I heard a 340 lbs yellowfin tuna was caught on Avet LX on the Pacifico out of Puerto Vallarta yesterday. The angler fought 3 1/2 hours to land the monster with LX filled with 60 lbs braided line/80 lbs fluoro carbon and Cape Fear rod rated to 40 lbs. :eek:
Nothing surprised me anymore. :)

Hi Kil, as long as you are on a drift, you can chase it and get vertical
on the fish anything is possible. If your anchored its a different ball game.
Thay catch huge marlins on 4lb-6lb test this way.

What a great idea. I've never thought of welding hooks on the sideplates. That Avet would be a great tuna bait. He must have used one those candy colored ones. Jigging an Avet might turn into a new sport for me. Thanks for the tip!!!!!!!!:D

Nice fish! Toooo much work though, 3hrs on a big fish is not so much fun. I'll stick with the 80-100lbs shibis and a bunch of blackfins. Still an awesome awesome catch

A few years ago, I bought four Avets. :) All four reels broke the first trip. :mad: Pinion gears and gear shafts shattered. I tossed two overboard to remind me not to buy crap again. :D I beat the other two with a sledge hammer and then burned them in a fire pit. If anyone brings one on my boat now, I either toss them in the water, or keep them for sinkers.:cool: It's up to the owner. Most choose to be used as a sinker.

I might add that Avet's aren't the only reels that see the bottom on the GOM.:D

'Smoke: Were those reels 'Sips? :)

Russ

No, I bought them myself.:mad: I have a few Sip friends. One of my best friends is a Sip. He knows my rules. I do something very special to people who dare walk on my boat wearing something with a horn on it. It's very funny to me, but most that get the treatment don't think it is very humorous.
I might add that it happens before a line gets wet. I figure its better to teach someone a lesson early in the day. I always give them the option of jumping overboard and swimming to port.

I don't mind a little harassment, but I also like to dish it out if provoked. Everybody has their favorite college. That's what makes college athletics fun.
I think it's a good idea to support your team and school no matter which one you choose. I gather Russ that you are a TU fan. That's fine, as long as I don't have to hear about it for an extended amount of time.
