7/15/2018 
Well, I made it back intact from ICAST in Orlando Florida late Friday 7/13. Weather was nice, flight good, found some great grub nearby our hotel, Cuban (1st time) and Greek (haven't had better for 30 years, going back to Chicago CES days). Ah, but less about the food and more about the show.  I'd say it was an interesting show, good but not stellar for saltwater oriented gear.  There was some neat new stuff, not many new reels - but some of special note. Several younger manufacturers bringing out new star drag reels this year to round out their leverdrag lineup. I made a bit of a post with some pics on the CharkBoard
[CharkBoards]

Spent some time at the counter at our HB shop Saturday, talked to an angler who found a couple dorado at Catalina.  That's early, and I suspect the water too cool to expect dodo's present.  But, I guess things changed a bit while I've been away. Two or three days can make a lot of difference this time of year! We've been having some internet issues at our San Diego shop, so I visited there Sunday instead of updating this page as usual.  I'll be back to SD Monday, to finish up and help out at the shop. Our SD shop manager heads out on a 4 day Red Rooster charter Monday morning, they had an option of Guadalupe Island but voted against putting all the eggs in that basket. Hard gamble, early in the season for Guadalupe, but... Hard call. The offshore tuna are looking better, when the bluefin are on a bite it's great, and we have some yellowfin arriving, as well.

No new specials this week, I'll be back on track next week.

As always, thank you for visiting our Weekly Specials!

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


Billing: Please note, we do things a bit differently than other on-line businesses, in part due to my own concerns over on-line privacy and fraud protection. When you submit your order with us, you will not be asked for your CVC number during check out. You are immediately sent an order confirmation. We will then contact you by phone or email to confirm your order, make sure rigging if needed is clearly understood, stock availability confirmed and then we will ask for the CVC and process your order. We do NO billing online. Best practices for on-line credit card transactions is to never store CVC numbers - for YOUR PROTECTION. Once we process your order and bill your card, that information is shredded. You will need to re-enter that data each time your order on-line. We do this to protect your private information.  I was on the bad end of a fraud situation some years back, twice, $40K each time, over 80K! One was an ACH transfer, the other bogus credit card billing. I'm still on the hook for over 20K, from what I considered a trusted supplier.... You can not count on your bank's help, but you can limit your exposure. Think about that next time you order from an on-line retailer who holds your credit card information.  We don't do business that way. We treat our clients like we'd like to be treated, thus the added security.  

FREE Fed Ex GROUND SHIPPING*
*Free Shipping for orders over $150 (one package, MOST rods will carry a surcharge of $20) shipped within USA FedX or USPS - AK and HI via USPS included so long as your order can fit in a standard size flat rate box - otherwise there will be a charge).  Oversize items, like lobster nets, rods and International orders will carry a shipping charge which we will quote you prior to billing.  Please note, FedEx and UPS no longer want the long rod business. They have increased their shipping rates for boxes 96 inches or greater, increased to over $100!  We have a work around for most of CA, but have not found an alternate arrangement for the long rods.  Working on it...  Reason for the increase, increased handling costs - labor vs. conveyer and machine, it takes a human to move the long boxes without risk of damage...

*Standard Size and Weight Orders over $150 are shipped FREE!  Orders less than $150 are billed for shipping. Rods & Blanks, given their extra length, will have an added cost of up to $20 - this is a change for 2015 due to increased shipping charges from FedEx and UPS, packaging costs also increased this year for longer boxes. Upon placing your order you'll receive an immediate confirmation via email. You are not billed at that time, the confirming email may not reflect oversize or overweight charges or other issues requiring direct contact. We process orders manually, preferring to have a human actually check things over and contact you should there be questions. Within 24 hours of placing your order you will receive a follow-up email confirmation and final  invoice (pdf doc) reflecting your total charges (Monday-Friday). You are not billed until we actually send you your final invoice.  Orders shipped to CA addresses will have California Sales Taxes applied, out of state orders are tax free. During the ordering process you can select expedited shipping if required. The Free Shipping offer applies to ONE standard size/weight box going to ONE address. Orders requiring more than one box will have additional shipping fees for the second box. *(One standard sized and weight box, within USA. If the order requires multiple shipping cartons then there will be increased shipping costs. Within the USA we usually ship via Federal Express ground. International, and oversize/weight items will be billed for shipping and you will be sent an emailed invoice reflecting total charges prior to actual billing. We will not ship without you having had a chance to review the invoice). Hawaii and Alaska shipping will be accomplished using USPS Priority service, and our standard shipping cost policy will apply unless the item ordered does not fit in their standard size boxes. If additional shipping fees are required we will contact you).


