THIS YEAR!

2/23/2020 - Welcome to our Weekly Specials, something we try to post each Sunday.

February is usually a slow time of year for saltwater tackle sales, but not this week. Couple good reasons for that. First, the darn bluefin just won't stay away! Locals have been catching bluefin from 60-100 lbs, some from boats traveling back home from Colonet, but others taken as close as five miles off the beach. Good signs from Oceanside up to Newport, and of course off San Clemente there's bound to be some hanging around.  Lots of bait in the water, anchovies by the ton appearing.  So, it's looking interesting moving forward.  Rockfishing down south on freezer specials doing quite nicely, more to come locally in a few weeks as the season opens up March 1. Now, for our news, we'll hold our largest store sale of the year the first week of March.  It's going to get very busy, very soon.  During the sale, it's all hands on deck here. It will prove impossible to handle phones as well as talk to folks in the shop. So, please bear with us 3/4-8. One way to get around the phone problem next week is to have an on-line Fred Hall Show Presale right now!  That's the program, check Special #10 for the coupon code and terms. It's a wonderful opportunity to get a jump on the season's best gear, right now. 

I've been mentioning that #1 son Sergey has been working on a "next" generation (appropriately) website for us. It's now ready for "beta" testing, its fully functional, you can order thru the new site or here. I like what Sergey accomplished with respect to reels, hard to provide all the options we offer within the confines of scripting language. He figured it out!  At present, the new site is on another domain of ours and will ultimately replace this site. For the next few weeks we encourage folks to visit the new site to give it a try.  Profiles will need to be created...and then once again when we fully replace this website. So, there will be a little inconvenience...for which we will compensate you when you place an order thru our new site. This link will take you to the 2020 version CharkBait in progress (CharkBait via AhiAssassin domain). Your feedback will be helpful as we fine tunes things...  Once we're satisfied with the site, based upon your input, we'll retire our old home. You will need to create a new log-in with the alternate CB site.

As always, thank you for visiting our Weekly Specials and hope to see you at the shop! 

Sincerely,
Mark Smith

Special #1

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. These are the best reels Penn has ever produced from a long range perspective - relatively light, high drag capability, excellent freespool performance, USA made!

 

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 and Avet Raptor 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.   

For Fred Hall Show week, we are including a very nice dry-pack backpack in RealTree camo with the purchase of a Penn International reel.  So, off the top you get a nce promo drybag worth up to $100 on top of the free braid rigging which we supply. So, you can figure (if you go hollowcore) about $180 or so worth of incentives to sweeten your purchase of a wonderful new reel. That's a pretty good incentive to get off the fence and grab a new reel.

Special #2

Van Staal
VR 50

The VR Series

VAN STAAL QUALITY GETS MORE AFFORDABLE!

The new VR 50's are now here in Black or Silver! These new reels make the ownership of Van Stall quality reels more affordable, while retaining their legendary performance capability. Expectations are that this new series of reels will offer more anglers an opportunity to have true Van Stall performance while saving a couple hundred dollars in the process.

The new VR's offer a fully machined 6061-T6 waterproof aluminum body, sealed and waterproof drag system, spiral-beveled drive gear and pinion. You have MicroClick drag tuning accuracy with a solid stainless steel center shaft with titanium nitride coating for long term performance. The new reels can go bail-less by way of a simple conversion (except the new model 50). All reels are shipped with the bail, but you can easily modify the piece if that's your preference! Great idea, and excellent quality at very attractive price points.

We immediately noticed how stable the spool was on the little VR50, even at light drag settings it's rock solid in operation. Very Van Staal like character with this small reel, she's tight, great for lighter line surf use, but small enough to feel at home in fresh water. This is a reel you'll get a lot of use from over the years to come.

 

 

For 2020 and beyond Van Staal has added the VR50 in BLACK. 
Great looking little gem of a reel, with a nice thick protective anodized finish!

The diminutive VR50 has been the most sought after Van Staal model since it's preview at ICAST 2017. Perpetually back ordered, these reels are worth the excitement. They are very small, light, and capable of doing so many things for anglers.  Equally comfortable fishing saltwater and freshwater, these light weight reels fish above their class (less than 9 ounces!).

AVET HXJ Single Speed
Pefect for Alaska...
and a lot of other places, too.

