Suggested tackle and gear for your trip to Cedros

Limiting the gear to the most essential is key here. Plan on your 3 core rod configurations. One to fish Calico Bass, these aren’t your usual Calico Bass, they can be on the larger side, so a heavier set up is good.  Second rod, your favorite for surface iron fishing. The third set up should be a multi-purpose yoyo, live bait (mackerel) and dropper loop rod.

Gear Examples:

Rod: CalStar 700H, 800H or 6480H with 40#
Reel: Shimano Trinidad A16 or Torium 20HG

Rod: CalStar 700xh or 800xh with 50#
Reel: Shimano Trinidad A20

Rod: Heavy 7’, 8’ or 9’ Bass Rod(s)
Reel: Tranx (400) or Daiwa Lexa 300 Regular or Heavy or something equivalent


The above rod and reel combo's are to be used as a guideline. You may have other equipment that will fit the bill. If you do want to bring another rod or two there will be an additional fee so please be advised.
