  1. Would you do $25? These are sale at BPS for $12 rn
  2. SHIMANO LONG STROKE SPOOL pack it in a small drybag! Also an unpopular opinion….Medium Light powered rods for 1/2oz and under lure range. 8.6 length if you can swing it. With these more parabolic rods there’s way less benefits to higher end quality and sensitivity, upgrades here are mostly cosmetic/comfort and don’t add distance. Save your money use <20lb braid
  3. This is a great dam reel! Same company as “Truth” or “Seigler” in the early days of production. I have the exact same model and use it from boats as well casting from shore. Can chuck 8nbait as far as my LC spinning setups!
  4. Thanks I’ll pass for now didn’t see the request for Personal Check/MO the first time around… I prefer Venmo/PayPal thanks
  5. I’m looking at some of these, if the 49ers win this week and and go to the superbowl maybe I’ll come back for that 153!
  6. 2nd in line for the 3K. Is the 4k the same size as the 3k with bigger capacity spool, same as 4.5 size body, or in between etc?
  7. he must be a grower not a shower, this explains why all the fish here are small!
  8. IME Stripers will bite in pretty much any water temp that we experience in the bay area fresh or salt. Its more a question of if they’re around or not, at any given year/month/week/etc. Generally speaking colder water can definitely make things “tricky”, but stripers feed regardless of temp/salinity. They aren’t as temperamental as a Florida strain LMB for example where their metabolism completely shuts down in cold water. Within the Bay Area I think the correlation with water temp and its affect on baitfish/forage populations plays a bigger role in the process. Annual migration patterns also coincide with weather trends, and I’m sure water temp is a trigger of sorts for them to migrate, spawn, and repeat the cycle. That said there seems to always be schools of fish that break the norm, sometimes they’re around and biting when they shouldn’t be. Use it as an indicator but don’t base your decisions entirely on water temp!
  9. looks like the tip is missing an inch or so? Can you confirm the length and by chance you by chance have an exact measurement?
  10. Find the bait is step 1. Fish will be there. Take it a step farther and figure out how when and why the Bass are feeding on this bait. Could be the tide and structure funneling bait into an ambush point. Could be related to a moon phase, are the bait spawning? Bass often prefer the safety of darkness is it a night bite? IME simply putting enough time into the spot will reveal what’s happening especially if you can check the structure at low tide there is usually more than meets the eye (observe entire tide cycles). where did the bait go, where did it come from? They often feed when its ideal for them to hunt, and then swim away and come back again on the next tide. Good spots often create ideal hunting conditions where its easy pickings for the bass, and they’ll come back and back again like clockwork. Get up close and personal with the bait and think outside the box, and most importantly put that time in to observe what’s happening!
  11. Sorry for the slow response, I’ll withdraw my offer Mr Big can have it. Its a great deal for 190!
  12. Sorry I think that might sound confusing! I would like to make an offer on the 4k only for $10 off and/or throw in the box. Thanks
  13. I’m not super interested in the 3000 tbh, really only wanted the 4000. can you do $10 off and throw in the box from the other reel? I’m sure someone else will be interested in the 3k if not, I’ll still take em both for 300 if you change your mind!
  14. 300 for both? Also, can you clarify is 4000 never used new, or like new? Thanks
  15. I would respectfully offer $165 plus shipping costs to 94110.
  16. Would you take orange? Used 2x like new.
  17. If you split with mastervetstripe I’d be interested in the belt and potentially the bluewave bag if you could price those. Thank you
  18. @cabezon I fished the same style and spots as you for many years. I would consider this an in-between setup. Generally most guys who are dedicated to throwing lures opt for shorter lighter (7’6”-8’6” 1-2oz range, 3000-4000 size)…and for throwing bait usually 10-12’ 4-6oz range 6k+ sized reels. I think this combo will work great for you, the added distance will give you an advantage, along with extra capacity for stepping up to 30lb or 40lb braid. Totally different style of fishing than what most ppl here do, but super fun! And good eats. Common Rockfish are usually only 1-3lbs, with an occasional 5lb fish. Possibility of a 10-20lb but extremely rare. The real challenge lies not in the size of the fish but the terrain, extremely snaggy and often high up on cliffs. You need the big guns to horse the fish up and out of the crevices the dwell in!
  19. I live in SF, whats the price for local meetup? I’m curious on the size, of the tubes. You mentioned it can fit several plugs ea…Can you measure the tubes so I can get a better sense on size? Thanks Also, do you have any other gear that you’re selling, rods plugs etc. I’m specifically looking for a surf belt also. D
  20. This is probably a long shot, but would you do $166 shipped? Its $266 new on Amazon prime….or perhaps trades for fishing gear?