Here's a dandy opportunity for you.  Avet produced their HXJ 4.2 4/0 Narrow a year ago, pretty much unnoticed. It was Avet's thought that the HXJ could be the perfect charter boat reel for Alaska fishing, typical stuff, 80# braid, 300 yds, high enough drag to deal with the big 100#+ flatties and appropriate cranking power given the lower 4.2:1 gears. Avet thought the piece would be a dandy jigging reel, too, also dropper loop fishing, lots of applications.  They didn't include the two speed feature, for many charter clients the second gear would have been confusing and charter operators have their hands full with newbies anyway.  Avet sold quite a few to charter skippers in AK, sold a few direct to public, but since the model was not made available to dealers they didn't sell very many (they weren't even on Avet's price list). After a year Avet figured they would like to clear their inventory... That's when they called me...

Compare the reel, consider that it's made here in USA, all machined aluminum - not cast, not composite, not plastic.  Reels carry a 1 year manufacturer's warranty - and we all know Avet stands behind their reels and offers very good factory servicing should that be necessary down the road.  Solid reels, capable of fishing up to 80# line well. Could be all you need for Alaska, could be just what you need in your local waters too.

Special #4

ACURATE Valiant
The most innovative reels
Accurate has ever produced!
FREE BRAID/MONO RIGGING OR
10% SAVINGS ON REEL ALONE

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.  Accurate showed off the 600 sizes at ICAST 2017, and hinted at two additional models, 800 & 1000 - (all in stock now).

COLORS - This has been a hard one for Accurate to address. They've wanted to offer color selection, but it's not an easy thing for the firm to accomplish given all the other time demands in the aerospace end of things.  They have now simplified things. Reels are available in silver with red trim as shown in most of our images. You can alternatively select the reel to be silver with blue accents similar to the red/silver shown on our site.  You can also order the Valliant in solid black as is shown below.

Specifications:

  • Patented Twin Drag Desigh

  • 6061 T6 Aluminum construction

  • Anodized for increased corrosion resistance

  • Smooth, easy find cam stop strike position

  • Lever drag recessed ergonomic thumb plate

  • Precision cut stainless steel gears

  • New design handle arm for increased torque and power

  • Anti-Reverse bearing with SEALED washers to prevent corrosion

  • Sleeved Spool for improved freespool performance

  • Manufacturer's stated drag measured at strike  20-36 lbs.

Nomad MadMacs
- NEW FOR 2020

There were two new lures shown off at ICAST 2019, the larger sized DTX Long Range sized minnow and the new MADMACS.  The DTX minnows gain depth thru their bill (bib) and weight distribution.  The MadMacs attain depth thru their front loaded weight and positioning of the connection point via the patented autotune system. These will act similarly to other planning head type designs. These are sinking lures, made to be high speed capable, to speeds greater than 15 knots when properly rigged.  They can also troll slow, as slow as 5 knots with an enticing vibrating action, even at very slow speeds. With the autotune system, thee lures will run true over a huge range of speeds.  When trolled at slower speeds the lures will attain a depth of 8-10 feet, at a super fast pace you'll get 3-4 feet of depth out of the lure. The key is that they will run true. You can see the connecting point in the image below, and the patented autotune system.

The one issue that folks have had with DTX Minnows, even when rigged according to direction, is that a skipper with a lead foot will make even the best deep diver dart out of the water upon occasion.  Many of the best LR skippers have a plan in mind, a set speed they troll for wahoo.  They're not looking over their shoulder to see if lures are bouncing around in the prop wash.  So, we reach a point where the very productive DTX Minnows are used in the "way back" position with the two inside trolling spots and the two corners which are tighter to the stern benefit from a planning head type lure that's less effected by boat speed, going cross current, bumping up speed, uphill, downhill...  That's where lures like the MagTrac, Bonita's and Marauders have their place. Now Nomad has lures that fit this application very, very well.

There are three sizes, two of which have our interest at present time, the 200mm and 240mm versions, they do make a smaller size.  The 200mm (8") lures weigh in at a hefty 315 grams = 11 ounces. The 240mm (9 1/2") size bumps that up to 14 ounces, 393 grams.

Savage Gear 3D Octopus
Now Product Introduction
first shown ICAST 2019

The hit of the show...again!

