IRVINE, Calif. — – Southern California saltwater anglers are now being offered the ideal opportunity to ‘test fish’ the latest Shimano rods and reels. It’s all part of the “Teramar Tuesdays” fishing trips aboard either the sportfishing boats San Diego or Liberty, where Shimano staff will be bringing Teramar rods rigged with Talica, Trinidad, Tranx and Torium reels for anglers to use.
“It’s much easier to select the right rod and reel for your fishing when you have had a chance to feel how it performs on the water,” said Robby Gant with Shimano. “Along with the expertise of the crew from the San Diego and Liberty in putting us on fish, the Shimano crew will have up to 20-25 fully-rigged and ready-to-fish outfits to help anglers put fish on board.”
On the San Diego, based out of Seaforth Sportfishing – 1717 Quivira Road, San Diego – the Teramar Tuesday trips start May 3, and will continue to take place every other Tuesday from then through September 27.
Starting on Tuesday, June 14 on the Liberty based out of Fisherman’s Landing (- 2838 Garrison Street, San Diego), Teramar Tuesday trips also will take place every other Tuesday from the 14th through Tuesday, September 20.
Gant notes both boats focus on key species, with yellowtail being the target during the spring, leading to yellowfin tuna in July and through September. Anglers also have the opportunity to catch barracuda, rockfish, bonita and maybe even a Bluefin tuna.
All arrangements and proper licenses and passport needs are the responsibility of the angler, notes Gant, “but both Seaforth Sportfishing and Fisherman’s Landing are experts in making sure anglers have everything they need. They’ll help you out so you’ll have a great experience on their sportfishing boats, and our crew will help out so you an experience the best in Shimano rods and reels.”
