  1. Am I dreaming to think I can use a Shimano SpeedMaster II12 and a Lamiglass bluewater rods to jig for Bluefin tuna east of Chatham. Or do I step up to a Talica and new rod.
  2. Hello all !! Im looking at doing a spinning trip casting for small-Med sized BFT in the general NY area. From what I know Aug-Sept is a good time. Anyone have tips or pointers on timing ? Charters ? BFT are new to me, but I have a decent amount of experience plugging For GT's and YFT and other species. Thanks in Advance.
  3. Looking to sell my NEW in plastic YAMAGA BLANKS 81/6 Blacky ( tuna special) popping rod. Rod is in perfect condition, no factory defects, built on spine , super straight, no issue whatsoever. This rod needs no introduction, a workhorse for guys chasing school bluefin and yellowfin in the 60-100 lbs, super easy to work lures with, purebred stickbait action with a forgiving tip section that loads flawlessly into a strong backbone and makes easy work of tuna and fast moving fish. I highly recommend it to beginners (because of its ability to keep tuna pinned to your lure, Quad Spine Concept that lets you fight tuna in a higher position without being afraid to lift the fish during the end game death circles and ease of use- very easy to cast and work lures). Guys with back problems or seniors will also appreciate the smooth, easy bend that makes it easy on your back when fighting a tuna with it’s constant head shakes. Rod comes with 2 year warranty as it was bought recently from the US distributor , and Dan at TackleNow generously agreed to extend the warranty to the new owner. Asking $525 shipped with tracking and insurance.
  4. Looking for some advice for an east coast guy booking a 1.5 or 3 day trip in the next 2 weeks. I got free airfare (points from work) so all I need is the charter and uber to the boat. I have read alot of the recommended setups on the sportfishing pages. Here is what I plan on bringing so far... (Light setup for light casting iron) A Nomad boat spinning travel rod medium power 7ft (20-40lbs) with a Saragosa 10k spooled with 360yds 50lb braid. (Medium setup for live bait and heavier iron / yoyo) My Andros 7ft med power jig rod (65-120lb braid and 130 to 270 gram lure) with my new Tesoro 12s star drag spooled with 330yds 65lb Jerry brown and a 60yds of 40lb topshot. (Medium heavy setup) My Andros 7ft MH jig rod (80-150lb braid 170 -320 gram lure) with a Cortez CZ-55w spooled with 400yds 50lb mono. Is this ok for the up to 60lb bluefin they are getting now? Otherwise im debating on buying the new Accurate BV-800 to bring instead of the cortez. Would spool with 500yds of 100lb hollowcore and a 50 or 60lb topshot. Same MH rod. What yall think? I know its not true to form but I can't bring an 8 or 9ft callstar with me or back home... are they (8ft plus deckhands rod) really necessary?
  5. Anyone here any reports of bluefin in the mud hole or any fish being caught actually caught?
  6. Hi, I was wandering what is the largest fish I could catch on my setup, I'm thinking about what weight- bluefin, yellowfin, amberjacks and similar fish. My Setup: Major craft Solpara SPS962MH - 20-60g Shore Jigging Medium Heavy Okuma Azores Z-55s- 29lb Max Drag (set to 6lb), it fits about 600m of line mentioned below Daiwa J-Braid 8x 20lb I'm especially curious about the bluefin and yellowfin tuna.