Special #1

Daiwa Saltist
All Models Now In Stock!

Daiwa's Saltist series conventional star drag reels have been a hit since they were first introduced almost 10 years ago. 2018 marks the third generation of Daiwa's Star drag Saltist Series.

Daiwa doesn't change products unless they feel they need to, and in the case of the Saltist reels, they really didn't need to make a change. They've been solid performers, great casters, and have established a very favorable reputation.  The update to the reels seems minor at first glance, but we see couple things evolved for the better.  Specs are still quite good for what these reels are intended to do, they'll cast well, have more drag available than necessary, and they are a nicer build.  One thing I quickly noticed, of course my pet peeve, how's the drainage? Are they trapping saltwater internally or allowing for easier cleanup by a tired angler after a day on the water?  How's the freespool? Overall feel???

Feel, well they feel tight and smooooth, spin like tops, and they addressed drainage like Okuma did on the Makaira series reels.  The old Saltists did a great job with four ports for drainage, getting the job done vertically or horizontally. The new models took that design and made the ports about double the size. That's great in my estimation! Gearing on all reels in the series is 6.4:1, quick. Daiwa's conservative with their products, very conservative company, and conservatively rates their reels for use with 12-40# mono, and double that for braid (typical for Japanese manufacturers - but I see no reason to claim a higher test with braid than mono - pressure is pressure...  It's all about line capacity and drag capability.  Given the drag these reel put out, you can indeed fish them quite successfully.  Also, most of us fish a mix of braid and mono.  So, I'm going to suggest that Daiwa made an error calling the reels 12-40# models. Clearly with their drag and capacity numbers, these reels cover lines/leaders greater than 40#.  Frankly, the 50# sill see duty at 50-60# by many anglers, and there will be those fishing straight 50# braid with a short topshot of 30# on the small 20 size.  But, Daiwa provides some guidance. 

Saltist 20H pictured above - as of 3/18 we've received the 15H, 20H, 30H, 40H, 50H - 35H size coming...

 

From the manufacturer:
The SALTIST STAR DRAG CONVENTIONAL REELS are designed with the latest trending features, strong yet compact and light. The 6 reels in the series will hold line classes from 12- to 40-pound test mono and are strong enough for braid sizes up to 80-pounds. The drag system can apply as much as 25-pounds of pressure to the spool. Constructed from machined aluminum, anodized for maximum corrosion resistance, these reels are sturdy and durable yet high performing. The true freespool of this star drag system allows for longer casts under a variety of conditions and uninhibited spool pay out is ideally suited for fishing live bait. The 6.4 to 1 gear ratio is fast enough for jigging, yet powerful enough to put big fish on the deck. Competitively priced for a high performance reel, it won’t be long before you see Saltist Star Drag Reels loading up the rod racks of your favorite local fishing vessel.

SALTIST® STAR DRAG FEATURES:
  • 6 reels designed to hold from 12- to 40-pound monofilament
  • Maximum drag pressure from 17- to 25-pounds, well suited for braided line
  • Built from machined aluminum with an anodized finish for greater corrosion resistance
  • 4 stainless steel ball bearings and a roller bearing
  • Extremely smooth freespool
  • 6.4:1 gear ratio
  • Centrifugal Breaking System for control and longer casts

Early Customer Feedback: Daiwa improved upon an excellent reel... One of our clients stopped in last week to have a new topshot put on his new 35 which was purchased in March. Needed it done, he put the reel to good use the week before landing several schoolie bluefin on an overnighter aboard the Tamahawk out of San Diego. The reel was flawless, great casting, smooth and confident drag performance at both light and heavier levels.  The fish were in the 40-60# class, client's success came when he dropped down leader to 25 lbs and took advantage of the casting prowess of a free spinning star drag and a drag that was smooth and predictable at the lower ranges.

FREE SHIPPING - FREE High Quality BRAID
RIGGED YOUR WAY!

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 existing crop 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 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.

At ICAST 2017 Okuma showed off their limited production offering, blue and silver Makaira SEA reels. Nice looking product, fresh and clean.  At this point in time only the 50W is available in the limited edition blue/silver.  

50SEA pictured below, standard gunmetal and silver:

 

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.

Okuma CORONADO CDX
2018 Introduction!
 

