Ready to Go to the Canyon
Have Everything you Need??? Offshore Fishing Checklist
Penn International 50-80 wide two speed
(We also carry 30 wides and 130 wides) or ... Shimano TLD 50-80 wide 2 speed.
Strong Quality rods are essential in landing your big fish. Be sure you have only the best!
Sabre - Star or Lamiglass. Let us match your rod to the reel you use.
Once you hook up, don't take the chance on losing your fish due to old or frayed line.
Pick up a 1000 yard cake of Momoi 80 to 100 lb test. If you already have good line on your reel, take an extra in case you get spooled!
Offshore fishing demands sharp lethal hooks that will hold on to huge fish.
Be sure to have plenty of Gamakatsu 6/0 hooks in the early season, and 8/0 in the late season. These hooks have proven to be the best choice for fish ranging from 50 to 300 pounds.
Leader Material
Offshore fish like tuna and swords have excellent eyesight.
Seaguar or Momoi Flourocarbon Leaders in 25 yard spools, really make the difference in hookups. Completely invisible underwater, best way to trick the fish to your bait!
When fishing in 300 feet of water, the fish could be concentrated at a certain depth.
We recommend Egg Sinkers in 2 ounce to 8 ounce sizes. These sinkers are designed to ride on the line without fraying your line.
Barrel Swivels
Fishing heavy tackle means "No Weak Links".
Be sure to pick up a couple packs of Sampo or S-Pro Swivels in 150 to 200 pound test. Both are ball bearing swivels, and become the most essential part of fighting large fish!
Fighting Belt and Harnesses
Get yourself a Braid fighting belt or harness. Be sure to wear it the entire time, while fishing.
Foul Weather Gear, Boots & Gloves
Weather can turn at the canyon in a moments notice! We carry suitable fishing gear from LaCrosse, Grunden and Proline. All are waterproof and used by the pros!
You can catch alot of live squid for bait at the canyon, pick yourself up a couple Yozuri squid jigs. We also carry flourescent light sticks for swordfishing.
