Default Are Crocs still in style?

It's been almost five years since I've been Long Ranging. Going on a 5day in June to hopefully pull on some Yellow's. Thin wallet means what tackle I have is old school. I love to fish Iron or Plastic.Help me match up my rods and reels.

Croc's were never in style!

My initial thought on matching 'em up:

553 4.6 / 6480
553 5.5 / 660H
332 / 80J
TLD 20/40 / 610
Saltist 40h / 610
Penn 501 / 270H-8

IMHO, perfect. Old school or not, that's good tackle for your trip.
Yeah, lose the crocs, XtraTuffs never go out of style.

Extra Tuffs are IMO the worst most uncomfortable footwear ever invented...... as far as comfort Crocs are 1000% more comfortable than Extra Tuffs....I love my Crocs:P. Got then in 4 different colors. but I fish in Keen sandals . your gear is fine........

Wearing Croc's was said some what tongue in cheek. It just that it's been some time since I've been long range. I have a old Straggler jig box full of UFO, Kicker, and Straggler jig's mixed up with Tady and Salas. Does anyone still fish the fixed hook UFO #1's for tuna? Back in the day I remember fishing them on 25# for school size yellowfin. Should I take my Seeker 858 with a bantam 50 on it? What Misc. spec. are caught around Cedros? I've still got a few varieties to pull on while I still can. Grouper? Pinto Bass? Cabrella?

Lots of calicos so take your 858 and the Bantam loaded with 15#......there are WSB , halibut and grouper at Cedros.......alll can be caught with dropper loop .....

All those old school jigs will work just fine......

Crocs rule.....