Savage Gear is on a bit of a roll. First the 3D Shrimps, 3D Mack Stickbaits, 3D Squids, and now naturally enough we have the best octopus imitation that's ever been made. If you have seen some video from ICAST, then you know of Savage Gear's 3D Octopus lure. These will become available in three sizes, we have now received the smallest size at over 3 1/4 inches in length and 115 grams/4 ounces. There will be two more sizes coming, larger and heavier. The lure pictured right is the smallest size, 4 ounces with a body of about 3 inches. (Pictured right is the smallest size in my hand).

The new lures are based upon a 3D scan of a real octopus. They feature an adaptive tie point, so you can work the lure effectively vertically as well as swim the lure.  The hook is a super strong 6X design, with a high quality superglow and UV finish. The tentacles are made from durable TPE material (again, do not keep these with your soft plastics).  The back of the lure as well as tentacles glow.  You can even attach an assist hook if you want.  The bottom of the lure has bubble catch belly rings, which act to create a bit of a bubble trail. Add a bit of scent if you wish, that will only increase the enticement.

From Savage Gear: The 3D Octopus is based on a scan of a baby Octopus, the Body is lead alloy and the tentacles is made from super durable soft TPE. The lure has almost zero resistance in the water on the drop and will dart wide on slow jigging. On the pause the lure will hang in a realistic posture, and the tentacles will move at even the slightest current. For the bigger sizes, 115, 175 and 300g, the lure has Adaptive tie-point bridge to ease retrieve from depth. The Super Glow paint and skirt along with a built-in rattle chamber and bubble catch, the 3D Octopus hits every visual, auditory and sensory points that triggers feeding and aggression from predator fish. Built Tough with extra heavy-duty hardware, the 3D Octopus is designed to take on the most Savage predatory game fish on the ocean floor.

Not much more to add other than pictures, and they do tell quite a story. The head is a very realistic chunk of lead alloy, durably finished with a couple eyes, glow back with lumo tentacles. Without a doubt Savage Gear's new Octopus is going to be a very worthwhile addition to any angler's tacklebox.  These things are excellent lures, the best and most fishable of their type.  Every bottom dwelling fish loves to munch octopus, life is indeed hard when you are tasty. Give the fish what they want, feed 'em one of these new lures.

GT Ice Cream
- GT as in Giant Travally,
Ulua for our Hawaii guys

I will reference this lure's predecessor (in my estimation anyway), Roberts Rangers. We've long used Roberts lures for surf fishing, our Baja bound anglers targeting Rooster fish from the beach have had success over the years. Some of our long range fishermen who travel south by way of the big boats out of San Diego also discovered the Rangers, and had good success on yellowtail. There were a couple of downsides, first and foremost were the supplied hooks and secondly the lures performance in windy conditions. The GT Ice Cream lures had to be built more ruggedly since they were targeting Grand Travally rather than striped bass (which was the design target for Rangers). You can see this distinction immediately when you look at one of the GI IC lures, their hooks are far stronger and they made very smart use of an assist hook rather than a fixed hook connected by a split ring.  The rigging is  superior and made for more serious fish than a 20 lb striped bass.

GT Ice Cream lures originated in South Africa, made specifically for fishing larger grade grand travally. The story of the name comes from one of the guys originally prototyping the lures who said the "the GT's hit the plug so hard and so much, that it was like ice cream to them? With great success in the Indian Ocean, the plugs have since traveled all over the world.

There are two basic styles, the Cone and Needle Nose. Both are designed for very long casts. There are differences for when and how to fish the two lure styles:

Cone: Slow steady retrieve on the surface. General purpose plug for surf casting. Ideal in choppy conditions. The lure features a dynamic weight system which ensures the plug swims on it's belly. The aerodynamic back section increases casting distance. Works well off the beach or boat.

Needle Nose: Designed for long casts with fast retrieve on the surface. This lure can also be used with a slower retrieve with the rod tip held up high, producing a strong side to side nose action. The dynamic weight system keeps the plug oriented on it's belly. Ideal in calmer conditions, works well from beach or boat.

UC XTREME SERIES RAIL RODS
The Best Rail Rods Built - Blank and Execution = PERFECTION!
But, that's just the tip of the iceberg, their other series of rods represent the same state of the art technology which sets
them apart from all other manufacturers.

Make use of Special #10 this week!