First time I saw this reel, felt it, I was thinking $200-300. I was very wrong, Okuma is aggressive in building their share of the sportfishing reel business. These new reels are a bargain, but I'll hold off on the particulars for a bit as we go over what's so darn trick about these new reels.

Cosmetically, the new Coronado follows the design theme of Okuma's best - their Makaira spinning reels. They are indeed nice looking reels but the beauty is more than skin deep. These are bait-feeder design reels, allowing you to easily freespool a bait. The Azores from Okuma offers a non-baitfeeding type operation with some similar benefits as the Coronado. If you want the bait operation benefit of a bait-feeder, are looking for a capable but relatively inexpensive saltwater capable reel, this is very likely the piece for you.

FEATURES:

  • On/Off auto trip bait feeding system

  • DFD - precision dual force drag system

  • Carbonite drag washers

  • Heavy duty brass DFD and spool shaft stabilizer

  • 4HPB + 1 RB corrosion resistant stainless steel bearings

  • Quick-set anti-reverse bearing - zero back play in handle

  • CRC corrosion-resistant coating process

  • Machined aluminum screw in handle system

  • Slow oscillation system for improved line lay

  • Corrosion resistant graphite body and rotor

  • CFR - cyclonic flow rotor technology

  • Hydro Block water tight drag seal

  • Machined aluminum 2 tone anodized spool with LCS lip

  • Heavy duty solid aluminum bait wire

  • RESII - computer balanced rotor equalizing system

  • 1 year warranty

Okuma's baitfeeding syhstem allows anglers to disengage their spinning reel spool and allow bait to run freely. The baitfeeding system incorporates a secondary micro-adjustable drag system at the rear of the reel to allow for precise adjustment of the spool for bait control. In order to disengage this system, simply turn the handle. The on/off lever on the rear of the reel will automatically disengage the baitfeeding system so you can fight your fish with the main drag system. Pretty clever I'd say. The drag adjustment is also located at the rear of the reel. Check the 3D image to see those details.  Operation of the reel is direct, simple, ergonomic and very functionally laid out for intuitive use at a high performance level. No doubt these are very nice reels to own, and no doubt they are not Makairas which cost many multiples of the price of the Coronado CDX. But, make no mistake, these are very capable reels with performance well above what other manufacturers offer anywhere near their price.

Special #4

Penn International
Lever Drag Reels
FREE SUPER BRAID RIGGING

Penn's newest International reels were first shown at ICAST 2017.  Penn's new line does indeed represent a significant improvement over what they've been supplying in the past. The VISX models compete with the top echelon of long range oriented reels.

The older generation reels were excellent for what they were intended to do, trolling duty. But, at the rail there were other large game reels which killed them. Penn could not compete, that was clearly indicated by folks targeting cow sized tuna on the long range fleet.  Avet's Pro series set the standard back in 2005 and they've kept improving.  And, for those wanting to fish the USA standard - Penn - Cal Sheets got a fair amount of business improving and enhancing those tanks. Then came Okuma's Makaira series, as we were first to announce, the Makaira series reels were game changers for the industry. That was proven fact. Penn went back to the drawing board, hard, and I will suggest copied several design aspects of the Makaira design (pull vs push, silent dogs...).  That's easily confirmed by anyone who does a side by side comparison and pushes the lever and turns the handle. The guys at Penn spent their time well, the new VISX series in the International line-up stand on their own, they are excellent reels.   

I have some concerns about Penn, current ownership, part of a huge conglomerate, vision, marketing decisions... Even with those serious business related concerns, I have to state very clearly that the new Internationals, in the VISX type form, are excellent reels. As a retailer I have some issues with the folks pulling the strings at Penn. As a fisherman, I have to give the design guys at Penn respect for some excellent work. They may be a decade or so slow in making the improvements, and no doubt the Penn designers borrowed heavily from both Avet and Okuma, but the end result appears to be very well considered. The new Internationals are well worth owning.  For long range style fishing, comparing top notch gear, Penn now can compete with Okuma Makairas, Avet Pro series, Accurate ATD's. Penn is back in the game with their VISX series. The VISW's are also nice improvements over previous generations of wide trolling oriented reels. Internationals now compete very well with the best long range reels. And, Penn International Series reels are still made in the USA.

