    Keep us informed how the Smitty belt is holding up.:D

    As I have said before one thing I like about your reports is you include the
    info on the terminal tackle used.

    Found photo of fish on 2 cool....
    Great catch!!!

    It looks like he was using one of the 7' OTI popping rods in this picture on 2cool.

    He was using OTI 5'6" 600g jigging rod to sling popper:).
    I wonder how far can Eddie cast with that rod.

    Congratulation on the fine catch.

    TJ, In this case it looks like he could cast it just far enough. Man, what a catch. I need some more OTI poppers.
