AdamHJeep posted a topic in West Coast FishingLooking for some advice for an east coast guy booking a 1.5 or 3 day trip in the next 2 weeks. I got free airfare (points from work) so all I need is the charter and uber to the boat. I have read alot of the recommended setups on the sportfishing pages. Here is what I plan on bringing so far... (Light setup for light casting iron) A Nomad boat spinning travel rod medium power 7ft (20-40lbs) with a Saragosa 10k spooled with 360yds 50lb braid. (Medium setup for live bait and heavier iron / yoyo) My Andros 7ft med power jig rod (65-120lb braid and 130 to 270 gram lure) with my new Tesoro 12s star drag spooled with 330yds 65lb Jerry brown and a 60yds of 40lb topshot. (Medium heavy setup) My Andros 7ft MH jig rod (80-150lb braid 170 -320 gram lure) with a Cortez CZ-55w spooled with 400yds 50lb mono. Is this ok for the up to 60lb bluefin they are getting now? Otherwise im debating on buying the new Accurate BV-800 to bring instead of the cortez. Would spool with 500yds of 100lb hollowcore and a 50 or 60lb topshot. Same MH rod. What yall think? I know its not true to form but I can't bring an 8 or 9ft callstar with me or back home... are they (8ft plus deckhands rod) really necessary?
