Pro-staffer from Team Accurate, Gary Gillingham, had an opportunity to fish with a top-secret prototype reel on Searcher‘s last trip to Guadalupe Island on the 6-day Accurate Fishing and Seeker Rods open charter.
Here’s the story in Gary’s own words:
I had a chance to fish the new Accurate Valiant (BV 800) prototype reel on this trip.
I caught both a 133# yellowfin tuna and a 34# yellowtail on the reel! The reel was very smooth and cast like a dream with 100# braid and 80# top shot.
Anglers can look forward to fishing this reel for yourselves soon!

Trip 31 passengers were already excited about the awesome Accurate and Seeker gear coming aboard on this annual fall trip with Gary Gillingham and Fred Brandt – imagine how much their excitement multiplied when they found out that their trip destination would be Guadalupe Island! Team Searcher has been fishing the island for the past several trips, and recently decided that this trip should travel there too! Gary arrived early with his arsenal of loaner Seeker rods and Accurate reels, and Fred promptly got the shiny new Diablo-wrapped Seeker rods onboard for his raffle!
It’s not just about giveaways on this trip – Gary and Fred both bring their valuable and extensive knowledge of SoCal saltwater fishing to share and coach the 25 anglers through any situation! We will be following this trip closely through the Captain’s Blog – so check back daily for updates from their journey!
There were 13 Searcher passengers watching today as the crew offloaded the catch from our prior ultra limited load trip – and they were eager to board and begin their own luxury fishing vacation to Guadalupe Island! Captain Aaron recommended heavy tackle (including 80# fluorocarbon, an 80# rod with a 2-speed reel with 100# spectra, and 4/0 circle hooks were the recommendations today) and the anglers were quick to review their gear to prep for the action he is anticipating! We will post his regular reports from the field HERE – check back daily!
Gary and Fred will be utilizing our substantial loaner gear from these two manufacturers, as well as demo gear they will be bringing aboard. Anglers on this 7-day trip will enjoy trying out the superior quality rods and reels these two companies are known for producing, and have a chance at winning one of these custom red-wrap rods!
Each angler will receive a hat and shirt too. And the best news? There are still a few spots open, so book here: SEEKER/ACCURATE trip. Don’t miss out!
The 13 passengers on the Ultra Limited Load 6-day had to show up early for check-in this morning – based on recent determination by our captains to include Guadalupe Island as a fishing destination on this trip! The excitement level was high, with many scrambling to purchase heavy test fluorocarbon for their tackle box arsenal! Keep up to speed with our return to “the Lupe“: we will be posting all reports from the field HERE, for you!
We’ve supposedly passed the end of summer, but for the 20 passengers starting their 7-day trip today, it sure felt “summery”! Warm weather welcomed our passengers departing on their week-long fishing adventure today!
Capt Art was even showing off the new Fishworks design featuring our favorite lady: Searcher!
