Hoping to do some fishing in Hawaii next year. Would love to charter a trip for yellowtail. I'm wondering how do you guys travel with your rods? Are you traveling with one piece rods and using a special case? Is there a baggage difficulty with this? Are you using multi piece rods? Which are good to use with a Shimano Ocea Jigger 1500PG? Will that reel do the job? Thank you
Looking 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?
Looking to treat myself for my birthday to a west coast charter perhaps to Coronado island this December. Want to target Yellowtail preferably. I'd like to spend a bit more money to get a more personal experience than what I see with the Malihini boat trips. Any options for open charters for a by his lonesome east coast guy? I also need advice on what to bring... my current plan is to bring my Nomad travel boat rod (7ft) with my Penn ssv6500ll spoiled with 40# braid and also my Andros medium heavy (6ft) jigging rod with a Andros 5niia lever drag spooled with 200yds of 65# braid. Maybe my 10ft medium surf rod with a saragosa 6k spooled with 30lb braid too for long casting? Also any advice on topwater or jigging lures and hook sizes to bring too. Want to do all my own rigging. Thanks
Im gonna be in South Africa for a work presentation in early December and have the opportunity to go to Capetown on the tail end. I want to do some fishing while there and I have read that summer Cape Yellowtail (Amberjack?) are available to go after on light tackle and maybe even from the shore cliffs at Cape Point. Anybody have experience on what techniques are good? I assume they are just a colder water Amberjack right?