No one knows more about building rail rods than Randy Penny, he's the guy behind the 2x4's and other rods which revolutionized the SoCal's long range sportfishing scene.  Peter Williams and his son originally made the designs for the UC rail rods in 2012. Randy added a couple new wrinkles to the patterns once he arrived on scene. These are composite designs incorporating a lot of material given their intended application. Dual Helix carbon fiber build, longitudinally oriented Fiberglass, heavy Fuji triple footed guides, 3M rail pad over the grip (protection plus non-slip feature), triple wrapped, etc. All come with gimbals and cap.  

The Rail Rods are based upon the CP designs. These beefy sticks make use of 7 to 9 patterns in their build - like the CP's they make use of three types of carbon fiber as well as  longitudinally oriented fiberglass.

Seven and 7 1/2 foot length? It wasn't long ago that we considered anything longer than 6 feet impractical for cow fishing.  Buy times have changed and rod designs have progressed.  The length is related to the manner of fishing, use of the rail as a fulcrum.  In general, while a longer rod usually has better casting properties for distance, that's not the rational for these rods. They are made to fish the rail, especially as you get into the vertical game on a big fish.  The longer rods are more suited to the bigger boats, boats with wider rails like the Excel, RP and Rooster. The shorter 7 footers will load up better on the smaller boats, like the American Angler.  Having said that, there's another distinction between the two lengths, the longer rods have more material in 'em, the butts are larger diameter which requires more material in their build.  The 7 1/2 footers can fish the heavier recommended lines, while the 7 footers will load up better at the lighter drag settings. For example a Raptor at 7 feet does best at 60# and 20-22 lbs of drag while the 7 1/2 footer will fish 80# with say 24-25 lbs drag. You have a bit more leverage in a standoff at distance with the shorter rod, and more lift at vertical on a bigger boat with the longer rod.

XTREME SERIES RAIL RODS
UNITED COMPOSITES RAIL RODS! NOW IN PRODUCTION - RODS NOW ARRIVING!!!

Rods feature a very nice 3M rail pad on the foregrip, appropriate guides and power superior to all other rail rods on the market. LIGHTER WEIGHT, BETTER CASTING LIGHTER TIP, GREATER LIFT AND POWER - Made by the fellow who created the original 2x4 Super Seeker - if he says these are the best rail rods ever produced, believe it.

The new UC Rail Rods are quite frankly the best in the business, made by the guy that came up with the original concept while working for another USA rod making firm. The guides are Fuji's strongest, made as a rail rod should be, with some protection on the foregrip - in this case 3M's product which is darn expensive and effective (far better than XWrap or a slippery plastic material). Reel seat is from ALPS with dual lockdown for added security. The best blank, excellent execution on the build - custom quality in that regard and they are value priced since the factory wants to get these out on the water.
The Rail Rods are made on UC's strongest blanks, more graphite material used than any other - and it's the good stuff. Dual Helix construction of course. These are their best, the industries best, and they are priced aggressively. Two lengths offered, 7' and 7'6". You will find the tips light, great for casting a bait, and then the power comes on - plenty of it! Great lift, better than any other rod of this type made. The new UC Rail Rods will indeed become the standard by which all others are compared.

Okuma's HAWAIIAN CUSTOM
JIGGING/POPPING RODS
FREE USA SHIPPING!!!

Just a little background, we owe our inclusion of this series of rods to a client of ours from Washington state. Very good angler, fishes all over the world, knows what works well with experience well beyond my scope.  Rick B. spent some time yacking with me over the phone while I was working at the shop on a couple Sunday mornings.  While I can be myopic with my thinking, Rick helped point me towards this new series of popping rods.  Brought 'em in and we liked 'em a lot. The popping rod's blank into handle design provide folks with a long rod alternative which travels like a 6 footer. Checking actions, components, well, we had to bring in the rest of the lineup of the Hawaiian Jigging and Popping rods.  Excellent sticks, very good values, well worth owning.  And, if Rick says it's good, trust me, he's right, and he's taking one along with him for GT fishing...

The Okuma Hawaiian Custom Series rods are the latest addition to regional specific rods designed and built by local fisherman for the species and territory they are targeting.  Utilizing the latest in technology, these rods were built for the extreme conditions put forth by the Hawaiian shore-based fisherman.

In this updated version of the very popular original Okuma Hawaiian Rods, they strive to meet even truer actions that Hawaiian anglers are craving.  Having worked with local fisherman from various islands, these rods should meet the demands and specifications that are needed.

