Appreciate the recommendations people gave on a reel, ended up with a Saltist 3kMQ, 20lb brain to 15lb leader on a 7' St.Croix triumph.
I get it now, these are the funnest fish to catch that we get up here. Went out with a local guide who had us into them within 15 minutes. Had shots at them all morning with a couple swirls just couldn't hook one. After hours of chasing them around I finally came tight. What an awesome fight! Ran me the entire way around the boat then took a blistering run. I couldn't help but laugh at how ridiculously strong these fish are. Already trying to organize another outing at the end of the month.