*One point, the specifications Penn is providing had me quite suspicious at ICAST. Their claim of far more line capacity than typical for reels of this size had me thinking they were ingesting something which may cloud judgment...  Well, now I understand more. They based their capacity based upon use of their own line, which is suspect in and of itself. The new Penn Internationals hold pretty much the same amount of line as other reels of the same relative size (their arbors are still rather fat).  Penn played a diameter game on their specs, using a non-standard line for measurements.  And, with respect to the ProSpect line used, it needs to be fully tested in the field (long range style perferably) before I'd load it on my own gear. Secondly, I'm hearing some claims coming primarily from some dealers on the East Coast, claiming how great it is to get over 900 yards of 100# on a 20 size reel. Silly, waste of money. I don't know of many cow sized tuna that needed anything more than 500-600 yards (if that) when appropriate line tests and drag pressures were used.  If you need 900 yards, well, you're probably fishing way too light a line or way too light a drag. Wrong gear for right fish... and a lot of wasted money on braid that will never get wet.

CHALLENGER ELITE
Dual Helix Composite Designs
By United Composites
(formerly known as Graphite USA)

United Composites produces four primary series of rods, plus specialty series like Rail Rods and Boat Rods. The Challenger Elite series are the most reasonably priced rods in their line. The Elite Composite Series of Dual Helix with uni-directional fiberglass blanks are three ply, dual helix build with carbon fiber and then an additional ply making use of uni-directional fiberglass. The exceptional lift these rods attain is a result of the uni-directional 'glass (UC is the only firm using this unique fiberglass in their build). Dual Helix construction provides the hoop strength, the 'glass provides the lift.  Other manufacturers use dual oriented 'glass to gain hoop strength - at a lesser degree than UC accomplishes.

These rods make use of very good quality braid safe ALPS stainless steel guides, lightweight EVA grips, and composite reel seat. The standard build rods do not have gimbals, if desired you can select the C+ version Challenger Elite rods with metal ALPS seat and gimbal and hypolon grips for $40 upcharge as described below. Please note, we also have most of these models available custom produced by our friend Salty Dawg, cost is higher but there are some upgrades.


8  foot rods are available Deckhand style or with reel seats. Pictured is the Deckhand style grip with Turk's Head.
While we do list the 9 and 10 foot models, please note you really don't want us to ship rods of this length - very expensive, very, very expensive.

Challenger Elite - Composite Dual Helix carbon fiber plus Unidirectional Fiberglass. VERY light weight, progressive action - near parabolic in bend. Available with and without reel seat, two versions of most rods, composite seat or dual lock down ALPS aluminum seats. In most basic terms, the CE blanks follow a three pattern build, 2 carbon and one fiberglass.
 

Buy Description Line Lure Wt. Length Price

The rods in the section below make use of lightweight EVA grips and composite reel seats, with no gimbal. If you prefer, we can build your rod with ALPS aluminum reel seat and hypalon grips and add a gimbal butt. Expect a 3-4 week turn around time for this customized build. Rods below all are set up for conventional reels. If you have interest in spinning guides please order below and bounce us back an email and we'll confirm build time and final pricing.

All Rods Below Are Deckhand Style Rods - without reel seat, corktape wraped handles & Turk's head w/sinecord to support extended use w/corktape handle. If you want these made with reel seat and/or gimbal butt, select option above. Typically rods of this length require neither, deckhand style being much more appropriate.

One point to mention, UC's deckhand rods are skinny in diameter than most other rod makers thanks to their unique use of carbon fiber in the dual helix design. So, if you have had trouble finding a rod skinny enough to fit an Accurate 400N or 500N you've found a match. Since the rods are so skinny some manufacturers reel clamps may require shorter bolts or nuts. Avet has smaller bolts, and we have a fix for other Accurate reels.  For some other manufacturers reels you may have to build up the area where you plan to position your reel. That's easy enough, make use of some heat shrink or an extra wrap or two of cork tape. Alternatively, all UC rods below can be ordered with a reel seat. With a seat, no change in bolts or nuts is necessary, but the rod will weigh a bit more given eva or hypolon grips with seat. There is a trade-off in weight when you move away from a deckhand. This is really only a consideration on the 8 footers, 9's and 10's will have more meat at the area where you'll mount your reel so the standard screws and bolts won't be a problem.

Toro Tamer Wounded Swimmer

Productive Lure for Wahoo & Tuna!

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 made the lures 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.

Fliers from Frenzy

Tuna Time!

