Stumbled accross these Fall 2008 Gulf trip photos I had stored on another computer.

We CPR'd numerous reds in and around the surf from the kayak or by kayaking baits out to the color change.

Can't believe I didn't make it to the Gulf this year! mad

great catches


Hooking a fish is like playing string with a cat. The exact size, shape, color of string matters less than how you wiggle it- and little cats are easier to fool than big ones. John Gierach

That is a Penn International 12W. Extremely rare. It was produced in the 1977-78 timeframe.

I use it mostly in the surf when running out big baits with the kayak. It has also seen some offshore action over the years, on some of my 5 1/2' roller stripper rods as well as my 7' bait/jig rods. I installed a bearing sleeve on it and now it freespools like a dream for sight casting tinker mackerel on 20# dia braid/fluro leader to outside boils and other cruising fish.

Everything else on the reel is stock and it is in great condition. Performed all the maintenance myself. I originally bought it new for fishing the SoCal 1/2 day boats back when the big yellowtail were thick.

I basically got tired of getting spooled on my ABU 6500's and Penn Jigmasters when the big yellows would crash one of our surface bites. I can sling a 10" plus live mackerel or squid about 50-60 yards on my 10' Calstar glass blank and Penn 12W combo.

Along with the 30-40 pound class yellowtail, there were also giant white seabass up to 70 pounds. I basically wanted a reel I could land anything with on 20 pound mono, but I didn't want the weight and bulk of a Senator. There were not nearly as many reel options back then like now.

Sweet deal bro...keep em coming! thumb

I have always wanted to catch a white sea bass...always thought it would look and feel like a giant speckled trout...plus they are tasty.

Nice Shane. I've got the same blank (if it's a 100J) and admire if you can throw a bait on a 12W. I had my PENNs specialized to Cal Sheets to allow for a better free spool to throw bait to the big YFT. Of course now those PENNs that I have are outdated by the new line of reels but I'd still break out the heavy gear if I could find something to bite it out here:)

Yep, that is the blank. I have two of the honey colored and one black that I cut down at the handle to 9'.

The 10' calstar with a ABU 6500 or 7000 C3 is great for lobbing footlong shad and herring for stripers.
