 strand or "solid" 4 and 8 strand lines.

Hard to Find Iron - Wonderful to Fish
And, a new name too!

Could be the Hottest Surface Iron Made!
In 2016 these new jigs got a lot of play, especially those near our San Diego shop.*  They're made in the San Diego area, and the small company behind them can only supply a few shops, luckily we're one of 'em. Over 2016 we've not been able to keep the jigs in stock at either our shops. (They were sold under a different tradename until this year).  Frankly, our San Diego shop would sell through the inventory before we could bring our share up north.  Supply has not kept pace with demand. And, that surprised me despite the push from Eric, Manager at our San Diego shop to "get 'em in here FAST!" I had a hard time with the price, darn expensive even if these jigs very well made jigs. The rational I guess is simply that for the dedicated iron tossers, they might very well buy a half dozen jigs, and then find 2 that are perfect swimmers. In the case of these irons, every one of 'em swims right, and it's guaranteed.

Unique jigs, all CNC made, all made to swim perfectly - guaranteed by the manufacturer. Again, these are CNC made, each is exactly the same so they really should all swim well. That's really key to iron, not all are the same, not all swim as well as expected. That's a function of manufacture. As one would expect, a sand cast jig will vary more than something CNC'd. Unlike some jigs, Tady for instance, the oct-10'S are entirely made here in the USA. A good deal of time went into their design, and it shows. I want you to look at the images closely. Note the way the jigs are ground for their rings, also the nose and the hips. You will note one sharp side, one softer and the hips are not even. This stuff is not done for fun, the jigs are made to swim perfectly and what they've done in design ensures that they have a great kick. These are almost like tossing a Tady C - anyone can fish 'em, easy to make 'em swim on the surface, surefire swimmers, each and every one of them. But, they gain the mass of a 45 for longer casts and better kick. Weight of the jigs is 3.45 oz, 98 grams. Price for these jigs is $35, we offer them for $30. Good luck finding these jigs let alone finding 'em for a better price.

Click on the images and you can see a few of the unique things done in creating these jigs. Note the way the jigs are made, the machining of the area where the hook or ring goes resulting in MORE SWING & action. The jigs are not smooth, they have texture which adds a bit of drag in the water when you wind quickly - more attention getting action.

Reality check - demand has outpaced supply on these lures.  We were only able to offer these jigs on-line once or twice in 2016, in late fall, as Weekly Specials. There simply wasn't sufficient supply to post them on our website, the inventory we received was only available at our shops - and that was very limited. Almost all arriving stock has gone to fill backorders. At present we do have some inventory, it will not last and I honestly think we'll have sold out of these jigs before folks note that they are posted here this week. So, anticipate a backorder as we get later in the week, plan on a back order towards the end of the week. But at least you'll get yours and we're not keeping this jig a secret from our on-line visitors any longer. For 2017 the manufacturer tells us that he will do a better job supplying these jigs. Our manager from the San Diego shop actually put him in contact with another machinist, another machine shop to CNC the jigs. So, we probably have an inside track for supply this year.   Understand, these jigs are all made from machining aluminum, not cast pot metal or zinc, nor are they imported in mass from China - they are made here in the USA, one at a time. The process takes time, machining time, and that was the problem in 2016 - only so many could be made. They still have high cost given their production, but every single one of them swim right and swim better than competing surface irons, and they won't break if they slam against the deck.

Yo-Zuri Sashimi Bonita

Yo-Zuri's Bonita lures have had some changes over the years, all positive steps in the lure's development. The current series posted here now represents their best efforts, and recognizes that pricing is an important consideration just as is the build quality, rigging and overall construction of lures like this. Knowing that the target species is wahoo, a fish with an incredible bite and razor sharp teeth, Yo-Zuri improved the materials used several years back. The new material is harder than most such lures  (Power Body). In the past Bonitas and Marauders were made with compressed foam which was prone to degradation with use. These lures are thru wired for strength and security, and they feature ball bearing stainless steel swivels to the hooks - which are also flat forged stainless steel. The color change technology which Yo-Zuri introduced in 1212 is maintained, only for the top of the lure. That feature has no real world appeal to fish in my humble estimation, but it's trick to see. That was a huge talking point with the prior generation, now it's downplayed - and that makes some sense since I've never noticed a wahoo approach the bait at 10 knots from two different directions before making it's mind up about eating a bait or lure. There was little if any benefit from the feature other than adding cost, so it's basically gone. Additionally, the ribbing which had to be incorporated made the lure's body rough, not smooth. For best hooksets some feel that the more slippery body allowed the lure to slide through the 'hoo's mouth allowing for a better hook up rate. I'd tend to agree with that thinking. Rigging is done correctly, with quality components, material used for the lure's body is also top notch. And, for the new lures, pricing is far more aggressive with costs of $29-39 rather than $55! The 2016 Bonita lures are just what we like to see, nice quality, good materials, and they are very well priced.