Whenever I head off to Catalina and I see the flying fish coming out of the water I have great confidence in the day's fishing. When the water is right for the fliers you know the water's right for the fish that feed on 'em.  Marlin, big tuna... they like flying fish! They're at the bottom of the food chain when it comes to a BIG gamefish's lunch menu. Frenzy produced a wonderful flier, the Ballistic Flying Fish.  The Ballistic Flier is perfectly suited for use as a teaser or stand-alone bait.  Rig a half dozen in a daisy chain or spreader bar to really bring up the gamefish.  Another effective technique is to rig one above your trolling lure, use it as you would a birdie teaser.  But, the way most folks use these lures is to tie one straight onto your troll line as a hooked lure on the troll.  They are also effective rigged with a hook and used as a drop back bait. 
When chumming or chunking, the Ballistic Flying Fish can be drifted back into your slick as an appealing target of opportunity for finicky fish.  Worked on top or suspended in the water column, the flying fish has a silhouette that all blue water gamefish cherish.  When live-baiting, a Ballistic Flying Fish can be rigged in front of your bait to add some commotion and serve as a marker to help manage your spread. And, as has been so well proven, a flier off a kite works very, very well! That technique was rediscovered in 2017 by a lot of West Coast fishermen seeking the nice grade of bluefin we've had off the coast for the past three or four years.  That trend continues for 2018, time to grab your kite and go fish'n!

Custom Wrapped Deckhand Plier Sets

Another excellent set of tools for anglers. Go on a boat and check the tools used by the deckhands, might be something similar hanging from their belt...but chances are not quite as nice.  These quality drop forged tools, needle nose and dikes, offer very good quality, and then they are customized by a fellow angler who does some very nice cordwork. With the "wraps" and unique knots, and some sealant to ensure they stay secure long term, these tools are confidence inspiring - and they do look darn good, too.

The tools are not stainless steel, but they will last a lifetime with appropriate maintenance, a rinse with freshwater and a bit of oil will keep 'em functional. The wraps are guaranteed to hold up by the man who produces the pliers. We do have some nylon deckhand sheaths available at our shop which can be added to your order. In all honesty, pliers this good should have a nice leather sheath...

 

 

 

Well, we hooked up with a fellow who does some wonderful leatherwork, AC Plier Holsters.  The fellow making these premium grade holsters does excellent work. These can very well be lifetime products for the fisherman. Top quality leather, excellent and durable stitching.  They are just flat out perfect.  We have these made in both black and brown, with and without tuna spike receiver.

Speaking of spikes, folks have been asking for us to stock this necessity. Dispatch a tuna like a pro with these handground tools.  Like the pliers, they are made by the same fellow, top quality for decades of use.  We have two versions of spikes available: metal noggin and bone-head with headband. Both fit nicely in a guys hand.

TORO TAMER RIGGING NEEDLES
2015 Product Introduction - SAVE $30

Toro's needles have now been on the market for three years and are quite well established. They are easier than others to work with, polished heads on the needles do make a difference as does the more pronounced point in working thru an obstruction.  At the present time, well we screwed up.  I ran out of the medium to heavy kits which were sold at $70, nine needles in the kit.  I ordered another hundred kits, but messed up by ordering full rather than medium kits... So, I'm heavy on the full kits and out of stock on the smaller kits.  Best move we can make is to discount the full kit while we wait for the medium/heavy kits to be made - 2 months out...  These kits regularly sell at $119 and they represent a significant savings from competing kits which run closer to $200.

This week get the full needle kit, 16 needles for ONLY $89!

Image above shows our latch needle, we have made our latch to be a bit more secure opening and closing - requiring a bit more effort - to open. This improvement will reduce the tendency for the latch to open easily in use while inserting through braid, when making a loop for example. If the latch opens too easily then the needle can easily get stuck in the braid resulting in needle failure or much more time spent correcting the problem and starting all over again...if you can remove the needle from the braid. (This can prove difficult and require cutting line).


Light Line Needle Point
130# size Needle Point

Other Manufacturers Point
 

The image to the left shows ToroTamer's improved needle point. the two images right are of other manufacturer's needle points. ToroTamer needles have a bit more pronounced point which makes it easier to begin insertion into hollow braid and the point is more highly polished so it slips through the line more easily. The only drawback to this is that with some harder to work with lines such as a 12 strand there can be a modest increase in the needle slipping through the strands. This is a minimal risk, and easy to correct if encountered. The benefit of our design far outweighs any potential negative in our estimation.

BOSTON BIG GAME FISHING CLUB KITE

The Kite of the Year!  Look around when you're on the big blufin gounds, this is the kite you see being used by private boaters and the big sportfishers these days. 

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.)
