About Me:

Interests (Hobbies, favorite activities, etc.):

What I do for a living:


  1. I’m looking for a light schoolie tuna (up to 60 pounds) that I could jig and chunk with, I would also to like it cross over for a light weight mahi, and other small pelagics trolling rod light stuff like Clark spoons, small daisy chains, feather etc. I plan on pairing it with a speedmaster 12 or 16 and I have been thinking about the trevala 6ft heavy, 6ft6 mh or h, black hole charter special either model, Phenix axis 7ft2 heavy or xh, or shimano terez 7ftmh. I want to have a rod that would be able to handle that size tuna but still have fun with a little mahi on the troll are there any rods that would be able to fill this role or am I dreaming? I would be getting two rods like this. I also forgot to mention it would be more for chunk and troll, jigging would be the last thing as I already have a dedicated jigging rod maybe like a spare of a friend doesn’t have one. I also have two heavier chunking rods and trolling rods too for 80-150 pound fish.
  2. We are a small NW museum. We believe this rod to have been built 1920-30 based on what little provenance we have. The guides are expertly attached. The fancy work at the butt of the pole mimics that done by sailors for a hundred years or more. The reel seat is a mystery. The guides too are a mystery. The signature area at the front of the butt has not yielded to our research. We think the rod was probably built to be a salmon rod, the base is 3/4 inch in width. We appreciate information on the guides, pole identification, and/or the reel seat.
  3. Buncha weenies , just went on a tuna trip it blew 27 knots with 12’ sees the whole time for 3 days I never left the rail.
  4. Building a blackhole 450 conventional for jigging large bluefin East of the Cape. I'll likely fish it with a Talica 20 or Torque 40 with 80-100lb hollow. Debating between Fuji MN SiC, Fuji HB SiC, or Fuji HN SiN guides. Biggest question is will the MN's hole up to 30-35lbs of drag? They are the lightest option. The HB's are huge, but I certainly wouldn't have any concerns with guide failure. If the HN's came in SiC they would be a good middle ground. Any thoughts welcomed! Mike
  5. I am building a tuna jigging rod using a black hole one piece 5'8 blank, and I can't decide on handle lengths for it butt and fore grips. Does anyone have any suggestions to lengths based on experiences? I figured a shorter, like 10-12in, and a decent fore grip, like 8in. Thanks in advance!

  7. Has anyone successfully used cork split grips on a parabolic jigging rod like a blackhole 350/450? Going to be building a 350 as a spinning rod with MN guides and was thinking about cork but worried about cracking.
  8. Selling a used Saragosa 18000F in good working condition, just doesn't get enough use. It's spooled with 80lb powerpro. $180 TYD via paypal. Mike
  9. Heading out to Stellwagen on Friday, any reports on the bite and what flys are working? We want to target albie on the fly.
  10. I’m looking for my first tuna rod and reel for party boat chunking. I was thinking a Penn Fathom 2 speed in 30 or 40NLD spooled with 80lb braid. Paired with a Saint Croix Mojo Salt 7’ HF rated for 65-100lb braid, a Shimano Tallus, or a dark matter HK. Maybe a Kevin Bogan rod if it’s worth the extra $. I don’t want to be undergunned in case I hook a large fish but also don’t want overkill. Budget around $700 for rod and reel. Thoughts?
  11. I have been asked to build 3 tuna rods. I have no idea as to who currently manufactures a quality blank for fishing tuna species here in thje mid-Atlantic. I'm looking for recommendations from experienced off shore rod builders. Many thanks Woody
  12. 2012 Parker 21 SE $31,900 located in Massachusetts Boat is in a slip on the Merrimack River in Salisbury, MA until mid October and available for sea trials for serious buyers. Awesome boat that I'm reluctantly selling because I recently bought a used Parker 25 SE. Oil changed every 100 hours religiously, all maintenance done at recommended intervals. 2012 Parker 21SE 2012 Yamaha 150HP 4 stroke outboard with 1266 hours 2012 Road King dual axel trailer with guide rails in good working condition 12” Raymarine C120 fish finder/GPS combo (flush mount in dash) Trim tabs which auto retract when motor is shut off VHF Radio 9 flush mount rod holders in gunnel including 3 swivel rod holders with backing plates 7 rod holders on leading post 4 rod holders on side of console 2 rod holders under gunnel that also fit gaffs/harpoons/etc 32 gallon live well built into leaning post with works extremely well and can keep a day’s worth of mackerel or pogies alive without issue.