Comment: in 2015 one of the better skippers of Long Range boats, Roy Rose of the RP, noted that Braid Marauders were failing and were no longer thru-wired. This is critical for lures intended for larger grade fish. Braid Marauders used to own the LR trolling spots, now the Bonita increasingly dominates this position (...as has now been found out by guys who fished Halco poppers for the big bluefin we've had off our coast this year. No thru-wire = no caught fish, just heartbreak. This is the reason we did not offer the Halco popper over the past few years. The lure is of a good design but lacks a key and necessary feature for our kind of fishing. This failure may be why there haven't been too many Marauders available from Braid for the past year +. The Bonita now owns the long range wahoo trolling positions. They are durable, well rigged, the hooks won't fall out..., they track straight as a nail and hold their position in the spread, and they do get bit. If you own an old Braid, fish it and have confidence. Once you loose those, as I did a year ago, replace with the Bontia. You will be impressed with how much better the newer designed lures really are these days.

Toro Tamer Poppers

Toro Tamer'S Topwater Poppers are BACK in stock! The big one, the 200 MM size sold out at the beginning of summer 2016 given the huge bluefin bite we had on the West Coast. Over 1000 of these lures were sold, and they proved VERY effective given their construction. Now, they are back in stock, in time for long range season!

The new Toro Tamer Topwater Poppers are now in stock! This 2015 new product introduction incorporates some excellent new features. Similar to the CB Poppers we've offered for a few years, these new surface lures improve upon the original design. The head is round rather than triangular, the results are greater splash - especially if you are fishing from a larger boat which is higher to the water line, such as a long range boat out of San Diego. The improved "pop" or splash allows the lure to be worked more effectively. Additionally, the new lures are available in three sizes 200mm (8"), 160mm (6.3") and a new smaller 120mm size (4.8"). The larger sizes have proven very effective for tuna and the new small size will find great success for those fishing from the beach for Rooster fish, stripers and many other species where a slightly smaller and lighter lure proves effective. Lastly, the new lures feature a change in hooks. The two larger size lures incorporate VMC in-line single hooks, the smaller 120 size popper makes use of trebles.

Specifications:
The new poppers are available in three sizes 120, 160 and 200 mm (4.8", 6.3" & 7.9"), with weights of 50, 90 and 150 grams (1.5, 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. There are no better lures out there from any manufacturer in terms of construction and finish. If you don't agree upon seeing these lures, I'll be glad to cover their return - I'm that confident of 'em. They are far nicer than the Braid pieces, nicer than YoZuri's, better weight distribution than anything from any major manufacturer - and they are tough!

Tormenter
Big Mouths Belong on a Boat!

The Big Mouth is another proven design from Tormenter, at a truly exceptional value. It's a true Abalone head lure in a chugger design, with a huge concave head for greater commotion on the surface. Big splashes, big attention, voracious strikes! Eleven inches in length and 1.5 inches in diameter, this lure gets noticed and is well worth running. Consider running one right down the middle with swimmers tighter on the corners.

I don't know of a better value in a quality trolling lure. The pre-rigged models feature a stainless hook and is rigged on Momoi Diamond 200# line.

The lures are available rigged and unrigged.

Catchy Tackle Spinner Jets

 

These lures are something to get excited about. I sure did back in 2002 when I first saw and fished the lures. Actually I didn't add them to our inventory until I started hearing from friends.  Tim Chen was the first guy to mention the lure to me.  He had great success with their wahoo lures on a 10 day trip a few years ago. (He was also kind enough to drop some of the wahoo over to my place after his trip.) Tim, caught far more than his share, casting the lure forever on a Seeker 6470 with a Newell 533.  Between the flash and bubble trail produced by the spinner, the lures were HOT!  That was over 10 years ago, and the lures have been catching more than their share ever since their introduction.

After Tim's wahoo success, I started hearing about the lures from the folks targeting tuna.  I know of one boat that wouldn't let their passengers use the product on their trolling rotations.  (Party boats don't want one lure to get all the attention on a rotation.   I wrote about that private boat contrast on my Last Trip report this summer...again back in 2002.)   That was all I needed to hear to realize I needed to find the $ to bring in the line. These things will get some attention. Well, I did bring the lures in, and they've been one of our most popular lures for tuna ever since.

catchy4.jpg (367072 bytes)The Catchy Spinner Jets and Bombs feature an inline spinner, on ball bearings front and rear.  The lures are well put together, call it overkill. They are made of a chrome plated brass, stainless balls for the bearings. They are available in several weight and size configurations.  That's great if you're trying to take advantage of faster trolling, or working a bit more of the water column.  Maintenance is easy, just flush and go. The lures also have some excellent skirts to complete the product, and they're the right patterns too. The lure will produce on a wide variety of gamefish. Tuna, marlin, makos (in the 16 and 26 oz sizes), dorado and of course wahoo will eagerly jump on the bait.  Additionally, with the commotion these things create, they'll also attract attention to other lures in your spread or use as a teaser to attract a marlin to a drop back bait.  At this point, the lure's a proven commodity.  They work very well.