The components on the Hawaiian Custom Series rods are all top notch.  The spinning models all utilize ALPS-316 stainless guide frames with zirconium guide inserts for the use of braided or monofilament lines and feature a split butt design for reduced weight and improved balance.  

That's the manufacturer's take on these two popping rods. Both are made to be fished with spinning reels, two models 30-60 and 50-100 lb.  I'd suggest the lighter rod as a very good match with 40-50# line, the MHA heavy model rod with 60-80# at appropriate drag setting. This is a traditional blank into handle two piece design. You won't need to worry about a failure, this type of connection between the two pieces makes for a VERY strong rod. There's more material in the area where the two pieces meet, so strength is a given. Typical Okuma warranty, meaning no worries.  Good quality components, all ALPS, excellent bend on a very nice blank. These are very useful rods for a lot of folks, 8'3" for good casting distance, with a secure two piece design which allows the rod to travel at a 5' length. 

Now, for the "slow pitch" jigging rods in this series, same strengths, ALPS components, 24 ton carbon, helix build with unidirectional fiberglass in a composite build. (Yes, Okuma has been looking at UC for design inspiration).  Okuma got the bend right, got the build right and absolutely nailed the actions.  I like the 6'3" length, fine for vertical work but can also toss out a jig nicely. The conventional rods offer a trigger grip. Ridiculous power from such light rods, K-Concept Fuji guides and seats. Very nice jigging rods, and the price is exceptional if you've been looking at some of the niche players in this game. The Hawaiian "optimization" came from input from the guys at the islands who wanted a bit more leverage from their jigging rods. So, Okuma made the rods a tad longer and beefed up the handle area's stiffness. You won't find these rods bending thru the handle area like your typical Japanese style jigging rods which have little to no backbone - reminiscent of the old Kalen noodle sticks. The action is right on, and having a bit more control thru the handle section inspires confidence when you're on a larger fish. Okuma did their homework again, and came out with some excellent specialty rods that fish beyond their intended application.

 

  • - Split butt design to reduce weight and improve balance
  • - Features ALPS-316 grade stainless steel guide frames
  • - Zirconium guide inserts for braided or monofilament lines
  • - Specialized TPE foam material on fore and rear grip for durability
  • - All rods feature a 3K metal woven material for custom look
  • - 1-year warranty on all Hawaiian Custom rods

 * The lineweight/test numbers in the table above are ours, not the manufacturers. PE line ratings are shown for the jigging rods, and those numbers are confusing to most of us, myself included.  However, Sergey here tried his best to clue me in, and if you need more info please do contact him here. The PE rating was used in Japan, it's based upon braid line diameter, that's the match. But it's also the problem since diameters will vary for the same diameter line due to the quality of fibers used. Tests will vary for the same diameter line based upon the fiber quality.  As example, a PE4 may range from 40 to 60 lbs in actual test! That's a huge range, but again remember jigging rods should be matched to lure weight not line test.  From my perspective, based on feel, I'd say the HCSJ-M is a 30#, the MH is a 40-50 and the H a 50-60# stick based upon feel/pull as a "mono" rating on a more conventional 7 foot - MY subjective feel. If you are new to this style of jigging, you'll have to wrap your head around this a bit. You could say the rod is a function of the lure (wt) and the line test is a secondary consideration (line a function of what you think you'll require in terms of potential fish weight and line test/drag level required). - Mark.

CharkBait's Privacy Policy:

- We don't share nutt'n with nobody. 
We do not share any data with any other entity, we don't sell our mailing list, we don't have intrusive pop-ups, we don't collect data from your browsing only to send you nuisance reminders of things you know you've already seen.  We simply don't share confidential info with anyone. We try to treat folks as we'd like to be treated ourselves.


Orders over $150 are shipped FREE!* Orders less than $150 are billed for shipping. 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. (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.)

We're closed major holidays, both our offices and our shops.
New Years, Independence Day,  Labor Day, Thanksgiving & Christmas. We reserve the right to take off early if there's a great local bite...

 

PLEASE NOTE, we closed our San Diego shop July 31, 2019. (Love SD, enjoyed being a part of that community, but after 9 years and 3 vehicles I traded  the weekly drive for more time at our HQ and time w/family)
