  1. 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

  4. 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?
  5. Looking for a couple sinking Strategic Anglers or Siren Lures. New or used is fine. Let me know what you have Mike
  6. 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
  7. 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
  8. Looking to buy a spin setup for Tuna off the Cape. What do you have? Thanks!
  9. 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. 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.
  10. 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
  11. 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.
  12. 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. They feature Aftco Heavy-Duty Roller Guides throughout and a detachable Aluminum Butt-Section for longevity and ease of storage. Bent aluminum butts can be purchased and installed as well. All Guides are Double-Under then Double-Over Wrapped with the Highest-Quality threads and epoxies for strength and durability. These are two badass standup rods built by one of the best tuna shops in the North East. Will ship, but would prefer to exchange in person. Currently located in Gloucester or Boston.

  14. Heading out to Florida in November. I'm targeting some blackfin cobia and whatever's on the bottom, i'm looking at a 8k-10k gosa and wonder if this will work out with 50lb braid. I'm open to other reels also
  15. Looking to get into tuna fishing and wanted to get you guys opinion on these two reels. Thanks in advance!
  16. I just jumped on the baitcasting bandwagon. I ordered a LEXA HD 400 7.1:1. I haven't used a baitcaster in a looong time, but WTH, right? I do most of my fishing on jetties, almost never use bait and most stuff I throw is under 3oz. like everyone else. I'm looking for a plugging/BT/Tins rod under $200 to learn with that will be able to get distance and handle the load. Has to be 2 piece. Has to be under $200. Is anyone plugging and distance casting with these reels? Also, what pound test.should I be spooling the reel with, I'm also getting a boat rod to maybe fish for tuna.
  17. I'm going to have one or two swivel rod holders for bent butt tuna rods installed in 26' fiberglass center console. What is the best way to anchor then soundly? Do anyone make one that can be locked so it can't swivel when you want that option? Thanks for any help you can give me!

  20. Howdy folks. Just wanted to drop by and share some pictures from our recent tuna trip. Great way to start up our "salty" season. Hard work that at times paid off. Lots of bites that did not stick, bigger fish that whopped our butts, some that just got away and a few that we got to the boat. A very very stupid genre of fly fishing. So hard, so desperate at time, but at the same time so rewarding.
  21. Remember that they are just a stupid fish, and they will eat a hook with padding from a box spring... Not much action from the material, but holds a good profile, only takes a few minutes to tie, and can be colored to match any bait around! Materials consist of sidewall padding from a box spring, lead wire, WTP eyes, and sharpies. Let's see some more flies with unconventional materials.
