We are using Shimano rods equipped with Shimano Tiagra two speed reels. This setup is perfect for fishing the depths of Cook Inlet and the Gulf of Alaska. This allows you to use “second gear” making it very easy and comfortable to reel in that barn door halibut! Also!! We are one of the few charter boats that offer a second bottom fishing rod/reed setup. This consists of Shimano Rods equipped with Avet reels, our favorite jigging rod and reel combo for those fun filled jigging trips! It is lightweight and fast action (yet very durable) allowing you to jig up that monster halibut, lingcod or yelloweye rockfish. It is also a preferred favorite to use while targeting shallow water halibut where the traditional heavy halibut gear is not needed.
This fast action fish will be targeted using either conventional or spinning rod/reel setups! You pick! Both are Shimano rods and reels. This allows you to choose your setup that’s most comfortable for you to catch these tasty colorful fish TACOS!!!
We will be using Shimano trolling rods with Shimano reels to battle the hard-fighting King and Silver Salmon. The Current Lady is equipped with 4 electric down riggers and troll poles. This will make your salmon trolling experience fast action and very effective!