Bow casting platform with like new cushion (always stored inside and never used on boat)
  13. Selling 2 50 TW’s condition as shown. Mechanically both are great. Butts not included in sale. $300 ea plus actual shipping.
  14. So this summer I want to start going 15-30 miles off Montauk for tuna, mostly popping and jigging with spinning, occasionally trolling those small Hogy lures. I want a combo for around $500. I want the rod to be a 1 piece. I will be targeting primarily small to mid-size bluefin, with the possibility of a bigger one. Right now I'm thinking of a pen slammer 10500, with a pen carnage boat spinning 50 - 100#. Any ideas?
  15. Looking for a couple sinking Strategic Anglers or Siren Lures. New or used is fine. Let me know what you have Mike
  16. Okuma Azores 90S, spooled with I believe 100lb PP braid and 100lb mono top shot. Upgraded carbon drag washers, Gomexus knob. Light scratches from hooks or boat. Never caught a fish on it. Used as a back up. $100 shipped. Think I have the box somewhere still. Star Aerial Jigging Rod, used but in great condition. Hook holder bent up as it gets in the way while jigging. Landed a number of 50-80lb yellowfin last weekend no problem. Just want something with a bit more lifting power and length for my style. $75 pick up preferred but have a tube. Add $10 for shipping. EXJS56XH Spinning 5'6'' 40-100 Mono 50-200 Braid 5 - 12 Extra-Hvy 9 8'' EVA 12'' EVA w/ Rubber Gimbal
  17. Looking to trade GRS for tuna plugs, open to different quality plugs. Mostly looking for stick baits. 2-5oz in ballyhoo, saury, sand eel, etc. I have several new and used, will take pics if anyone is interested. I can meet up between Merrimac, MA and West Yarmouth, MA or ship. Mike
  18. Looking to buy a spin setup for Tuna off the Cape. What do you have? Thanks!
  19. Brand new, never used. Never got chance to use it for tuna. Sting-O 7'6" tuna popping rod. Or just a heavy jetty stick. Great parabolic power. Casts 2 to 4~5 oz. 2 piece rod. Butt grip, aluminum reel seat with locks. Old but nice video showing same model lineup rod under load. https://youtu.be/TQjFppVUYW0 Manufacturer's video, weird music warning. Lower your volume before clicking. I remember it cost like $200?? back then which was a superb deal for a strong popping rod. That normally starts from $400 up to $1500+. Was a TD exclusive licensed product. So only they had it. $120 should be reasonable. Pick up only. Located in Brooklyn, NY.
  20. Penn Intl II 50 TW cosmetic boat rash no cracks, all functions work as they should. Custom built quality rod no markings except guides and butt 5' white blank wrapped in black and red gold, looks to be about a 130 class. Aftco guides all turning with removable Pacific Bay Alum butt. The rod is cosmetically excellent. $450 cash and carry, new Bedford pickup no offers at this time, will not separate. See Photos. Was at CMS yesterday, the similar rods 400 to 500+. Will run about a week here first then to Craigs. Thank You
  21. 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.
  22. I have a pair of 50-130 Fishermans Outfiter stand up tuna rods for sale for $500. The price is firm. They are constructed with 5’6″ Black E-Glass Blanks, 14″ EVA Foregrips and 12″ Butt-Section.