 


Rigged lures come with double tuna hooks and are rigged up with Seaguar Fluorocarbon.

SUNLINE FLUOROCARBON
(Give these guys a try before buying any more Seaguar...)

NEW 30M Spools in stock, 33 yards, in addition to the 100M 110yd size spools. New 30# and 40# 30M spools...but still waiting for the 130#.

Sunline is an interesting addition to our product mix. Background, Sunline has produced lines for several well known brands offered here in America as well as Europe and Oceana for many years. As a company, they are actually very large, the largest line only manufacturer in the world! Pretty funny that no one knows 'em except those in the business, but we've all probably fished their line. Their lines are made in Japan, to very high standards. They produce mono, Fluorocarbon (14 different types!), braided lines - nothing but line and pretty much anything considered fishing line. Their FL lines have gained some significant success, and they are reaching out to the saltwater community next. Under their own brand name they've been moving forward quite well in the bass community, with many top performing angers using their FL lines and other products as well, Aaron Marten won at Havasu fishing their line, 1st, 2nd and 4th place angers on the B.A.S.S. tournament trail are fishing their FL lines, etc. Some of the top names in pro bass fishing use their lines exclusively, and that says something. I met these folks at ICAST in 2015 and was given a sample of the line for evaluation. Specifically their System Leader - Tournament Shock Leader. Very thin diameters, good stretch characteristics, high abrasion resistance are the characteristics that stand out. It's not a limp line (which would reduce abrasion resistance) but still has a predictable stretch factor. The line is made with 100% FL resins, it's a true Japanese quality product, strong in the Japanese market and making an entry to the USA. The line is excellent, and if you do the math you'll note that you are getting four times the amount of line for double the price of, well, Seaguar. Four times the line for double the price, excellent quality, why buy Seaguar???

As mentioned, they produce 14 different types of Fluorocarbon leader! The System Leader is a unique blend, designed to offer fishermen specific features:

  • ●The evolution of a new concept: 100% fluorocarbon leader. Non-stress spooling to avoid crushing or flattening of the line. Comes in 30m/100m spools ideal for offshore trips.

  • ●Balanced design is line weight specific: emphasis on suppleness and minimum interference on lure movement to light game lines, and a focus on hardness and the ruggedness to withstand abrasion and strong, sharp teeth to the limit for big game lines.

  • ●TRP (Triple Resin Processing) to outstanding abrasion resistance against rocks, debris, weeds, and the fish’s body.

  • ●Knot strength has been boosted for lightweight lines designed for light game, since these lines are often tied in uni knots or blood knots. Now you can use a much thinner leader than was previously possible – be prepared to get more hardness and tenacity so the line would not be cut by PE lines or the eye of your lure.

  • ●Super PE Shift! Designed with enhanced surface hardness for strengthening knots made with super PE lines like PE Jigger 8 HG and Deep One. No more problems with your braid cutting into your leader.

For anglers running straight Fluorocarbon leader on top of braid, this line was developed for just that purpose. That is it's intent, though it certainly can be used in shorter lengths. Most will run 25 feet to 50 yards as a topper above the braid. Spool size is 100 meters, 110 yards - NOT FEET! Do the math, it's priced quite well, enough so that it should embarrass one well known supplier quite clearly. My gosh, 110 yards of this excellent product runs less than 50 yards of the other firms FL line! You can understand why we brought in the line, it's a good product and very good value.
(Frankly, I'm fishing Sunline and Hi Seas Quatro as my go-to fluorocarbon lines exclusively these days. Seaguar has competition, and in my opinion they've not kept up with completion, they've been playing marketing games instead. For Seaguar, it's kind of like the potato chip business in supermarkets, come out with so many lines, taking up so much shelf space that there's no room for competing products...and then no reason to have a better mouse trap. Sunline and Quatro are both better mousetraps, that's my take of FL lines these days - Mark)

Love the tweener tests! Sunline is now available in 35, 45 and 55 lb tests. Why is that so wonderful? Easy, it's a diameter benefit for anglers, lower diameter equals less resistance for a bait to swim, less visibility means your predatory gamefish has less reason to shy away. 

We have heard from some folks that wanted to try this excellent line in a smaller spool, didn't want to commit to 110 yds on something new to them (or they didn't trust my endorsement 100%). So, we have accommodated you. The little spools are also easier to take along on a trip, and hold enough line to make up 3 wind-ons, etc. GREAT VALUE, EXCELLENT PRODUCT!
